Le Chat Courrant is in a lovely setting. The grounds are beautiful and Eric is most welcoming, friendly and speaks English very well. He's a great host and this is a good place to stay to visit the Chateau de Villandry, just 10 minutes away, and other Chateaux.

Beautiful house and gardens, very kind owner, Eric. Dog friendly. So much charm. Delicious breakfast. Easy parking. We were able to walk our dog in the garden and have the dog sleep in our room. Eric kindly reserved us a restaurant for dinner - Etape Gourmande, amazing place, also dog friendly. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, a really... More

This B&B is truly beautiful. The house, the gardens and the pool are all picture perfect and lovingly taken care of by the owner. We were warmly welcomed, and offered a drink which was brought to us by the pool; perfect after a day of cycling. Our room was clean and quiet, with a door leading out onto the pool.... More

A peaceful and relaxing place. Eric is the gentlest and most thoughtful of owners, who does his best to make you feel welcome and is a delight to converse with (in English or French). We stayed in the garden room - a self-contained annexe - which was very comfortable - a fan was supplied to offset the heat (why did... More

We spent a very pleasant night at Le Chat Courant with our one year old baby. It couldn't have been a more charming spot. The owner Eric made us very welcome and laid on a wonderful breakfast of homemade yoghurt and preserves from his beautiful garden, together with delicious croissants and baguettes from the local boulangerie. The room was very... More

We had a wonderful holiday in France and one of the destinations was the Loire Valley. We stayed here for 4 nights and it was a perfect choice! Le Chat Courant is situated central, but far from the busy cities and castles. Very calm and cozy in the middle of a beautiful garden on the cost of the river Cher.... More

An unusual and delightful place to stay. Don't go if you are looking for TV, standard anonymity and busy environment. But if you want tranquility, beautiful riverside setting with romantic rooms, and to enjoy the company of a charming erudite and attentive host and his family and pets, this place is for you. Heavenly we thought.

We stayed here in early September for one night with our 3 daughters aged 7, 5 and 3. We were travelling home again at the end of a very pleasant 2 week holiday in the Lot and needed a place for an overnight stay. Le Chat Courant is situated on the opposite side of the Loire from Chateau Villandry. You... More

Positive: Great welcome by the young host (son of the owner). Cozy place, informal atmosphere. Calm, and the bed didn't seem small to us at all! The swimming pool isn't very large but great. Breakfast was brilliant. Close to the castle which is on the other side of the river (not exactly opposite, but close). Negative: The train does make... More

We had a very pleasant stay. Good service and a welcome dip in the pool when we arrived after a hot drive from Caen. If you are a cyclist this area has good off road cycle paths which run along the river. Keep an eye on your croissant or the cat will have it!
