Fabulous location and exceptionally well looked after. We stayed in the troglodyte cave rooms which were perfect in every way- particularly being a little cooler in hot weather. The only negative was that the pool was out of action for the duration of our stay but we were directed to a pool at another local chateau which was equally lovely just not quite so convenient. We did, however appreciate the gesture. Breakfast was always a delight and requirements for gluten free were met without any fuss which was a refreshing change. Wonderful homemade jams were also enjoyed by all of us.

Outside of Amboise, the Chateau has been beautifully restored by the owners. Free parking, beautiful gardens and pool which all overlook the valley. A very cool place! Our room was a quaint cottage (pictured) that was high quality with a great bathroom.

The friendly owners gave helpful suggestions for site-seeing and dinners. They also served a delicious French breakfast.

This is the second time that we have stayed at charming Chateau de Nazelles. The lovely chateau dates back to the 15th century and it sits on a large hillside property with pretty views and landscaped areas that provide several spots where you can sit and relax. The Summer Kitchen is a wonderful amenity, providing dishes, cutlery, glassware, utensils and even a dishwasher. Right beside it is an outdoor eating area with a nice view. The pool is cut into the cliff and is a fun place to swim. Since our last time there, an outdoor cave room has been added with a ping-pong table, which we enjoyed using. In rainy weather, we would have used the Billiards Room. But the weather was too nice to stay inside.

The first time we went to Chateau de Nazelles we were with another couple. This time we brought our 14 year old granddaughter and stayed for four nights. Both times, we stayed in their unique Troglodyte Rooms, which was a great experience, especially on hot days, because of the natural air-conditioning from the rooms which are carved out of the hillside. Suite Maja & Suite Mathilda have an adjoining inner door, which is nice if you are traveling with someone. But, it can be locked, too. Both rooms have sitting areas, roomy & modern bathrooms and comfy large beds. Tea & Coffee can be made in the rooms, should you so desire. The descriptions & photos of all of the rooms on the website are very accurate. At the moment there is also a sumptuous Honey-Moon Suite being built on the hill above the chateau. It looks like it will be fantastic. (~PackAndGoMama)

Breakfast is served at several tables in the beautiful, large Dining Room. Our first morning was our anniversary and the owner, Veronique Fructus, put a lovely, large, fresh flower arrangement on our breakfast table. That, certainly, provided a very special beginning for our anniversary. The breakfasts are large and have quite a variety of offerings: juice, fresh fruit, fresh local cheeses, meats, yogurt, breads & jams/honey, as well as boiled eggs precisely cooked to order, tea and several types of coffee. Breakfast is served at your convenience, The very congenial Veronique stops by every table to help with sight-seeing, restaurant & activity ideas, as well as with any reservations that you might need. She wants to make sure that you have the best time possible in the Loire Valley. We were grateful that she managed to reserve a Hot-Air Balloon outing that was a big hit with us and our granddaughter. Veronique also suggested that she make a reservation for us at the Michelin-rated Chateau du Pray for our anniversary dinner. Dining on the Chateau du Pray terrace on a perfect June evening was a real treat. There are several wonderfully different restaurants in Amboise or nearby that she can steer you towards. Her ideas are always spot-on.

We adore staying at Chateau de Nazelles and we can't say enough about Veronique Fructus. She is the consummate hostess -- friendly, cheerful, concerned, helpful & fluent in English, She runs an excellent B&B. We will stay there any time that we visit France and we definitely recommend that you stay at Chateau de Nazelles, too!

We liked our stay at Chateau Nazelles a lot. A charming place with friendly hosts, nice breakfast and a unique pool which helped us to cope with the heat. We will come back. Thanks also to Piedro to help us set up the BBQ near the self catering summer kitchen

We had a fantastic stay at this wonderful property. The location is great, quiet yet close enough to Amboise. The property and grounds are stunning - beautifully restored to a very high standard, and we loved the pool! Veronique is incredibly helpful and knowledgeable of the local area - she was always ready to offer advice, maps, help with bookings - which really added to our enjoyment of the local areas (we never had a dud!). We would strongly recommend.
