Stayed one night at this 15th century chateau. We had a delightfully comfortable room, high ceilings, beams and a large fireplace (not working). The bed was also very comfortable. Thoughtfully, our hosts had left out water and wine. We had a separate bathroom and WC so the whole room felt more like a medieval suite!! When we arrived our hosts... More

La Motte is an imposing castle which stands proudly as you drive through the village of Usseau. Our hosts are Belgian and speak excellent English and really looked after us with a huge breakfast and use of all the facilities. We chose not to use the pool (too busy doing other things) but the grounds and vegetable garden are interesting... More

Stayed 1 night en-route from Spain to the UK. What a fantastic place to stay. Beautiful restored old castle, with lovely gardens. Had a wonderful nights sleep (didn't see the ghost) and a great breakfast in the morning. The hosts were charming, nothing was too much trouble for them, and the tour of the tower and the historical background information... More

This wonderful old castle is visible off the A10 and is very imposing as you drive up to it. The castle has such history that one can't help but be impressed by it. We loved exploring the castle and grounds. The kids used the pool which is obviously not modern, but it was clean and safe. The gardens are well... More

If you've ever wanted to stay in an old, authentic French castle, here's your chance! The rooms are great if you like that original feel. Stone floors, brick walls, older style furniture etc. A fantastic breakfast room, with a massive table to sit at with other guests. There is English spoken here and the manager was keen to show us...

This is a fantastic hotel, full of historical character, where the staff are so friendly and helful. We loved our stay, and will certainlt go back again. If you get the chance, book the Knighrs room, with a fantastic bathroom and superb views. There are a lot of steps in accessing the hotel and rooms.

This is my 2nd stay at the castle. My first with the new owner and caretakers. Levin, Carine, and their family made our visit magical. We brought our 14 & 15 year old for their first visit. From the food, accommodations, and people... We didn't want to leave! Can't wait to visit again.
