Built on the remains of medieval foundations, Bournand Castle has been transformed over the centuries to become a family home full of character and authenticity. Now the charming Maison des Hotes cottage offers chic comfortable accommodation to all who seek simple French living.
Historically important yet beautifully updated, Chateau de Bournand is the perfect destination for a restorative weekend in a quiet Loire Valley village. There are four guest suites available (as well as a separate cottage if you are in a larger group), the gardens are extensive and well-manicured and there are all manner of activities and culinary delights on offer. This is the perfect place for romantic getaways, gastronomical experiences and relaxing rural breaks.
The Chateau is set in the heart of the Loire Valley, not far from Saumur, Chinon and the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud. Close to home you can explore the grounds, visit the nearby village and its historic church and generally immerse yourself in simple French living, and further afield you can visit castles and caves, go wine tasting or enjoy the scenery from a hot air balloon. In the village (within walking distance) you will find a butcher, a baker, a grocer and a restaurant.
The nearest airports are Tours, Poitiers and Angers and the nearest TGV stations are Tours and Poitiers. By ferry you can travel to Caen (3 hours), Le Havre (3.5 hours) or Calais (6 hours).

The house has four independent en-suite bedrooms – one four poster, two doubles and one twin. All guest rooms are decorated with antique furniture from France and New York but are also equipped with hairdryers, bathrobes and WiFi.
Within the 9 acre gardens you will find a heated swimming pool with a pool house and solarium. Outdoor games like badminton, table tennis, boules, volleyball and croquet are provided.
The house is let on a self catering basis but breakfast and dinner are available on request (at an additional cost). A relaxed, sociable and top quality dining experience is an optional part of your stay and the owners take great pride in delivering this. Using traditional cooking methods, secret recipe books and home grown herbs, the chef at Chateau de Bournand can provide you with French-style breakfasts, seasonal dinners and excellent wines.
