Chateau de Marcay        

 Route de Chateau - Marcay 37500 Chinon − France

Welcome to Val-de-Loire, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Welcome to Touraine, a land of Châteaux and History. Welcome to the Château de Marçay, an island of calm and serenity where the whole team will be intent on sharing their cheerful mood and know-how with you, to make sure you have an unforgettable stay.
This 15th century château is built on the ruins of an 11th century fortress. Different families have lived in this domain, which included numerous farms devoted to rearing livestock and wine production. It was a safe fortress where the peasants took refuge to protect themselves from the soldiers who scoured the region.
The successive owners and legacies parcelled out this immense domain, hence all that is left is the Château and its outbuildings, a park planted with trees, vines and land over a surface area of 15 hectares. The whole forms an island of greenery in the Chinon countryside, developed into a hotel and restaurant which opened to the public in 1973.
This site is made for you; we wanted it to be as clear and precise as possible. Our wish is that it will make you want to come to our house, for a stopover or for a longer stay. We also wanted to introduce ourselves to you in a more personal way, through some photographs, and thereby create an initial relationship between us. We hope to see you soon.
