We spent one night at Chateau de Sassetot for Valentines, except that we actualy stayed on 13th Feb, as by the time we came to make the reservation they were fully booked up. From their own website ------- we selected their "Les Petites Dalles" package for 150 euros, which included a "chambre charme", "Escapade" menu and breakfast for two. We thought this was pretty good value. Our only disappointment was that we had expected the "chambre charme" to be a room with 4 poster bed, but on arrival, it was a nice kingsize bed, but no 4 poster. We questioned this, and were told that only one room had a 4 poster. They obviously advertise their best room but if you want the 4 poster you will need to ask for it specifically. The room itself was fine, a corner room on the 2nd floor with views over the front lawn and farm next door. It had a good modern bathroom with power shower, though the bathroom could have done with some heat as in February it was v chilly, especially because of the tiled floor. The bedroom had 2 good radiators though.
The Chateau itself is a splendid building set in its own large grounds and is very peaceful.
The dining room was elegant with an open log fire. There was a separate bar/lounge area for pre-dinner drinks. Our menu comprised 6 courses, if you included the various canapes and cheese course, alongside the starter, main course and dessert we selected. Food was well presented and good quality although we struggled to finish so many courses! But there were various other menu options to choose from and you could have just booked a room and then ordered dishes on the evening.
We would recommend the Chateau for an upmarket short break. It's easy to get to from Dieppe and a good base to explore the fascinating Normandy countryside (hunt out the village stream with ducks, running through Veules-les-Roses) and nearby coastal resorts (our favourite being Etretat).
