We stayed at the Chateau des Reynats for two nights during a tour of France recently. When you drive in to the grounds its very impressive with plenty of parking and attractive surroundings. However, we were staying in the Orangerie (the chateau's annex building within the grounds) and the double room we were given was a little small, stuffy (no air-con) and had a very poor view of the neighbouring building.
The staff were a little on the snotty side and we had problems on our second night when they were holding a wedding party in the chateau and had erected a make-shift dancefloor within the annex building. We were kept awake untill well after 2am with singing, shouting and loud banging French music, not to mention the dj schreeching in efforts to whip up the crowd every two minutes! This was infuriating and after our complaints the following morning, the fee for our second nights stay was waved.
All in all, we would probably not return to Chateau des Reynats. But if we did i would definately make sure we were booked to stay in the actual Chateau rooms and not the Orangerie this time and that there were no weddings booked during our stay!
Also worth a mention, the pool was refreshing as it was very hot whilst we were there, however, it could have done with a clean.... it was absolutely full of dead flies and wasps!
