Thank you to Colas and his family for providing such a lovely place, and thank you to Clemence for her care and kindness. We had a lovely stay, which was initially for one night until we realised we were able to stay another night due to a change in our travel plans. Regret averted!
The chateau, with its gardens and grounds was a pure delight, as were the elegantly decorated rooms. Clemence entertained us with stories and reenactments of mouse eating owls in the pigeon 'tower' and happily woke early to serve us breakfast on one of the mornings.
I feel all of my hours researching on the internet for places to stay was completely warranted when I laid eyes on Chateau de Barbirey. I don't think there is one inch of it that I didn't capture in a photograph!
Thank you again and again. Hopefully we can visit again soon. In the meantime, I'll recommend it to everyone I know!
