Four of us (two couples) loved staying in this house for four nights. Host/owner Pascale was gracious and kind. House was lovely- beautifully decorated and clean, beds very comfortable. Special touch of a welcoming chilled bottle of excellent local sparkling wine! Surroundings like a postcard- peaceful, quiet and so picturesque!! Would have loved to spent more time in this house. Location was perfect for sightseeing - so much to see and do nearby. Pascale’s local knowledge was helpful planning our excursions. Pascale perfect host for an outstanding vacation home.
The location is quiet rural and very peaceful with great views of the countryside. Supermarket and shops within a 10minute drive. City of Amboise and Tours are only a short drive on very good French road network. The cottage is within the grounds of the Chateau and has its own private access, and all the rooms are extremely tasteful and well presented. Very clean with everything you need.There are extensive woodland to have a quiet wander. Lastly what made this holiday was our hosts Pascale and his lovely wife who were so very kind and thoughtful. Even arranging a visit to a local winery. We will return, as there was so much to see and places to visit. 10 out of 10.
We were absolutely delighted with our stay in La Vernelle House. The owners have clearly put a lot of care, creativity and skilled hard work into making this a wonderful house for their guests. They have given it a perfect, cultured blend of French tradition and a fresh contemporary feel. We stayed for a month and we were extremely comfortable, and delighted with the amount of space (it was far, far bigger than expected). It is in a very private setting with its own security gate and large, peaceful terrace. We very much appreciated the high standard/comfort of the beds/bedding, bathroom and indeed the entire house. The surroundings are truly charming. Whether we were indoors or outside, we could really relax and appreciate the peace and the views of lush trees all around, full of chirping birds. And the horses and donkey munching contentedly all day added to our sense of relaxation. We were so happy with our choice of location in terms of easy access to many places to visit and glorious, poppy-filled countryside for walking/cycling. To cap it all, and what made our holiday extra special and our best ever, was that our hosts were a joy to meet – super-friendly, extremely professional/discreet and caring about how happy and comfortable we were. We do miss them! We could happily have stayed on long-term and can’t wait to return one day.
We also got to look inside La Closerie - the smaller rental house next door, which was just being finished and was equally charming and tempting ...
Many thanks Pascale and Pascale for the Cremant, eggs and for absolutely everything!
