We spent two nights at this historic castle in April and were treated to a wonderful recounting of the history as we were shown some of the special areas, including the chapel. Staying at this castle is more of an adventure than staying at a hotel or inn, there are so many things to see as you go to the...

Our two night stay in the historic chateau was perfectly enchanting! Our fairy tale gift to our daughters, of a stay in an authentic castle, could not have been more magically accommodated by this magnificent home. Count Loic and Countess Caroline, who lovingly manage the estate, inherited from a lineage of generations, abundantly host their guests with the assistance of...

You'll be delighted by the wonderful gardens (blossoms of flowers in the parc when we were there beginning of October.) Delighted by the captivating history of the caste and Loïc's family, the comte de ces lieux, although I must admit having really never be intersted and proficient in history during my studies. Delighted by the charming castles, prince and princess...

I stayed here with my small family and two other families in 2011 (not December 2012!). We rented the dependencies for a week and had a great time. A very special place. Furniture and surroundings were a bit dated and maybe not in the best shape, but nothing to really be worried about. Otherwise this was simply a very unique...

We stayed for one night in August, we loved it. It is a real chateau, with real charm because it is not highly polished. We were a family of 5, had a "family room" (which was 2 adjoining rooms, one a four poster with a lovely modern bathroom) which was perfect. The kids enjoyed the pool. Loic and his wife...

Stayed for one night in August. The owner provides a very interesting tour of the chateau which is well worth doing. Our room was very old, but with a reasonably modern bathroom. We didn't have the best nights sleep, hence the 4 stars, as our bed was not terribly comfortable, but other than that we had a memorable and interesting...

This was my first chateau experience and I absolutely loved it. The accommodation and hosts were absolutely amazing. We had a very warm welcome, sipped champagne in the courtyard with the count and countess. How often does that happen. We had a silver service 4 course superb dinner listening to Debussy. A world away from the hustle and bustle of...

As already stated this isn't a Disneyland castle all glossy and fake but a genuine castle. Yes its a little tired around the edges but you do feel the sense of history and family traditions here. Unfortunately we used a GPS and took the wrong reading and ended 100 k out of the way ,so do double check you have...

At first sight, this building looks derelict, but there are owners in residence and it is very very old inside with lots of original features such as original chapel from 15th century inside the building. Needs loads and loads of work but very reasonable at 110 euros including breakfast. The owner is charming as is his family, and very interested...

There is really little praise that can be added that has not already been said in previous reviews other than to support that the chateau is real, the experience authentic, the building beautiful in showing it's fragility and age, the surroundings magnificent and peaceful and the story-telling first hand as Compte de Ternay's lineage is resident in the demeure since...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The de Ternay family have been bringing alive this historic monument, which dates from the 15th and 19th centuries, since 1606. Within the walls of the Château nestles a small chapel which is considered to be a masterpiece of gothic art. The warm and friendly welcome that you will receive in these prestigious surroundings, where strength and elegance join forces, is a promising start to your stay in a haven of peace. From your room, enjoy views over the calm sweep of the Dive valley, or the Château grounds, with trees that have stood for centuries. The authenticity of this historic site is a real pleasure to discover. ... more   less
