We stayed here for 2 nights on our round trip through France while touring the Loire castles and it was absolutely perfect!! We highly, highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast, I just can't say enough about it.
We booked our room on line, it was very easy. The owners answered all our emails promptly.
The house is in the perfect location, centrally located to all the castles. It's right between Blois and Cheverny and pretty easy to find. A sign points the way off the main road. The house itself is located at the end of a quiet road, next to fields. It's perfectly quiet and very safe to leave your rental car overnight in a spot in the driveway.
When we first arrived, we thought it looked like the cottage of the 7 dwarves. The whole garden and house were overgrown with flowers of every color. It was incredibly beautiful. There are only two suites, each occupying one side of the house, with your own garden table and chairs out front. The owners' kitchen and living quarters are in the middle. Our room was large and super clean and cozy. The bathroom was sparkling clean. We were traveling with our 17 year old son and the room had a screen we could set up to give him some privacy. The complimentary internet connection worked perfectly.
The owners, Paul and Nicole, couldn't have been nicer! They welcomed us with cookies and orange juice in the garden. Breakfast was served outside also the first morning, the second morning we ate in their cozy kitchen since it was rainy and blustery outside. Our second night there, the power went out (no fault of the owners, the whole neighborhood went black during a thunderstorm) and we immediately heard a knock on our door and Paul appeared with candles. We wish we could have stayed longer and would definitely stay here again.
