Set in 100 acres of meadows and woods, less than 2 hours from Paris, between Chartres and Tours, Chateau de La Barre breathes elegance and authenticity. It has been in the family for six centuries, and has its own 16th century dry moat fortifications, chapel, flower gardens, fountains and pond. The Comte and Comtesse, Guy and Marnie de Vanssay will immediately make you feel at home as you join them for drinks in the 18th century Grand Salon with boiseries and ornate chandeliers.
Five magnificently luxurious en-suite bedrooms are gilded with sumptuous fabrics and fine antiques, without compromising on contemporary comforts! Every heirloom tells story, which your hosts will be happy to share.
During the day, simply enjoy relaxed, aristocratic living, or else visit the picturesque villages with their manor houses and XIIth century romanesque churches repleat with frescoes, vineyards or further afield, the famed Loire valley castles. Superb riding and golf in the vicinity
