A domain rooted in history

From the origins…

It is on the site of a Roman villa that a monastery chose to settle in this island surrounded by two arms of the Cher (the current railway line occupying one of these two arms).

A fire destroyed this monastery and enabled the emergence of the Domaine de l’Isle as we know it today. The architect who came to beautify the Château de Chenonceau then took advantage of this marvelous site to build his château which he called “Isle”. The residence however remained modest, “château” being the name given, at the time, to the residences which could accommodate two horses in a room of the house.

…to the development…

The stronghold of Isle was ceded in 1737 by the abbey of Villeloin to Claude Dupin, farmer general, owner of the neighboring Château de Chenonceau and grandfather of George Sand.

In 1855, the house belonged to Jean Nicolas Marion de Maubeuge who carried out a first extension. Then in 1874, the property belonged to Louis Octave Berthelot de Bléré who undertook major work on the house and gave it its current form.

In 1987, Denis Gandon then transformed it into a hotel and developed this activity until 2020.

In 2021, a new page in the history of Domaine de l’Isle opens

with the launch of a guest house activity…

Luxury, calm and voluptuousness

Rooms and suites with independent access to each other preserving the privacy of our guests. A limited number of guests (15 at most) which enables everyone to enjoy generous common spaces in peace. And this, especially since the Domaine is established on a wooded park of more than 13 ha.







The interior common spaces consist mainly in - a reception that will facilitate your information about the guest house and its services - a dining room with its fireplace which will serve in particular as a buffet for your breakfasts - a bright and invigorating breakfast room - a large veranda where you can enjoy aperitifs, glasses of local wine or pleasant breakfasts.


A wooded park of over 13 ha for contemplative and inspiring walks with its pond, streams and stable. The land slopes gently down to the Cher. Along which you can stroll, hike, cycle or horseback, join the canoe-kayak base which adjoins the area and have a drink or lunch / dinner at the nearby restaurant Bistrot Quai. And, of course, join the Château de Chenonceau which is less than 2 km from the domain.
