Maison Yvonne
Ranked #2 of 2 Parnay B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 3, 2011

If you are thinking of visiting the western Loire Valley area then you must book into Maison Yvonne. Not only is it an ideal base for visiting the many local chateaux and wine producers, but the accommodation is first class - full of rustic French charm, with the added advantage of a luxurious ensuite bathroom. Breakfast is excellent and Gavin & Jacqueline are ideal 'mine hosts', providing plentiful and most useful insights into the local attractions, restaurants and even weather forecasts! We had such a pleasant, restful and enjoyable 7 night stay.

We stayed for two nights b&b, and this place was just perfect, a unique and charming bedroom, a bathroom to die for, and a beatiful breakfast set out in the dining room for whenever you were ready, lovely people with loads of good advice about the locality. Would recommend it unhesitatingly to anybody.

We have stayed in a variety of accommodation over a 5 week tour of Europe and it is fair to say that we will look back on this place as the one to remember. The term 'bed & breakfast' does not do Maison Yvonne justice. The sheer size of the accommodation makes one feel as if they're right at home instantly. It is tastefully decorated, well appointed, clean and certainly comfortable. One could easily spend the majority of their time in the 7 head shower in a bathroom bigger than some hotel rooms! Our advice would be to take the option of eating in when staying there. Having your own private dining experience will certainly be a highlight of your stay. Gavin and Jacqueline provide an excellent service and should be commended for creating a place that we simply can't fault. The only thing we didn't like was how far it is from Australia!

The Caldwell family made our stay one of the most memorable we have experienced. Service and attention to detail were exemplary. The accommodation is spacious and unique and direct access to the garden and use of the swimming pool both add to the quality of the experience. Breakfast served in the garden is good but the dinners Gavin cooks which are served in the private dining room are absolutely superb. There is a choice of good quality local wines to enrich the dining experience.
Maison Yvonne is very close to Chinon and Saumur, both of which are well worth visiting.
The only thing we would have liked to improve future visits woul be a king or queen size bed.
We will be back!!
