Chateau de Marcay is built on the ruins of an XI century fortress to create the current XV century castle. Converted into a 4 star hotel and gourmet restaurant in 1973 the chateau is a luxury base in the Loire Valley. Located on rolling hills south of Chinon, the chateau is surrounded by peaceful countryside. Rooms in the chateau provide the full castle experience along with excellent dinning on the terrace and a stunning pool.
