We actually travelled to the Loire Valley in August 2011 and stayed 2 nights at the Domaine du Héron at the suggestion of a friend who had discovered it the year before. She had told me that this place was her "coup de coeur" and recommended it to several people who all loved it. The service was outstanding. Madame Jeanne even made pancakes for my son who mentioned that he had enjoyed eating that during our trip. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and everything served was home-made. We ate in both the indoor dining room and on the terrasse, which were both charming. The owner also took us to see his vineyards and we very much enjoyed talking to him and tasting his wine. Travelling as a family of 4, we stayed in the Suite du Héron which has 2 bedrooms and an ensuite bathroom in between. The decor is exquisite, the beds comfortable, the service impeccable, and everything is done and cared for lovingly. We felt very welcome. One suggestion would be to install fans in the bedrooms as it can get very hot in the summer, especially with the windows that must be closed to prevent tiny flying insects from coming in at night. While in Rivière, we visited Azay-le-Rideau, the Chinon castle and city nearby, as well as the Château de Villandry with its beautiful gardens. The Domaine du Héron is right next to a very nice old church. Highly recommended.
