We have chosen this chateau hotel based on price and reviews on Tripadvisor. It is a little far from any important places, but that aspect did not bother us. We stayed there for 2 nights. The Prestige Room we had was very large and stylish. I wish I had a four poster bed room, but when I asked about it at the reception, I was told that they only have one and it is taken (room no. 104). Well, that did not bother me either, we had a wonderful room.
We liked everything about this hotel, except for the food in their elegant restaurant. We are not big fans of sophisticated French cuisine, but we were willing to try anyway. We ordered both the same thing, which was fillet minion with macaroni gratin topped with spinach. Well, we got a little (but tasty) fillet (less than 3 inches in diameter) and 3 (three!) macaroni topped with a steamed spinach leaf. I thought it was ridiculous. These two portions plus 2 cocktails and 2 glasses of wine equaled 75 Euro (about $110). The good thing is that they gave us enough bread and we did not have to leave the restaurant still being hungry.
Overall, we had a beautiful experience. For those who want to stay at a chateau, it is a catch and a good value for the money (155 Euro/night). I am not sure that it could actually be called a chateau, because it is just a large sized mansion from the 17th century.
