We stayed here in early September for one night with our 3 daughters aged 7, 5 and 3. We were travelling home again at the end of a very pleasant 2 week holiday in the Lot and needed a place for an overnight stay.
Le Chat Courant is situated on the opposite side of the Loire from Chateau Villandry. You can see the Chateau from the lane outside the house although due to appalling weather on our second day we didn’t actually get to visit.
The owner, Eric and his wife and son made us very welcome and we found the accommodation and facilities to be excellent. There is a fabulous pool and extensive gardens with plenty of interest for young children. Whilst we were there the garden was full of trees groaning under the weight of delicious fruit which was available whenever anyone was feeling peckish.
Having now stayed there we can’t wait to go back for a longer visit to check out the local area in more detail.
I recommend Le Chat Courant for families and couples who are looking for a very friendly informal and comfortable base to explore the area.
