“Wonderful Place”
Reviewed August 5, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Volets Rouge is a wonderful place to stay. Really off the beaten track, very peaceful and relaxing. Mark and Judy are wonderful hosts - nothing is too much trouble. We appreciated being able to use their bikes for a cycle ride in the surrounding countryside which is beautiful. We also enjoyed relaxing by the pool.

“Excellant placce for confortable break in a beautifl environment”
Reviewed July 31, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We went along wih son, daughter-in-law and two young grandsons. The accomodation was fantastic and very comfortable. The pool was excellant and we had close on sole use of it, much to the boys' delight. Mark and Judy are ideal hosts; ensuring we had everything we needed without being over intrusive. Mark's wine tasting was well chsen and displayed great local knowledge. A fantastic holiday which we look to repeat.

We are grateful to hear how much you enjoyed your stay here. We decided some ten years ago when we installed the pool to put in the largest one that would fit in the courtyard. Children of all ages as well as their parents and grandparents have all enjoyed it greatly. It helps that it is heated. Jumping in is not the great shock to the system that it can be in unheated pools!! We are fortunate in that we have managed to pack in multiple wine-tastings in snatched moments over the past years and have now a solid cadre of friendly wine producers who produce truly exceptional wines. We will have to introduce you to some different wines when you next visit - an occasion that we look forward to very much indeed.

“Absolutely fabulous place to stay”
Reviewed June 6, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Had a brilliant break here, everything was well maintained and the property was stunning with everything you needed provided. Judy and Mark could not have been more helpful but not intrusive in anyway. The pool was stunning and if you wanted to eat outside a bbq was provided. The local shop was only 1.5 miles away and had a great selection of produce.

The only down side for some people maybe the fact that restaurants are not close at hand so it is necessary to drive out in the evenings

I would highly recommend staying here

Jude and I are both so pleased that you enjoyed your stay here. It was a great pleasure to meet you all. It is especially reassuring to know that you felt you had everything you required and that our local store, Carrefour Market, provided a good selection of foodstuffs. We cannot choose our stores and this small supermarket recently improved beyond all possible expectations. It even opens on Sunday morning when the rest of France sleeps! Twelve years ago there was a small family restaurant in Allonnes that is sadly no more. Fortunately, there are many fabulous places to eat nearby in Saumur - a short bike ride away for those who enjoy cycling.

“Lovely gite and hosts”
Reviewed April 12, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We have just had a super holiday at this gite (Easter 2015) and Mark and Judy couldn't have been more helpful. There were 6 of us (3 couples) with one of the group in a wheelchair and the cottage is well laid out. The owners organised a trip to a local vineyard for us and made countless phone calls enquiring about disabled facilities at restaurants / attractions which made life so much easier for us; they even organised our final vet trip for our dog - if anyone else uses this local vet, they only charged 25 euros!

I would definitely recommend this gite - ideal for families who want a restful holiday.

We came upon the Volets Rouge by chance, whilst doing a motoring tour of the Loire.It turned out to be a very good find. Friendly and helpful owners, Mark, Judy and family, have created a delightful and peaceful haven. It has very good, facilities, that include a pool, plus all that we needed to make for a relaxing vacation.
We booked for 3 nights and enjoyed it so much that we stayed for 6,. Allowing us to take advantage of glorious weather, and the many attractions nearby.
Highly recommended, and easy to understand why so many guests become repeat visitors...

We are so glad you both enjoyed your holiday here so much. We are really fortunate to be located in such a tranquil and yet central location. While the countryside around us here is fairly flat it manages nonetheless to be very beautiful with lots of trees and clusters of ancient tuffeau-stone buildings. We much enjoyed meeting you and hope to see you again.

“Great Place to stay”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

people found this review helpful

We were a small group of friends on a weeks break - on motorcycles; after a long day riding to Les Volets Rouges from Roscoff (via a friend house) we arrived to a very warm welcome from Mark & Judy, we were shown where we were staying and the garage Mark had cleared out for our bikes to be parked in - which was great as the weather was a bit damp.
The gite was fantastic my wife and I had the ground floor bedroom which was big with a double bed and had a large wet room just off it, the two Twin bedroom upstairs were a good size with on-suite's. We had a large fully fitted kitchen and sitting room with a TV with British channels available. The whole week was very comfortable, there was lots of information of what to see and where to go in the area, Mark and Judy sorted of a wine tasting and even helped with our shopping and ordering some food to be delivered the following night. Emma their daughter even helped one of our group at the doctors when he was taken ill.
All in this is a fantastic place to stay the Gite(s) are very comfortable as a base to do day visits (You can get to all of the Loire Valley attractions from here) or just to stay and relax in or outside in the garden area (there is a very large play area for children).

“The warmest of welcomes and hospitality that goes above and beyond”
Reviewed November 21, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This was my third stay at Les Volets Rouges and each time I have experienced the incredibly warm generosity provided by Mark and Judy. One stay was in La Forge with my partner, the second with my mum, sister and daughter and this final time with my fellow motorcycling friends who stayed in La Grange. You might think that a chilly October half term on bikes is doomed from the start but nothing was further from the truth. After a brisk blast from Roscoff we arrived to a fabulously clean and well appointed gite and complimentary wine, bread and milk. After 300 miles riding, no one felt inclined to venture to the supermarket for supplies so Judy offered to drive us there and bring the necessary bottles of water, wine and beer back in the car. What a diamond. This thoughtfulness continued all week when the following day, all 7 of us joined the family for drinks and later in the week prevailed upon their daughter Emma to act as interpreter when one of our party needed a doctor's appointment and was later blue-lighted to Saumur hospital. I cannot praise this holiday destination highly enough and look forward to my next visit very soon.
