We decided to stay here not as a base for sightseeing but as a base to totally relax, as we had been sightseeing over the last 5 weeks and thought a break would be nice. We were not disappointed, especially when the weather was so kind to us during our 2 night stay here. This property is situated in a very quiet village overlooking the most magnificent views of vineyards and small buildings. Upon arrival we were able to get through the entrance gates via a press button/camera and parked the car easily. We walked to reception without luggage and was checked in by a warm friendly staff member. We were offered a cool drink plus something to eat (yummy cake), which was on display near the reception desk. ( Nice touch). After doing some paper work, we were shown to our room, we had booked one of the Chai Suites and was not disappointed. The room was spacious, modern and had every amenity that we could have wished for. Unfortunately I opened up the window and immediately the flies came into the room, therefore window was closed quickly. Upon turn-down, it appeared that housekeeping had gotten rid of most of the flies that I had let in. Dinner on the first night was at their restaurant taken on the terrace, as it was a pleasant night. One draw back, a cat was going from table to table in the hope of some food. (Note - I am not a cat lover at all) Service was excellent, good advice given for the wine and the food was enjoyable, especially the rum souffle - extremely delicious. The outdoor pool is hidden in a secluded part of the garden - very peaceful, even when some children were down here. Towels were provided close by. Perhaps a suggestion - when the weather is good (like we had), a staff member or service (like a phone) for a drink &/or snack would be nice instead of having to wander up to obtain this. Good sun-loungers with covers on & cushions provided. Plenty of shade thanks to the trees. The car park does fill up quickly - the second night of our stay we had to park across the road - guessing the car park was full of restaurant guests as the next day the property was quiet. Breakfast one morning was very busy and the food was not re-stocked, which was disappointing. Had to ask for bowls, milk - no yoghurt, fruit had run out etc. Following morning the complete opposite - well stocked - nice and warm eggs etc. The spa area was lovely - great gym (although only small) plus a small indoor heated pool, which we used. Unfortunately we did not experience a spa treatment, although it did appear popular. The staff here worked hard and were always friendly. Definitely would recommend staying here. Collapse

We returned here for 3 nights recently after falling in love with this fabulous place some three years ago to be slightly disappointed to see service standards and lack of basics such as adequate wifi (very poor absolutely everywhere). The standard of staff and their attention to detail varied significantly - some really were great but a number seemed extremely casual and seemed to forget that we were there (or not notice we didn't have cutlery, water, bread etc). The hotel was also in need of some capital spending . The spa addition since our last trip however was first class and highly recommended. Collapse
One of the most stunning locations ever.

Set in the heart of the beautiful countryside of southern Beaujolais with its ‘golden stones’ villages, this hotel is a pure oasis of calm in which to relax and unwind. It has a secluded outdoor pool which was ideal in the baking hot weather we were lucky to have, and an indoor heated pool for less balmy days as well as spa, which we did not use. Rooms in the main chateau where we stayed, are individual and full of character, trying to stay in tune with the 12th century fabric of the building and amazing views over the landscape. We had a suite which was spacious. There are heavy old shutters on the inside of the windows, which is good for blackout when cold but when hot, the lack of air-conditioning means open windows and early light and dawn chorus of birds. The bathroom was well appointed with a quirky boxed chair toilet, lovely Hermes bath products and large soft towels. Slippers and bathrobes are provided. However, missing was a decent shower. There was only a hand held shower in the bath, which flooded the surround and cascaded down the wall, and floor, a perennial problem judging from the evident water damage to the floor tiles in that area. The bathroom space is large and could easily accommodate a proper walk in shower. So my advice is to check in advance, as I personally always look for a shower, when on holiday. The restaurant is very good with a super in house chef, but be sure to book for dinner as it can get very busy. There is seating in the ancestral hall and out on the pretty terrace with lovely views. Breakfast is extra and quite expensive but there is nothing in the village outside so unless you are driving to the next village of Bois D’Oignt, there is nowhere local to pick up coffee and croissants. The staff are all lovely and couldn’t have been more helpful. There is free, secure, on site parking though it can get pretty busy in the evenings when non-resident guests visit the restaurant or attend outside events. We loved our stay here and we hope to be back sometime. Collapse

Can't say enough good things about the hotel. the property is gorgeous sitting in an amazing setting with amazing views. The room we had was exceptional - large, well done and very comfortable. The pool area is wonderful, and the staff was incredibly responsive and helpful both before we got there, and while there. A wonderful place to say. Enjoy every second of it. Collapse

It's helpful to note up front that the chateau isn't bursting with modern amenities and the type of posh luxury you might associate with a 5* property...but that isn't the reason you'd stay here. It's a centuries old castle that brings with it a truly unique aesthetic that's necessarily a little rustic. The chateau is in a small town set off the main road in an already pastoral setting, it's just removed enough to give you the feeling of being disconnected. The views from the property are spectacular and the chateau grounds are beautiful. Service is attentive and top notch. The restaurant's food and service are fantastic, and the surroundings at meals equally unique. Collapse
