  • Absolute heaven in the Loire Valley

    "I cannot find the words to express the magic of our holiday at Chateau des Grotteaux. We assembled a group of 33 family and friends here and our only disappointment was having to leave. Pierre Antoine, the owner, was very responsive leading up to our arrival and was helpful in recommending caterer and bike rentals, among other things. Our group spent the majority of our time eating and lounging by the large and beautiful pool as the weather was perfect all week, ranging from low 60s in the mornings to around 80 late in the day. We organized bikes to be delivered to the chateau and biked from there to Blois, Cheverny, and Chambord, with wine tasting stops in the surrounding countryside, all on the extensive bike trail system that covers the area. Tennis tournaments were arranged for the tennis court, which is accessed by a short walk through the enchanting forest. We also arranged for two formal dinners to be served in the large dining room which easily accommodated our large numbers. The caterer provided a simple breakfast each morning, which we supplemented with fruit and cereal. Fresh vegetables were ordered from the neighboring farm. We also used the pool kitchen for several big, collaboratively cooked meals. The kitchen is well stocked, and the huge grill (supplied with charcoal) is fantastic! The kitchens could use a few better knives and some roasting pans, though they were never lacking in plates, cutlery, glasses and serving dishes. The master bedrooms are sumptuously decorated and everything was well cleaned and cared for. The Norma suite of rooms made a perfect kid den and Pierre Antoine brought in several extra beds to accommodate the large number of kids we had between us. There are three sound systems supplied, in the living room, basement cafe and pool area, as well as a large AV system in the living room for showing DVDs or presentations. Thank you to Pierre Antoine for caring for our every need and providing such a beautiful place for us. Truly a chateau of fairy tales!"

  • Excellent séjour

    "Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette charmante demeure. Elle a été aménagée avec goût en respectant son authenticité, qu'il est bon de pouvoir se ressourcer dans le calme qui règne autour de cette maison. Idéalement bien placée pour visiter tous les sites historique, ainsi que les châteaux moins connus tel que Luynes, Fougères sur Bièvre, Troussay... qui vaut franchement le détour. Suèvres est un village à découvrir ainsi que ses nombreux moulins. En mémoire nous garderons le plaisir de la rencontre très chaleureuse avec les propriétaires qui nous ont parlés avec passion de leur magnifique région."

  • Home Away from Home

    "We lacked for nothing in this beautiful apartment. Incredibly well equipped with everything one could need, our apartment was spacious and lovely with beautiful antiques. For those of us who need to be connected 24/7, the wi fi was very fast and never let us down. We were close to restaurants in town, yet secluded behind a medieval wall, with a gorgeous garden. The owners, Elice and Jean Louis could not have been more gracious or generous. We loved our week here, and visited many chateaus in the Loire but were always very happy to come “home” every evening."

  • Excellent location and facilities - a fabulous cottage

    "We stayed for 14 nights in August 2014. Being central in the 'magic' triangle between the Loire and the Cher, it was an ideal base for cycling around this beautiful (and mostly flat) area. The roads were quiet and there were many, well-signposted, cycle routes and tracks to follow. On our bikes, we reached: Chaumont, Blois, Amboise, Montrichard, Loches, St. Aignan and Cheverny. A combination of car and cycle worked well to visit Chambord (cycle from Blois), Tours (cycle from Lusigny) and Orleans (cycle from Meung). The cottage itself was brilliant. Roomy and full of interest, with a mixture of very old beams with modern, comfortable furniture and fittings. Having the living room and kitchen upstairs (light and warmed by the sun) with the bedroom and shower-room downstairs (darker and cooler) worked well (we didn't need to brave the extra 2 single beds in the mezzanine/loft). The double bed was large enough and comfortable with duvet and pillows. The garden, although small, was a pretty, tranquil space and the balcony was a suntrap where the two of us could eat and drink. Plenty of room for our car in the gated yard, plus space for the two bikes in the large garage. The fast Wifi was a plus, as were the washing machine and tumble drier. Pontlevoy was pretty, with its imposing Abbey / school, yet was mostly dead. The evidence is that it used to be more lively and thriving. Now a small supermarket, the Hotel d'Ecole (very smart), the Peche Mignon (informal pizza) and La Poste bar in daytime were all we saw open."
