Description of the establishment

The Domaine de Valaudran, standing in two hectares of grounds bordering the woodland of the Sologne, promises full immersion in nature. This 19th century country house offers a very attentive welcome, inviting guests to experience perfect relaxation. The bright rooms decorated with a floral theme are perfectly in tune with the surrounding countryside guaranteeing a peaceful and comfortable stay. The estate, with its pool (open in summer), restaurant and terrace, is a popular choice for couples and families. The enthusiastic chef serves a sophisticated array of dishes based on fresh produce throughout the year, with pride of place on the menu for game and mushrooms as soon as autumn arrives.

We have used Valaudran for a number of years and it goes from strength to strength. For a brief stopover with three dogs it is ideally located very near the A20 but is quiet. Great staff and comfortable enough for a reasonable price. A good breakfast choice also sensibly priced.

Beautiful well kept chateau in lovely grounds. We only stayed for one night, but were upgraded to a superior room. All staff were very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. Restaurant decor and ambience was very good and quality of food and service impeccable. We would definitely stay there again. My only criticism was that for the price I would expect more in the way of toiletries. Only bath gel supplied.

This was our second visit. The hotel is well placed for travellers driving north or south through the centre of France. It is literally 500 metres from the Autoroute, though you would not know it, as the place is very quiet. Staff are very friendly and exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful. The restaurant is vey pretty and it's menu is competitively priced The food is of the highest quality. There is a family feel to the place, which I loved. We will use it regularly

A beautiful, peaceful country hotel, perfect location (just off motorways) for a stay en route to SW France. Lovely garden to sit out in, terrace for dining, welcoming, attractive lounge and breakfast room and perfectly clean and comfortable room on ground floor. All the furniture was very good quality and the service was excellent. Charming and very helpful proprietors. We enjoyed a walk in the pretty woods with our dog before dinner and it was wonderful to be somewhere so 'French' instead of a faceless chain - it really made our stop over part of our holiday and we will be back next year.
