Great Accommodation, very friendly owners.

5 of 5
This holiday gite was excellent. 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.

Nice house and garden with lots of equipment

5 of 5
Convenient location for exploring this area of the Loire. Visited Saumur Angers Montgeoffry and Brissac chateaux. Also Fontrevraud Abbey. All highly recommended. Then back to peace and quiet for BBQ in the garden with the occasional hot air balloon going overhead.
