My husband and I returned last week from a nine night stay at this amazing chateau. We could not have picked a more perfect place! The chateau itself is lovely with beautiful, peaceful grounds to walk and a gorgeous terrace/pool area. Our hosts, Nathalie and her husband Philippe, were so very warm, welcoming, and helpful throughout our stay. Nathalie even... More

Stayed six nights in September as a base for visiting the towns and chateaux of the upper Loire. Fontenay is a picture perfect chateau enhanced with extensive grounds and vineyards. The large outdoor terrace overlooking the pool was the venue for the typically French breakfast as the weather was wonderful and we also had several evening picnics there rather than... More

Thank you Nathalie for making the start of our France holiday so relaxing. We drove from Paris CDG to the Loire and arrived quite late and jetlagged after a few flight delays. Nathalie and Choco her beautiful dog met us at the entrance to the chateau (which has a lovely round drive to greet you, and rolling green lawns, vines,... More

We have just had a fantastic two week stay in La Maison du Boulanger self catering gite on the Fontenay estate. The gite itself was comfortable, clean and well equipped with all mod cons. But the setting within the stunning grounds of Le Chateau Fontenay was what made the holiday for us. Our 4yr old and 1yr old loved the... More

We spent 7 nights at the Le Chateau de Fontenay, we really couldn't have asked for more from a b&b, perfect is the only way to describe it. Our room was great, we had a view over the front of the chateau from the room and a lovely view onto the Cher from the bathroom so had the best of... More

We had the most delightful hosts, Phillippe & Nathalie. The breakfast each morning was a delight. Very convivial and we got the feeling that if we asked Nathalie to bend over backwards for us she would. The surroundings were fantastic. The house is in an estate of forest and vines which is marvellous to walk or cycle in. There is... More

We stayed in the cottage called La Maison du Boulanger in the grounds of this absolutely beautiful chateau. It was great to have the privacy of the cottage and the use of the grounds. We particularly liked the long swimming pool and the use of bikes. We cycled to Chenonceau and to Amboise, largely off road, and daily to Blere... More

We had an absolutely wonderful 2 night stay at Le Chateau Fontenay. We were warmly welcomed by Nathalie, Philippe and 2 of their delightful children (young adults) -- since our boys were roughly the same age it was a good chance to practice both their English and our French. The entire family were incredible hosts, making the whole experience that... More

My husband, parents, and I loved Le Chateau de Fontenay! After the hustle and bustle of Paris, the Chateau was exactly the peaceful respite we sought. The Chateau itself is beautiful and surrounded by hills, woods, and a river that guests can explore. We took full advantage of the relaxing pool, and borrowed the Chateau's bicycles to ride over to... More

Chateau de Fontenay is a beautiful retreat from which to visit the Loire Valley. Our room, Cupidon, was large, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean, with attached private bathroom. The room has a view over the River Cher and also the front garden entrance. Nathalie was a delightful host, and nothing seemed too much trouble. The breakfast provided was just delicious.... More
