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.

We were made to feel welcome from the start and it is obvious that our Hosts enjoy what they do, which... More

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

Thank you for your compliments on the great rooms and items to view even if our antique doors have no locks as you noticed. We feel sincerely sorry that you felt unwelcome in our home. Perhaps what you relate happened at a particularly stressful moment for us, nobody is perfect and we apologize! We are sincerely happy to meet our... More
