We are pleased to welcome you to our family home, located in the heart of the Châteaux of the Loire Valley, in the "Garden of France"


The Gerfaut, built in 1909 by our grandfather, was originally intended to be a hunting lodge. It was on his land that the Kings of France, François I and Louis XI came to hunt with their “Gerfauts” (falcons) who gave their name to the property.



Following the tradition of our ancestors, we will be delighted to share our passion for this “house” with you; its history and our daily life. An ambiance that will captivate you during your stay. You will be able to appreciate the calm, the relaxation and the tranquility which still rests within these surroundings.

Guest rooms of the Castle

Enjoy an unique experience in the Loire Valley … This pause will provide you with an authentic feeling of comfort in a château where family traditions and modernity blend together, and will allow you to discover the famous Châteaux of the Loire within the vicinity.

“Je préfère doucement laisser faire chaque instant.

C’est le bonheur qui m’entraîne.”

— Henri Salvador
