Chateau Le Mas de Montet

Reviewed 26 April 2014

This chateau hotel lived up to its promise and delivered a bit more. The staff were top notch, smart but not stuffy, obliging but not overfriendly, there when you needed them but not in your face. If there was 6 stars for service, they would have received it. Equally the restaurant deserved a special mention - we ate there each night and once during the day in our three day stay. Each meal was delicious and on the last night the chef cook us a special main dish which was not on the menu. Really, don't both going elsewhere if you are staying here. They've also got a good wine menu. The chateau itself was charming - not just to look at (beautiful, beautiful, beautiful) but inside as well. There were a three places inside where we relaxed when we were not soaking up the sun on the gravel terrace outside, using the swing hanging from a great tree in the grounds or borrowing the hotel's cycles for a ride around the impeccable estate and beyond. The surrounding countryside is charming. The room was a little disappointing (see our room tip) but in the greater context this mattered very little (I surprise myself even by saying this - but it is true). You could while away days here.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to a junior suite - Room 203. The plus side was that the room was big, we had a hu...

We have visited the Chateau for about 12 years now and had some interesting experiences over the years, but always had good food, but sometimes mediocre service.. However today we have just returned from their amazing Sunday lunch, where we had the 22 Euro menu. The choice was limited- two starters, two mains and two deserts to choose from, but all beautifully served and to the usual high standard. The service was excellent and the ambiance stunning. We have a home locally so cannot justify staying, but would certainly return to eat again.

Wonderful chateau, highly recommended - my sister came here for her wedding reception and everything was perfect : the food, the service, the place ! The bedrooms and bathrooms are gorgeous, the park is beautiful, and we were made to feel so welcome.

Stayed for a Week-end in the Mitterrand suite ( Francois Mitterrand apparently stayed here for his holidays ) , A superb suite , with four poster bed , with views over the pool and gardens . The food was very good and staff very pleasant , excellent wine but a little expensive . Excellent for a romantic week-end .

Room Tip: The Mitterrand suite is the one !

Didn't stay here but had dinner here. €32 for 4 courses plus appetiser and pre-dessert. Good quality ingredients as well - fois gras and rose veal. Chateau is in immaculate condition and when we ate here all the diners were French. A rarity in this part of France. Only negatives were wine was a tad expensive and main course was lukewarm but everything well cooked. Recommend

A friend picked this Hotel for her partners 50th birthday celebration. We just turned up with the team at the appointed hour. The Hotel is absolutely picture postcard. Our weekend was wet cool and overcast so the brief vist to the delightful pool was a chastening experience ! Restaurant is quite lovely and for a special event its hard to see how a better spot could have been chosen.
Its a bit of a yomp from the airport but well worth it. We had two great nights and two great meals. The kitchen vegetable garden provides fabulous fresh fruit and veg

Mas De Montet is in a wonderful location, and as you drive down the tree lined drive expectations are high. Last time the expectations were exceeded, this time, a disappointment.
How half a dozen small prawns in a glutinous sauce can be described/justified as a King prawn entree in their 47 euro menu puzzles me greatly. The rest of the meal was so-so at best, and presentation lacked any style or panache.
Suggest that they provide cushions for the metal chairs in the garden too, as 2 1/2 hours without cushions tested our resilience!
My apologies for not making my thoughts known to the restaurant staff at the time, I usually do,
Just wanted to go home and rest my aching back!!
