Price: the owner would like you to stay on the domain for at least two days. Simulating a shorter one night stay through the site, we are currently not finding any options. The cheapest room – gîte la chapelle – is still available at the end of September for 400 euros for two nights. There is even more availability for those who want to spend the late summer, but the prices are higher. If you want to spend the night in the castle itself, the price for three nights quickly rises to 2,000 euros. You can then divide the sum by 20 to 22 guests.
