A treat! Lively, intelligent conversation, good food and music in elegant surroundings. The Du Garreaus love sharing their fine 19th-century townhouse with its big bosky garden, and helping guests discover the riches of Touraine and the Loire Valley. Bright, serenely stylish bedrooms, with excellent bedding and bathrooms, are a seamless blend of period and modern (two inter-connect). The table – outdoors or in – is beautifully dressed for friendly meals focused on regional and homemade food. Children can eat separately and romp safely; there’s an enticing, enclosed pool to look forward to – after a châteaux-cycling day?
