Yes. Inquire hotel for details.
There’s no mistaking this splendid palatial structure from the distance. It’s impressive rural setting along a lake and beside sweeping lawns is welcoming and peaceful.
The feeling here is more of an elegant country house hotel rather than a grand castle. It’s the kind of place where you stroll about the countryside and then come back to grab a book from the hotel’s library and find a quiet corner to read in. Public rooms are large with wood floors and painted ceilings.
Tastefully decorated guest rooms are also spacious. Be aware that double rooms have either a bath or shower, not both.
The suites have great views of the lake and park. Their “Pompeian style” ceiling paintings are wonderful. Bathrooms in the suites feature both baths and showers.
For those on a more modest budget, during the regular season rooms in the stables are offered for a reduced price. The stables are just 50 meters away from the main house, through the park.
The hotel serves dinner in a wine cellar, or if the weather is fine, outside on the terrace overlooking the park and lake. Meals are from a fixed three-course menu, with very limited a la carte options.
