Cave house in the heart of a historic village
average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews

Really different living experience and quirky location - set in a lovely friendly village

  • 5 of 5

Excellent south facing private terrace, good for afternoon/evening drinks and supper. The property is well equipped and in a great spot, close to village centre, 1 mins walk from pizzeria and local bar. Owner lives across street so is on hand if need arises. Parking close by but not immediately adjacent to property.

Cozy, comfortable and romantic!

  • 5 of 5

We spent in this cliff dwelling 4 wonderful days and nights. The apartment is perfectly located - in the middle of quiet village, just below the castle of Luynes, few minutes walk to groceries, small pizzeria and bar just opposite the door. Parking places are available on a side streets. It's about 10 minutes drive from Tours which is good starting point for exploring Loire valley with its famous castles and beautiful medieval towns. The apartment itself is most cozy, comfortable and romantic cave one can imagine. It's large, extremely well equipped, lovingly furnished and decorated with a lot of attention to even a small details. Large terrace with a barbeque is a huge bonus especially in sunny afternoons. Bottle of wine waited for us in a fridge for a reception. The owner is very nice and welcoming person, very easy to communicate with despite we don't speak French. We spent there very enjoyable and relaxing time. One of the best places we stayed in ever. Will be happy to recommend the apartment to everyone! Margarita & Gadi from Israel

Sehr komfortable Wohnung und interessante Gegend

  • 5 of 5

Das Wohnen in einer Höhle war eine super Erfahrung ,die uns viel Spass gemacht hat.Sie liegt mitten im Ort und trotzdem ist man ganz ungestört.Die Ausstattung ist geschmackvoll und hochklassig.Zudem bietet die Gegend viele Ausflugsmöglichkeite..Eine Bushaltestelle mit der Verbindung nach Tour ist um die Ecke.Metzger,Bäcker und ein samstäglicher Markt sind in 3 Minuten zu erreichen.Für den Supermarkt bräuchte man wohl doch ein Auto oder Fahrrad.Ein sehr netter Vermieter rundet einen wunderschönen Urlaub ab.Vielen Dank an Pierre Minier

Höchst empfehlenswerte Unterkunft !

  • 5 of 5

Schöne, grosse, moderne und vom Vermieter mit viel Liebe zu teils alten Details eingerichtete Felsenwohnung. Viel zu gucken in der "Höhle". Sieht alles aus wie auf den Bildern und ist mal eine ungewöhnliche Unterkunft unterhalb des Schlosses von Luynes. Die Austattung ist sehr gut und neu. Zum Empfang gab Sekt ( nun ja, halbtrocken) und Wasser im Kühlschrank. Die Terrasse ist riesig sehr sonnig und die Weintrauben fallen einem in den Mund. Parkplätze gibt es genau gegenüber in einer Seitenstrasse. 10m von der schönen Haustür ist eine Bar, die auch regionale Lebensmittel verkauft und eine Pizzeria a emporter für die Terrasse. 2min fürs Baquette und den Schlachter und ca 2km die Strasse rauf zum Supermarche.Samstagvormittag findet ums Eck unter historischen Dach der Markt statt. Im Ort gibt es das Schloss ( schön ruhig im Vergleich zu Anderen) und etwas ausserhalb, aber zu Fuss erreichbar, ein römisches Aquädukt. Wer Bettwäsche, Hand- und Geschirrtücher mitbringt spart 30 Euro. Die ruhige Wohnung ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt für die Erkundung der Burgen, Schlösser und mittelalterlichen Städte an Loire, Indre, Cher und Vienne. Auch Loches oder Chinon sind mit dem Auto noch gut zu erreichen. Ein paar Französichkenntnisse in Schrift und Wort sind für die Kommunikation mit dem, sehr netten, Vermieter von Vorteil. Ist wirklich ne kleine Perle die Wohnung. Wir hatten eine schöne und entspannte Woche. Katharina und Thomas aus Hambourg
