We spent a long weekend at les noes blanches for a friends birthday and it was the perfect setting for a celebration with a group of friends. The house is grand but still very homely and full of character, each bedroom has it's own charms and the beds were so comfy! There were great little touches including a basket of adapters for those of us who had forgotten! With the supermarket only a short drive away it was simple to stock up on great food and wine and ridiculously cheap prices. In the evenings we organised for a chef to come to cook 4 course meals. She was recommended and organised by the owner and was fantastic, such good value and delicious food. She bought everything with her and tidied everything away taking any stress away. Overall we had an incredible few days and will definately be going back again.
We stayed at les Noes Blanches for a week in July. It is a wonderful place to base yourself if exploring the Loire Valley, or even for just relaxing in the tranquil gardens of the house, which is perfectly set in the heart of rural France.
The house itself is spacious and well decorated, much more modern & comfortable than some of the other chateaus for rental in the same area. Two sitting rooms and a huge country-style kitchen means the group is not constantly on top of each other, additionally all the bedrooms are really spacious and thoughtfully decorated.
We also made use of the private chef (optional) who was incredibly talented and only to happy to cater for tastes and dietary requirements. The quality, presentation and service was all first class.
Generally, the staff far exceeded our expectations and nothing was to much trouble. All requests were dealt with promptly, efficiently and politely.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this property and will most certainly be returning. Probably the only thing that is missing is a pool however the owner tells me that one is being installed at the end of the year.
There was no disappointment with this chateau!!

The staff greeted us and ran through all aspects of the chateau. They were there every day and attended to everything. They were efficient and thoughtful - They even delivered some of their personal toys for my 6 year old son to use during his stay.
All our guests travel and dine out regularly and all were extremely impressed with the food prepared by the Chef that was recommended to us by the Chateau Owner in which they organised on our behalf prior to arriving, The quality, presentation and service was all first class.
Finally the house keeper did an excellent job and the standard of cleanliness and timeliness in washing, ironing etc was very good.
The chateau was charming and the grounds beautiful.
Thank you for a memorable experience and hopefully we will be back to stay in 2015.
