We stayed at the Chateau for one night on our way to our main holiday destination. What a find! We were warmly welcomed by Thierry and Yolande (and Uno their dog!), and then shown to our rooms. The rooms are stunning - beautifully decorated, although the minibar and the TV look a little out of place in such a period property.
We'd asked for a recommendation for dinner that night and we were not disappointed. L'Alchemiste is a short walk away, and although from the outside looks unassuming, with a rather short menu, the food was devine and not overly priced.
We retired to the Chateau after dinner, where Thierry served us an excellent local wine, and Yolande proudly showed us the photographs of her daughter's wedding!
Breakfast was relaxed, and Uno visited each table in turn (no doubt wanting to sample the excellent croissants!).
We wanted to visit Saumur that morning, and Thierry and Yolande happily let us leave the car at the Chateau until we had been shopping - its the little things like this that really make a difference.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone, and hope to return again soon.
