    Historically pleasing and well maintained. The pictures of the pool somewhat misrepresent the size of the pool, and the breakfast is well over priced, but regardless our stay was enjoyable.

    Très bel hôtel

    Très bel hôtel dans un beau château. Chambre confortable (très bon lit). Personnel très professionnel et très aimable. Petit-déjeuner buffet de grande qualité avec en particulier des gâteaux très moelleux.

    Fantastica esperienza

    Dormire in un vero castello è sempre un'esperienza magica. Questo hotel ve lo permette a prezzi davvero ottimi. Il castello è in ottime condizioni, ben curato e con un parcheggio sicuro spazioso davanti alla struttura. Ha piscina e campi da tennis, nonché lettini per prendere il sole. Ma è il cortile del castello, col suo bar e il suo ristorante che vi faranno entire in un posto davvero fuori dagli schemi e particolarmente romantico. Le stanze sono piccole, magari potrebbero essere rese più "medioevali", ma sono pur sempre stanze in un castello, raggiungibili attraverso scale nelle torri e corridoi con tappeti e finestrelle suggestive. Ultima nota: il ristorante è ottimo, super romantico e di qualità, ma mettete in conto di spendere circa 100 euro a testa
