We have just spent three days at La Maison, and I am so sad to be leaving. Loches is magnificent, a treasure trove of history, culture and culinary joys, and our rooms (the Suite Jacques Coeur) complement it perfectly.
Christine and Philippe are charming and generous hosts, friendly and warm. Their attention to detail is exemplary…. A range of teas in our room, towelling robes, beautiful sheets on an enormous bed, magnificent décor, a large and comfortable bathroom; nothing was forgotten. Even in winter, the formal garden outside our window is beautiful.
The breakfasts are a delight. Freshly-brewed coffee, croissants and breads, home-made preserves, cheeses from various regions of Frances, fruit salad, juices, eggs, ham. A perfect way to stoke up energy for a day of sight-seeing.
The location is ideal. It is a few minutes’ walk from a number of excellent local restaurants (L’Entracte is particularly recommended!) and nestled in the walls of the medieval city. The castle, the keep and the cathedral are moments away. From each window there is a breathtaking sight.
My only regret is that it hasn’t snowed while we were here. But that might have been just too overwhelmingly gorgeous, and I’d never be able to leave.
I heartily recommend this superb gîte. And I thank Philippe and Christine for their fabulous hospitality. À bientôt!
