10/10 Exceptional

Great experience, amazing property
Our stay was great, the owners of the château were really friendly and we got to stay in a very large room in a medieval tower, situated on a magnificent property. There were no wifi or TV in the room, but there was a large supply of books and magazines instead. It was actually very refreshing and didn't feel like it was lacking due to the medieval atmosphere.

2/10 Poor

Over priced, disppointing & not worth the money
We were travelling around France & stayed & viewed a variety of Chateaux & experienced a mix of quality & hospitality. We expected a standard room in the chateau itself- we were given a room in the keep ie the square outside in the grounds by the main gates. There was nothing on the booking to indicate this.The room was at the top 60 steps - there should be a notification for less abled individuals. The room was beyond basic, one would accept rustic however the sofa was stained & thread bare. the bathroom vanity unit was black & water stained. Paint peeling in several places in the shower. Cobwebs needed dusting away. Pillows smelt strongly of cigar smoke & disappointing for a non smoking room. Very dusty & felt dirty. Breakfast was not included in the price and we didn't feel comfortable to stay & left. In the brief for the Chateau it advertised close to local restaurants which in essence is true however there is one hotel restaurant of dubious quality & the pizza restaurant which was shut. The owner tried to confront us upon our departure as he clearly sensed we were not happy but it was rather a confrontational approach and not a conversation we felt would be constructive. The most expensive & most disappointing chateau experience on this trip

Our stay at the Chateau
Stayed 1 night in the yellow room of the keep. Purpose of the visit was to visit friends who own a house in the village saint loup Upon arrival was eventually greeted by Madam Sophie stating “yes, I know you’re here. It is a big place “. We were shown to our room and offered a postcard of the Chateau for our information. We asked if our Friends could be shown around and she insisted “only the grounds and not inside “. I was disappointed to find bathroom products to be of low budget quality. Towels inadequate (small bath towel) grey and over used. The experience should have been more informative and a personal touch for their Guests. However the property is magnificent and the grounds albeit a little neglected are also magnificent

Unforgettable historical experience
A rare 17th century château with medeval donjon, exceptional surroundings, historically decorated rooms with original pieces, comfortable bed, exceptional breakfast, and lovely hosts that are willing to go out of their way to explain the castle’s history and renovations. Excellent cost-for-value and once in a life time experience. Warmly recommended.

Beautiful chateau in a great setting
This was our return visit to the chateau where we got married 9 years ago. The place has changed very little, and all the better for it. Staying here is a unique experience. It is a spectacular building (or buildings, if one includes the keep, orangery, dovecote, pavilion and other outbuildings) in a beautiful setting. Do not expect it to be polished - large parts are yet to be renovated - but this simply adds to its charm. Charles-Henri and Sophie are great hosts. And the village itself is beautiful.

so much potential...
We enjoyed our stay for two nights in the keep - a large room, tastefully furnished (apart from the prayer mat used as a rug). Sophie was an excellent and very attentive host. Breakfast was a little lacking in content and quality for the price but at least the orange juice was freshly squeezed (grown within the grounds). We asked if we could have a bottle of wine to drink in the garden, Sophie obliged and brought three glasses and helped herself. We were a little put out when her husband tried to charge us 60 Euros for the wine as we left!

A Unique Experience
A unique experience, in a classically beautiful Chateau. Not an every day experience and totally worth staying.

Unique establishment that we adored
This is a wonderful place to stay. It's not some gated community hotel manned by robotic staff. The owners are a husband and wife team, who have brought the chateau and the castle back to life by devoting 25 years of loving care and attention to these properties. The village next to the chateau has restaurants and shops all within walking distance. The picturesque grounds are bordered by a river and the owners have developed a marvellous walled garden. We will definitely be going back to stay there again in the near future.
