We love Loire Valley Retreat, having just returned from our third stay there. It is a perfect place for a family holiday. The kids (aged 5 and 3) loved playing outside in the courtyard with the toys, on the lovely slides and sandpits and with Jerome and Charlotte's charming children. As parents we love the beautiful chateau and the surroundings,... More

We had an absolutely fantastic stay here for one week in July 2016. The photos and website don't do this place justice. It's a beautiful property situated in a very lovely setting. We stayed in the Boulangerie Gite. The Gite is bright, clean, modern and very comfortable. The breakfast is an elaborate spread with fresh bread and croissants, eggs, meat,... More

I stayed here with my wife, 11-month old son and mother-in-law for a long weekend in June. The welcome was friendly, the accommodation was spacious, modern and clean, and the setting - aside a French chateau - was incredible. For children, there is a play room, a pool and an outdoor play area. For adults, there is a wine cave!... More

We had an amazing stay at the Loire Valley Retreat last month (June 2016). The accommodation was immaculate - very well kept, spacious and had everything you need to be fully self-contained. The property itself is a beautiful manor that has been restored so it was a very unique experience and has views over the rolling French countryside. It's a... More

We had a brilliant stay at Chateau du charge last year (our 3rd visit) and although it has taken me a long time to write the review I Am finding that, whilst looking for places to visit this year (this place of course being booked up well in advance) , nothing compares to the holiday you will find here.

Charlotte and Jerome were wonderful hosts. The property is stunning and very well located. We stayed in the Boulangerie and it was perfect for our family of 5. The interior is beautiful with 14th century exposed beams, old fireplace for the bakery that supported the hamlet and two magnificent bathrooms. Our children loved walking around the fields and seeing the... More

We are a family of 5 and had a wonderful stay in the Boulangerie room. The accommodations were perfect but what made this stay special was the warm hospitality. We felt at home as the children ran around the large field, played on the swing set and watched the animals out back. On rainy days, there is a large play... More

We have been visiting LVR since they first opened for business, this is our 8th visit, it is so beautiful and the surrounding countryside is so quiet and relaxing, Charlotte & Jerome are the most lovely couple, long may they continue......local towns and historic attractions are with 20-30 minutes drive of this adorable Chateau and its location.

We stayed in the l'Ecurie gite for a week in mid-May with our two young boys (1 and 3). This was so much more than just a place to stay while exploring the Loire Valley. It was an integral part of why our week-long holiday was so splendid. Words can't describe what a wonderful place this is for families with... More

We stayed in Vigneron part of the main house, which had lots of character and huge rooms. Plenty to keep children entertained outside, and a large play barn perfect for the early part of the day. Charlotte and Jerome are great hosts, helpful and knowledgeable leaving you with privacy to enjoy your break.
