Loire house

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was very well equipped and had everything we needed. Madame Gautier was very welcoming and helpful especially when we had a minor problem due to our lack of knowledge. It is ideally situated for visiting the sites in this part of the Loire valley. We had a very enjoyable time and could have stayed another week.

Fantastic property with every conceivable requirement provided.

  • 5 of 5

A great base for exploring the region, provided you have a car or strong legs for cycling.

Great boulangerie in village and supermarket in the next village with a great bar.

Bar / restaurant in Hommes OK provided your not a vegetarian! But that goes for most of France!

Beautiful scenery, river, chateaux and degustation du vin, local walks with a great base to return to after your explorations.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your so positive appreciation. It's a pleasure to know that you had an enjoyable week in Touraine. I'll pass on your message to the chefs: hereafter, they must think of vegeterian people (many in France nowadays). Best wishes to you and your family, Françoise Gautier.

Bellissimo soggiorno

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo passato una meravigliosa settimana in questa bellissima casa, talmente ben accessoriata e confortevole da farci sentire come a casa nostra. Il giardino è spettacolare ed estremamente godibile. Non manca assolutamente nulla, nemmeno il barbecue.

La cosa che più ci ha fatto felici è stato lo scoprire che sia la casa che il giardino era tutto per noi, senza intrusioni da parte di nessuno.

La proprietaria è sempre stata cordiale e disponibile per qualsiasi necessità.

Mi piacerebbe veramente tornarci in estate.

Super location

Tout est dit par Sandrine b. La location est vraiment parfaite. Absolument rien ne manque. On s'y sent bien...La propriétaire est charmante et très accueillante. Elle met à disposition tous les documents nécessaires pour passer de bonnes vacances. C'est un véritable syndicat d'initiative à domicile. Impréssionant !

Gîte confortable et une hôtesse hors pair...

  • 5 of 5

Mon message risque d'être redondant, de manquer d'originalité, mais je ne peux résister à l'envie de partager avec les futurs occupants nos impressions sur cette agréable demeure. Nous y avons posé les valises quinze jours, et dès le premier jour, je dirais même dès l'accueil de la propriétaire, l'on s'y sent comme chez soi. On sent la présence attentionnée de notre hôtesse dans chaque pièce de la maison. Tout y est pour rendre votre séjour agréable.

Le cadre ne nous a pas laissés indifférents non plus,. Le jardin permet à chacun de profiter de la douceur du climat, guitare et lecture sous les arbres, sur la balancelle, apéritif et vins de Touraine à déguster en terrasse au salon de jardin ; et nous avons même pu admirer le ciel d'été, la voie lactée, et les étoiles filantes confortablement installés au milieu du jardin... Les enfants ont aussi adoré jouer au jeu de croquet...

J'oubliais : un orage assez violent et une coupure de courant nous a permis de passer un bout de la nuit aux chandelles à jouer à l'un des nombreux jeux de société... Bref, même un orage est agréable dans une demeure aussi confortable.

Pour terminer, je tiens à féliciter et à remercier l'hôtesse de ces lieux pour son accueil et sa gentillesse et lui souhaite bonne continuation.

Bon séjour aux futurs vacanciers.

Ps.Nous avons aimé :

- les jardins de Villandry,

- la cité médiévale de Chinon,

- le site troglodyte des Goupillères,

- le château d'Azay-le-Rideau,

- le marché de Langeais, le dimanche matin...

- et le Lac de Hommes a fait la joie des enfants (et des grands aussi …).

Owner's Response: Mes remerciements les plus sincères pour avoir pris le temps d'exprimer - sur le livre d'or puis sur le site Abritel- vos impressions et vos principaux motifs de satisfaction lors de votre séjour aux « Faluns ». Je pense que votre témoignage peut apporter de précieux renseignements pour ceux qui sont à la recherche d'un lieu de séjour qui corresponde à leurs goûts et à leurs envies. Dois-je préciser que c'est un bonheur de rencontrer et d'accueillir des parents et des enfants qui ont un véritable esprit d'ouverture et de curiosité, et savent même transformer les imprévus météorologiques en moments privilégiés de partage ? Vous souhaitant d'heureuses découvertes pour vos prochaines vacances, je vous adresse mes sentiments les plus cordiaux. Françoise Gautier.
