      What more to say. I went with my with for five nights in late July and we loved it. Each day was better than the previous. While its location can be a bit challenging for some of the day trips we took, the room, grounds, and most importantly the hosts made it an incredibly special and unique trip.

    Guy and Marnie, the proprietors and hosts, make this a very special experience. Marnie in particular made each day special, helping us plan our itinerary, booking restaurants, wine tastings, and outings and quickly learning what worked for us. Marnie booked an amazing hot air balloon ride, and we departed from the front lawn of the chateau.

    Additionally, the other guests were all interesting and engaging. The other guests were all Europeans and indulged us by only speaking english. Each morning, the lovely breakfast with just a few other guests around a single table made for an environment that encouraged conversations and engagement.

    The room was beautiful and the chateau was amazing. While the plumbing is a little noisy, everything worked well and we had no problems or issues.

    Truly a special experience.
