This was one of the best hotel experiences I’ve had so far. The hotel is about 50 km to the west of Metz. The surrounding area is very rural, but the roads leading to the castle are well developed (no chance of getting there by train). My partner and I stayed there for my 40th birthday and because it was off-season we were the only guests in the castle, so it was very quiet. Also because it lies at the end of a small village on top of a hill means there is no noise from cars or other traffic, very peaceful. The room we stayed it was very much decorated in the style you would expect: old furniture, antiques and old fireplace. No TV in the room; that would have destroyed the feeling you get from an old castle. They do have free wireless internet access, so if you can’t be without a connection to the outside world, you can still stay there.
The two hosts, Catherine and Francine, were very attentive and welcoming and did everything to make us feel absolutely at home. As my partner booked a package, we had a private dinner in the “salle de burgraves” of the hotel which is a roughly 200 sqm grand old hall with an enormous fireplace, another memorable experience. Thanks to Fabien for the wonderful courses.
Finally, it’s definitely a recommendation if you want to spend romantic days and night at on castle.
