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!

I was shocked to read the previous post on TA. My experience with hosts, Guy and Marnie, was completely different and they could not have been kinder or more welcoming. We enjoyed every minute of our three nights at the Chateau We were in the Suite Marin de Vanssay which was certainly the grandest room I've stayed in. Huge, filled... More

An amazing place to visit with great rooms and items to view. The problem is the hosts who do not seem to enjoy letting visitors into their home. After a reasonable welcome the forced charm gradually degraded over what was just a one-night stopover for us. No lock on your room was a little odd. The food and dinner was... More

What more to say. I went with my with for five nights in late July and we loved it. Each day was better than the previous. While its location can be a bit challenging for some of the day trips we took, the room, grounds, and most importantly the hosts made it an incredibly special and unique trip. Guy and... More

This place is a real gem. It is run by Guy and Marnie who offer a very personal service. The rooms are lovely, and although the house is packed with art and furnishings worthy of a museum, the place is very much alive and relaxed. The food was excellent, but was very special was the attention that Marnie gives to... More

My stay at Chateau de la Barre was absolutely wonderful. Guy and Marnie, the count and countess, were very warm and welcoming. My room was beautifully decorated in the style of the period, having most of the original furnishings, yet without being overly ornate. The bed was extremely comfortable and I had no problems sleeping. To add to all that... More
