We rented the Chateau for a week for a family gathering to mark a special occasion. The reviews and web site seemed too good to be true... In retrospect they do not adequately relay the wonderful nature of this special place. The grounds are beautiful and the Chateau itself is a perfect combination of modern amenities and timeless charm. Thirteen of us were more than comfortable.The town is small but the residents are welcoming. It is a great spot from which to explore this beautiful region. The local restaurants are great and reasonable (don't expect Michelin, just good local products prepared well).
Finally, I can't say enough about hosts Martine and Jean-Marie. They are at once helpful yet unobtrusive. We felt like we were staying with old friends. Be sure to ask Martine to arrange a tour and tasting at the Vinyard, a special experience.
Just go here.... you won't be disappointed.
