Chateau de Baloigne is magical, in the most beautiful setting in the Ardeche. Surrounded by woodland, flowers, dragon and butterflies.
The setting was wonderful for a large family group as there are lots of places to lose yourself in the house and grounds and a wonderful dining place in which to all congregate.
Madame was so helpful and friendly and fascinating to have a tour of the ruins with the owner.
It was a wonderful way to celebrate my Mother's 70th birthday.
