We spent two short days in Loches, a beautiful village in the Loire valley. The Maison de l'Argentier du Roy was our gem of a bed and breakfast, hosted by Christine and Philippe, a couple who clearly love the area, love their home, and have spent an enormous effort to share their hard work with their guests. We had a...

This three night stay was memorable. This restored 15th century house sits under the walls of the Chateau and overlooks the Jardins Public. Our wood panelled room was tastefully appointed, charming and comfortable. Behind one of the panels was a turret with our shower. Our room looked down at a beautifully manicured garden. Phillipe and Christine are marvellous hosts. Christine...

My husband and I chose Loches for our home base in the Loire Valley as it is centrally located but not as busy/touristy as Amboise. I am so glad we did. Loches is a lovely village with plenty of history of its own. La Maison de l'Argentier du Roy was hands down the best place we stayed in our 2...

La Maison is a fantastic well-restored 15th century mansion, lovingly redone by Phillips and Christine. Perfect location for exploring the Loire on a "hub and spoke" basis. We were easily able to drive to the various chateaux. Access by car is by a very tiny narrow gate in the walls but there is private parking. Our "garden room" was a...

This review is long overdue. My husband and I stayed at La Maison de L'Argentier du Roy in late August and were not disappointed.

We stayed here for our honeymoon for the 3 days we were in the Loire Valley. Our innkeepers Phillipe and Christine were warm and welcoming.
