The best place on earth” en Manoir de Chaix (Truyes, France)

4,6 Último comentario publicado el octubre 06, 2015

There is really no way to describe this place, this setting. A small little chateau with a huge heart. This is our 7th year going back to our French home away from home. Centrally located near, Amboise, Chennenceau, Tours, Chambord, and more, Manior de Chaix has something for everyone. Relax, check. Tours, check. Cycling, check. Small villages to visit, check. Great dinners, check. Fantastic breakfasts, check. In addition, large comfortable rooms. Dinner is a special treat because you never know who will be there nor from what part of the globe. A true cultural experience only highlights the evening plat du jour. Our hosts, Linda and Christian could not be more attentive to detail, and to the guests. They truly make this the place to stay when in Loire. So check this place out, check. You will come back "home" year after year.

Un séjour au top! en La Boissière (Les Hayes, France)

4,8 Último comentario publicado el septiembre 20, 2015

Nous avons passé un superbe séjour de 4 jours à la Boissière! Le temps n'a malheureusement pas été de notre côté mais Catherine s'est montrée très disponible et a tout fait pour que le séjour soit des plus agréables : petit-déjeuners avec des douceurs variées et faites maison, recommandations avisés sur les lieux à visiter de la région et les bons restaurants à tester,... nous nous sommes rapidement sentis comme chez nous! Pour ne rien gâcher au plaisir, le lieu est splendide : chambre superbe et très confortable, jardin joliment aménagé, piscine... A recommander!!

Don't Hesitate! en B&B Loire Valley, Castle (chateau) Herissaudiere (PERNAY, France)

5 Último comentario publicado el septiembre 17, 2015

My mother, sister and I spent 3 lovely nights in the Chinon Suite. Claudine could not have been more kind, welcoming and helpful. She gave us wonderful recommendations of places to visit and restaurants to eat delicious meals. The grounds are gorgeous! The pool was inviting! The room was spacious and charming and Claudine took great care to prepare the room for us daily. I can't begin to say how amazing breakfast was each day, but we looked forward to it every morning! Don't hesitate - stay at Chateau de L'Herissaudiere- you won't regret it! :)

Wonderful en Le Clos Rabelais (Langeais, France)

5 Último comentario publicado el agosto 27, 2015

The place was wonderful! We arrived as a family group with a small dog - my parents are 80 and we are in our 50's and we all felt very welcome and at home. Our little dog also had a great time and made friends with the resident spaniel!. We were offered a glass of wine on arrival and had a delicious breakfast - we would go out of our way to stay here again.

Charmant +++ en Le Clos Rabelais (Langeais, France)

5 Último comentario publicado el junio 16, 2014

After a long flight from New York City followed by a hectic drive from CDG airport, in Paris, we arrived early evening to the warmest of welcomes from Patrick and Shaun, each of whom immediately refueled us with liquid refreshments and hilarious conversation before guiding us to an excellent eatery nearby that provided some nourishing local fare. We quickly formed a strong bond with our hosts and chatted late into the evening before retiring to our super king size bed in the main suite upstairs. After a comfortable night's sleep, we awoke the following morning and came down to the elegant dining room to a bountiful breakfast, replete with excellent coffee, pain au chocolat, and fresh croissants served with a selection of Shaun's delicious homemade jams. Sadly, our itinerary was such that we were only able to stay one night at their beautiful house, as we were committed to getting to Vendoire by midday, but we are firmly resolved to return some day and for sure arrange a much longer visit, thus giving ourselves the opportunity to explore the nearby chateaus and vineyards...and spend more time in the company of our warmhearted and hospitable hosts, to boot. Thank you, Patrick and Shaun, for furnishing us with such sumptuous accommodations for our first BnB experience in France, and for initiating what I predict will prove to be a long lasting friendship between us all.

