We spent one night at the Manoir while exploring the Loire Valley and it was positively charming. Yes, the cramped lift is a little less than luxurious and the room furnishings were somewhat sparse, but on the whole, the property is perfectly charming and serene. If you're looking for five-star luxury, I'd probably skip this property, but it's great value for the lovely experience you get for the money.
We had pre-dinner drinks on the quiet terrace, which was incredibly relaxing, and then had a delicious dinner in the lovely (albeit small) dining room. Breakfast was also great, and we were joined by the Manoir dog (which, being a dog person, I loved). My advice would be to spend time on the grounds/terrace/in the sitting room, rather than in your actual room, as those places are much more relaxing and impressive.
Maria and Victor are also incredibly gracious hosts. I'd definitely recommend this place for a night or two stay in Loire.More
