This is a lovely place to stay and Violaine and Patrick are wonderful hosts. Our room was spacious with an updated bathroom. The garden is beautiful and peaceful. Violaine made us a delicious dinner with ingredients from their garden. We especially loved that Violaine and Patrick joined us for dinner instead of serving us as guests and leaving us to dine alone. We had a very nice evening of good food, wine from their chateau and great conversation. Breakfast was enjoyed with the hosts and other guests, again, with a lot of Violaine's homemade treats. Be sure to read the book in the salon as it describes the history of the chateau and how it was handed down through the generations. There are lots of pictures too. We were only able to stay one night but wished we could have stayed longer. Highly recommended!
