Rustic but nice.Posted Apr 6, 2017 on Hotels
Its a nice place but booked it as a hotel, we got there and we were told we had to clean the room and strip the bed on departure and put the rubbish out. Was pleasant enough as a stopover but hard to find as satnav took us back lanes.

Good for self cateringPosted Oct 16, 2016 on Hotels
Look for Richlieu on the map, we found it easier. Medium size room with kitchenette. Whilst it had a dishwashing machine, there were no tea towels or dishwashing liquid. Good TV, even found the BBC world service. Necessary to use the supplied trollies to get bags from large car park to room, not really a problem. Reception were pleasant and there is a spa, but did not use it. Wi Fi in reception, though my room was close enough for the internet to stretch. Breakfast and dinner, at a price. Used the place to visit Chateau de Breze (euro 11.50) and the local area. Did not spend any time in (Cardinal) Richlieu. Big supermarket down the road; very useful. Good stay, and recommended for the self catering aspect. Nice balcony for the warmer days..

Great Place to relax and chillPosted Sep 17, 2014 on Hotels
Good location, good facilities, not a very tourist part of France, so do not expect the locals to speak anything but French. Richelieu unique and historic, Some good places to eat good quality and not expensive.

Great, basic accomodationPosted Aug 31, 2014 on Hotels
We enjoyed our stay at Le Relais du Plessis. The accomdation was very basic, but provided most everything we needed. No oven and could have done with a few more items for the kitchen, but the essentials were there. The grounds were fairly quiet and had a very safe feeling as my children ran around with the other children they met. Located on the outskirts of a lovely town, close to a supermarket, helpful staff, clean. We would return.

Close to a beautiful 17th Century Listed town.Posted Aug 24, 2014
Pros: Location, setting and simple accommodation.
Cons: The inclusion of a simple welcome pack to include a washing up cloth, shampoo, soap etc would be good.
Location: Absolutely beautiful location.
Very impressed, value for money and perfect for a family. It is not always easy to find accommodation for a family of 5 at a reasonable price. We stayed for one night en-route and we're pleased it was well appointed and close to the most beautiful town.

Misleading and pikeyPosted Aug 4, 2014
Pros: Cheap - but then again you do everything yourself
Cons: A lot - see above
Location: Close to supermarket. Not far from Chateaux but still off-centre so the eastern ones will be too far to visit in a day
The concept of this hotel/holiday village is fundamentally flawed. It is not a hotel in that services are minimal, but it is not equivalent to a gite or rental property since you have to provide and do so many things yourself. Given the charm of French villages, I don't know how anyone would chose this ahead of a gite. And it is not cheaper. The swimming pool is the only advantage it has over a gite, but you have to share it with some of our rudest/noisiest Northern Europe neighbours. Consider the following before booking: - room needs to be cleaned before departure - never seen that before - need to undo bed and put all bed linen and towels in a bag before departure - Wi-fi does not work - You have to leave your car at an outside car park. Good for security but no help for carrying cases to the bungalow - car park is too small (loads of cars parked everywhere in the morning) - Small swimming pool - small bedrooms (the width of a large suitcase around the bed) - very little storage space - only 1 small towel per person provided - nothing provided for the kitchen apart from crockery (no washing up liquid, sponge, tea towels etc)

Great for families, nice location.Posted Aug 27, 2013 on Hotels
Checking in took a while, guess it was a busy time and only one person on reception. Apartment was comfortable and beds were good although we had to make them up ourselves Location was great.

Near to châteaux and sitesPosted Sep 12, 2011 on Hotels
Lovely location. Good to collect bread from reception in the morning. Room perfect for us, comfy double bed and comfy bed settee for a teenager in the lounge area. Great to sit on wooden balcony and eat dinner outside. Well fitted apartment. Only thing missing was an oven, as the dual microwave couldn't cook pizza. Not far from Chateaux of the Loire. Supermarket 5 minutes walk away. Would go back!
