The
Experience

Set back from the banks of the river Loire lies a château of character and charm, a perfect reflection of its owners. The Coady-Maguires are Irish, animated, delightful, and have many interests. Architect Jean Drapeau built the château in 1727 and the décor, traditional, authentic, captures the romance of that earlier age. Five bedrooms lead off an oak-beamed corridor and range from the dramatic (‘Louis XIII’ comes with a four-poster bed and bold colours) to the cosy and intimate. Antique armoires, ornate fireplaces and spotless bathrooms are yours, along with dreamy views of the large, enticing, tree-brimmed garden – note the lily-covered pond full of fish, the heated swimming pool, and the small, prospering vineyard. Snuggle down into deep-seated sofas with a book from the library or try your hand at billiards – it’s all super relaxed. There’s wine tasting next door, the market town of Saumur is a short jaunt up the river and the treasures of the Loire valley are legendary – you can visit the châteaux on horseback! We’d stay for the atmosphere and company alone.

Reviews

This was a beautiful Chateau on the banks of the Loire again full of antiques and very splendid. Despite having a large party to attend to Mary had time for us and made us very welcome, sitting with us after breakfast and taking the time to suggest good restaurants with a handy map. A lovely place to stay.

Jane

We were very warmly welcomed by Mary and served tea. Our huge bedroom was spacious & comfy with an excellent bathroom. Mary recommended a good restaurant just down the road, and pointed us in the direction of a lovely river side walk. Next morning, we much enjoyed freshly baked scones, croissants, fruit and yoghurt, shared with other guests around the huge dining table. Thank you Mary for the genuine welcome to your beautiful home.
