What a wonderful holiday. My family of 8 enjoyed the French life for almost two weeks in beautiful surrounds and in a wonderful unique house. The village of La Bussiere was a good base from which to explore the Loire valley visiting local towns and chateaus. The restored priory was roomy so everyone could find their own space, coming together for meals and games. The house was well equipped and each member of my family thoroughly enjoyed the time in the beautiful old house. The local La Bussiere Chateau and its grounds were a delight to visit and explore. Gien and Briare were visited regularly during our stay as they were close by and offered more variety in grocery shopping and markets. However the local store in La Bussiere was fairly well equipped and the shop keeper very helpful and friendly. Our other trips included Montargis, Orleans, Fontainbleau, Chambord and Sully Sur Loire as well as many little places in between. Being so close to Paris we were able to drive and park and then catch a train into the capital to explore its offerings. It was all relatively simple. We enjoyed exploring chateaus and particularly liked the fairytale castle at Sully Sur Loire. The boat ride on the canals at Briare was a unique experience too.
The only issue I had with the property itself was that the lawns needed mowing and the gardens tending. Upon leaving there was some confusion about the sheets but that was sorted with a phone call. I will be recommending this property to family and friends.
The house is okay, but not suitable for eight people. We were four and a baby, and that was just good .The house is very noisy and except for one room on the ground floor, the rooms are rather klein.Pluspunt is the large garden.
