I spent 3 nights at the Loire Valley Retreat in mid April. As friends of hosts Jerome and Charlotte, I had no doubts that their bed & breakfast would be lovely and have all the right personal touches. Even my high expectations were far exceeded. The chateau is absolutely stunning, and the guest rooms are top of the line luxury. From Nespresso machines and ipod docks to Occitane bath products and plush bathrobes, there isn't a single detail missing.
Charlotte's meals were cooked to perfection and Jerome's wine tutorials were informative and fun. The other guests ranged from young families to older couples, and the environment is such that you can eat and spend time with the other guests or just do your own thing, whatever floats your boat. The location is close to many top Loire Valley destinations and Jerome and Charlotte are extremely helpful in suggesting day trips, sights, and restaurants and helping to make necessary reservations etc.
All in all, this place is everything a vacation is meant to be-- a relaxing, fulfilling, laid back BREAK from your daily work life. You will sleep better than ever before, be surrounded by a beautiful landscape, drink incredible wine and be in great company with Jerome and Charlotte. A foolproof plan if you ask me!More
