My wife and I booked the cottage hoping that it would provide a perfect bolt-hole for the two of us to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary together in idyllic surroundings in rural France. We were absolutely delighted with our choice! The house was tucked away in a quiet Loire-side village, nestled between Burgundy to the east and Berry to the west, with an abundance of delightful towns and villages within easy reach, open countryside all around, beautiful vineyards in abundance, restaurants and cafes of every possible kind within both walking and easy driving distance, and many, many activities to follow/undertake - cycling (bicycles provided), canoeing, boat trips, walking, and on and on... Not only was the gite itself as clean as a new pin, comfortable, and internally modernised to a high standard, but the owner also provided several pages of advice about things to do and places to visit in the area, which we followed happily (and very successfully) without anywhere near exhausting the list in our 2 week stay.
We had a truly memorable holiday, and we cannot recommend it highly enough. If you want a taste of authentic France, and the opportunity to explore the Upper Loire from a genuinely comfortable base, you would find this cottage in Mesves sur Loire very hard to beat indeed. We shall certainly be recommending it to the wide circle of our friends and family...
Highly recommend if you just want peace and quiet or if you want to drink the incredible wines of the region. Sancerre is a beautiful little hilltop village as is the surrounding countryside in and around the Loire. The Gite has everything you could need and the nice touch of a fabulous bottle of chilled white wine was gratefully received. Would definitely return. Five Stars all the way.
