The 3 gites at Les Petites Cignones are set in a beautiful courtyard which also includes the owner's property. We stayed in the 3 bedroomed gite, Le Pluvier and were very impressed by it's overall cleanliness and facilities. The gite was equipped with just about everything you would need for a week's sightseeing in the Loire Valley and felt really like a home from home. The swimming pool area and grounds are lovely (shame the weather wasn't better so that we could make more use of them!), and the private garden was lovely, with a large patio perfect for sitting out on in the evenings. Sandra & Ian were excellent hosts and obviously work hard to keep the property spick and span.
We would definitely recommend Les Petites Cignones and would certainly consider going there again.
Spacious gite, caring owners, well equipped kitchen, brilliant barbecue, evening sunsets, warm pool. What more can we say! Upstairs the bedrooms get hot in summer but that is a minor problem. Descartes is a nice non- touristy town with good food shops.
