“Excellent”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

We only had the opportunity to stay with Dominique one night but it was great. The room is excellent. It has a large bed, dedicated separate shower, and restroom. Better yet, though not needed, is that the room has its own private entry. Breakfast was awesome. Since waking up at the Loire B&B was our first morning in France, Dominique provided us a great start to our vacation. Dominique will afford you as much privacy or company as you want. She was a tremendous help with directions to our next stop. Lastly, the location of the B&B is in close walking distance to the main area of Tours. Will allow you shop, eat, etc. within minutes.

I stayed at Loire Bed and Car in October for 4 nights and was so pleased I did! The guest area is spacious and exceptionally clean with a good degree of privacy. Breakfast was generous. Access to WiFi was available. Dominique is a wonderful hostess and I took the opportunity to have her escort me on private tours on 2 days. I highly recommend others to do so! The location is handy to the old town, restaurants, markets and main shopping streets. I felt safe to walk at night on my own to and from those areas. Tours is a great place to visit and is very central to the chateaux of the Loire Valley.

My husband, our 8 months baby and I spend 3 wonderful nights at this beautiful place.
The place is charming and cozy, very tastefully decorated. The room is big and comfortable and has all necessary facilities. You can feel that every small detail was thought off.
The location is perfect for visiting the Loir - short drive to all main attractions and the city itself is a nice place to visit. Lots of restaurants and cafes are in a short walking distance.
But above all is, Dominique, the owner. Dominique is a wonderful, charming woman (which also speaks good english..) that let us feel like home! She helped us planning our trip, gave us tips, map and recommended routes. She was caring and very helpful even when our son got ill - she even booked us an appointment to the doctor and offered to come with us as a translator ..
This place feels so good because Dominique is so great!
Loir bed and car was perfect and we highly recommend it!

What a lovely little place, perfectly positioned to see the best of Tours on foot.

Nothing was too much trouble for our hostess, Dominique. We were given a warm welcome and any questions answered, including a restaurant recommendation and booking which turned out to be spot on!

We'll definitely be back, perhaps for a little longer than one night next time...

A charming place done up with great taste and equally charming hosts, the comfort is
such that you just feel good ( there must be a good " Fung Sui " ! ) and do not want to go anywhere , specially on a sunny afternoon, even though the location is wonderful a stone through from where the action is in Tours, and in particular " les halles " central market where fabulous local food can be brought back for a pic nic in the garden . Can't wait to come back !

My 14-year old son and I booked a stay and 2-day tour with Dominique and were extremely pleased with the experience. Domnique was great about communicating with us prior to the trip in order to customize an itinerary that would meet our specific interests. Her selections were matched what we were looking for perfectly. We especially appreciated her flexibility as we switched some priorities for the second day that she was able to accommodate seamlessly.

The B and B itself is very nice. It is in a quiet part of the city with easy access to the historical center of Tours. There is a very pleasant courtyard for relaxation in the evening with direct access to the room. The accommodations are immaculate with nice extra touches such as the slippers in the bath room. There is also plenty of space beyond the bedroom with a separate den area. For those of you with kids, there is also wireless access so that they can remain connected! :-)

For anyone taking the train in from Paris, this service really can't be beat. I highly recommend Domonique and Loire Bed and Car!

This is a charming, beautifully appointed Bed and Breakfast that offers tailored personalised tours of Tours and the beautiful Loire Valley with its myriad of chateaux. You will be driven to your destinations of choice by your charming hostess Dominque. I selected a number of chateaux including Villandry, Azay-le-Rideau, the chateau where Edward VIII and Wallace Simpson spent time (Cande) and Sache where the Balzac wrote many of his works. The choice however is yours.

The B&B offers a lovely outdoor garden setting for that evening gin and tonic or glass of wine. Private entrance, separate shower and toilet, comfortable bed and separate sitting room with a television, Cd player and a selection of books to view. There are facillities for coffee in your room and there is a desk for your letter writing or journal entries.

Breakfast is served in a very nice separate dining area and was very good, unhurried, comfortable and served with excellent coffee. The B&B is within walking distance of countless resturants.

In the bathroom you are provided with plush towels and slippers for your tired feet at the end of the day. There is a hair dryer for your use and nice liquid soaps. This is a lovely establishment where to my mind nothing has been overlooked.
