Gloria is a fountain of knowledge and helpful recommendations. The guests were very friendly and the grounds were very restful after a long journey. We couldn't have asked for more-except to...

We stayed in Collette, a beautiful room decorated in burgundy and cream toile. The breakfasts are a huge assortment of pastries, breads (some unique to the region), and best of all (I thought) French pressed coffee. Breakfast is served in the beautiful conservatory. Both Bob and Gloria are gracious hosts, and frankly, if there is something Gloria doesn't know about... More

We drove into their lovely gated Manoir, with beautiful gardens around the house. My daughter stayed in Madame Sevigne rooms (nice view of the garden), and we stayed in the George Sand room also with a view. The artwork throughout the house was tasteful, and pleasing. Everywhere you looked, was grace and artistry. The rooms were beautifully decorated, and quite... More

Le Vieux Manoir is a beautiful B&B. Gloria & Bob are wonderful hosts. Not only are they welcoming, they helped us find wonderful local restaurants in walking distance and the perfect chateaux tour. We learned so much about the area and its history from talking with Gloria and the other guests. Highly recommended!

As we entered the gate, we were pleasantly surprised to see a beautiful manor house. The entrance revealed pretty gardens and fountain. We were greeted at the front door by Gloria, who offered us a glass of wine almost immediately. What a great character she is. Sprinkled in our conversations she shared some of her varied life experiences and opinions.... More
