Where to sleep in the Loire valley

B&B Cathyourte


An original and unique place to stay in the Loire Valley!

Cathy and Jean-Pierre live in an old house built along the limestone cliff in Chançay. But this is not where they offer you to stay. They've built 2 Mongolian yurts in their garden, which combine authenticity and comfort. Made for 2 and 4 people, they both offer a lot of space, a private bathroom and a small kitchen that will enable you to cook your own meals. Unless you prefer Cathy to serve you dinner, as she offers home-made meals cooked with local products and vegetables grown in her own garden. Have a nice meal... and a good night!

We tested and spent one night in one of Cathy's yurts in March 2019, and we loved it! A highly recommended place, only 5 minutes from our winery by car!
