Me and my wife were extremely surprised with this charming place. Everything is excelent, starting with the couple in charge of the hotel, they are always doing anything to make your stay perfect. The environment is relaxing and the food is incredible. We need to return and repeat our experience there.

We were fortunate to practically have the whole castle to ourselves. We had the turret room and it was like stepping back in time. The staff (a charming couple) were wonderful and made us feel right at home. The rooms were clean and he food was great. We even got a personal tour of the whole chateau! This definitely was...

My wife and I found this Chateau after much research in planning our route from Paris to the Mediterranean. What an absolutely pleasant experience! The friendly couple who operate the business are Lieven and Carine. They are exceptionally pleasant, multi-lingual, and professional in all respects. Their son Jochen is very friendly and does a wonderful job maintaining the vast grounds...

Peaceful location and comfortable reception room with open fire, felt like home. The meal was excellent, but one must be prepared to sit at a long table with the other guests, which in our case was a problem because it was a group of six who only spoke French.

Fabulous hosts who made us very welcome in this very comfortable, charming and homely castle. We had booked a fixed menu evening meal they offer but we had to call ahead to say we were so delayed we would miss it. They went out of they way and still produced the meal of exceptional quality and value including local aperitifs...

A chance to have a journey back in time by staying in the incredible Chateau de la Motte. Room was interesting with a very large stone fireplace and well equipped. We had lovely views over the countryside. We had to duck through the low stone doorway into the bathroom, part of the adventure into the past! The owners have done...

Stayed one night at this 15th century chateau. We had a delightfully comfortable room, high ceilings, beams and a large fireplace (not working). The bed was also very comfortable. Thoughtfully, our hosts had left out water and wine. We had a separate bathroom and WC so the whole room felt more like a medieval suite!! When we arrived our hosts...

La Motte is an imposing castle which stands proudly as you drive through the village of Usseau. Our hosts are Belgian and speak excellent English and really looked after us with a huge breakfast and use of all the facilities. We chose not to use the pool (too busy doing other things) but the grounds and vegetable garden are interesting...

Stayed 1 night en-route from Spain to the UK. What a fantastic place to stay. Beautiful restored old castle, with lovely gardens. Had a wonderful nights sleep (didn't see the ghost) and a great breakfast in the morning. The hosts were charming, nothing was too much trouble for them, and the tour of the tower and the historical background information...

This wonderful old castle is visible off the A10 and is very imposing as you drive up to it. The castle has such history that one can't help but be impressed by it. We loved exploring the castle and grounds. The kids used the pool which is obviously not modern, but it was clean and safe. The gardens are well...
