The castle has just 8 chambers to offer, it is a kind of top class B&B, really worth a few days stay. First of all the welcome is excellent, much warmer and friendly than an icy cold five star hotel, the location is wonderful, outstanding view on the Serre Poncon lake and chambers are kept in a 19th century style...

The restored chateau is the ideal place to unwind and do nothing. There is no tv here. This is the place to take book, sit in the garden and read. The chateau offers B&B accommodation with large rooms. The rooms are decorated in a range of classical styles. Wifi is free and works in the rooms. Breakfast is a simple... More

Our family enjoyed a night's stay at this chateau - warmly welcomed and every need graciously met. Such a beautifully restored historic gem in a spectacular setting. A magical experience. A delicious breakfast greeted us upon awakening. Our son and his cycling buddy found this a perfect overnight between days climbing the Haut Alps famous climbs.

My wife and I stayed in this marvelous castle only for one night. But it was our best night during our three weeks tour in France. The hosts, the wife is from Boston and the husband French, we're very gracious and hospitable. We slept in one of the tower with a side study overlooking the gardens. Absolutely fantastic.

On a motorcycle tour with Adriatic Moto Tours, we stayed at Picomtal. The place is amazing, with a history that stretches back centuries. The Peureux family have done a wonderful job of restoration, (ask to see the short film showing the process, or look it up on their website), both of the building and the surrounding grounds. The rooms are... More
