A charming hotel with a family atmosphere. A beautiful setting. Gourmet cuisine. Welcome to Jean-Marc and Estelle Lozay’s hotel.
“Elegance, quality services and great comfort. Taste the tranquillity and pleasure of life in the heart of the Loire Castles.”
The Château de Beaulieu et Magnolia Spa, The Originals Relais has a family history that started in 1976. The year in which Jean-Pierre and Loraine Lozay bought the eighteenth century mansion nestled in 3 hectares of lush greenery on the slopes of the Cher River, in Joué-les-Tours, near Tours. The chef and the former Scottish stewardess had a great project in mind: make this place a gastronomic and relaxing stopover. A success that has lasted more than 30 years. “Our hotel offers a luxury setting but here, it is the atmosphere and family spirit that prevail”, says Jean-Marc who succeeded his father running the 3-star establishment. Since 2006, he and his wife Estelle have continued the tradition of this house and offer their guests the quality of welcome and the legacy that has been passed on to them. Come and discover this Château hotel in the Loire Valley.
Spread between the Château and the Pavilion (30 m), the 16 rooms of the Château de Beaulieu et Magnolia Spa, The Originals Relais reveal refined atmospheres. Each having their own personality and their own character. Spacious, air-conditioned, comfortable, peaceful, they highlight a “period” décor that is both warm and elegant. Families can find accommodations that meet their expectations (large room or connecting rooms).

We booked one night for my husband's birthday. The friendly, helpful staff made it a very special occasion. The dinner was excellent and the staff were very patient with our bad French. The whole atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Thank you
"Excellent stay in charming chateau"
Chateau: nicely decorated. Charming room and breakfast room. Clean and functional. Garden: first part is beautiful. The area around the tennis court and minigolf is completely neglected and abandoned. Personnel: super friendly Food: fine breakfast. But covid-19 limited. Dinner was top - delicious.
"Great place to visit Loire valley!"
A warm welcome & attentive service in pleasant surroundings made the hotel an ideal base from which to discover Tours & the Loire Valley, much helped by its easy accessibility.
"Even better on my return trip"
I stayed here on the way down to my house in Andalucia, and booked for my return journey. This time I stayed in the main building and all was excellent. I was very pleased that they remembered me - how could they forget? I had had problems with my car and my host sorted everything so quickly. This place and these people are the very best!!
Delightful hotel close to the Loire Chateaux. Helpful staff and clean comfortable room.
"Wonderful experience for our biking group !"
Exquisite dinner, warm welcome to our group of 15. Always the highest quality and service.
Beautiful Chateau and a superb restaurant
We stayed for 1 night and it was great! We had the spa to our self as well, and the spa was very relaxing. The room was lovely, and comfortable, liked that we had a toilet that was separate to the bathroom. The bath was amazing very big! The fact that they welcomed dogs really appealed to us. Nice grounds to have a walk, the service, and food was really good.
"Stopover in Tours"
A lovely relaxing stopover in a beautiful place. Delicious evening meal where our two dogs were allowed to accompany us ‘en Terrasse’. Highly recommended.
"Unfortunately we couldn’t stay longer"
We used this hotel as a stopover for travelling further south. It was a shame really as we didn’t arrive until early evening and had to leave promptly in the morning so didn’t get the chance to explore the gardens or spa. It has a lovely terrace overlooking the very neat gardens where we sat with a bottle of wine prior to dinner. The beef on the menu was literally melt in your mouth. It’s been a long time since I’ve had beef that good! All of the staff were friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed albeit a brief stay. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
We had a wonderful over night stay. The Château is fabulous in super grounds. Our room was very ‘french’ - super large room with single bed just off the bedroom and a lovely bathroom and toilet. Coffee and tea making facilities supplied. The evening meal served on the terrace was excellent
