My husband and I, along with our daughter and her friend, recently stayed for 3 nights at La Maison de l'Argentier du Roy. We wish we could have stayed longer! What an amazing place. Philippe and Christine are rightfully proud of their beautiful property. The property is located within the original walls of the medieval town of Loche (which in itself is very charming) -- and the owners have painstakingly restored it to glory, by paying attention to every detail, most of which they hand-finished. The rooms are spacious and lovely. The gardens are beautiful, from the roses and boxwoods, down to the resident laying hens. Philippe is a true Renaissance man -- he can do everything. Christine is a wonderful hostess, and her breakfasts were delicious, and offered homemade fare from her own gardens. We loved it and cannot recommend it highly enough. We know you'll love it if you are lucky enough to visit.
