Is it the sunbaked terrace below the window or the bright walls decorated with engravings that make this radiant room one of our visitors favourites? From the south facing window, your eyes follow the tortuous course of the stream as it weaves through the meadows of the valley below into the woods beyond, down to the Loire further afield…
This delightful room, flooded by sun and light, is attractively decorated with 18th century French and Italian furniture, a superb Aubusson tapestry and a very cheerful bathroom. The golden yellow Toile de Jouy and the Louis XV Trumeau probably make this the most striking room in the castle.
The king-size bed, facing the lush garden, will offer you a bucolic and soothing view when you wake up. Only the beautiful Aubusson tapestry comes as a superb contrast to this omnipresent yellow. A remarkable Italian chest of drawers blends well with French Louis XV furniture. The bathroom is equipped with a shower and a bathtub and is decorated with tiles of the same warm colours.
The hearty English breakfast, served on fine dishes, is offered with home-made jams and fresh seasonal fruit from the castle garden. You will thus savour the beginning of a beautiful and serene day in a peaceful lounge.
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. The luxuriant park and the flowered garden of the castle invite you for a beautiful stroll into untouched nature.
