To keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This lets us know that our reviews come from real guests, like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or quiet room than someone who’s stayed at the property before?
We want you to share your story, both the good and the bad. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinion and experiences, which are critical in helping guests make well-informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, and are treated with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full, as quickly as possible, after being moderated to comply with Booking.com guidelines. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
Once a review has been submitted, you can modify it by contacting Booking.com customer service.
We will use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content as well as the property replies to that content.
We will allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is that of a distributor of feedback from both guest and property.
Guidelines and standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly without limiting expression of strong opinions. They are also applicable regardless of the sentiment of the comment.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include 'hate speech', discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, and the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.
By default, reviews are sorted based on the date of the review and on additional criteria to display the most relevant reviews, including but not limited to: your language, reviews with text, and non-anonymous reviews. Additional sorting options may be available (by type of traveller, by score, etc...).
눇My husband and I rank our stay at Chateau De La Barre as a highlight in our recent 23 day French vacation. We've stayed in Chateaux before and sadly too often these chateaux were in a neglected condition. Chateau De La Barre sparkles by comparison. It's well maintained, has beautifully appointed rooms yet retains the comfy feel of staying in a home. One feels like part of the family when staying there. Our hosts, the Count and Countess de Vanssay are warm engaging people. They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. I appreciated the break from not having to think in French as our hosts speak fluent English and were happy to accommodate us. The grounds are vast and contain a huge garden that is loving tended. The profusion of flowers only adds to the beauty of the property. I appreciated the fresh vase of flowers in our room. An unexpected perk was the The Countess, Marnie, gave us an itinerary for sightseeing that she had mapped out for guests who wished to visit "The Little Loir Valley, Medieval France on the road of St. Jacques of Compostella." This made for a most delightful, day of sightseeing. My husband enjoyed chatting at the end of the day with Count, Guy about wine and visiting The Count's well stocked wine cellar. Chateau De La Barre is not to be missed if you are looking for Relais & Chateaux quality without the stuffiness. Thanks Guy and Marnie for a truly memorable stay.
눉The owners were very rude and made us feel not welcome. They tried to make us drink our very expensive champagne and wine in plastic cups. Eat our food on paper plates and cut our bread with plastic knives. We were a nuisance to them !!! Very very disappointed. And very expensive for a very poor welcome
눇If you'd like a true chateau experience this is the place . It has 12 generations of history dating back to the 14th century. The chandelier in the dining room is older then our country for historical perspective.
눇Yes this place is beautiful, but the real treat is meeting the owners and hosts, both extremely interesting, delightful and entertaining. You will feel like visiting old friends with a very nice home in heart of France. It's a MUST! We only wish we had stayed longer.
