Chateau / Country House, 6 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 14-18)
- english, french
I was born in Paris, and spent all my holidays when I was young with my parents in this area I love and know quite well. My husband (who has his job nearby) and I really like sharing French culture, history and way of life with our guests. We are looking forward to making you feel as at home in our house, and enjoy our country !
Why Marie chose Bournand
We chose chateau de Bournand, because having a guest house like this was the dream of our life.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
My husband and I felt in love with this charming house, well-located in a small town and close to the 'garden of France' and the Loire Valley with all its castles and wineries.

Lovely Place to Stay
Marie was very welcoming offered recommendations of where to eat and booked a restaurant for us on our first night which turned out to be just as good as she said and in a beautiful location.
The rooms were very pretty, clean and comfortable. The grounds and gardens were delightful, not too formal so that you could relax in them. We had three generations of our family with us and everyone enjoyed their stay. A good place for older and younger children to explore. The teenagers and adults in our group enjoyed using the pool.
There was also plenty to visit and see in the surrounding area and we had some lovely meals out and also eating back at Bournand sitting in the garden. Thierry showed me the herb garden and said we were welcome to pick and use whatever we needed and we did.
Bourand was perfect for our family group as we were able to share the kitchen, dining room and sitting room but also had the privacy of our separate rooms. We enjoyed sitting outside our room drinking coffee with Socks, the cat in the morning.
Marie and Thierry were charming and so is Chateau de Bournand.
Evelyn, Benedict and their whole family were very nice guests. It was a great pleasure to receive them all, they were so smiling, happy and easy to please.
My husband Thierry and I were glad to speak with them several times and to give them our best recommendations!
It is just great for us to have guests who feel at home here and enjoy our property as they did. We are deeply grateful for this kind review, and really hope to receive them again!
Beautiful grounds in cozy cottage
We had a lovely time at Marie's wonderful property. Great pool for the kids and lots of space from them to run around. The house had a nice gathering area and a great place to grill and dine outside. Marie was super accommodating and helped us out with reservations for restaurants and wineries. Not much to the town of Bournand but close to Loudun which has everything you need. 20 minutes from Chinon.
Thank you for this very kind review, I'm so happy that you enjoyed our Chestnuts Cottage, its amenities and outdoor furniture and terrace, so comfortable during Summertime.
The most important thing for me is to help my guests to discover the area and all the nice spots you can visit on a short drive, as Chinon, Fontevraud or Saumur, the main castles of the Loire Valley and their wines...
I hope to see you later for a longer stay, with many other beautiful places to visit.
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.
Great Stay, Great Owners
We had the pleasure of spending two wonderful weeks at Chateau de Bournand. The Chateau living quarter, the pool and gardens where great. The location in the Loire Valley was perfect for touring with many chateaus, forts, abbeys and castles an easy drive. We have traveled the world but have never found hosts who were as friendly and always offering assistants and suggestions of interesting places to visit. Thanks for a memerable stay John and Vicki
Très agréable week-end en famille
Merci Marie pour l’accueil chaleureux dans votre belle propriété et votre très bon dîner.
Très bonne adresse pour un week-end familial.
Un chaleureux merci à toute votre famille pour avoir choisi notre propriété pour organiser ce week-end d'anniversaire familial.
A une prochaine fois, j'espère.
