Nous avons passé un excellent séjour de deux nuits dans la suite Lodge en compagnie de notre enfant de 2 mois. L'accueil est parfait, le petit déjeuner est succulent (ah ce pain perdu on en a encore le goût dans la bouche) et la chambre est très propre, décorée avec goût. De plus le cadre et les environs sont très agréables. Une adresse que nous recommandons vivement.

We, 3 Belgian befriended couples, stayed at La Cave Margot during the Pentecost weekend, and we don't regret it at all. Nathalie and Nicolas are really charming hosts, who run their B&B in a very personal and professional way. We occupied the 3 rooms, and they are all very nicely decorated, fully equipped, comfortable and clean. The large garden is also well designed, with nice corners to play, to relax and to enjoy the sunshine. We also made use of their dining facilities, and Nathalie didn't disappoint us at all, she can cook ! La Cave Margot was a very good starting point for a motorcycle tour combined with visiting the beautiful castles in the Loire region. The private parking place was very welcome to securely park our motorcycles. So YES, we highly recommend this B&B and hope to return there in the future !
