“A luxurious break in the Loire”

I have just enjoyed the most fabulous break at Chateaufort. It really is the most luxurious place . John and Caroline who manage the estate were fabulous. On booking I was specific in my dietary requirements and preference for fresh healthy low fat meals. The food was totally delicious. John is a fabulous cook. Caroline arranged for me to have my own personal trainer during my stay- This was far better than any health spa ! After a jog around the grounds I was able to relax in my wonderful bath in large en suite . I stayed in Delacroix. I'm definitely returning. This autumn sees the completion of their gym and treatment room..... Book now! It's a jewel.

“Luxurious Trip to France”

My husband and I had the great pleasure of spending a week at Chateaufort last August. It was a wonderful and unique experience. We and our two toddlers visited from New York, and used Chateaufort as our home base to explore Loire Valley. Once there, we didn't want to leave the chateau to explore too much though!

The chateau -- the word "mansion" would be more descriptive for us Americans -- is straight out of French movies set in the era of royalty. Gorgeous, huge, perfectly decorated in the traditional French style. Vast compound to explore -- forests, beautifully manicured lawns, a fresh vegetable garden. We went jogging around the vast 22 acre compound in the morning, occasionally dabbled in archery, went exploring hidden caves, picked fresh tomatoes and berries in the garden everyday. We would lounge around the swimming pool occasionally while the kids jumped around the trampoline.

The bedrooms, living rooms, bathrooms were fantastic. Everything was beautifully decorated. The plumbing, kitchen, heating worked perfectly and were the equivalent of a 5-star hotel. We have rented houses in the Hamptons in New York, in Hawaii, in Costa Rica. While every place is unique and have their own attractions, I can safely say that Chateaufort takes luxury living to a new level, with the added charm of all things French.

Chateaufort is located in a quaint little town and is a good base to explore the beautiful Loire valley. All the castles and vineyards, picnicking, exploring, eating, restaurants. It was very easy for us to get to, as well. Flying into CDG (the main airport in Paris), there is a frequent express train that took us to the nearest big town with an hour.

And, of course, John and Caroline. They live in the compound in their own house. They are the wonderful caretakers. Supremely attentive and yet appropriately restrained. They are British, but have lived in France for the past couple decades. We don't speak a word of French, and they were our guide in so many ways. They keep the house impeccable, and they took care of us. John is an absolutely fantastic chef -- and we were treated to high-end lunches and dinners. John taught us archery. Caroline was lovely and gracious enough to look after the kids at night when we went into town. They thought of everything to make our stay perfect.

I can't recommend a French vacation at Chateaufort enough. It was a wonderful experience, and we can't wait to go back there again with a big group of friends. For Americans, this is the perfect introduction to the grandeur and charm of Europe, France, and Loire Valley in a luxurious high-end manner.

This is an absolutely stunning property . The pool area is perfect and relaxing in the summer heat. The rooms are spacious and luxuriously decorated with nice views. Jonathan and Caroline were lovely and accomodating. I would recommend having them prep your meals - the food was fresh, tasty and beautifully presented.
