We booked here as we cycled through the Loire Valley. Wow, amazing! This place is stunning to look at, the rooms, furnishings, everything was authentic. The restaurant was inside one of the caves. Lovely place to stop, very friendly owner. Well recommended.

We spent a night there. The owner is very friendly, helpful and knowledgable. We slept in a huge room with a big bathroom in a tower going back to the 15th century. The stair case is worth a visit. The breakfast was served in a "cave" mancarved in this troglodyte village (hundreds of them in the region)superb breakfast as well.... More

You won't find a warmer welcome or kinder, more helpful hosts than at the Petit Hureau. We stayed almost three weeks - couldn't tear ourselves away - in the Garden Room, which has the convenience of a small second bedroom between main bedroom and bathroom. For a short stay, you may prefer any of the more spacious three rooms in... More

After a long journey, leaving behind terrible accommodation, we were in the car at night, desperate for a place that night. We called one B&B to be told they were full. However, they suggested we call Le Petit Hureau. We could not have been happier. Beautiful everything. To add to all of this Christian goes way beyond the call of... More

If your planning to visit the Saumur area on the Loire, we would strongly recommend Le Petite Hureau! A place full of character with themed bedrooms - we stayed in the"Garden Room" with its own small balcony - with a beautiful courtyard garden and private parking. Our host was very friendly and helpful and a very good breakfast is served... More

This was the final night of our holiday and the whole experience of Le Petit Hureau was wonderful. We were the only guests staying so our accommodation was akin to having our very own fairy tale castle complete with stone spiral staircase. The rooms were very large, clean and comfortable. Christian made us feel very welcome and also provided us... More

This was our first sleepover on our Loire trip. The owner is a very friendly man who gets help from his daughters. The place looks like a little chateau, and the courtyard (where you have breakfast) is lively with chickens and two friendly dogs. The location of the b&b is just outside Saumur, and close to the Loire à Vélo... More

We visited Le Petit Hureau during the first week of September and absolutely loved it! Such a gorgeous unique place with lovely accomodating hosts. Thank you Christian and Sophie! - and to your very friendly dog (Babou?) for her enthusiastic welcome! The 15th century building is wonderful and full of character. We felt like we were in our very own... More

Excellent location, superb host, fantastic dinner option. Turned out to be our best dinner in France, the building is a 15th century renovation. Breakfast is served in a cave, locally called a troglodyte. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
