    Our opinion

    Labyrinthine gardens filled with botanical delights and a unique chateau stay

    Hotel description

    In the heart of the Loire Valley, the 55 hectare estate of the Château de la Bourdaisière offers spectacular grounds made for exploration. Within this expanse of land, the 14th-16th century castle exudes regal charm. Divided into hotel and grounds, the former is justly named Hôtel de Charme and each of the 29 individually-decorated guestrooms is designed around their varying dimensions. Fourteen of the rooms are located in the chateau itself, with its three apartments available for families and larger parties, while Choiseul Lodge houses 12 rooms including an apartment. In sight of many of the rooms, the immediate surroundings of the castle feature pristine lawns and the manicured shrubbery of a formal garden. Such order gives way to wilder and freer terrain, where guests can discover many varieties of trees and the like: spot the 76 varieties of fruit trees, 180 varieties of dahlias and the 150 vegetables of the kitchen garden. Meanwhile, the 650 different strains of tomatoes in the Tomato Conservatory are a magical sight and feed the menu of Bar à Tomates, an open-air kitchen where guests dine on strictly fresh, home grown and local produce sourced within a 250-kilometre radius. The simple flavours drawn from the kitchen garden are sculpted into unusual dishes full of natural flavours that belong to the region. Recreate the dishes yourself after participating in cookery classes and learn how to grow organic produce from the estate’s gardeners. Other facilities at Château de la Bourdaisière include a heated outdoor swimming pool, a tennis court, a fitness circuit and a horse riding club. You can also indulge with massages, reflexology and shiatsu. Equidistant between Tours and Amboise, this is a great base for exploration.
