A true marvel of the Loire Valley, situated between Tours and Amboise, Château Louise de La Vallière is an invitation to indulge in the delights of the senses and times of yore. The château’s owners have created a world immersed in the age of Louis XIV and thus in the history of France, both culturally and in terms of the building’s architectural heritage. This exceptional property stands proudly in a sixteen-hectare ancient forest, home to a reserve of protected animal species. Surrounded by nature and ornamental gardens, this haven of peace in the Touraine region is perfect for a stay of infinite pleasures. The celebrated architect Jacques Garcia designed the interiors. Exuding the utmost refinement, the decor brilliantly bridges the gap between past and present, and is particularly impressive in the nine rooms and eleven suites. At the gourmet restaurant L’Amphitryon, enjoy the privilege of savouring a cuisine prepared with local and seasonal products, some of which come directly from the château’s vegetable garden. Inspired by the culinary traditions of the 17th century, chef Maxime Lesobre has perfected his menu with the help of a gastronomic historian. During a romantic stay, why not partake in an unforgettable tasting session at the champagne bar Le Saint-Évremond or relax in the outdoor swimming pool, which is heated all year round? Combining a magnificent journey through time with a delicious caress for the senses, it is no wonder that such moments spent at Château Louise de La Vallière never cease to amaze.
