We had one of the 1 bedroom vineyard suites and it was spacious and comfortable - super king sized bed, good shower, well-equipped kitchen with quality appliances; could have done with a few more saucepans though. But the Big Downside which we should have spotted...More

Château des Sablons is a beautiful 18th century château with a white stone façade. It is ideally situated on the edge of the medieval market town of Bourgueil which is amidst some the greatest castles in the heart of the Loire Valley.

The easiest way is to take the TGV high speed train from Paris' Montparnasse train station to Tours or St Pierre des Corps, a suburb of Tours, and then rent a car. The TGV takes about an hour and then the drive to the Chateau takes about 50 minutes.
You can also take a TGV into Tours and then connect to a local train to Port Boulet, which is the nearest train station.
If you leave Paris around 12:15 p.m., with the connection you get to Port Boulet in less than two hours.
