Travelling with two other couples staying 2 nights earlyJuly 2015 on our classic car tour. A very friendly welcome from John and Siebren who looked after us all extremely well. Wonderful bedrooms, first class breakfast, beautiful and tranquil surroundings. An excellent base for our visit to Vitre. Highly recommended.

I'm the family organizer of travels, accomodations, restaurants etc. And my wife is the critical and often cruel reviewer. Many years ago I from time to time was send down to the reception to ask for another room. I hated it. So nowadays I normally get my findings approved before I book. Not in this case, the Chateau des Tensnieres... More

This has been an experience worth waiting for. I had planned it for such a long time from photos that can never go far enough to capture the romantic essence of the chateau, inside and out, and the warmth and calm of the welcome that is given. Hermes, the labrador, is first to do the latter; John and Siebren follow.... More

If you're looking to hide away and enjoy peace with no fuss then this is for you. The owners are chilled to the point of being frozen. lol. There are no locks on any doors, front door, bedroom doors etc so you will never be locked out. Brilliant. Couple that with a bar in a turret on an honesty basis... More

I've visited the chateau 3 times & I love it more & more each time I go. If you're looking for 5 star luxury then book into a hotel but if you're looking for a friendly, clean, homely & peaceful place then this is definitely it. John & Siebren are the owners & they look after you so well that... More

We booked a superior suite in the chateau and were very much looking forward to it. However, when we arrived, we were shown to a double room with no explanation as to why until we were leaving. The owners had given someone else our room!!!! The chateau itself was in love.y grounds, but was very difficult to find. Lovely breakfast.... More

Chateau des Tesnieres is a remarkable place. It looks older, but was originally built in the 1860s. It's current owners, a Dutch couple, discovered it in a somewhat neglected state about 140 years later, and have been running it as a one-of-a-kind B&B since 2006, whilst continuing the extensive renovation work. And it must be something of a money pit... More

It is always a great pleasure to return to this bed and breakfast in Bretagne. The rooms are most comfortable with enormous bathrooms and superb views of the parc. The hosts are most welcoming and helpful and created really something special in this part of France. I loved reading in the large sittingroom downstairs. I can only recommand this place... More

We were very much looking forward to our three-day stay at the Chateau des Tesnieres in Brittany. How disappointing it was! We had travelled a long way, had been unable to go to the restaurant the host had recommended, as it was closed 45 minutes before it was supposed to (…), but were still anticipating a nice and comfortable stay...
