5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

Stayed one night at this delightful Chateau. Lovely setting and grounds, swimming pool etc. Family owned and run. Very good room, friendly, helpful and professional staff who kindly allowed us to stay an extra 2 hours after check out time. Extremely good restaurant, food and service. Highly recommend.

Beautiful location for a dream wedding. The staff was amazing and the accommodations were well worth the international flight. Food was excellent and the wine cellar was just a surprise addition to the amazing views.

Room Tip: Any room will work when you make it here...you just need some sleep, right?

Postcard after postcard. That's how we feel about the pictures we took during our stay. Unfortunately, we only stayed 1 night. My only suggestion is to reserve bicycles before you arrive. In my opinion, without bicycles, there's not much to do. One has to be excited about biking the countryside while being there. You will get the true experience. As nice as the pool is, you're wasting your time.
The restaurant was absolutely excellent! Even our 10 and 8 year old enjoyed the 1st class service. Not snobby, but plain old nice and hospitable. Save room for the Cheese Cart. Best I've seen. And consider having a glass of wine(s) during the dinner as the sommelier was so kind and spot on when pairing our dinner with regional wines.
The only thing I can think of that was a little disappointing and believe me I'm being picky, is the receptionist(s) could have been a little more helpful and inviting when answering some of our questions.
But overall, I'm so happy we made this a stop on our trip. The best dinner we had for our 2 week trip in France.

This small chateau is very beautiful and set in lovely grounds. We ate here on the terrace on a beautiful summer evening, overlooking the garden and the surrounding countryside.

All the staff, particularly the maître d', the woman who explained the menu to us and the sommelier, were charming.

We decided to have the 'lobster' menu. Everything was beautifully presented and each course had an individual taste. The selection on the cheese board was very tempting and there was a great selection.

Perhaps some of the staff could be encouraged not to move around quite so quickly, as sometimes this detracts from the tranquil atmosphere.

Overall, a lovely meal in a beautiful setting.

Completed our swing through the Loire Valley with a stop at this unusual former fortress. Our room had the bath in the former turret, with was clean, well designed and housed a wonderful shower and bath. The toilet was located off the wardrobe about 20 metres across the room, but the accommodations were quiet and restful. The room was well appointed. dinner was above average and breakfast was extremely well done in a side building off the main property. One of our nicer stays in France.

This hotel is located in the French countryside in a beautiful pastoral setting. It is so quiet and relaxing. The rooms are comfortable and charming. Our bathroom was spacious. My only issue is there isn't a shower, only a bathtub. However, being that it's a 16th (?) century chateau, we dealt with it. The grounds are lovely. We stayed there for 2 nights and would have liked to have stayed longer. It was so peaceful and relaxing. WiFi is very iffy so if you need to stay "in touch", you will be disappointed. We even had issues with connections using their computers. The food was just ok. It is the atmosphere and location that is fabulous.

Room Tip: I would suggest asking for a room on the back side of the chateau
