    Chateau a bit run down, furnishings kind of random, hodgepodge, staff seemed disorganised, room small and hot, poorly furnished, breakfast pretty poor for the price.

    Pretty, old chateau on nice grounds in nice location.

    Rien.

    The welcome was warm, and lthe comfort and charm were exceptional! !The food was delicious, and we were delighted with the 2 dinners we had there, which were prepared especially for us! The hosts were extremely kind and helpful, giving us personal attention and advice on local attractions!!

    I had just driven for 10 hours and arrived at 8pm on a Saturday to be told that they had given the cook the night off, so no restaurant. I could drive (as if I wanted to) to the nearest village for dinner if a wished. Room musty, bed small double (I had booked Superior Double), room small, no floor space once bags in, shower impossibly small. No bottled water, etc in room.

    In a lovely spot, way off beaten track and very quiet.

    The staff were not helpful when we complained about the small size of the rooms compared to the photos on the website! The beds were hard and the rooms were expensive for what you got!!!

    Good breakfast.

    Uncomfortable room. We were put in the attick, with a slanting roof. The water pipes of the building ran through our room so we heard the noise. Small bed, one old beat up wool blanket, no other blanket in room so we were cold. Lots of steps to schlepp suitcase. Atmosphere cold and not particularly welcoming. This definitely is not worth €125.

    The building looks really beautiful.

    Not enough staff. Completely soulless. Unwelcoming and uncomfortable.

    Magnificent building, full of antique furniture. Like staying in someone's ancestral home.

    This is a wonderful old Chateau B&B, a real jewel with a lovely setting and an evening bar for a nightcap

    Le prix est trop élevé par rapport aux prestations (au confort des chambres essentiellement)

    Bel endroit, bon accueil, bon petit déjeuner

    It was very beautiful. To stay over night in such a chateau is very special! A very kind owner. I would stay there again.
