Cool off in laid-back splendour at a 19th Century French chateau, with large grounds, swimming pool and tasteful interior.


Loire chic chateau set awe-inspiring woodlands. Step inside, the wood paneled and soft yellow drawing room cleverly blends classical and more contemporary furnishings. Bedrooms at the Domaine de la Tortinière continue in the same way, with soft fabrics and colourful wallpapers – all tastefully put together by owner Anne.

Open from March to December.

Double rooms start from 115 € per night. Use the calendar to find the rate and availability on a specific date and to book online.

  • 3rd generation owners Anne and Xavier set a lovely laid back and welcoming ambiance where one would expect stiff or formal.
  • Lying by the pool with the sumptuous chateau at your tiptoes is quite revelling, to say the least.
  • A leisurely row along the Indre river which borders the Domaine de la Tortinière.


  • Drive east and combine a wine route for Monsieur (Montlouis and Vouvray vineyards) and the Chateaux de la Loire for Madame (Chenonceau and Amboises castles).
  • Done the Chateaux de la Loire already? Try again from the sky, by helicopter, ULM or hot air balloon.


Leaf peeping in France. In autumn the gardens of the Domaine de la Tortinière tend to go from green to a sparkling variety of yellows and reds, while pink and white cyclamens blanket the surrounding woodlands of the French Chateau.


Rooms: 30 continuously renovated rooms and suites, spread between the chateau and the two small manor houses. In the summer opt for the rooms in the manor houses, which actually predate the chateau, to fully enjoy the grounds.
Bar: Cosy lounge with crackling fire, dimmed lights and billiard table for the setting, and the best local wines, Cognacs and Armagnacs on the menu.
Restaurant: The Restaurant du Domaine de la Tortinière, headed by chef David Chartier, is a brilliant tribute to the Touraine gastronomy – with a twist. Try the Marigny de Marmande truffles, pork and veal nems with horseradish Chantilly, or the smoked veal tartar and quail eggs.
Pool: Outdoor swimming pool (and tennis courts).


Open from March to December.
