Pros: Hotel employee are wonderful hosts. We arrived late afternoon and took the time to explore the beautiful domain. The atmosphere at dinner was formal but relaxed and convivial with aperitif and after-dinner drinks thrown in. Pets and child friendly.

Fantastic and very civilized experience. Marvelous place to stay even though it is not in a town that one might normally visit on a trip to France. Worth the extra effort getting there if it is near or on the way to somewhere you are going.
Pros: Fantastic place to stay and the hosts are great people. The meals we had there were excellent. Early check-in and late check-out if you like.
