Jerome and Charlotte are amazing hosts, always very welcoming, generous and helpful. The wine tasting evening, Dinner and last night Barbecue are a great way to socialise with fellow guests and of course Jerome and Charlotte. Jerome is always pleased to help out with wine tours or wine tastings so you can find your favourite wine from the area. We...

We spent our fourth consecutive summer holiday at Loire Valley Retreat this year. It's the perfect location for families with children (our boys are 8 and 5). The kids love the space and freedom they have to run around in the courtyard and fantastic garden (this year with the new addition of a teepee) and they also like making new...

My family and I spent a week at Loire Valley Retreat in August this year. We stayed in La Boulangerie which was just perfect for a family of 4 with 2 teenagers. The property was home from home with everything we could have asked for, from lovely towelling dressing gowns to a proper coffee machine. The air conditioning was a...

Returning to Loire Valley Retreat last week honestly felt like a wonderful trip visiting old friends. Our whole family adore the Chateau, a hub of children and animals that above all manages to be peaceful and relaxing. We were slightly concerned that repeating the same holiday one year after the first might mean the days out were a bit repetitious,...

We have been to Loire Valley Retreat twice and had such a fantastic time both times that we are going back again. Charlotte and Jerome are so welcoming and the evening meals they put on really make the week special. The place is so peaceful and relaxing for parents and the children had so much fun playing with the other...

We chose to spend a week summer holiday in Loire Valley Retreat partly based on the previous reviews, but Charlotte and Jerome surpassed all our expectations. We were looking for a 'villa holiday' with some amenities, but we weren't expecting the incredibly warm welcome we received and everything else that went with it. Charlotte, Jerome, and their children made our...

It is a very rare treat to be so warmly welcomed into a magnificent building, one of dreams, but to feel instantly at home, is something else. Loire Valley retreat is a hidden gem. 5 minutes from a great supermarket, 7 minutes from the most beautiful medieval town of Chinon, yet invisible from the quiet road carved through the sunflower...

We love Loire Valley Retreat, having just returned from our third stay there. It is a perfect place for a family holiday. The kids (aged 5 and 3) loved playing outside in the courtyard with the toys, on the lovely slides and sandpits and with Jerome and Charlotte's charming children. As parents we love the beautiful chateau and the surroundings,...

We had an absolutely fantastic stay here for one week in July 2016. The photos and website don't do this place justice. It's a beautiful property situated in a very lovely setting. We stayed in the Boulangerie Gite. The Gite is bright, clean, modern and very comfortable. The breakfast is an elaborate spread with fresh bread and croissants, eggs, meat,...

I stayed here with my wife, 11-month old son and mother-in-law for a long weekend in June. The welcome was friendly, the accommodation was spacious, modern and clean, and the setting - aside a French chateau - was incredible. For children, there is a play room, a pool and an outdoor play area. For adults, there is a wine cave!...
