We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Florence's apartment. The apartment was extremely comfortable, well equipped and very clean with all the modern touches. We also enjoyed the benefit of having an enclosed yard for parking and our dogs who were made most welcome by the owners. The accommodation was only a 10 minute stroll to the town centre, shops and restaurants and river/beach. We were disappointed that the town was undergoing major works but hopefully all will be finished before the summer season of 2019. Great location for attractions in Loire Valley. Would definitely recommend this accommodation.

As gite newbies, and seeking somewhere for a stopover en route to Bordeaux with car and two bikes, we thought this fitted the bill after checking that we would be able to keep the bikes somewhere safe. We ended up booking three nights so as to have an opportunity to get a first taste of the Loire Valley for a possible future holiday.
In fact the stay exceeded our expectations in so many ways, and we may well return to this very place one day.
Our compact gite was perfect for a couple, consisting of an open plan living area with a separate bedroom and a spacious en-suite shower room, all very nicely done. The gite can accommodate an extra two in the living room but it is really meant for two.
There is a table and chairs outside and you can help yourself to a barbecue.
There is also a laundry room adjoining, where games and tourist information can be found. This facility is shared with a second, larger gite with three bedrooms and sleeping up to 10 (four in bunk beds). For a larger group, renting both gites seemed a very enticing prospect.
The gites have use of the owners' spacious, attractive and completely enclosed gardens, in which several play facilities have also been laid on.
We visited Villandry (famous for its kitchen garden) and Clos de Lucé, the house where Leonardo da Vinci spent his final years, and spent a lovely day cycling along the Loire, where cyclists are really well catered for.
So all in all, much more than a mere stopover, with Lucie's gite providing a perfect venue for our short stay, but in which we could happily have spent several more days.
Everything we needed was provided, a bubbly treat awaited us on arrival, and the double bed was very comfortable.
