“A beautiful gite: stylishly furnished and very well equipped”
Reviewed September 19, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

My wife, 19 year-old son and I enjoyed a very relaxing and comfortable week's holiday using this property as our base. Glynis and Mike were excellent hosts, being available and ready to help if needed but leaving us to enjoy the gite without interference.
The property was extremely spacious and beautifully decorated and furnished in a light and contemporary style. Everything was spotlessly clean and all equipment was in good working order. The bathrooms were very well kitted out and the open plan kitchen was very well equipped.
Outside, we had access to a large, private garden with furniture and a barbecue where we could relax in the sunshine.
We visited different places of interest in the area each day, not least some of the beautiful castles, including Rivaud, Chenonceau and Chinon and sampled much of the local food and drink.

“Great Property, Great Hospitality”
Reviewed September 13, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We stayed at Le Grange this August with our young family for a week and had a fantastic time. There is lots of space around the property for kids to run and is set within the fertile farmland of the loire within a 15 minute drive of Richelieu. The Gite itself is immaculate and is well stocked with anything you would care to need. Mike and Glynis are excellent hosts and help in any way they can to cover your needs, which in our case included some emergency road side assistance when we experienced a puncture within 6km of arriving to the gite on the first day. An excellent gite in a really stunning area of France.

This is an excellent review but we feel we must respond to the comment "getting out and about is going to involve an hour or so in any direction". The nearest large supermarket is 15 minutes away, Richelieu and the chateau grounds 10 minutes, Chateau du Rivau 30 minutes, Chinon 35 minutes and the two lakeside beaches 40 minutes. The roads are scenic and very quiet making travelling around very easy.

Our guests say in the 'Liked Least' section that the two bedrooms they used had inadequate ventilation. These are the two bedrooms on the left as you look at the photograph. Both have double doors and the shutters also have louvres to allow for ventilation.Both rooms also have opening Velux roof windows which we feel provide more than adequate ventilation.
