Very roomy and bright, well furnished, nice big shower, well equipped kitchen, lovely big bed, private, secure parking and a warm welcome from the owners, Danielle and Jean Paul, who helped us out with a computer cable when we needed to download new software for our GPS. The internet connection was first class and the gite itself is very well located within easy reach of numerous walks and sites along the Loire. Should we return to this part of France this would be our first choice for self catering accommodation. It was a real pleasure to stay there.

House very good, clean and very well equipped and a lovely welcome pack was given to us when we arrived. Lots to see and do in the area, our favourites were Clos Luce, Chenonceaux and Cheverny. House is outside Amboise so car needed for shopping and sight-seeing but parking in Amboise easy and free in the right place - at Des Tanneurs, very convenient for town centre and close to Clos Luce. Francoise and Thierry were absolutely brilliant and made us very welcome. Francoise was very attentive whilst never intrusive, Perfect!
