This B&B in a quiet position just outside Loches is in a great location for visiting many of the major castles and towns in the Loire Valley. We stayed 5 nights in the ‘Peche de Vigne’ room, which is spacious, well appointed and has wonderful views across the golden corn fields and the countryside. The en-suite bathroom is also of a generous size with modern fittings and very clean. All bedrooms are upstairs and there is a guest lounge with tea and coffee making facilities and a TV. Downstairs we were able to use a dining table in the large lobby when we felt like eating in. The whole building is kept very clean and tidy. Clarisse and Stephane were excellent hosts throughout our stay and Clarisse was more than happy to help me sort out a problem with the car by talking to the hire company and the local garage. In fact, communicating with her was really easy, right from the booking phase to our departure. Our hosts were also most helpful in providing local information and suggesting places to visit in the Loire valley.
Breakfast consisted of fruit juice, croissants, fresh bread, yoghurt, butter and yummy home made jam with tea or coffee. The food was fresh and of high quality. The only thing missing, at least in my mind, was some fresh local fruit, which was abundantly available at the time, and would have made a welcome addition to the continental breakfast.
Overall, I highly recommend this B&B as a base for exploring the Loire valley.

A beautiful Chateaux farmhouse converted by the family into a scrubbed contemporary home.
The home is spectacular, guest rooms generous and spacious. Scrupulously clean, with lovely views over the countryside.
A separate lounge is available should you want it.(shared sometimes with the family)
A fantastic base for visiting the Loire Valley with its incredible Chateau's', but separate enough to have solitude.
The breakfast was very French, my only suggestion would be that this was improved by adding more fruit and some cold meat or eggs, we felt very filled with bread especially after a stint in Paris.
However there is a supermarket not far away if the need arises.
A gite is being completed where wheel chair access would be better.

We were on a honeymoon trip in several places in Europe and planned to stay 2 nights visiting the Loire valley but when saw how beautiful the place looked on the internet we added one extra night and cut away from Paris visiting time. This turned up to be more than a wise decision as the “maison” looks and FEELS even lovelier when you are there and the hosts are more then welcoming.
The house was an old stable of a castle nearby but it feels more like a castle itself! It is beautifully decorated and renovated while it still preserves some history within its walls. The room we stayed in was adorable and again decorated with style and it smelled of lavender so to say it made you feel like home would be an understatement.
The house is very near the medieval town of Loch, a very nice surprise as we weren’t expecting too much, with a castle, lots of old buildings and friendly people. From Loch, Clarisse, the host, helped us plan 2 routes to visit all that was worth visiting in that time frame. What I can recommend is the castle of Chenonceaux and the gardens of Villandry and also a lovely country village full with flowers (don’t remember the name but she will tell you). Obviously for all of this you would need a car, since driving is the only way to go around.
Another plus is the breakfast that included fresh croissants and bred with delicious homemade “confitures”. We also bought a few jars of this confiture but they were empty after a couple of weeks after our return home.
To conclude, I would definitely recommend this place and would go there again!

This is a fantastic bed and breakfast on the edge of the Loire valley that is perfect for exploring the southern and eastern chateaux such as Chenenceau, Montpoupon, and Loches. The hostess studied in San Francisco, speaks good English, and loves having English speaking visitors to help them plan their vacations. The house is a refurbished manor house sitting on a hilltop with a great view of the family farm and the countryside. The breakfast is classic French, with wonderful bread and homemade jams. Will definitely go back to this one.

My wife and I spent 4 nights at Domaine de la Maison Neuve with our 10 months old little girl. It was perfect... As others have already described, the place is magnificent. An old farm renovated in a beautiful mix of modern and classic. The walls are the typical clay stones from the Loire Valley, the place is spotless clean and fresh. The owners are really sweet. Besides Clarisse who did everything to make us feel at home, we also had the chance to met her family including her mom who is really adorable.

They helped us a lot with our visits and reservations (the dos and don'ts around there) and they also provided everything we needed for our little girl (bed, chair, change table...). The location is a little bit off the beaten path so you have to plan your days properly to limit the driving but the area is beautiful / quite and the prices are some of the best we ever got for the quality. We would absolutely go back there and we strongly recommend the place to anyone who wants to experience the region... if you go there and you like food and wine, you MUST go to a restaurant called la Promenade. it's lost in the middle of nowhere, 20 mn from the B&B but you will have the best meal of your life for the best price ever. We had a tasting menu with aperitifs, digestifs, a mythic bottle of 14 year old Clos Rougeard from Saumur for 170 Euros all included... I would go back to this part of France just to visit Clarisse and her family and to go see Xavier, the sommelier at la Promenade...
