“Wonderful experience, Beautiful Location, a step back in time!”

Traveled with the same group as the previous reviewer and don't know what her problem is!
Saw no mold, there was some mustiness as there would be in a 300 year old Chateau. The accommodations were as described in our trip itinerary and information. This is not a hotel and was never presented as such. If you have an issue with location and maid service stay at a hotel and miss the wonderful experience that this property provides. In the United States you wouldn't find anything with this much charm and history.
The Chateau was a wonderful place to stay and I will look forward to returning again. Just not with the bunch of complaining Hens that I had to endure on this trip.

“mold people sick, no staff or services, looks pretty”

I went with a group. two people got sick. The smell of mold is pervasive. The chateau looks beautiful but is isolated, four hours from Paris, three from Giverney. We drove hours each day to get anywhere. the Chateau has no staff , no maid service, you don't get clean sheets or towels. We were told any food even a mint would bring mice to our rooms. No phone service, no television, wifif in one room.
In United States I do not think this place would meet basic standards, Mold is dangerous.
One star is for beauty only

“Wow!”
Reviewed 7 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Never have I been to such a beautiful place in my life. The chateau, the country side, the peacefulness, the villages, the food and drink and definitely our host!! David was so hospitable and made our weekend away. Handling a group of 6 ladies is not easy but he certainly did so with style and I know I speak for each of us when I say that it was the beat weekend get away we've ever had. Thank you.
