Staying at Le Chataigner for 4 nights, as a base to explore the Loire valley Chateau in the area, was a wonderful experience. The owners, Odile & Jean Joseph were fabulous hosts and looked after us very well, giving us advice on places to visit, restaurants to eat at and generally making us feel at home. The room we had...

Big mistake we were there for only 1 night, We should have been there for at least two nights to enjoy the location and the hospitality. Wonderful welcome from M Mme into their beautiful home. Great charm, great calm, great welcome. do not forget the Summer Kitchen We will be back, sans enfants Bien sur

Our family stopped here for two nights on our way up to Calais after three weeks in France. Our boys (4 and 7) immediately fell in love with the grounds (which include a climbing frame and a tree house) and we all loved our beautiful room which was spotless and with a very effective shower (which we all needed after...

This was a perfect place to start our holiday. Very picturesque setting within a huge and beautiful garden - with a treehouse and trampoline. Lots of space for the children to run around after being in the car. Great location for exploring the Loire valley and all the Chateaux. Very hospitable and welcoming owners - who gave us tips on...

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for our first night in France! Pete and I arrived pretty shattered, having ridden on the motorbike from Caen, and were in need of somewhere to rest our weary bones. le Chataignier, with our wonderful, genuine and friendly hosts, did the trick beautifully. The double room was spacious and cool;... More

My wife and I stayed here on a Saturday night on our way back to the ferry. We arrived later than recommended in the literature, however, with a swift phone call to Odile, we were reassured that we would welcome at whatever time we arrived. A more welcoming and accommodating couple you will struggle to find running such a well... More

This B&B is in a beautiful rural location but close to Chinon (well worth a visit). For families, the accomodation is ideal: spacious with plenty of room but private as well - just beware the sloping ceiling in one of the bedrooms! Odile and Joseph were very cordial hosts and English-speaking Odile was very helpful in terms of where to... More

Wonderful B&B, beautiful garden, first class service. A charming retreat and friendly hosts. A brilliant treehouse in the garden for children to explore. My only complaint, a soft mattress, but otherwise a lovely place.

We had a wonderful 2-night stay here as part of our one week trip to France in April 2009. The B&B is about a 10 to 15-minute drive, mainly on narrow country (though paved) roads, from Chinon in the Loire Valley. It's a couple minutes south of the Marcay chateau-hotel. There's more or less only one main road from Chinon... More
