We stayed in this castle for one night as a stopover, on our way to the Provence.
We found this castle to be exactly as we had expected from the photos and description.
This is indeed a wonderful place, with green and beautiful gardens and views.
The host was very friendly and very attentive, helping us with the typical things you need for a little child, helping us with a parking spot for our car and more. We didn't have to ask for anything!
We were upgraded to the Family room at arrival, which was very clean and comfortable, with a beautiful view. Bathroom with separate shower and tub, all in ancient style, while functioning perfectly with all comfort of today.
Despite this being an historical building with the typical sounds that go with old squeaky floors and stairs, the night was absolutely quiet, and even in the morning we did not hear sounds of others (there were 2 or 3 other families staying in the castle as well). But then maybe we were the first ones to wake up :-)
Breakfast was typically french, croissants, bread, coffee etc. and again great service by the host, having prepared a baby chair and cereals for our little one. Price was already included in the total fee.
All in all I think it was certainly value for money (without taking the upgrade into account) and we hope to stay here again in the future!
