We've visited a number of times over the last few years. This year we stopped over one night in early August and then for a week on the way back at the end of the month. It's a lovely personal site with much to do either walking or cycling from it. The river next to the site and Chenonceau a little further are easily accessible. Other chateaux are within reasonable driving distance and Tours can be accessed by train from the nearby station. The English owners create a friendly atmosphere and put on regular events with an inclusive meal and sometimes live music.