Must be one of the best B&B's in the Loire Valley en Le Clos Rabelais (Langeais, France)

5 Último comentario publicado el abril 21, 2014

We have just returned from our first visit to the Loire Valley in France and what a fantastic week we had, mainly down to the hospitality and friendliness of Shaun and Patrick at Le Clos Rabelais. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel completely at home, with home cooked meals to die for on two of our four nights and fresh coffee, croissants and pastries each morning. Our hosts showed us plenty of interesting places to visit in the area and the village of Langeais itself is a real find - typically French with a beautiful Chateau at the top of the main street and plenty of lovely cafes, restaurants, bars and shops - we easily spent a day wandering around the village and along the shore of the Loire before heading further a field. We highly recommend the area and are already planning our next trip back to stay at Le Clos Rabelais - Jackie & Richard

Perfect en La Boissière (Les Hayes, France)

5 Último comentario publicado el noviembre 19, 2013

We have spent three straight weeks in France during this summer, using this type of accommodation, and this one was the best of them all! The house is isolated in the calm fields of Loire valley, surrounded with a fantastic green garden. The rooms are really spacious and decorated with style. Good breakfast with great home-made cakes and pies. The hosts were extremely warm and helpful. We were travelling with a baby and they met all of our needs. We felt very welcome and relaxed, we hope to return!

Séjour de 3 nuits en Manoir de Chaix (Truyes, France)

4,8 Último comentario publicado el octubre 06, 2013

Pour une deuxième fois en 10 ans nous avons séjourné au Manoir. Cette fois nous étions deux couples et notre séjour fut de trois nuits. Même si l’accueil fut un peu timide, le service est excellent. Les chambres très bien rénovées, propres et nous recommandons le dîner sur place, qualité prix très abordable. La proximité des multiples emplacements à visiter (Châteaux, Loire) rende ce site particulièrement intéressant. Qualité prix aucune réserve. Au cours de notre voyage, nous avons séjourné dans plus de 10 chambres d’hôtes et nous donnons un 5 sur 5 à cet emplacement.

A Home Away From Home. A Place To Make Friends. en Le Clos Rabelais (Langeais, France)

4,4 Último comentario publicado el septiembre 08, 2013

As enchanting as is the Langeais/Loire Valley, the real reason to stay at Clos Rabelais is the hospitality. From the moment Shaun and his dogs welcome you and invite you in for glass of wine, you know you're in a very special B&B. Shaun goes out of his way to make sure you're not only comfortable, but thoroughly entertained. After a day of visiting castles and gardens, we relished the opportunity to socialize with other guests and Shaun and his staff offered a delightful sitdown meal one night that enabled us to leave town with great friendships. Highly recommended!

A wonderful experience en la Héraudière (Tours, France)

4,4 Último comentario publicado el junio 17, 2013

Dominique and Virginie Aubrun could not have been any better hosts. We were greeted enthusiastically and treated with respect. We felt appreciated and had several interesting, in-depth discussions on far-ranging subjects. The property is lovely - an old home that has been very tastefully restored. I can recommend La Heraudiere without hesitation!

Perfection en Le Clos Rabelais (Langeais, France)

4,8 Último comentario publicado el junio 17, 2013

Staying with Shaun was one of the best decisions we could have made. The experience, the room, the entire B&B were all perfect. When we needed to leave earlier than the normal breakfast time, they had a tray brought up to the room the evening before to make sure we had something (incredibly delicious) to eat in the morning. The place was incredibly clean and smelled wonderful. We stayed in the garden room, which was nice and out of the way, although doesn't have wifi in room, which was slightly disappointing. Overall, they get a 5/5 without a doubt.

Amazing B&B en B&B Loire Valley, Castle (chateau) Herissaudiere (PERNAY, France)

5 Último comentario publicado el mayo 30, 2013

This Bed and Breakfast in the Loire Valley is very convenient to numerous Chateaus. The house and grounds are large and magnificent. The furnishings are elegant and reflect a lifetime of collecting from around the world, and the home had an air of formality. The room and bath were quite luxurious. The proprietor was accommodating and helpful. She gave us good sight-seeing advice. The breakfast was very good with many homemade jams. We recommend this bed and breakfast.

