The property is perfect for a couple and has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing break in the countryside. It is very well located for exploring many areas and wonderful places of interest within reasonable travelling distance. Also, the historic town of La Charite is right on the doorstep and there is much to see and explore without the need to use your car. We did not use the many and varied restaurants in the town, preferring to take advantage of the lovely garden and barbeque our own meals with the produce available locally at the good range of shops. The owner and her family are delightful, friendly and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble and Sylvie manages to be there with help and advice when needed and also keep very discreet to enable us to take full advantage of the facilities without intruding on our privacy. We would definitely recommend this Gite and would happily return should we wish to visit this part of France in the future.
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...
