“Very good place to stay. Warm welcome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013

We stayed for 3 nights to bike in the Loire area. Very warm welcoming couple that owns this B&B. If you want to be active with biking this is a good starting point.if you are traveling to or from the south west of France it is well worth a stay over for a couple of days as there is a lot to see in the area. If you want to relax this is also the place to be as it is located very quietly just a few kms from Blois. Slept very well in the good beds. We made use of the rooms "La Source" as well as "L'Atelier" and both were good.
Returning from biking it was a pleasure to use their swimming pool to refresh again.
Nice to be able to park your car completely fenced. Not that we had an exclusive car to protect, but if you have this is definitely a pro for your comfort.

We stayed at La Source for 2 days at the beginning and 2 days at the end of our 6 day cycling holiday on the Loire.
La Source is a treasure. The rooms are beautifully prepared and spotless. The swimming pool is a delight to come back to.
The breakfasts are delicious, a mixture of freshly cooked pancakes or brioche and home made jams, yogurt and fruits from the garden, croissants, fresh coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice . The breakfast is included in a very competitive price.
The advice and helpfulness of Chatherine and Christian, with maps, chateau discount vouchers, restaurant bookings was just perfect.
The situation is 5 Kms outside Blois but this enhances rather than detracts; and the access to all the chateau of the loire is easy. It is 4 hours from Cherbourg.

Room Tip: the web page photos do not do justice to the beauty of the location, house and garden.

A very warm welcome from charming, hosts Cathérine and Christian who couldn't have been more helpful during our stay.
Good advice was given on local attractions and restaurants with Cathérine offering to ring and book for us, Christian guided us to the cycle path into Blois and pumped up our tyres too!
It was lovely to chat with them both over drinks and canapés generously offered.
The spacious rooms are stylishly decorated with attention to detail and very clean, our shower too was superb. We stayed in the room at the top during 4 very warm days and the large fan provided kept us cool. A haven of peace and tranquillity, the garden, swimming pool and historic building are all beautifully maintained.
Breakfast is wonderful and plentiful. We had fresh fruit from the garden, home made yoghurt and jams, croissants, bread and a different hot dish each day; pancakes, brioche and apricot crumble all delicious and impossible to resist!
A delightful place to stay in and definitely the best we have experienced in France - we would highly recommend and hope to return soon.

We stopped off at La Source in mid October near the lovely old city of Blois on our way south. It is not the easiest place to find but it is well worth it. It is set in a small hamlet in an extremely quiet backwater. Having stayed here a couple of years ago, we knew what to expect. The husband and wife team that run this delightful bed and breakfast are a friendly and charming couple. Their standards of cleanliness and efficiency are extremely high and we were made very welcome. The rooms are modern, airy and clean. With no other guests during our one night stay, we heard nothing during the night but the birds. Catherine's English is not too bad and on arrival she asked us into their lounge for a cup of tea and a chat. The breakfast was typically French and absolutely superb. Home made jams, butter and yogurt made this meal a delight. Being October, we did not use the pool, but we strolled around the garden after arriving, before going on to explore Blois with its great history and lovely restaurants. We would have no hesitation in recommending this B&B to anybody. Catherine and Christian work hard to make their home a high quality stop off for anybody looking for French charm and attention to detail.

Spent 2 nights at La Source in October 2012. One of the best B&Bs we've ever stayed at! Delightful hosts Catherine and Christian. New, roomy accommodation with luxury fittings in beautifully converted historic building. Superb breakfast. Close to Blois, Chateaux and lots of restaurants. Hightly recommended!

A smiling, friendly greeting with a charming mix of French and English . A house, garden and swimming pool ideal for a quiet and relaxing holiday - just try to stay for a few days to make the most of the Loire Valley and all the magnificent chateaux.
We were lucky and had the choice of 3 spacious rooms, all beautifully decorated with luxurious showers - difficult to decide but another reason for coming again!
After enjoying many special B&B's in France we must congratulate Catherine and Christian for their hospitality and their superb breakfasts - definitely THE BEST in France.

Room Tip: Book early, only 3 rooms, all excellent .

It was a delight to stay with Catherine & Christian at La Source, their charming B&B in the village of St.-Denis-sur-Loire. We spent 5 days there while exploring the chateaux in the surrounding areas. We enjoyed staying in a village (as opposed to the larger city of Blois nearby), not only because it was quiet & peaceful, but also because we enjoyed exploring St.-Denis on the banks of the Loire (there are lovely shaded walking trails all along the river.) Our room was spacious & immaculate with a view over the swimming pool and the gardens beyond. Our hosts gave us a comprehensive list of restaurants nearby for dinner, but served breakfast every morning. And what a breakfast it was! There was always fresh juice & coffee/tea, croissants & rolls with butter & jam, fresh fruit, absolutely DELICIOUS yogurt made by Catherine, and a surprise warm dish that changed each day (eg. crepes or french toast) - and most everything was organic! We would definitely return to this French haven!

Room Tip: There are only 3 rooms on the property, but the larger one on the second floor with fireplace &...
