Our 6 and 7 y.o. daughters were very excited to stay at an actual castle. This place had a room that could fit all 5 of us (we also have a 7 y.o. boy), which is uncommon in the Loire. The staff at this beautiful little castle was friendly and professional, and the grounds were very nice. The room itself was separate from the castle, accessible through the dinning room. The room was called the trogand was a cave in the solid rock hillside. The main castle ground floor on one side was similarly built into the hillside as are many in this area. The room was very large with high, interestingly shaped ceilings. It was interestingly lighted and nicely appointed. It had a characteristic mineral smell from these stone enclosures, and was just a little damp. We all said wow when we stepped in. The grounds are attached to woods and a hill for fun exploring, a nice but chilly pool, and a terrific restaurant with a pleasant wine list. For food was excellent and the wait staff were pleasant enough. Their children's menu principal dish was Dorade fish with veggies, which was wonderful and to my surprise our sometimes picky eaters finished it off completely with joy. The chef came out to talk with each table which was a nice touch. Just about every day we had a new house full of bike tourists arriving/departing. I was disappointed in the lack of WiFi in the room and pretty much anywhere except right at the front desk. Overall it was a great experience but about 3 days is enough for staying in the cave.
