Overpriced historical building with views.
Opinión escrita el 12 de Septiembre de 2021
A magnificent chateau from the 1880s set within, what feels like, an Alpine setting. The ground floor has kept its historical feel whereas the bedrooms have wonderful modern bathrooms and a mishmash of furniture. Cots and old sofas fill the passageways.
There is a pool, tennis courts and an antique billiard table with rather old cues.
It is a quiet and peaceful setting.
There are no cooking facilities although the nearest restaurant was a 5 minute drive away.
The rooms are not in anyway luxurious although big and roomy with magnificent views. The suite is actually two attached bedrooms sharing a bathroom and there is not a separate lounge.
Breakfast was a disaster!
It is a basic continental breakfast for €15 each. There was one horribly overworked staff member who was trying to cope with breakfast for twenty people. We waited twenty minutes to be told where to sit, cereal and yoghurt was brought out after breakfast, and we were offered cheese when we had finished and left the table. It was not her fault and we were disappointed the owner was not around to assist her as she said her assistant was sick.
We felt it was overpriced for what is was especially as we could compare it to another 2 historical chateaux we had visited the previous week.
Great place to stay!

Amazing location in Boffres, France. Owners were extremely friendly and it is perfect for both adults and children as there are a pool and other amenities. It was a magical experience! Rooms are very spacious in good condition and breakfast was great. Would definitely visit again!
Excellent stay at the Chateau des Faugs

Wow - what a place! Has a charm which is really difficult to describe.
It's a beautiful chateau, in a spectacular location. The footprint of the Chateau remains untouched since it was built. Just the sound of birds and the countryside.
The flamboyant Christophe d'Indy (owner and direct descendent of the original owner) was out for dinner when we arrived, but we were welcomed by a host of charming young staff (all of whom seemed related/close friends of Christophe). We had complimentary rose on the steps.
Nothing is too much trouble. We came with a picnic and asked if we could sit on the wonderful terrasse in front of the chateau.. Absolutely! Water, glasses, plates, cutlery were instantly brought without asking.... a truly memorable evening watching the sun go down over the fields.
We had booked a historic suite, in Napoleon III style. Beautifully styled and clean and lovely bathroom... it really was a museum piece. You can access all the public rooms: and I really enjoyed the study, with so much historical books/magazines... You feel totally at home "comme chez soi"!
The swimming pool was beautiful and large (towels provided) - the tennis court free to use and wonderfully hidden in the woods. We played petanque on the terrrasse and ping-pong around the back.
Hard to say anything could be better , as even the minor things, (eg only 1 chair per bedroom) would have been fixed if we had asked. The rooms are nice and large. We took breakfast one day in the ornate dining room, which was a nice experience, and very continental: bread, croissant, jam, cheese - (but no eggs etc...) so we only did that once. There are no guides/instructions in the rooms or signs everywhere telling you what you can/cannot do... They are not needed, as any of the staff will answer instantly with a smile. There is a certain chaotic simplicity that we loved.
Above all the staff make the place what it is. Totally unpretentious, welcoming, home from home. The young staff always checking 'can we help?'. In some ways very not French (!), and not what we expected. You can share the kitchen, chat with them all, relax on the steps...
Christophe oversees everything with friendliness, laughter, smiles and it like an instant friend. You are made truly to feel like a guest, and when you stay there, you feel very honored. Feels very uncrowded, and the other guests all seemed very happy. No lunch/dinner on site - so you can head_out to a local resto, or picnic.
Room tips: all rooms have a view, as the Chateau is untouched and not extended. It's as it was 150 years ago. There are historical artifacts all over the place.
Summary - we are definitely going back, it's our new getaway in the Ardeche!
Magical - like staying with a family

After GPS failure we were talked in by Christophe and warmly welcomed on the entrance steps with a glass of Rose whilst our luggage was whisked to our palatial Royal Suite by the ever present and helpful Johann. The Chateau is stunning and full of the history and artefacts of the D'Indy family. During our five day stay Christophe gave us every assistance with our outings, restaurants for Dinner, and the fascinating family history. The communal breakfast each morning was a treat where we met many interesting other guests and enjoyed the plentiful home made food.
It has definitely potential!

We went to Chateau des Faugs for 4 nights with our two boys at 7 and 10 years.
It was quite special to be invited into the home of the Faugs and everybody made us feel at home. The facilities including the tennis court and the pool area was good as well our junior suite.
But the whole concept needs to be developed. The stay included only breakfast, so the rest og the day and evening, you needed to go to town 15 min by car to eat and get supplies. The problem was, that we didn't have a refregiator or access to a kichen, to be able to have some supplies on the castle. So either, they should offer guests to buy supplies on the castle or at least make room for the guests, to be able to store food.
