The gite has a lovely deco and I especially loved the mezzanine bedroom. The gite opens out on to a lovely little courtyard where we enjoyed alfresco dining under the stars! Highly recommended place to stay to explore the Loire and Vienne areas of France Thank you Rob and Claire for being great hosts

                                                                                                      4 of 5

The owners made sure that we had everything that we needed, including the heating, on some evenings. On arrival, Michelle and Phillippe greeted us and showed us around the property. The gîte was very spacious and well equipped. The patio with table and chairs was quite secluded and it turned out to be real sun trap. We were able to sit outside and read or take meals there on some days even in April. We would recommend a stay in this property and would love to return ourselves sometime. The area has a lot to offer, chateaux, vineyards and interesting towns and villages. We were out sight seeing a lot and it was an attractive and tranquil place to return to each afternoon. Mostly we ate out at lunch time and catered in the gîte in the evenings as it was a few miles to restaurants, bars etc. It was early in the season and we didn't mind at all.
