Loire Valley Retreat Amenities

Loire Valley Retreat Amenities

Arriving at this pretty Chateau, nestled amongst rolling Loire Valley scenery, it's easy to see why its friendly Anglo-French owners, Charlotte and Jerome Field, were so enthralled that they ditched high flying careers and international travel to transform it into a small but perfectly formed boutique guest house and self-catering cottage.

After completing three luxurious guest suites in the main Chateau two years ago and finding much praise for them from past guests, the Fields have recently transformed the adjoining 17th century stable block into a contemporary cottage with two bedrooms.

Like the suites, the gite's well-planned design reflects the owners combined experiences of luxury travel and provide all the ingredients required for an effortlessly, relaxing break. The indulgent bathrooms combine high spec finishes with rubber ducks and training seats( on request), whilst the bedrooms are perfect for even the most frazzled of guests thanks to the memory foam mattresses and soothing, neutral palette. The kitchen is equipped to high standard, making cooking a doddle. However when extra relaxation is in order guests can also opt into the hotel’s delicious, evening dinner service. Plus, for guests with children in tow the hotel can provide handy baby gear, kids suppers and babysitting.

The gite has its own private terrace, ideal for alfresco dining, as well as use of the chateau's grounds including a heated outdoor pool, children's play area and plentiful tranquil seating spots nestled in between. Attractions don't end there as wine enthusiasts (and enthusiastic amateurs), will often enjoy free tastings, along with the opportunity to visit their wine making rooms and six hundred year old vaulted cellars.

Accommodation Overview:

l'Tour is set in the central section of the Chateau's 16th century stable block. The gîte has two spacious bedrooms, each with space for a cot and their own luxurious, en suite bath and shower room. Downstairs there is a spacious open plan living area comprising of a fully fitted kitchen (with dishwasher), dining area, sitting/TV space, and doors to a private rear courtyard terrace.

The communal pool, garden and play areas are and are accessible through the front courtyard.

Gite rental prices include an arrival night meal and essential first night/morning groceries and delicious continental breakfast or a daily bakery delivery service to your door, are available at a small additional charge.

  • Had a wonderful first holiday with our almost 6 month old son. Owners were very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us, they provided us with a cot, monitor, toys, baby bath, changing mat everything we needed for our little one. Property is beautiful, with lots for little ones to do, a number of animals which delighted our son, the pool was lovely (a little chilly some days because the weather was cooler but we still managed to use it a number of times during our stay). They have a lovely treatment room which can be booked for massage and facial treatments. We also had a lovely evening reviewing wine with Jerome and Charlotte tasting a few of the wines from the region. Location wise it was fairly central and there was lot to do - chateaus, the fortress in nearby Chinon, bio park and botanical gardens, to name a few. All in all a lovely place to stay with delightful hosts.Review dated 03/10/2016

  • A wonderful find with a rare and precious blend of luxury, warmth and homeliness. From the moment you arrive through the gate, the hosts make you feel like you're part of the family. Nothing is ever a problem and we loved the relaxing atmosphere with a free-range feel. It's the perfect family break with young children: lots to do (bike rides, swings, pool, nearby towns, markets and attractions) and opportunities to truly unwind (option of home cooked banquets twice weekly, honesty-policy wine cellar, supervised playroom, babysitting service, even a masseuse/ beautician to your cottage!).Review dated 02/06/2016

  • Wonderful place to stay. Charlotte and Jerome couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. They make impeccable hosts.Review dated 15/10/2014

  • Beautiful and peaceful Chateau, and a great holiday base with a baby. Breakfast was provided daily, then lunch and dinner were self catering except for 3 evening meals, a balance which worked really well for us. Charlotte and Jerome were friendly, responsive and helpful both before and during our stay. I think I can honestly say that our week here was the most relaxed we have felt since our baby was born!Review dated 26/08/2014

  • We had the most amazing holiday. We really didn't want to leave and wished we had booked 2 weeks rather than one. Charlotte and Jerome are perfect hosts, offering excellent food and wine. Our children had a fantastic week meeting and playing with the other children as we did with the other parents. Accomodation and facilities faultless. Can't wait to return.Review dated 03/08/2014

  • We had an excellent time here, the accommodation was beautiful and hosts incredibly welcoming and friendly.Review dated 25/05/2014
