Lovely respite in the chateau region of France

  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks in this charming property. The house was well-equipped for all of our needs and the pool was perfect for relaxing with children after visiting various chateaux. The house is situated on approximately five acres in the Orangerie (a walled orchard).

Beyond the Orangerie lies the larger property, a beautiful expanse of land perfectly suited for explorations and sparking the imaginations of children, both young and old.

The owners were knowledgeable about the area, friendly and accommodating to our every need. In fact, the one need we couldn't have anticipated was our children's desire for friends their own age during a long stay in a foreign country. Even that need was met by the owners' two sweet girls who were approximately the same age as our children. Such luck!!

Overall, a memorable stay where we made many fond family memories.

Quiet and relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely stay in the cottage. The pool was huge! Plenty to do with fishing in the lake and biking around the property. It's very safe for children as the main gate was kept locked while we were there. It is very rural but the Super U just 5 mins away had everything. Thierry and Maria were very friendly and checked on us to see that everything was okay. The bedrooms have separate air conditioning. The one in the lounge wasn't working but it was sorted out quickly and really wasn't a problem. Nice breezes and extra fans were fine. Wifi and English TV were a bonus for the children. We made a new friend as well with the goat next door. We had a lovely time - thank you!

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.
