“A little glimpse of paradise!”
Reviewed June 14, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

It is hard to know where to begin our review as there were so many aspects to our stay that were utterly beguiling.

First, the house itself was spotless and Marion and Colin have obviously cared for it lovingly and their caretakers, Maureen and Stephen maintain this excellent standard. The bed was comfortable and the linen fresh and fragrant. The house is well equipped with a large kitchen and some very thoughtful touches. Games and a variety of books and music were provided.

The garden is marvellous and bloomed with magnificent arum lilies, iris, clematis, along with many varieties of splendid trees and shrubs. Shyly hidden among this glorious display were over 30 specimens of wildflowers. Lizards basked in the sunshine then darted for cover as we passed by.

The Garden Room, where we spent many hours watching the antics of the Green Woodpecker and a family of Coypus as the river rolled peacefully by the bottom of the garden was utterly delightful. The lovely sound of birdsong made a harmonious background to our daily activities until the nightingales took over as we lay in our comfortable bed and drifted off in contented slumber.
There are many interesting and picturesque villages nearby along with chateaux and manoir houses. This was a new area to us, having mostly stayed in the Loire Valley for many years and we were not disappointed. Marion and Colin gave us very helpful local information and we were able to plan a variety of activities before our arrival.
The little town of La Chatre was close by with all the amenities we could want and a bustling lively Saturday market, yet back at the sanctuary of La Maison Rose it could have been miles away
We stayed for three weeks but even so could hardly bear to leave this
little corner of paradise. We are returning next year to continue our adventures and are very thankful to our hosts for making our first visit unforgettable. Would we recommend La Maison Rose? What do you think?????

We have verified with the couple who wrote this review that they meant to fill in the Liked Most section with - The garden and garden room. They filled in the Liked Least section in error, although it's pretty obvious it was an error from the positive review they submitted. Many thanks to them.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed September 26, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Fabulous holiday at the maison rose. Clean and perfect for two people. We were going to travel around but we spent most of the time in the garden and going out to different restaurants in the evening. Found a friendly bar for the first drink before eating. Lovely weather. We will definitely be going back. Can't wait. Thank you both.

“Holiday perfection”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

What a lovely town La Chatre is, and La Maison Rose is the perfect holiday home. The nearest shop (a couple of minutes away) was an excellent boulangerie so we were able to eat warm croissants for breakfast every day. I find it staggering that a town with a population of less than 5,000 can have such a wonderful array of shops, restaurants and services. Because of this, and also the fact that the house was so comfortable, we hardly ventured very far at all. We were just content to kick back and relax with a good book and the odd game of Scrabble in the garden room. The owners are incredibly organised and thoughtful in the way they have set up the house, and because there was no internet access we really could get away from it all.

“A rural idyll on the edge of a charming rural French town”
Reviewed October 30, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

La Maison Rose is a delightful cottage on the edge of a beatiful town in the very heart of France, in the beatiful Berry region. The cottage has its own large and very private garden on the banks af the Indre river. It is impeccably kept; clean, neat and well appointed. It has a uniquely decorated mezzanine bedroom; a capacious claw-foot bath; a huge and well equippped kitchen and a sunny and bright sunrrom with a view of the garden. It is 'out'of' town' in feel and ambience, but an easy walk to the charming old La Chatre centre ville. The region is rich in history, architecture and culture. The locals are deligthful, and the cottage owners could not be more accommodating.
