From Pinterest

If you are planning to step back in time and enjoy the regal luxury of how it was to live in the olden years in Central France, then, staying at chateaux and castles turned inns and bed and breakfasts is a great idea. If you’re in Central France, here’s a list of homey yet opulent accommodations that you shouldn’t miss on your list.

Chateau de Vault de Lugny

From the moment you arrive at the iron gates of this elegant home, you feel like a royal guest at an exclusive house party. Peacocks wander on the lawn along the drive and at the front door a butler relieves you of your bags. The decoration  is tasteful and not too grand; guests dine at one single long table.

Chateau de Noirieux

On the western reaches of the Loire chateau trail, this 17th century manor house with 1920s addition eclipses all the local competition. Service is courteous with just the right amount of pampering. Rooms have some stunning antiques and the garden is shady and well-kept. (Image source)

Chateau de Bellecroix

A former command post of the Knights of Malta, this turreted, creeper-clad castle was built in the 12th century with 18th century additions. Both architecture and location in parkland are superb. Annex rooms are larger than those in the chateau, though the ones in the turrets are fun. (Image source)

Chateau des Briottieres

English gardens surround the de Valbray’s gracious family seat.

Prices are reasonable, too! (Image source)
