La Tonnelle
Ranked #7 of 10 Vouvray B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 July 2017 via mobile

Basic room but Clean. New shower and newly decorated. Separate toilet outside the room. Madame Sylvie was a lovely lady. Although she speaks no English and us no French, we got on very well. Breakfast as in most of France is croissant and baguette but with homemade jams!

Stayed: July 2017, travelled as a couple

We arrived at 4.30pm and were asked to come back at 6. When we returned there seemed to be nobody there, despite calling repeatedly. Eventually the son appeared. Rooms basic, Romantique room gloomy and depressing, with insufficient, poor quality bedding and no pillow. Shared use of bathroom with family. Breakfast basic, bread and coffee, no imagination. Welcome and reception was unimpressive. Best to avoid

Mm Du Chateau is an excellent hostess. Her house (the chambre d'hote) is delightful, the bedrooms are not carved into the rock but the main breakfast area is. We had a lovely large room, with plenty of cupboard space and a table by the window. Breakfast was in the troglodytic room already referred to, with the most marvellous fresh bread, butter and home made preserves. We didn't try eating in in the evening, we instead went down to a local recommended bistro, which was super food, great service and good value. The only slight drawback is that our (private) bathroom was across a corridor, so you need to have a dressing gown with you!

Mrs the owner gives a warm welcome, informal chambre d'hôtes. Guests are made to feel like family in the rustic home partially carved out of the stone of the hillside. Sit under the "tonnelle" and its 100-years-old graperine, climb spiral stairs to the original, one of a kind rooms.
A fine introduction to the real like in the area.

A stay at La Tonnelle is a stay with family you've not yet met. One of the many "troglodyte" structures in the area, the house and garden are partially hacked out of the stone behind them. The vegetables you eat come from the garden of the chambre d'hote itself. I arrived having been involved in an accident; I can't really express adequately how extremely concerned and helpful the proprietress, Sylvie Duchateau, was, how far above and beyond normal expectations she went for me. If you're seeking a luxurious, antiseptic, regimented experience, you may be confusing a five-star hotel with this one-woman operation. But if quirky, unique (immaculate!) rooms off winding stairs, taking meals at the large kitchen table in front of the stone of the hill behind and surrounded by Mme. Duchateau's collection of Moroccan ceramics, or outdoors under the "tonnelle," arbor, for which the establishment is named, its 100-year-old grapevine heavy with Baco grapes, sound like the interesting, informal entree into local life you're seeking, by all means make haste to La Tonnelle.
