My husband and I were here fro two nights. This is one of the best BB in France. It is a come true dream. I am still dreaming about the Chateua. The location is very good. Nhatalie, the owner is great host. She speaks very well English and she is very nice. You will have a life experience.

We stayed in La Maison du Boulanger, one of the self catering gites, with our three small boys. The gite is an easy drive from Calais and on arrival we were greeted by Philippe and Natalie, the owners who were charming. The house is located in the grounds of the Chateau and was spotlessly clean and light and bright. A... More

The Fontenay castle is a perfect starting point to visit Chenonceau, Amboise, Tours, and other beautiful places by car or by bike (you can borrow bycicles on-site). It has a gorgeous entrée, spacious rooms, and a well-kept swimming pool. We were there with two little kids, and we all had a wonderful time. The host is very friendly and helpful,... More

My wife and visited this B&B early June 2013. Nathalie was the consummate hostess, very welcoming and full of great information on the region. The breakfasts were delicious with a variety of local and "home made" foods. Nathalie also recommended two excellent restaurants nearby La Boulaye and Le Cheval Blanc. I have no hesitation in recommending this B&B to anyone.... More

Chateau de Fontenay is a beautiful place to stay, centrally located in the Loire Valley. Close to the most famous of Chateaux in the region and with its own vineyard! Philippe and Natalie, the owners, are both lovely and welcoming - eager to share local tips for the region. The wine is amazing and the rooms are cosy and gorgeous!... More
