As predicted from the website and previouos reviews, I just loved Chateau de Barbirey, it's rooms, gardens and the hospitality of the owners and staff. What a truly gorgeous, peaceful and relaxing place. Jean-Bernard and Tequila (the dog) provided a great initial welcome/ introduction to the chateau and gardens, which set the scene. The staff provided great advice provided on local restaurants and enjoyable tourist routes to travel as well as great tea /coffee and breakfast. The rooms were tastefully decorated and of generous proportions, with super comfortable beds and nice views of the grounds. When travelling with a number of others there are a number of accommodation options /rooms to choose from, which is also great. Fabulous location for a wedding/ birthday party celebration. Highly recommended. I'd love to return some day.
