An escape-it-all hideaway in the unspoiled Loire Valley, with a lovely spa and riverside restaurant - includes breakfast, spa access and optional dinner

Occupying a former 19th-century paper mill near Le Lude in Pays-de-la-Loire, Domaine de la Courbe oozes traditional country charm and character in an idyllic riverside location. It’s a member of Relais du Silence – European hotels selected for their away-from-it all rural setting, gourmet restaurant, eco-credentials and wellness facilities. Simple yet welcoming rooms are housed in the original main building or a separate one-storey annexe in the grounds. You'll have plenty of chances to relax on the pretty terrace, which overlooks an inviting swimming pool.

Elsewhere you’ll find a garden that's perfect for relaxing with a good book, surrounded by flowers and the sound of the babbling river. Explore the Loire's beautifully unspoiled countryside by bicycle and, upon your return, soothe weary limbs to your heart’s content in the on-site spa – a cocoon-like retreat where you can leave the outside world behind. Suitably refreshed, enjoy exquisite gourmet dining in the rustic restaurant, which features panoramic river views.

Good to know

Please note that Wi-Fi is available in communal areas only.


Extremely spacious Traditional rooms ooze simple rustic charm, with wood-beamed ceilings, traditional tiled floors and a warm, earthy colour palette. Lots of stripped-back wood and wall-hung artwork add a vintage-chic feel for a lovely home-from-home vibe.

On top of featuring mind-settling river views, the restaurant serves classic French fare with the odd modern twist, using locally sourced produce and seasonal ingredients – think goats' cheese bruschetta, pork filet mignon, a tempting cheese platter and spiced red fruit for dessert.

Please note that due to the fresh produce used for the gastronomic cuisine, there may be some waiting time with meals.


Take some time off in the spacious spa, whose 1,000 square metres take in a lovely indoor 29 degree-heated pool that glitters invitingly beneath exposed-stone arches, along with whirlpool baths, a steam room and relaxation area. You can also enjoy a soothing massage or body treatment (extra charge applies).


Domaine de la Courbe sits on the bank of the Loir river, near Le Mans, Le Lude and La Flèche, which you can reach by canoe should you so wish. This part of the Loire is teeming with picture-perfect castles and bright green, rolling country hills. Further afield you can visit Angers, Tours and Le Mans, each no more than an hour's drive away.
