The previous reviews regarding Irene and Michael's hospitality were spot on. My 81 year old mother, 18 year old daughter and I stayed for four nights and had a marvelous experience. We had delightful and delicious dinners for three nights and wished we had dined there the fourth night as well but we had made plans to tour the surrounding area. Irene graciously adapted the dinner to include vegetarian options for my daughter.
I was a bit concerned about how the three of us would find things in common to discuss with our hosts that would include all our interests, but Michael and Irene are great conversationalists and have varied interests. Our conversations always kept my 18 year old daughter's attention, regardless of the topic. Our hosts were also so gracious in giving suggestions of what to see and do and where to dine in the surrounding areas. My mother had a challenge walking up the stairs to our room, however, Michael was always the complete gentleman in assisting her. They pampered her and she felt especially well taken care of. They made her feel comfortable by having her relax in the living room when we returned from our site seeing while we waited for dinner to be served. We very much enjoyed dining outside with a beautiful and expansive view of the countryside. We had rented a car and I needed to get the tank filled with gas. A friend of theirs was visiting and he offered to take me to fill it in town since it is much easier for a local than a foreigner. These simple niceties are experiences that one would not necessarily find if staying in a hotel. I would highly recommend a visit to Chateau Brinon!
