Malgré l'annonce très attrayante, nous avons été très déçus de notre voyage. A notre arrivée, la température intérieure ne dépassait pas 13°C et celle des salles de bain 10°. Les 72h que nous avons malgré tout passé dans ce château n'ont pas suffit pour que ce château se réchauffe. Nous n'avons reçu aucune aide de la part du propriétaire pour régler le problème et la communication a été très difficile. Par ailleurs, le WiFi n'a pas fonctionné du week-end, une pièce non éclairée, une douche que nous n'avons jamais pu faire fonctionner. Une expérience malheureuse et un week-end un peu gâché à tenter de trouver des solutions et à avoir froid

Nous avons eu un très bon weekend. Le château et la région étaient fabuleux, comme tu peut voir aux photos.
