“A Great Stay” My wife and I stayed at the beautiful Chateau Elan Resort for a quick get away, we just want it to relax for a few days. From the time we check-in until we left, everything was top notch. Our check-in experience with Mr. Hakan was very pleasant, he gave us a great run down of what we would be able to do while we are staying here. The room was very clean and everything was working. We ate at marc, Paddy’s and Breakfast in Versailles, food was delicious and serves was great. The wines were surprisingly good and the winery got a great face-lift. Overall, we had a fantastic time and we can’t wait to be back soon.”
