I now know better when using Trip Advisor to look at the reviews to find where the folks come from writing the reviews. When traveling to out of the way places in this part of France I find that most of the reviews are English or European travelers who have totally different expectations from those of us from the United States. For instance nobody noted that this is not an air-conditioned hotel and we had arrived during a very hot period in late May. We could open the windows and we were comfortable but needed to keep the lights off to keep bug free. We did not find this to be a problem and we quite enjoyed our stay but many of our friends would have been unhappy. The lack of air-conditioning and different electrical connections and other minor things may spoil you trip and if these things disturb you look further into the reviews to find other reviews provided by members from the United States.
We got here by driving our car onboard a train near Dover England. It was very easy and it only takes about 30 minutes from loading your car to driving off the train in France. You stay in the car during the trip under the channel and you drive on and off the train with minimum direction. We went through a checkpoint that had a sign to have your passport ready but they waved us through without checking us. Once in France we programmed our destination into a Tom –Tom GPS that we had with us and it gave us English turn-by-turn directions to the hotel. (This is now a must for our Europe adventures) When we checked into the hotel we were taken to a fairly new building next to the hotel (same property) and we were shown our rooms to make sure they were satisfactory which they were.
The rooms were very comfortable, beds were comfortable plenty of room for luggage and hanging clothes, great toilet and bath facility and we were very comfortable more so after the sun went down and we got a nice breeze through the room. We walked into the little village near the Chateau for lunch but ate dinner and breakfast at the Chateau. The meals at the Chateau were high quality meals and are a must do when staying here. Ask for the English menus if you do not speak French.
We highly recommend this Chateau and it was a real treat for us even though it was a little warmer than we liked. Warm room conditions are not avoidable unless you avoid historic properties such as this in summer conditions or go into the big city hotels where business hotels are located.
