    Our opinion

     The Château de Noirieux ia a wonderfully relaxing and comfortable château-hotel, of excellent quality and a homely feel - ideal for overnight stops, longer stays to explore the western part of the Loire or as a long weekend flying into Nantes.

    Hotel description

    The Château de Noirieux is a superbly restored chateau and manor house, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The buildings of this four-star Relais and Chateaux member consist of a manor house dating from the 15th Century, now converted into spacious and very comfortable bedrooms and the chateau itself, dating from the 17th Century, refurbished in the 1920s and again in the last couple of years, housing the public areas and several bedrooms. You approach the Château de Noirieux along a drive and then through an avenue of horse chestnut and walnut trees. The attention to detail in the decoration is noticeable throughout; in the cosy lounge with its open fire place, the bar and the elegant restaurant. There is also a terrace outside the restaurant where meals are served in fine weather. The gastronomic restaurant continues to gain a well deserved reputation, the chef being Christophe Guillemot. There is an open air swimming pool, cycles, a tennis court and maze. There is a ground-floor bedroom with wheelchair access in the manor house. All bedrooms are extremely comfortable and have private bathroom, telephone, television with satellite channels and mini-bar (there is no lift). The Château de Noirieux is highly recommended for luxurious short breaks or long, relaxing stays.
