Impressive towers and very comfortable top floor guestroom. Location is peaceful, and the outdoor pool was nice. Reception staff were hospitable and spoke English quite well. Dinner was underwhelming, as several meat courses were served nearly raw. Of our two weeks at chateau and abbey hotels this place had the most expensive and skimpiest breakfast.

We had a king room with a sofa bed for the 3 or us. The room was big and comfortable. However, we did not get to stay in the main tower, but in the annex to the hotel. We did the wine cave tour and loved tasting and hearing about the local wines. We also had 1 amazing dinner at...

Lovely property in a serene location near Chinon. Decor was a mix of modern and traditional. Staff were pleasant. Nice bedding and very comfortable room. Cosy fireplace in the lounge area. A nice rural Chateau retreat.

The Chateau De March is beautiful. It has a long tree lined drive as an entry and then a complex of buildings dominated by the main four story structure with turrets. It is out in the country, use GPS, and is surrounded by farms and horse pastures. We spent two nights and did not find a single reason to complain....

Had wonderful stay at Chateau de Marcay. Dinner at restaurant 2 nights, very nice. Highly recommend. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Grounds were big and very cozy. Relaxed outside one day playing games and drinking wine. Great time and Marcay!

We recently went on a Backroads Bike Trip through the Loire Valley. We stayed at 3 very nice Chateaus - but this was the nicest property. The food was excellent and the ground immaculate. A number of different rooms, settings to take in the scenery. Unlike some of the older Chateaus there was air conditioning.

We stayed for a couple of nights as a couple, with our large dog. The reason we selected this hotel as opposed to others was the history of the building, and the fact it was dog friendly. Little did we know the food would be so good, we could have stayed a few more days. The staff are very friendly,...

We enjoyed our visit to the Chateau de Marcay. The property is spectacular. Several hundred years old and in the middle of the countryside. The common areas are meticulously maintained. A beautiful bar room and living room. Our room was located in the west wing of the chateau. It was spacious, with a private terrace. Strong wifi connection for those...
