As far as we are concerned, we have returned home to our various locations with full intentions of coming back next year!!
The following, will hopefully give you a good taste of how much we enjoyed our stay at the castle.
All of our good times gave me some inspiration – see our message below….
With regard to the layout, everything was perfect, the equipment is
generous which was great.
Just one thing that lacked: meat knives !!!
We were like children trying to cut our duck breast with dinner knives that were not so sharp (lol) but we got there!
There you have it, there was nothing else we could complain about.
The whole gang join me in thanking you for your trust,

A little message about our stay at the castle
Who has not dreamed of living in a castle one day ...
Well for us our dream has come through and it was simply a pleasure.
The first nights developed our imagination which, like a return to childhood, made us euphoric.
The imposing fireplace invited us to tell about this terrible drama of St Bartholomew which occurred in 1572 and which turned the story of this stone monster upside down.
We felt the soul of these few convicts and unconsciously awaited a sign from them of some form, certainly out of curiosity, to experience some appearance of an interaction with a "spirit" ....
Our friend Paulo, it seems, felt an unfriendly presence in the middle of the night but it will remain in the many anecdotes of the group.
So thank you to Mr Cédric Magne for his confidence, positive waves are emanating from his castle.
We laughed there, slept well, ate well (drank well but shhh) and the nightly silence was appreciated, soothing.
The weather was not good but everyone was able to enjoy this superb Cantal landscape in their own way: walks, motorcycles, visiting Salers "nice in the rain", Aurillac where we contributed to the development of the turnover of the Bonal cheese dairy (lol).
Regarding our banquets, we had our meals prepared by Alex and Julie (local cooks) who have nothing to envy to the starred.
Do not hesitate to contact them for the pleasure of your taste buds and to taste their dishes on the big table in the living room under the disturbing, but amusing gaze of our 4 unknown characters eyeing our joy of living together.
We ended our evening in the game of palms room but without playing the game of palms, a resemblance of a Retro pub with games and music if you knew how to immerse yourself in the atmosphere.
So cool !!!
In short, an experience that deserves to be lived, we took full advantage of this stay a little outside the norm.
A bunch of "not so young" but who are always up for a laugh.
