Lovely Stay; Great Location and Hostess

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I truly enjoyed our stay in Berthenay and Une Maison, Un Jardin. Marie was a wonderful hostess. She welcomed us warmly and gave us excellent advice on where to go, what to see and where to eat. Our baggage did not arrive until five days after we did and Marie was very thoughtful about lending us clothing and giving shopping advice. The gite is very nice, quite large and was outfitted well. The area is beautiful and we enjoyed bicycle rides almost every day. There are plenty of interesting things to do within comfortable driving distance - castles, quaint towns, vineyards, natural beauty and nice cafes/restaurants. We were fortunate with the weather - it did not rain once in nearly two weeks - so we would recommend going in September if you can.

Berthenay's Best

  • 5 of 5

This house is a delightful place with an arty atmosphere throughout all of its spacious rooms. Marie is a very helpful and knowledgeable hostess. She made our stay special with fresh flowers in the home and good Rose wine on our arrival, fruit from her garden during our stay and fresh bread from the local bakery for breakfast on the day of our departure.The location is quiet but central and close to a lot of attractions and good restaurants. I highly recommend this home to anyone visiting the Loire Valley.

Most pleasant stay in castle and wine country

  • 5 of 5

This cosy and quiet house is at the focal point of most places of interest and things to do in the Loire region. Marie is a pleasant and knowledgeable host, and an art and vintage clothes collector - she was a stylist in a past life and speaks about fine arts with passion. The way she designed the house interior is just smashing, taking advantage of every corner to make it as beautiful as comfortable. We had a splendid time and will be back with pleasure - and bring new people along. We loved eating great food and tasting wines at Marie's friends' - a recommendation from her is the best passport.

casa y exterior (no muy bien mantenido) muy bien

  • 4 of 5

La douceur de la loire

la propietaria (bohemia y activa) imprime caracter en esta casa con sus maniquíes de costura, decoración atractiva y con un mantenimiento del jardín un poco (o bastante) mejorable!

La casa está muy bien equipada,cómoda y muy agradable de estar y disfrutarla. El espacio exterior es mejorable: de mantenimiento, de luces para estar por la noche en el exterior, etc

Debe que mejorar su señalización para encontrarla la primera vez

Su ubicación es excelente.

Fuimos 8 hermanos y nos lo pasamos muy requetebien!

Awesome house in a wonderful area

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at Marie's place in November 2011 with my mother, my sister and two of my nieces. We have all loved the house and the special attention Marie has given us.

I have to say I have been impressed by the artsy atmosphere: great art books and wonderful paintings. And the collection of vintage clothes. We have even bought a painting (by Marie) and a few decoration items.

I can only recommend this property.
