First of all, please don't pay much attention to reviews before 2010. The property changed ownership a year ago and those reviews(2010-2011) reflect much better the experience you may have at the Chateau. We stayed at the pavilion, a very comfortable 2 story guest house Overlooking the Dorgdone. 2 baths, full kitchen, huge living room, murphy bed downstairs and another bedroom upstairs. The new owners did an excellent job with the property. The sorroundings, the decoration, the village, everything was beautiful. But most important of all is that we felt like special guests, as in friends, not as in tourists. Our kids became friends with Margot and Valentin the owners children, and they wanted to stay playing until late (they were jet lagged) while we could have a delicious dinner or share a glass of good wine and adult conversation with Isabelle and Pascal and the other guests. Their hospitality was so exceptional that leaving was more like parting with friends ( my 3 year old still asks to go back to the castle and see Margot). You don't need to go far to have dinner, Isabelle makes the best coquilles that my husband still remembers as one of the best dishes of our 16 days european roadtrip, and Pascal would bring really good french wines to pair up each course. If you want to go out you may walk to the restaurant 3 blocks from there that they recommended, it's very good gourmet french cuisine. Next time (there will be a next time of course) we will stay longer since there is so much to explore in the area and also the chateau is a great place to slow down for a few days.
Thank you Isabelle and Pascal for your amazing hospitality!
