The chateau doesn't offer an evening meal, so it did mean we had to eat somewhere else and then drive back. There was no television (or music) in the room, and no other room available other than our bedroom, so in the evening we read our books and watched the sun go down out of our grand window in silence!
Our initial welcome lacked warmth, and we wondered if we had made a mistake, but it all went well in the end.
We would have loved to have learnt more about the history of the chateau, and the stories behind the lovely pictures on the staircase walls.
We loved the peace and tranquility of the chateau. Historic pictures of past generations hung on the walls of the sweeping staircase. The rooms were large and impressive, with magnificent high ceilings and original tall windows, and beautiful old French furniture. The bed was large and fabulously comfortable.
The bathroom was of a by-gone era, large and impressive, beautiful (and in full working order!) It was lovely to have a bath, rather than just a shower.
The breakfast in the huge kitchen downstairs was wonderful, with home-made jam (the cupboard was full of it!) and eggs from their own chickens.
