A charming 16th-century manor house in the centre of the village with a shady courtyard and a winding track leading to woodlands and vineyards. House and garden are an exuberant mix of formal and informal, contemporary and traditional. Steps and pathways entice you through a series of ‘secret’ gardens, doorways cut in high hedges offer intriguing glimpses of the Loire valley. Rooms are a delight, furnished with simple understated elegance to fully show off the character of the house and the breakfast room is serene with a low, beamed ceiling. Great breakfasts, delightful hosts; even the pool is special.

Beautiful castle near Ambroise. Full of History. The host was very kind. The spacious room, with a large bathroom. The place is calm and well decorated.Very good breakfast with local products, in a beautiful room with a fireplace. We recommend it.

Sandrine, Paris

Beautiful place, set on a steep hillside with views across to Amboise in the distance. Room (Olivia) large with a small shower room and separate toilet. Breakfasts excellent, summer kitchen with fridge and barbecues available for guests use. Amboise within easy reach, good choice of retaurants. Owner speaks excellent English if you need it, and is very informative about the history of the Chateau. Loire valley and all its delights on the doorstep.

Carol, Northwich

Chateau de Nazelles is a beautiful place to stay, and Veronique and her family were extremely welcoming. Veronique recommended a very good restaurant for dinner (and pointed us in the direction of the degustation in the morning!). We stayed in one of the rooms carved into the rock, which was very spacious and tastefully decorated with a fabulous bathroom. This is a magical chateau in a stunning setting, with plenty of room given over to guests including kitchen facilities and a large lounge. Breakfast was delcious, especially the local honey! We hope to return!
