“Lovely Gite in a lovely part of Loire”
Reviewed August 17, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a lovely stay in this well equipped Gite. Peaceful location but near to local amenities and some lovely French villages, chateau's and markets. Would definitely recommend.

Pool area was lovely with a nice shaded area with table and seating. Property manager and his wife were very accommodating and gave us useful local information.

All had a great time and we're sorry to leave.

“Warm and Cosey”
Reviewed June 6, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

On the wettest June week in France since records began, La Boulaie was warm and cosy. Everything is there that you need, and Darren, the caretaker was extremely helpful, even when we couldn't find his number to say we had arrived!
The kitchen has all the equipment you might need to use, and pans and pots are of a good quality. The shower is hot and powerful, but don't try to run the bath as the power to the taps is just too weak. This was not a problem. We didn't light a fire even though logs were left for us and we used the white bedroom off the living room as it had a heater, which the larger bedroom doesn't. On a normal summer rental week (with sunshine) this would not be a problem.
We didn't use the pool, it nearly overflowed with the amount of rain we had, but it was clean and inviting. We did bring extra fleece blankets for the sofas as they are comfy but getting a bit tired, but we knew the weather would be horrible.
This is our second visit and we are back again in August. A beautiful spot and a lovely gite. We are looking forward to our return.

“Walnuts in September!”
Reviewed October 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

After our earlier one week stay this year, we booked for two weeks this time and were definitely rewarded. There is something so nice about staying that extra week and unwinding. The Gite was great and the pool was fantastic even when the weather was mixed. To cap it all, a walnut tree in the garden that provided us with a tasty treat. Throughly recommended!
