Gite de La Confluence
Reviewed July 17, 2013

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.

Perfect location - the garden wall is the bank of the Loire on a most beautiful spot on the river, where the Vienne joins the Loire and the river bends so whilst preparing food you look back up a 3 mile stretch of river
Perfectly fitted out as a holiday home at any time of the year
Perfect for a family holiday
Perfect for sightseeing - the closest Chateau is between you and the bakers - which is all of 5 minutes walk along the bank of the Loire. Situated on the border of two villages and both Candes St Martin and Montsoreau are listed as two of the most beautiful villages in France
Perfect for cycling in the beautiful Loire area - and walking, and picnics - if you ever want to leave the garden and its views
Perfect for wine lovers - Chinon, Saumur, Bourgueil and St Nicolas de Bourgueil appellations are all local and chances for trying and buying more wine than most livers can stand - and that's just in Montosoreau

Oh and did I mention the owners who are perfect hosts - arriving with wine and chocolate desserts.

You have no reason to go anywhere else ever again. It is a lovely gite, a truly stunning location and the only place we have been back to and we will return again.

We stayed at La Confluence in June 2011 and was a most enjoyable visit. The small beautiful village of Candes St Martin is a delight. We have stayed in a number of cottages in rural France over many years and this is by far the best. It is superbly presented and fitted out, spotless and with lovely peaceful views where the two rivers, Loire and Vien, meet. The gite is free standing within the owner's property. James is a wonderful and discreet host and he and his wife are extremely welcoming.

We hope to visit the Loire again some time in the not too distant future and we would not consider staying anywhere else but La Confluence.

Our family of five from Australia are enjoying the most magic week in this gite. It's easily the most lovely place we have stayed in France. The quality of the accommodation is definitely four star and the views directly to the river are just breathtaking. Our hosts are very welcoming and we would highly recommend this gorgeous cottage.
