We have visited Vouvary for 20 years and have always wanted to saty in a chateau. We had the most amazing time here. The approach to the house is gorgeous just back from the Loire 5 minutes walk from Vouvray, we entered huge gates and were met by the enchanting chateau - the gardens and grounds are beautiful with avenues of trees and red squirrells. The swimming pool is beautiful, peaceful and surrounded by lovely old walls and planting. The owners Didier and Sylvie were so warm and welcoming and went out of their way to make our stay relaxing and interesting. They recommended fabulous restaurants and invited us for aperitifs - my husband was enthralled by the history they gave and their sheer kindness. It was also in a superb position for visiting the Loire attractions and again our visit was enhanced by recommendations from Didier. The interior of the chateau is beautiful like stepping back to the French renaisance with modern comfort. Our room was superb, great en-suite huge bed and beautiful view of the garden. I will recommend to my friends that they must come here at least once in their lifetime as it is enchanting.
