We enjoyed our stay in the Loire Valley. Amelie was very friendly and welcoming. The property was situated in a great area, away from it all in the wonderful French countryside. The gite itself was compact and not as large as the website photos lead us to believe. It is a one storey apartment, with a well equipped kitchen and comfortable lounge area. The bedroom had a queen and 2 single beds but would have been quite claustrophobic for 4 people in our opinion. The private garden was good although in need of some TLC gardeningwise. The shared pool was excellent although we had to ask for a key to the gate to use it. The River Loire and village of Brehemont is just 2.5 km away, a comfortable 20 minute walk through the fields. There was a Boulangerie (excellent bread and cakes) and a hotel/bar (funny opening hours) and fish restaurant (recommended but book first) along with the obligatory church. All alongside the river with views. Lots of interesting places to visit and all within an hour or so drive. If you are a cyclist it's ideal with many designated cycleways and quiet roads
First the house : beautiful. A fabulous garden with space for children to practice riding their bikes , play football , trampoline and run then the awesome table tennis room and darts. Lots of different areas to sit and lounge and read. Discreet washing line ! Brilliant outdoor oven / plancha aswell
As a BBQmade outdoor cooking easy. We had every meal sitting on the lovely patio. Inside the beds were comfy there was the option of fans to cool everything down when the temperature outside soared. Great indoor kitchen facilities. Beautiful shower room. And we only discovered the treasure trove of games on the last night. Then step outside to enjoy the beautiful river. It was a treat to be able to sit and watch the river flow by or paddle upstream and play ball and kayak Then the fabulous Loir a velo. On the doorstep ! It meant we could easily all cycle to Chinon ( with a significant hill climb ) ,Usse ( sleeping beauty’s castle ) and Villandry. Avoine is a beautiful town with a swimming pool ( and slide ) fab boulangerie etc and it’s own supermarket. We hope to return next year as there’s more to explore and repeat.
