Recently, my husband & I stayed at the charming French Chateau,
Manoir Le Roure & Spa located in the Rhone Valley. Our purpose was to enjoy selected wineries in the valley, as well as enjoy the food & culture of the region. The Chateau & "Orangerie" have been totally restored & divided into a combination of rooms & suites for guests.
It is ecclectic, but thoroughly charming. The owners have chosen the mid/late1800's for much of the restoration . . as well as updating each room & suite with baths, climate control & high speed internet & TV. Of particular note to us were the lovely bed & bath linens used at the Chateau as well as beds that provided us with the best sleep of our trip. Please go to the web-site for "Manoir Le Roure & Spa" for specific room & general property information. (We stayed in the Mireille at the top of the stairs, a good location for access downstairs) We found the web-site to be accurate in every way & have included a few of our own photos for confirmation. Madame & Monsier (Chef) are gracious hosts providing excellent information & suggestions for the area. We ate both evening meals at the Chateau. The first evening, was somewhat disappointing as the Chateau was hosting a cocktail party for 80 guests in the Orangerie. However, the next evening, the chef was at his best, and we had his full attention. He is open to doing things off the menu, and did a wonderful job, providing us with entertaining commentary, as well as culinary information about the specific Montelimar area. As we were the only guests at the Chateau, this meal was charming, and indeed, romantic in the lovely, candle-lit, totally French dining room. Although, we would not give the
restaurant the 4 stars acclaimed on the web-site, we would deem the
service & food "good" . . .and would suggest that everyone try the restaurant once & make their own determination as tastes & experience differ widely. Also, not knowing what restaurants are avaialbe in the region, this would be a good first night suggestion until you can get your feet on the ground for another culinary destination. Over-all, we would highly recommend a stay at the chateau.
Although our purpose was not to enjoy the Spa, we would think that
it would be worhtwhile for those looking for such a destination. We understand that newly updated facilities are in progress for 2011 & will be available when the Chateau re-opens in early Spring.
