CHARMING ONE-BEDROOM SUITES WITH POOL ON THE GROUNDS AT THE CHATEAU DES SABLONS.

Bourgueil Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom with king-sized bed, 1 bath, Sleeps 2

Château des Sablons is a beautiful 18th century château with a white stone facade. It is ideally situated on the edge of the medieval market town Bourgueil which is amidst some the greatest castles in the heart of the Loire-valley.

The Vineyard Suites are charming one-bedroom suites located in the Château des Sablons' coach house.

Guests in the Vineyard Suites are able to enjoy the swimming pool and grounds of the château. The grounds are designed to provide an enclave of peace and quiet and guests are encouraged to use the various tables and chairs in the park seating areas for coffee, drinks and meals. The château makes a great place to relax after a day of sightseeing or even in place of a day of sightseeing.

Sightseeing By Foot: You can choose to visit the area by foot, bicycle, train, or auto.

The Château des Sablons is only a 15 minute stroll from the center of Bourgueil. The town is well endowed with shops, including three butcher shops, five bakeries, three café-bars, five restaurants, a wonderful patisserie and a good newsagent’s shop for newspapers, etc. In addition there are two supermarkets, one in town that stays open Sunday morning and one just on the outskirts, the huge HyperU Supermarket.

The town is prosperous and enjoyable, and a center of wine production. The A.O.C. of Bourgueil is present on every wine list of any size in France and visiting the neighboring wineries (you’ll pass vines on the way into town) is one of our guest’s favorite activities.

Sightseeing By Bicycle: The Loire Valley in the part of France which is the most bicycle-friendly. A separate bike path has just been constructed beween the center of Bourgueil and the Loire. This kind of construction is becoming more common in the area. (A several hundred kilometer bike path runs along the south bank levee of the Loire.)

There are plenty of guides for visiting the region by bicycle, but the immediate area has three bike circuits of about 40 km that provides visitors with a unique visit to the area. One focuses on the vineyards and wine-producing areas, another on the old ports on the Loire, and another takes you up into the hills and along the Chaungeon to see the mills, etc.

You can also combine bicycle tours with the train to extend your range. Almost all local trains from the Port Boulet station 3.5 km from the château carry bicycles. This allows you to ride to Saumur on the bike and then take the train home, for instance.

Sightseeing By Auto: The Château has a very convenient location, being only 3.5 km from an exit from the A85 motorway. This allows you immediate access to the motorway and speeds you to some of the further distance châteaus such as Amboise (less than an hour), Chenonceau (45 minutes), Langeais (15 minutes), Villandry (20 minutes), Chinon (15 minutes), Saumur (25 minutes), Montosreau (15 minutes), Angers, Azay le Rideau….

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a lovely, relaxing stay in the Vineyard suite, and enjoyed your hospitality. We also enjoyed our refreshing swim in your pool. We will certainly recommend Chateau des Sablons to our friends that are coming later in the year. All the best. Cheers!

Magnifique!

  • 5 of 5
"A Place of Calm" - yes, exactly as advertised! After spending a few glorious (but cold and busy) days in Paris, including running the Half-Marathon, it was a pleasure to unwind at this beautiful gem. We were warmly greeted by George and Jean Pierre, but we must confess we most appreciated the friendly welcome by Charlemagne (Charlie), their beautiful bi-lingual Bernese mountain dog! (We missed our dogs at home!) The owners' hospitality, recommendations, and attention to detail (both in their gorgeous chateau and the guest accommodations) were much appreciated. Thank you for the wine and flowers, and milk in the fridge! Our vineyard suite looked exactly as pictured and was extremely clean, comfortable, and well-designed. Perfect location for chateau-hopping (we visited 8 in 3 days at a
leisurely pace). We were lucky to arrive on a Monday, so we stocked up at the fantastic Tuesday outdoor market in Bourgueil, and enjoyed cooking several meals in our apartment. Don't miss the Cafe Metry (patisserie/ salon de the) for their outstanding pains au chocolat and coffees. We also very much enjoyed dinners at La Rose de Pindar and La Trattoria (excellent crepes - but cash only unless you have a credit card with la puce). Everyone was very friendly. The village center is a 15 minute pleasant walk. Yes, we were there during the off-season, weather was chilly and not much was in bloom, but that was offset by the lack of crowds and the solitude - merci George, Jean Pierre, and Charlie, for sharing your place of calm. We hope to rent from Historic Rentals again, perhaps one of your lovely Paris apartments. A la prochaine!

A Fun week in the Loire

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were very pleased with the accommodations at the Chateau. We were situated in the coach house and it was very comfortable - excellent bed, lots of room, and a very well equipped kitchen with a complimentary half bottle of excellent Bourgueil wine. The hosts were very accommodating and offered helpful suggestions as to locations of places we wanted to go. The chateau is a 15 minute walk into a charming town with excellent boulangeries and Tuesday street market. People were very kind and helpful in town. We rented bicycles and enjoyed exploring the surrounding area. Lots to see.

Enchanting!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place! I planned on staying a few weeks and ended up staying eight after seeing the place. George and John -Pierre are gracious hosts who have thought of everything. (Not just flowers and wine, but ice cubes in each apt!) Always available to assist, never to intrude. I stayed in 5 different apts. and each was beautifully furnished (great beds), peaceful and private. The grounds are magnificent-believe the photos. The location could not be better to enjoy everything the Loire has to offer- nice walk to town, great bike riding and a day trip to anywhere. Singles, couples, families, friends, lovers- I recommend this place without reservation to any and all! Oh, and great wifi too- a rarity.

Thank you gentlemen for such an ideal start to my time in this beautiful country.

A great day to arrive. Directed to a wonderful Restaurant for a birthday celebratory dinner at La Rose de Pindore. Beautiful gardens with pool. Interesting tour of Chateau, with fine local wine. Comfortable accommodation lacking only air/ con or a fan, as it was rather warm. would hope to stay in this or another of your( George & Jean Pierre) rental sites.
Cheers John & Nanette Australia.

Owner's Response: We'd love to have you back, but we do have fans for each apartment. Please tell us next time that you need a fan. We have four fans that were never used the whole summer!

The room was better than the picture - comfortable bed and good use of space. George and Jean-Pierre perfect hosts! We had a tour of the Chateau and loved it's classy style. The gardens were peaceful and one of our best vacations ever. Used the pool one day, used the kitchen often, and it was in the middle of a great wine region within an hour of most every Chateau you'd want to visit. Absolutely recommended to friends already.
