We stayed in the Sahara Room, the bed was clean, but the floors were filthy, dirty, gritty and full of dead insects, kept our shoes on at all time. Owner was pleasant enough but would not recommend a stay here

Truly a unique place - with unexpected service, country side, undisturbed surroundings - kept original in all aspects and with respect of history and heritage of generations - hop places like this will never merge to general public -

We couldn't have said it better. Thank you for catching up Domaine de Chatenay's "heart & soul" so well. Yet, we trust some of the general public might be susceptible to the charm of our character hotel... All the best !
