We had exactly the holiday we wanted – a complete rest! On the Friday night we had a meal at the Mine d’Or which was excellent – thanks for the suggestion.

Look forward to returning!

We're back in the states after a great holiday. The chateau was absolutely wonderful and more than we could have hoped for. Look forward to returning at some point in the future.
