The setting here is perfect. When we climbed the big staircase to our room, which is probably equivalent to 4 stories, I couldn't have been happier. We opened the windows and just reveled in the gorgeous French countryside. Then the neighbors arrived. This chateau was built in the 1400's. You would think that the walls between the rooms were thick but they seemed to be made of paper. We could hear every word our neighbors uttered. Fortunately for them they were not speaking English. We could also hear them in the bathroom. My husband and I whispered the whole time.
I think it's also worth noting that there is no shower. There's a bathtub with a handheld wand but if you are not used to using a tub or older, this is difficult. If you try to stand up you will likely spray water everywhere. Ladies it's also difficult for hairwashing unless you're used to this system.
I feel bad saying any of this because the owners are absolutely lovely. The breakfasts each morning were wonderful. We loved the wines and touring around the area through the countryside to the different wineries. I think there are only two rooms though and you should beware that there's not much privacy if someone is in the next room.
If you are visiting, don't miss the beautiful village of Cordes du Ciel.More
