The Toue du Relais
Our private suite floats now on the river in the Loire Valley… The Château de Chambord is the backdrop to our very special new hotel room.
From July 1st, 2020, guests have been able to book a magical night onboard the Toue du Relais, a traditional flat-bottomed Loire riverboat that has been designed a luxurious floating suite for two people.
Commissioned by local craftspeople, this large toue cabanée is moored on the Cosson Canal, just next to the château and its formal French gardens. As the only hotel in the château’s enormous private 5,440-hectare Domaine, guests of Relais de Chambord can go back in time and have it all to themselves.
Inside, the toue cabanée offers its guests the same sleek, contemporary feel as the hotel. Designed by Stefania di Petrillo, the interior (a large bedroom, with a kitchenette and bathroom with a shower) is elegantly dressed in wood and leather, creating an incredibly relaxing atmosphere. A true private haven. In the morning, after watching the sun rise gently over Renaissance turrets and chimneys, breakfast is delivered, ready and waiting on deck, with France’s most picturesque château as the backdrop.
