A basic generic hotel, but very pleasant and ticked all the boxes. Spotlessly clean, well-maintained with efficient, pleasant staff and good security (late night entry system). Bed was very comfortable and we were thrilled to find this accommodation after a horror the night before.
Only downside was in relation to local amenities. We arrived latish on a Sunday evening and tried to find food locally, however everything was shut, or closing as we arrived, so McDonalds was all that was available. We shouldn't really have ben surprised in such a rural location.
The Chateau de Briottieres is located on a majestic estate, and represents the efforts of its owners to maintain a magnificent family home. Our experience at this location was positive in almost all ways. We were free to sit in the amazing salons, use the pool, exercise on the grounds and stroll in the garden. Our room was very small, but the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom facilities clean and adequate. We also had a stunning view of the front lawn, chapel, and pond. There was easy parking. There was no elevator, which made handling our oversized luggage a little difficult. We decided to have dinner at the chateau--a little pricey at 55 Euros each--but an excellent culinary experience. The food was delicious and elegantly served. The candlelight made for a magical evening. We did have a group of very ill-behaved adolescents--the fault of their parents, not the management's. Overall, we had a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

Our stay was relaxing and there was a very friendly welcome from the owners. One evening we had a reception with other guests, both French and English, in the beautiful, large garden. We sampled sparkling wine from Saumur. Our room had a door leading to the garden where we had our own table and chairs.The decor was authentic 18th century perhaps and all the furniture and ornaments were in keeping with a chateaux. Parts of the house go back to 16th Century and there were large fire places in the main two dining rooms. The guests were allowed to use one of the dining rooms whenever they liked. The swimming pool and table-tennis provided us our entertainment as there were no televisions. We were provided with a laptop when we asked.
