The Cottage is very rustic and full of charm. It is in need of a little repair here and there.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and appreciated the use of the pool and the warm welcome Anne showed us. It might be helpful to have a guidebook in the cottage to explain how to use some of the appliances, where to shop etc and there were things missing in the kitchen so we asked for these to be provided. The atmosphere of the Chateau and the grounds are beautiful and it is in a stunning setting with forests nearby to walk through. Perhaps the drive/garden area around the cottage (quite overgrown in parts) could do with some attention but it adds to the very relaxed feel of the place. It is very quiet at night (only the owls hooting!) and very accessible to Durtal and lovely place to visit in the Loire Valley. Thank you for our stay and we hope to return one day!

Sehr schöner und erholsamer Aufenthalt in reizender Gegend

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zusammen mit unseren beiden

Hunden zwei Wochen in dem reizenden kleinen Gärtnerhäuschen verbracht und haben die Zeit sehr genossen. Hier herrscht Ruhe und Natur pur, es gibt viel Platz, sowohl im Häuschen (bis zu 9 Personen) als auch im zugehörigen Garten, der den Hunden aufgrund des eingezäunten Geländes viel Bewegungsfreiheit lässt. Die Besitzer sind sehr herzlich und stets bemüht, alle Wünsche zu erfüllen. Wir wurden sogar öfters mit selbst angebautem Gemüse aus dem Schlossgarten überrascht. Als Ausgangspunkt eignet sich dieses Domizil zudem besonders gut für Unternehmungen zu den westlichen Loire- Schlössern ( die nicht so überlaufen sind wie die östlich gelegenen Schlösser ). Insgesamt ein sehr empfehlenswertes Urlaubsziel mit überaus reizenden Gastgebern😊?.

Chouette logement, grand et fonctionnel

  • 4 of 5

L'orangerie est vraiment une belle maison d'époque dans laquelle on a passé une belle semaine. La piscine chauffée a fait le bonheur des enfants et des plus grands.

Les petits enfants des propriétaires sont venus jouer avec les nôtres.

Les gentils chiens de la famille des propriétaires sont venus nous rendre des petites visites pour courir avec les enfants.

Maison bien équipée pour 10.

Une belle semaine sans prise de tête. Top !
