VRBO Bear stayed here:

Choose La Noue for a true cultural experience. This is not your average “vacation rental” and nothing like a hotel stay.

La Noue is a 16th century chateau with a rich history tucked away in the French countryside. Currently, it’s owned by the same family since the 1830s. While you will probably stay in the updated apartment, be sure to ask the owner for a full tour. You’ll find many rooms, hallways, staircases and even its own chapel. Tucked away in the French countryside, you can easily drive to the large chateaux in the Loire Valley, including Chambord and Chenonceau.

It’s perfectly relaxing for couple’s getaway but also suitable for families with children. There are plenty of toys, rooms with double beds and a great lawn for running around. The renovated ballrooms and chapel make it a good choice for special events and weddings.

There’s a nice flat screen TV with DVDs to enjoy a comfortable living room with a large fireplace. The bathrooms are updated and the shower pressure is great! The laundry machine is available to you, making it easier to pack light.

Stay here for a vacation rich in history but with the convenience, space and privacy of any home.

I want to thank Christine and her brother for hosting me in their ancestral home. I loved the yummy jam from the region and the bread and biscuits were a nice touch!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Born and raised on an island in the Basque Country in the south of France, with summers at La Noue, I have spent my adult life in the US. I have worked as a Travel Counselor, an Operations Manager for an Incentive house, and today still love planning trips (as an Independant Contractor with a Travel Agency) while managing and spending (again) my summer months at La Noue, renewing my ties with my family Home and sharing my experience with guests, family and friends.

Why the Owner Chose Tours:
It was 11 years ago that I chose to take over the ancestral family property and renovate it, with in mind to share with guests from all over the world my incredible memories of 'Hide-and-Seek' games throughout the hallways and unending closets of La Noue, walks in the woods with our grandmother hoping to catch a glimpse of a deer or a fox, pick blackberries in the Summer and walnuts fallen from the trees in the Fall. Of course we knew the major Chateaux as well, choosing which to visit and 'hide' in!

The Unique Benefits at this Castle:
La Noue quickly takes over your senses and becomes a paradise for the visiting guests, adults and children alike. The 'Grande Dame' as I lovingly refer to her, graciously offers its serene and calm setting amidst a 120 acres park. Thanks to its proximity to the major sights of the Loire Valley - world reknowned for its magnificent Royal Chateaux and Gardens, historical sites and gastronomic restaurants and wineries, La Noue is a perfect 'Home' while visiting the Valley of the Kings. The apartment is very large (2000sq.ft) and easily can accommodate 6 guests in the existing bedding. Additional rooms can be opened for larger groups. It has been carefully decorated to give the guests this unique 'Home' atmosphere and be a great retreat at the end of days of sightseeing throughout the region.
