We spent two nights at Maison Carre and its a wonderful Chambres d'hotes, in an excellent location for exploring the Loire Valley - a must stay! Our room located on ground level with its own entrance was large, very clean, with a big bed (very firm mattress) and sitting area, beautiful antique furniture and a lovely bathroom. The room & bathroom has heaters which kept the rooms really warm. At night it is very quiet, the car parking is in the main courtyard and the main gates to the property are locked in the evening. The breakfast was amazing, so much food layed out for you to help yourselves, homemade jams & cakes, delicious croissants and on our second morning a beautiful homemade cherry custard dish. You have access to this beautiful breakfast area during your stay to make tea or coffee, there is also lots of information on the area and places to see. Beautiful illustrated books in this room and our room. On our first night we had the table d'hotes served in the main house, the food was delicious, cooked and served by Madame Evelyne who is a very charming hostess. We had a wonderful evening with the other guests. The second night we walked to a lovely restaurant for dinner in Montrichard. Madame Evelyne speaks a little English, as we only speak a little French, booking was easily done via the Internet and a phone call. We highly recommend a stay at this charming property.
