..... after long drive down from Calais, what a warm, charming quiet place this is ..... absolutely loved the old feel of the place with all its quirky decor ........ recommended a superb local restaurant to eat in and home again for a good sleep in a lovely ensuite room over looking the courtyard .......... fabulous breakfast in the morning and on-wards to our next stop ....... shame we could not have stayed a little longer, but it was a clean, well presented and got our road trip off on the right note !! thanks ...........
Very familiar B & B with very delicious meals at evening. Kids ans animals friendly. It is near the street but the rooms are very quiet. The B & B has a beautifull garden and a swimming pool at disposition. Once you stayed there, you want to return asap.
This is a charming rustic property, beautifully renovated and decorated by Sandrine and her husband. Before moving on to the review, best to give you a heads-up that there are 3 resident dogs - no problem for us as we love dogs but if you have any kind of canine issue, two of the dogs are large belgian Bouviers and they like to mix with the guests in the garden area (but are not allowed into any internal guest area). The accommodation choice is important because two of the bedrooms (suites) are at the top of one wing of this modest but enchanting Chateau. If you don't mind lots of stairs, the top rooms are super for two sets of friends or parents with a teenage child. There is a landing converted into a nice TV area between the two bedrooms, both of which are large, have their own ensuites and one of which has both a double bed and a single bed. With being so old, the wooden floors are very squeaky - not a problem if you are on the top floor but I wonder how it is if you are one floor down where there is another bedroom suite. On the ground level, there is a small communal kitchen with a fridge, cooker and farm table and four chairs. There is a separate ground floor bedroom with ensuite in the adjoining wing (this looked okay for wheelchairs but best to check that the toilet and shower are also disability friendly if you need such a facility). There is also a separate gite but we didn't view it so can't comment. Sandrine provides a wonderful breakfast of home made pastries, bread, fruit and eggs (on request). All guests eat breakfast together at a large farmhouse kitchen in another renovated part of the property. "All guests" means a maximum of around 10, excluding the gite, but there were never more than 8 during our 3 night stay. If required, Sandrine will also produce a lovely supper at a very reasonable price but best to give her a bit of notice. We are non-meat eaters and we enjoyed a delicious fish based meal with locally produced wine. The pool area is separate to the house and has a generous amount of sun beds surrounding a modest sized pool, which was clean and unheated, as far as we could tell (we experienced unseasonal rain and low temperatures during our stay so we did not swim!). It is very pleasant including the vegetable patch and other aspects of the garden. The chateau sells local wine by the bottle so, although there is not hotel bar, as such, if you want to enjoy sitting in the garden after a long day's drive, Sandrine will provide you with wine and fresh cherries (a delicious combination). The only real negative was the internet connection. Intermittent and unreliable. We managed to get at least one connection per day so we were able to do all we needed to put you might want to consider buying a dongle from France Telecom or one of the other service providers if you are going to stay for a while and need immediate internet access. There are some gorgeous and interesting places to visit locally (Chaval's dream palace is quite impressive) and Lyon is about 1hr 15 mins by motorway. Three practical things to note.....1.) Cash is king (euros) and I don't think that Sandrine has credit card facilities (I could be wrong so please check if this is important to you). 2.) It will help you if you can express your needs with some basic French. However, although Sandrine's knowledge of English is not extensive, she is an excellent reader of face and body language so don't be deterred if you are linguistically challenged. 3.) It is not easy to find the property because it is tucked away, up a side road and the entrance to the parking space and property is just an opening in the road (our sat nav did find the road but we overshot because it is so small). There is parking for about 6 cars, plus a larger space for one large people carrier. If you have a campervan you might struggle for space. Not sure that I would travel the 25 minutes from the motorway for an overnight stop if I was just in transit but, if I wanted a break of between 2 and 4 nights, this place is certainly worth considering. Merci Sandrine!…
We stayed at the Chateau de la Saone due to attending a funeral nearby. Sandrine could not have been more kind to us and our friends. The rooms were comfortable and the breakfast was out of this world. We will definitely visit again under happier circumstances.
Sandrine was very welcoming and we had a lovely room on the ground floor. The pool was excellent and provided a cooling off after a long day's drive. We had a splendid dinner with wine and then an excellent breakfast in the morning, and it was all very reasonably priced. Very convenient for the motorway, and we were soon heading south to the Mediterranean. Would certainly recommend.
