Our room was spacious and modern and our breakfasts were delicious. We were made very welcome by our hosts, Benoit and his wife who were very helpful with areas to visit and restaurants to...

Just minutes away from the highway you are in totally different world of ancient buildings & gardens, sympathetic people & service and excellent resting place for a night or longer if you wish. It is a gated community of old, beautifully restored buildings with a river running thru it. My room was nicely decorated, clean and spacious enough. Bed was...

This is lovely gem not far outside Lyon. The owner clearly has a passion for both the property and her guests' comfort. Every detail is done to perfection, without being pretentious or intimidating. The breakfast was fabulous and we loved the homemade yogurt. So sorry we didn't plan to stay longer.

We stayed at the Chateau de Tanay for two nights. The rooms are lovely, modern and well equipped. The hosts are very welcoming and accommodating.

We stayed for just one night to break our journey down to the South of France. After a long drive this was such a welcome oasis! It truly is a stunning property.
