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

Staying in a Chateau owned by the family of a Count and Countess for 600 years sounded like a once in a lifetime experience: but now we've been there we would love to go again. From the moment we booked and received an email from Guy welcoming us and offering tips on our trip to the Chateau, we knew we... More

One would have to go a very long way to match the Chateau de la Barre vacation experience. Proprietors Guy and Marnie are committed to sharing all that is wonderful and beautiful about the Loire Valley and have extensive knowledge of the rich history and numerous amenities of the environs. They have thoughtfully and lovingly restored this historic property and... More

Staying here is like going back in time. This beautiful family owned chateau with original furnishings was a special four days for my wife and I. Guy and Marnie were gracious hosts, helpful with suggestions of places to visit along with maps and directions. Be sure to accept their invitation to dinner. The food and wine parings were perfect and... More

If you are in the Loire Valley this is the place to stay. The chateau is located in a beautiful country side about in hour and some minutes from Le Mans but much closer to Tours.. Marnie and Guy are the perfect hosts. They are an authority in the history of the region, so if you are in to history... More

First the Chateau: It is beautiful, rich with history and the rooms are exceptional like all the other reviewers said. I paid an entrance fee to see places that were less nice to see! All the rooms are spacious, beautiful and have Hermes toiletries. Going for a walk on the property is also definitely a pleasurable experience. You will not... More

Many reviews of a positive experience will often repeat the comments of others. I have such a wonderful memory of Chateau de la Barre that I hope I can leave a review that will want others to experience what I have, at this impressive Chateau and its gardens. It goes without saying that Comte & Comtesse de Vanssay (Guy &... More

This was our second week-long stay at Chateau de la Barre, the first being 3 years ago. We both travel here for business (pastry research for me, and car-related research for my husband). I could never recommend this chateau highly enough! Everything is perfection ... our hosts Marnie and Guy were so welcoming, generous with their time, kindness and chateau... More

Not only was our room at Chateau Barre the most amazing room we have ever stayed in, our stay at the Chateau was one of the most amazing experiences we have ever had. We started with a person tour and history lesson by the Count. After exploring the private gardens, the 600+ year old fortification walls, and the grounds, we... More

Chateau de La Barre provides an awesome experience into the past of France's aristocracy together with an admirable reception by the property's hosts. Don`t miss it! We stayed at the cottage - very well decorated with a complete kitchen - and in the castle, which is a bit intimidating because of so many antiques from the decoration. We got used... More
