Domaine de la Courbe
What We Love
- A rural riverside stay in Le Lude, with breakfast, optional dinner, spa access and moreEnjoying unlimited access to the spa - ideal after a day in the great outdoors
- Making the most of the facilities, with a walk in the gardens or a dip in the pool
- Cycle hire is included - the best way to explore the beautiful Loire countryside
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, near the driving circuit and 24-hour museum in Le Mans. 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 changes to relax on the pleasant elevated terrace, which overlooks an inviting swimming pool.
Elsewhere you’ll find an inviting swimming pool and a garden that’s perfect for relaxing with a good book, surrounded by flowers and the sound of birdsong and the babbling river. Explore Le Loir’s beautifully unspoilt 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.

How to Get There
we spent 2 nights. room called la la fontaine that is more of a garage transformed into one more room for extra revenue ! Waiting for 15mn before getting a table for breakfast everyday. except the restaurant that is very good at dinner times, this place is supposed to host 10-15 rooms max with its staffing and infrastructure.
Previous reviews by others have commented on the limited menu and items not being available. This echoes our experience too. Which is a shame because it's a beautiful place in a lovely quiet location on the edge of the Loir river. Reception staff were friendly and helpful and a good breakfast with lots of choice was on offer.
Highly recommend this place. Very nice area, beautiful site at the Loire river. Also the small villages are very nice to visit, all the castles are beautiful and impressive. The hotel has an excellent restaurant with nice and professional staff.
a good hotel to stay: we stood one night in a "traditional room" with a view on the garden,
it was nice, dinner is very good with a view on the river.
breakfast is also good
I recommand this hotel if you need quite
We arrived tired and grumpy and found the beautiful surroundings soothing. There is a ruined waterwheel and underground cave spa and sauna. We slept to the sound of the river tumbling over the weir. Staff were friendly. We booked to stay again.
