A truly gorgeous experience in Burgundy, the chateau was stunning and our rooms were perfect for our young family of four with our bedroom adjoining our children's room and a lovely family bathroom. The chateau was beautifully decorated with its chic French interior, yet relaxed and informal way of life.
Even though we were in a stunning setting our two young children (4 and 2) did not feel out of place at all as they roamed the grounds freely, playing in the tree house with the owners young children.
We asked in advance for supper to be prepared for the children at 6pm and this was happily prepared at an extra cost. We also dined at the chateau and feasted on the most wonderful homemade dinner created using local seasonal ingredients accompanied by a selection of local wines. Sensational!! Breakfast was a feast for the eyes with fresh local bread, croissants, pain au chocolate, fresh cut fruit, granola, yoghurts, jams, fresh coffee and eggs and bacon for those who felt like it.
Our experience really was wonderful and made even more so by the fact that our children were happy. The owners made us feel comfortable and welcome that we almost felt like we were staying with friends for the night.
Whilst the pros far outweigh the cons the chateau did not have all of the mod cons you would expect of a business hotel but oozed the charm of an old French chateau in the countryside which is exactly what we as a family were looking for!
