“Our priorities are sharing, authenticity and quality.”
Olivier has made this castle, located close to Amboise, a haven of peace with new-found authenticity. Despite a tormented past, this beautiful 19th century residence has become an elegant and warm castle hotel in Loire Valley. And it's in the Cisse Valley, in Nazelles-Négron, nestled in a natural setting, where the Château de Perreux, The Originals Collection welcomes you for a timeless stay. With its 11 rooms and suites exuding charm and character, our chateau accommodation invites you to enjoy the art of living of the Loire Valley. Its fixed price menu will allow you to savour your stay a little more near the castles of the Loire Valley.
The hotel has 11 rooms and suites. “They have been restored in respect of our heritage, highlighting the noble materials that we have preserved,” says Olivier. The classic and the modern come together today to lend a sense of softness and comfort. The atmosphere is warm, refined and understated: “It reflects our welcoming philosophy,” says Olivier. In addition, a room has been specially designed to accommodate people with disabilities.

“Our fixed price menu is available for the season, from April to November,” says Olivier. The menu and schedules are unique, and you can enjoy excellent local products while in season. “The menu is simple and good quality,” adds Olivier. To start the day, Olivier offers a delicious continental breakfast, served in the dining room of the castle. “For breakfast and meals, we are looking for quality, seasonal products. We favour short food circuits. In the morning, we prepare cakes and fresh fruit salads. Our jams are home-made.”
CHATEAU DE PERREUX
Close to Amboise, the hotel is located in Nazelles-Négron, in the department of Indre-et-Loire. An ideal spot to cross this castle-studded region.
ROYAL CHÂTEAU OF AMBOISE
This elegant castle is set on a rocky outcrop overlooking the city. It controlled one of the seven bridges that crossed the Loire from Gien to Angers. Royal castle dating back to 1471, it combines medieval power with the delicacies of the Renaissance - Amboise being the berth of this movement. From the vast terrace there is a beautiful view of the Loire, the green valley and the city. You will be able to discover the chapel, the lodging of the king, the gardens and the underground levels.
CHÂTEAU DU CLOS-LUCÉ IN AMBOISEIt was the summer residence of Anne of Brittany, the wife of Charles VIII, and it is at Clos-Lucé that Leonardo da Vinci settled in 1516. On the ground floor there are magnificent frescoes crafted by the master's studio (covered with a coating in the nineteenth century). The first floor houses the room where he died in 1519, as well as his study. Finally, the basement is devoted to his fabulous machines that can be found staged in the park.
CHÂTEAU DE CHENONCEAUChenonceau, nicknamed the Ladies’ Chateau, was built by Katherine Bohier, designed by Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de Medici, preserved by Louise of Lorraine and saved by Mrs Dupin... Big names have left their mark on the décor of exceptional beauty: Murillo, Tintoretto, Rubens... Do not miss the green cabinet, the grand gallery crossing the Cher river with black and white tiling, the François I-style sitting room and its imposing fireplace, not to mention the wonderful gardens.
SAINT-GATIEN CATHEDRAL OF TOURSIts construction began in the thirteenth century and ended in the sixteenth century: Saint-Gatien cathedral illustrates the entire evolution of the Gothic style. The extravagant façade is superb, and the interior is striking for the purity of its lines. The choir, one of the most beautiful achievements of the thirteenth century, recalls the Sainte-Chapelle of Paris. But it is the particularly beautiful glass roofs that are the pride of Tours. The cathedral also houses the tomb of the children of Charles VIII.
What our customers say
"Loved this place!!"
What a lovely hotel with exceptional staff! Service above and beyond! Helped us with several travel difficulties. Would definitely come back if in the area and recommend to anyone! Rooms are beautiful and dining room outstanding.
Our overall experience was excellent. We were warmly greeted by Asma and shown around the property. It was even more beautiful than the photos! Our room was very nice, with a lovely view. Comfortable and charming, but with modern upgrades. Dinner was outstanding. Asma recommended a wonderful bottle of wine to accompany the meal. The food was seasonal and delicious. We enjoyed very much eating outside, it was a beautiful setting with perfect weather. Breakfast was also superb. Two small issues— for one, we would have appreciated a few extra pillows for the beds. Also, we had a problem with the payment when we left. The room had been prepaid on our American Express through Booking.com a month prior to our arrival. However, the woman who handled it charged us again. We showed her our confirmation, but she said she could only leave a message for Olivier to reverse the extra room charge. We left unsure of whether it would be handled in our absence. It is now 24 hours later and we have not yet received the refund. Like I said, the stay was outstanding and we would very much love to stay here again. We would definitely recommend this castle for our friends. We hope the issue with the credit card is easily resolved.

A wonderful time staying at Château de Perreux; the castle and grounds were beautiful, as was our room, and Olivier and his team were friendly and helpful. Had a wonderful and peaceful time and would easily and happily stay again.
