Stayed for 2 nights on a trip to the Loire. Perfect little room, the hosts were great and could not have been more welcoming, and a great chance to practice speaking French over a glass of Vouvray. Room was quaint and perfectly formed, was a little cold and damp but in the summer a bit of welcome relief (you are... More

We stayed in the smaller suite. Both proprietors were very accommodating and very charming. The room was lovely; the gardens were lovely; and the family were equally as lovely. I would recommend that one be able to speak some French here. My French is not so good and we were able to communicate without problem. I highly recommend this hotel.

My husband, sister and I stayed here from 21 - 24 May 2014. A short drive from St. Pierre de Corps station where we picked up our car. Although we were early we were warmly welcomed by Jean Marie and Sylvie who couldn't be more helpful. An offer to book a restaurant for the night was taken up and we... More

We came directly to St Pierre Des Corps on the TGV from the airport in Paris after our overnight flight (two older sisters with one's 2 college age daughters). Vouvray and Les Sentinieres is just a short drive from the station. What a wonderful first stop for our visit to France! Jean Marie and Sylvie were so warm and welcoming... More

We had the absolute pleasure of staying at Les Sentinieres in April in the 'trogolodyte suite' which perfectly suited my family. The accommodation was beautifully presented, roomy and had everything we needed - including wonderful water pressure for the shower! Sylvie and Jean-Marie met us on arrival, showed us to the suite and even offered a glass of bubbly (juice... More

Les Sentinieres turned out to be even more charming than we expected and the longer we stayed the more we fell in love with every bit of it. The owners include a book in the room which tells the story in photos of their creation of these beautiful, charming hotel room spaces. it makes you appreciate so much the vision... More

What a little gem this place is! A wonderful welcome from such a kind, helpful host; beautiful surroundings in the lovely French vineyards of Vouvray and to top it all a fabulous breakfast in the pretty gardens in the morning. Great value for money and I highly recommend this place.

This is a truly unique experience, staying in a tastefully decorated limestone cave! Troglodyte dwellings like this, hewn out of the side of a cliff, are common in the Vouvray area. Hosts Jean-Marie and Sylvie are very personable and helpful. Jean-Marie brought sumptuous breakfasts to our room every morning, and was available with help whenever needed. He even drove us... More

Ran across their B&B site while trying to find a unique place to stay in this area of the Loire. I immediately wanted to stay in a cave no matter what, how fun! And was delighted to find it was highly rated on tripadvisor. This place did not disappoint. From the very beginning, they were friendly and accomodating. It was... More

My young daughter and I chose this B&B from the reviews on Trip Advisor, as an overnight between seeing the châteaux in the Loire Valley. I am so glad we did! The hosts were delightful, professional and very responsive -- everything from moving our car around to the (not obvious) parking and advising as to local restaurants to making up... More
