The Loire Valley is the historic heart of France. Its mild, pleasant climate, stirring history, noble architecture, fine wine and food combine in a perfect expression of French art de vivre. Our three luxury chambres d'hote are an excellent base from which to explore the area - or to spend the night if you are passing through.
