“An amazing wedding venue, but beware French lack of flexibility”
Reviewed 31 August 2011

Our daughter loved her recent wedding at the Chateau. Pre-wedding barbeque was fun. The service in the chapel was beautiful, and Priest recommended by Chateau delightful.
We planned canapes and fairy lights outside after BUT cancelled because it might rain, so all crowded in upstairs. Wedding dinner was excellent, but arrangements for children were a disaster because of "No food in room" policy, so they hung round and baby sitter unable to withdraw to feed and amuse them.
After dinner NO FACILITIES for older guests to escape noise of disco - furniture and carpets removed from main salon, (which was then locked) and library only accommodates 6 people. No bar facilities were available and totally inadequate staffing meant older guests retired at 11.30 pm. Very disappointing end to lovely day.
Finally no mini bars and refusal to allow drinks in rooms or balconies meant very costly and inadequate facility for a casual bar drink at any time (served in main salon only)

Room Tip: All rooms are absolutely beautiful, but need tea making and mini-bar facilities.

Returned to the Chateau for our wedding, My previous reveiw says it all, but I will add that Francoise "est la dame marvellous", Francoise, Eric & Thierry worked so had the entire weekend, for our 26 guests, It felt like a real home for the weekend, we had the run of the chateau and an impromtue piano performance late into Sunday morning, although very out of tune, the piano not my friend, was great, the DJ "Joel" played accordion during the cocktail party as well which was fantastic, if your looking for a smaller wedding venue look no further contact them now. food 1st class, rooms 1st class, wine 1st class, see you next May for our anniversary

This chateau is a hidden gem - lovely grounds, well kept rooms, attentive staff, located in a quaint town in the Loire Valley. It's run like a B&B, but feels like a 5-star hotel. I wouldn't hesitate recommending it if you're after something special, but would add a word of warning - the food is very average. Grab dinner elsewhere and you'll be fine.

My sister, niece and I visited in at the end of May.
The roses were in full bloom and the grounds simply lovely.
We dined each night on delightful fresh food from
the local markets. The duck was bliss. The wines
were perfect.
I don't understand the reviewer from July.
The chateau is in perfect shape - not shabby-
And certainly not unclean.
I am very particular about germs.
There was no dirty coverlet on the bed or animal residue.
The bathrooms have high tech showers and scented milled soaps.
The rooms are large.
Guests have full use of salons and the library.
The elevator is quick.
While booking, their website also allows you to look in the windows of the chateau to view guest rooms and select what room you would prefer.
We found the staff very helpful and polite-
In fact, as we were arranging for the bags to be taken to
the room, my sister was off on a tour of the chapel and other sites
on the property - She was laughing and having a wonderful time with
the staff.
Perhaps the key is that we dressed for dinner and were prepared to have fun.
And, even though you are paying to be there, you respect that you are in someone's
chateau - Not the Holiday Inn or a Marriott.
Merci` Le Chateau Reignac-
We look forward to our next visit!

Each year I take my small group "Tours for Women' to France. Since finding this wonderful chateau 4 years ago,I return each year with the tour. My clients love it.

We are treated as friends. The food is good value and abundant, each room is decorated in a different theme, the village is tiny but interesting, the chateau's park has deer in it......The entire place is one I wish no one else knew about!

Contrary to a previous review - there is always someone on the premises! The owners live on the top floor, so help is always at hand.
This is not your average hotel - it is out-of-the ordinary.

Very friendly staff, nice rooms, historic, out of town location.
But..dinner was very ordinary - and no choice (but god wine), 7am churchbells a problem if you want to sleep.
Price for half board was 50 euro over the top vs. booking accomodation, dinner and breakfast separately.

Erick & Francoise, made us feel like royalty, nothing was too much trouble, even though they were putting finishing touches to a wedding on our day departure, we were given all the time in world.
We preordered our meal which was simply devine, the Vouvray sparkling wine was simply delicious, the food that was served was better than food served at michelin starred restraunts that we have frequented from time to time.
the village it's self so so quiet, we enjoyed a sandwich at the little cafe in the square, all the people we met in Regnac-sur-Indre were (like most French people we have met) very polite, put up with our poor attempts at speaking the language, and went beyond English levels of customer service.
Can not wait to return next year for longer.
