A superb place to stay. Spacious rooms and large garden area made this a perfect pet-friendly place to stop. As well as the Chambre D'Hotes there is also the option of Self-catering Gite accommodation if preferred for a longer stay Valentine, Benedicte's daughter, looked after us very well. We stayed only three nights on our way to the South of... More

An ideal country style, typically french hotel . The garden was delightful, Benedicte was the perfect hostess and the nearby town of Briare on the Loire and crisscrossed by canals was very pretty , with a good choice of places to dine. We liked it so much that we stayed an additional night.

We spent a lovely couple of days at this charming Chambre D'Hotes. Our host Benedicte was very welcoming and the rooms were charming. Breakfast was ample and made better by sharing with the peacocks. Overall a delightful place to stay and I would highly recommend this Chambre D'Hotes to others.

We had a short and yet a very lovely and welcoming stay at Domaine de La Thiau. Benedicte, the host, was cordial, well-informed about the area and very cordial. The rooms were clean, functional and nicely designed and the garden was breath taking. The outside of the place is a real heaven. The surrounding town is very beautiful - don't... More

We only visited for one night. Would have liked to have stayed longer. Beautiful home in a beautiful setting. Benedicte was a wonderful hostess. She accommodated our very late arrival and made us feel very welcome.

We only stayed a couple of nights but it was wonderful. The location is perfect for exploring the Loire valley - or for running early morning or evening - and the accommodation was just lovely. Such a beautiful setting and the hostess was extremely friendly and helpful. She cooked us a dinner on the first evening which was ideal as... More

The welcome was very friendly, and the place was run very efficiently. Full of character, clean, comfortable. The area was very pretty and interesting. We can recommend a trip to guedelon, a medieval castle in the making. The associated Saint-Fargeau Chateau is also very interesting, but the most interesting parts are not accessible unless you take a guided tour. We... More

Obviously loved by the friendly owner, Bernadette keeps the rooms beautifully clean and takes a pride in her business. The grounds are quiet, romantic and we enjoyed the short cycle rides along the river into Brier and Gien . The peacocks and the local wildlife were a bonus. Really enjoyed this and would definitely stay again.

Un grand merci a Bernadette pour toute son aide lors de mon arrivee au gite. Tres serviable et prete a rendre service ceci m'a touche et c'est ce personal touch qui fait parfois toute la difference. La propriete a tout son charactere et s'y arreter, meme un jour, est suffisant pour faire un leger retour dans le passe. J'ai aime... More

We stayed for three nights with another couple in September 2012 and had a wonderful time. The property is easy walking distance along the Loire towpath (under an hour each way at a fairly leisurely pace) from both Gien and Briare, both of which are worth a visit. The restaurants in Briare, particularly the fish restaurant just round the corner... More
