We arrived at the chateau to a very unfriendly" we don't usually let guests in until 3 pm but you can come in". We had only arrived early as it was cold and very wet. The owner came to the gate to let us in and another couple arrived who got his attention and he disappeared with them. We were left wondering, in the rain where we should go. He reappeared 5 minutes later saying there was no room in the keep so we had been upgraded to the chateau. It is a very imposing building. We were taken inside and after going around corridors and up flights of stairs we arrived in the blue room. The building was freezing cold but the room was warm. It was very attractive but rather shabby. We were given the locking up time and asked what time we wanted breakfast and then left. We appeared to be the only guests in this huge creepy building. We went out and on our return we found walking through the chateau very creepy. We got to our room and discovered it had loads of bugs walking and flying around. They bothered us all night. The bed was the most uncomfortable one I have ever slept, or actually not slept in as sleep was impossible with the bugs. There were no keys for the door and so we had to put a chair against it for security. At breakfast next morning I mentioned the bugs and were told that always happens when the heating is first put on. It only lasts a few days but they will come and clear them. Breakfast was poor, in a country famous for cheese to give guests only baby bell for the cheese is a bit poor. The hot chocolate had no flavour, not nice. When we returned in the evening the bugs were still there. Sophie did come twice to Hoover them up but more just came. I don't think that rooms should be let if infested with bugs. We found out from other guests that there was a lounge in the keep with tv and was lovely and warm, we were not told of this. I think comfort should not be compromised, the rooms although authentic should have comfortable beds and no bugs. I was very disappointed with this chateau. Others might like the authentic going back in time experience but it is not for me.
