“So different”
Reviewed 27 June 2011

My wife and I, both over 60's Australians, stayed 6 nights at La Paquerie and found it thoroughly enjoyable and different. Different in that it was the first and possibly the last time we will stay in a "cave" where the temperature was constantly comfortable thus we slept wonderfully. Brian and Therese, the hosts, remarked how most of their guests seemed to find they sleep well in the cave. The B & B, modern facilities, roomy, welll appointed and demonstrated Therese's wonderful taste. As a previous review detailed it is separate to Brian and Therese's home thus affording absolute privacy. The premises are are idealy located to tour the Loire and handy to facilities, a 5 minute drive to the supermarket and petrol station. The garden provides an ideal place to enjoy the view over the fields below and an afternoon or evening drink. Brian and Therese are excellent and worldly hosts, Brian an ex pilot and photographer and Therese a very accomplished artist, potter and pianist, both of who are extremely interesting and have a wealth of knowledge of the area to share. Breakfast, taken in Brian and Therese's home, were a delightful time during which to review the previous day's and the day's upcoming events with them. We certainly will recommend La Paquerie to friends and tripadvisor readers alike.

My husband and I recently stayed at La Paquerie which was a guest house carved into the hillside by the original owner. It is now adjacent to a charming house owned by Brian and Therese Morgan who go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. Even though we still had the chill of winter nipping at our heels, this was a quiet haven after 11 days in hectic Paris. I only wish we could have been there when the garden was in full bloom. Our hosts were charming and easy to communicate with and they sent us to great restaurants including one of our best meals in France at the Auberge de Launay in Limeray. We shared our bottle of champagne with them on their patio that overlooks the valley. Our cottage had its very own little patio and it was great to just sit, relax and watch their two cats chasing after birds. Once you got the hang of the nearby roundabout, it was a 5 minute jaunt into Amboise and the enchanting chateau of Chenonceau and others were very easy to get to. If you like the ambience of the French countryside and yet want to be close to Amobise, then I highly recommend this place. You will love dining in Therese and Brian's breakfast room and taking in all their lovely souvenirs from places they have lived all over the world. They are a well respected and loved couple in this part of the Loire and we were honored to share their home! Thanks Trip Advisor for recommending this place to us.

A great place to stay after a full day exploring the Loire.
This property is a B&B about 5 mins drive from Amboise. It is seperate from the proprietors dwelling and offers privacy.
The property is set high on a ridge which overlooks farms towards Amboise.
The location is ideal for sunset sippers - watch the hot air ballons and listen to the bird calls - Just the best!!!!!
The room consists of a large bedroom/sitting area and a generous bathroom all of which is tastefully furnished.
I should mention the room is located in a cave/troglodyte which adds to the ambience of the property.
The hosts Therese and Brian were very helpful with suggestions of what to do, see and where to eat.
We enjoyed our stay so much that we intend to return.
If you visit Chenonceau try Restaurant L'Orangerie - We found it outstanding and the price was reasonable.
