“Lovely relaxing stay”
Reviewed August 15, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We spent a lovely (slightly rainy!) week at Maisonette de Rose and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The property is a good size with a large dining/sitting room and a well-equipped kitchen. There is off-road parking next to the property and a pleasant area to eat outside. Upstairs there are three bedrooms which aren't particularly big but are reasonable with storage in each room. The biggest attraction for us was the outside pool which was absolutely fantastic - it's 1.25 meters deep and was a good temperature even with the slightly dodgy weather we had. We were a bit worried when we first arrived due to very limited space for ball games etc by the gite (football nets are available about 5 mins away near the campsite) but the football stayed in the car with our ten-year old preferring to spend every available second in the pool! The other major draw for us with this property was its proximity to the local town. We stocked up on essentials at the local hypermarket (5 mins drive from the gite) before arriving and then didn't use the car again until a week later when we left! There are lots of lovely restaurants in Azay (we particularly liked Cote Couer and Velo for lovely ice-cream!) and it took us about 30 mins to walk to the train station for day-trips to Tours and Chinon. The Wednesday market in the town is quite small but excellent for fresh fruit/veg, meat, fish and cheese and there are some good wine shops in the town. We were also lucky enough to be there for the monthly night-market which was fab. Over-all, an excellent property and we would certainly consider returning in the future.

“Character house in a character location”
Reviewed June 29, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

The house is in an excellent location as it is a short walk to the town centre, a short drive to hypermarket and not far away from very many beautiful chateaux. Azay le Rideau itself is charming and during the time we were there ( March to end of May) not too busy but with all you would expect to find by way of cafes, restaurants and bars. We would especially recommend the restaurant "Les Grottes" which is a very short walk from the house.The chateau at Azay is delightful and well worth a visit.
The house itself is in character with the surroundings and has been well restored. When we arrived in mid March it was rather cold at first but once we had warmed it up we found it very comfortable. It can sleep 6 so, although it was only the two of us most of the time as we were there for 10 weeks, it was lovely to be able host friends and family who visited during that time. There was also enough parking off road for up to 3 cars.
The house is well equipped with cooker, microwave, washing machine & tumble dryer. There was also the facility to dine outdoors which we used regularly during the good weather. We did find the cooking utensils a little limited for a long stay but it was certainly adequate for a normal holiday stay and it did have a good selection of BBQ stuff for the summer. It was also useful being able to have British TV as well as French and there is also the facility to record programmes. WiFi was excellent (essential for an extended stay.)
Local people were friendly and welcoming and Francisco, who looks after things for the owner, was a delightful and helpful character for whom nothing was too much trouble. We particularly appreciated the fresh eggs from his hens on his huge allotment opposite the house.
The swimming pool was not open during our time there but I'm sure it would be an attraction during the summer months.
We would fully recommend La Maisonette de Rose and Azay le Rideau.

“A great base to explore the Loire from.”
Reviewed June 21, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The Maisonette de Rose had ticked all of our boxes when we were looking for a rental in the heart of the Loire area. Situated on the outskirts of Azay-le-Rideau, it was a short stroll to not only the château, but the small shops, and restaurants and cafés. We were able to take our dog, there was a pool, and areas to eat outside and to park off road. The house was equipped with everything you might reasonably need given that you'll be out and about the vast majority of the time,, and although we were only two, it would certainly be a good family rental.
The owner was extremely helpful before we went, finding out for us about the local availability of fuel during the industrial action, and about the floods in the area. We had a small difficulty whilst there, and again were impressed by the owner's response, and Francisco - the across the road neighbour- was cheerful and informative. A good trip!
