Les Hautes Gatinieres
Ranked #4 of 8 Rochecorbon B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 June 2013

We had five nights at this first rate bed and breakfast and loved it. Jacqueline and Andre were the kindest and most attentive of hosts and we were very comfortable and happy in their house.
Andre picked us up and took us back to the airport and supplied acres of helpful information and brochures/discount vouchers and general guidance. Jacqueline kept an immaculate house and provided large and excellent breakfasts.
We did not have a car but were able to access Tours and a number of the top chateaux easily by bus and train. There are a number of restaurants in the locality, all accessible on foot, but be warned that all involve a mighty climb back to the house, which is at the top of a very steep hill. Of course the upside of this is lovely views from the house - but only after you have recovered from the climb!
This is a lovely place to stay with the most charming hosts. Passing through Tours or looking for a base to visit the Loire chateaux? Then stay here.

A very warm welcome greeted us even though we hadn't booked a room.This is a really excellent beautiful maision and garden to stay . Domonique was a splendid host to us on both our visits. The breakfast had so much choice, butterfly clips on the serviettes and fresh cut flowers on the table, especially the roses from Domonique's personal garden the perfume was beautful. The bedroom was spotlessly clean and so comfortable, with fridge, clean towels and so quiet and relaxing. Dominique was so helpful with directions and even used his computer in order to communicate with our English speaking more easily. Would not hesitate to stay again and fully recommend to all. Many thanks for our wonderful stay.

We were impressed by Andre's knowledge of the area. Andre definitely saved us a lot of time by the very useful information regarding chateaus and restaurants that he provided to us. Accommodation was ample for what we needed - with parking on site, clean, and good location within the region. We did not have any problems with locating the property on our Peugeot GPS. Parking was impressive - secured behind the property's gates. Separate entrance for guests into the rooms were ideal. Highlight was enjoying the peace and quiet in Andre's backyard overlooking a little town. Breakfast was ample.

Each of the previous reviews has covered,accurately ,the attractions of Les Hautes Gatinieres. We especially enjoyed a couple of dinners [ purchased from the Charcuterie at Vouvray ] on the large terrace at the rear of the property; it has expansive views over the village below. Like other reviewers, I found the street easily but could not identify the property; a promininent "Les Hautes Gatinieres " sign on the entrance would help. Andre and Jacqueline's impressive efficiency,knowledge and enthusiasm for their busines and the region has left us wanting to return.

Loved our 3 night stay in this delightful B & B. Jacqueline and Andre have created a really nice home and business and we were so lucky to have discovered it. All that the previous review says still applies. Our room and bathroom was immaculate and very roomy. Free wireless internet access in our room. Seperate entrance down the side or the house and up to our room via the stairs. Breakfast was served in the dining room downstairs. Great breakfast.....everything so fresh and inviting. Loved the boiled egg...done to perfection. Hosts very attentive, and happy to help with your sightseeing plans. Never over fussy either, which we liked. We had very limited French, Jacqueline has quite good English so communication was not a problem. She also took care of my laundry and ironing for me which was greatly appreciated. The area was about 15 minutes from Tours, and was good as a base for doing some of the Chateaus and the area generally. It was really beautiful area and we enjoyed our time there. Their white poodle named Lucky was a treat too! Surprised to see only the 1 review on this property.....Thought there should have been many more who have discovered it. The house location is difficult to find so best to get clear directions. We found it first up with our GPS....but kept doubting whether it was correct or not as it was a bit out of the way. High up on a windy road...overlooking the village. Really nice spot. Highly recommended.

Absolutely loved our stay here. Jacqueline and Andre’s meticulous care for their home and business shines in every detail. Pink toilet paper with folded corners, embroidered towels, bottled water in the fridge, beaded napkin holders at breakfast, etc. And that’s above and beyond the pretty views from their backyard, the quiet, comfortable rooms and the generous hospitality. Jacqueline offered brochures and a map, recommending several chateaux to visit while we had breakfast. Guest rooms are upstairs (there is one flight of stairs to climb) and are separated from the main residence with a door, which leads down to the living room and dining room area where breakfast is served. Their white poodle is adorable too. Parking is in front of the house, secure, behind their gated entrance. They speak a little English, I speak a little French, and Jacqueline speaks French slowly and is patient, so we were able to communicate. Rochecorbon is a great base for being near Vouvray (5 minutes) and Tours (10-15 minutes). It’s about 1-1 ½ hours drive to Chateaux Chambord and Cheverny from here. The Loire Valley is long and wide, so you are going to be driving if you want to visit lots of chateaux. Amboise might be the best village to be located very close to all the most well-known chateaux, but we were thrilled with our stay here and with the price. Andre even offered a frequent guest card upon our departure to use toward gaining a free stay if we or our family/friends return. Must pay in cash. My only advice is to use your GPS or sat-nav to find the house by address. The road was listed under “Soleil” in our GPS – not by the full name. We used the GPS coordinates listed on their web site, which I was certain I double-checked, but that put us in a field about 3 blocks away. We spent about 20 minutes trusting our GPS before we parked at the bottom of the hill and began walking around, trying to find the place on foot, before I realized I should try to program in the address. The house is located up on the high hillside in Rochecorbon right by the water tower.
