Loire Valley Cooking Vacation: An Inside Look at a Luxury Chateau
Originally published July 9, 2013. We no longer offer accommodations at the chateau, but we do offer other wonderful tours in the Loire Valley. Contact us for details!
The Loire Valley is a region of gentle, rolling hills and valleys populated with many beautiful historic ruins as well as chateaux. It’s in one of these stunning chateaux that you can stay during our cooking vacations in the Loire Valley.
Prior to its renovation in 2007, the chateau had a long and storied history beginning in 1850, when it was built in an Art Nouveau and Belle Epoque style. During World War II, it was the home to a colonel.
After being bought by a husband and wife, it was restored while still maintaining its charm. Today, the luxury chateau of only five bedrooms is both elegant and peaceful, and the property features a billiards room, swimming pool, and views of the surrounding river valley. It’s also a short walk from La Roche Posay, a medieval village that is known for its healing spring water. With these photos you can get an inside look at this dream-like estate.
In addition to fabulous accommodations, our authentic and fun cooking vacations also include hands-on cooking classes, foodie visits and excursions, wonderful food and wine, and experiences to last a lifetime.
