We were so looking forward to our overnight stay at a chateau and so decided to splurge here. We had a great bottle of champagne and a amazing Chardonnay. There was no dinner here so we organised nibbles and our wine. We were given plastics cups and paper plates. We were absolutely amazed at this treatment as the accom was... More

This is an unusual hotel in that it is a privately owned home. The owners, Comte and Comtesse de Vanssay, are both gracious and welcoming to their home. The breakfasts are superb , and the food is enhanced by the presence of the other guests and their company in what is a truly international experience. The Comtesses goes out of... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We very much enjoyed meeting you, as did our other guests, who specifically mentioned having really appreciated your company during the long breakfasts and the Grand Siècle dinner in our XVIIth century dining hall.

Had a perfect two days at the Chateau!

The Grand Siècle Dinner is not to be missed. Marnie went out of her way to design an itinerary for our... More

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. We... More

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!
