As a fairly frequent traveler, I must say my week at La Vie d'Artiste was absolutely the best ever! Our party of three visited a week here and had the entire upstairs to ourselves. One of the most important gifts a host can give a guest is privacy when desired, and this was a perfect space for the three of us. Large beautiful rooms with private baths in a lovely scenic area of central France along the Cher River. To accomodate us, our hostess Lynn went over and above board to meet our every whim. From the local bakery we had delicious French pastries for breakfast, we saw the sights in Saint Aignan and Tours, one evening we picnicked by the Cher River with wine we purchased at a local winery (another side trip), we visited the Caves Champignonnieres des Roches (mushroom caves) and the lovely Chateau de Chambord and Chateau de Chenonceau, all within minutes from home. A visit to the local farmers market to buy fresh vegetables and a shopping excursion to Amboise were lots of fun. In Tours we visited the Saint Gatien Cathedral and had lunch on the square in with friends (just like in the movies). The second week we spent in Paris with our own excellent private tour guide, Lynn, where we saw everything we had on our list of things we wanted to do. What a wonderful trip this was ~~ I'm ready to go back again!
