Chateau de Pray lies in the heart of the prestigious Loire Chateaux
Region. A mile west of the town center, this château from 1224 resembles
a tower-flanked castle on the Rhine. Inside, you'll find antlers,
hunting trophies, and a paneled drawing room with a fireplace and a
collection of antique oils.
There are 19 rooms at your disposal. The ones in the main building were
renovated in 1998 and are conservative and comfortable. The more
spacious rooms are near the ground floor, you’ll certainly particularly
appreciate the canopied four poster beds. Small but well-organized
bathrooms contain tubs and showers. The restaurant, elected "Table de
qualité" by Alain Ducasse and featuring a Michelin Star, offers Loire cuisine and fixed-price menus of
excellent quality; reservations are required.
Leisure is well known in the chateau region, wine tasting, chateaux
visits, medieval buildings but for nature lovers: the Aquarium de
Touraine with typical Loire river fish, and the Chinon, Bourgueil and
Vouvray vineyards and cellars. Golf, horse riding, tennis and cycling
facilities also nearby.
