Manoir de la Groye
The perfect place for your stay in the Loire valley
As architect and landscape architect, we have carefully renovated the interiors and the expansive gardens to create a preserved romantic haven, striking a balance between antique and contemporary to offer our guests optimal comfort.
The large pool, settled in a southern-style garden, is an invitation to swim; the large red living room and its library are worth a stop too; freely-accessible bicycles give you the opportunity to discover the Loire landscapes; 12 acres of garden are there for you to either go for a walk or rest; the main square of the village, its bakery and its two restaurants, are a short walk away.
Our guesthouse and its rated four stars for comfort cottages are your ideal starting point to discover an authentic area, between nature and culture, castles and vineyards.
Welcome to the Manoir de la Groye!
A place for history
Built between 1585 and 1595 for the gentleman Charles Rogeron, the main building is a magnificent example of late Renaissance architecture.
Its terraced gardens planted with Tuscan cypresses and set in the hilly, wine-growing landscape add to the Italian spirit of this unique place.
The manor consists of two wings: The main one with the stair tower and the loggia is the initial construction, while the other was added in the 1940s.
The loggia is without doubt the most remarkable architectural element, with the elegant ribbed vault, the roof à l’impériale, the large curved stairs and the two sculpted entrance doors.
The beautifully sculpted dormer windows and the échauguette overlooking the Loire valley add to the graceful elegance of the Manoir.
The outbuilding is a charming farm building, with a à la Mansart-shaped roof, built in the 17th century and initially used as dairy and stables. Its beautiful looks result from an ambitious renovation project conducted in the 1960s. Initially set directly against the hillside with a blind back wall, the respectful renovation added a totally reinvented but traditional south facade.
A place for nature
The buildings have fundamental ecological qualities, with simple, naturally breathing, sustainable, natural or re-used materials, combined with traditional construction techniques (straw and lime coating and antique re-used timber structures).
In the everyday life of the Domaine, we follow the ecological principles as closely as possible:
- Organic waste is composted, and the rest recycled;
- Chickens are here to eat your leftovers … and give us eggs;
- Cleaning products are either organic or home-made, the linens are made of natural fiber;
- Garden maintenance is ecological and pesticides-free, with a differentiated management to preserve natural meadows;
- ‘Ouessant’ black sheep mow the arboretum
- Beehives and a vegetable garden provide organic honey, fruits and vegetables.
