Set in a quiet and peaceful area, this lovely château offers gracious country living with personalized service.
Guest rooms come in three categories: “Château Living,” “Floral Notes,” and “Meuse Valley.” Most rooms vary in size from large with high ceilings to beamed rooms under the attic. Decor can be contemporary to more traditional, and a few rooms feature canopy beds. Views vary as well. Some have views of the rear courtyard, others have partial views of the river, and (of course) the best ones have gorgeous views of the park.
Bathrooms are large and modern.
The château also has an elevator, which is a feature you don’t see too often in castle hotels.
You won’t be disappointed with the excellent cuisine in the château’s restaurant. The restaurant closes for certain meals and on certain days of the week, depending on the season—be sure to ask.
At the end of the day, take a stroll on the grounds and look for the heronry. Each spring herons come here to nest.
Family run with attentive service
