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.

Un lieu enchanteur !

  • 5 of 5

Le Domaine des Orfeuilles niché en pleine nature possède bien des atouts. Idéalement situé à deux pas de sites historiques emblématiques comme Chenonceaux, Chambord, Cheverny...c'est aussi un hâvre de paix plein de charme pour des retrouvailles en famille ou entre amis dans un hébergement de qualité, spacieux et confortable. Promenades en forêt, piscine aux beaux jours, tennis, équitation...tout est fait ici pour que petits et grands vivent des moments inoubliables ! Cerise sur le gâteau, l'accueil y est à la fois chaleureux et professionnel ! Nous quittons le lieu à regret et formons le voeu de vite y revenir...pour la cinquième fois !

Les Orfeuilles : magique en toutes saisons !

  • 5 of 5

Quand on découvre "les Orfeuilles " on n'a qu'une envie, c'est d'y revenir très vite ! C'est ce que nous avons fait, goûtant cette fois aux plaisirs de l'automne débutant, dans ce cadre exceptionnel où la nature est reine, l'hébergement à la fois raffiné et fonctionnel, l'accueil très chaleureux et les activités riches et variées !

Une adresse rare à recommander sans réserve !

Une perle dans un écrin de verdure

  • 5 of 5

Le domaine des orfeuilles est vraiment un lieu exceptionnel, bucolique, hors du temps et offrant par ailleurs une grande diversité d'activités. Sa proximité avec les hauts lieux du patrimoine historique français en constitue l'un des nombreux atouts.

Entre deux visites de châteaux et une dégustation en cave, après la découverte des jolis petits villages alentour et celle des pandas et tigres blancs du zoo de Beauval, qu'il fait bon rejoindre le gîte de Stéphanie et de David, spacieux, confortable, niché au coeur d'une clairière où seul le coucou se fait entendre !

Merci à eux pour leur gentillesse et leur disponibilité !

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.
