  • Karen Brown's Recommendation:

James and Marie-José Hamel are a charming couple who take great pleasure in welcoming guests to their magnificent manor home. Originally a fortress dating from the 12th century, the château was rebuilt in 1450 and again in 1750 and has a colorful history. The Hamels are fond of recounting the story of their most famous visitor, Andy Rooney of Sixty Minutes fame. Rooney worked here as a journalist during World War II when the château was inhabited by the American Press Corps and revisited in 1984. General Bradley was also stationed nearby. James, born three months after the end of the war, was a name his parents often saw in the press. Breakfast is served in the former press room complete with brass nameplate in English still intact on the door. A lofty ceiling, dark, pine-paneled walls, and a lovely old tile floor provide intimate surroundings to begin the day or enjoy an evening aperitif. Guest bedrooms are tastefully furnished and decorated with handsome antiques and harmonious color schemes. Les Jardins is a gorgeous room looking across the moat to the expanse of back garden. The rooms are found in a separate wing of the château, thus affording guests a convenient, private entry.
