The Experience

Sweep up the wooded drive to the formal gardens and know you have entered an enchanting place. The graceful château sits in wooded splendour on the banks of the Cher – and you can see the river from some of the suitably châteauesque bedrooms. Bathrooms and bedrooms are equally sumptuous places to get ready before you head out to the local crêperie or for something more fancy.

Breakfast well – homemade preserves, fruit from the garden, eggs from the hens – on the wisteria-shaded terrace by the pool, or in the elegant dining room with an open fire for chilly days. Swim some laps in the pool, play billiards in the fab games room or just have a wander: it’s the most relaxed of places.

You’re in the heart of the Val du Cher, dotted with opulent aristocratic estates and historic towns – Amboise, Loches and Tours are all close. Borrow bikes and pedal off down La Loire à Vélo.

Thank you Nathalie, we enjoyed our stay with you so much, a wonderful last few days in France. A stunning Chateau, our room was very nice with wonderful views down to the river. Cycle rides by the river, wonderful walks, so much to do localy you need a number of days here to be able to enjoy it all. We will certainly be returning for a longer stay. 10 out of 10.

The neighbourhood

You're in a hamlet on the fringe of pretty Bléré which has shops, bars and restaurants. A little further is Amboise (11km) with its magnificent riverside Château d'Amboise and Le Château du Clos Lucé once home to Leonardo da Vinci, now open to visitors. Loches and Tours, both 27km, are lively, sophisticated places to visit. The elegant river-spanning Château de Chenonceau is a short drive.

Local points of interest from Nathalie Carli

  • Discover our vineyards, our cave and taste our wines.
  • Get on a bike and discover the scenery along the river Cher. You can access the river side directly from our house and ride through the Ambroise forest to reach the château de Chenonceau.
  • Enjoy our heated pool between 15 April and 30 September and our tennis court all year round.
  • You can fish in the river Cher directly from the pontoon of our property.
  • We are only a 30mn drive to visit the Loire Châteaux .
  • Hot air balloon rides can be arranged nearby


Nathalie Carli

Two families make the château and estate what they are today - Monsieur and Madame Carli are your hosts and Monsieur and Madame Corby produce the estate wine. They are supported by a super team who can arrange wine tastings, canoe trips and generally keep the place ticking over. Occasionally grown-up children and their children visit during the holidays.
