Lodge Loire Valley

It's the nugget destination for city dwellers looking for a slow life, easy to access for a short weekend that combines style and disconnection.

Located 1h10 by TGV from Montparnasse (stop: Saint Pierre des Corps) then 20 minutes by VTC managed by the hotel, the Loire Valley Lodge, created by Anne-Caroline Frey, appears as a luxurious refuge in the heart of the forest 25 km from the castles of the Loire.

Luxury lodges in the trees

Electric cars to guide you around the estate, maps for beautiful hikes and bicycles available... Here, we cultivate an idea of contemporary luxury, both relaxed and natural, out of sight and the crowd in a concept unique hotelier in France. To perfect this resolutely slow lifestyle: massages, a sublime swimming pool and contemporary art in every corner of the forest with installations by Aurèle , Michel Audiard , Jacques Bosser or Tara .

Real suites lost in the trees, we put our suitcases in luxury lodges as we find them in Scandinavia. All equipped with a jacuzzi and some with a private sauna , each of these extraordinary wooden huts, designated by artists, is displayed as the promise of communion with the forest from the terraces, just to play Robinson chic .

Swimming pool, breakfast in bed and garden of works of art

Better than room service, here breakfast is served in bed and left at the foot of your cabin, to be brought up via a pulley in a basket full of fresh buns, fruit, eggs, cold-pressed juices, compotes and other delicacies. local dishes.

On the food side: several hot options. A real gourmet restaurant , but also the coffee corner with fireplace and the possibility of squatting in the garden to improvise a lunch or dinner in cocktail mode, natural wines , pretty salads and croque-monsieur.
