We had a wonderful holiday in lovely surroundings. There were 6 of us including 2 young children. The gite/cottage is lovely with 3 large bedrooms upstairs, living/dining room, kitchen and shower room downstairs. We had full use of the whole garden and swimming pool - shared with the owners - Annie and Alex are lovely, warm people who were very welcoming.
The grandchildren loved the pool which can be open air or used in the rain with the cover over it. The pool area can be locked so is very safe and there are lots of inflatable toys for the pool. There are swings in the garden and toys and plenty of space for kids to play in. Everything was provide from towels, tea towels to washing up liquid and toilet rolls Free wifi is provided, there is a TV and board games in the cupboard. When we arrived there were 2 bottles of local wine in the fridge for us. Annie and Alex only speak a little English and we don't speak much French but we got by with Google Translate and sign language. Chaulgnes is a small village but there is a boulangerie and small supermarket. A big thank you to Annie and Alex
This property is set in a delightful garden, ideal for taking meals outside. The house is very comfortable and everything necessary is provided. There is one bathroom with a good shower. The cooking facilities are sufficient for holiday use. We stored our bicycles in the shed. Car parking is opposite in lay-bys.
The canal tow path is on one side of the property and the river Loire just across the road. So this I a good base from which to explore this part of the Loire Valley and to visit Sancerre/ Pouilly.
