“Even Better the Second Time!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Perfect location - the garden wall is the bank of the Loire on a most beautiful spot on the river, where the Vienne joins the Loire and the river bends so whilst preparing food you look back up a 3 mile stretch of river
Perfectly fitted out as a holiday home at any time of the year
Perfect for a family holiday
Perfect for sightseeing - the closest Chateau is between you and the bakers - which is all of 5 minutes walk along the bank of the Loire. Situated on the border of two villages and both Candes St Martin and Montsoreau are listed as two of the most beautiful villages in France
Perfect for cycling in the beautiful Loire area - and walking, and picnics - if you ever want to leave the garden and its views
Perfect for wine lovers - Chinon, Saumur, Bourgueil and St Nicolas de Bourgueil appellations are all local and chances for trying and buying more wine than most livers can stand - and that's just in Montosoreau

Oh and did I mention the owners who are perfect hosts - arriving with wine and chocolate desserts.

You have no reason to go anywhere else ever again. It is a lovely gite, a truly stunning location and the only place we have been back to and we will return again.

We stayed at La Confluence in June 2011 and was a most enjoyable visit. The small beautiful village of Candes St Martin is a delight. We have stayed in a number of cottages in rural France over many years and this is by far the best. It is superbly presented and fitted out, spotless and with lovely peaceful views where the two rivers, Loire and Vien, meet. The gite is free standing within the owner's property. James is a wonderful and discreet host and he and his wife are extremely welcoming.

We hope to visit the Loire again some time in the not too distant future and we would not consider staying anywhere else but La Confluence.

Our family of five from Australia are enjoying the most magic week in this gite. It's easily the most lovely place we have stayed in France. The quality of the accommodation is definitely four star and the views directly to the river are just breathtaking. Our hosts are very welcoming and we would highly recommend this gorgeous cottage.
