We were blown away by our visit to the Loire valley, and it was all thanks to Dominique and her wonderful service. From our very first e-mail for information, Dominique was friendly, professional, and very prompt in her replies. We stayed for two days and one night. We had thought to visit four of the chateaus during our visit, but Dominique helped us by recommending a few others that we could include along the way, and we were able to see six in two days. There is no way we could have done that on our own.
The house is beautiful. The room is very spacious, and full of windows overlooking a beautiful garden. The room is immaculately clean. Breakfast was delightful, with great coffee, orange juice, baguette, croissant, fresh fruit and preserves, including some homemade ones.
As for the car service, I would absolutely recommend this to anyone visiting the area. There was no stress at all, as Dominique knows all the roads and shortcuts to get you where you need to be. Dominique was very patient with us as we sorted out our schedule of what to do, and as noted above was able to provide excellent recommendations for additional stops along the way including additional chateaus, cafes, and a wine tasting. We were able to take our time to see each chateau at our leisure, and when we were done Dominique was there waiting for us with a smile to continue our journey. We never felt rushed, and Dominique was able to keep us on schedule, as she knows approximately how long each chateau would take to visit.
Dominique is a gracious host who speaks English impeccably well. It was great to have someone to translate for us, since one of us spoke no French at all. Her kind demeanor and wonderful sense of humor really made us feel as thought we were visiting a good friend who wanted us to stay with her and have her show us the sights. It was truly a great experience that I would recommend to anyone who is visiting the Loire Valley.
