“Superb location but some issues with accommodation”
Reviewed 2 October 2012

Difficult to find as rue du Chateau (at the front of the property) is a pedestrianised street and rue (des Fosses) St. Ours (at the back of the property) can only be approached from the south west (via Mail de la Poterie) - avoid the town centre. There is free parking at the top of rue St. Ours or alternatively c.100mtrs down this road (both c.50mtrs. from B & B). The B & B is rather an odd sort of place as it seems to have once been 2 houses on 2 streets but joined by a creaky but fascinating 16th C. staircase. We stayed in the somewhat quirky 'chambre Jeune' at the top of the staircase but it was rather chilly (mid-Sept. - no heat in radiator). The room was reasonably large but with nowhere much to put clothes and the washing and toilet facilities were only partially screened from the rest of the room. There was no light above the shower and the toilet was dreadfully positioned under a sloping ceiling so that you couldn't stand up to use it. The B & B owner was pleasant and helpful and breakfast in a room on the ground floor was fairly good. Can't rate the place very highly (perhaps other rooms are better), although it's central position is ideal for exploring Loches (a really pretty and interesting town).

Room Tip: Avoid 'chambre Jeune' unless you're happy to sit down to use the toilet.

Great friendly service in this B&B. In a great location with free parking nearby, we were able to wander the ancient town of Loches. Our room had character, lots of artwork ( the owner has a gallery)and our bathroom had an Arabian touch. Breakfast was beautiful with plenty to eat and was served in the dining room. The authentic 15th century stairs that we needed to climb to get to our room, could be a challenge for some older visitors but Claude was so helpful that I am sure he would help. His recommendation for dinner was excellent and we were able to avoid the tourist menu. Although we only had one night at this delightful B&B we were made to feel very welcome.

Reviewed 29 June 2011

We were passing through the Loire Valley en route to catch a ferry. After a 15 hour drive, we wanted to stay somewhere that had a little bit of character (not a character-less motorway hotel.)

I contacted the owners by email and explained that we would be arriving late. The B&B is located above a small art gallery on one of the main streets in Loches. The owners don't appear to live on site, but came down to meet us. We were led through the (very nice) gallery into a quaint older building, the staircase was still the original and 400 years old! The room we were given was lovely and huge - three beds, a kitchenette and a decent bathroom. The decor was very tasteful and it overlooked the main street.

The location is superb and the price is reasonable. We paid €60 for the night in the room with breakfast. The owner could not have done more to make our visit more enjoyable. He joined us for breakfast and was so friendly and had plenty of advice about the Loire Valley and it's environs.

Parking is up the road in a public carpark and is free. There is also limited on street parking at the back door of the B&B.

I would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to others who will be travelling in the area.
