Beautiful apartment close to the Loire River

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay in Veuves at this wonderful apartment. The "gite" was beautifully furnished, the kitchen was well-stocked and everything was sparkling clean. With two bedrooms upstairs and a third bedroom downstairs, each with its own shower and sink, the layout was perfect for our family of 5. Veuves is very peaceful and the apartment felt secluded and private. Wonderful terrace which is great for lunch or dinner. Great location for visiting the chateaus and sites in the area. Our hosts were very generous with their time and gave us excellent recommendations for restaurants, wine tasting and things to do in the area. We would recommend the apartment without hesitation.

Absolutely perfect! Beautiful, charming and centrally located!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was our favorite accommodation during our two-week trip to France! The structure was amazingly and tastefully renovated with thoughtful details everywhere. Both the indoor and the outdoor spaces were as nice, if not better than advertised. The host was extremely accommodating and very helpful! We cannot wait to visit again one day.

Charming restored farm building in the enchanting Loire Valley, France

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely charming quiet restored farm building housed in a safe quaint village. The owners Nathalie & her family are also so very helpful with any needed resources. It's also a quick & easy drive into Ambois, and many other areas in the lovely Loire Valley.

Beautiful, confortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, perfectly renovated cottage with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Nathalie has created a welcoming cottage for visitors. We stayed three days but I wish we had stayed a week. The location is great for exploring the Loire valley. Don't miss the restaurant in the village. The meal we had was the best we had on our entire trip(maybe my entire life). We enjoyed waking up to the sounds of roosters and cows.

After eight days in London and Paris, this beautifully restored barn was exactly what our family needed. We stayed with our four children aged 8-1 and enjoyed every minute. Nathalie and Tanguy are absolutely wonderful hosts. They are kind, concerned and very helpful. We were only here for three days and wish we would have stayed a week! Perfect place for a getaway. The small courtyard is so cozy and welcoming. The kitchen is fully stocked. Having a washing machine was great. But their beautiful restoration and kindness make this home PERFECT. It's a must see! Thank you so much Nathalie and Tanguy! It was wonderful to meet you!
