We arrived quite late but were welcomed by Bernard who showed us to our room and then prepared a quick supper for us. next day breakfast on the Veranda was magic as the sun was shinning. We had a tour around the surrounding area and returned to the chateau early evening where the gastronomic meal we had ordered was being prepared,I can honestly say that was one of the best evenings I have had,Thank you so much Chateau de Challain for opening your home to us.

What a great little find this place was! It's in central Saumur, around 15 minutes walk to the chateau but the house is on a quiet road and is very peaceful. David and Vincent's home is lovely, clean, bright and comfortable. Both of them are very friendly and great hosts - and Vincent is a chef so if you elect to have an evening meal there, you can be assured of a tasty treat. There is a secure garage if, like me, you are travelling by bike. Both hosts are both very accommodating and welcoming - for example you can put a load of washing on if you need to. They have a pool table and British/US TV channels if that's your thing. It was an excellent stay, exceptional value for money and I would definitely return if I'm in the area again. Go!
My Wife and daughter stayed with David for one night while watching a horse competition. David and his partner were absolutely perfect hosts. The B&B was immaculate and faultless, the breakfast was superb. They also provided a very reasonably priced and excellent evening meal. We have taken a stack of business cards to give out to friends as we are going to highly recommend their place as a perfect stop over. The town itself is also stunning and well worth a weekend visit. Thank you both we shall be returning at some point for a weekend break
