5-Day Private Tour around Seine Valley and the Loire Valley

Two certified guides take you around the Seine Valley and the Loire Valley, which are the Kings' Valleys. Both French and American, these two guides have been guiding for years and know their regions perfectly. Kevin, in Paris, will tell you all about Classicism, while Sylvain, in the Loire Valley, focuses on Renaissance... and wine of course!

An ideal place to enjoy the Loire region while en route to the south of France. Beautiful place for those that enjoy the authenticity, from the breakfast served in porcelain to the wallpapers made the oldfashioned way. Our children loved “our” castle with its animals and large garden even more than the well known ones we visited. Our small apartment extisted of two separate bedrooms, ideal for a family. Thanks Isaure for the perfect stay!

You approach the small chateau along a short track and park under the trees, next to chickens and goats. The buildings are distributed on three sides of a rectangle, the open end looking out into the estate. The main house occupies the enclosed side, other buildings, formerly agricultural (piggeries, stables etc) are distributed in the wings and now a tea room, shop, etc. The chateau is surrounded by parkland. The main building was carefully restored in a renaissance style in the nineteenth century, using material collected through architectural recycling. The rooms are a cabinet of curiosities, of extraordinary interest. Sticking in my mind are a medieval carved door at the entrance to the tiny chapel, the prie-dieus at the foot of the altar (which fold and convert into armchairs - why?) and a small Dutch genre painting showing a priest rebuking a family eating meat on a Friday, as well as a former scientific resident's study. Visiting on a slow day, we were given a personal tour by a young man who was knowledgable and loved his subject as much as we enjoyed what he had to say. He drew a vivid picture of the house of a French country gentleman. You can stay in the chateau - the bedrooms are upstairs. I would really like to do that one day. In lieu of that this year, I bought a bottle of the chateau wine to bring home, and I intend to enjoy it later this year in the winter and remember the warmth of the sunshine in the Loire valley in summer and the warmth with which our guide surrounded our visit. We left to the sound of a piano playing ragtime, being belted out with gusto by a second guide. The happy relationship between the two young men in the relaxed context of the chateau will be an abiding memory.

We visited as a group with small children who loved visiting the beautiful parkland, meeting the animals and seeing inside this beautiful family owned tiny chateau. They particularly enjoyed the natural Coca Cola offered as a refreshment and hanging out in the hammock! A lovely atmosphere and a fantastic welcome!

A smaller attraction very close to Cheverny, worth a visit if you are in the area. I booked a group of 18 in for a picnic lunch which was available in an open sided barn before a tour of the ground floor of the chateau at 14 euros a head for an interesting mix of terrines, goats cheese, bread, crisps and a soft drink. Only aggravation was the web-site email link did not work and I contacted the owner through Facebook.
