Le Prieure

Your basket is empty

Manor house overlooking the Loire close to medieval Saumur

Perched high above the Loire and gazing across to medieval Saumur, Le Prieuré boasts a hard-to-beat setting. Sipping an aperitif on the terrace with the Loire sweeping past is hard to beat.

Know It All

Hit the spot
On the banks of the Loire, near medieval Saumur.

Come here for...
● A hillside Loire retreat with superb views. ● Beautiful parkland grounds. ● All the feel of a grand period residence – including the patina of age.

Special features
Huge rooms in the older part of the property have rich fabrics and period furniture, while chalet style cottages in the grounds offer more contemporary surrounds. Better rooms have private terraces with lovely river views.

Pillow Talk
Opt for a Deluxe room with your own terrace overlooking the Loire, or one of the suites with a vast stone fireplaces and all the feel of a period residence.

Eat & Drink

Dining in
Waist-to-ceiling Loire views are not the only attraction at Le Prieuré’s restaurant. Taste some of the best regional cooking around: raviolis de langoustines à la crème de truffes or maybe filet de canette caramélisée au gingembre et citron vert should get your mouth watering, while a bottle or two of the local Saumur, Champigny or Chinon wines will go down a treat.

Buffet breakfast is served until 10:30 am.

Room service
Available 24 hours a day.


See & Do
Wander among elegant Saumur’s half-timbered houses and cobbled streets or – if you’re lucky – see Sir Mick Jagger batting for the local Saumur cricket club. Taste some sparkling Saumur brut at a tasting in the underground limestone caves of the Bouvet-Ladubay vineyard, or brush up on your horsemanship at Saumur’s Cadre Noir school, one of the world’s top equestrian centres.

Take off in a hot air balloon or helicopter for the best views around. If you prefer terra firma, the great châteaux of the Loire Valley – Chenonceau, Amboise, Ussé and Chambord – await exploration.

Diary Dates
The heroic maid of Orléans is honoured in the two-day Fête de Jeanne d’Arc, with a huge procession.
