10/10 Exceptional

We had an amazing experience staying in the amazing Chateau de Varambon. Countess Boissieu and host Thibaud were very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and spacious, the breakfast was authentic and delicious. The chateau and its surroundings are breathtakingly beautiful.

6/10 Good

The history of the property was quite interesting and Count Boissieu did a wonderful job explaining the significance of the family castle. It was a lovely place to stay. However, we were a bit taken aback on our second night there when we returned at 11pm (after a full day of sight seeing) to find Countess Boissieu at the door sort of scolding us for having returned so late. She said something to the effect “you are arriving too late. This is not a hotel, this is a guesthouse.” This was totally confusing to us as the Count had told us the night before about how to get in when returning late. We liked the Château and the atmosphere, but my wife was so upset with the Countess’ comment that we would not feel comfortable recommending this place to our friends. By the way, their own guest guidelines mention nothing about a curfew ☹️
