The Hotel du Chateau or Castle Hotel is just steps from
Valangin castle, and is in the center of the beautiful
mediaeval village. I've not stayed in, much less entered the hotel,
so I don't know if the interior is as picturesque as the exterior.
The village itself though is charming and quiet. Walks through the
forest are minutes away, the castle museum is worth seeing for its
eclectic collection, and the vibrant town of Neuchâtel
and the immense Lake Neuchâtel is a mere ten minutes
away by car.
A small restaurant, a pleasant little place to get a bite to eat,
resides in the same building as the hotel. The owner of the restaurant
also owns a deli just off the square Place des Halles in
downtown Neuchâtel. Just across the street from both
the hotel, restaurant, and castle is a small bakery where you can
munch some local pastries and sit for a cup of coffee.
Though the village of Valangin is small it is a quaint
place to stay. More restaurants, hotels and Activities are
not far if you have a car or take the bus. A local bus runs in and out of Valangin to
Neuchâtel and points beyond. The central train station
in Neuchâtel will take you to destinations all over
Switzerland, and of course all over Europe.
