We stopped here for one night on a journey from the south to the north of France.
The chateau is just beautiful, in a picturesque, quiet village, with immaculate grounds. When we drove through the entrance we were instantly impressed.
Everything within the chateau is beautifully appointed and to the highest standard. The thoughtfully positioned lighting on steps and walls add to the chateau's already great ambience.
We were a family of two adults and two children and we were meeting another two adults who travelled in the opposite direction. We mentioned this to the Chateau when we booked, and when we arrived, we were delighted that they'd put us in a quiet tower of the chateau, on the top floor with two rooms to ourselves. We felt like it was our own private apartment up there. It was just perfect.
We were told that the rooms had been refurbished in May, and indeed, they were absolutely immaculate. Fitted to the highest standard, our room featured both a shower in a wet room (which was fantastic) and a large free standing bath in the bathroom. The room was extremely comfortable and we really didn't want to leave!
All of the staff were great and made us all feel very welcome; from offering to set up a toddler bed in our room for the little one when we booked, to calling about our meal reservation before we arrived, to discussing wine tasting, the history of the chateau, and other activities in the area, it was all first class.
We had dinner together in the restaurant which was excellent, and despite there being a wedding reception in another part of the chateau, the staff were still fully attentive, but discreet, exactly how good serving staff should be. The meal was excellent.
My only suggestion for improvement would be that the breakfast buffet was fairly basic and a slightly greater variety would address this.
All in all, this was a wonderful experience and one that my family will cherish for a long time.
We will definitely be back for a longer stay in the future, where we look forward to exploring the surrounding area.
