We stayed on our way back from Italy and France so only one night but would like to return. It's only an hour south of Paris and simply charming. We met the Count but not the Countess, he speaks good English, better than our French anyway. The chateau is stunning, beautifully lit outside (he used to be a lighting designer and it shows).
Our hearts sank when we saw there was a function on the night we were there but it did not impact upon us at all. We ate in the restaurant in stable block where again our hearts sank when we were the ony guests on a Thursday evening but we need not have worried not only was the food superb, we did not suffer at all as one can when the kitchen is focussed on a function (it was the same kitchen I checked). The head waiter is married to an English woman and speaks perfect English, he was charming and chatty without ever being a pest. The whole experience was delightful and breakfast the next day had a better than average array of continental breakfast choices including good proscuitto. Our room under the eaves, clearly in the servants old quarters was charming and cosy though the corridor was a bit grotty though this is minor. I suspect the best rooms are on the lower floor and we shall certainly explore this option when we return which we would like to do as part of a Paris weekend, it would be the ideal contrast. Lovely dog too!
