The house is in a beautiful French village, far from the maddening crowd but near some other gorgeous areas of the Jura. The photos available don't do the house justice. It's extremely spacious. We spent some time arguing every evening arguing about where to eat! The garden is absolutely stunning. Needless to say my teenage kids used the pool every day, (me the jacuzzi). We enjoyed frequent rides on the bikes provided, the area is reasonably flat so it's fairly easy. We strongly recommend this cottage for anyone with a family, (the house is fully equipt for any age, high chairs, changing mats etc.) Obviously you need to have a car but it's easy to move around the surrounding area.
A modern well equipped and spacious gîte with a pleasant outdoor seating and eating area. Externally it looks like a 'white box' - probably efficient and functional but not (in my opinion) perhaps beautiful or typical of the architecture of the area. Bring your own teapot if you need one! Set in its own pleasant garden with some unusual birds thanks probably to the vast deciduous forest (Chaux) nearby. We took the 10 minute train journey from nearby Montbarrey 'station' through the forest and into Dole which was good. There are no shops in La Vieille-Loye or nearby, so you need to plan carefully.
Neither our 'school' French nor the owners' English was good so the booking process via the web site emails wasn't easy. The whole booking process (for this, and for another gîte) through the HomeAway web site was very clunky and tedious. I would not choose to book through HomeAway again. The owners are very pleasant and helpful despite our language difficulties.
