Born and raised on an island in the Basque Country in the south of France, with summers at La Noue, I have spent my adult life in the US. I have worked as a Travel Counselor, an Operations Manager for an Incentive house, and today still love planning trips (as an Independant Contractor with a Travel Agency) while managing and spending (again) my summer months at La Noue, renewing my ties with my family Home and sharing my experience with guests, family and friends.

Marie-Christine Miller purchased this castle in 1998

It was 11 years ago that I chose to take over the ancestral family property and renovate it, with in mind to share with guests from all over the world my incredible memories of 'Hide-and-Seek' games throughout the hallways and unending closets of La Noue, walks in the woods with our grandmother hoping to catch a glimpse of a deer or a fox, pick blackberries in the Summer and walnuts fallen from the trees in the Fall. Of course we knew the major Chateaux as well, choosing which to visit and 'hide' in!

La Noue quickly takes over your senses and becomes a paradise for the visiting guests, adults and children alike. The 'Grande Dame' as I lovingly refer to her, graciously offers its serene and calm setting amidst a 120 acres park. Thanks to its proximity to the major sights of the Loire Valley - world reknowned for its magnificent Royal Chateaux and Gardens, historical sites and gastronomic restaurants and wineries, La Noue is a perfect 'Home' while visiting the Valley of the Kings. The apartment is very large (2000sq.ft) and easily can accommodate 6 guests in the existing bedding. Additional rooms can be opened for larger groups. It has been carefully decorated to give the guests this unique 'Home' atmosphere and be a great retreat at the end of days of sightseeing throughout the region.

IDYLLIC GETAWAY IN THE LOIRE VALLEY!

  • 5 of 5
Chateau de la Noue exceeded our expectations - all the reviews are true. We arrived and Christine was there to welcome us with a bottle of Vouvray. The property is spacious and beautiful - surrounded by quiet, secluded woods. The rooms are generous and very tastefully decorated. Our family of 8 thoroughly enjoyed our daily excursions to castles, gardens and markets in the Loire Valley, and the best part was coming home to our very own chateau. We enjoyed dining al fresco every evening with wonderful local ingredients from nearby farmers markets and towns. Christine was warm and helpful throughout with many suggestions of wineries, markets and local sights. Merci! We hope to return again someday.

IT IS TRULY A HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
It is so wonderful to come back to such a secluded, relaxed environment after all day visiting the Loire valley. Christine made us feel really welcome. The apartment is very roomy, cozy and comfortable. There are plenty of supplies and kitchen is well stocked. We have dinner out in the backyard under the huge tent almost every night. We enjoy dine in since we have little ones. The summer light stays almost 9:00 pm. The little ones enjoyed running around in the open wooded area while we having our afternoon happy hours. We have the whole place to ourselves and enjoy the privacy. (Except the visits from neighboring dog) The place is well located for visiting nearby castles and wine tasting. A bit of country road to drive, so you definitely need a car. One of the bedroom (twin) is nested in the master bedroom, it definitely a children's room, not convenient if it is for another couple. Our children and grandchildren had exciting experiences staying in a real castle. We had a lovely time, thank you Christine!

Owner's Response: Thank you to all four of you for your visit, our moments visiting the best winery in the region and of course sharing glasses of Vouvray...and all your kind words. I can only wish you will return to continue your visits to the Chateaux, the famous gardens of the Loire Valley and the even more famous Chateau de La Noue...

BIKING IN THE LOIRE VALLEY

  • 5 of 5
This property was exactly as described with regards to location, appearance and amenities. It was clean and well maintained. The owner was exceptional, helpful and personable. I would recommend this property to a friend.

Owner's Response: Thank you to you and your friends for adopting the chateau de La Noue as your base camp for your biking tour in the Loire Valley. Your impressive and beautiful tandems nicely also found their place in the Chateau and in the park as well. Bicycling through the Vouvray vineyards are enhanced by the beautiful surrounding views of the Chateaux, the medieval villages, the Loire and Cher rivers, and of course troglodyte and traditional restaurants for lunch stops. Merci et a bientot de La Noue.

A TRULY UNIQUE AND UNFORGETTABLE STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We just spent a lovely week at Chateau de la Noue with our extended family of ten to celebrate my father’s 75th birthday. We based our decision to stay there on the wonderful ratings it received. 5/5 stars in 25 reviews - could it be true? I have to say a resounding Yes! Everything mentioned by previous reviewers was exactly as we experienced. The rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious. The grounds of the property were beautiful and wonderfully shaded for running the trails. My three children loved seeing the chickens wandering around outside, as well as a little black dog who would follow us on our morning runs. Christine is a lovely hostess and although she was in her wing of the chateau, we felt we had total privacy and were not even aware she was there. She welcomed us with fresh flowers, fruit and a bottle of delicious wine from the region. On our last day, she was kind enough to give us a fascinating tour of the chateau (and its undergoing renovations), which was the highlight of my father’s trip. Christine was an incredible source of information and our stay would not have been the same without her. She told us about the Sunday market in Amboise so we could stock up on wonderful French cheeses, meats and bread. We also toured a local winery and picked up some wine (Vouvray) to enjoy during our stay. She mentioned the kids might enjoy seeing the Chateau de Breze and the Donjon at Loches, two places I would never have visited which turned out to be my favourites (even more than Chenonceau and Chambord!) We loved the underground tunnels and walking up the scary steps to the top of the keep. Christine also gave us many restaurant suggestions for a celebration birthday dinner for my father (La Cave in Montlouis-sur-Loire was great!). We had an incredible trip and I highly recommend staying at La Noue for an unforgettable experience!

Owner's Response: Your lovely review is very much appreciated. La Noue is definitely a wonderful location for a family reunion ...whether a birthday, anniversary, family reunion and even a wedding reception with a few close friends or a large circle of family members and friends as La Noue also offers facilities for parties, cocktails, dinners or large picnics! intimate concerts can also be added to this.... La Noue would welcome your return for your next family gathering .... Thank you.

GREAT SUMMER HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
Three generations and three families drove down from southern England and turned up at La Noue to stay for 10 days and we loved it. The space, both indoors and outdoors, is fantastic. The bedrooms are huge and wonderfully furnished. Christine was a marvellous owner to have around, full of information and helpful hints even though there are plenty of leaflets at the Chateau of where to go, what to see, what to do - the grandchildren loved Lulu Parc. Although you do need a car, La Noue is not as isolated as it looks as many interesting places (as well as basic needs - supermarket, etc.) are a short drive away. We very much hope to return to La Noue in the near future.

Owner's Response: Nancy,
It was a great pleasure welcoming you and your family at La Noue this Summer. You really knew how to enjoy the property, having rest time, play time, meal times outdoors, away from the "madding crowd" at the marvelous royal chateaux along the Loire, Cher and Loir rivers. This is part of the Chateau de La Noue inviting charm. Thank you so much for your visit. La Noue will look forward to your return in the near future.
