My husband surprised me with a trip to France for my Birthday (love that man), and we took the high speed train from Paris to Avigon, then rented a car and drove to this lovely castle. We arrived at night and were able to find it after a few u-turns. We immediately were checked in and shown to our room, then sat for dinner on the first floor. We both agreed the dinner here was the best meal we ate while in France: I had a delicious mushroom starter and lamb main with my husband indulging in a salad starter (he says the best salad he's ever had, mind you) and fish over risotto main course. We woke the next morning and I couldn't wait to get a glimpse of the vineyard outside...we had 2 large windows overlooking the vines. I could have sat there forever just staring out of our room windows. Breakfast was not included and was average at best. I recommend staying here for the uniqueness of staying in a castle, the stunning view, and for the dinner!!
