We spent 3 great nights here at the end of June and thought everything perfect! Our hosts were very helpful with booking a restaurant and advice on the many chateaux around. The breakfasts were excellent and set us up for the day. We would certainly recommend the B & B and hope to return.

Upon arrival we were greeted by our very friendly host who gave us some very useful advice on what to visit and where to eat. The small house that we had all to ourselves was nicely furnished, comfortable and very clean. (No wonder, the proprietor is a retired pharmacist.) The property even has its own small lake (étang) with fish.

Breakfast was also very pleasant, also a wonderful way to meet other travelers thanks to the friendly atmosphere created by the host and his wife. Staying in the peaceful, lovely old rural house (refurbished) we wondered what country life must have been like in past centuries. Last but not least, we found that their prices were very friendly, as well.

We have just returned from a short trip to France, staying in Pommes de Pin at Les Saisons de Trainefeuilles. My husband was keen to see some of the Loire Chateaux so this was to be a busy few days. Having done a good deal of research we picked this B&B as it was ideally situated and had a swimming pool - anticipating that the weather may have been better. We were warmly greeted by Isabelle who asked if we'd like to speak in French or English. We went for French and were delighted that she didn't speak too fast so we could keep up with her introduction to the property. She showed us the guests' lounge which has every piece of information you could need on the area, various books and games, a kettle to make your own coffee, free wi-fi; an ideal spot to meet other guests or to return for a glass of wine after dinner. There is a television but Rémi (Isabelle's husband) is probably the only one who knows how to make it work! Across the path is a room which contains a guest fridge (for that bottle of wine!) as well as washing machine, microwave and other cooking facilities. I guess this would be particularly useful for those staying with small children. Our room was adjacent to the lounge so was extremely convenient. Isabelle showed us how to put up the shutters at night, their extensive grounds and, of course, our room. It was huge! A characterful room with very comfortable bed and large wardrobe with shelves. It had French doors leading directly into the gardens, on to the pathway and a third door to the remainder of the property. A lovely bathroom with bath and shower over and a separate loo ('macerating' - I think that's the term - so a bit noisy but not a problem). The bathroom had a self-timing large radiator/heated towel-rail so was cosy in the mornings. There was a spare blanket and pillow but we didn't need either. The flooring throughout is tiles so on winter days, perhaps may be a bit chilly on bare feet? I don't think it's mentioned on their web site but there was even a hairdryer.
A delicious breakfast was served in the conservatory which included all the usual breads and croissants together with fresh fruit salad, cereals, cheese, fruit juice, home made yoghurt and jams and wonderful coffee. A great start to the day. Both Isabelle and Rémi (who speaks fluent English) were a mine of information. We would discuss where we were thinking of going that day and Isabelle would magically appear with the relevant leaflets and discount vouchers for many of the Chateaux admission charges. They know the local chateaux very well so would suggest where we could have lunch on our trips - avoiding the tourist traps; aspects of the chateaux or their grounds that were particularly interesting and that we might otherwise have missed. They suggested where we went to taste and buy wine to bring home; a chocolate factory where we just had to sample their different blends. For the evenings they recommended local restaurants from the simple to the more sophisticated - they even suggested which dishes we may like to try! My husband had previously booked our last night treat - Auberge du Bon Laboureur in Chenonceaux. Fabulous. Not cheap but for a Michelin-starred restaurant, worth every Euro! The food was wonderful - interesting flavours and combinations without being over-the-top or too rich. The atmosphere was relaxed but special with attentive service that wasn't intrusive.
We were very sorry when it was time to leave Les Saisons. We had had a fun time both in the area and with Isabelle and Rémi. I am sure we will see them again before too long. There are still so many Chateaux to see and so many wines to try!

We stayed for 4 days with our family from Washington (USA). The place, just 25 minutes from Blois, and all the castles around, was unbelievable. A very nice parc with a lake, old trees, a nice swimmingpool and very nice and comfortable rooms.
The owners are also very helpfull. The Table d'Hote is a must, because the good food and the nice wine.
We will be back if we can.
Thanks for all !!

This place is so beautiful and we felt so comfortable that I was sorry I hadn't allowed for more time to stay there on our trip. We didn't meet Isabelle, who was away visiting a family member who'd fallen ill, but Rémi was a perfect host, serving delicious breakfasts in the lovely garden room, giving us excellent suggestions for dining out and sightseeing and helping with ticket-buying, etc. Among other things, he told us about the marvelous Apocalypse tapestry at Angers, which we might not have visited about otherwise.

We felt like friends of the family rather than paying guests, and I hope someday we'll be able to return.
