                                                              We spent four nights in this well equipped and comfortable gîte. Sarah-Jane made us very welcome and was on hand to answer queries. The deck area is great for eating outside although we only managed it once as the weather wasn't good. We enjoyed cycling through the vineyards and exploring along the Loire.

                                                              We wanted to explore some of the Loire area and were attracted by the photos and information to book a week at Annie's House. The response and information from Sarah- Jane Beaumont was excellent with information about the cottage and the surrounding area, clear directions as how to find the accommodation and a willingness to answer any questions that we might want to ask about our booking. We were warmly welcomed by Sarah- Jane who spent time showing us around the property and explaining all the details of the contents. The cottage is beautifully decorated and organised and had everything that we needed for a comfortable stay, including very good equipment for cooking our own meals. The whole place was immaculate, clean and tidy. There is a pleasant sitting room with comfy sofa and chair and enough DVDs to last more than a week, a well organised kitchen and dining area and an excellent bathroom, all on the ground floor. The WiFi was good too with a strong signal. Upstairs there is a spacious bedroom. Outside there is a lovely, sunny area for sitting which is separated from the owners' garden. In this way, we had the best of two worlds with access to the owner, should we need help, but privacy for all the time we needed. The location was good too. Set in the country the village has no shop but it is only a few minutes drive to the next village where, on a Sunday, we found a good bakers and butchers open. Not far away is Montreuil-Bellay, an attractive town where there is a super- market, a good food market on a Tuesday, interesting chateau and a few restaurants. From the cottage we were able to visit some of the interesting places in the Loire. One high-light was a visit to Saumur which is a pleasant town with an excellent market on a Saturday. The chateau there is being renovated so that, unfortunately, was closed. A high-light of the whole time, however, was lunch at the Bistrot, Les Tonton, owned by Sarah-Jane and her husband, Gerald. In true bistrot style, the food was fresh, well cooked and beautifully presented. We were so well looked after by Gerald and his team. I was sad to leave as we had enjoyed our stay and our meeting with the whole family.

                                                              Pure relaxation in rural France

                                                              We were lucky enough to stay in this wonderfully converted barn last year. It's always difficult to decide where to stay when you are faced with so much choice on the internet but when we arrived we knew we weren't going to be disappointed. From the minute you arrive there is a wow factor as you open the door to the vaulted ceiling living room, the rest of the property follows on with the same pleasing homely feeling. Everything you need can be found easily and the kitchen is very well equipped for every level of chef! Everywhere is clean and fitted out to a very good standard. We were blessed with lots of French sunshine for our stay and spent most of our time by the pool which is a very good size, large enough to have a decent swim if you feel like it and is surrounded with brilliant views of the local countryside. If you feel like exploring there is plenty to do in the local area and we found the information pack provided was really helpful. We would definitely recommend this property to our family and friends and would love to return in the future.
