I spent a week here in October with my friend and my dog. The house is large, lovely and very comfortable. My dog loved the large grounds to run in which are very secure and private. It is a great area, nearby, Richelieu is lovely and ofcourse Chinon is quite close. Jean-Jacque was very friendly and helpful. We look forward to visiting again in the future. Maggie, England.
If you want something special and unusual yet with all the comforts of the less unique destinations, then this is the place for you. So quiet, peaceful and beautiful. After a hectic year this was just what the doctor ordered. The abbey is simply beautiful. The restoration been done is just amazing. The sunset from the top of the tower is indescribable. Or just watch the deer come out of the nearby forest at dusk. Almost doesn't sound real yet this is what we experienced.
The gite is quite modern inside with everything you could want yet retaining the charm of an old cottage.
Kichen is very well equipped with everything you could need. Bathroom is lovely, bed very comfortable. Swimming pool right on the doorstep. My favourite part though is your own private garden with apple and pear trees that Marc (the owner) encourages you to make the most of.
Marc and Christine are lovely hosts. Marc spent over an hour with a map telling us about all the best local restaurants and things to see. On the first morning he brought us in his restored Belgian army jeep to the local bakery and gave us a tour on the way back of the area. We also enjoyed a very detailed tour with all the history of the abbey and Yul Brynner connection. We also enjoyed some aperitifs on our last night.
I know we shall return and would highly recommend this to anybody looking for a unique and peaceful holiday experience.
