We stayed here for 1 night in late August this year. Although the place looks very impressive and, at first glance, the room looked lovely, things started to fall apart after that. The room wasn't particularly well cleaned with a copious quantity of cobwebs when opening the curtains to look out of the window. The evening meal was an experience... More

Very friendly family and beautiful place to stay. Lovely surroundings and ideally situated in the Loire to visit other chateaux. Definately a place to come back and see how the family completed the restauration of the chateau.

There is no other place like the Chateau de Gizeux. It is unique. The bedrooms are luxurious but set in a building that is under renovation, renovation that will given the size of the place take years if not generations. That is the charm of the Gizeux. While staying there you feel you are part of the place, it's history,... More

Really lovely to wander round, very family friendly. Tour round Chateau was aimed at kids, which was fun. However, our tour guide had a badge on with a UK flag on it. I assumed this meant she spoke English. Not a word to me! When I informed her that my family didn't speak French, she fetched me a folder with... More

We stayed here for one night here before returning to the UK after a 2 week road trip across France and Spain and this certainly ended our holiday on a high note. We received a warm welcome from the family (and the two labs!) and were then ushered on the visit of the château as we were leaving early the... More

I recently took my parents on a week long trip throughout the Loire Valley staying at different Chateaus each night. Chateau Gizeux was a little out of the way but ABSOLUTELY worth the trip. The family was extremely welcoming and took the guests (there are only five guest rooms) on a personal tour of the family Chateau telling us stories... More

Nice castle to visit but DO NOT STAY HERE. It was extremely expensive for what was offered. The food was ridiculously expensive and terrible. The room had a horrible stench coming from the toilet that was very close to the bed which ensured we had a thoroughly sleepless night. Clearly this is a family business that is struggling and they... More

We stayed at the Chateau de Gizeux for 3 nights and found the whole experience superb. The Castle is kept in an excellent way and it is very nice to interact with the family. The dinner prepared by Stephanie was excellent and the apperitifs were lovely. If you are expecting 5 star luxury, marble bathroom suites and a bell boy... More

In the Loire valley, among many other castles we found this very personal, cozy bed and breakfast style castle. Huge rooms in old style but modern. Drinks and dinner at night. Breakfast and guided tour of the castle in the morning. It was only one other family staying at the same time as us. it was perfect for us with... More
