Recent Centre-Loire Valley reviews

  • A restful and interesting place to experience French culture and country life

    "My family and friends all enjoyed our stay at the Bournand chateau. The place is charming and peaceful. And nearby, there are so many beautiful castles, caves, gardens to explore, good fresh produce & food to savor and interesting culture & history to learn, I cannot find a better place to experience an ideal French country life. Above all, the owner Marie had been a most gracious hostess. Alway with a cheerful smile, she provided helps when we asked and gave suggestions when we were unfamiliar with the local custom/conditions. She had made our stay most comfortable."

  • One of a kind experience - do not miss this

    "We just returned from our second weeklong visit to Le Charmois (our first was in 2013). It is an amazing country estate. The inside of the home is comfortable, roomy, beautifully decorated, and contains every convenience you need. The outside is in a beautiful garden and forest setting that offers wonderful walks. The location is two hours from Charles de Gaulle, and serves as the perfect base for exploring the Loire valley. The best chateaus are easy drives - Chenonceaux, Chambord, Cheverny, Azay Le Rideau, Villandry, and Sully sur Loire are just some of the highlights. Same is true for some beautiful towns - Orleans, Bourges, Blois, Loches, Gien, and others. A number of wineries and other sites are also nearby. Le Charmois is itself next to the town of Chaumont Sur Tharonne, which is quiet and charming. If you decide against touring, and instead want to spend your stay enjoying the property, you will not be disappointed by the beautiful setting. But I imagine more people are likely to combine sightseeing with enjoying Le Charmois. The folks managing the property are outstanding and very helpful with whatever you will need. This includes the wonderful housekeeper, Catherine (who also cooks if you like), to the owners and other liaisons who offer remote support. All ages enjoy Le Charmois. We had grandparents, grandchildren, and the inbetween during our stays. Again, do not miss a chance to stay here!"

  • Ten stars - the best.

    "We have rented apartments in Paris and other places; but Le Clos De Venise was the best we have ever experienced. I can not begin to say enough good things about Le Clos De Venise - and its charming, friendly and caring owners - Claude and Francine. There were three of us (adults) and we stayed for just a month in the summer of 2014. Our regret is that we did not stay for two months - or three. Almost every day we visited chateau’s - ate déjeuner with wine out on the lawn in front of the house - then drove into Amboise for dinner. Life does not get better than this. Thank you so much, Claude & Francine - for our best vacation in years. Jim & Margaret & Cordelia"

  • Loire Valley Vacation

    "My husband and I (60's) and our son and daughter-in-law (30's) appreciated having 2 bathrooms. The property was very well maintained and as advertised. The owner was very helpful with recommendations for meals and shopping and we loved being greeted with a jar of apricot jam. We spent a week with the village as home base and with excursions to see the chateaux each day. We walked out to one of the excellent boulangers each morning, found a pleasant small restaurant for dinner and an outstanding boucherie for picnic supplies. There is a lovely path along the Cher for evening walks. I would definitely return and spend more time just enjoying the property!"
