  Thank you for your compliments on the great rooms and items to view even if our antique doors have no locks as you noticed.

We feel sincerely sorry that you felt unwelcome in our home. Perhaps what you relate happened at a particularly stressful moment for us, nobody is perfect and we apologize!

We are sincerely happy to meet our guests who come from all over the world and who are interested to experience the life in an authentic family chateau. Often the highlight of their stay seems to be the Dinner Grand Siècle, -which we host twice a week with the antique porcelain and crystal glasses, the family silver, the embroidered linens, - is a moment during which we enjoy sharing our culture, our way of life in the traditions of the French aristocracy, following an exclusive tour of the Chateau by Count de Vanssay.

We understand that this particular evening could be different from the dinner you expected, and too many explanations could be felt as “with forced charm” and “pretentiousness” to you.

However we do try to inform our guests about the programme of these elegant evenings that are usually appreciated all as many tripadvisor reports show.

Thank you for informing us about this question of currency proposed to guests, which is something nobody has ever mentioned before and can easily be arranged, as we have no problem taking British pounds. We will think about it and enquire further.

We do hope that you will receive these apologies and explanations graciously and it will be a pleasure for us to welcome you again at Chateau de la Barre.
