We visited Michemin with our two children (2&7) and the owner met us at the property to show us around/provided us with local knowledge/suggestions. During our stay we were surprised at just how spacious this house was, the kitchen was well equipped, lovely big rooms, and the added bonus of fresh fruit from the grounds trees. The swimming pool was ample for the kids to play in and well fenced off which helped keep our 2 year old out and free to roam the garden without worry. The house is in a lovely location, perfect for walking/cycling the surrounding forest and sunflower fields (there is also a lovely play park just outside Villentrois). We have already recommended the house to friends, a recommendation not given lightly, but the owner was a pleasure to meet and the property exceeded our expectations giving us the perfect relaxing holiday. more

Michemin is a large house with plenty of space inside and out for a totally relaxing holiday in the picturesque French countryside. The owner was their to greet us when we arrived and gave us a tour of the house and its facilities and returned to wish us bon voyage once our holiday was over. The house is situated in a tiny hamlet of eight houses surrounded by fields of wheat, corn and sunflowers and the gardens and pool area are secluded by fruit trees and shrubs. indoors the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need and the living areas are more than adequate. The beds were very comfy and we were spolit for choice with the number of bathrooms. The nearest village, Valencay has a beautiful chateau and a lovely farmers market selling fruit, vegetables, saucisson and cheese etc which is well worth a visit and there are plenty of other attractions and places of interest within a reasonable driving distance. This is our third house rental in France and definitely... more
