Review:

‘The chateau was great.’
by: Mr Henriques

The Chateau was great, more like a home than a rental. We spent equal time enjoying the property as we did visiting the Loire Chateaux. The cook was fantastic, a wonderful personality and a great cook. She had the kids eating rabbit and escargot. The chateau's farmer was a kind soul who was enjoyable to speak to and good with the kids. All in all a great holiday.

Local Area / Activities

Romorantin-Lanthenay is the largest town in the Sologne region of the Loire, which stretches south from Orleans to the Cher river and east of Blois. This is an area of forests, lakes, ponds and marshes and in the autumn provides fertile hunting grounds. Wild boar and deer roam here, not to mention the ducks, geese, quails and pheasants, which far outnumber the small human population. Local restaurants tempt you with regional dishes based on game, wild mushrooms, apples and pumpkins. The town of Millancay holds an annual festival devoted entirely to the pumpkin. There are two main walking routes running through the region and numerous smaller paths, all well marked and many accessible to bicycles. The huge, child-friendly Aliotis aquarium is just outside Romorantin and has displays of local and exotic fish, including a tank containing one thousand piranhas!
