The river's gentle flow sets the tone for a relaxing stay in this peaceful Loire estate: quiet rooms, sweet village, dinner with Madame

Cross Monfort's exquisite stone bridge to this pretty house on the banks of the river. Enter the grounds and forget the world in heavenly peace among very old trees. Gentle Madame saved it all from ruin and gives you two comfortable rooms upstairs, privately off the courtyard, both with fine armoires. The suite in the old stables (salon below, bedrooms above) has a charming late 18th-century feel. There are delicious jams at the big table for breakfast and a family salon for guests. You can visit the lovely, unsung villages and vineyards of the Sarthe. For children? Forest animals at Pescheray and an aquapark in the village.

"My wife and I were delighted by the welcome and and the room which was very cosy, comfortable, quiet and with a nice view on the old bridge. Moreover we took dinner at her place and it was a marvel: a dinning room like in a château, delicious home made meal served with a top noch service. Geat experience and we greatly recommend this person and the place. "

"This was our second visit to Chantal Paris' delightful chambre d'hote - we received a warm welcome and had a lovely peaceful two days. Two delicious evening meals, good advice on visiting Le Mans and especially on where to park for free. The view from our window over the Pont Romain was just as delightful as two years' ago. We will surely return for a third time!"

"Chantal gave us a lovely welcome to her amazing house – an old mansion she has rescued. It’s large, rambling and a work in progress. Our room was lovely – a good size overlooking eponymous bridge with a well appointed shower room. The bed was nice and firm and made with genuine thick linen – gorgeous! We had an excellent dinner in a grand dining room - carrot soufflé and cod stuffed with soft cheese and chocolate mousse. Breakfast next day was fresh baguettes and fab butter from farm up road, quince jelly – must be her own – and miel from little old man. All for 112Euro – a steal."

"Our 3rd visit and it only gets better. Beautiful room and wonderful meal enjoyed with German couple who couldn't speak highly enough of their previous visits. Will definitely be back"

"A B&B full of character, history and charm. Mme Paris made us feel very welcome and produced the most delicious five course dinner for a very reasonable price. We would stay with her again."

"The initial part of our journey was very stressful for several reasons, so it was particularly relaxing to have a change of pace as soon as we stepped into the Maison du Pont Romain. Madame is a marvellous cook; four courses (with much of the produce coming from the garden), together with a delicious bottle of wine put everything to rights. Lovely room with views over the river. We were driving down to Bordeaux and it was a perfect half way spot."

"We made an overnight stop here in the middle of a heatwave on the way to Brittany. Arriving exhausted from the heat, we discovered a charming village, a beautiful old house full of character and a huge garden, more of a park, where we were made welcome by Chantal's mother, busy gardening. The room was large and airy, overlooking the river. We were made very welcome and given a delicious meal, specially prepared for coeliacs (no gluten), with a home-made gluten free fruit tart! This was very much appreciated. A good breakfast sent us on our way in the morning. Highly recommended."

"excellent, Madame was very welcoming and produce a beautiful 4 course dinner, probably the best we have had in a Sawday to date, and delightful breakfast with home made jams. Highly recommended."
July 2013
"We stayed overnight on our way to La Rochelle. Chantal made us very welcome and the house was full of old charm and character. Our room was very comfortable and clean and overlooking the river. That evening Chantal cooked us a delicious meal, which was greatly appreciated. The next morning, we had an excellent breakfast."

"Our first trip driving from London - then on the ferry company which went bust that very day - was longer and more tiring than expected but we couldn't have found a cosier, cleaner place to stay.Another review says the rooms are simple but I loved the style. Chantal was very relaxed about our late arrival and had prepared a delicious meal. Highly recommended place to stay."
November 2011
"Very attractive property, location and village. Chantal Paris is a warm, welcoming person. Very good dinner and breakfast. Altogether, a very relaxing stay after a day's travelling and we would go back."
August 2011
"Four of us had a lovely stopover here. Situated just by the bridge the garden goes on for ever following the river, with scattered garden seats, a veg patch, chickens and rabbits. Just a shame that the weather was on the rainy side. The rooms were simple but very comfortable, with the lovely sound of the river outside the window. Chantal was a charming host, and her cooking was lovely, another high point. Highly recommended."

"Our return visit was worth a detour. Beautiful room newly refurbished and very enjoyable meal. Good company of other guests at breakfast"
