Luxurious rooms and superb table d'hôtes in rambling grounds by the Loire. A treat for couples who love good food, wine and conversation

Read guest comments

Monsieur's 'light and aromatic' dinners are paired with Loire Valley wines and served at Madame's beautifully dressed table. Risen gloriously from ruin, your hosts' 18th-century home hides in rambling grounds amid a duck-filled lake and 40 species of trees. Eclectic objects catch the eye in soundproofed bedrooms: a sculpted elephant, grandma's lace, ornate wallpapers, claw-foot baths. After dinner, there's billiards or cards by the fire, a piano and literally hundreds of recipe and wine books. (Inspired? They run cooking courses.) Borrow a bike and follow the Loire from this charming village to châteaux, gardens and lakes.
