Ideal for exploring the Loire Valley

Immaculately-presented house less than five minutes walk into the centre of Blois. Comfortable beds, excellent outdoor space, free lock-up garage for cars 75 yards away, rooms nicely separated from each other with separate bathrooms and a very friendly host. If we were in the area we would definitely stay here again.

Complete relaxation.

4 of 5
Beautiful setting, comfortable house, good fishing, no wifi, just what we wanted. Ideal place to switch off and slow down. There are no local facilities unless you get into the car but we knew that and took supplies accordingly, there is a bakers and small shop about 10 minutes away. Plenty of nice walks from the house and wildlife around. If you like peace and quiet and nature you will love it, if you want lively activities and lots of people probably not. My only negative is that the bed was not very comfortable, nothing that a new mattress wouldn't fix.
