This grand chateau is the genuine article. It's a labour of love by Anne and Alfred who have preserved it rather than tarted it up. The three of us stayed in a suite of rooms with a 200 year old bath - but plenty of hot water. The floors are wonky, the decor is period-gloomy in places but it is absolutely authentic and a real delight. Alfred showed us around the workshop where he makes and restores organs - fascinating. And there are several instruments to play in the house. If you are after five star luxury and flat screens, look elsewhere. But there are many of those - often rather bland - places, while Chateau du Quengo is a unique insight into life in a stately French home.
