“Beautiful place to stay in the Loire Valley”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

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.

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent and charming.

Thank you so much for this fantastic review.
We were very pleased to meet you in our house, for your stay in our medieval town of Loches so pretty, and out of time, with this incredible neighborhood of Chateaux de la Loire around.
We love to share our passion for this place in France.
And hope that your room ( Balzac'sLibrary ) gave you the feeling of being in an other century, as well for for daughter to feel like a Princess in the top of her towers..!
You were very nice family, it was a pleasure to know you and we're waiting for you , as you want, to continue the discovery of the Loire Valley beauty... "A bientot", as we say in french...Philippe & Christine

Staying here was a high point of our trip. The room was fabulous and the location couldn't have been better. Phillipe and Christine were incredibly helpful and interesting hosts. The property was artfully designed with beautiful furnishing and artwork. Loches was my favorite town in the area and was easily explored by foot from the Maison.

We just returned from a trip to France including Paris, Normandy, and the Loire Valley. Our stay at La Maison de l'Argentier du Roy was by far the best part of our vacation. Christine and Phillipe are both wonderful! You could not ask for better hosts. They made the enitre process so easy from making the reservation to departure. Their home is beautiful and affords every comfort. The history of the place is intriguing as well. Be sure to have Phillipe tell you about it. The breakfast Christine serves is wonderful and we enjoyed talking with her every morning. She and Phillipe are both so knowledgeable about the area and helpful with planning your time there. The location is perfect for touring the areas chateaux, wineries, and everything else the valley has to offer. If you are planning to visit the Loire Valley, we highly recommend La Maison. We can't wait to return!

We stayed at la maison on this pasta march and we had a lovely time. We were 6 people so we reserved 3 rooms and they were all lovely as if yo were staying in a small castle. In the mornings Christine made a delicious breakfast. We decided to stay here because of the reviews we read before we went to France and they were very helpful in making our decision. Also the location is excellent to visit the different chateau in the region.

We planned a stay in the Loire Valley after our first week in Paris to see the countryside, some of the best chateaus in France, and several wineries. We picked this B&B after reading Trip Advisor reviews of places we might stay and couldn't be happier with the hospitality afforded us by Christine and Phillip and the great experiences we had. It is indeed Number 1. After navigating a narrow road as advised by the TI in town and thinking we had missed it because the numbers were growing larger, we continued through the wall and found a small piece of heaven. We were shown by Christine to the Balzac Room with the wonderful modern shower in the turret. It was perfect. Immaculate with a view, storage, and all the conveniences we needed. Breakfasts were as mentioned in these reviews, generous, diverse, and delicious (homemade jam is wonderful). Christine helped us with advice on restaurants and sights to see. Loches is a great base to explore from. We were there for 4 nights and had plenty to occupy us. The town itself is an attraction. There are several good restaurants at various price points, plenty of shops, and the unforgettable experience of living in a real Medieval town that is still going strong. I must admit that we were somewhat dubious about what lay before us when we arrived because shortly before leaving on our trip to France, my wife suffered a severe sprain to her ankle. She had to wear a foot brace boot which made walking tough on the old cobblestones around town. Even so, our experiences here were the best of our trip. Lots of that is due to the friendliness and hospitality of Christine who made sure we had an ice bag every evening for my wife's ankle and helped us find some great wine caves and chateaus. The many reviews that guided us here all attest to this being a special find. We certainly agree.

A big thank you for this dream review on Tripadvisor, it was very kind from you to take on your free time to write it;
We apreciate a lot, anytime, to read our guests saying how is our fabulous location in the Loire Valley, and about Loches, our gem still hidden in this Royal Historic Valley.
We are very pleased if you enjoyed your stay in our home.
We have here,still plenty of history to make you discover around us, our "Touraine", the "garden of France" with its crowd of Royal Casttles, gardens and great fresh products from the fields around .
We shall be honored to meet you again, you always will be welcome in our house ...Philippe & Christine

It is hard to know what to say about this B & B because words cannot do justice to it. La Maison certainly lives up to its reputation. It is beautiful, historic, reasonably priced and with a perfect view of the chateau. Philippe and Christine are the ultimate hosts. They rightly take pride in the property that they have immacutely renovated. They are so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfasts were delicious and generous (Christine makes the best boiled eggs!), and we particularly loved the animated discussions. Philippe should be an actor! This really is the best place to stay in France and we will definitely be back.

Absolutely, hands down, the best place we stayed! Beautiful, comfortable, amazing location, fantastic hosts (including departing bottle of Loire Valley wine), extremely affordable and with a story behind it. Just what you're after in the Loire.
