“Makes travelling with a baby easy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Anjou was a home from home. Sue and Jon provided everything we needed for ourselves and our six month old baby so it was the perfect choice for our first family holiday. The gite was spotless and the welcome was warm - what more could you ask for? We made good use of the recommended days out. Angers and Chinon were a highlight. September is a lovely time to visit as you're in the heart of the harvest happening all around you. And Les Fleurs' delicious Comice pears are ripe and heavy! Highly recommended.

Liked best: Having a lovely place to relax in the evenings since we can't spend nights out with a baby
Liked least: The scary dog down the road who barked when I ran past (not remotely connected to Anjou!)

“A superb base for holidaying in the Loire”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We have stayed in Anjou at Les Fleurs on four occasions and each time have been so impressed by the experience. The property is very pretty and very well equipped. Hosts Jon and Sue go above and beyond with their customer service without being intrusive, fitting out the house with appropriate equipment, toys and games as needed (we travelled with two children aged 5 and 2) and providing a wealth of information on what to do in the region.

The secure property is beautifully situated, surrounded by vineyards with a lovely garden, with kids toys, a great pool and paddling pool, swings etc. The organic fruit which guests are welcome to pick adds another dimension to breakfast! Because there are only three units in Les Fleurs, it never feels crowded. A new wine tasting room (wines are available to buy on site) and superb meals served in your own garden three times a week (optional but a must-do) are also worth experiencing.

The area itself offers far more to do than can be experienced in just one holiday. In addition to the many wonderful chateaux and wineries, there is a superb zoo just 5 minutes away and the historic large town of Saumur 20 minutes away which has so much to offer, including the biggest tank museum in the world!

All in all Anjou comes very highly recommended as an outstanding base for a holiday in the spectacular Loire Valley

“Fabulous gite and holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We had a fantastic holiday staying in Anjou, the gite was a great base for enjoying the Loire. The gite was really spacious and clean througout with everything you need for a perfect stay. The garden was the ideal place for a lovely BBQ accompanied with wine bought from Sue and Jon! There are many beautful chateau's in the surrounding area, we visited Amboise, Clos Luce and Chenonceau. The Clos Luce Chateau was the final home of Leonardo Da Vinci which was the theme throughout including a huge display of his models in the expansive gardens which even featured a river for pedal boats. We visited some local wine makers to taste some of the regions famous wines. The Zoo in Doue La Fontaine which is five minutes from the gite was a brilliant day for all with an impressive range of animals and displays. Following a days sightseeing Sue's evening meals were a welcome treat, authentic rustic French fayre full of flavour and fresh ingredients. Restaurants would be proud to serve such meals. We'll be back. Thank you Sue and Jon.

“The perfect base for exploring the beautiful Loire Valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

Les Fleurs really is a find, a very pretty property, excellently maintained in a beautiful rural setting, yet so well located to enjoy all that the region has to offer and only a short distance from wonderful historic towns and villages. The gites are very well equipped and real care was taken by the owners Jon and Sue Fletcher to cater for our specific needs. We travelled with small children, so were delighted with the toys, high chair, baby monitor etc., as well as the outdoor play area and pool. There is so much to do in the area that will have you returning again and again (and not just for the great wine!). We have just got back from our third holiday in Les Fleurs and would not think of staying anywhere else. All in all, the perfect base for exploring all that the Loire Valley has to offer.

“Rosy memories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2011 for a stay in May 2011

Sue and Jon's gites lie on the appropriately named Route of the Roses. Roses too provide a scented, multi-coloured backdrop to the gite gardens whilst Jon's locally sourced rose sparkled through the rosy glow of peaceful evenings in the garden. We were there in late Spring with the sunshine, the flowers and the strawberries by the pool. There were lovely ripe cherries down the lane too.
Nearby is the really interesting Bioparc, the Zoo de Doue which is filled with seemingly happy animals who looked in superb condition. Not much further away are all the well known attractions of the Chateaux towns and the vineyards. All around it seems, are little surprises you find in France like the the soap makers with the woodpeckers at St Martin des Candres .
After a day out it was always good to return to the gite. Sue and Jon, without ever being intrusive, seemed to anticipate what you might need. Their attention to detail really characterises their approach .
What we really appreciated though was Sue's cooking and trying some of Jon's wines to go with it. What a combination of pleasures! It's something we often look back on and something we look forward to doing again.
We were looked after by two attentive and nice people. It makes all the difference and it leaves you with a comfortable, well satisfied feeling.
