We spent three nights there and wished it could have been more. A beautifully renovated 11th century chateau with exceptionally comfortable rooms and a great central lounge for relaxing with a glass of wine or three. Luc and Florence are the perfect hosts, always going out of their way to make guests feel welcome and they took the time to give us excellent recommendations for villages to visit and very good places to eat. Breakfasts were well beyond expectations and the Assiete du Chateau dinner is very much worth trying on at least one night.
We haven't stayed in a better guesthouse and plan to return next time we go to France.
