Well, the French sure know a thing or two about how to do stately home elegance. And if there was ever a French capital of stately homes the Loire Valley would be a prime contender. It has some of the best. The Le Manoir de Contres is a magnificent example of what we are talking about.
This early 18th century Manor House exhibits all the classic architectural attributes of a French “chateau” and is encompassed within a 2 and ½ acres private park. You want peace, you've got it especially as despite its grand size it only has nine rooms, one of which can accommodate wheel chairs.
Yet unlike many other historic accommodations in France and beyond, this particular jewel is not stuffy or rests on its historic laurels. Rooms may be huge but they are infused with light, modern touches (see pictures of rooms). Indeed, colours are many. They range from purple, to orange and blue, even taking green and mauve. A kaleidoscope of bright hues not usually associated with historic places.
And the “piece de la resistance”, as it were, is that France may no longer have a monarchy, guests here are still treated like royalty by the French-German couple who own and run the Manoir de Contres. Add to the mix some absolutely stunning scenery and you have all the right ingredients for one of those really special stays.
Oh, and we almost forgot. The in house restaurant, which serves local delicacies more than does the Manoir de Contres justice. So all in all, a stay here is a feast on the senses Loire Valley style.
