La Confiance
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We Had a two night stay while travelling south.Our room was clean and well equipped.The continental breakfasts were generous and both evening meals cooked by Chris were very good comprising several courses.Indeed the first course on the second night was large enough to be the main course.An appo and generous wine was included. La Confiance was conveniently situated for the birding spots we wished to visit.Our coffee flask was filled in the mornings and a picnic was prepared for our onward journey Chris and Sue were excellent hosts and we would not hesitate to stay again and recommend to friends.

Room Tip: Some rooms are accesses by quite steep stairs so let them know if you have mobility problems

I stayed there to visit the Parc de la Haute Touche for two days this March. It was really beautiful and calm around the accommodation. The cottage where I stayed was well-equipped and comfortable with three beds and a bathroom. Chris, one of the owners, was an excellent cook who served tasty French with good wine. They were kind of me and helped me a lot during my stay. I hardly speak French and it was good that they speak English. I highly recommend you to stay there when you go around the area.

Another wonderful stay at La Confiance - my fourth! As always, my visit proved to be a real tonic - such a great place to re-charge your batteries. I cannot fault Chris and Sue's hospitality, they go out of their way to make you feel welcome. During my stay I managed to go and see the beautiful Chateau Chambord - if you get a chance it's well worth a visit! If you want peace and tranquility then La Confiance is the place for you. I cannot wait to return.

Thanks to Chris and Sue the start to our holiday couldn't have been better. We were running behind time but a quick phone call put us at ease. Arrive when you can we were told.
Dinner was superb and, though we were late it was all freshly prepared for us and Chris and Sue joingbus over coffee to bring us up to date, point out the places of interest and have a general chat really set us at ease and ready forms good nights sleep in a really comfortable room.
Breakfast was another shared affair and when we had done a little exploring our lunch was packed up for usnusing the local things that we had bought before we shared a final cup of coffee and set off on our travels.
Thanks so much. Be sure we'll see you both again

Our family stayed with Chris and Sue whilst travellig down to the South of France. To be received with a great welcome and then presented with a lovely meal was just perfect. Both Chris and Sue were great hosts and the breakfast was by far the best we have had! We would definately stay with them again.

We had a lovely relaxing holiday here, but there was plenty to see and do. We stayed with our four children, aged from 5-15 (and they all shared the bigger L'Azay bedroom very comfortably for a fortnight)
Sue and Chris were wonderful hosts, as they had the perfect balance of friendliness and advice, without intruding on our relaxation. There were eggs, milk, bread, and some lovely home-made plum jam waiting for us on arrival (as well as a bottle of lovely red wine)
We had a mixture of lazy days in the garden on the sun loungers interspersed with a spot of badminton and days when we went further afield to explore.
Sue and Chris gave what may be described as the expected tourist advice, but then went further by suggesting things to amuse our range of ages and providing books/toys/games/videos in the gite. Sue even let me use her ipad to check out a few websites, and Chris was a dab hand at devising treasure hunts in the garden.
Our 15 year old daughter had her birthday while we were there and we had a fabulous barbecue cooked by Chris. They also decorated with bunting, gave her a card and Sue made the most amazing cake I have ever tasted!
We would definitely consider returning and maybe taking the third bedroom, as it would be perfect if a grandparent wanted to come along too.

We stayed here previously (see September 2010) and returned for a week (s/c) in June 2012, now with a very active toddler aged 3. This time, we let the train take the strain. Leaving Leeds at 06:15hrs, we arrived in Poitiers via London St Pancras and Lille Europe to pick up our hire car and were starting our fabulous home-cooked meal with black redstarts and hoopoes on the lawn by 7pm that evening - an 11 hr journey door to door of stress free travel. Nothing has changed in the intervening period. The garden remains idyllic and Niamh could use the two swings in the trees (which was according to her, the best bit) and mum and dad could relax(ish) in the garden.
Away from La Confiance, easy access to La Brenne NP, various rural French villages and a reasonable playground in Martizay (follow signs for the campervan/ RV campsite).

We'll definitely be back for a 3rd...4th...visit; with another baby/ toddler so just as well there are two swings in La Confiance's garden. And Chris is great at turning a tarpaulin sheet in to a toddler tent where "no adults are allowed!".
