Me and my girlfriend had a 4 night stay in the Chateau De Marcay and I must say we both had a magical few days. The Chateau itself is beautiful. We stayed in the annex and had a large double room with a terrace, it was very clean and the view from outside the terrace was stunning. We also stayed... More

Unfortunately only stayed the one night... a tour stop over... very impressive facility. Fantastic room.. plenty of room.. his and hers wash basins... and the only hotel we stayed in that had a bidet (if thats your thing). Superb service in the restaurant... lovely food.. great choice for breakfast. Chateau set in famulous area.

Many years ago I lived near Chinon and often stayed at the Chateau de Marcay . Just two brief memories of this elegant place where swallows dive over the pool at springtime. Memory 1 - being introduced to a self named ' Lord King ' who managed to con me into parting with the equivalent of 500 Euros after a... More

A great well maintained Chateau just outside Chinon. The overall experience was fine however it is not your usual hotel stay. The restaurant and bar staff were outstanding in looking after us however the reception people were very disappointing. The grounds are nice and the rooms good expect no showers. You did feel quite isolated staying here and unless you... More

Would have perferred a full shower rather than the hand held appliance without a curtain. This was a little uncomfortable for a senior with back problems. Have a couple of questions to articles in the park. What does the three symbols on the roof of the small structture in the pool area and what was the hole chained off nearer... More

Chateau de Marcay is a beautiful old building with a fascinating history. It tries to be a luxury hotel but falls short in a few areas particularly considering the room rates. Our room was small with worn carpeting and no shower in the bathroom, just a handheld showerhead in the tub. I was sitting in the tub holding the shower... More

The chateau is visually stunning when you finally see it after driving along the tree lined avenue. ROOM We stayed in the West Wing and the room was spacious and well appointed. The bathroom was reasonable but in need of a little work, there was only a hand held shower on the bath but no shower curtain so not easy... More

Our first stay in Chateau de Marcay was thirteen years ago and after repeat visits the standard of service, accommodation and food remains excellent. Thank you to all the staff. We hope the new owner does not initiate any changes which may have a negative effect on the Chayeau de Macay " experience"

Spent a night at this wonderful chateau recently and it more than met my idea of what elegant French countryside living must be like. The grounds are beautiful and the chateau has kept all of its charm and dignity while adding the comforts that we are used to. Unlike most chateaus, the Marcay had a small elevator to take you...

The Chateau de Marcay is set a few miles from Chinon. The public rooms are beautifully appointed, but our room was more modest and perhaps in need of attention (the knob for the bath faucet wasn't attached). We enjoyed the beautiful setting, and because it is located out of town, we decided to eat at the hotel. Although the chef... More
