When we booked this gite we thought it looked special. It exceeded our expectations and was the perfect place for a reunion with our friends from Australia. The minute you pass through the gate you relax. The location is truly stunning, right next to the river with views of the conflluence of La Loire and La Vienne. The gite is very tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. It was wonderful to stand in the kitchen preparing a meal and watching the river flow gently by. The owners are most welcoming and the gifts of wine and chocolate gateau with creme anglaise were unexpected but gratefully received! Cande St Martin and Montsoreau are delightful villages and we enjoyed walking or cycling into the latter to buy provisions. The breadshop and butchers are excellent and the market on Sunday morning sold very high quality produce. The fresh mushrooms were delicious! A week was too short, but we will certainly return to a gite that we cannot reommend highly enough.
