Très apprécié

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué les Orfeuilles à l'occasion d' une fête familiale. Nous avons aimé le confort et l' entretien impeccable des lieux, le calme environnant, et l'accueil sympathique des propriétaires. Nous avons aussi apprécié la livraison du pain , des brioches et des croissants chaque matin par un boulanger de la région. Nous recommandons ce gîte et pensons revenir une prochaine fois passer un we dans la demeure de Bizard.

Super!

  • 4 of 5

L'année passer nous avons louer "Les Orfeuilles"

Cette année "la Demeure de Bizard"

Comme nous sommes toujours a douze personnes, on trouve la 2ieme gite plus confortable.

Il y a 7 chambres et 6 salles de bains, tandis que l'autre maison n'a que 3 salles de bien.

Dans les environs c'est le grand calme, et beaucoup de choses a faire, équitation , tennis, piscine, la peche et surtout beaucoup de châteaux a visiter et un superbe zoo.

Dans les maisons il y a tout se qu'il faut.

En arrivant les lits sont faites et la maison est propre.

sur 15 km il y des grand surfases(on trouve tout) et beaucoups de restaurants, et on y mange bien.

Les proprietaires sont tres tres gentil et sont toujours la pour aider et donner des conseils.

Je crois que nous retournons l'année prochaine.... et peut-être pour plus longtemps....

A wonderful time in Monthou su Cher~

  • 5 of 5

Three American families met in Paris for a few days then headed to Stephanie's lovely property just outside Monthou su Cher for a week. Stephanie had kindly answered many practical questions via email prior to our arrival, so we were excited to finally meet her and see the property. The rental home is situated on a beautiful estate close to a picturesque castle in the Loire region. The home had everything we needed and as was impeccably clean and comfortable upon our arrival. Stephanie greeted us and stopped by several times throughout the week to help us make the best use of our time in the area. She advised us which outdoor markets to go to, which villages were closed on what days, where to find a larger hypermarket, and she even booked wine tastings with English-speaking owners for us! Without her, we would have been bumbling tourists for sure. We had seven children with us ranging in age from 18 months to 14 years. All enjoyed the open spaces, and the oldest six children loved having adventures in the nearby "forest"! We just can't describe how special this location was, and how Stephanie has thought of everything guests need. With so many children, it was also a pleasure to be able to do laundry whenever necessary. Many, many thanks to Stephanie and her husband David!

Confortable, équipé, décoration raffinée.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons profité du Gîte des Orfeuilles lors d'un week-end prolongé en famille et tout s'est parfaitement bien passé, tout le monde a été enchanté par le lieu : décoration, équipement, espace... beaucoup de soin apporté à ce gîte.

Les propriétaires nous ont apporté beaucoup de conseils sur les bonnes adresses environnantes.

Le seul petit bémol éventuellement, est la mauvaise réception réseau, quel que soit l'opérateur télécom, mais c'est lié à la localisation.

Gîte hautement recommandé.

Located in the Loire Valley between Blois and Tours, amidst the most prestigious Loire Chateaux

Surrounded by forests and vineyards, in one of the most beautiful and historical regions of France, David and Stéphanie de Schrynmakers de Dormael, are pleased to welcome you to their 700-hectare estate, deep in the countryside and at the heart of the Loire châteaux. The Belgian couple, who have been living in the Centre region for the past 20 years, can tell you all about the secrets of this enchanting spot. Come and discover the peacefulness and open spaces of the estate, either with the family or friends, and forget the stresses of everyday life. Whether you prefer a traditional farmhouse (12 peoples in the gite des orfeuilles) or a country house (14 peoples in la demeure de Bizard), we can suggest two secluded sites in an exceptional setting, far from the beaten track, where you can enjoy a private swimming pool. A tennis court and lakes for fishing are also available on the estate. Beyond any doubt, these are bucolic, warm and welcoming places you will want to talk about, or keep a secret… to discover the joys of coming back again.
