Set in an idyllic part of the Loire amongst the vineyards. Ideal for two, very modern an comfortable inside and Sandrine (the owner) was very friendly and helpful. The cottage is a few moments for Bourguiel, a short drive to Chinon and Saumur and central for the main Chateaux. It is easy to get to, a short drive from the motorway (A85) and a five hour trip from Calais (with stops). We will be back next year for a longer stay.
Ideally located just a short walk from Montsoreau centre, this is a lovely property in a beautiful location. Its quirky layout takes a little getting used to at first (garden and parking at top, exit to village at bottom of the the three storeys), but this adds to the charm. The house is stylishly appointed and well-equipped. The owner, Luc, gave us a friendly welcome and does not hesitate to respond quickly to any questions.
We didn't use the courtyard at ground level for breakfasts, as others have commented, because the temperature was a little too cool in the mornings at this time of year (mid to late September), but the garden at the top level was ideal for late afternoon snoozes in the sunshine once the days had warmed up (which they did - we enjoyed sunny days with temperatures up to 30C during our stay!).
With a little manoeuvring in the narrow street outside, we managed to park in the courtyard on a few days, and this makes it easier to load and unload the car.
A very pleasant and relaxing stay. Thank you Luc.
