There are multiple options available to dine, inside and outside. Most of our guests prefer to have lunch and dinner outside, at the long dining tables. You can put the tables wherever you want, on the terrace or near the cinema. The easiest option is when you go outside from the kitchen, right there.
There is an indoor dining room available, for when the weather is less good.You have to take one staircase up to reach it from the kitchen.
There are tables and chairs available for 30+ persons. so there are two full sets of dining tables and chairs; one for outside and one for inside.
woodfire pizza oven
Have you ever made your own woodfire pizza? Now you can try! There is a traditional wood-fired oven available for use at chateau montjoi.
All groups are free to use the ancient wood-fired oven at Chateau Montjoi. There is wood available (you might have to chop it into some smaller pieces).
The oven has to get burning around 3 hours before the first pizza will go in, so it will be properly heated. When the oven is at temperature, the wood will be pushed to the sides, and around 4 pizzas can go in at the same time.
It will only take 3-5 minutes when the wood is just pushed to the sides, for the pizzas to be ready. The thickness of the bottom, and the amount off topping of course also make a difference in the baking time.
If you are with a big group (30 p), or just really like pizza, and want to eat two, it might be necesairry to refill wood, once in the middle of baking. The caretakers can explain it all to you.
