Prestigious Family Suite Bleue & Oiseaux


Juliet balcony, framed by luscious turquoise and coral colour curtains, offers splendid views of the garden onto the meadow beyond the Château fortifications.

The Chambre Bleue is an elegant double room with a king-size bed and luxurious decoration: turquoise silk Rubelli fabrics, antique oil paintings and valuable Louis XV antiques.

The colourful Chambre Oiseaux offers 2 single beds that can be converted into a super king double bed. The walls are covered with Paul Marot fabric and the furniture are Georges II period. This room also enjoys a breathtaking view over the park and the Valley from its Juliet balcony.

Each room has its own shower and toilet and own small dressing room.

The hearty English breakfast, served on fine porcelain, is presented with home-made jams and fresh seasonal fruit from the castle garden. You will thus savour the beginning of a peaceful day in beautiful surroundings.

The Count of Vanssay will invite you, if you wish, for a visit of the castle, during which he will tie in the history of the Vanssay family with the History of France. Afterwards, enjoy a serene stroll into the untouched nature of the flowered garden and luxuriant park beyond.

  Chateau de La Barre provides an awesome experience into the past of France's aristocracy together with an admirable reception by the property's hosts. Don`t miss it!

We stayed at the cottage - very well decorated with a complete kitchen - and in the castle, which is a bit intimidating because of so many antiques from the decoration. We got used to it after a while, but all the time we thought about the hundreds of years of each piece surrounding us :o).

The owners - Guy and Marnie - welcome you warmly, take care of your stay and help with excellent tips for day trips in the area. Upon our arrival it was late for lunch and Marnie was able to hold a restaurant nearby open to serve us... in France!!!

Pun & Diva, the dogs, make you feel even more at home.

Excellent accommodations and perfect location as a base to explore the Loire.
