“Pretty location”
Reviewed June 4, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

House is located in a lovely country side. It's quite and peaceful. It is in a good location to explore the area. The supermarket is only 5 minutes away so as the local bakery.

The property itself is spacious inside and It stays cool even when it's hot outside.

The owners are very freindly and try to help when ever they can.

The only thing that we felt would be beneficial if the owners instal some net curtains on the windows, like they have on their windows, so that the windows can be left opened without bees and flys getting in.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would love to come back in the future to continue to explore the area.

“Perfect for a week away”
Reviewed March 14, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

My Girlfriend and I stayed at La Cour De Pierre for 5 days and had a mini romantic holiday together. Jill, the owner is wonderful and was available to answer any queries we had. The Cottage itself is clean, well equipped (includes a coffee machine!) and situated in the lovely French Countryside, only 25 minutes outside Saumur.
I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone.

“Peaceful, country cottage.”
Reviewed October 24, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This is a lovely gite in the heart of apple orchard country. Quiet and comfortable. Just the perfect place to unwind.
You are an easy drive to many scenic towns. Or walk the country roads....pheasants scattering in front of you.
The hosts are very friendly and were very helpful with our Paypal payment glitch!

“Fantastic gite in great location”

person found this review helpful

We've just spent 11 great nights at La Cour de Pierres. The gite is lovely, with everything you could need and a beautiful en-suite bathroom. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, with a private garden area which was great for our 9 month old daughter to crawl around and a lovely spot to watch the sun go down with a glass of wine. The gite is conveniently positioned, so many great places within a 20-30 minute drive. And Gill the owner could not have been more helpful.

“Great gem; Warm welcome; Relaxed and restful”
Reviewed September 6, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a fantastic short break at the Gite. Our hosts were very welcoming, indeed the welcome basket with a bottle of wine hit the spot after the long drive from the tunnel. Gite has everything you need for a french country holiday. You do need a car and within 45 mins drive you have a huge range of sites and activities. I am already looking forward to going back.

“All we wanted and more”
Reviewed September 18, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Discovered this wee gem on trip advisor whilst searching for places to stay in France. It appeared to meet our needs perfectly.
When we arrived, the property was charming, dwelling in the rural French countryside.
Inside the Gite, was everything that we needed during our stay in France. The owners Gill and Tony were amazing, Gill was extremely friendly, and only to glad to help no mater whatever came to light.
She's a fountain of knowledge when it comes to some of the best places to eat, and we have followed her recommendations extensively( and reviewed them on TripAdvisor).Not to mention her knowledge of the local wines.
The gite is charming, with a large living area come kitchen on the ground floor, with 2 bedrooms on the upper floor, with fantastic views over the French countryside.
The large bathroom, has a great shower with it's own hot water supply so we never ran out of piping hot water.
If you are an animal lover, then this place will suit you to a"T" ! As well as Gill welcoming us on arrival, you're greeted by Ruby and Boots their charming two dogs.
A full explanation of the remainder of the menagerie is explained in the welcome pack, which is a good source of information.
All in all a most enjoyable holiday, an will definitely return.
