Very nice, clean large rooms. The room we stayed in was ensuite and had a couch, writing table, TV, & large windows to let in light & fresh air. In the morning we had one of the best breakfastes ever in a B&B. The B&B is just a short walk from the town center. We will stay there again when... More

One of the problems for a property with so many five-star, faultless reviews is that it creates a certain expectation. Sadly Maison Carre did not, for me, live up to these. Possibly this as much the fault of hyperbolic reviews as anything. Or maybe this is something of a 'Marmite' property - you may love it or hate it. Unfortunately... More

We stayed twice here for 6 nights in total. Our two rooms were both well-appointed. Hot water comes quickly and the wifi connection is excellent. The breakfast is seriously exceptional. And one gets a great welcome.

We spent two nights at Maison Carre and its a wonderful Chambres d'hotes, in an excellent location for exploring the Loire Valley - a must stay! Our room located on ground level with its own entrance was large, very clean, with a big bed (very firm mattress) and sitting area, beautiful antique furniture and a lovely bathroom. The room &...

This is the second time we have stayed here and, selfishly, are a tad reluctant to recommend it in case we can't get in next time! For us this is the very pinnacle of B&B in France (and we have stayed in literally hundreds on our cycling trips). The owner couldn't be more helpful, the bedrooms are vast and beautifully... More

A very good B & B French stile, with an excellent hostess. Good position, easy to locate ideal for the upper Loire and Cher valley Chateau. You are near the centre of Montrichard with shops and restaurants. Cross the road and walk 100 meters you are at the station with easy access Monday to Friday to Tours. If madame offers... More

We visited Maison Carre en route from the South of France as we wanted to visit some of the chateaux. It is superbly located only a short walk from the town centre and the river and many of the chateaux are within an easy drive. A bonus is the fact that you can park the car in the courtyard of...

What a treasure Maison Carre is. We spent a couple of frosty February days in the Loire Valley where Maison Carre is perfectly placed for visiting Chateaux and Vineyards alike. With its own enclosed court and parkland it is very peaceful yet it is a very short walk into the centre of Montrichard. Mme Filiozat is very welcoming and made... More

We arrived by train with our "grande valises" not realising the accommodation was about 300 metres away. The railway assistant tried to book us a taxi, none would come as too short a trip. The assistant then phoned Madame Evelyne who literally dropped everything and picked us up in her own car. We were staggered. Our delightful bedroom was upstairs... More

Madame Evelyne is the perfect host & she knows where to buy good & interesting wine. Breakfast is a magnificent feast-too much. We were the only English staying there, & as I have a little French I was bombarded with questions,& jokes, by the other French guests seated around the large( as the Yanks would say "community table") every morning....
