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.
Situated in the pedestrianised centre of Vendome the gite is convenient for the shops, restaurants and historic buildings in the town. It is inside a quiet courtyard garden and facing the owner's house. Parking is not on site but in one of the public carparks, not too far away, but luggage etc can be off-loaded at the door.
The upstairs bedroom, with 3 single beds, is not as attractive as the rest of the space, but suitable for older children. The bathroom and separate toilet are downstairs.
Potential users should be aware that the wifi signal is intermittent.
