We have enjoyed a wonderful week in the peaceful area of the Loir. La Petite Cachette was exactly as we imagined from the description of the property when we booked. The Gite is an old piggery which has been beautifully converted into an attractive holiday home. Inside the Gite the décor is clean and modern, it is well equipped and has everything you need, and more for a holiday. The large garden outside is perfect for relaxing during the day or enjoying a BBQ and glass of wine in the evening. The many and varied animal sounds remind you that you are in a rural setting. The house is situated in Les Halles which is a small hamlet a mile or so from the local town of Vaas where there are a few small shops and a pretty riverside to explore. It is also about twenty minutes from an enormous supermarket in Chateau du Loir. The location is perfect for exploring the many wonderful sights of the Loir and Loire areas. Our highlights were La Lude and La Fleche to the west, Vendome to the East and the lovely town of Saumur (great wine tasting area) in the South. Each of these towns were extremely pretty and full of character, and a plus for us was that they were not as busy/touristy as some larger towns on the Loire. The Gite is also well situated for Le Mans. Overall it was a great place for a holiday. Huge thanks to Alex and Andy who were great hosts, gave us lots of tips and information on the area and also tried very hard to befriend our grumpy dog, Daisy.
