This is a really beautiful chateau with amazing grounds not far from Amboise and well situated for discovering the Loire valley. Our room was beautifully furnished, warm and clean and the public rooms were fascinating. (Not so keen on the stuffed animals) As with many chateaus it shows signs of its age but is charming. The grounds are extensive and full of interesting sculptures and walks. The chateau gardens also contain 700 varieties of tomatoes as part of the National collection of tomatoes.
The Dahlia collection is immense too.
The only disappointment was with the lack of choice in food. The hotel offers one set meal in the evening eaten in the tea room / restaurant in the stables. Breakfast has to be preordered and is basic cereal, fruit and breads. Eggs are extra which sadly seems to have become commonplace on our journey this year.
Overall it was a lovely stay in unique and beautiful surroundings

Room tip: Ask for a superior room overlooking the garden.

We stayed for a total of 5 nights in late August/Early September.

Easily found, with plenty of parking.

Efficient reception staff speaking excellent English - just a little on the reserved/cool side. Perhaps a little jaded after a long/hot summer.

Fortunately (in our opinion anyway) this chateau has not been overly renovated and modernised, retaining all of it’s character and charm whilst being subtly brought up to date with the plumbing etc.

We stayed in two different superior rooms in the chateau itself - Charles de France and Diane de Poiters. Both were very spacious, clean and comfortable, with good quality bed linen. The bathrooms were large and well equipped - the former with a bath and shower cubicle and the latter with bath/shower above. Excellent shower water pressure. The former had a dual aspect over the grounds to the rear and the latter single aspect over the front of the chateau. We’d stay in both again. It should be noted that there were no in room coffee/tea making facilities or refrigerators.

Whilst it was sunny and hot (30) during our visit, the high ceilinged bedrooms were cool enough for us with the windows open and fans in use. There is no aircon.

The bar/lounge area was in character with the chateau and very comfortable. There is no bar as such, but drinks are served to order.

The simple breakfast that was served was to a basic standard with good quality components, but very overpriced in our opinion. We only took breakfast the once.

The evening meal (not on a Sunday) is served in the Tomato Bar, which is a couple of hundred yards walk away from the main building in the main garden area. The ‘bar’ is actually a lean to structure against a garden wall, with a variety of rustic tables and chairs arranged beneath an open sided gazebo type structure. The menu choice is simple - there is none - it’s a 3 course Plat D’ Jour. Good quality ingredients simply cooked in a ‘home’ style. The menu is a 3 day rotation - veal featuring twice. The location would not be pleasant in cool or inclement weather. We were aware that no meal would be available upon our Sunday evening arrival after a long day from the UK, so took the precaution of a cold box meal. However, in no uncertain terms were were instructed by Christelle the receptionist not to consume this (with a bottle of wine from the Chateau) in the lovely grounds or breakfast area - this had to be consumed in our room! Perhaps this was due to the grounds and garden being open to the public and ‘picnicking’ was clearly discouraged.

Visitors to the gardens/grounds are allowed to tour the chateau public rooms.

The chateau willingly booked an excellent ‘Sunday’ local restaurant for us - but this wasn’t any compensation as there were no taxis available and neither of us will drink and drive, so an excellent meal was sadly sans wine.

The formal tomato and dahlia garden was wonderful. The actual grounds were fascinating, with much thought and effort having gone into creating a mindfulness theme along the walkways through the ancient forest. The underground cellars and ‘caves’ were equally fascinating. Several hours were spent just wandering, exploring and appreciating the estate.

This review would be 5 star if only there were a proper restaurant on site.

Lovely Chateau hotel worth staying at - all a little dated from an infrastructure perspective, but affordable. Shame there is not a nice restaurant - the simple dinner in the vegetable garden with a single menu only is very mediocre - so eat elsewhere. Breakfast not great, but halfway ok.

What an amazing hotel.. We stayed here as part of a group in June and everyone came away absolutely blown away! A beautiful hotel that oozes charm and character. The larger rooms were like a fairy tale, and even the more normal rooms were fantastic, with exposed wood beams and lots of charm. If you are in doubt about whether to stay or not, do it! It is a special experience...

We are a family of four, two adults and two teens. The beds were uncomfortably hard and there is no air conditioning. It wasn't super hot outside so it was bearable. The paint is peeling off in various places and the bathrooms did not seem all that clean (some mold). On the plus side, the rooms are quiet and dark for sleeping. The grounds are absolutely spectacular and relaxing. The breakfast is also nice.
