Great rural location, stunning looking chateau which looks magnificent in the French sunshine. Very tasteful rooms but also extremely practical. Very child friendly in terms of equipment available (high chairs, sterilisers, play mats/ bean bags, numerous toys to name just a few) and in terms of understanding of babies and children and what they need/do! Charlotte & Jerome are both... More

We spent ten days at chateau chargé in late May and early June. We have a one year old and this really was the perfect holiday location. The apartments are beautifully finished and give you everything you need for your own space. This really helps if you have a demanding little one! Allied to this is the owners, Charlotte and...

Just had a great 3 day stay here. Isolated converted chateau/farm. Stayed in Vigneron room which was to a very high standard. We just stayed as a couple but it would be the perfect place if you had a young family. Jerone and Charlotte are superb hosts and booked us a brilliant wine tour with Alain. For the price -... More

The Loire Valley Retreat was a truly amazing place to stay, and we want to go back every year. We stayed for 4 nights with our almost 1 year old daughter. We stayed in the La Tour apartment and it was perfect. The accommodations were incredible - very comfortable bed, large bathroom, great living room, kitchen, play area and separate... More

We stayed at this beautiful chateau with our friends and shared a cottage that was more than spacious. We had our own bedrooms with large baths, a kitchen,dining, and living room. The common room across the courtyard is large and houses the wifi, a sitting area, tables for our daily breakfasts and shelves stocked with reasonably priced local wines for... More

This was the second time we stayed at Loire Valley Retreat and this time they had upgraded the rooms to include a full kitchen and living room. We had 2 spacious bedrooms and bathrooms which the kids especially enjoyed. There was also a new play room added for all guests that my kids really enjoyed when we weren't ready to... More

We are expats living in France for a few years and have done a good deal of traveling around the country. This was by far the best place we've stayed with our family. The other reviews are accurate in their praise! It was a beautiful, relaxing long weekend in a beautiful setting. We have three kids - ages 7, 4... More

We were referred to Loire Valley Retreat as a 'must do' when our family was in France and I cannot express how impressed we were with everything! It was beyond our expectations. We have 2 small children and it is really important that we are in a clean, safe environment with things to do so they don't go crazy. Jerome... More

We have just spent Easter in this wonderful place with our two children, 5 and 2. A more relaxing place is hard to find than the Loire Valley Retreat, particularly for parents. This is our third visit in 5 years which says it all. The accommodation has been so well thought out for families, with enough space to feel like... More

We stayed at Loire Valley Retreat in August 2014 with our two young daughters and can tell everyone reading this that the wonderful reviews written about this location are justified. We stayed in Le Vigneron, which is the accommodation on one side of the actual Chateau building. Our daughters adored staying in an "actual chateau"! Very atmospheric and spacious, steeped... More
