“Perfect gite in beautiful relaxing location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Just returned from a wonderful stay at Luxury Loire Gites. The Saule gite is furnished to a very high standard. spacious and very comfortable. Surrounded by lovely open space with lots of things to keep us all occupied - boules , skittles pitch, children's playground and great pool with a most amazing retractable cover which meant that you could swim in any weather. My daughter practically lived in the pool for the fortnight!
There is a lot to do in the surrounding area from visiting local markets, beautiful medieval towns and chateaux all within reasonable driving distance. We also canoed on some of the rivers nearby and cycled around the quiet country lanes free from any busy traffic.
The owners are incredibly hospitable and were very helpful and knowledgeable on the local area.
A splendid location and one which I look forward to visiting again soon.

“Absolutely fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Marc and Marie are perfect hosts to their guests at la richaudiere. We stayed in Saule Gite which was fully equipped with all mod cons and all those extras which some French gites do not supply. Extensive grounds which Marc lovingly tends, wonderful enclosed swimming pool which opens up in hot weather. Also Bicycles with helmets available to cycle around the area full of sunflowers and small villages. Marie amd Marc will ensure that you will experience a perfect place for a relaxed holiday in France.

“Wonderful hospitality in a beautiful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We stayed at the Luxury Loire Gites for a month and it really was a home from home. The couple who run the complex made our stay very special, going out of their way to help us, so much so we felt we were staying with friends.

You will struggle to find a comparable place to stay, which provides this standard of accommodation at this price. The Gites are well appointed and the pool is excellent, heated with an all weather cover that means if you are staying out of season you can still enjoy the facilities.

The location is right next to a beautiful National Park, close to several pretty towns and chateaux. It is around an hour's drive to the most famous Loire attractions, but the countryside on route is lovely.

“Relaxed, friendly, and superb quality...a home from home !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012 for a stay in August 2011

We booked this over the internet. On arrival we couldn't have been made more welcome. The place was of a very high standard with lots of good facilities (the kids loved the heated pool and playground). A lovely, relaxed setting where you can just escape from the world (after 5 days at Disneyland Paris it was just what we were after).

Plenty to explore in the surrounding area (Chatteaux heaven !!)

Would happily return.....
