I was really looking forward to staying in a "castle" or chateau in France, but was extremely disappointed by the whole experience. We tried to check in one hour early, but was told no by a non-English speaking person who worked there who showed us their new check-in time, which was a half an hour later than we thought. We sat outside by the beautiful waterfall for a few minutes, but then decided to drive around the area for a little while, and quickly realized that the location of the hotel was going to be very inconvenient for us, since it was four miles from town. We walked around town a little bit and spent some time at the visitor's center. We found out that we were not going to be able to rent bikes as we had hoped for because all of the shops were closed on Monday. We did a little wine tasting and picked up a few bottles. Then we went looking for a grocery store or some food to take back to the hotel for a picnic dinner. Since it was Sunday, most of the stores were closed. We found a bakery and grabbed a loaf of bread. When we came back and checked in, we had to wait at least ten minutes for the hotel receptionist to arrive and help us. Our room was very basic and old, with no screens on the windows and no shower, just a bath. We took our wine, bread and some cheese we had brought with us and had a quiet picnic by the waterfall. We made the decision to leave the next morning since we weren't happy with the room, the remote location and no bike riding!
