This is a superbly restored medieval château which oozes character. We didn't stay so can't comment on the accommodation but ate lunch at the restaurant. Good food if a little salty which seemed to be the case for all options. (hence the four star rating) and superb service. Try the Cotes du Thongues for your main course wine and the chocolate maccaroon for desert.
