Stayed here again, as part of the Le Calabash cooking class package. Laurence and her husband Noel are incredibly caring and make sure that your stay is perfect. YOu feel right at home. The chateau is absolutely lovely and comfortable, the rooms airy, light and tastefully decorated. It is only minutes walking from the village. Can't wait to return here with my family.

Room tip: all the rooms are beautiful! Can't go wrong.

I stayed here while doing a weeklong cookery course at Le Calabash... I had seen pictures but it didn't become real until we pulled into the gate and I laid eyes ona beautiful château.... It is as beautiful inside as it is outside...

My bedroom was nice and cozy, the bathroom very modern and the view was great... Each night as I laid in the very comfortable bed I couldn't believe I was sleeping in a château...

Laurence and Noël, the caretakers are so very nice and genuine.... The grounds are vast and wonderfully kept, and it is only s short walk from La Roche Posay. The only negative was leaving...

Just spent 3 nights at Chateau Valcreuse and it was a truly lovely experience.

Alexender and Caroline are the most wonderful hosts and as soon as we entered the chateau they made us feel very welcome and at home. The chateau is an absolutely beautiful building with fabulously tasteful furnishings and fittings - stylist but extremely comfortable and has such a relaxed atmosphere that you feel at home immediately!

They are charming hosts and immediately made us feel very welcome in their home and everything from the welcoming pot of tea to ensuring we were seated next to guests whom we could speak to in English and have a laugh with at dinner was wonderful. Dinner is a communal affair commencing with aperitifs in the lounge and then onto the lovely dining room (normally they eat outside but the weather was a bit on the cold side when we were there).Whilst the table d'hote menu and wine is a bit on the expensive side the dinner on both nights we ate there was amazing and well worth it - they try to create a country house atmosphere and do so very successfully. Breakfast is also superb with plenty of choice and different treats each morning and it was so special to sit on the terrace and enjoy the amazing views of the valley

When we were there all the guests were predominantly from Belgium and were all very welcoming and engaging we actually forgot we were in France!!

From the chateau its a short walk into La Roche Posey and our hosts are full of ideas as to how to enjoy the area - this is a vey special place so do go and enjoy!

We were not to know that our hearts were about to be lost to Caroline, Alexander, Florence and Arnaud and their magnificent home Chateau Valcreuse when we booked our April culinary adventure at Le Calabash through The International Kitchen. Our research to find an excellent cooking program gave a brief description of the accommodations - such an understatement! From our sumptuous room “Emotion”, and its fabulous ensuite bathroom, the view was spectacular with trees budding and flowers blooming. Every detail seemed to be designed to make us feel comfortable and appreciated. We enjoyed the carafes of mineral water from La Roche Posay and delicious handmade macaroons in our room, the amazing selection of teas and specialty Trappist beers in the lounge, and the enchanting company of the other guests and family in the beautiful sitting rooms. Poolside cocktails and a scrumptious welcome dinner even included a birthday surprise for me! Arrangements were made for us to visit the spa one afternoon, which would have been very difficult for us to manage on our own. From sun-up to turn-down our every need was anticipated and provided in a very generous and appealing way.

How amazing to have the luxury of having Caroline and Alexander as our hosts and as fellow students in the cooking program! Not only did we share incredible culinary adventures, we became special friends. We delighted in discovering the secrets of Chateau Valcreuse, seeing the results of their hard work and reveling in the dreams for their family and this marvelous place. If only we could have arranged to stay longer to enjoy more of the “chateau” life! I have tears when I look at our pictures and re-live memories that will always be treasured!

Room tip: All rooms are lovely. Ours faced the spectacular valley/river view.

I usually do not expected that in a B&B, but this little paradise appears to have a staff with a professional hospitality and restaurant background. The food, service and decor exceeded all expectations. Due to the local topography, the area has a micro-climate which is sunnier than the broader region, which worked out great for playing some golf on one of he several nearby golf courses. If you wonder how to get there, there's a direct bullet train connection (-2hrs) from CDG Paris Airport to the nearby Châtellerault. It's the perfect place to unplug from the grid for a couple of days!
