This was the first chambre d'hote I found in France eight years ago, and after several stays here and at about twenty five other very nice B&B's over the years, 'Les Bournais' is still my favorite! And Florence and Philippe are so warm and helpful. All the rooms are very charming. I love the breakfasts and dinners.

We had a terrific time at this B&B. Florence and Philippe were the perfect hosts. Our room was lovely, including a nice sitting area and mini-kitchen. Outside the courtyard had multiple tables and chairs where we sat in the evenings and had Chinon wine and French bread and cheese. It couldn't have been nicer. We had wifi in the courtyard... More

The location of this B&B was ideal for exploring the Loire Valley. The host and hostess, Florence and Philippe are such warm and friendly people. The room we stayed was very comfortable. We enjoyed a very nice and tasty dinner prepared by Florence during our stay.

Our first stop was at Giverny to see Monet's garden and stayed at a lovely B&B there (the subject of another review) and the lady there, Sandrine, recommended us to stay at Les Bournais to... More

We stayed here for five nights with two other couples. Florence and Philippe were so generous in sharing their home. It was more welcoming than any other bed and breakfast experience that we have had. But at the same time we felt we had the privacy of our own suite or could join others in the garden. Breakfast was delicious... More

The envoirenment is very calm and peaceful, and the owners Philip and Florence are absolutely charming...We were greeted with a very warm welcome and made to feel at home.

We stayed for two nights as part of a cycle tour of this lovely area. The genuine warmth and hospitality flowing through this establishment took our breath away. Philippe and Florence were kind welcoming hosts with a relaxed unobtrusive style. We have never stayed anywhere before that left us feeling almost humbled! On the second evening we returned late as... More

Les Bournais is great! Just outside l'Ile Bouchard in a quiet country setting, it is filled with charm and delight. Hosts Phil and Flo are welcoming, personable, and ever so helpful. Our room was very spacious, with a sleeping alcove, living area, and kitchen nook with fridge and microwave and dishes. The large bathroom even had heated towel racks! During... More
