The staff, the room, the landscape and the dinner are just awesome. After a long day driving we were happy to arrive to this quaint oasis. The room is updated with a beautiful bathroom. The bedding is crisp and the pillows are so soft. The staff is very attentive so are the owners. The food is A plus. Don't miss... More

Our room was spacious and elegant with a massive bathroom and the bed was luxuriously comfortable. The food in the dining room was excellent and we tried both the short and long menus during our stay. A power cut caused by the ferocious winds was managed with calm and aplomb by the owners who served breakfast in their own dining... More

Thank you Maria and Victor for another great stay albeit only two nights this time. This was third time in three years. The House is still fantastic and the service terrific. Jonathan, Eva and Sabine were doing a great job. The impeccable English (and German) of both Victor and Maria are so pleasant and useful. They really make you feel... More

We stayed for one night on our way from Millau to Normandy. Our room was the Pavillion which is an annexe in the garden. Newly converted with nice facilities and very quiet. Incidentally this room is equipped for wheelchair users, and there is a lift to the main building's ground floor. We didn't need to use these facilities, so you... More

We stayed at the Manoir de Contres from 6-22-2015 to 6-29-2015. It was a marvelous experience. This place has the old world charm combined with modern comfort. Our room was huge and beautiful and so was the bathroom. Food was excellent , very fresh and of high quality, both breakfasts( heavenly coffee) and dinners prepared by the owner/chef Victor, were...

We booked this place on Booking.com and saw the photo of the rooms. We were even asked if we wanted a ground floor room. When we got to this very impressive looking place, the owner told us, that they will never give the good rooms to Booking.com, and we got a small room in the attic for 144 euros a... More

We went to this Manoir for a romantic weekend and it was perfect ! Food was simple yet very good, the room was very comfortable (hadn't slept like that in some time) and the breakfast was very nice. Perfect for a relaxing weekend far from the city bustle. The whole place has a great atmosphere and since there are only... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights: 10th - 12th August 2014. Do not look any further if you require a quality, small, family-run hotel in the Loire Valley where the dining is the "unique selling point". Only time and distance holds us back from returning to this absolute gem of a hotel and especially the restaurant! We... More

There is no doubt that this is a lovely manoir - an oasis in a rural area. The rooms were spotlessly clean and in good decorative order. It was a wonderful relief to have a hot bath in a long tub, very relaxing. The Patron was very welcoming and preferred to speak in English- fair enough as his English was... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights when attending a friend's birthday celebrations at Chemery. It's a beautiful looking stately old home in the very quiet town of Contres. We had a wonderful stay. Maria and Victor looked after us very well. We had an enormous room with an equally enormous bathroom and large bath. The interior of... More
