About Gilles Meyer
French American Couple. We work in Paris and fell in love with the Chateau de Rivaulde in 2006. We come here every week end and love it!
Gilles Meyer purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2015
Why Gilles Meyer chose Salbris
Just an amazing testimony of the times of Marcel Proust. Not only the Chateau is simply gorgeous, but it has been built using very interesting and modern (for the time) building and architectural techniques.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Quiet, Beautiful, Elegant, close to all amenities.

Lovely apartment - more suitable for 2 than 4. Great views. Eclectic mix of furniture - old and new.
First thing I must say is that Gilles the owner is very helpful and every time we saw him he asked if all was ok and did we need anything.
The entrance to the property is majestic both driving from the road and the main entrance and hallway. You then proceed up the circular main stairway to the first floor where you then go via a back stairway up to the second floor. This stairway has a lift in the centre of it (not operational) which I believe was for moving food as the kitchens were on the top floor!! So our apartment was probably a kitchen.
The property is an eclectic mix of old and new. Some older, maybe collectible pieces with Ikea furniture.
We were 4 people which stretched the facilities but you learn to cope.
The TV was in the bedroom.
The bed was very comfortable although my daughter felt the sofa bed was not ideal for 2 weeks.
The grounds and surrounding area provided suitable walks and the walk into Salbris was 2km which was perfect.
Super U was close by and is the better of the 2 supermarkets in Salbris.
The actual market in Salbris (Saturday and Thursday) was a little dissapointing.
Salbris is a good base if you want to go east and west to the Loire although if you are after wine then not so good as it is an hours drive at least.
Overall I would wholly recommend this property and the owner.
Fantastic appartment in castle
What a wonderful place in a fantastic castle. Lots of space, everything was clean. Supermarket only a few minutes drive, enough restaurants in the centre of Salbris.
Very kindly host. And so quiet around the castle!
Thank you Marco for your very kind review. Please give us a shout next time you are around!
