>My family and I stayed at the Chateau des Sablons for a week in July 2008. We stayed in the three-bedroom apartment, the Coach House Suite, and had a wonderful time. The rooms were comfortable, clean, and the beds firm. The kitchen was also well equipped. The Chateau is on a gated private land with mature trees, and the owners have made every effort to create a relaxing environment. The Chateau des Sablons is very close to the highway which made it easy to travel to castles in the Loire that we wanted to see. There are many superb restaurants in the area with various price ranges. I sincerely hope we will back there soon and would strongly recommend this address.
We had an absolutely wonderful week at Château des Sablons, and it was perfect for our first holiday with our new baby. The Coach House Suite was like a home away from home (except tidier than ours!) and we really enjoyed the views of the château and grounds. I think the set-up is particularly ideal for children – no stairs, plenty of outside space, and secure grounds – so we will think of coming again once Anna is older. I will definitely recommend it to others. We also really enjoyed the Loire Valley as a destination. It’s full of history and wine, which is my personal heaven!
