Les Chateau de Fontenay is everything you would expect and so much more. We had a fantastic couple of days made all the more special by the hospitality of the owners, Nathalie and Philippe. The Chateau itself and the grounds are simply stunning and retain all of their rural charm. They recommended places to see and where to eat and...

On a Loire Valley car tour with two other couples. Stayed for 3 nights with our host Nathalie at Chateau de Fontenay and wish we had booked longer. Perfect location, grounds, hosts, facilities, rooms. Really cannot be faulted and we all agreed this was a special place and the highlight of our trip.

Le Chateau Fontenay celebrates all that makes a visit to the Loire beautiful. The Chateau is inviting and becomes home in an extraordinary setting made special by Nathalie. The stunning grounds include vineyards, views of the Cher, walking trails, pool, and much more. The room we stayed is spacious, and very comfortable. The breakfast is simply superb with jams and...

So many thanks to hosts Natalie and Phillipe for a memorable, relaxing and friendly time. An amazing effort to resurrect this beautiful Chateau, we stayed within the main house. It's fitted out with attention to detail, with decor fitting the period and yet with all the modern conveniences. We used the bikes, the pool, the grounds and had to have...

Le Chateau Fontenay exceeded our expectations. My daughter and I stayed for in the Cupidon room for two nights this February. The chateau has been lovingly restored and expertly maintained. We would have liked to stay longer. We began each day with a fabulous French breakfast; croissants, bread, homemade jams, cake, fruit, honey made from hives on the property, fresh...

We stayed here in mid September on the recommendation of relations who live near Paris. We were made very welcome by the owner Nathalie and her family (including a very intelligent and friendly dog Choco). We were accomodated in one of the buildings adjacent to the Chateau, 'La Closerie', which has been converted in to a self contained 'Gite'. We...
