Enjoyed our week here and the weather was great. The property is well equipped and the outside space is private and good for outdoor meals. We found the walk down into Blois fine - a bit more demanding on the uphill return! A great base for exploring the Loire Valley.
We (2 families, 4A 3C) had a fantastic stay in Christophe’s gite. It’s a beautiful, old building, full of chararacter and beautifully decorated.
It’s located in a quiet hamlet, but is ideally located between Tours and Blois with many chateaux within a short drive. There is a large supermarket in Amboise, about 10 mins drive away.
The gite was very comfortable with seating/eating areas inside and out. The splash pool was a big hit with the children and great for cooling down in the warm summer days/evenings.
There are three distinct bedrooms plus a day bed in a curtained-off area that can be used as a fourth bedroom, as well as bathrooms upstairs and downstairs so easy for two families to share the property. Obviously in such an old property there was no aircon but fans are provided upstairs.
The kitchen is well stocked and there is a large fridge/freezer. The washing machine in one of the outbuildings was also really useful.
Wi-fi was a little slow and worked better in the garden than the gite itself but it was fine.
Christophe was a superb host. He lives on the property but didn’t intrude but also answered any questions very promptly.
I would highly recommend this gite to anyone looking to explore the Loire valley. It’s a beautiful property in a fantastic location.
