                                                          Great house with a fabulous Spa and garden

                                                          4 of 5
                                                          The house was just as in the pictures. The house was clean and tidy upon arrival, only a couple of maintenance issues to note for our stay one of which was a damaged top step on the stairs which was a trip hazard and a worry with young children. The other issue was on the gas hob were one of the pan holders had a missing arm, which resulted in a pan falling over which tripped the electricity out, with the owner away on his holidays this proved difficult and left us without power for about 4 hours until he could get his friend to call around to turn the tripped switch back on as we did not have access to it. Other than this we really enjoyed our stay we all loved the Spa pool, however this could have been done with being cleaned once or twice during in our stay. The garden was great also, the house was both modern and had quirky touches that we loved. The location of the house is lovely and quiet situated off one of the main roads only a few kilometres from a very large hypermarket, and a few extra kilometres in the other direction the nice town of Rambouillet where you can get a train into Paris in 30 minutes. Disney was only 1 hour 30 minuet drive from the house also. Overall we had a great holiday here with some great times and memories made with good friends. We would defiantly recommend staying here and will consider staying again in the future.

                                                          Fantastic gite in a great part of France

                                                          We have just returned from a fantastic week-long stay at Le Clos du Lutaine. The gite is wonderful - a brilliant mix of antique furniture, bedrooms and sitting/dining room, along with very modern kitchen and bathrooms. There is both spacious and secluded garden areas, which are very well looked after. The facilities on offer are very comprehensive - WiFi, BBQ, coffee machine, HiFi, induction hob, microwave, sun lounger, cot, etc., etc. - there was nothing we needed which wasn't available. Importantly for us on this trip, there was a small room within the main bedroom which the cot was set-up inside (a cupboard, essentially!) which worked perfectly for getting our one year old to sleep, yet keeping him close by. One small niggle is the close proximity of the road - there is some slight traffic noise - but this didn't detract from our enjoyment overall, and we hardly noticed after mentioning it to each other at the start of our stay. The Loire area is packed full of chateaux, forests, and great restaurants so we were never short of things to do. You will want a car to be able to get around though. Blois and Cour-Cheverney combined have everything you will need food and drink wise - most things you will find 3km away in Cour-Cheverney in fact, and we found the locals very friendly. Overall, highly recommended.
