Staying in a Relais & Chateau should guarantee some minimum quality standards which were not meet here, even if the Chateau is indeed beautifull.
On our arrival at 3 pm it was impossible to be served any food, apart from some very low quality salads charged at 26 euros each, and some Magnum ice creams...which is shocking in a place where they over market their 'gastronomic restaurant'...the total low quality lunch ended to be over 100 euros. I don't mind paying but gosh I hate tourists traps.
Then the staff was obsviously hired just for the summer and not from the region, so we could not have any decent advises on restaurants, touristic villages etc....
The room was ok, nothing fancy but clean. However the bathroom looked like my grandmother's where they only provided mixed shampoo/bath gel in a bottle attached on the wall.
Finally the swimming pool is behind the park and not that nice as there is no possibility of having anything served and even towels distributed once you have reached the spot. Just disappointing....Next time I will try a chambre d'hote where the charm and quality will be there and that will be much cheaper than the 850 euros for two nights I got charged at Rochegude.
