A Gem in the Heart of the Loire

  • 5 of 5

La Grande Loge is a magnificent place to stay during a visit to the Loire Valley. As a group of four Canadian couples, we recently returned from biking in the region and spent an idyllic seven days enjoying this sumptuous and historic manor as a starting and ending point for each day's adventures. It is perfectly situated in central Loire near the small, charming village of Azay-le-Rideau and is easily accessible from Paris by train or car. Everything you need for a memorable vacation is close at hand - groceries, winery (Chateau d'Aulee has good whites), bike rental, a chateau, cafes, even a farmer's market which boasts amazingly fresh produce at this time of year. Yet its location at the edge of town, surrounded by farmers' fields, is very peaceful and feels like a country setting. You might even have a visit from neighbouring cows like we did!

The Loge itself is an exceptional home, and as other guests have mentioned, the pictures do not quite capture the size, grandeur and special feeling it evokes. The kitchen has all the "bells and whistles" and is well-stocked with equipment and staples, the bedrooms are roomy, the furniture/beds are very comfortable - we all slept well after days of touring and biking. There are 3 shower rooms, modernized and clean, and two separate rooms containing the toilets. The weather was hot and sunny during our stay so we really appreciated the easy-to-operate pool and the HUGE yard, filled with exquisite roses, in which it is situated. We spent every evening meal outdoors - a highlight!! For children, it is an ideal place with trees and lawn that extend forever, perfect to explore and play games of tag and soccer. There are also tons of pool toys and bath towels. Despite the draw of the many compelling sites in the local area as well as the neighbouring villages and towns, we so enjoyed the lawn, garden and pool that one day was devoted to relaxation of all this outdoor space had to offer.

If you are considering a group or family trip to the Loire, La Grande Loge is definitely the place to stay - we highly recommend it!

Beautiful house and gardens

  • 5 of 5

Many pictures of rentals do not measure up to what one sees when they arrive, not in this situation. House is an incredible find in the Loire Valley. Very large kitchen and living room. Centrally located and close to grocery stores, we spent a week at Christine's home and we would go back again without a question. Gardens and pool are fantastic.

Fantastic place for a family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

This is a really fantastic location for a family holiday. The accommodation and facilities are even better that the description, which cannot adequately describe the charm and character of this incredible old building and it's surroundings. Yet the fittings and equipment, particularly in the kitchen, are modern, comprehensive and cover all requirements - I have never seen so many different ways to make a cup of coffee!!!

Christine is a charming and welcoming hostess with a real determination to do all that she can to make your visit as enjoyable as possible, yet is never intrusive.

The swimming pool has everything that you could possible need, particularly for children.

The only possible way to improve this accommodation would be to add a toilet to the en-suite bathroom, but that is a minor niggle compared to the overall facilities.

Owner's Response: It's always very pleasant to read so kind words.... And really I make all it's possible to offer to my visitors a good stay in this so nice country. You understand certainly that I like the Loire Valley ... And my house too ! And as I live in a house in the inner courtyard, I do all that is possible to be so unobtrusive as possible, but present if necessary. For the question about the toilet in the en-suite bathroom, I thought to do that but it was not possible.... We can't make what we want in a so old house....

Great house

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful house with a great pool and large garden. We spent two very happy weeks here. There is plenty to see and do nearby and the children spent hours in the pool. The house is very comfortable and well appointed and Christine is lovely and extremely helpful. We hope to return soon.

La Grande Loge is the perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

As we drove down the beautiful tree-lined path approaching La Grande Loge, we were graciously greeted by the owner, Christine, a very warm, friendly and helpful host. The photos on the website do not adequately convey how lovely this property is-beautifully furnished house, fully equipped kitchen, magnificent grounds with roses in bloom perfect for dining outside near the pool. And all in a fantastic location in the Loire valley! We couldn't have asked fore more. Can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: C'est très agréable de pouvoir conseiller à des personnes enthousiastes, de visiter des lieux encore trop méconnus comme l'Abbaye Royale de Fontevraud, le château de Montsoreau et le très joli village de Candes Saint Martin.... Les voir revenir enchantés et demandeurs de nouvelles découvertes est un plaisir. Ne pas hésiter à demander a l'hôtesse des conseils de visites et des adresses de bons restaurants...

Perfect Retreat in the Loire Valley

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented La Grande Loge for a luxurious and peaceful retreat after a week of cycling through part of the beautiful Loire Valley. It was the perfect retreat. La Grande Loge is more beautiful than its pictures - excellent decor, well-appointed and high quality furnishings and appliances, and spotlessly clean. The garden is spacious and private. The location is excellent - close to all amenities and central to many tourist attractions, major towns and Tours. La Grande Loge is quiet and peaceful. Christine is the perfect hostess - delightful, charming, and helpful while respectful of her guests' privacy. She has stocked the manor with everything that guests need to feel comfortably at home. We absolutely enjoyed our week at La Grande Loge and would recommend it highly. Mille mercis Christine.

Owner's Response: Cette maison peut convenir aussi bien à une grande famille dont les enfants peuvent jouer dans le très grand jardin et la piscine privatisée pour eux, que pour un couple qui cherche calme et tranquillité... La proximité de nombreux châteaux est très appréciée et les hôtes partagent souvent leur temps entre les visites et le repos au calme et au soleil.
