We – a party of five - got to Chateau de Beaulieu in Saumur by a happy accident: instead of booking us near Tours, the travel agency booked us in Saumur. So, we were a bit apprehensive, not knowing what to expect. Well, we got a warm welcome, with sparkling wine and snacks, charming rooms – ours was decorated in elegant, soothing blue gray and red accents – with a spacious, clean, modern, double sink bathroom. Each morning we had a lovely breakfast of fresh strawberries, cheese, croissants, good coffee, all with a side of interesting conversation with other guests. The staff is so very friendly and accommodating; Miss Mary helped us with plotting the day trips so we could make the most out of our five nights stay in the region. She even made dinner reservations for us. Her husband, Connor, speaks German, which was a nice bonus for our German travel companions, while the fact that both Mary and Connor (the owners) are Irish made it easier for us, English speaking folks with very limited French vocabulary.
All in all, we enjoyed a comfortable, relaxing stay, which, to me, felt more like visiting friends then staying at a hotel stay.
