Picking the right accommodations for a family of Europe is challenging. Rooms for 4 are hard to come by as are guaranteed connecting rooms. Luckily, I have the research and connections that make the task easier to manage. We actually ended up with a combination of the two options – a room for four in Paris and connecting rooms in Loire Valley. I love doing first impression videos of our hotel rooms with the boys, so of course, this trip was no exception. The only problem is that I missed the excitement of our first view of the Eiffel Tower due to me trying to open the window with one hand while recording, oops!
Les Sources des Cheverny
Don’t get me wrong, I loved our spacious accommodations, but what I really loved was the property itself. We knew we were in for a treat on arrival as we made our way down the long drive and approached the original chateau on property. Click HERE for a peek into what that was like! The sky was spectacular during sunset during our first evening, see for yourself!
Our rooms were built to look like they were part of the farm. We opted for these rooms because they are connecting, but we loved that we could still enjoy the chateau – the entire ground floor had been turned into common space where we enjoyed an epic game of Loire Valley Monopoly with names of the surrounding rivers and chateaus instead of NYC real estate (yes, we brought one home with us!)
The boys felt it was a little posh when we arrived and thus were sitting up straight and proper in below photo. It was not fancy, it was just casual luxury which is right up my alley. The luxury was evident in the level of service and nice touches like the luggage cart below.
I truly enjoyed our time at Les Sources. I needed the down time after our busy days in Paris. As I head into the long holiday weekend ahead, I look forward to slowing down and connecting with family after a busy few weeks of business.
