Felt Like a Queen

A little tricky to find Marçay and the chateau, but once you realize that the grounds of the hotel are part of the original plot of land which made up the entire village, you understand and keep looking for the highest building.
We arrived down a road with over-hanging trees...horses on one side and vineyard on the other. Through a stone archway and there is the chateau with circular drive and gorgeous plantings of hydrangeas. We parked and entered the wide doorway to the reception desk and Sabrina. We registered, had a wonderful, young man carry our bags to our room, and found a large room, immaculate bedding, windows overlooking the pool and the beautiful fields and village in the distance. The bath was amazing, but our room had a tub and no shower. Fine for us, but someone else might want to request a room with shower.
We returned to the reception area and was told the restaurant was closed on Tuesdays, so Sabrina gave us a map and recommendations in Chinon. Chinon has many fine restaurants, wonderful shopping, and friendly people. Our stay at the Hotel Chateau Marçay was totally delightful and highly recommended.
