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

My fiance and I stopped at Le Chateau de Fontenay during our recent European tour and we felt so lucky to have found this property, it is simply gorgeous and you really feel like you've arrived at a castle upon pulling into the drive. Nathalie is such a kind host, when one of the other guests mentioned she couldn't eat... More

My daughter and I had a lovely four night stay at this chateau. Nathalie is a very friendly host, very attentive and happy to chat and give you any information that she can about what to do and see, and if she doesn't know, she will find out for you. You felt very comfortable even though you are in her... More

We had a perfect stay at Chateau de Fontenay which while billed as a bed and breakfast is more like a stay in your own private chateau. Unlike many properties on line the property is even better than the photos would suggest! We felt more like we were sharing the property with friends as we had access to almost all... More

New Zealanders and Australians - if you are looking for accommodation in the Loire Valley you could do no better than stay in this wonderful castle on the outskirts of Blere. It was just fantastic. A beautiful home in the most gorgeous of settings and Nathalie and Phillipe were so willing to spend time talking with us about what their... More

We stayed for three nights at The Chateau de Fontenay in November 2013 with our two year old son and loved it. This mansion is marvellous and the hosts are a lovely family full of attention for their guests. If you are used to hotels, this will be a (positive) shock in terms of the kindness of the guests.

This lovely home was a perfect place to decompress from a two week vacation in France. We truly felt welcome and at home in this gorgeous chateau with its beautiful country setting. The location was very convenient to the delightful town of Blere, and easy to get to many of the chateaux we wanted to visit. Our hosts were very... More

We stayed two nights at the Chateau after ten days in Paris. It was like a decompression chamber. Nathalie and her family were more than gracious; they were kind. We learned so much about French culture and the area through easy conversations. The following reviews are all accurate. The Chateau and the property is grand, but this is first and... More
