Luxe calme et volupte

  • 5 out of 5
We had a fabulous stay at le pot vert, in the midst of a wonderful peaceful green haven at the doors of the fabulous UNESCO heritage vallee de la Loire. Coming from Australia, we were amazed by the generosity of our wonderful hosts Frederique and Remi. The pantry was full of delicious fare, there was also delicious bread and danishes from the best Baker in France. Nothing was too much for our hosts to make our stay a most memorable experience. Bess, the dog and Valentine the cat also befriended us. We miss le Pot Vert, its elegant charm and we cannot wait to be back. We recommend this wonderful place for an unforgettable holiday.

We hated to leave this wonderful place. When we returned from a days sight-seeing, we felt as though we returned home. It's hard to know what to mention first as all the amenities were beyond our expectations. It is a very unique and special place. We were able to pick our own strawberries and raspberry's that Dr. Remi grew in his special "hidden" garden. We gorged on pastries that were available nearby and followed many of Frederique's suggestions of where and how to go places and where to eat. The place is ideally located near an inexpensive tram that takes you into the lovely city of Orleans, about 20 minutes away. Also, from that city you could take a train into Paris in an hour. Soooo, it was the best of both worlds, City and country. There's nothing we can say that others haven't said before. It is a charming place to stay, especially for 2 couples or a couple with a few children. The owners two pets were sweet, dog, Bess and the adorable friendly cat who loved to sit on our laps (when invited)! We truly couldn't have asked for more and have already recommended the place to quite a few of our friends with the confidence that they will agree with our review of Pot Vert. The owners treated us like visiting well-loved relatives. They were there for our every need yet kept to themselves and respected our privacy. In all...we couldn't have asked for more.

Lovely house in beautiful Loire Valley.

  • 5 out of 5
Dido to all the other 5 star reviews here. Frederique is a great Host. As she said, she was there when we needed her and not there when we did not need her.
The house is as beautiful as it looks in the pictures. It was very clean and comfortable. My ten-year-old daughter enjoyed the pool and the huge yard where she could practice her soccer skills. The kitchen was well stocked with all kinds of goodies, which showed the generosity of our hosts.
As for the location, it was perfect for our stay in Loire Valley. Close to many Chateauxs and to Paris as well. The bicycle ride from Blois to Chambord, despite my daughter's crash and getting lost on the way back was one our most memorable activities in the Loire Valley. I am an artisan baker. Frederique went out of her way to arrange a meeting with the famous local artisan baker Christophe Maureille. I found Mr. Maureille and his wife to be very sweet and down to earth people. Daily trips to Maison Maureille are a must! Also try La Parenthèse or Les Toques in Orleans for an excellent dinner.
I highly recommend ' Le Pot Vert ' for your Loire Valley vacation.

Franse gastvrijheid in de Loire

  • 5 out of 5
Heerlijke week gehad in eeuwenoude cottage met prachtige tuin. Al vanaf de aankomst voelden we ons meer dan thuis. Gastvrouw Frédérique en haar man Rémy hebben veel reiservaring. Dat komt de gasten ten goede, want zij vinden dat gasten vanaf de aankomst onmiddellijk van hun vakantie moeten kunnen gaan genieten. En dat merk je. De koelkast is helemaal gevuld en zelfs aan wijnen, kruiden uit de tuin, sterkte drank en een geprepareerde openhaard ontbreekt het niet. Geweldig! Op 1 mei was er weinig te doen in Frankrijk en nodigen Frédérique en Rémy ons bij hen thuis uit voor koffie. Ze zijn oprecht geinteresseerd in hun gasten. De tuin is prachtig en groot en deze wordt gedeeld met de eigenaren wiens prachtige huis ook aan de tuin grenst. Desalniettemin heb je veel privacy. Het plaatsje Saint Jacques de Braye is niet heel mooi, maar de wijk van de cottage wel degelijk. Alle voorzieningen zijn er wel zoals Carrefour en bakker. In de buurt ligt het prachtige Orleans (5 km) en Blois. En uiteraard vele prachtige kastelen die de Loire zo bijzonder maken. Een aanrader!

It was everything we had dreamed of and more

  • 5 out of 5
First off, Frederique was a first-rate hostess who went out of her way for us. Due to a problem at home, we didn't have a gps with us and the car rental place didn't have one, so I called Frederique and she came and led us to the cottage right away and then lent us a spare gps she had on hand to use for the duration of our stay, which was a Godsend.

My first impression of Le Pot Vert was that it was even more charming and beautiful in person than the photos on the website. It was immaculate and homey all at once. I especially loved the "chandelier" and clock in the kitchen made out of old pieces of cutlery. Very original. There were touches like that throughout the cottage: very unique and eye-catching small details in every room.

It was only my husband and myself, so the space felt luxuriously large. We were on a delayed honeymoon that encompassed our first anniversary, though we are in our 50's/60's. The bed in the master bedroom was extremely comfortable and the room itself was very lovely.

Frederique had stocked the kitchen and larder with a refrigerator full of wine, cheese and fresh strawberries, as well as fresh bread and croissants and many other delicious items in the pantry, which we dined on the first night and enjoyed throughout our stay. Again, her thoughtfulness was evident everywhere.

Although it was too cool to use the pool area, I was surprised and pleased to see that it was right outside the side door of the cottage, which you can't tell from the photos on the website.

Frederiques's husband, Remi's gardens were also something to behold. His dedication to creating a haven of beauty and peace has manifested in a garden that is perfectly manicured and at the same time, very creatively designed. I especially loved his topiary. There is also a long walkway into the woods that isn't evident on the website that is magical in its appeal. My only disappointment was that I didn't get to see the roses in bloom, of which there were many in bud.

Last of all, I must mention Valentin, their cat. She was a wonderful, loving presence all week which was an added bonus, because I was missing our pets at home.

Altogether, although we still have many other places we want to see in the world, we will be absolutely return to Le Pot Vert one day to celebrate another milestone anniversary. Thank you, Frederique, for a stay filled with magical memories we'll treasure forever.

The name of Orleans is inseparably linked with that of Joan of Arc and there is evidence of her everywhere: in satues, her life history depicted in the cathedral's stained glass windows, the house where she stayed in 1429. The city, on the beautiful and wild River Loire, is also the centre of its own wine producing area and the town has more than enough to keep a visitor happy, in particular the old part, which has many fine buildings. Some of the greatest chateaux of the Loire are within reasonable driving distance and the cottage is ideally placed for a day in Paris or Versailles. Fontainebleau on the outskirts of Paris is only 85 kms. Chartres magnificent cathedral is 70 kms.

Other Activities: Many historic places to visit : the great Loire chateaux, etc

Golf: 8 golf courses in the area.
