With its entrance tucked off the landing of a seemingly secret back staircase, this suite feels magical from the start. The door opens to Pierre Frey’s Au Bord Du Lac panoramic, which remarkably resembles the distant view of the Chateau from the south end of the property. Decidedly elegant, the cream-hued walls and original oak flooring highlight the beauty of the suite’s remarkable angles and architecture. The petite salon has a built-in settee over which hangs an exquisite 18th-century painting of a lovely maiden in repose with her companion dog and sheep, quite likely set in the Loire valley countryside. Anchoring the expansive view from the corner arched casement windows is the 11th-century church in the quintessentially French village of Le Grand-Lucé. The bathroom is delightful with a clawfoot tub, separate marble-clad shower, and loads of Maison Caulières bath and beauty products.
