This morning we will get our SUV rental and drive a couple hours to the city of Orleans... no doubt famous for being the forerunner of our own "New Orleans"... or maybe the Joan of Arc connection, who knows? We also plan on visiting the huge cathedral there.
Then we'll drive onto the city of Chenonceaux.
... or Place Plumereau. The music they play at La Guinguette is very funny to me because it ranges from songs like "Hey Ya" -Outkast to a compilation of songs from Grease to a random French pop song. When we go to Place Plume we usually go to an Irish pub (I think mostly because they speak English). We also go to La Loire for lunch sometimes which is really nice and relaxing!

... individual coloured flower gardens were beautiful to see. The interior gives an insight into life for the very rich French families and many portraits and precious items were on show. I was taken with the floor of Delft tiles, imported from the Netherlands in their thousands! The round trip to see this was twenty miles and we had to go out later for cakes so a daily total of twenty-six miles.

It was refreshing, but not very much like a beer.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel la Roseraie Chenonceaux
We stayed at La Roseraie September 21 and 22, 2005 and we just loved it. It was everything that we hoped for and more - story book quaint, beautifully decorated, comfortable, welcoming and the food was to die for. We heartily agree with all of the comments written here about this hotel/restaurant except of course the odd one titled "Lovely old hotel but better value elsewhere". We have not found a better value anywhere and we have traveled a lot! This was the best and surprisingly the cheapest of the hotels on our trip to France and Switzerland. I also can't imagine Sophie and Laurent "lecturing" anyone. They are the nicest and most gracious hosts. They bend over backward to make sure that you are comfortable and happy. We were treated like royalty.
Lovely old hotel but better value elsewhere
This hotel is in a wonderful location and I agree with all of the descriptive notes by other reviewers. However, a few things about the facilities were disappointing. We had to ask for 'glass' glasses in our room (we don't like soft plastic cups), and wished we hadn't asked for ice because what followed was a lecture on how only Americans (we're not American, but do speak English) ever order ice because the French never would have ice or a drink before dinner in their room! We were exhausted from a long day of chateau-visiting, wanted to just relax and put our feet up before dinner and the last thing we needed was a lecture on the French culture of 'food and wine' which we apparently didn't appreciate because we wanted ice in our room.
Do you dream of a charming stone small guest house with a turret in the lovely Cher Valley in a tiny village with a country French dining room with beams and lovely plant and vine filled courtyard patio and a private lush formal garden in the back then you will love where we stayed!We stayed at the Roseraie and it was the most romantic relaxing experience we ever had in a hotel bar none.The parking area was part of the large garden which made it a pleasure to go to the car. It was early May but still beautiful and flowery but too cold for the pool. We were graciously greeted and led upstairs to our clean room up in the back with our nice patio, The room was covered in a lovey red/pink toile. The bathroom was nice with a large tub and there was regular bed and also a nice day bed. Our room overlooked the lovey garden area and a cool breeze was wonderful. We reserved table for dinner and were seated in the best table by the front window at dusk.We had eaten great meals in Paris and this one riveled all.the portions were huge by any standard....Laurent was very french and friendly and speaks perfect English and he generously loaned us a map.... he has a terrific sense of humor too.He recommended an interesting small cave for wine tasting nearby.The location is totally right out the front gate of the chateau and train line...we had rented a car and drove all over looking at the other chateaus but when we go back we will head here !!! It was a dream come true,....One suggestion.. we wanted to use bikes and they really need to get some free bikes for guests,They did have some rusted junk bikes but someone told us we had to pay per hour so we passed...The grounds of the Chateau Chenenceau are so lovely and the inside and outbuildings are great!!! We absolutely love this area with it's vineyards villages, and woods. If you like to be treated like you're special in a casual atmosphere stay here.
I stayed here last week and I LOVE this place. It is just so beautiful and idyllic and friendly and oh so quiet. My room was blue and had everything I needed, the owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. And the little town of Chenonceaux is excellently located to see the most beautiful castles in the world. Next time I will be staying longer.
Charming, spotless rooms among the loveliest gardens and terraces. Our was a very large bedroom with full bath and a sitting room (with single bed if you need a triple). Very comfortable - and at 95 euros one of the most expensive rooms. Our friend stayed in a 60 euro room which was also lovely - sharing a balcony terrace with 3 other rooms. The food alone would be reason enough to stay put here, but the service places the inn heads and shoulders above any other we have experienced in France. We stayed 5 nights, using it as a base to explore from Chambord to Saumur. The train station is a few minutes away on foot - no need to take the car to Chinon, Saumur, Tours - and the pool welcomes the weary at day's end. Another big plus is the secured parking.
What a gem of a place!!! Laurent, the owner is wonderful. A beautiful place and the best croissants I have ever had in my life. I would love to go back again.
Perfect, perfect, perfect
We were just there in late May. I can't believe how perfect this hotel is. It's a stone's throw from the most beautiful chateau--Chenonceau. The gardens and property are perfectly maintained, and the birds are abundant and provide background music at dinner on the patio. Our room was spotless. We took every meal at the hotel. Sophie and Laurent are the hardest working hotel owners ever, and the most gracious hosts.
Most charming hotel
La Roseraie is the most charming hotel we stayed in during our three week trip. The owners, Sophie and Laurent are delightful people. The rooms are charming and we had a lovely view of the garden and courtyard. The food is excellent!! If you are looking for a hotel in the Loire Valley I would definitely choose La Roseraie. Sophie and Laurent were very helpful with any questions we had.
Simply the best
I can't say enough nice things about this hotel. From the moment we arrived Sophie and Laurent made us feel welcome. Our rooms were charming and had a nice view of the garden and our own little terrace with table and chairs. The dining room was always full and I can see why. The meals we had there were the best of our trip and the chocolate mousse was excellent. Chenonceaux is a great base for exploring the Loire valley and this is a very friendly, charming hotel.
Charming accommodation with good food and service
We spent a week here in June 2003. It is an excellent base for exploring the Loire. Our suite was large and charming, complete with fireplace and out of tune piano in the master bedroom. The restaurant is very good and hosts Laurent and Sophie are very welcoming. We met many travellers from other hotels and chateaux that preferred to eat at the Roseraie. The property has a pool which is nice at the end of a long day of sight-seeing (especially if you have children). We had a wonderful experience here and would highly recommend it as excellent value.
