B&B near Loches, Amboise, Chenonceau, Tours and Chinon Loire Valley

ID: 563
This is a beautifully renovated water mill bed and breakfast near Loches, Chenonceau, Amboise and Chinon in the Loire Valley. It's a great base from which to explore the castles and vineyards of the Loire Valley.

The 18th century watermill is stunningly situated on its own delightful little private island, a peaceful haven between two branches of the river Indre, just 8kms from the old Medieval walled town of Loches and 20 miles from Chenonceau and Amboise.

The intimate little private sandy beach invites a dip in the river in the heat of the summer or a swim in the heated swimming pool may be more your cup of tea. The river is also a prime spot for the fly fisherman to cast a line. Don't worry if you have forgotten your rod as equipment and bait are both available at the B&B.

Peace and relaxation are very much the order of the day. You can't help but unwind here, sat on a comfy chair on one of the mill's terraces serenaded by the sound of the water passing on it's way whilst you enjoy a welcome drink.

The guests' lounge with its supply of DVDs and books and woodburning stove is a cosy retreat in more inclement weather. During your stay, take your time to hire the little rowing boat or 4 person canoe and head off to explore the river, taking a home made picnic with you. Or hire one of the B&Bs bikes and explore the numerous little country lanes that link up pretty little villages in this part of the Loire Valley. So much to explore.

Meals are served on one of the outdoor terraces, weather permitting, or otherwise in the conservatory overlooking the river.

You are assured of a good night's sleep here in one of the old-beamed guest rooms which are comfortably furnished with new mattresses on the beds, tea and coffee making facilities and thoughtful little touches such as hairdryers and heated towel rails, shower gels and shampoo in the bathrooms.

Wake up to breakfast which is served between 8.30 am and 9.30am, a continental self-service buffet including fruit juices, cereals, yoghurts and seasonal fresh fruits as well as a variety of locally baked breads, croissants and pastries.

The B&B has free WiFi internet access and plenty of onsite secure parking.

Arriving at John's (note - under new ownership Jan 2017) beautiful B&B in the Loire Valley we soon forgot about our long journey. John, Liam and Liam's girlfriend made us feel at home straightaway. As it was so hot when we arrived we cooled off and relaxed paddling in the river adjacent to the property. The dinner in the evening was excellent - food was very tasty and the style of service was attentive but relaxed. Would highly recommend a stay with John and we would stay there again next time we need a stop over in this area. - the Keene family
