About Kate Eardley

We chose to move to France in 2008 with our three children, three horses and two dogs. David is a long haul pilot with a very well known British airline. This enabled us to live in France and enjoy a more relaxed lifestyle. We fell in love with the house the moment we saw it. We love living here and hope you will enjoy your holiday in this beautiful part of France. There is so much to see here, we have been living here for six years and have only seen a small part of it.

Kate Eardley purchased this cottage in 2008

What makes this cottage unique

The beautiful warm stone, that is typical of the area and reminds us of the medieval châteaux that adorn the Loire. The rural location of the property means we are able to walk our dogs and never see a soul and it is not unusual to see deer grazing in the forest. The local area is simply beautiful and relaxing.

Happy Return

  • 5 out of 5
We first saw this property soon after the present owners had bought it and were keen to stay when it was complete. We were not disappointed! The room were spacious and clean, furnished to a high standard with many personal touches. The home cooked meal on arrival was excellent. It is well located for 'tourists' and the owners local knowledge meant these were easy to plan. I recommend this venue and hope to return next year.

Beautifully renovated coach house

  • 5 out of 5
The accommodation was excellent, immaculately clean. It had an extremely comfortable king sized bed, plus a high spec kitchen area ( all new). we were provided with a very useful welcome pack and there were also little extras in the bath room for our use. We had our own entrance however Kate and David ( who were very friendly ) were available to give advice on restaurants places to visit. . There were many places to visit including Tours, Chinon, Saumur, Amboise plus the many local chateau's. A car is essential due to the secluded location.. There are plenty of local walks. This is one of the best holiday accommodations that we have used..
We just wished we had stayed longer

our best holiday memories, in a peaceful location

  • 5 out of 5
Le Petit Chaume was a beautiful gite. Not Petit at all, in fact Grand in so many ways. We loved the spaciousness of the living room and bedroom. The gite was spotlessly clean and and the bed with its crisp sheets, was the most comfortable we have ever slept in. The bathroom was very clean and modern. the kitchen was very well equiped. Kate was so kind to us, cooking a delicious, welcoming dinner for us at very low cost. As we arrived on Sunday night there were no restaurants open so the home cooking was really appreciated. Kate gave us lots of helpful advise about the local area, directing us to some really interesting places that we may have otherwise missed eg Balzac's house and the town of Richelieu, as well as the fabulous Chateaux that were within an hours drive. She also made the best suggestions for local restaurants and made the booking for us. our French is limited so being able to get advice in English was appreciated. Kate went to a lot of trouble to print directions for us too when our GPS wasn't being co-operative. The gite is in a very peaceful location, so a sound night's sleep is guaranteed. the outside dining area was perfect for a quiet meal "at home", after a full day out, with a wine and the horses nearby. The nearest town Crissay Sur Manse is just so pretty, only a short walk away. It's very quiet with some fabulous photo opportunities- stunning houses and gardens in the winding streets, the perfect little French village with an informal cafe/bar/restaurant with delicious salad plates and desserts, and very friendly service. We ate both lunch and dinner here and enjoyed the lovely relaxed location. There was a SuperU only a few miles away so we could easily stock up on supplies for the week, this was important to us. Kate was also able to recommend the best local butcher and baker. The only thing that we missed, and this was certainly beyond the control of our Host, was not having a really close local market to visit each day, although we found a large Market on Thursday at Chinon about half an hour away. Otherwise this really was the perfect holiday destination. We were able to visit 3 major Chateaux during the week we spent here as well as discovering so many new, unexpected towns and places. Many thanks to Kate and David for making our visit so comfortable and enjoyable. we hope we can return again one day in the near future.

Outstanding.....

  • 5 out of 5
What a beautiful, idyllic location, we were really pleasantly surprised with the spacious accommodation and cleanliness combined with little extra homely touches, upon arrival we opened up the fridge to find a bottle of the local tipple "Vouvray" chilling in the fridge complete with two champagne glasses with ribbons neatly tied around the stem of the glass.... fantastic, just what you need after a long day...the bed was so comfortable with freshly laundered, crisp bed linen.... We opted to have an evening meal cooked for us by our host on our first evening, again this was of an extremely high standard, a three course dinner, which was absolutely delicious..... we couldn't recommend this accommodation highly enough, the hosts were full of information and recommendations of places of interest and restaurants to visit, which we may otherwise not have found..... all in all it was fantastic and we would no hesitate to return...

Beautiful location, quiet, comfortable and clean!

  • 5 out of 5
We were both very pleased when we arrived at this property, it was very spacious and clean. The kitchen had everything we needed, even washing up liquid and kitchen towel! There was even a bottle of sparkling wine left in the fridge along with two champagne glasses, a lovely welcome. The bed was very comfortable and the linen was crisp and fresh, we felt like we were in a four star hotel. The towels were very soft and there was tray of toiletries in the bathroom. Kate was very helpful with advice on the area and booked a couple of restaurants for us that we would never have found, one was a lovely restaurant with a jazz band. We will return for sure next year.

Spreading from East to West, within 60 miles you can travel around the Loire Valley and take time to explore the world-famous châteaux of Chambord, Chenonceau and Chinon. The area is rich in history. At Amboise you will find a museum to the memory of Leonardo da Vinci who came to France at the invitation of Francis 1 in 1516 and died here on 2nd May 1519.

The Loire Valley is the third largest French wine region. The wine tradition is reported as early as the sixth century. The fortress city of Chinon is a must see for the first-time visitor. It was from here that Henry II Plantagenet ruled over a large portion of France and all of England in the 12th Century. Also close by and another must see is the Royale Abbey of Fontevraud, where Henry II, his wife Eleanor of Aquitaine and their son Richard the Lion Heart were interred.

Some of the best wines in France come from the various AOC surrounding us, Chinon, Saumur-Champigny, Bourgueil and St. Nicolas Bourgueil to name a few. Within a 40 minute drive is the beautiful city of Tours, and the wine regions of Vouvray and Sancerre.

Saumur, 'the pearl of Anjou,' is just a hours drive to the west, and it serves as the equestrian capital of France and is home to the world famous Cadre Noir.

At the heart of the vineyards of Chinon, you can discover with pleasure the nearby cellars and the warm and generous welcome of the winemakers of the country.

There is an abundance of restaurants in the area offering delicious traditional French cuisine, we would be more than happy to recommend our favourites.

We are located outside the village, on a country lane and have very little passing traffic. With the king-size sleigh bed and luxury bedlinen you can be assured of a peaceful nights sleep. The terrace is a perfect place to enjoy the sunset while sipping locally made wine and savouring the flavours of delicious French cheese.
