Fabulous!!!!!!!

5 of 5
Was lovely to meet Laurence at the train station, then she drove us to accomodation and showed us around. Was given a lovely bottle of wine which went down very well with a baguette and some cheese and prosciutto for dinner that night. The pictures on website are very accurate, but even better in reality. Had a lovely courtyard at the front where we sat out and had a couple of meals and fed the little birds that came in each night. The area is very quiet at night and we slept very well. Gorgeous little gite with everything you could possibly want for a comfortable stay. Loads of information about the area and places to visit. The river is at the end of the street and a 15 minute walk gets you over the bridge to the beautiful old town of Blois. Very historic and plenty to see. We hired a car a couple of days into trip so we could see a lot more of the Loire area. Laurence came and picked us up and took us to the car rental, which was so kind of her. A grocery store and a lovely patisserie close by. Markets on a Sunday morning in the old town an absolute must. Food, fruit and veggies, clothes, bags, crafts, shoes, everything you can think of and more. Thoroughly recommend this charming, cosy but spacious rental. Laurence is a lovely host and extremely helpful, nothing to much trouble. When next in the Loire region will definitely book here again. Thank you again Laurence. Already missing Blois.

Charming Old House in Historical Village

5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Riviere, though the church bells first thing in the morning took some getting used to. Very well equipped and close to the wonderful town of Chinon. Strangely there are numerous DVD's in the house but no way of playing them. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing break.
