MAGNIFICENT WINTER STAY

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent a magical two and a half weeks at the guesthouse during the Christmas and New Years holidays. This property is truly amazing---words cannot adequately describe the setting of the guesthouse nor the beautiful grounds of the Chateau de la Briche during winter. The weather was pleasant and we had many days of sunshine. We enjoyed daily walks in the stunning forest and walked around the lake. We rode owner-provided bicycles throughout the property. The guesthouse is quite spacious and there was more than adequate heating to keep us as cozy as we wanted. The onsite caretaker, Thierry, was extremely pleasant and helpful. We enjoyed many treks to nearby chateaus, restaurants, street markets and other holiday attractions. During the holidays, the streets in all of the nearby towns were lit up with Christmas lights. The city of Tours, just half an hour away, had a fabulous holiday market, with wonderful knick-knacks and tempting food. Our only regret was leaving this beautiful property, when it was time to return home. We will surely come again and plan on another winter/spring visit in the near future.

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful home! The location is central to see most of the Chateaus in the Loire Valley. The house is clean, well kept and has all of the amenities you could ask for! The pool was great to come back to after a long day of sight seeing. The kids had a blast riding bicycles on the property and swimming. We highly recommend this property, as we will hope to visit it again in the future!

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
After way too many nights in Paris we arrived to serenity and the beauty of the Loire Valley at La Briche. The other reviews are bang on and we felt very much at home and comfortable here. Thierry and Maria were very helpful with anything we required.

Our three children (11, 9 and 7) played soccer, hide and seek, biked the property, and swam. They also talked at length with our neighbor the goat (le chevre). We had easy access to local towns for sightseeing and crammed many, many things into our brief stay. We have new, amazing memories.

Hopefully our travels will take us back sometime in the future.
What a beautiful, beautiful experience.

Thank you Nahid and family!

WE SHALL RETURN!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at La Briche for 3 weeks in July 2012 with our daughters aged 8 and 10. The accommodation is clean and well cared for with a very large lounge area and superb pool and sitting out area with BBQ etc. The beds were very comfortable which is a bonus and we were delighted with the wifi and satellite tv. Thierry the caretaker who lives on site is fabulous- he helped us out with any problems and looked after the pool,rubbish etc. The owners were very friendly and the girls will always remember the night they had dinner at a real chateau thanks to Nahid and Roland's very generous hospitality- it was lovely to learn the history of the chateau as well! We found it a great base to explore the area- visits to the beautiful chateaux,stocking up at the local markets,vineyards etc...but we all enjoyed using the bikes provided to explore the grounds and paths of the property. But we will remember most the peace,tranquility and beautiful setting and we plan to return next summer.

A TRUE GEM IN THE LOIRE VALLEY!

  • 5 of 5
Four of us had a wonderful stay at La Briche. The house was lovely and comfortable; the pool was the largest and nicest I have ever experienced at rental property. The massive grounds of the guesthouse and the main property were magnificent. There was more than ample space on the property to walk and ride the bikes that were provided. The green house with tomatoes, lettuce and herbs was a really nice bonus as were the fruit trees and vineyard.
The local Super U in the neighboring town was a great place to buy groceries, wine and other supplies. There was a wonderful restaurant (Le Bouff’tard) in the little town of Hommes and the property is conveniently located for trips to the many Loire Valley chateaus and wineries. The large city of Tours was about 45 minutes from the property.
A car is a must, but we did take a couple of days just relaxing and enjoying the house, pool and grounds.
I plan to return and I am recommending this rental to family, friends and anyone looking for a truly great place to stay in the wonderful Loire Valley.
I also want to thank Nahid and Thierry for their hospitality and assistance.

RELAXING NATURE GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our stay at Chateau de la Briche. The owners made our stay extremely comfortable. They provided us with all the information we needed, were responsive to our requests and were very interesting people. The house was extremely clean and well stocked. We loved swimming in the pool, feeding the goats and picking the fresh fruits and vegetables. I would highly reoommend it to anyone looking to get away from the busy life of the city and enjoy nature. Thank you for sharing your chateau with us.
