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

The Loire Valley Retreat and Jerome and Charlotte made our first family holiday a complete success! From beautifully designed accommodation set in a historic chateau to the perfect hosts who helped organise our stay and made us feel welcome with their table d'hote evening and family barbeque. (Our little girl preferred the other residents – the chickens, goat and donkey).... More

I think it has all been said before about the quality of this place and the service provided by Jerome and Charlotte. As we were a group of 8 and the only ones there during the time we stayed, they put on a 4 course dinner for us at a very reasonable price and selected wines to accompany the courses.... More

We stayed here in early September after a recommendation from a friend who has stayed here several times. There are so many positive reviews about this place so I'll just mention the points that we thought were particularly great: *Charlotte, Jerome & family - great hosts. They have thought of everything to create a lovely, relaxing holiday from the peaceful... More

Great visit to Chinon area! My wife, daughter and I stayed for 4 nights at the Boulangerie guest room. It was very spacious and modern with equipped kitchen and lovely bedrooms. Charlotte and Jerome were wonderful hosts.....made us feel very much at home. They assisted with day trips, organized wine tours and arranged for bike rentals. A highlight was the... More
