A modern well equipped and spacious gîte with a pleasant outdoor seating and eating area. Externally it looks like a 'white box' - probably efficient and functional but not (in my opinion) perhaps beautiful or typical of the architecture of the area. Bring your own teapot if you need one! Set in its own pleasant garden with some unusual birds thanks probably to the vast deciduous forest (Chaux) nearby. We took the 10 minute train journey from nearby Montbarrey 'station' through the forest and into Dole which was good. There are no shops in La Vieille-Loye or nearby, so you need to plan carefully.
Neither our 'school' French nor the owners' English was good so the booking process via the web site emails wasn't easy. The whole booking process (for this, and for another gîte) through the HomeAway web site was very clunky and tedious. I would not choose to book through HomeAway again. The owners are very pleasant and helpful despite our language difficulties.
The location makes it very easy to see all the main sights and at the same time the gite is an oasis of peace and tranquillity. Everything you could possibly need is available in the gite, the beds are really comfy and the outside terrace is lovely for sitting and relaxing.
