    Rental Home –

    A beautiful stone gite dating back to 17th century restored and new to the holiday rental market for 2013. Located in the heart of the Loire Valley it is a perfect base for exploring the numerous historical sites and gastronomic delights that are sure to make your holiday truly memorable. We look forward to welcoming you.

    We fell in love with the house the moment we saw it. We love living here and hope you will enjoy your holiday in this beautiful part of France. There is so much to see here, we have been living here for five years and have only seen a small part of it.

    Spreading from East to West, within 60 miles you can travel around the Loire Valley and take time to explore the world-famous châteaux of Chambord, Chenonceau and Chinon. The area is rich in history. At Amboise you will...

Le Petit Chaume was a great find for us. It is a very spacious one bedroom gite, which is extremely comfortable and is very well presented with high quality furniture and fittings.
The gite is an old barn, within the garden walls of the owner's house, which has been restored to a very high standard and has its own entrance and private terrace. There are some very nice quirky bits to the building, which add to its charm. The terrace is off the bedroom through a low doorway and has lovely views of the surrounding countryside and is a good sun trap, as well as being great for star gazing at night as there is no light pollution.
It is an extremely quiet area, yet a lot of the major Loire chateaux are within easy reach for visitors. We also had some very good long walks in the surrounding area, along the small rural roads and tracks, some through the forests.
The owner, Kate, could not have been more welcoming or friendly and was very helpful with suggestions of where to go...

We spent a lovely week at Le Petit Chaume, The gite's immaculately clean accommodation was excellent, from the extremely comfortable kingsized bed to the high specification kitchen it was like a home from home. It had its own private entrance however Kate and David, who were very friendly and pleasant were available for advice regarding restaurants, places to vist etc. They had also provided a very useful welcome pack and there were even little extra's for your use in the bathroom. This is one of the best holiday accommodations we have ever used. There are plenty of places to visit including Tours, Saumur, Amboise, and various Chateaux, However a car is an essential since it is fairly isolated. We wished we had stayed longer. more

Management response:

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. more
