great place

  • 4 of 5

We stayed one week in the house with 10 people to make music. The atmosphere of the house is wonderful, it is cosy, warm. Very personal, like an own house you always wanted to have. We had, unfortunately, very bad weather, so no haning around the swimming pool, no barbecuing and no sitting in the sun. But now we could enjoy the big fireplace - we had the fire on from early morning till late at night - as 'center' of the house.

The house has so many nice rooms and areas. We could make music in different rooms, while there was still room for others to sit quiet and read books. The kitchen with the big table is perfect all necessary cooking and baking equipment is there, and a good place to sit and drink when others cook, or to have breakfast and tea.

In short: great place. We will - hopefully - be back!

Schlossherren auf Zeit

  • 5 of 5

Die Beschreibung sowie die zahlreichen Fotos haben in uns große Erwartungen geweckt. Um es kurz zu sagen, unsere Vorstellungen wurden vor Ort noch übertroffen. Wir haben mit unserer Familie (vier Generation im Alter zwischen 6 Monaten und 82 Jahren) hier zwei wunderschöne Wochen verbracht. Die Einrichtung ist stilvoll und dennoch praktisch. Das Kochen in der großen Schlossküche, die gemeinsamen Mahlzeiten am großen Esstisch sowie das abendliche Zusammensein am Kamin waren eine Freude. Das parkähnliche Grundstück wird liebevoll von einem Hausmeisterehepaar gepflegt, das ganz in der Nähe wohnt und auch für Fragen zum Haus und der Umgebung bereitsteht. Die Sehenswürdigkeiten des Loiretals sind per Auto gut zu erreichen aber auch die unmittelbare Umgebung ist es wert, kennengelernt zu werden. Im Restaurant vor Ort kann man gut und preiswert zu Mittag essen.

CHARME et CONFORT.

  • 5 of 5

Notre séjour annuel en famille s'est déroulé de la meilleure façon qu'il soit d'envisager. Château au grand charme, très bien équipé tant literie que vaisselle et linge, meubles de belle facture, emplacement au cœur de la nature. Accueil prévenant du couple de gardiens. Il a fait un temps rêvé pour un mois d'avril et la région est très riche de possibilités.

Un excellent souvenir pour tous.

Peaceful retreat in a beautiful period home

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful chateau north of Tours for one week, but wished we could stay longer. We rented the main house, as we were only 2 adults and 3 children, but there is an option to also rent the coach house which we would consider doing in the future with a larger group. The chateau has the charm of its period origins, and the necessary amenity for living, dining and bathing. We particularly enjoyed relaxing in the "pink" room, which, filled with light from the windows overlooking the gardens on two sides and the space afforded by the high ceilings, had a lovely aspect and feel. We were surprised that there was no television/DVD player in the living areas, but did not really need it, spending better family time cooking, exploring outdoors, or reading and playing games.

Our children enjoyed the pool, which is located on the other side of the garden, and has a BBQ, and games room next to it. The gardens are extensive, and again the children enjoyed exploring all the nooks and crannies.

The chateau is located an easy drive to Tours, where you can find markets, interesting shops, historical buildings and supermarkets (and even a traditional circus which was the children's highlight whilst we were there). There are many attractions in the area, within about an hours drive of the chateau.

After the initial enquiry, we dealt directly with the owners, who are very pleasant, informative and attentive. During our stay, the housekeeper and handyman, who live in a house on the property, were available to address any issues. There was also an option to order interesting French meals in advance at a very reasonable cost from the housekeeper. We did not take up this option, as my husband loves to cook on his holidays.

We will definitely look to stay at this home again, but with a bigger group of family and friends, so we can share this amazing experience!
