Why Christine & Philippe chose Loches

We had an internationnal career in hotel and restaurant, last one was ours, beside CDG Paris Airport ; we still receive internationnal guests in our B&B .

This cottage was created for those who wanted to stay longer and be independant, like at home ; its a great "base camp" for the chateaux all around us... and the wineyards to taste too .

What makes this cottage unique

It is a very special place, any of our guests can confirm it... a jewel as they say it loudly on tripadvisor since 2009 ve've open this House (closed to public the 500 years before).

We are also, the only address in Loches, to be selected in the prestigious Red Guide Michelin (every years since 2011 to now..).

Une adresse enchanteresse

  • 5 of 5

Excellente adresse. Accueil aux petits soins, confort optimal, repos et calme assurés. Le "Gîte du chevalier" est vraiment idéal pour se reposer, se ressourcer, et se détendre. Tout est prévu par les hôtes, adorables et d'une grande gentillesse, pour que le séjour soit le mieux possible. Un grand confort, et une terrasse avec jardin superbes. Enfin, Loches est le point de départ idéal pour visiter la région. A recommander vivement. Merci encore aux hôtes vraiment charmants.
