“Beautiful gite on the banks of the Loire”
Reviewed July 30, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

A beautifully presented property with stunning views across the Loire; lovingly restored to its current high standard. The Annex en-suite bedroom suited us well, giving us each our own space as well as sharing the main rooms of the gite together. The kitchen had everything we needed to self cater; the outdoor space was enough to enable us to eat outside in the evening as well as enjoying the sunshine there over lunch. The spa opportunity was a wonderful bonus. A great location to explore the space between Tours and Saumur; on the cycle route and with easy access to many different chateaux. Over the river from Langeais with it's medieval chateau and near to a decent sized supermarket, it was a bit far to walk into town in the evening but easily done by bicycle.
A relaxing place to base yourselves to explore the central Loire valley and all it has to offer. Close to the wine route; excellent public transport links which are very easy to use; lots of free parking everywhere.
The welcome we received upon arrival was warm and heartfelt. The property was obviously cared for. Regular opportunities to talk to the owners were available and they could not do enough to recommend places to visit; times to go places and share their own local experience of restaurants and tourist attractions. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return. I will certainly recommend this property to others. Thank you for a lovely Loire experience.

Reviewed April 25, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Selma was a very welcoming and obliging host. The gite was a great place to spend some time and a perfect base for some chateau hopping. We had a fabulous stay and would recommend this place to anyone. Clean, comfortable, well appointed.

“Lovely, quiet Gite close to Loire attractions”
Reviewed June 26, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Perfectly located for day trips to visit the beautiful chateaux of the Loire Valley, this Gite is clean and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. Steep spiral staircase makes it inappropriate for anyone with mobility problems. Gracious, helpful host provides plenty of information for tourists new to the area.

We booked this little cottage for me, my wife and 9 week old baby to go and relax for a week and do as we pleased. We were not disappointed at all. The cottage was beautiful with loads of history and charm, tastefully decorated too. The views onto the river Loire are stunning, especially from the top bedroom. Selma and her family did everything they could to make us welcome and help us with anything we needed.

We visited local towns like Langeais, Saumur, Tours and Angers. They all had so much to offer and we enjoyed seeing the wonderful chateau in each of these places. We spent most of our time just going for walks down the river and in the local area.

The Spa in Selma's house is a very nice touch. I can highly recommend this for unwinding. We also had a look at the Tree houses which La Bateliere sur Loire offers too. These looked incredible and something we would like to try in the future.

We received a very warm welcome from Selma when we arrived at the gite. There was everything you needed for a comfortable stay with lots of information about the surrounding area.
There are beautiful views of the river from both the sitting room and the upstairs bedroom..
We enjoyed our stay immensely and would recommend it to both family and friends.
