It is very spacious and cool inside (even on hot days) due to the thick walls and small windows. We spent most of our holiday outside however in the huge garden, trying out the different seating areas and barbecuing. Plenty of choice of sun or shade and none of it overlooked. Dined at the local auberge twice (two minutes walk) We also very much enjoyed walking and cycling in the surrounding countryside which was a charming mixture of vineyards and sunflowers. Easy drive (or cycle) to many nearby chateaux - particularly recommend L'Islette and Langeais. Thank you for a delightful stay - we would love to return one day.
