“Very clean, good location, friendly folks”
Reviewed 15 November 2011

We flew into Tours airport with a private plane, and spent 2 nights at La Heraudiere. They are located halfway between the airport and the city centre, however you need at least a bicycle to go to the city center. The neighborhood is very quiet, which assures a excellent night rest. The house and rooms are great, matching the local environment, and the atmosphere makes you feel right at home. Breakfast was the best we've had in a long time.

If you are planning a trip to the Loire Valley, we highly recommend La Heraudiere! This quaint guest house is centrally located and the owners were delightful. The accommodations were impeccable and breakfast was wonderful including scrumptious breads, and the owners homemade yogurt and jams. Their Arabica coffee was the best we had in France!

The owners were very helpful and assisted us with recommended activities and restaurants. They even made reservations for us.

If you are looking for a central location to tour the Loire Valley, La Heraudiere is perfect!

Room Tip: All of the rooms were delightful. We had a upstairs room, as did the other couple we were traveling...

Our trip in late May had our party of 4 stay La Heraudiere as a base of doing day trips to Chateaus and vineyards in the Tours area. We were pleased with Location, downtown restaurants references, and breakfast was French style, no bacon and eggs as USA expected. The B&B and grounds were exceptional, just a pleasant way to unwind with a couple bottles of wine and cheese purchased from the local supermarket, which was a short drive from the B&B. Highly recommended....

The references were good, may be that raised our expectation too much? The lady of the house apparently doesn't know anything about hospitality, otherwise she should have shown it.
Her husband was absent, maybe that made all the difference? The rooms are cleaned only once every two days, without informing us in advance. The breakfast is less than a petit déjeuner, one croisant for the two of us! And some pieces of stock bread. Tea of lousy quality, without color and taste. She told us they were no hotel, however the room rate should let you expect something better. The location is o.k.

This review seems very strange to us!
These guests spent two nights in our Bed & Breakfast.
Their room was perfectly cleaned (as usual) before their arrival. When people stay several nights, we usually clean their room again every two days: isn’t that enough???
About the breakfast, we buy croissants, brioches and several kinds of bread from the baker early each morning, It is a true “French breakfast” (according to our website) with butter, homemade jams and yoghurts, fruit juices, coffee, chocolate and a large choice of brand name loose teas. Nonetheless some may not find the teas to their liking
A B&B is not a hotel, but you can ask for any special requirement if you need it.
For example with these guests, I answered in a friendly manner to their many questions and helped them find a good restaurant every evening. I gave them some cheese when they asked for it at breakfast. I even helped them … carry their luggage to their car when they checked out.

This is a very pleasant B&B. It is a meticulously restored farmhouse which has been clearly overtaken by suburbia. All amenities are clean, modern and appropriate. The ambience is unusually pleasant.
Our only gripe, which is minor, is that we were further out of town than expected and were therefore required to catch buses. That said they are cheap and regular, and the bus stop is close by.
