Our group stayed at the Chateau for six nights. I had a room at the top of the Tower. Although I whined about the climb up the stairs, I wouldn't have changed a thing. To sleep in the tower of a castle is a dream come true. The bath/shower worked great, and it was kind of fun to have the toilet separate in a cubbyhole off the staircase of the top floors. I chose the smaller bedroom of the top floor suite. The decor was OK, the bed comfortable and the view of St.Michel Mont Mercure across the way was stunning. There was no musty smell at all (I'm very sensitive to that). The castle grounds are simply lovely. I couldn't stop taking photos. We were a self-catering group and made our own breakfast in the Pavilion kitchen. We also used the Tower kitchen one night to make dinner in both kitchens. The chateau is right in the town, so it is easy to walk out to get groceries. We had 3 dinners with the Vicomte and Vicomtess. Each was a gourmet delight, and it was so much fun to eat in their dining room. One of the dinners was the Renaissance Dinner where we were all provided costumes to our measurements. It doesn't get any better than that - dinner in a castle in full costume. By the end of the week, I was ready to come back yearly. The only drawback was that the WiFi worked only in the courtyard, but they were working on it. And it was great fun to do my online work from a castle courtyard.
