We spent a week chez Monica and it was pleasant and relaxing. Her English is excellent and her attention to detail very professional. The pool is great and the surroundings allow you to relax. It's a great base from which to tour the Loire, but, equally, you can simply lie back and enjoy.

The house is overall charming and has a big garden with a trampoline, and a swimming pool in front of a little cottage. However I regretted not going for some other place. I don't have high expectations on B&Bs in terms of facility, but friendliness of the host/hostess is very important, since you get to interact with him/her more than... More

As other reviews have mentioned, the one drawback of Prieuré La Chimère is the location of the bathrooms outside of the bedrooms, but each room does have its own private bathroom. This was a great "chambres d'hôte" for a family. The kids enjoyed the heated pool, yard, trampoline, and the toys in the play area. We enjoyed a dinner here... More

Well, actually Prieure La Chimere is not a B&B as Americans understand it. It includes table d'hote, which means your hostess prepares an evening meal that you may share with other guests, for an additional fee. This turned out to be a high point for us because we got good, if very simple, food and the company of friendly and... More

“We stayed in Le Chalet, which gives straight on to the pool. It's basic accommodation, but big enough for two [with a small dog].”

“Ask for 'Indres Gallantes' and the bathroom just outside your door for most convenience, plus a little balcony overlooking the garden.”
