We found the apartment easily from Nantes Airport (nearly 2 hours drive). We let ourselves into the apartment following the owners helpful instructions. Parking was extremely difficult and became a cumbersome past time. Located in the middle of the town centre, traffic was very busy and noisy at times. Parking was a premium (not helped as apparently the main car park was shut for restoration) The owners met us later on the evening of arrival and explained a few helpful points and thoughtfully left us a bottle of sparkling wine. The apartment was tidy, rustic, bright and airy and well equipped with most things you would need. The washer/dryer was really useful. The TV worked intermittently which wasn't a big deal for us as a DAB radio was provided. Internet worked well and a little desk is provided. The bathroom was roomy but could do with a make over. We did struggle with the shower - which although, thankfully, was hot and powerful ; it was set at an unreachable and unadjustable height over the bath. Also the shower curtain was precariously fixed to the wall in danger of falling down and does need attention. The bedroom was cosy and Bright with lots of mirrors and a little wardrobe. Whilst the mattress was very soft, and linen was provided; the pillows could do with replacement. There was alot of local literature provided although Many of the attractions and facilites were still closed for the winter season (chateau, boat tours etc) We had a lovely meal at l'Escargot and Grand Bleu. But be warned - Most places typically are closed on a Sunday and Monday. The Saturday market had a good selection of fresh fish and artisan products. We visited the stunning Fontevraud Abbey where, due to the quiet season, we had the place to ourselves. We were also given a free tour at the Ackerman Caves. All in all we would recommend to those who enjoy the rural quieter pace of life, and to non drivers ! but after 10 years of living and holidaying in France, we personally think it's time for a change ! On a final note our deposit refund took 10 days as opposed to the 3 days promised by the owner. Bon vacances !

Lucy's attention to detail, quality furnishings and equipment make for a very comfortable stay, the log burner was heaven in the evenings. Lucy was very welcoming and though we are fairly self sufficient, I think if we had needed anything, nothing would have been too much trouble. The Loire area is lovely, even in a very chilly January, in the Spring we are sure it will be stunning. Le Plantagenet restaurant just round the corner from the house was a great stop for a New Years Day meal, and Fontavraud Abbey is well worth a visit. Abbaye Cottage is highly recommended!
