What Past Guests Are Saying
Escape from reality
This was our first trip to France and I wouldn't have done it any other way! After a few days in Paris, this was the perfect way to experience the beautiful countryside. The house was perfect! We stayed with two other couples and the chateau was much larger than expected. It was spacious and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the village, the garden, cooking in the kitchen, sharing good wine and of course the people in the villages were fabulous.
So many wonderful places to explore that 7 days was not enough and after long day(s) visiting castles, shopping, etc. it was nice to have such a lovely place to return to.
We live in Los angeles and this place was our most memorable in our month long visit to Europe. We are anxious to go back and visit this lovely petite chateau in the Loire Valley!
Pleasure and adventure in Epic French chateau
Things that most excited me about my trip to the Loire Valley…Firstly it was the getting there – like jumping on a bus really. We booked the Eurostar from London and connected with the TGV in Paris – from there its just a couple of hours Westwards to Angers where we rented a car. And already the Loire magic is all around you – vineyards, rolling countryside and the occasional ‘mount’.
My friends Bob and Beth had spent many daylight hours and almost as many night-time hours converting the one-time wine-producing chateau into the most charming home. There’s a sensitive respect in the decoration whilst a modern attitude has been introduced that makes comfortable living an inevitability – ie they like good food and drink and the lay-out of kitchen and dining areas makes for enjoyment of both! The house is large and exploration of the various spaces is exciting. I love a good loft and you’d be hard pressed to find a better one at the Little Chateau. Although it may not be the rooms that the casual visitor is encouraged to look into, it is for me one of those ‘houses of the imagination’ where pure vacation enjoyment ascends into a child’s adventure.
Its also lovely that you don’t have to drive far to find all the classic monuments that decorate the Loire Valley. Grand chateaus, charming villages, easy roads – it fulfils expectations on that front and the magic of the place soon gets into your system and before the week is out you’ll be gazing into the Realtors (Estate Agents) windows wondering if it might be possible to…
So definitely a trip to be made. And you’d be hard pressed to find better, more agreeable accommodation. Many times you’ll be tempted to just stay in-doors – such is the level of comfort – but explore you must. Its just nice that you can do it inside and out.

Majestic Chateau in Wine Country
For travelers that want an authentic, historical
experience in the French ountryside, Le Chateau Bob
and Beth may be your perfect choice. We stayed here
in April of 2009 and found ourselves in the most
spacious and beautifully restored 17th century
Chateau we could imagine. The house is a grand
statement, filled with art, antique furnishings,
master stone-work, and of course modern amenities
(dishwasher etc). One can dine in the banquet room
or by the fire in the kitchen. One can explore the
wine cellar or climb to look out the spire. One can
wander the courtyard gardens or haul intwisted
grapevines for the next fire at which to have
apero’s (cocktails). Le Puy is the ’salt of the
earth’ or in other words, the real French
countryside with active vineyards, mushroom caves,
graveyards, a cathedral, and gracious people to
guide one to the bakery. Lastly, I’d just say that
Beth and Bob are the kind of people one likes doing
business with –honest, kind, and straight up.
