  • 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!"

  • Incredible experience

    "I cannot thank Diane enough for making this house available to my friends and me for our recent vacation. It is warm, welcoming and perfect as a base to explore the French countryside or to just sit and relax. It is well stocked with dishes and cooking supplies, towels, linens and everything you could need to have a six course meal or just cook up some scrambled eggs for breakfast. There were plenty of bedrooms and the beds were comfortable. It was great that we each could have our own bathroom. There is a great book she has prepared with recommendations about activities, restaurants and just general info. We were fortunate that Diane was in residence in her portion of the property so were able to spend some time with her. Her restaurant recommendations were superb, particularly L'Auberge de l'Ecole about 20 minutes away. We has an incredible meal served by a friendly and helpful staff. Meusnes is not a hotbed of activity but the nearby town, Selles Sur Cher has a lot to offer including a great weekly market, cafes and restaurants. From our base we took daily excursions to le Chateau de Chenonceau, the Zoo Beauval (not to be missed), Blois, Tours, and several other areas. The drive through the French countryside was beautiful and not to be missed. The house was easy to get to from Paris. We rented a car in Paris and drove down using the GPS I had brought from home. No problems, not hard getting out of Paris and a fairly easy 2.5 - 3 hour drive. This is a great house for friends to share or for a family or an extended family vacation. It would work well with multi generations. I would love to be able to stay for a month, hosting various friends to visit and really becoming part of the French country life. Maybe when I retire..... Thank you, Diane"

  • Beautiful and Well Situated Accommodation

    "We couldn't have been more pleased with our accommodations at this lovely house in May. Although we did not meet the owners in person, Rosemary was just an e-mail or phone call away and she was extremely helpful in recommending sites to see and places to eat and visit. The garden is lovely in May, the house was spacious and comfortable, and the location is perfect for visiting the chateaux of the Loire Valley. The owners left a bottle of wine in the fridge, cozy terry cloth robes in the bathroom, and a computer and cell phone for us to use while we were at the house. We felt that we were personal guests of the owners. The town (and castle) of Blois are just a few minutes away. We would definitely recommend this house!"

  • Absolutely LOVED this place and can't wait to go back!

    "My husband and I stayed in this apartment with our two children (1.5 and 3.5) in November of 2014. We loved it from the first minute we walked in. It is VERY spacious. Two large bedrooms, a very large bathroom and fully equipped kitchen. The WiFi was excellent and the view from the apartment is absolutely GORGEOUS! Looking out the window is like looking at a postcard or a painting. And the owner Chantal...delightful lady and so helpful. There was also a full sized washing machine and dryer in the basement! This apartment is in an excellent location for exploring the Loire valley. We wished that we had stayed there longer. The (attic) apartment is very quiet, clean and perfect for a family. It was actually big enough for at least 4-6 adults so very spacious for our small family of 4. I cannot wait to come back. Definitely stay here, you won't be disappointed!"
