Our stay at La Chauviniere
Our 10 day stay at La Chauviniere was unparalleled! The chateau and cottage accommodation was exceptional and the property was beautifully maintained: a wonderful combination of formal gardens and the outlying areas very natural. The owner was most helpful and the managers of the property very accommodating. This personal attention to every detail made our stay truly memorable.
My guests where very appreciative of the historic character of the chateau and its decoration with antiques, as well as the comfort and amenities available.
They enjoyed the vast surroundings of gardens, lake and park, but also the touristic possibilities around, with the Chateaux, small villages and restaurants of the Loire valley.
And they've been delightful guests!
