A beautiful chateau in a peaceful, rural location with artistic follies around every corner. The rooms are well appointed with every amenity , and the spa/ swimming pool, is exceptional. Food was also delicious, and lived up to the reputation of this establishment, but when we visited, we were sad to see so many flies in the restaurant. They were on the butter and bread in the morning, the tables , bread., and especially the cheese in the evenings. I only mention this as we know it is possible to deter the flies, as many other similar establishments manage to do so. Hopefully this will be rectified and this hotel will be highly recommended. I may be fussy about flies on food, but it upsets me, and there may be other fussy folk out there.

Thank you for your comment. In fact, during the harvest we have a lot of flies and it is very difficult to deter the flies.
We apologize for the inconvenience and we hope to see you again another time.

Lovely and beautiful building but sadly spoilt with dodgy decor, plastic sculptures and measly breakfast. Overpriced for the quality of service or offering. Dinner was good but expensive, as was the wine. Trying to be something by hiking the prices rather than increasing the quality.

We stayed at this wonderful Château at the start and end of our European road trip. It’s an absolutely beautiful setting where you can’t help but relax. Both rooms we stayed in were large and very comfortable and the pool area is a nice feature.
The breakfast has a large selection.
Room service was great but took a long time to arrive (well over an hour).
The only thing that could be improved would be the service. When we arrived we were told our room was not ready (this was fine as we were early). After an hour I went to find out what was going on, only to be greeted by shrugged shoulders and complete disinterest, which was a shame as everything else was perfect.
I loved the statutes and figurines all around the Château!

We spent a night here on our way to Champagne and had a fantastic experience.

The Chateau has been carefully restored and has thoughtful design elements throughout. Set in a peaceful and tranquil environment, it is the perfect place to relax.

We arrived in the afternoon and were served so cordially by Jerome, a credit to the hotel. He set us up with a lovely bottle of rosé champagne and a delightful cheese selection even though the kitchen was closed.

Our dinner in the hotel restaurant was wonderful and again the service was brilliant.. despite there being two large corporate groups staying at the same time.

Really this is a 4 star hotel with 5 star service.

My only negative would be the continental breakfast, which is served buffet style and I was put off by ham and cheese left out with several flies around them so I felt I could not eat it.

Aside from that minor issue, I cannot recommend this hotel enough and will definitely return because the service is amazing fo4 the price you pay.

Every time we visit Barive it seems to get better. Dinner was a pleasure with lots of choice, the Crepes Suzette are not to be missed. Breakfast has improved and the grounds were just beginning to show their spring time blooms. Well worth a visit
