Fantastic location, within 30 minute or an hour’s drive of all the major Loire chateaux. Lots of vineyards just down the road, we didn’t visit any as our children would disapprove. We were a group of 6 adults and 2 small children.
We turned up a bit late due to heavy traffic but the owners were more than welcoming. Throughout our stay they were very friendly and helpful, and at the same time discreet. The bottle of local white wine placed in the fridge, really helped to start the holiday.
The property sits in the grounds of the neighbouring Chateaux’s former stables, it is beautifully decorated, exceptionally clean with comfortable furniture, spacious bedrooms, and an excellent kitchen (larger than it appears in the photos). The living/dining room is huge with plenty of room to eat, sit comfortably and for the children to play. The garden was used on many evenings, very quiet with lots of chairs and tables plus a bbq.
For our children the owners supplied a travel cot, a changing mat, a high chair and a baby bath.
The accommodation is a short drive from the local Super U (supermarket and fuel). Also two bakers are located in a nearby town, with good opening hours.
We had a great time here, it was perfect to travel to numerous interesting places but also to relax. We may well return in the future. The photos do not do it justice.
We spent a very enjoyable and relaxing 2 nights at this beautifully renovated property in Villedieu-le-Chateau. Surrounded by fields, the house was wonderfully quiet, with no traffic noise and fantastically dark night skies. The children loved the freedom and space, especially stroking and feeding ends of baguette to the donkey and horse in the field opposite the house, (visible from their bedroom window). Wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy more walks, cycles and blackberry picking, (cueillette de mûre)! Jean and Francoise were very welcoming hosts, thank you very much for the delicious confiture de prunes! Hope to return some time.
