Stayed here for three nights due to its convenient location for a wedding at Bellevue, Birac. Initial correspondence by email was very helpful and aside from deciding on how to send a deposit (30% requested, we sent euros by normal post) the process of booking was very straightforward. The remainder of the bill was settled in cash during the stay.
Directions were provided on the booking email and the accommodation was easy to find although be aware that the GPS coordinates on the French website are correct, ignore the ones provided on the English version. If you look up the hotel name on Google maps it gives a reliable location.
On arrival we were met by the lady of the house who was very helpful and spoke a good standard of English. We stayed in the main house on the top floor but there are other more accessible rooms off the main courtyard. The accommodation was basic (bed, en suite shower/toilet/basin, fan, AC unit and hanging space - don't expect a UK B&B standard of facilities) but this needs to be considered in context with the price we paid; 68€ per night for a triple room which was excellent value. Breakfast consisted of bread and brioche, butter and jam with tea/coffee and orange juice and was served between 0830-0930. Again, not a full English but generous in quantity.
Nearby facilities in Chateauneuf include a new Super U supermarket with 24/7 fuel and a really great riverside beach on the East side of town near the fire station.
