About Marie-Christine Miller

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

Why Marie-Christine Miller chose Villedomer

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!

What makes this castle unique

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.

Most Memorable Destination

  • 5 of 5
This is the most unique, enjoyable and memorable place my wife and I have ever stayed on vacation. It meets and exceeds what the photos and descriptions depict. When you emerge from the half-mile drive through a forest canopy, the sight of the chateau gives the feeling of arrival in a different era. That feeling is enhanced inside where guests can eat, sleep and relax in the same surroundings that have comforted others for hundreds of years, but with all the expected amenities of the modern world.

We traveled by rental car during our one week stay at Chateau De La Noue and each day sought the advice of owner Christine on where to dine, shop, and visit on our excursions around Loire Valley. Her suggestions were always helpful, in particular, her tip that the Le Choiseul cave complex in Amboise was going to be open to the public for one day only, as part of France's Heritage Days. That turned out to be one of the most interesting sites we visited. Her suggestion to have lunch at Trois Marchants, near Cheverny, resulted in a most memorable meal under an umbrella on a rainy day. Christine is an excellent hostess and even walked us through how to pay our parking ticket. As another viewer suggested, please ask Christine for a tour of the portion of the chateau that is still in the process of being restored. You will get a feel for the history of the building and the amount love and effort Christine has invested in her "Grande Dame."

We are recommending Chateau De La Noue to all of our friends, relatives, and anyone else that expresses any interest in visiting France. It definitely is a place we would visit again.

Terrific family venue

  • 5 of 5
We cannot say enough good things about our week at "our" chateau. We spent a wonderful week with our daughter and son-in-law exploring the beautiful countryside, visiting chateaux, and relaxing at La Noue. The area can't be beat for biking, walking, relaxing, and of course eating. We sampled many of the local foods at the markets, trying cheeses, breads, fruits and wines. Our daughter and son-in-law rented bikes and rode for many miles every day, preferring to see the countryside at a slower pace, while my husband and I drove to towns nearby for the markets, shops, and local color.
La Noue was the perfect location for us to spend time together in a very relaxing setting. There was plenty of room to spread out when we wanted to relax and read, and there were several choices of where to have our meals together. We especially appreciated the canopy outside with a view of the forest and the chateau, being visited by the neighbor's friendly dog and chickens. We barbecued several times, kept dry in one rainy late evening, and found every amenity we desired in the kitchen. The chateau was comfortable, quaint, filled with history, and yet had the modern conveniences which we appreciated, such as dishwasher and clothes washer/dryer. Everything was very clean. The clothes rack and line outside also came in handy. Best of all was the friendship and helpfulness extended by Christine, our hostess. She made us feel very welcome and was ready to answer any questions. We highly recommend this property for a family vacation.

Un lieu authentique pour un séjour reposant, dans une région à visiter

  • 5 of 5
(written in french)
Habitués à louer des maisons tous les ans, nous pouvons par comparaison affirmer que nous avons passé une semaine dans un lieu d'exception que nous ne pouvons que chaudement recommander.

Le château de la Noue est un lieu authentique.
La décoration donne vraiment ce sentiment d'être dans un château de famille. Les chambres sont particulièrement spacieuses et le salon très agréable. Le dépaysement est au rendez-vous, grâce au romantisme des lieux.

Le château est entouré d'un immense parc boisé, permettant tranquillité et repos. Les abords directs du château, très bien entretenus, sont parfaits pour de petites ballades, des jeux pour enfants, ou tout simplement un moment apaisant.
Nous vous recommandons notamment de déjeuner ou dîner sous la pergola, le charme est au rendez-vous.

Ajoutez à cela un accueil des plus chaleureux et sincères par Mme Miller. Ses conseils vous seront par ailleurs très utiles pour découvrir les environs, la région proche vous offrant suffisamment de variété et de beaux endroits à découvrir et visiter pour vous occuper pendant votre séjour (les plus beaux châteaux de la Loire sont proches, les caves à vin à visiter ne manquent pas, ...).

Enfin, pour les enfants le parc est un espace de jeu sans limite. Et cerise sur le gâteau, des poules dans la petite ferme à proximité du château ont vraiment ravi notre petite fille, qui ne s'est jamais lassée d'aller les nourrir ou jouer avec elles.

Bref, ce lieu est dépaysant, authentique, et on ne peut plus reposant.
Nous ne saurions que trop le recommander.

PS: nous recommandons toutefois de vous munir d'un masque de nuit

En revanche, l'anti-moustique est inutile, c'est appréciable.

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.
