We spent several extremely enjoyable days at the chateau. Luc and Florence are wonderful hosts and our room and the facilities were first class. Our room the Chambre des Buis had a lot of character, having been tastefully converted from a vaulted ceilinged room under the main chateau, and was comfortable and well appointed. The small pool was a godsend... More

The location, incredible and thoughtful renovation to this wonderful castle is of course part of why you would visit this place, but after having done so - I can say that it wouldn't have the same atmosphere at all if it wasn't for the owner / hosts, Luc & Florence, whom make you feel like you've stepped into their home...

One of the best we have ever stayed in. Fabulous location, good hospitality and great value for money. Plenty to do without getting back in the car, great walks around the village plenty on inexpensive restaurants, canoeing on your doorstep and easy walks along the Ardeche river.