“Chambres d'hôtes at its best” en Manoir de Chaix (Truyes, France)

5 Último comentario publicado el enero 07, 2013

The Manoir is chambres d'hôtes at its best and very reasonably priced too - treat yourself and you will want to go back, as we have frequently since discovering it many years ago. Sometimes we stay and visit the Loire and its beautiful chateaux, all the main ones are within easy reach from Truyes - don't miss Chenonceau, Azay, Villandry (amazing gardens), and not so well known, Montpoupon. Sometimes it's just an overnight stop to rest and prepare for tomorrow's journey. Always it is to enjoy their friendly welcome, relaxed atmosphere, charming rooms, delicious home-cooking, local cheeses, the multitude of home-made breakfast jams and of course, "a glass or two of Montlouis" - take some home, you can't buy it in the UK. Friends and family who have taken our recommendation all had a great time there and have either returned or plan to soon. The Manoir de Chaix is a place to savour and enjoy, again and again.

The best stop in Loir en Manoir de Chaix (Truyes, France)

5 Último comentario publicado el enero 07, 2013

We had the pleasure of staying at the Manior last Ocotober. With the weather near 80, we were able to take in most of the offerings of the region due to the proximity of Manior de Chaix. Chenonceau, Tours, Amboise are all close. Our hosts, Linda and Christian, could not have been more welcoming. The area is lovely, and the food is great. Almost everything that we had to eat was grown on the property. They even keep bees up the road for fresh honey. The rooms are "american sized" meaning very spacious. If you want to get away to a place that seems magical, head for the Manior de Chaix. Charming, genteel, wonderful food and fantastic hosts.

A recommander chaudement en Manoir de Chaix (Truyes, France)

5 Último comentario publicado el enero 07, 2013

Nous cherchions une chambre d'hôte sur le chemin du retour de vacances de Bordeaux à Bruxelles, un lieu d'étape dans une cadre traditionnel. Nous l'avons trouvé en consultant internet. D'emblée nous avons été conquis. Le cadre du manoir est superbe, situé dans un écrin de nature où l'on peut se promener à loisir. Les chambres sont très confortables et fort joliment décorées. L'ensemble de l'intérieur du manoir est très chaleureux. Et que dire de la cuisine ! Le menu de la table d'hôte fait de légumes du jardin potager et de produits de la région est succulent. Le petit déjeuner où le jus de fruit frais (ce qui est trop rare dans les chambre d'hôte ou dans les hôtels) accompagne une collection impressionnante de confitures faites maison et plus délicieuses les unes que les autres vous permet de commencer idéalement la journée. Francis et Christian (souvent aidé de Linda) cherchent sans cesse de nouvelles idées pour vous rendre le séjour encore plus agréable. Ils connaissent à fond la région et ne manquent pas de suggestion sur les visites et promenandes à faire. Il est vrai que la région est inépuisable et que la situation du manoir de Chaix rend les choses plus facile. Nous sommes déjà retourné plus d'une demi-douzaine de foix à Chaix, et plus seulement pour une nuit. Ce fut chaque fois un séjour d'enchantement. Incontestablement, une adresse à recommander sans hésitation. Attention, cette adresse commence à être connue. Il vaut mieux réserver longtemps à l'avance.

Simply Perfect en Manoir de Chaix (Truyes, France)

4,4 Último comentario publicado el enero 07, 2013

My family and I have been visiting the Manoir for the last 15 years, returning to see our friends Linda, Christian and Francis, and to continue exploring an area of France which we love. Inside and out, the Manoir is the most perfect place to stay in the Loire, and excels every time. From a warm welcome through to a delicious home-cooked evening meal, fresh with produce from the lovingly tended garden and excellently cooked by Christian, to the comfortably furnished and spacious rooms, the Manoir caters for every requirement. And then there's the plentiful breakfast with more types of exciting jams than you could imagine! It is ideally located in a secluded spot with surrounding woods to explore, and yet perfectly situated for easy access to some of the best châteaux of the region. A home to return to every time :) I have recommended this location to numerous friends and acquaintances over the years and will always continue to do so.

