We had a fabulous two-week holiday in this cottage. Claude and Marie-France are very generous, thoughtful hosts and gave us a warm welcome.
Everything you might need for a self-catering holiday is provided. At ground floor level: a modern bathroom and washing machine, kitchen with oven and hob, fridge-freezer and all the cooking/dining equipment you might expect, along with dining table and chairs for four. A lounge area with comfortable sofa if you wish to spend time indoors - watch tv/read/play games etc., and also a built-in cupboard for hanging clothes. Good wifi connection was also appreciated. Steps lead up to the mezzanine with very comfortable double bed, bedside table and ottoman for clothes storage. Outside is a table and 4 chairs for outside relaxation and dining, either on the lawn with beautiful weeping-willow tree, or on the white-pebble patio with stone barbecue - lots of outside space so you can move round with the sun!
We visited many stunning chateaux and towns on La Loire, between Blois to the West and Sully-sur-Loire to the East - all comfortable day-trips. Away from the river, Chartres is unmissable, but also recommend Dourdan and Yevre la Chatel. Loved the steam-train ride from Pithiviers which operates on Sundays! Countryside surrounding the cottage is quiet and fairly flat, ideal for cyclists (which we are not!) and walkers (with an ageing dog, which we are!!) We would not hesitate to recommend this holiday accommodation and would love to return one day.
This property is made up of three gites that acommodated 17 of us (4 families and grandmother). We never felt over crowded and the space available is so huge that I often had to hunt for family members.
Two of the gites have new and modern interiors. These were great. The biggest gite is described as rustic, but desperately needs some TLC. People from this side of the property preferred to use the shower in the newer gite next door as it was far more inviting.
I would recommend this property due to its sheer size being able to accommodate such a large group, as long as people are aware that one section is much older and does let down the rest of the property.
Oh, and Disney is 1h30 away!
