The
Experience

Up a quiet lane, embraced by woodland and fields, an exceedingly fine manor house with dovecot, orchard, barn, pool and flourishing potager. Friendly Dominique welcomes you in, and treats you to a wonderful table d’hôtes. Spacious beamed bedrooms – four reached via a stone turret stair – are full of traditional comfort, and the dining room is inviting, with blazing logs, light-flooded windows and a great big convivial table. This is the Loire and there are châteaux by the hatful: Chenonceaux, Loches, Amboise, Azay le Rideau, Villandry. A great find, and good value.

Reviews

We had a wonderful 10 day stay. Dominique and Pascal are the friendliest hosts. The breakfast and evening meals are delicious and plenty to eat. A very relaxing stay with the pool and lots of local walks. The location is ideal , there are several gardens and Châteaus in a 40 minute car drive and some closer. If we can will return

Ruth, Pembroke

Stayed at this lovely place on our way back up through France, sadly for just the one night, wish it could have been more. Quiet, peaceful and glorious setting and a very comfortable, spotlessly clean room with beautiful views, reached by a stone staircase within the turret. Dominique and Pascale were warm, wonderful hosts and we sat down to a table d'hote laden with salad and vegetables from the garden, roast beef, a platter of local cheeses, and home-made hazelnut nougat with cherries and prunes steeped in sweet liqueur. A really memorable end to our holiday, we'll return if we possibly can

Kathryn, London

Charming, relaxed, welcoming. One of the best B&Bs we have experienced in France. Lovely cuisine and delightful sociable dinners and breakfasts. A privilege to stay here and looking forward to the opportunity to stay again.

Lynn, Dorking

We stayed at the beautiful, characterful and peaceful Manoir de Chaix for one night on our way from Brittany to the Rhone Valley. It is an oasis of calm with its walled garden and home grown produce. Our room was delightful with windows looking out to the front and back of the gardens. Dinner, which we shared with one other guest and served by Christian was perfect with the most delicious hors d'oeuvres served with the aperitif. Breakfast came with an abundant choice of home made jams, fresh croissants and baguette. Thank you for looking after us so well Christian

I feel very fortunate to have spent my final night in France in such a magical place. Le Manoir de Chaix is ideally situated for breaking a journey across France; but despite it's convenient proximity to the A10 and A85, it feels as though it is in the middle of nowhere - incredibly quiet, with dark night skies and surrounded by acres of woodland and countryside. It's a beautiful building with a lovely walled garden - in which Madame grows much of the produce that appears on the table. Big, airy rooms, lovely views, a warm welcome. Highly recommended!

Elizabeth, Bath

Brilliant host in Christian and what a cook! Several people were there for the fourth or fifth time, which in itself speaks volumes. Superbly placed for the chateaux. I have already had a request to do a revue (in French) for the Manoir de Chaix. It was good when sending e-mails, they indicated to just put Manoir de Chaix into TomTom, and it would take you straight there: it did.

Martin

Our third visit and ideal distance from Roscoff for a day's journey. So quiet and peaceful, everything calm and comfortable, and the added benefit of a delicious dinner (requested in advance) with other guests. Breakfast is a challenge to select from about 24 home-made jams incluidng tomato and cucumber, all delicious.

Robert

Great Manoir, beautiful location, tranquil setting and ideally placed for visiting Chateaux. Warmest of welcome by Christian a great chef. Will go back soon.

Mcdermott

A lovely setting, we stopped off for the night on the way home and had a very relaxing stay. Great food for dinner and fantastic breakfast - homemade jams of every flavour. We will be looking to book again for next year

James

What a fantastic place! A charming building, beautifully restored in a lovely and peaceful location. Hospitality was excellent and the food incredible - the beef was perfect! Many things were produced from the garden and were, pretty much, as good as it gets! I highly recommend a stay in this interesting and very friendly place.

Ashley

A great place to stay and really convenient for visitors to the Loire valley. Comfortable and well appointed room in a Manoir of great character. Breakfast sumptuous with an array of preserves, 20 in all, with labels to severely test your knowledge of French! Would happily return if travels take us to that region again.

Michael

One of the loveliest places we have stayed; a beautifully restored manoir in keeping with visits to some of the grandest chateaux of the Loire! The room was large, luxurious and beautifully furnished. The hospitality could not have been better; aperitifs in the garden before dinner, wonderful cuisine with home grown vegetables and excellent local wines complimented by stimulating conversation around the large dining table. Breakfast was a delight with a choice of 20 different preserves; a hard choice for early in the morning! Thank you and we will definitly try to come again!

Brian

Really lovely, one of the best places we have stayed at. Most impressed with Christian's cooking, especially the 20 varieties of home-made preserves at breakfast.

Local points of interest from Dominique Casaromani-Fillon

  • Le Manoir de Chaix is a great step to connect the south west of France, near the access of the motorway Le Manoir is a resting place in nature you can see animals, wild boars, deer, rabbits and birds wake you gently to enjoy the many homemade jam
  • Le Manoir de Chaix belongs to the same family since 1886 and Welcoming guests since 1984
  • Since the Manor you can visit many Castle within 30 minutes: Amboise Chenonceau, Loches, Villandry, Azay le RideauYou can make a balloon flight to fly over the region of castles
  • You can share dinners at the "table d'hôte" with Dominique and Pascal , which is prepared mainly with vegetables and fruits from the garden
  • From the Manor you can run in the morning before hitting the road in full shape; summer after a long day the pool will open your appetite or you wake up according to water temperature
