Looking for a true experience of French hospitality to share with our children, we came across Chateau du Vau through the Alistair Sawday website. What a good choice! Not a corporate business hotel, not an "over-designed" place where we had to worry about whether or not our children were quiet enough..Just a genuine family welcome, relaxed and unfussy. We loved...

We wanted to explore the Loire Valley nearby a larger city (Tours) but also some rest and possibiltiy to relax when 'coming home'. Chateau du Vau is definitely the place to go. Pleasant rooms in this old family house. LOVED (!) the atmosphere of a family history and kindness and helpfulness of Bruno Clement, the owner. The swimming pool is...

The chateau is located in green surroundings, on a working farm (we had a bit of trouble finding it, even with the gps). As someone else mentioned, it's got a sort of faded elegance about it. The rooms are cosy, nicy decorated in country style. On the negative side, we had one evening when there was no hot water...luckily the...

The Chateau de Vau itself is a charming building. The settings are lush and there are lots of beautiful places in the vicinity to discover, like the castles of Villandry or Ussé. The room itself was very nice, clean and the bathroom was in a perfect condition. I am quite picky about the bed, but even this exceeded my expectations....

If you are looking for a quiet and charming inn in the countryside with good access to the magnificent chateaux of the Loire, this is a great place. Rooms are large and comfortable with pastoral views of the beautiful foie gras farm. Nice little pool. Good breakfast (only meal served here) served at a large community dining room table. This...

As other reviewers have said, this chateau is in a peaceful location, with a great pool and large rooms. Breakfast is included in the price, very French - big bowls of coffee, croissants and jam. We loved our room, it was massive with an enormous, amazingly comfortable bed. This hotel is just outside Tours off the motorway, and I would...

During our trip through the Loire valley the Chateau du Vau surely was one of the highlights. Great surroundings & garden, historic flair and nice chambers plus a sympathetic host. The only downer was the relatively high room rate.

My wife thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chateau du Vau this past winter. M. and Mme. Clement were extremely hospitible hosts. Our room had been recently refurbished and was done in excellent taste as was the private bath. The chateau is situated on a working farm. It is managed by the owner's uncle and has a retail shop on the...
