Our first ever B&B in 45 years gite-ing. Due to an unacceptable gite outside Loches we needed to make a swift exit, and by chance using iPad found this haven in Saumur. This gorgeous 'Belle Epoque' chateau has three large elegant double-bed en suites rooms (we saw them all), and two 2-bedroom double suites - which we took as a family. Our suite, at the front, had a red/gold Chinese style bedroom, and a vast white bedroom complete with gold jacuzzi bath and perfect round tower sitting area. Our son's suite had two double bedded rooms and lovely bathroom. Everything was immaculate.
Breakfast was standard continental - tea/coffee, juice, yoghout, bread, butter, jams, pain au chocolate and croissant, served as early or late as you wished. One day we didnt even leave, but stayed by the pool.
Bruno - the owner - is charming and advised us on restaurants. Good recommendations.
The heated pool - 28deg during our visit in early June - was spotless.
Do go there. We will!
