A Step Into Another Century
Posted Aug 27, 2016 on Hotels
This was our second stay at the chateau. The service has always been professional and attentive. Our room was fairly ordinary for an ancient chateau in that it felt like most hotel rooms in France, but I guess that's to be expected when modern bathrooms, tvs, etc. need to be installed in old buildings. The dining room is airy and open to the lovely gardens. Our meal was very good but not excellent. There is a swimming pool located across the park from the hotel but we din't use it since even though it was August the thermometer said 11° (52° fahrenheit). The public rooms give the appearance of still being from another century with gorgeous antique furniture, statues and musical instruments. There are wonderful panels in each room explaining the history including the use of one room for papal judiciary conferences. We also had a very good breakfast with croissants, breads, jams, several cheeses, sliced ham and proscuitto, fromage fräiche, yogurt, fruit cocktail and various fresh squeezed juices in addition to coffee and various teas.
