Review

This gracious, 19th-century château tucked in the bucolic Loire Valley offers a boutique hotel experience with excellent service and an array of on-site amenities. Three generations of the Capron family, who turned the château into a hotel in 1955, have run the beloved property and have hosted such esteemed guests as Georges Pompidou, the former French president, and Audrey Hepburn. Over the years, the family has stylishly reimagined the interiors, blending a classical aesthetic with contemporary vision. Ideally located between the famed Château de Chenonceau, the wineries of Chinon and the Villandry gardens, Tortinière is a tranquil base for exploring the best of the Loire.

The 30 rooms and suites, spread between the main chateau and garden chalets, are each individually decorated with their own design scheme and color palette. While some accommodations adhere to a more traditional style, with toile wallpaper and elegant antiques, others are more eclectically designed, with batik pillows, multi-colored bedspreads and contemporary artwork. However, all have the most updated technologies like Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs. The most spacious options are the two suites located in the château’s romantic turrets with stunning valley views and the two-bedroom family chalet that boasts a private terrace.

While the fairytale châteaux of the Loire Valley are the region’s main draw, the pastoral landscape beckons peace-seekers and nature-lovers. The property is surrounded by almost 40 acres of woodland that brim with unique flower and tree species and has footpaths that invite quiet meanderings or runs. The park edges on the Indre River so guests can borrow the chateau’s row boat to explore the riverside. On property amenities include a large, heated swimming pool surrounded by chaises, a tennis court, a massage room and cooking classes arranged upon request. The château’s restaurant, L’Orangerie, serves exquisite French gastronomy in the glass-enclosed conservatory and outside on the terrace, while the more relaxed lounge echoes an updated hunting cabin, with a pool table, impressive fireplace and deep leather armchairs.  The chateau enthusiastically welcomes children and offers bicycles, toys and special kid’s menus, as well as baby-sitting services.

Who Should Go

Families or couples looking for a grand château with updated interiors and amenities and a peaceful setting.
