We were looking for some accommodation close to Puy Du Fou. What a find ! Superb guest house that is steeped in history. Laurent & Aurelia made us feel really welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We had pre-booked dinner for our first evening. A fantastic four courses of real home cooked food. Local ingredients and many from the... More

Stayed here in autumn & can't wait to go back. A lovely old Manoir with extremely friendly hosts. Had dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it. Laurent joined us for pre dinner drink and was very informative of the local area. Room was spacious, comfortable with antique furniture. Best shower of any I have come across. Breakfast was splendid. fresh juice, croissants,... More

It is not easy to find because neither the signposts nor the house map provided are very accurate ! But worth persisting. The Manoir is impressive as is the outlook. Rooms are clean and comfortable and our room had one of the best showers i have met in France ! The highlight for us ( three ) was the dinner.... More

Impressive building from the 14 hundreds, inside and out. Nice little pool. Our hosts were very welcoming also. Stayed just on night, but ideal for exploring the area around Chantonnay. WiFi is a bit hit and miss, mainly due to the 6ft thick walls, but its a small inconvenience. Would recommend.

Located 10 minutes drive from Chantonnay is this beautiful manor. As mentioned by everyone Laurent and Aurelia are the best of hosts. Breakfast is a feast set for kings, sadly we didn't get the chance for 4 course dinner as our stay was primarily for a wedding and we were addicted to French cheese and charcuterie. The pool is amazing,... More

If your after peace and tranquillity as we were this is the place for you. Superb on every level. We spent a week here and would have happily stayed for another. The owners Laurent and his Wife Aurelia we're the perfect hosts. They couldn't do enough for us. They we're so attentive. We stayed on a bed and breakfast arrangement,... More

Beautiful manoir steeped in history run charmingly by the hereditary owners rooms comfortable clean and simple in a grand spirit if that's not a paradox. Clearly if you insist on Relais & Chateau style and service this is not the place for you but if you want a genuine welcome and be plugged into the community where you are staying... More

This is a very delightful Manor near Chantonnay. Its been in the same family since 1644 and even though it is very old, the rooms are just so beautifully decorated, it is very comfortable and exceptionally comfortable. Laurant and Aurelia are the most wonderful friendly couple and make you feel like a family member. Well worth a visit.

This manor house has been in the same family for 12 generations and is one of the most pleasant places we have stayed in. We were made very welcome by Laurent and his wife, had a delightful room overlooking the grounds and enjoyed a delicious meal served by Laurent and cooked by his wife. Pre-dinner drinks for all guests were... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Booked late and only the standard rooms were available. These were still very comfortable but therefore cannot comment on the 4 poster rooms. Meals are cooked by Laurent's wife. It is a set menu and you do not know what is on the menu until the evening. Depending how many guests are eating you all may... More
