Superb

5 of 5
This is the best Gite that we have ever stayed in .The owners have renovated the property to a very high standard and we would have been proud to own such a nice Gite. 3 Large well furnished rooms plus a superb shower room. The owners were available to answer any queries but were not intrusive and we loved the quiet location that gave us access to the Chateau on the Loire. We would have no hesitation in staying in this property in the future. George & Christine from Inverness Scotland.

Fabulous

5 of 5
The gite is amazing, very spacious, comfortable and well equipped. You have complete privacy overlooking the pond. (I called it a lake but apparently it's only a lake in France when by the mountains, however it takes 0.3 miles to walk round it!!) There is numerous wildlife to watch which is very relaxing. The outside space is also fabulous, a large patio with table, chairs, sun loungers and BBQ. The owners, Jaqueline and Patrick are lovely, very friendly and keen to ensure that you are enjoying your stay without being intrusive. They live on the site and are happy to help if you need any help or information. Luckily Jacqueline's English is very good as our French is basic!! We only used the downstairs space as there was just to two of us, however there is comfortable space for six. The kitchen is fully kitted out and the open plan aspect make it very light and airy. All the fixtures and fittings are to a very high standard and there is lovely attention to detail, e.g. the outside lighting, the velux windows. It is situated in a lovely area with many great places to visit near by. I would definitely recommend this gite. Merci beaucoup to Jaqueline and Patrick for a fabulous stay.
