Perfect character-filled short break with super-friendly hosts
Avaliou em 26 de Fevereiro de 2019
We are very experienced travellers to France and, once again, cheap flight driven, took a four day/three night break via Limoges airport; we really like Limousin. Small, family-orientated chateaux are a wonderful choice, and that dictated our search. Chateau de la Chabrouile is exceptional. Lovingly owned by Phillippe and his wife it had the feeling of a real family home whilst providing a massive bedroom, authentically furnished with wonderful views. Family members, including two of four daughters and a number of small grandchildren, added to the mix without being in any way intrusive. Breakfasts were fine (ignore some previous reviews); local walking is lovely in clear February air, star-gazing is exceptionally romantic, and three country restaurants close-by were booked by our hosts. Loads of room throughout the chateau for relaxing, just reading or snoozing. For those critics who wanted a tarmac drive, you made the wrong choice through ignorance; for those who want a taste of French family country life, don't hesitate: we'll definitely return.
Avoid if you have a pet. Poor communication from the hotel. Shame as the hotel looks beautiful.

I booked this hotel on Monday for next year.I told them I had two small dogs each weighing 10kg each. They are of the type that don’t shed their fur and are very well behaved. Never had any complaints from the 8 years that I have been staying in hotels and I get a response today 4 days later.
From the hotel “Doga are too bigs”
There isn’t nothing in the policy pages about dog size or having more than one yet the filter was ‘PetFriendly’
It’s a good goodjob I wasn’t travelling the day after I booked it.
Negatives outweigh the Positives

I'm usually generous with my Tripadvisor reviews but in my opinion the negatives here outweigh the positives, so because 3 is average I have to rate this chateau as below average at 2.
On the plus side, it's close to Limoges and the bed was comfortable. But the first negative that greets you is the very rough drive, some 500m long; it’s badly rutted and muddy. Okay if you're in a 4x4 but don't arrive in a nice clean car. As previously mentioned, there are no lock on the doors which my wife found very strange. Our bathroom, in the turret, was tastefully decorated however the shower is unusable because the shower curtain is far too small so to avoid flooding the floor you have to sit in the bath to wash, not ideal!
Finally my biggest negative was the meagre breakfast. A basket with just 1 small croissant (each) and some bread is not a continental breakfast. There were no eggs, no cold meats, no cheese, no fruit, no yoghurt nor cereals. I was genuinely surprised when I was asked to pay for it because at €10 it was a very expensive cup of coffee and croissant.
in summary the owners, who seemed pleasant enough, need to up their game because, as has been said, there are plenty of chateaux to choose from in France.
What a gem!

After spending half an hour and numerous phone calls to the owner, eventually found this wonderful Chateau. Off the main N21/D74 road, a long drive up to Chateau. Beware potholes! Wonderful sight with turrets. Rooms full of character. Banister and floors beautifully restored. Comfortable bed and cushions. Bathroom modern and fully functional with good shower cubicle if a little smaller than we have at home. A good nights sleep waking up to cows and hens noises. Breakfast was great, with wonderful home made yoghurt, bread, croissants and jams and fruit. Great start to day. Recommendable? Definately.

We wanted to experience staying in a chateau whilst on France and we weren't disappointed. It's important to set and manage expectations - from the start we knew that it wasn't going to be a luxurious, modern 5 star hotel. And that was perfectly fine! What you have is a beautiful, quaint, charming chateau with full of history and character. If that's what you're after, you won't be disappointed. The host greeted us and showed us our room which was large, clean and spacious. There is no key to the rooms so, don't be alarmed. The floors are creaky but what else would you expect from an old chateau! The bathrooms have been modernised. The plumbing was a little loud but that just comes with the age of the home itself. Inside the chateau, there are lovely large sitting rooms on different levels for you to enjoy a book if you wish. Breakfast was extremely lovely in a beautiful kitchen. Overall we had a very pleasant stay and the hosts were wonderful.
