This small chateau is invisible from the main road and I only experienced it as a guest of friends. However it is a wonderful experience with food of a very high level in a setting of absolute tranquility and plenty of space outside for kids to roam around. The chef has travelled internationally and speaks English. A lovely relaxed setting,... More

It was astounding. We arrived late at night not really knowing what to expect. Everything around was very dark except for the lit entrance of the chateau. I was the brave one, left everybody in the car and knocked on the door...and then there was light! And great smells from the kitchen, and laughter, and there was lovely Barbe who... More

Fantastic food served in a very quirky chateau. Excellent value for money. You get to see Philippe working whilst you eat as kitchen is open plan.

This Chateau is really unusual in that the restaurant is round - even the loo is round. The welcome is warm and friendly (Madame speaks a little English if you can't speak French) and the food delicious. This is quirky and interesting and well worth visiting.

Such an amazing building and furnished to a really quirky and interestiing standard. We had a lovely meal and were made to feel very welcome as the owners attended to our order. When in the area again, we will make a point of eating at the Chateau again - its certainly worth taking a detour to experience the fairy tale.

We were really well received; a very good choice of menu at a very reasonable price. The setting is beautiful in this fairy-tale castle. A "must" if you are in the area. You will not be disappointed.

There were 4 of us that ate here. 2 had the fish and I and the other one had the duck. All of us had the salad, dessert, appertif and wine. The owner did all the cooking. He only buys enough food for the evening reservation. The food was excellent. Every time I come to the region I always order... More
