Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be prepared for all or part of your stay, and you cannot beat the outstanding hospitality, the incredible food and the warm and welcoming atmosphere. If you’ve always dreamt of staying in a splendid chateau which combines privacy and freedom with exceptional service, look no further than Chateau du Chiron.
