Lovely B&B in an ideal setting
This was a lovely place.
The beds were very comfortable, rooms were clean and quiet, Claudine was a lovely and attentive host, the access and parking were secure - not that crime is such a concern in the Loire Valley, we had a great dinner down the hill near the bridge in a place Claudine recommended, and the breakfasts she provided at a lovely communal table on the main floor were simple but perfect: two kinds of bread with two kinds of jam, butter, juice, a small fruit bowl per person, coffee or tea.
More to the point, for those seeking castles we were walking distance from one with an interesting history, not too crowded, with great garden art, and it's an easy drive to others including Chanceau and Da Vinci's home and workshop.
The pool was probably also lovely, but we came in late when it was closed and then did not bother during our stay, having limited time.
The only thing I did not see was air conditioning, but it was cool when we visited in mid-June so we did not need it.
For those of us with little skill in French, Claudine is fluent in English. This is not so common in France. Almost everyone speaks "a little" English, like almost anyone in the U.S. speaks "a little" Spanish, even less so in the countryside.
Note that across the river the "Casino" is really a supermarket, a notch above Walmart but still very affordable. The automated gas station at Casino might not take your credit card, but a Total station up the road will.
Anyhow, thank you Claudine.
Thank you Brad, so pleased you have appreciated your stay here !
Always a pleasure to receive american families.
Hope to see you again in the future to discover all other nice places in our region.
A special place and host!
Claudine was a wonderful host! We recently stayed at Les Hauts De Chaumont for six nights in mid June. The property is beautiful, our room was charming, comfortable, clean, and quiet. Claudine was very helpful to us in recommending local restaurants, and making suggestions for our daily itinerary. Even though she was very busy, Claudine always took time to speak with us each morning. Breakfast was delicious, with fresh baguettes and croissants daily. The garden is lovely. Unfortunately the weather was not warm enough for us to use the pool while we were there. It was wonderful to spend one of our days without getting into the car, the Chateau and the town are an easy walk from the property. Our stay at Les Hauts De Chaumont exceeded our expectations. We will be back again!
A Great Place to Stay!
We had a lovely stay here! Claudine went out of her way to be helpful and give us suggestions on places to go in the area. It’s a perfect location for visiting the surrounding towns and chateaus.
Thank you for your comments, I really appreciate, and I was glad to meet you and help you discover our beautiful region. I hope you had a good trip back home and hope to see you again, as there are yet many things to do here; ride on the Loire river, balloon flight, Beauval zoo… Our region is full of historical sites to visit and activities to discover.
Review of Les Hauts De Chaumont
We stayed at Les Hauts de Chaumont as a group of 3 couples and the accommodation was comfortable and Claudine looked after us well. Good tourism and restaurant advice was provided by Claudine and the breakfasts were very nice.
It was a pleasure to discuss with your group!
Hope you will enjoy the rest of your stay in France, and hope to see you again in a short future ... Best regards Claudine
Very nice, well located chamber d'hote
Claudine is a very helpful hostess and has lots of information. Les Hauts de Chaumont is only 5 mins walk from the Chateau de Chaumont which is well worth visiting. Go round the chateau and park the first day, in the evening go back to visit the illuminated gardens and the next day go round the international garden festival. There is a footpath from the chamber d'hote to the village which runs along the banks of the Loire and has several places to eat.
Thank you for your comments, I am really pleased you have enjoyed your stay in Chaumont sur Loire.
This year, the festival thema "Flower power" is so beautifull, and Domaine de Chaumont deserves 2 days visit, with all modern art creations in the castle, the large park, the stables, the dependencies.
It was a pleasure to meet you, and I hope to see you again, this region is full of nice places to visit all around !
Wonderful location, exceptional hosts.
My husband, cousin and her husband recently stayed at this wonderful B&B. The location was fantastic for exploring the many things to see in this area. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The breakfasts were truly delicious!!
But the best thing about this B&B were the hosts. Claudine and her husband were truly exceptional! They went out of their way to help my cousin obtain a doctor's appointment and kindly made us dinner reservations at excellent restaurants during our stay. They were always available to answer questions and made us feel truly welcome in their home.
I highly recommend this B&B for anyone visiting the Loire valley. We only wished we could have stayed longer!
