The art of living in the Loire Valley. Charm and serenity. Authenticity, elegance and pleasure. Welcome to Olivier Fructus's hotel.
“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
We stayed here for one night, due to our holiday being cut short unexpectedly. Friendly accommodating staff and a charming setting. We enjoyed dinner in the garden, watching hot air balloons passing by, very atmospheric! Breakfast in the garden with charming hosts. We were sorry we couldn’t stay for longer but hope to return! (Left a bag of toiletries at hotel - hotel have said they will send on to us)
A great place: a very kind personnel, good food and a really relaxing place.
"Amazing Château Perreux!"
We had an absolutely magical time at Château Perreux! Lovely welcome from the friendly staff, beautiful spacious and well designed rooms and dinner divine overlooking the grounds. The owner, Olivier was so kind and attentive; we have already booked our next visit. Serenity and attention to every detail won our hearts! Highly recommended!
"Diamond in the Limestone"
We had a lovely experience, from the time we checked in till after we departed (thanks to our hosts recommendations on what to see / where to next travel))!
"A family from Moscow "
We had a fantastic stay- perfect quality and unbelievable feeling of staying in a “real” chateau (built in a rock overlooking a nice village), with its own park. The hotel is brilliant and the hosts are great, including when you need advice where to go from there!
Wonderful chateau and amazing host!
"Three Great Days at Amboise"
Had a lovely time at the Chateau, ready to return.
"A chateau full of charm and character"
We really enjoyed our stay here and would re-book if in the area.
"A wonderful chateau experience"
We had a fabulous two night stay; everything was just so good, from the comfortable and well-appointed chateau sized room to the service. An added bonus was the superbly prepared silver service evening meal (optional). We also enjoyed rambling around the extensive grounds and exploring the underground areas. Sound expensive? Not for what you get.
This was our 4th visit to Chateau de Perreux. We absolutely love the beautiful, relaxing environment that al the staff create. The swimming pool is simply stunning. Looking forward to our 5th visit!
"Relaxed small luxury hotel "
This 11 room hotel just outside Amboise is a great place to stay for a few days. The rooms are comfortable, room 9 in the attic is spacious and being in the attic, definitely different from your typical hotel room. Breakfast is generous. Unfortunately there is no restaurant (September 2019). The pool is nice, once you find it ;-) Definitely a place to remember for the next time we visit the area!
"Beautiful Chateau and grounds"
The exterior of the chateau is stunning as are the extensive grounds and while the interior has been designed with high quality fittings, they are not really in keeping with the chateau. There is little authenticity to the interior design.
