We stayed for two nights at this hotel in a room on the first floor overlooking the pool and the vineyards beyond. It was beautiful. The staff were lovely and we were happy we chose to stay in a real chateau. The room was decorated in a simple provincial style which worked well given the location.
The only real negatives were that the rather small shower/bathroom. It would have been lovely with a big old bath. Plus the hotel rules stated that you could not bring picnics and eat them on the terrace. We understand that there is a restaurant there however somewhere else to sit and drink a bottle of wine and watch the sun go down would have been perfect.
We did dine at the restaurant one was night and we were very happy with the food and wine.
Chateauneuf-du-Pape itself is a short drive away although it was mostly shut over the weekend (everything shuts at noon Saturday until Monday morning). The scenery is just stunning though and well worth a visit.
