“enjoyable castle stay”
Reviewed August 20, 2011

We enjoy visiting palaces, castles and such historic buildings to experience how the life was in the past. Most of the time we are just visitors, after spending a few hours we leave. Chateaux de Barben gave us the chance to deepen the experience by opening their doors for overnight guests. There are a few rooms available, we had the chance to see two of these and both were fantastic. Big rooms decorated with antiques, very clean, high ceilings, spacious bathrooms, views overlooking the green surroundings of the castle, it is a magical and relaxing place. Both in the room and walking around the castle one can feel like as if traveled in time and now living in a fairy tale. We enjoyed our stay very much and wished could have stayed longer. We arrived at the chateaux with our car, parked at the bottom of the last ramp. From here there is a short climb to the main gate and up the stairs. It is advisable not to bring heavy suitcases as several flights of stairs with heavy bags would not be easy. Once you check in you can walk around the castle or just relax in your room or at the cafe in front of the boutique. Meeting for dinner is at 7.30 in the main terrace with the hosts. It is nice to enjoy sunset here with a few drinks and appetizers and have a pleasant conversation. Dinners and breakfasts are served in the kitchen among the many interesting displays of kitchen utensils of the old times. It is a very pleasant place to eat.
