The Comte and Comtesse de Vanssay are the most delightful people and staying at their chateau was pure pleasure. My husband and I were tired after completing a five day bike trip in France, so relaxing in our spectacular room, walking through the garden with their dogs, and talking to their macaw was a most welcome form of rejuvenation.

Countess Barre is a wonderful hostess and advisor on places to see and experience in the Loire Valley, France. We were welcomed into the house to stay, we werewined and dined in traditional French aristocrat manner, invited to hear the history of the Chateau and the Barre family. A wonderful stay, should have been longer than one night.

We have discovered with the family one of the best aspect of France: It is about elegance, courtesy, comfort and exciting History. We received a very warm welcome and were accompanied by the Count and the Countess during all our stay with many special touches and explanations. Our kids were delighted and all of this contributed to make our stay... More

We stayed in the hotel in September 2014.We really liked it. It is old-school, has very nice rooms that breath the history of the place. We liked our hosts who were able to bring the atmosphere to its fullest impression. Overall it is really marvelous. Some downsides: old beds and showers, but both will be refurbished according to Marnie. One... More

Lovely and charming setting! It was a delight to enjoy the peaceful and beautiful environment and to marvel at the sophisticated interior decoration... We were overhelmed by the Comte and Comtesse's hospitality and warm welcome. Chateau de la Barre is a must!

Stop searching..if you want to stay in the Loire Valley you've found the place! The chateau is the elegant yet cozy home of the Comte and Comtesse de Vanssay. You will know them as Guy and Marnie and they will make you feel as though you are a part of their historical family for your entire stay. Marnie is a... More

All I can say is, definitely do the Grand Siecle Dinner. It was the highlight of our stay at the Chateau. The hosts here will go out of their way to help you. All in all, a wonderful (if expensive) addition to our time in the Loire.

Magic! Marnie & Guy insure each guest’s needs are met, including assisting in travel changes. Thoughtfulness resembles what one gets when you go to the home of dear friends or relatives. Amour et enthousiasme En ne secret sont demeurée!
