Stayed here for just one night en route to the South. The house and the especially the grounds are absolutely beautiful.

The owners were charming and said had we been staying longer he could...

This updated 17th century manor house is a gem. The owners, Didier Baudard de Fontaine and his wife Sylvie, were wonderful hosts. Didier's family were original owners of the house and he is full of information on the area and its attractions. My wife, my sister, my sister-in-law and I spent three nights at the house while visiting the Loire...

Le Manoir du Grand Echeneau is a beautiful house, within walking distance of the pretty town of Vouvray. The owners, Sylvie & Didier, could not have been more attentive and helpful. We enjoyed aperitifs every evening on the terrace adjacent to our room and also enjoyed a meal at the side of the pool with lots of wine from the...

This place has a real history to discover. This is one of those secret tips we would highly recommend, both to French or Foreign travellers....

As part of a 2-week trip to France, we chose to stay 2 nights in the Loire Valley and wanted a "non-hotel" experience. This Manor, while a B&B in truth, is a charming residence. The hosts are lovely and helpful, and for our 6-year old son...the 2 resident dogs, Roxy and Jimmy, were the highlight of our stay! With a...

To briefly sum up our stay let me perhaps highlight some of the things I remember best as the father of the family.

Easily located in the quiet village of Vouvray (famous for its white, sparking wine) we were warmly welcomed by our host, Noel Terry and his two Labradors Jimmy and Roxy. Secure parking is available in front of the house. Noel (originally from England) and his English speaking French wife Marina are very knowledgeable on the Loire area and local wines....

“They are all different and good. One is at the back against the rock wall, and has no view at all, so may not suit: but the furnishings and fittings are the best, to make up for it.”
