“Decaying grandeur”

We spent a week here as a group of 8 friends and booked the whole chateau. It is large and interesting and relatively comfortable. There was lots of space but the furnishings are tired. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean but not luxurious. The towels are thin and not high quality so it is worth paying extra euros to have the friendly housekeeper Giselle change the towels and do some cleaning and washing.
The dining room is dark and cavernous but relives old glories. With the uneven flagstone floor and fireplace you could be back in the 18th century.
This place exudes history and the owner, Dr Adrien Caprani is to be admired for taking on the long-term restoration of this late 16th century historic site. But if you are after luxury and creature comforts then this is not the place for you. It is located near an industrial area so first appearances of the surrounding area are disappointing, but there are delightful walks along the Meuse canal from Glaire and along the country road to the village of Illy.
The garden is being restored to its 18th century beauty and whilst it has a long way to go, it is the perfect place to sit in the sun. Unfortunately you can hear some traffic noise from the nearby motorway. The garden furniture is old and basic and could be improved. There is also very limited TV and no station which covered the World Cup! Attention to details such as these would improve the overall experience at the chateau.
This is a good base for battlefield fanatics (wars of 1870, 1940,Verdun and Rocroi). There is not much to see in Sedan apart from the castle, so 5 days at the chateau is probably enough. If you love history and don't need luxury then this is a very interesting place to stay.
