Having lived in France, having traveled throughout France and having been a French travel advisor for over 40 years, I can attest to some of the more enjoyable places to stay in this beautiful country.
The DOMAINE DE BIDAUDIERES is among the finest get-aways.
With its location in the heart of chateau country, one has easy access to the history, architecture, scenic beauty and fine cuisine and wines of the Loire Valley. The backroad drives provide an entrance into a fabled area.
The Domaine's large, cheerful and very comfortable rooms overlook terraces, a
lovely pool and the countryside while the grand stairway (or an elevator if one
prefers) leads to the plant-filled windowed breakfast room where the morning table is a perfect way to begin a day of relaxation and/or exploration.
There is also a Troglodyte apartment in the great cliffs backing the chateau - ideal
for a family. How many people can say that they stayed in a cave?
With the serenity of the area, the accessibility to nearby activities, the greatest asset of Bidaudieres is the gracious, enthusiastic and totally charming hostess,
Sylvie Suzanne. How welcome one feels immediately upon meeting her. She
makes the stay even more memorable.
I have just returned from a three night stay and wish that it could have been
longer. The unrushed visitors, the uncrowded roads, the no-wait lines, al fresco
dining against a tapestry of autumn colors gave our small group a sense of time-
