We spent a very enjoyable and relaxing 2 nights at this beautifully renovated property in Villedieu-le-Chateau. Surrounded by fields, the house was wonderfully quiet, with no traffic noise and fantastically dark night skies. The children loved the freedom and space, especially stroking and feeding ends of baguette to the donkey and horse in the field opposite the house, (visible from their bedroom window). Wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy more walks, cycles and blackberry picking, (cueillette de mûre)! Jean and Francoise were very welcoming hosts, thank you very much for the delicious confiture de prunes! Hope to return some time.
For a party of 6 adults and 5 children (and a dog) this rustic and authentic French farmhouse more than accommodated our size. Plenty of toilets and outside space, we loved the pool and the peace and quiet.
It was in the middle of farming land so may be a bit too quiet for some (the Loir area caters slightly less for the tourist when compared to the Loire) but we made great use of the fresh country air as did the children (plenty of farming machines and animals to gaze at, including neighbouring donkeys!)
The owner and managers were also very friendly and only too pleased to help with queries. Would recommend
