“Wonderful B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2013

We stayed here 2 nights. Dominque and Virginie were wonderful hosts. The room was cozy and spotlessly clean. It is a lovely historic home with a beautiful yard/garden area. Typical French breakfast with delicious baked goods.

From the outset, Dominique and Virginie were the perfect hosts - warmly welcoming, and unable to do enough to make our visit to Tours memorable. Nothing was too much trouble, and they even helped us to improve our French! The accommodation is outstanding, and breakfast was very high quality and typically French - try Virginie's homemade jams. We were even invited to join them for a birthday celebration on our return from town one evening - champagne, cake and laughter with friends around the table. Absolutely charming. We would love to stay here again.

We stayed 5 nights and were sorry we had to leave. Dominique and Virginie are the most attentive hosts, providing us with very good information about the best places to dine in Tours as well as help with our need to do washing and find a local post office as we had been on the road for some time.
The accommodation is fastidiously renovated, an excellent mix of old and new and very comfortable in a quiet area of North Tours. Virginie's breakfast helped set us up for the day with fresh bread, croissants, homemade jam, homemade yoghurt and a wonderful "cafe au lait". We also enjoyed several lengthy conversations with other guests over breakfast as the dining set up encourages this.
We were able to park inside the imposing fence which was very handy as parking on the street was sometimes hard to come by.
Wish we could have stayed longer.

We were only able to stay one night and wished we could have stayed longer. The room was beautifully decorated and clean. Breakfast was perfect and exactly when we were ready to eat. We had our own private entrance that exited to a beautiful yard.

At the end of June, by the way a very good season to see the Loire castles, we spent 4 nights at this delightful B&B.
Virginie and Dominique are very good hosts. The breakfast with homemade jams , joghurts and very nice croissants and bread is a good start for the day.
We got fanstastic advices where to dine and where to spend the days.
So we went to the most beautiful and interessting castles around Tours.
Tours itsself is worth to spend there almost a day.
We recommand this place as a tipical french historical house with a lot of family history.
We will come again .

My parents and I stayed at La Héraudière for two nights. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely return. The guest house is situated approximately 10-15 minutes from Tours centre - located in a tranquil neighborhood. The estate itself is set in a forestry garden surrounded by nature. Below are the detailed breakdown of experience-

Arrival: We had emailed in advance to arrange for pick-up and were glad to see Dominique welcoming me us with a smile waiting at the train station upon arrival. Check-in at the guest house was quick and without hassle.

Room: We had reserved the Saint-Martin room (for my parents) and Léonard de Vinci room (for myself). Saint-Martin was spacious with a table inside that we could relax and sip tea during the afternoon - it also had a magnificent view to the front yard with roses blooming during the late-spring early-summer. Léonard de Vinci was on the second floor in an adorable attic setting - it was warm and inviting like staying at a friend's house in the countryside. Both rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, and the washrooms were spotless.

Meal (breakfast): The breakfast consisted of croissants and several types of bread, home-made yogurt, home-made jam, cereal, milk, orange juice, and tea. Our favorite was pairing the home-made yogurt with the home-made jam!

Meal (dinner): We had booked dinner at La Héraudière for one of the nights. Dominique and Virginie were fantastic hosts - our dinner lasted for almost 3 hours because we had such a great time chatting. The evening commenced with a bottle of champagne, then three course meal (with wine), and ended with dessert and tea. Virginie makes delicious food!

Transportation (into the city): Since we didn't have a car, we took the public transportation into Tours centre. There was a bus stop approximately 3-5 minutes of walking from La Héraudière. And the bus ride into the city was about 15 minutes.

Overall, we really enjoyed the time at La Héraudière and would without doubt recommend it to our friends. Dominique and Virginie were friendly and helpful and made our visit to Tours a very special and memorable one.

La Héraudière is a beautifully and very tastefully restored historical country house in a large garden. It splendidly retains its historical character while the restoration has brought all the comfort the traveller needs. The character of the building and the rooms is ideally complemented by the traditional french breakfast with home-made confiture and first-class bakery.
Staying there, you get a beautiful feeling of french traditional hospitality in most charming surroundings.
