Richelieu, Indre-et-Loire, Centre
FOUR STAR LUXURY FARMHOUSE with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, secure walled garden, private heated pool and solar shower.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We joined the above reviewer at this lovely farmhouse in the Loire Valley. The property is a bit remote (not within walking distance of grocery stores). The town of Richelieu is approximately a 10 minute drive from the house. The home's interior is comfortably decorated and has a well stocked kitchen (lots of pots and pans for a variety of cooking). The walled garden (backyard) is well maintained and includes an above ground swimming pool. The house is located within easy driving distance of many of the Loire Valley's beautiful chateaux and abundant vineyards.... a winning combination!
We took day trips each day and returned home to cook dinner and relax with a glass or two of wine.
I would highly recommend this property for families who are looking for a comfortable spot to relax with children, and to groups of friends who want to explore the Loire Valley countryside.

This property has been lovingly restored by Christine and John Huband. My friends and I could not have asked for a better place as a base to do our touring of the Loire. Though Le Roitelet is in the country, it is close enough to Richelieu to make obtaining food and other supplies very easy. The interior is extremely well maintained, but gives a welcoming feeling. In other words, you don't feel uneasy sitting on a chair, or using the fireplace. For those who enjoy cooking, the kitchen is well stocked. Everything is handy. The owners were extremely gracious in taking about 45 minutes to show us everything and walk us around the place. It's also handy having them next door in case minor things go awry. We had some questions about various sites and John brought over some things he found on the Internet. I think that if you're looking for a quiet place from which to launch day excursions, I think you can't miss with Le Roitelet. Some mornings I'd go out for a jog and all I could hear was... more
