My wife and I stayed there for three nights during the weekend a week ago. Words cannot express the hospitality, welcoming and goodwill of Didier and his wife. First of all Vouvray is close to all Loire Valley attractions, 25 minutes from Chambord from one side and 25 minutes from Villandry from the other side. Only 5 minutes from Tours.... More

Finely appointed rooms, quiet setting, warm welcome from the owners, full breakfast in the manoir's formal dining room, surrounded by the owner's ancestral portraits. We highly recommend this 18th century lodging with all the comforts of the 21st century for visiting the western part of... More

Run as a B&B, our room was both spacious and well appointed, a real bargain considering the reasonable room rates. The owner, Didier, daily presided over breakfast, with fresh breads, French pressed... More

This is an elegant house in Vouvray, dating from 1720 and managed by a descendent of the original owner. Our bedroom was spacious and beautifully furnished. Our large, modern bathroom looked as if it had just been remodeled. The owner, M. Baudard de Fontaine, speaks good English. We needed to use a telephone to change plans,due to a family emergency....

“Any rooms would be lovely. Take your own wine etc and enjoy the terrace with a view of the elm grove.”

“They are all different and good. One is at the back against the rock wall, and has no view at all, so may not suit: but the furnishings and fittings are the best, to make up for it.”
