This place is an absolute gem! Christian and Marie are such welcoming and helpful owners, lovely gift on arrival too. The location is perfect to get around to so many places and do lots of the tourist bits, chateau Breze was a great recommendation from Christian. Having the pool was perfect for the afternoons.
Am already hoping to go back Summer 2019!
We were greeted with a very warm welcome from Sue and Steve and their bouncy fury companions Bruno and Elsa. The converted rustic farm house was ideal for our family of three generations, giving the younger generation a kitchen and living room of their own to relax. Our family has always loved on a farm in England so for us it was home from home, a real taste of rustic France. The location is rural, it suited us perfectly, although if you prefer a little more buzz and more glamour, this may not be the place for you.
The lovely private swimming pool was ideal for a dip in the very hot climate and well received by our 3 ‘adult’ children, who spend the week relaxing on inflatables in the warm and clean water!
The supermarkets and little town is a 10 minute drive away through rolling French countryside.
If we were honest most of the Chateaux and towns we wanted to visit were 30-60 minutes drive northwards but the property and owners were so warm and inviting that it was worth the extra drive. Where also told that because it it situated at the southern end of the Loire region that they get much of the hot weather coming up from the South of the country!
We made the long drive, 500 miles for to door in one day as we were limited to just a week but the roads were so easy, it was a long day but worth the journey and we would consider doing it again for knowing that you are arriving somewhere so calm, warm and welcoming puts you in the holiday mood from the minute you arrive.
Both Sue and Steve took time to book us restaurants and other activities to avoid us trying to stumble through the French lauguage over the phone!!!! Much easier when you can use sign langauge to assist the rather feeble pigeon French!!!
The only thing I should mention was that although the downstairs rooms in the old farmhouse were very cool the upstairs rooms in the eves could get quite hot at night in peak heat. And watch your heads on the low beams!!!
Overall we loved the whole experience of staying there and would book again!!!
