I believe the owners of Chateau Essard run this bed and breakfast not for the money. This beautiful chateau which they bought 2 years ago must have caused then a fortune to refurbish and maintain at her current state. Laurence is the gracious hostess who responded to my emails quickly, giving us good suggestions on winery and castles to visit, provided excellent level of service, always anticipating our needs, and a really good cook. Dinner was served with champagne and aperitif in the garden first, along with the other guests, followed by in room dining. We had superb 3 course meal, in addition to dessert and tea, all were well prepared. The chateau has an inviting swimming pool and a huge forest in the back where we saw deers running when we took a stroll in the morning. By the way, I only speak English, and Laurence speaks English very well that there weren't any problems in communication. My wife, 6 y/o daughter and I stayed for only one night which I regretted so much that we should at least stay for 3. I highly recommend this place!
