We stayed at Champagne Castle for three nights in December 2013 with our three year old. It was a lovely experience with lots to do for kids and adults.
My daughter loved the pony rides, the animals and the jumping castle.
We could leave our daughter with a wonderful babysitter when we wanted to go hiking in the mountains.
The food was excellent and we defnitely picked up some extra kilos!
The service was really good and friendly. We had a flat car battery and the hotel manager sorted us out within a few minutes of asking!
The only thing that would've been nice is if there was a baby/small pool for the kids. The pool was very deep, even at the shallow end, so difficult to swim with a toddler.
