My father and I stayed at Chateau de Labessiere in late June 2016, in order to tour the Verdun WWI sites. The chateau is beautiful, and you can see it has been lovingly restored. We had the largest room, and it was very clean and comfortable for our two nights. Perhaps the main attraction, however, is the food! Our first... More

Hi Ashley What can I say, after your nice review about our chateau. It is realy a pleasure for my wife and I to read your text. We especially made the choice to take few people here, just 2 rooms, sometimes 3 , but not more, so we have plenty time to reserve a warm welcome to our guests. We... More

This was truly a marvellous find. The rooms are as pictured on the website and we too, can attest to the fantastic food prepared by Marie-Jose and delivered by Rene! The attention to detail is everywhere- the bottled water in the room, the quality and quantity of food, undercover parking, books on the military history of Verdun and the information-... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, May 14-17 and had an unbelievable time! Other reviewers are absolutely correct describing the rooms, Rene's helpful expertise in planning excursions and the meals. They are all 100% true! Our room was huge and beautifully decorated. It had a huge terrace which overlooked the gardens and heated pool. I felt like French royalty. The... More

We stayed at this chateau for three days in late September and were thrilled with the service, the food, and the proprietors.

Our one night stay with René and Marie-José at Chateau de Labessiere exceeded all our expectations. We frequently travel in France but have never experienced hospitality to match this.

We stayed at the Chateau in October 2014 for 2 nights and it was exquisite. Rene and Marie-Jose have lovingly restored this beautiful Chateau. The food is 5 star, and the service is brilliant. It made our stay so very delightful - we felt like kings and queens.
