Me and my three children stayed for one night when we went to visit Renne-Le-Chateau and several ancient ruins in the area. The building is old and full of character. The spacious rooms are perfect, simple but luxurious and very romantic with views of the forested mountains surrounding the village. The little things are taken into account, like a hair dryer and an adjustable mirror in the bathroom. There is a swimming pool, an outside terrace as well as indoor room to eat dinner in and it is very tastefully presented and immaculately clean. No wifi in the rooms - only drawback, otherwise perfect. The dinner was delicious, but a set menu with no choices, one starter, one main and one desert - I have no problem with this, especially for the price which was 59 euros per person for the lovely room, dinner and hearty breakfast, very good value.
The hotel is very quiet and peaceful, as is the tiny village around it. No shops nearby so take everything you need with you. HOWEVER do not trust your sat nav to get you out of the area, my expensive Tomtom sent us on a route through the mountains to our first destination which started off as road but became nothing more than a horse track through the forest. It took us three hours to drive about ten miles. The kids had to get out and throw rocks out of the path of the car, and hold back branches. There was no turning back. I very nearly abandoned the car. I am amazed it survived. The area is very very beautiful, but isolated. You have been warned.
