As soon as you arrive you instantly feel relaxed and at home. Charlotte and Jerome are the best hosts I have come across, nothing is ever to much trouble and they have thought of everything. The location is beautiful and peaceful and the accomodation outstanding. As the mother of two small children the biggest bonus for us was that we... More

Amazing stay in fantastic surroundings. It is truly inspirational what Charlotte and Jerome have done with this place. Enough reading of reviews, I urge you to book this place! Also make sure you try the cuisine, and obviously the huge selection of local wines.... No reason to eat elsewhere!

This chateau is a very special place with very special people as hosts, Charlotte and Jerome. When you open your door in the morning for breakfast and look out at your surroundings...it is breathtakingly beautiful. I am a very picky eater, and the dinners and the wine were outstanding, as well as the dining experience itself. It is centrally located... More

We had such a great time two years ago when we brought our grandchildren that we brought 10 friends this time to experience the wonderful hospitality of Charlotte and Jerome. As travelling foodies, our stay couldn't have been nicer or more accomodating. We were able to visi t a goat cheese farm, two vineyards, have a picnic lunch in one... More

We had an absolutely delightful stay at the Loire Valley Retreat and our only criticism is of ourselves - we wished we'd stayed longer! Upon arrival we were promptly greeted by our hosts, Jerome and Charlotte, and shown to our generously proportioned room, a shared living area and breakfast room and the grounds around the house. The chateau has a... More

This was our second stay here and we loved it just as much (if not more) than last time. We stayed in the "La Tour" accommodation which had a huge bedroom for us, a smaller one for our 21 month old and downstairs an open plan kitchen / lounge. The accommodation was to an excellent standard. We opted to eat... More

Excellent stay. Kids centre. We loved being there. One of the places where a warm atmosphere is to have children. Your children and yourself can relax. Very nice. The combination of welcome, rooms, food and wine make it one of our favorites places to stay.

An exceptional stay, with a lovely family. This stay was very comfortable and the food was excellent. Our host provided a welcome that was more akin to staying with family and friends. The Chateau is very comfortable and we stayed in the 2 person boulangerie suite which provided UK television, a very comfortable bed and modern bathroom. I have no... More

This was our first holiday with a baby in tow (7 months old) and we were slightly worried about how it would go. We needn't have been! Charlotte & Jerome had thought of everything: from the box of toys left in the room to the home cooked baby food every evening. For the grown ups it was also great. The... More

We found the Loire Valley Retreat on a website advertising family friendly locations. It looked beautiful and just what we were looking for, and on our arrival we were certainly not disappointed. In fact the beauty of the chateau and its location surpassed all our expectations. The chateau itself is stunning and the rooms are tastefully and thoughtfully furnished. The... More
