Guestbook comments from the manager
After an incredible stay at this most magical Chateau I can honestly say that myself and all my friends had the best weekend ever. The grounds were enticing and the Chateau was as grand as it was magnificent.
With so many original features and secret passage ways we were invited into a weekend of fantasy and adventure. Our lovely chef Corrine cooked us up a feast and our hostess with the mostess Tiphaine ensured we has everything we could possibly need at our disposal. I believe the local bistro became part of the birthday celebrations too and it's proprietor was helpful and accmodating. A return visit will be planned and I recommend the Chateau to everyone.....families, couples, weddings and all. Thank you for a great 40th birthday x
