We had the pleasure of staying here for 3 weeks - a mixture of a holiday plus having French lessons with the owner Sylvie. A spacious place, which covers everything you will need whilst away. Beautiful gardens constantly tended to by Mark and Sylvie. Fontevraud itself is a beautiful town and the Abbey is amazing. The forest nearby is wonderful... More

Wonderful week spent in this most divine Gite. The Gite has everything, and more, you could possibly need whilst on holiday. Location is perfect and the grounds beautiful, easy to see the garden is tended by Sylvie and Mark with love and care. Sylvie and Mark are fantastic hosts, cheerful, approachable, relaxed with a wealth of knowledge of their area... More

This quaint and comfortable gite has all the modern conveniences including access to a beautiful garden paradise complete with roses, a pond and a wonderful modern salt water pool! The house is airy and spacious - the highlight for me was the comfortable sitting area and the wonderful bathroom with two sinks, a walk in shower and luxury tub. The... More

I enjoyed my two week stay in this comfortable and well appointed gîte (guesthouse). The bedrooms were spacious as was the kitchen. The highlight was the lovely sitting room and dining area. It was a welcome luxury to have a washing machine as well. Sylvie and Mark welcomed us to use their swimming pool and sit in their garden which... More

Our recent holiday at La Samsonelle was originally determined by having fortunately won 2 nights' stay there. We added another 2 nights and can only say we wished we'd had more time in this delightful place. Our hostess Sylvie was a charming and friendly person who gave us a warm welcome to this lovely gite, which was immaculately kept, very... More

Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for our two weeks in the Loire region.. The gite is beautifully appointed, very comfortable and has everything you need. A big garden with frogs in the pond, a swimming pool and friendly cats - just super for relaxing. Sylvie and Mark were extremely pleasant and helpful with lots of interesting... More

We spent a week at La Samsonelle in July. It's the perfect location from which to explore Loire which has so much to offer from wineyards to attractions for the whole family. The cottage is very well equipped from the kitchen to toys for the kids. And of course, there's the swimming pool which our kids totally enjoyed. They couldn't... More

We loved our stay at Samsonelle. We were warmly welcomed by Sylvie and Mark who were always ready to answer questions and advise us on the area. (There is also plenty of maps and tourist information in the sitting room.) The Gite is modern and very comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed the garden complete with frogs in the pond and... More

We absolutely loved the gite La Samsonelle - well appointed and very typically French; well equipped; very comfortable; and central to the village restaurants, shops, crafts and the Abbey. The new swimming pool was a welcome bonus after a hot day touring. Lots of places of interest to visit around the Loire and of course, the wine tasting. Sylvie and... More

This Gite via its website promises a lot but fails to deliver -it may have struck hard times - we wonder why - but there was a number of issues that were not acceptable. It is attached to the main house with lack of privacy and the web site did not indicate very narrow stars to the second floor. A... More

I'm obviously devastated to see that you didn't enjoy your stay at our gite in Fontevraud L'Abbaye especially as on your departure you expressed that your stay was everything you had hoped for.. We do have the experience of long term stays . In fact, we had an Australian couple staying with us for 5 weeks in 2012 who came... More
