The de Ternay family have been bringing alive this historic monument, which dates from the 15th and 19th centuries, since 1606. Within the walls of the Château nestles a small chapel which is considered to be a masterpiece of gothic art. The warm and friendly welcome that you will receive in these prestigious surroundings, where strength and elegance join forces, is a promising start to your stay in a haven of peace. From your room, enjoy views over the calm sweep of the Dive valley, or the Château grounds, with trees that have stood for centuries. The authenticity of this historic site is a real pleasure to discover.

A group of us, four friends, rented a car to travel around France. One of the important stops was to see the Mothe- Chandeniers, a chateau nearby which is being restored by interested people from around the world. We looked at this property for at least a year before taking the trip. The 4 of us shared a 2 room suite with one bathroom. We are good friends, and the rooms are huge, so it was a perfect stay. Our hosts were wonderful, funny and charming and gave us a tour of the property which has been in the family for 600 years or so. There is a beautiful pool surrounded by huge fig trees, We were made to feel like family visitors, and it was really pretty casual for a chateau. Lovely breakfast with croissants, breads, yogurt, tea, coffee and fresh fruit. It was our favorite stay on our trip. Our hosts also recommended a fabulous restaurant nearby where we got a formal 5 course meal for under E30. Again, probably the most memorable dining on our trip. I was able to visit the beautiful Mothe -Chandeniers and it was a wonderful memory. Especially if you are one of the many owners of the Mothe, it is so close you can't pass up this opportunity. Thanks, Chateau Ternay! We'll Be back!

Un lugar unico e irrepetible. Es un lugar totalmente original de 1444. Lo mantienen de la misma forma en que fuera la casa de Bertrand de BEAUVEAU. No es un lugar armado y reciclado es un lugar tiicamente frances del valle de la Loire. Sus propios dueños lo atienden y son descendientes directos de la familia original. Tiene el confor actual, wi-fi, buenos baños, etc. Una comoda pileta para usar en verano y un parque adelante y un interesante bosque atras para largas caminatas y suculentos picnic.A unique and unrepeatable place. It is a totally original place from 1444. They keep it the same way it was the house of Bertrand de BEAUVEAU. It is not an armed and recycled place, it is a purely French place in the Loire Valley. Its own owners attend to it and are direct descendants of the original family. It has the current confor, wi-fi, good bathrooms, etc. A comfortable pool to use in summer and a park ahead and an interesting forest behind for long walks and succulent picnics.

When we had an overnight stay in 2017,we decided to return for the next special occassion. So my big birthday proved just right. Arriving on a hot June day, we were pleased to enter the coolness of the chateau. Our room faced the park and gave us plenty of space, even with the enormous bed. The bright and modern bathroom also was roomy.Down to have our pre-dinner aperitifs on the terrace with the Count and Countess. They were as charming as we remembered them from our previous stay.The Loire sparkling wine and nibbles went doen well. Then it was time for dinner. Over the two days we had a beautiful selection of dinners prepared by the Countess. These ranged from parawn and smoked salmon starters to duck breast, and another day coq au vin.Desserts like tarts onto local cheeses, and all accompanied by Saumur wines from a grower in the village.All excellent and enjoyed in the medieval dining room on histotical plates with added candlelight. Before leavbing on our last morning we enjoyed a tour of the chateau given by the Count. A few centuries of history came alive before our eyes. What a storyuteller. This had been a wonderful stay and we highly recommend it to anyone who wants something different from the normal modern hotel.Thanks again to our hosts.

We stayed at the Chateau de Ternay as part of our Loire Valley trip. We wanted somewhere on the west side of Tours to explore the chateaus on that side and then stayed east of Tours for the more eastern chateaus. We drove from Mont St. Michel via Saumur and we were happy to have the GPS as we used a lot of backroads. Upon arrival to the chateau we were wowed at how beautiful it was on the outside. The owner, Loic, was working outside and showed us where to park our car and then we rang the bell and Caroline, his wife, greeted us. The chateau is built around a lovely courtyard. Caroline showed us the room where we could sit in the evening as well as the breakfast area and said we were their only guests that evening. Then we went up 60 steps of a beautiful stone staircase to our lovely room in one of the towers. We really loved the room which was spacious and had a lovely view of the grounds. The bed was large and comfortable and there was a large desk which we later found out had belonged to one of Loic's ancestors. The bathroom had double sinks and a small but adequate shower. We felt like we were going back in time as the chateau is not new and shiny but is old and authentic. We loved it. The only drawback of the room on the third floor is that if you need something downstairs you have to all the way down to the ground floor. There is no phone in the room or any way to reach the owners except to go down to the courtyard and ring a bell. I believe there are ground level room(s)? however. If you are unable to handle 60 steps then it would probably be good to make sure you have a ground level room as there are no elevators. There was a nice guide in the room about the walking trails around the chateau along with a map. We really enjoyed exploring the beautiful grounds and loved that the two beautiful dogs went along with us. The breakfast was in the beautiful and very old dining room with heaters pumping as the chateau is a little chilly in May. The chateau is out of the way so if you want to eat dinner outside of the chateau you would have to drive several mies to get to a restaurant. We opted to have dinner at the chateau (40 Euro pp) on our second night. Count Loic and Countess Caroline joined us in the sitting room for the appertif which consisted of chips and nuts and sparkling wine (at no extra charge). We really enjoyed chatting with them and loved learning more about the chateau. We ate at three different chateaus on our trip and this was really the best of the three (the others were good but this one was outstanding). Caroline is a wonderful cook. We had veal stew with rice, a lovely salad, a cheese plate and a tasty tart for dessert as well as a carafe of red wine (again at no extra charge). We ate in the sitting room at a small table by candlelight off of the family crested plates and used the old siver cutlery. It was all delicious and oh so romantic. I forgot to mention the bread that we had with breakfast and dinner .....it was omg good!! Loic explained that all of the family treasures had been hidden in a hidden room in the chateau when the Germans occupied the chateau during WW II. The last morning Loic took us on a private tour of the chateau. So much of the chateau is historical and hasn't been modernized. We especially enjoyed the chapel and the artwort and we really loved this place. If you are looking for a modernized chateau with room service etc. that has been totally restored then this isn't the place for you. If you are looking for an authentic chateau that shows some wear and tear because of its age with a family history of 600 years then you will love this place.

What a wonderful experience to stay in a castle and to be made to feel so welcome. I would highly recommend a stay here for anyone looking for authenticity. The personal guided tour by Loic was excellent.
