“Great accommodation in beautiful country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed here with our two teenaged kids in July 2014. Great accommodation - lots of space. The kitchen is well equipped - we ate in most nights and usually sat out on the outdoor tables near the poplar trees under the incredible Loire Valley sky. All we heard were the crickets and the soft, warm breeze through the trees. The pool is great. The place is clean and spacious. The upstairs bedrooms are airconditioned. Downstairs doesn't need it - always cool. We travelled to various chateaux in the Loire most days. You're in the Southern part of the Loire Valley near Descartes, but all the main chateaux are still accessible - comfortable drives away - making nice half day outings in most cases. Sue and Trevor are the perfect hosts, even leaving lovely cheese and champagne in the kitchen for our arrival. Lots of good walks around back country roads in beautiful farm land as well.

“Excellent Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We've been to this area before. This was by far the best and most well equipped Gite we have been in. The owners were extremely helpful and made our stay great. The entire property location is very well maintained with gardens and private terraces. The locale is very rural so don't expect a raucous night life. However if you are after total relaxation this is the place. The countryside is beautiful and the food and wine is great. It's obvious that the region is suffering from the economic downturn though this highlighted the hospitality of the local people. There is plenty to do around the area and you can pick how much or how little you want to do. The support of the owners to all our needs made it a fantastic trouble free rest. Can't recommend this place highly enough.
