Early Autumn Break

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the gate house in middle September. The property is in a very peaceful countryside location and well equipped. Most of the chateaux along the Loire Valley are within a 60 - 90 minute drive which makes it perfect for day trips. It is best suited to a family or couple, the bedrooms are upstairs under the eaves so be careful it you are on the tall side. Supermarkets a 15 minute drive and a wonderful bakery in the village 5 minutes away.

Charming property in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here, the house does have lots of character, with everything you need, and set in lovely grounds. Very peaceful and relaxing. The bakery in saint paterne racan is fantastic and there is a supermarket less than 20mins drive away to stock your cupboards. We found it a good location to explore the Loire valley from (provided you have a car). The owner was very helpful, friendly, relaxed and welcoming.

Would heartily recommend this place

Wonderful base for touring the Loire Valley!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in the gatehouse of Château d'Hodebert for a week the end of May. It was an ideal base for exploring the wonders of the Loire Valley. The accomodations were comfortable and our hostess made sure we had everything we needed. We also enjoyed exploring the grounds of the estate and meeting many of its four-legged inhabitants (dogs, donkey, horses, cows etc..).

We would certainly recommend to anyone.

A delightful rental in a real fairy-tale setting.

  • 5 of 5

Live the dream (for a week) in the gatehouse of a real French Chateau. Very comfortable house with room for a couple or small family. Charm plus the modern conveniences.

Located in beautiful countryside

  • 4 of 5

This cosy gate house is located between two villages in the Loir Valley. It is well equipped and would be suitable for a young couple and children. The owners are very kind, helpful and hospitable. Our hostess provided us with two lovely local cheeses upon our arrival. There are many great walks in the area and too many good restaurants to mention. The fireplace was a great asset as the weather was a bit cool and rainy during our stay.

Annähernd ideale Lage für Kulturbeflissene und ambitionierte Wanderer.

  • 4 of 5

Das kleine, aber für zwei bis vier Personen absolut ausreichende zum Chateau d`Hodebert gehörende (Pförtner?)Haus ist stilvoll eingerichtet, verfügt über alle wünschenswerten Ressourcen und bildet den idealen Ausgangspunkt für Gäste, welche die im Umkreis von ca. 40 bis 60 km erreichbaren Kathedralen, Schlösser und gut erhaltenen mittelalterlichen Städte kennen lernen wollen. - kl.
