Customer Reviews

Overall:
Excellent. We book houses in Europe every year. Chateau de Valerie was, by far, the most excellent property we have visited. From the expansive gardens, to the lovely pool, to the charming caretaker and his wife. It was magical in every respect.
Enjoyed Most:
The gardens, outside patio and pool. The gardens are simply gorgeous. It is wonderful to sit outside in the evening to enjoy a cool beverage and savor your surroundings. Likewise, it is lovely to sit outside in the morning listening to the birds sing and sipping your coffee. Spectacular scenery.
Enjoyed Least:
I have racked my brain and cannot come up with anything that we disliked.
Surrounding Area:
There are many charming towns within a very short 15 - 20 minute drive in which you can dine or shop. You do not have to drive far to see old Chateaus which have been renovated or enjoy a river view.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Avoine is nearest to the Chateau with a large supermarket, boulangerie and meat market. You can walk but we typically drove because we were almost always procuring provisions for the Chateau.
Tips or Restaurants:
The Chateau is well stocked and, unlike Italy, they retain basics like salt, pepper, olive oil, and spices for the next group to use. You are able to ask for the caretaker and his wife to secure provisions for you prior to your arrival but easily done yourself. We highly recommend you take Thierry and Veronique up on a daily breakfast and clean up. Other than that, bring a sense of relaxation, several good books, and perhaps some music to enjoy the Chateau. A special restaurant find...Bistrot Les Traditions. 71, Rue saint Nicolas, Samur (approx. 30 mins from the Chateau). www.restaurant-lestraditions.fr Outstanding and they speak English. You MUST eat the bread.
Directions:
We found the property easily using Google Maps. The Chateau is easy to find from whatever direction you are coming from. We took the train from Paris to St. Pierre des Corps and rented a car - drove 20 minutes to the Chateau. Upon our departure, we drove 3 hours directly to CDG and dropped off the car. Easy drive until you hit Paris proper (traffic). Be prepared for toll roads. Google maps was an excellent resource throughout our stay.
Check In Out:
Having done this sort of thing for years and years, the check in/check out process was one of the easiest we have enjoyed. The caretaker and his wife are pros and were there when they said they would be. Check in was easy and check out was a matter of settling up the bill (in cash...Euros) and a hug goodbye. Truly, a lovely experience all around.

Overall:
It was truly magical for all 20 members of my family!!!
Enjoyed Most:
The grounds, gardens, and bedrooms and baths.
Surrounding Area:
The countryside and all the chateaus nearby!!!
Nearby Events or Locales:
Beaumont-en-Veron - not really. We drove everywhere except when some went on hikes and bicycle rides.
Directions:
Directions were great. We arrived at Charles de Gaulle, took the TGV to St. Pierre de Corps, and then rented a van from National Car Rental. Then returned it the next Saturday and went back to Paris.

Be prepared to purchase extra toilet paper, paper towels, soap, and garbage bag.

Tamara, July

Overall:
We all had a wonderful time. It was our first time ever renting and it surpassed our expectations. The grounds and chateau were beautiful. The staff was so friendly and pleasant. It was truly a magical time!
Enjoyed Most:
One of the reasons we rented this property was because it had a chapel on site, which was extremely convenient considering we were getting married. There wasn't one thing in particular that we loved...because we loved it all!
Enjoyed Least:
Nothing. Everything surpassed our expectations!
Surrounding Area:
We loved the tiny villages and towns near by. It was nice an quiet. Chinon was beautiful.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Avoine was the nearest small town. It was within walking distance and had a grocery store, bakery, and all sorts of other convenient amenities. Chinon was a bigger town within driving distance that had restaurants and all sorts of shops, hair dressers, etc.
Tips or Restaurants:
They should consider hiring the chef for at least a few meals. Jacky was incredible and his meals were delicious. This was the perfect place for our wedding and to reunite our families.
Directions:
We used a GPS so we can't comment on the directions that were provided.
Check In Out:
It was extremely easy and effortless
