How to Get There
I have read a few other reviews on the Fontenille, and speaking for myself I would the hotel to be a class act - Especially for a relatively small operation.
We had 2 rooms which were both generous in size and really beautifully designed interiors. The nice contrast is the exterior of the building is old, but the furnishings are all up to date.
The service was fantastic throughout our stay, warm friendly and on hand. Housekeeping we found to be quick and exceptionally good (which seems to be different from some other reviews). The staff in the bistro were particularly friendly, Kevin was extremely charming as was his female colleague (who's name we didnt get).
The grounds are lovely and it's so nice having the vineyard nearby. Overall we cannot wait to come back soon!
Going to make this simple. You can see from my profile I’m a seasoned traveler who reviews often and does not give ratings under 4/5 stars often.
1. Hire someone to help take luggage, we were offered help but from a young lady and my husband did not feel comfortable letting her. 2. If I ask to book at your restaurant, tell me there are TWO restaurants. We didn’t even know of this until we got to the hotel and a girl in the winery asked about our plans and let us know. We were unable to secure a reservation at the Michelin star restaurant on either night and asked to be put on waitlist. We were emailed by reception staff the next day letting us know there’s a cancellation and if we wanted the table. We missed the email because we have no data. When we saw it and called they said the email was WRONG. They did not explain what happened to the cancelled table. This obviously makes no sense and adds to the frustration.
3. Breakfast for 28 Euros is not worth it. Do not bother. Pure continental, no hot food and no service. You can make your own eggs...The single wait staff at the buffet restaurant did not clear tables, she stood around, and took items off the table to bring into the kitchen for what I assume was consumption by someone there.
renovated to perfection, and now a beautiful property within the Relais & Chateaux chain. We checked in by a helpful staff person, and were given an unexpected upgrade...our room was truly one of the nicest hotel rooms we have had lately...so tastefully done...colors, fabrics...wonderful bed...large modern bath with the most exceptional products..the shampoo I will try to order!!! We loved the feel, relaxed, not stuffy, contemporary, yet in keeping with an old French estate. Grounds were beautiful, the patio/restaurant looking over a large pond and into the distance. There is a pool, thankfully hidden over to the side, very nice and nicer that it didn't take away from the peaceful view of the grounds. Comfortable well thought out seating areas....and delightful restaurant both in the morning and evening. Breakfast was bountiful...wonderful local produce...dinner was creative and interesting...and delicious. We so enjoyed our moments here, hope to return sometime...and thank you Domaine de Fontenille for exceptional service and an exquisite property.
