The house was very well equipped and renovated to a high standard . Extremely clean and comfortable - good central location to explore - we visited Blois , Chambord , Chenonceaux and Montresor . The owner kindly met us at the property and we managed easily with a little English and French conversation. The cottage is about 15 min walk to the village centre with shop and restaurant and bakers . We visited Jose Marteau vineyards at Thessay to taste wine and were made very welcome there.
