Everything in this chateau from the moment you see the top of the towers as you drive into the village captivates and delights every fibre in your body. I have dragged my husband from Neuschwanstein to Versailles, but this little chateau lets you be, live and feel the magic that is lost in the overpopulated tour filled historic ones. What a wonderful gift of the owner Cynthia to open the doors of her home for people to stay and feel truly special for a day or two.
To all travellers yet to come, take a moment to look up and around. Every single statue is different and some often taunt others across the room. There are fascinating stories of its origin and throughout the centuries, so be sure to ask.
The staff are, for lack of a better word "Family" and we look forward to returning to see them all again soon.
We stayed in the Tower Suite, gorgeous!
As we were there for our wedding we were able to see all of the rooms as we hired the entire Chateau for 3 nights. Every room is unique and special.
Our wedding had 84 guests and though the Chateau only housed 32, I wouldn't of had it any other way.
If everyone was able to stay it would have lost it special magic and exclusivity. I hope it always keeps it... and I hope everyone acknowledges the generosity of the owner to accept people into her home.
