    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hostellerie Le Griffon is a hotel (rooms start from 50 euros) and restaurant. We did not eat here, as we had already had lunch, but the menu looked great and very reasonable. The most telling factor about "le Griffon" was the amount of local pople eating there for Sunday lunch, the place was packed.

    The restaurant backs onto the grounds of the ruined chateau, with a large conservatory restaurant overlooking the grounds.

    I would definately give this place a try.

  • Which Way!!

    We came across the fun sign post near the carpark outside the chateau. If you enlarge the photo, I think you would agree this is not the most acurate sign post in the world!! I would love one in my garden though. (~_~)
