“Spacious and comfortable”
Reviewed September 16, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This is a spotlessly clean, comfortable and well appointed gite located just to the south of Blois. The hosts, William and Diane, are charming and very helpful. The groceries and wine on arrival were very much appreciated after a long journey. There is plenty to see and visit in the area. The local chateau in Cheverny is well worth a visit as is that in Valencay. We enjoyed them both as they were self guided and not too large, there is only so much Louis XVI furniture that one can admire before needing a glass of wine! Speaking of wine Cheverny has an excellent tasting centre featuring local wine, the Cour-Cheverny made with the local romorantin grape is very pleasant as are many of the other local wines; so much wine so little time. There are numerous good places to eat locally, ranging from crepes to a gourmet offering. There are supermarkets and shops within a few miles for almost every need. Wifi is available but the connection can be a bit hit and miss. William and Diane have a fund of local knowledge and offer a pleasant, ,comfortable, quiet place to stay. Thank you.

“Excellent base for Loire region”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A warm welcome from owners Diane and William, beautiful cottage in lovely grounds, drinks, milk, butter, fresh bread and delicious home made jam on our arrival, cottage was very clean and comfortable and hospitable hosts full of local knowledge and handy tourist information, they were excellent with our four young children (4,5 yr twins and 8) and made us all feel so at home.
Everything you'd need was available in cottage (inc washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets and detergent etc) and nothing was too much trouble.
Our youngest left a toy behind and we were emailed straight away and was returned back to the uk.
We will definitely return to this lovely gem.

“well worth the jpurney”
Reviewed June 20, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The Gite is set in large grounds and is extremely clean,modern and spacious.
There is a lovely private area for your relaxation and BBQs
.There is also a small swimming pool and a swings area for the children.

The Gite is well equipped with an ample supply of matching crockery,cutlery and glassware.
Mine hosts Bill and Diane are very friendly and helpful.
Should we visit this area of France again, we would not hesitate to stay with them .

There are many beautiful Chateaux in the area including the Chateau de Cheverny
This Chateau has an exhibition about "Herge's Adventures of TinTin," as Herge featured it in his works.
The attached golf course has an 18 hole course and a 3 hole course which can be played around as many times as you like..The 18 holes are quite challenging,with quite a lot of water.

We are a family of 4 and stayed at Le Clos de Bel Air from July 2013 for 8 days. The welcome from the owners is warm and friendly and they are extremely knowledgeable on the local area, which came in very handy when planning things to do. The welcome pack was gratefully received as was the pristine condition of the gite which was exceptionally well equipped. Our kids absolutely adored the swings in the garden and the pool. It is a perfect setting if you're thinking of visiting the Loire Valley. The property's situation is great, close to Blois, a bustling town, many of the great Chateaux's, vineyards and places of great beauty. If you feel like taking it easy at the property then Diane and William make you very welcome and are happy to chat although also are not in any way over-bearing. We would definitely recommend this property and its location, we feel it's a hidden gem in what can be a minefield of gites / holiday properties in France. Can't fault this place....perfect, would definitely return!

“Perfect location for the Loire Valley”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Extremely comfortable and clean. Diane and Bill were excellent hosts and were very helpful with plenty of suggestions. Their knowledge of the area was first rate from chateaus to markets, golf courses to dining. Take bikes if you can as the terrain is pretty flat. Blois was a fascinating city full of history. Chateau at Chiverny was close by and well worth a visit as was Chambord.
