I love running my b&b and am very used to sharing my home. Sometimes guests just want help with their bags a key to their room and privacy. But mostly I find guests enjoy sharing a glass of wine together in the evenings and talking through the door. Musicians are welcome to use the piano. Guests are nearly always interested in the photography and art in the house. Ideas are often shared and invitations to exhibitions extended to those interested. ALL musicians welcome especially pianists as I love playing through sonatas, jazz standards etc.
Its a very old, quiet village with friendly elderly people passing by from the bakers, teenagers and young children on their way to school. It has a primary and secondary school in the village so it is bustling with life, in a quiet village way. The village pizza house is 2 minutes walk away and serves excellent pizzas and home made deserts. The village restaurant is excellent.
Best way to travel is by bike or by foot or by car. It is possible by bus as the village has a bus stop with buses to Blois and to Montrichard. But that's not ideal. Train station at Montrichard takes you to Tours or Amboise, Blois and Paris.
This is a seriously beautiful area for sunflowers, chateaux for walking and cycling. Goats' cheese is amazing in the village as is the local white wine. It's a slow pace of life here with calm and beauty and near enough to Chambord but without the tourists.
We had a wonderful stay. Michele offers a warm welcome and an extraordinarily quiet neighborhood to charge up your batteries.
Coming from Paris after some traffic jam, we were so pleased to meet Michele at her place singing and playing piano with another guest and offering us a glass of white wine! the place is a nice "maison de ville" in the middle of the village. The bedroom is comfortable and clean. Breakfast is served in the kitchen with delicious fresh croissants! The location is very central in the Loire Valley closed to Cheverny, Chambord, Chenonceau, Chaumont, Troussay and Fougeres. We had a fantastic week-end thanks a lot Michele!
Le village de Pontlevoy est très bien situé pour la visite des châteaux de la Loire. La Maison fait face à l'Abbaye et donné sur une petite place agréable.
Nous avons été bien reçu et la chambre était cosy, avec des meubles s'inscrivant bien dans l'atmosphère de cette vieille maison ou l’atmosphère est agréable.
Mais c'est une vieille maison ! Les cloisons sont fines et le parquet grince sous les pas des personnes que l'on entend déambuler dans le couloir.
Également, des bruits provenant du rez-de-chaussée nous ont réveillés pendant la nuit.
La literie est un peu vieille mais est tout de même correcte.
Notre chambre disposait d'une salle de bain avec une cabine de douche, mais les toilettes se situent dans le couloir.
Si nous avons l'occasion de repasser à Pontlevoy, nous testerons sûrement une autre des nombreuses chambres d'hôtes car il y en a beaucoup.
La maison est très belle et donne sur une jolie petite place en plein centre de Pontlevoy. Michele est vraiment charmante ! Elle met à disposition une cuisine pour les hôtes et est de très bon conseil pour les sorties culturelles ou gastronomiques. Merci !
Nous avons passé une nuit à Pontlevoy chez (website hidden) maison est un vrai nid de quiétude et de chaleur. Le village est magnifique, au cœur des Châteaux de la Loire dans la belle campagne de Touraine. On a apprécié un verre de vin devant la maison avec vue sur l'abbaye, les hôtes disposent d'une cuisine personnelle ce qui est idéal pour les longs séjours, la chambre est très calme et le lit confortable, la salle de bains spacieuse avec douche à jets. On se sent comme chez soi et l'accueil de Michèle rajoute à la qualité du séjour. Elle est un vrai rayon de soleil. Nous avons eu droit à un excellent petit déjeuner. Michel son mari a été des plus sympathiques. On a trouvé de nombreux livres sur les châteaux environnants à disposition dans la maison et Michèle peut vous donner toutes les informations nécessaires. Séjour parfait pour nous donc. Un grand merci à Michèle et Michel.
We loved our stay with Michelle in Pontlevoy. The 5 o’clock tea and her cake was a real pleasure. Our room was very comfortable, clean and welcoming. The village is really charming and peaceful. And Nelson (the dog) was also really welcoming. I highly recommend this location.
We stayed for two weeks in the Pontlevoy at Maison Clergeau with Michele. She was a wonderful host and did the extra mile to make our holiday as pleasant as possible. One night we even got a private concert piano and violin.
The location of Pontlevoy is perfect for visitin the castles of the Loire, several large castles, Chaumont, Cheverny, Chenonceau are even withing cycling range.
Also the village has a very relaxed atmosphere, some days we just stayed in Pontlevoy to enjoy the abbey, the cats, and Michele’s company.
We loved our stay with Michelle in Pontlevoy. It is a charming village with lots of comfortable character. We got to see the locals walking by as we sat outside enjoying a wine with Michelle after a long bike ride. Her partner's bikes (hired) were great to ride and we had lots of fun riding to the chateaus, rivers and villages nearby and beyond. The delights from the bakery there and in nearby villages are memorable and delicious. Our room was very comfortable and welcoming ( with flowers, oranges, books, lemon cake) with a great view of the abbey. It was beautiful sitting in the kitchen in the morning sun having breakfast looking out to the little square. Unfortunately the wifi next door in the cafe was not working so leave all that behind and just soak up the beautiful countryside, wineries, chateaus, restaurants, (especially hotel de l' ecole in town) and really relax. Would definitely do it all again. Thanks Michelle!
This is a WONDERFUL place to stay. Michelle has created the perfect blend of high-class hostel and bed-and-breakfast at her house in Pontlevoy. The village is beautiful, quiet, and totally un-touristy, yet well-placed for visiting the chateaux in the Loire. We had a wonderful time visiting with some of her other guests, who were from several different countries. She herself was fun and gracious, especially when I misread the instructions in her email and showed up significantly late! We would definitely come back.
We had a bit of a rocky beginning as the "airbnb" website was not easy to use so I bothered Michelle with a few worried emails. All turned out ok in the end but as Michele was away her friend Jess welcomed us and did all she could to make us welcome and comfortable, even booking us into dinner for the evening at a local restaurant. The 400 year old house is an amazing place to stay- a REAL French experience. The little village and the Abbey are perfect place to base yourself to tour the chateaux. Thanks Jess you were lovely.
