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

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