Homelike charm en La Tonnelle (Vouvray, France)

5 Último comentario publicado el octubre 02, 2012

Mme. Duchateau could not be more welcoming and helpful. No two rooms, off winding stairs, are alike. When you sit down to meals at the large kitchen table, facing the stone of the hillside into which the home nestles (La Tonnelle is one of the many "troglodyte" structures in the region, carved partially right out of the stone), under Mme. Duchateau's impressive collection of Moroccan ceramics, or under the arbor for which the chambre d'hote is named, the 100-year-old grapevine heavy with grapes, you are family. It's a warm, informal introduction to the real life of the area.

A Wonderful Experience en la Héraudière (Tours, France)

3,6 Último comentario publicado el septiembre 15, 2012

My wife and I spent a few nights here in Sept. 2012. The inn was very nice. The service was outstanding. The food was tasty as expected. A word on the service. I developed a medical problem which affected my mobility. I did not have any of my medication with me. Dominique noticed my sever limp and inquired about it. After my wife explained what the problem was, Dominique called the local pharmacy and arranged for me get my prescription filled (much cheaper in France than in the US by the way). This was a proactive service effort that really helped us enjoy the rest of our time in Paris - more so than if Dominique had not helped out. Thanks again Dominique. Dominique and Virginie were very pleasant and attentive. They were readily available but not intrusive. John Crooms USA I highly recommend this cozy establishment.

Fabulous home from home en Le Clos Rabelais (Langeais, France)

4,6 Último comentario publicado el septiembre 02, 2012

Gat location. Walking distance to Langeais with its chateau. Lots to do near by including Villandry. It is clear that Patrick and Shaun love running a B&B because there are all sorts of thoughtful touches that make guests feel at home. The rooms are beautifully finished and every comfort provided. There is a fabulous room with a T V where guests can relax and courtyard where we ate dinner under a Kiwi vine. Shaun was a great host and we would highly recommend Le Clos Rebelais.

Acerca de Tours

Tours está construida sobre el emplazamiento de una antigua ciudad romana, y se convirtió en un importante centro de la cristiandad en el siglo IV con San Martin, obispo de Tours. Durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial sufrió considerables daños y las clases medias fueron abandonando el centro histórico y éste se convirtió en un barrio pobre. El valle del Loira es famoso por sus suntuosos castillos, reliquias de regios tiempos y que hoy es rico tanto en historia como en arquitectura. Y Tours, por su céntrica situación, cultura y exquisita cocina es la capital natural de esta región para todos los visitantes.

La peatonal Plaza de Plumereau, situada en el corazón medieval, es la zona más animada. Algunas calles, como la de Briçonnet, ostentan fachadas entramadas, patios interiores e inclinadas torres. Cerca de aquí, se alza la románica Torre Charlemagne, lo único que se conserva de la primera Iglesia de San Martin. Al oeste queda el barrio de los artesanos, uno de los más elegantes en la actualidad y junto a la famosa calle comercial del Petit St-Martin. La Catedral de St-Gatien, al este de la ciudad, es impresionante sobre todo por sus vidrieras medievales y su fachada gótica que fue iniciada a principios del siglo XIII y terminada en el XVI.

Tours posee varios museos muy curiosos, entre ellos el de Bellas Artes que ocupa el antiguo palacio arzobispal y el Hotel Goüin, que es considerado el edificio renacentista más hermoso de la ciudad y que fue la vivienda de un mercader de seda y ahora está destinado al Museo de Historia de Turena.

La gastronomía típica de esta ciudad es muy variada, por una parte sus ricos suelos aluviales producen suculentas verduras y frutas, además de gruesos champiñones que se cultivan en bodegas junto a la orilla del rio. Tierra adentro, las vacas producen rica leche para la nata, el queso y la mantequilla. Entre sus platos más conocidos se encuentran los rillettes, trozos de carne cocinados con manteca, troceados y guardados en conserva. El cordero asado y servido acompañado de alubias estofadas con tomate, ajo y cebolla también es muy consumido en la zona.

Las tentadoras casas rurales de Tours además de alojamiento le ofrecen suculentos menús a base carnes de caza, pescado y abundantes verduras frescas que pueden degustar lentamente junto con un blanco de Vouvray o un Bourgueil con mucho cuerpo.
