Wonderful welcome from Carol and Carl to this quiet cottage in the countryside of the Loire Valley. The cottage itself was ideal for our needs as a couple with outside space to relax and enjoy the tranquillity. The location of the cottage was ideal for travelling around and Carol and Carl had plenty of ideas and suggestions for trips, visits and walks. We did day trips to Saumur, Villandry Chateau, Le Mans and Angers. Nearby towns of La Fleche and Bourge were ideal for supplies of groceries and petrol. We also walked around the almost traffic-free country lanes near the cottage. We wouldn't hesitate to go back and stay at this cottage again.
We have just returned from a wonderful 10 day holiday at Fleur de lys cottage. We travelled with our young family on the Euro tunnel and found the drive pretty good and straightforward. When we arrived at the cottage we were wowed by how beautiful it was. Both the cottage and gardens exceeded all our expectations. Carol and Carl were very friendly and made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. They gave us information on the local area which was a great help. We would certainly recommend a visit to Villandry Chateau and gardens and a trip to Saumur. Our favourite place was the beautiful beached lake at La Flèche which is the perfect spot on a hot a summers day. We spent lots of time enjoying the sun in gardens around the cottage, our young daughters loved the swimming pool, playing in the gardens and watching the cows in the next field! This was the most relaxing family holiday we've had. It was so peaceful staying in the countryside, but being only a short drive from supermarkets, patisseries etc meant we could enjoy an easy home from home holiday which included lots of bbqs. Our daughters loved their first adventure to France and want to come back again! Thank you for a really lovely holiday, we just wish we were still there!
