“A little piece of heaven”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

Me, my mom and my sister had the most amazing time in this amazing place. The owner, Elie, was one of the mosto touhgful and nice persons I've known through our trip through the Loire Valley, He welcomed us with a cup of coffee and hot chocolate, as a good friend who has been expecting us and gently asked if we wanted to have dinner (wich we declined since we had already eten). The chateau has all this classical atmosphere almost as you were in the XIX century, as for its furniture and amazing decoration. The garden is also very beautiful and well taken care. After a day driving I had a very relaxing tub bath and a very good night of sleep, in a big room with one single and one double bed. The next mornig, afetr breakfest (when we met his wife Anne, who was also very pleasent), he showed us around the property (it seems a wonderful place to host a wedding and has a cottage as the nuptial suite). Too bad we only stayed for one night, so I´m must definetly coming back with my husband, since it´s such a romantic place.

My husband and I LOVED the Chateau de Chambiers. The Crouans made us feel welcome and so comfortable. Monsieur (Elie) grows amazing vegetables and Madame (Anne) makes such fresh, healthy, appetizing foods, ranging from modern, international, and natural dishes to classic French ones. Home-made bread, yogurt, preserves. Delicious! We really felt like guests at a luxurious country estate, but there was no pretension--just elegance, charm, comfort, and the pleasures of nature and Anjou hospitality. We intend to reserve early for next summer.

Room Tip: Each room has its own character, so look at their website and choose according to your fancy. They...

Horrible host and never had rooms cleaned or garbage picked up for two days, not given enough towels, ignored when asked for more.
Water pressure horrible, ran out of water mid- shower. Cockroaches and bugs.
No WiFi as advertised. If looking for a charming French getaway, do not stay here. Very expensive, not worth it.

I just came from France after staying and attending a wedding at chateau de chambiers.

I don't know where to start.

The lady/ owner very rude, disrespectful, and not helpful...

There are no water pressure on the second floor if you want to take a shower. It takes you more than half an hour to take a shower as you cannot stabilise the water temperature. To take a shower is a nightmare!

While I was shaving the water suddenly stopped and I had to go to my wife's cousin's room to finish up...

When we talked to the lady about our problems in order to solve them, she did not care to listen and offer any help....

I do not understand how this place ended up earning a reward from tripadvisor last year when everything about this place is appalling....

I could have stayed at a nicer place than this chateau fir the same price or less.... So value for money is more than bad....

We've been to lot of places and things happen along the way but this was the worst....

Whatever I say or write in this review is not enough to express my terrible experience in thus place....

I wish I wouldn't have stayed in this place.....

As I told you at the time, we are very sorry that an unexpected plumbing problem arose during your stay. In response to your bringing this to our attention, we offered you xxx and you accepted this. The plumbing issue has of course been repaired. We regret that it affected your stay at our château.

I reached the Chateau by train from Paris in 1 1/2 hours plus a taxi ride.
For a history buff with a discrimating palate, this is heaven. I also found
the spaciousness of the grounds, the lovely classical music on the airwaves
in the chateau truly relaxing. This is a fabulous area near the Loire in
Anjou. They use only organic food, either home or locally grown. There are
bikes to use on the great bike routes available nearby. Anjou is peppered
with chateaux, abbeys, vineyards and of course the beautiful Loire.

We stayed with a number of friends (2 couples, 3 singles - average age 30, all well travelled and international) at Chateau Chambiers in late April 2010 as we attended a wedding in the region. Chateau Chambiers is beautifully located in the middle of the forest, very quiet surroundings, and the hostess worked hard for us to make our stay unforgettable. The chateau is genuinely decorated with antiques and each room has its own particular flair - refer to their website which accurately depicts their charm: we stayed in Caroline room, whilst our friend stayed in Bonne Maman and Camp Drap D'or.
A wonderful breakfast with a varied choice of homemade marmelade (all excellent!), honey, and bread/viennoiseries, ancient books (dating back 300 years) and a cosy salon/ billard room, walks in the forest, we really had the feeling we were at home. It was a very pleasant stay and many thanks again to Mr et Mme Crouan, who are dedicated to make everyone's stay unique. We especially loved the sheep-bush sculptures in the park in front of the chateau!
The only issue we had was finding the place without a navigation system!
We also highly recommend the restaurant 'Le Moulin des 4 Saisons' in La Fleche (but avoid the pizzeria on the main sq Henri 4!).
Many thanks again.
