An easy 1.5 hour drive from Paris, this chateau is closer than most as it is north of the Loire Valley, but it is still convenient enough to visit both the chateaux of the Loire Valley and Chartres. Chartres is about 25 minute drive, Chenonceau is 1,25 hours, Cheverny is 1 hour 20 minutes, as is Blois. Smaller Chateaux, like... More

The room is by far not what it looks like on the pictures, and what you'd expect for the price ! It is oldfashioned and outdated. I am not english so I don 't know how to say it but I would say " shabby and worn". We even had a brown blanket with sheet on the bed instead of... More

First of all I'd like to say that the grounds of the Chateau are amazingly beautiful. The food is great, we had lunch, breakfast, and room service. The service was excellent, very attentive, professional, and courteous. After we checked in they escorted us to our room. I immediately was worried because the carpet is really old and ugly. When entering... More

Having read the reviews this looked ideal, so I emailed the property to check availability. Received a presumptuous email confirming my reservation when I had simply enquired as to availability, and was also quoted a price 100€ more than the price advertised on the hotel's own website. In this digital age, you simply cannot attempt to pull stunts like this.... More

From the outside this Chateau looks fantastic however once inside it is clear that a major refurbishment is well overdue. having said that the food was pretty good and the staff were excellent. So if you plan to visit please dont set our expectations too high.

I stayed at Chateau D'Esclimont this past August and enjoyed it very much. The chateau transports you to the 16 th Century, having a real moat! The food and service are excellent! The property does need to be repaired and the new owners will in 2016.Once it is renovated wow it will be amazing and I imagine more expensive.. So... More

I could not help but gasping as my car drove down into the magnificent looking chateau. This might be one of the most beautiful properties I have ever stayed in. I was not too impressed with my room, however. The furniture is somewhat old and beat up, and the linens have seen better days. Also, unfortunately, August was a very... More

The Chateau is only a short drive from Chartres, but offers a tranquil base, away from the crowds and tourism. The rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated. The breakfasts and dinners were outstanding. The somelier was very attentive and recommended splendid wines. The chateau itself and the beautiful grounds were a delight to explore.

We where touring around and staying at a bunch of chateaus and Chateau d´Esclimont was the very best. The venue, the service and food was at its best. Taking a jogging tour in the park and to see the local wild animals, before breakfast was great. We´ll be back.
