It’s an interesting place to stay, close to Chinon. Helpful owner who speaks good English. Was surprised however, by the need to pay for electricity- not mentioned before we arrived. Also, the upstairs toilet is a masserator (not made clear in Chateau description) and makes an awful noise, at night this is a little inhibiting.
Near to Chinon with views of the town, the converted 'Pigeonnier' with a private garden area within the grounds of Chateau De La Vauguyon is very special. Spacious and well presented, and an excellent base from which to explore this wonderful region. Celian Duthu, the owner was extremely helpful with good advice of places not to miss. It is certainly a Gite to recommend and one we hope to visit again.
Our stay at the round tower of the castle of Vauguyon was majestic.
In a quiet, medieval environment with great view we enjoyed having a modern equipment. With our dog we could hike in the near beautiful nature.
By car we visited the castles of the Loire. From our bedroom window and our garden we almost could touch dozens of deer. Fabulous.
We (wife and 7 yo) stayed in the dovecoat for a week and had an exceptional time. The chateau was lovely - very quiet and relaxing. It was a great base to explore all the nearby chateau and wineries. The host was engaging and very informative. Would love to stay here again.
