“A middle ground”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

It's been over 18 months since my father and I spent two nights at La Ferme des Saules but, having read the reviews, I feel compelled to add a note of...of...balance to the dialog.

I'd describe La Ferme des Saules as a clean, quiet, comfortable - and well-situated place to stay while in the region. The building and grounds are charming and the meal that we had was well-prepared and the quantity more than adequate.

As all have noted, the proprietor, Didier, is a character - and not a retiring one! A stay at La Ferme des Saules is a stay with Didier. While I can understand how his mannerisms would be off-putting to some, (and perhaps all, at times), we found his stories interesting, his guidance about the region useful and his willingness to engage us refreshing. He was quite kind to my father and enthusiastic about introducing me to his 2CV. For which I am thankful.

You might not want to spend a week at La Ferme des Saules, but the food is very good, the value is great and Didier? Didier will leave you with memories. Ours are quite fond.

There are mixed reviews of Didier and his guesthouse here -

Our family enjoyed our stay with the characterful host, he IS old fashioned and opinionated and speaks his mind but we admired and respected him for that - wish there were more like him and not so many politically correct robots!

He was charming and funny, slightly disorganised and haphazard, he had a world of interesting tales, good local knowledge and shared these with us over a complimentary drink, our kids loved him.

Quality breakfasts were delicious and accompanied with copious refills of fresh coffee

The farm setting is close to the lovely village of Cheverny which is a good walk or easy cycle away and is peaceful, our room was comfortable and clean.

The only minus point was the limitations imposed regarding pool usage which, had we have been staying longer, may have been a problem

We spent a nice weekend few months ago. The owner was very welcoming and knew everything you need to know about the region.

I highly recommend it.
