We stayed here 3 nights, on our way from Normandy to South of France. It was one of the highlights of our trip. The grounds and hotel are beautiful, swans swimming in the lake in front of the hotel, a nice pool and several trails to ride bikes or walk. It was luxurious, but very comfortable and welcoming, with an understated, easy elegance. Rooms were large and comfortable.
The staff was extremely friendly and accomodating. We enjoyed a consistent high level of service from everyone we encountered through out our entire 3 days stay. They had helpful suggestions for planning our drives to the various chateaus in the area, as well as helping us map our route to our next destination in Provence. The property is well situated to conveniently visit a number of the most spectactular chateaus along the Loire.
We had dinner in the restaurant - excellent food and stellar service, however the menu was very limited.
Overall, our family had a wonderful, five star experience here.
