Recent Centre-Loire Valley reviews

  • 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!"

  • Fantastic place in a fantastic location.

    "We just spent a fabulous week at Clos de la Bodice. It easily accommodated 16 of us (10 adults, 6 children aged 8 - 15) without it feeling cramped. We were all able to eat together - either round the covered table outside or the round table inside. The facilities are excellent. The pool was heated and both a magnet for the kids and great for playing games. The jacuzzi was bigger than most I've seen (even in the spa hotels) and ideal to either soak listening to music or watch films. The sporting facilities were also excellent - table tennis was particularly popular (and ideal for a big game of round the table - as we'd brought extra bats). There were also plenty of loungers for sunbathing. In fact, it was so pleasant to stay at the house that it was tempting not to go out and explore the sites of the Loire valley. However, there are numerous interesting places to see just a short distance away. Several of these could have been reached by bike and there were many great local bike trails and a large number of bikes to choose from (complete with helmets). Philippe was extremely welcoming and easygoing. He allowed us to bring a caravan with 4 extra people for no charge. Also, when we phoned to ask if we could exceed the max number of people in the house, he told us he was expanding the upstairs and increasing the number of beds. And true to his word, he had done this (and didn't want any extra money). He also just shrugged when we told him we'd broken a couple of glasses. Excellent place and excellent owner. Would be keen to stay there again."

  • Most Memorable Destination

    "This is the most unique, enjoyable and memorable place my wife and I have ever stayed on vacation. It meets and exceeds what the photos and descriptions depict. When you emerge from the half-mile drive through a forest canopy, the sight of the chateau gives the feeling of arrival in a different era. That feeling is enhanced inside where guests can eat, sleep and relax in the same surroundings that have comforted others for hundreds of years, but with all the expected amenities of the modern world. We traveled by rental car during our one week stay at Chateau De La Noue and each day sought the advice of owner Christine on where to dine, shop, and visit on our excursions around Loire Valley. Her suggestions were always helpful, in particular, her tip that the Le Choiseul cave complex in Amboise was going to be open to the public for one day only, as part of France's Heritage Days. That turned out to be one of the most interesting sites we visited. Her suggestion to have lunch at Trois Marchants, near Cheverny, resulted in a most memorable meal under an umbrella on a rainy day. Christine is an excellent hostess and even walked us through how to pay our parking ticket. As another viewer suggested, please ask Christine for a tour of the portion of the chateau that is still in the process of being restored. You will get a feel for the history of the building and the amount love and effort Christine has invested in her "Grande Dame." We are recommending Chateau De La Noue to all of our friends, relatives, and anyone else that expresses any interest in visiting France. It definitely is a place we would visit again."

  • agréable

    "Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans une maison très confortable et très familiale. Située dans un parc (idéal pour les enfants) et à proximité de nombreux lieux touristiques. Nous tenons à remercier la dame qui nous a reçu pour sa gentillesse et sa disponibilité, ainsi que les propriétaires des lieux."
