La Cave Margot

Lunay, Loir-et-Cher
Bed & Breakfast

Stylish family-friendly B&B with sauna pod & jacuzzi outside. Near the stunning cave villages and the Loire Valley castles and vineyards


5 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 5


The approach is pretty, along a green open valley, the family is charming, and the house is an immaculate longère. Bedrooms are large, inviting and contemporary, with original features and superb bathrooms. Two open to gardens and terrace, one is up an outside stair overlooking an ancient walnut tree, one overlooks the troglodyte caves and the last is a large wooden kota set among pine trees. For families, couples and seekers of peace: billiards, books, a warming wood-burner and communal kitchen. Table d’hôtes is great fun and dinners are delivered with enthusiasm and imagination; Nathalie grows organic vegetables for savoury crumbles and Nicolas loves his wines.

Delightful stay. We can't recommend this place enough, because everything was in perfect state, clean, beautiful spacious. N&N were tremendously welcoming and fun. We felt very grateful for finding the place and hope to return, especially when our daughter is a bit older so she can enjoy the jacuzzi and sauna, too!

What a beautiful property and what delightful hosts, helping to make our stay in the Loire so special and memorable. It was perfectly set up for our family, with 2 young children (ages 5 and 3), with plenty to keep them occupied in the grounds and gardens. Our room was beautifully appointed and was a great set up for a young family. The local lake beach was also a big hit, and a bit of a god-send in mid August. A huge thanks to Nathalie and Nico for making it such a wonderful week. Special thanks to Nathalie for preparing an incredible celebration meal for my 40th birthday!

I can’t recommend La Cave Margot highly enough. We spent three nights there as a base to explore the Loire en route to southern France. It suited our family perfectly. Beautiful, well equipped room - spotlessly clean. Great family friendly facilities: guest kitchen, jacuzzi, table tennis, playground trampoline etc. Wonderful breakfasts. Friendly, helpful, relaxed hosts. Warm/welcoming, well equipped, well considered, relaxed and beautiful. Fantastic!

Andrew, Dublin

I honestly cannot put into words how fantastic this place is. I took my toddler to stay here. Travelling with a toddler is not easy but when presented with the most exquisite communal kitchen and hosts to die for you cannot go wrong. We were able to feed my little boy using facilities you can only dream of in your own home, bath him and to bed so we could relax for the evening. The food trays were the most incredible 3 course meals, food to remember. Nathalie and Nicolas are the nicest, most accommodating hosts, they made our trip for us. A home from home and much more. We’ll be back!

We had a fantastic 12 night holiday at La Cave Margot. We were looking for somewhere special to take our daughter for her first holiday and Nathalie and Nicholas helped to make it an amazing trip, they were wonderful hosts and Nathalie is an amazing cook, offering a home made breakfast and evening meals on request. We stayed in the Atelier apartment. The room was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The communal kitchen was a great addition which we used most days and was again spotless. The grounds were amazing, lots to do for kids including table tennis, a trampoline and swings.

Laura, London

We knew we’d chosen the right place when we arrived, hungry and tired late on a Sunday evening, to find Nathalie had prepared quiche and chocolate fondants for us. We stayed 7 nights over Easter - our children played rugby and trampolined with our hosts’ kids, we visited chateaux and pretty towns, and enjoyed each delicious breakfast! The accommodation was spotless and chic, the new communal kitchen a great addition and the hosts were friendly and genuinely keen to make sure our holiday was perfect. Highly recommended.

Heather, Belfast

We had an absolutely fantastic stay at La Cave Margot. The term B&B doesn't do this place justice - it felt more like a luxury hotel but hosted by an extremely friendly, welcoming family. The accommodation was very chic & spotlessly clean (the photographs are very accurate). Our family of 4 found the Orangerie Suite very spacious and comfortable. The garden is a child's dream come true - zip wires, large trampolines, hammocks, table tennis and more. Nathalie was v. knowledgeable re restaurants & day trips, and the food was delicious. This place is a hidden gem, would highly recommend.

Lucy, Harpenden

What a special place and so perfect for our family. We drove straight from Calais with our 3 small kids to a HUGE magical garden with zipwire, trampoline, donkeys, sandpit + toys. We stayed in I'Orangerie - huge bedroom for us and another lovely room for the kids, the rooms so comfy and beautifully done. Natalie and her family were so kind and friendly. She made us a very special family birthday supper on the terrace - absolutely delicious food. This place is a true find, right in the middle of the Loire with wonderful Chateaus to visit nearby and so many vineyards! We will definitely return

Sarah, London

An amazing B and B. Delightful hosts Nathalie and Nicolas made us feel very welcome and looked after us very well. The Orangerie exceeded our expectations. Beautifully designed and furnished to a very high standard. The breakfasts were the best we have had at any of the many B and B's we have used before. Will definitely go back and highly recommend it.

Nina, Somerset

Excellent Guest House, very friendly and helpful hosts. We had an evening meal which was very good and the breakfasts were superb, both meals included home made and produced products which were very good.

David, Staffordshire.

One of the best French B & B's we have stayed in. Large upstairs room and bathroom. Lovely garden to sit and unwind on our way down to SW France. Natalie, our host was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. Supper outside with other guests was superb. All together a very good start to our holiday. Fabulous, can't recommend it highly enough.

Lucy, Taunton

I cannot recommend this B&B highly enough. It is absolutely wonderful, the attention to detail in the rooms is excellent. We stayed in the Orangerie suite, this accommodated us being 2 adults and 3 children. It was extremely spacious and well equipped. The hosts at this property are exemplary and make the B&B what it is, they think of everything and go the extra mile for every guest. Nothing is too much trouble and they are constantly working to keep the B&B in the best condition. It was well placed to visit surrounding areas each within about 30-90 mins distance. We will definitely return.

Gayle, Billingham

We stayed at La cave Margot for one night to break the journey from the Languedoc to Ouistreham. Nathalie and Nicolas were warm and welcoming. Our bedroom was large and cosy, spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished and we had our own sitting room and luxurious shower room. The breakfast of "eggy bread", homemade granola, yogurt, cheese and much more was delicious. We enjoyed talking in French and English with the very friendly hosts and we would have loved to stay for longer to explore the beautiful local area. We would definitely visit La Cave Margot again

Karen, Broughton astley, leicestershire

Everything about this B&B is special. We went as two families with 5 children under 7 and they were wowed by la Cave Margot as much as we were. The farmhouse conversion has been delivered with taste and style and the rooms are all very spacious and luxurious. It is a place were adults feel they are staying somewhere special yet there is endless entertainment for the children, not to mention feeding the donkeys ! The breakfast was delicious and Nathalie and Nicolas are great fun and perfect hosts.
