If you're looking to stay in the western portion of the Loire area, Saumur and this chateau are great places to be. This chateau was built in the 1890s (I believe) but was totally remodeled and refurbished by the current owners, Thierry & Yolaine. They have taken great effort to make sure everything is in tip top shape from the manicuring of the property, to the condition of the chateau and all of the common access and guest rooms including the beautiful breakfast room. The breakfast is optional. Uno the dog is also a nice and frinedly member of the chateau. Parking is onsite and ample.
As for things to do, there are of course the many chateaux to see. We visited Chateau Breze for its unique history of being constructed atop an underground village dating to 900 AD. We also visited Chateau d'Saumur which is situated right in town. Another chateau visited was Chateau d'Ussy which is very pretty and quite interesting for its architectural points and the grounds. The two trees adjacent to the church on the grounds are spectacular and have lived through many different stories.
Also highly recommended if you're looking for a truly French dinner is restaurant L'Escargot. The foie gras (not pate) was excellent. which is a short walk from the chateau.
