We had a perfect stay at Chateau de Fontenay which while billed as a bed and breakfast is more like a stay in your own private chateau. Unlike many properties on line the property is even better than the photos would suggest! We felt more like we were sharing the property with friends as we had access to almost all...

New Zealanders and Australians - if you are looking for accommodation in the Loire Valley you could do no better than stay in this wonderful castle on the outskirts of Blere. It was just fantastic. A beautiful home in the most gorgeous of settings and Nathalie and Phillipe were so willing to spend time talking with us about what their...

We stayed for three nights at The Chateau de Fontenay in November 2013 with our two year old son and loved it. This mansion is marvellous and the hosts are a lovely family full of attention for their guests. If you are used to hotels, this will be a (positive) shock in terms of the kindness of the guests. The...

This lovely home was a perfect place to decompress from a two week vacation in France. We truly felt welcome and at home in this gorgeous chateau with its beautiful country setting. The location was very convenient to the delightful town of Blere, and easy to get to many of the chateaux we wanted to visit. Our hosts were very...

We stayed two nights at the Chateau after ten days in Paris. It was like a decompression chamber. Nathalie and her family were more than gracious; they were kind. We learned so much about French culture and the area through easy conversations. The following reviews are all accurate. The Chateau and the property is grand, but this is first and...

My husband and I, as well as two friends, spent four lovely days and nights at Le Chateau de Fontenay. It was a magnificent springboard from which to visit the beautiful chateaux of the Loire valley. Le Chateau de Fontenay has been restored with care and elegance. The bedrooms are large and beautifully decorated with modern bathrooms. The breakfast, taken...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Le Chateau de Fontenay on our way to Calais after a holiday in the south. I had never been to the Loire Valley and it was absolutely beautiful. We arrived on a very sunny day and were greeted by Nathalie and one of her sons, Pierre-Olivier. Both were very welcoming and their english...

We stayed in La Maison du Boulanger, one of the self catering gites, with our three small boys. The gite is an easy drive from Calais and on arrival we were greeted by Philippe and Natalie, the owners who were charming. The house is located in the grounds of the Chateau and was spotlessly clean and light and bright. A...

The Fontenay castle is a perfect starting point to visit Chenonceau, Amboise, Tours, and other beautiful places by car or by bike (you can borrow bycicles on-site). It has a gorgeous entrée, spacious rooms, and a well-kept swimming pool. We were there with two little kids, and we all had a wonderful time. The host is very friendly and helpful,...
