My husband and I stayed here on the first night of an anniversary trip to the Languedoc. The hotel is very impressive on first sight and the owners, Marie and her husband John, were very welcoming. Marie told us a little of the history of the chateau, and that she and her husband have restored it over several years. The love and care they have put into it is evident wherever you look, and despite the age of the house, everything is fresh and new. The bedrooms are just as spectacular as they seem on the website and the bathrooms are among the most luxurious I've ever found in a hotel (and as my husband travels a lot we have stayed in some of the best).
The pool area is quiet and secluded and although there is some road noise it is certainly not intrusive. Here too attention is paid to small but important details: sun beds are made up with soft towelling covers, and towels and robes are offered.
Breakfast was delicious and served in the orangery, beautifully laid out on on french antique plates. Serrano ham and goats cheese with honey, fresh fruit salad, the best and most authentic croissants we had on our trip, french bread and a lovely selection of home made conserves. It was evident from the quality and selection of the food and the setting how much Marie cares about her guests.
She was also very helpful in recommending a choice of good local restaurants and in going out of her way to help us with other aspects of our trip.
This is a beautiful chateau, restored with great love and care, with a high level of 21st century comfort and luxury. If, like me you love the English version of French interior design, you will absolutely love this place. If you love quality, great service and a warm welcome, you will love this place.
