This was clearly once a very grand house and although its glory is somewhat faded now it is still very lovely. There was plenty of space for the five adults and two children in our party, and the girls loved exploring the gardens. There were loads of games etc available to use and there were also some lovely walks along the Loir. Unfortunately the pontoon was under water while we were there so we couldn't use the canoe etc; the WiFi was also not working but they would be the only two minor complaints. People from outside the Eurozone should also beware the somewhat eye-watering security deposit - if you can't leave an uncashed cheque in Euros then you will need to pay the €1400 a month in advance, which means you can't even put it on a credit card and hope to get it refunded in the same payment period.
Wonderful welcome from Carol and Carl to this quiet cottage in the countryside of the Loire Valley. The cottage itself was ideal for our needs as a couple with outside space to relax and enjoy the tranquillity.
The location of the cottage was ideal for travelling around and Carol and Carl had plenty of ideas and suggestions for trips, visits and walks. We did day trips to Saumur, Villandry Chateau, Le Mans and Angers. Nearby towns of La Fleche and Bourge were ideal for supplies of groceries and petrol. We also walked around the almost traffic-free country lanes near the cottage.
We wouldn't hesitate to go back and stay at this cottage again.
