Domaine de la Tortinière

Domaine de la Tortinière

Does anything make more sense than staying in an authentic castle when travelling to the Loire region? The Domaine de la Tortinière has quite a history, one that its friendly managers will be happy to tell you about. The 32 rooms, including the six suites, are scattered throughout the Castle and pavilions, and they find the perfect balance between being charmingly classic and having modern comforts. The hotel is also ideally located in a 15-hectare park, between Azay-le-Rideau Castle and Chenonceau Castle. Make sure to dine at the renowned in-house restaurant L'Orangerie!


Newlyweds get a bottle of Loire sparkling wine and an upgrade depending on availability on arrival, except in June, July, and August. Caractère customers receive a welcome drink in their room and two local jams made from wine from Chinon or Vouvray. There is an impressive number of forest cyclamen in the park in the flowering season, from around 30 August to 30 October.
