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

We looked for a nice place to stay for visiting a button exposition in Briare and for a possibility to play golf too. We were very glad to be cordially welcomed by the lady of this beautifull antique country house and the big garden. It was a very pleasant stay with many good advises of the lady for dinner, playing... More

The Domaine itself is a nice cluster of buildings embedded in lovely surroundings -very close to the River Loire. There is a huge fantastic garden belonging to the guest house with access from the conservatory. Unfortunately the condition of the rooms is worn out, the furniture shabby. They need -even with respect to the ancient character of the building- restauration.... More

All the paintings were redone and finished on april, 14, 2012. You even saw that the works were on in the other part of the house....So, paintings are all new from now on. If you don't like the furniture style, why coming to my place ? All pictures on my web site were taken by myself and reflect the exact... More

We stayed there on our way back from Portugal to Germany and I have to say that the two nights we planned were far too short. It is a lovely place, decorated, run and maintained with great dedication and a great heart. Benedicte is an excellent host and she knows everything about the region and provides you with every information... More

The breakfast was good, but we missed the cheese and ham. Benedicte is very kind and takes good care of her guests. She... More

Domaine de la Thiau is even MORE beautiful in real life than it is on their website ~ I was deliciously and unexpectedly surprised. I was expecting something interesting, but it is lovelier than I imagined. The hostess, Benedicte was charming and treated us as both part of her family and cherished guests. The home itself was built in the... More

We stayed for four nights and found everything as advertised. Our hostess was not only delightful, but helpful, as well. Her command of the English language was excellent and extremely comforting. The breakfast area is beautiful and serene. It was a joy to share the time with her and her other visitors and observe her pets (a marvelous dog, many... More
