  • Serene setting with an abundance of charm!

    "What a fantastic time at Lebelvedere. Lovely historic home filled with beautiful antiques and works of art. My husband and I stayed three nights and wished we could have extended the visit. The cottage we stayed in was very spacious. Enjoyed late afternoons just sitting in the garden reading and drinking excellent wine from the region. Lebelvedere is in a village we found to be very welcoming. Great places to walk along the river through parks and to a winery. Located just a short block to the town square with cafes, restaurants, and shops. Enjoyed eating at the square and walking back to the home, without having to drive. Dominque and Jean are wonderful hosts recommending chateaus, museums, and restaurants. Two of our favorite memories are the aerial tour of the chateaus by Jean and the Leonardo di Vinci museum. My husband was in the Air Force and he and Jean, a former pilot, could have talked for hours about planes. Dominque is very gracious and prepared a wonderful selection of croissants, breads, cheese, beverages and homemade yogurt for breakfast. Delightful way to start each day. Would recommend it to anyone interested in a special treat!"

  • Comfortable, charming apartment!

    "We loved our stay in this charming apartment. It was comfortable, convenient to everything, and right across the street from Leonardo de Vinci's home, which our kids thought was amazing. Our hosts were gracious and helpful. We would highly recommend this rental for families traveling with kids. It worked out perfectly for us."

  • 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!"

  • Vacation retreat

    "This cottage was perfect. It met all of our needs, was in a great location, well stocked with travel books and information as to what to do in the area. The cottage was very clean and had all the amenities one could ask for. It was close to groceries and easy access to get to the chateaus and wineries. Loved it!"
