We love it ! We love it !

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fantastic!

An exceptional landlady Lucie, offers in the heart of Loire Valley, a comfortable, very clean and conveniently located apartment just right for our travel budget.

The apartment is in an historic XV century stone wall house at the gates of the Chateau Bourdaisiere.

The chateau belongs to a live-in Prince and was enmeshed in King Henry IV's illegitimate love affair story. Ohhhh !!! Great material for a romantic and educational vacation....

Every second weekend in September on the grounds of the Chateau a "Tomato Festival" is held where this year we enjoyed over 600 varieties of tomatoes.

Our apartment had a well-equipped kitchen, where we cooked daily.

Cozy intimate upstairs living/ tv room and bedroom appointed with a large bathroom overlooking a spacious groomed courtyard, where we usually had our breakfast/ lunch. Supermarkets and stores nearby.

First time for us in the Loire Valley, we found the location very close to many chateaux to visit for a day trip and we extended our stay from 5 days to 10.

We got the most help and information we needed from our darling owner, Lucie - an intellectual, entrepreneur, world traveler, and retired teacher. She was very accommodating with everything necessary including a washing machine, a warm sweater or an umbrella for a cool rainy day.

.... and when you also meet Rene your day will be full with good humor. He is an endless open book, passionate about many things : from opera singing and poem writing to theatre lecturing and authoring children books.

Both of them are treasures and well spoken in English and Italian.

The dinner offered to us in their house was as sophisticated as they are. Starting by Rene with an opera aria from La Traviata and continuing through the late night with a palet of delicious food prepared by Lucie, and most enjoyable and far-reaching conversations.

Our stay was fantastic! We love it !

We ask God to bless them and for us to come back soon.

Très bon ! Je recommende

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes allées pour la deuxième fois et nous vous recommandons. Accessible par tout, soit en voiture; très bon pour balade en vélo, randonne. Pour les amoureux du vins, la maison se trouve bien proche de très bonnes caves à vin, en spécial du vin Bio. L'accueil chaleureuse et toutes les attentions nécessaires pour passer de bonnes vacances dans la région. Location spectaculaire pour ceux que on envies de visiter Le Château de Chenonceau et d'autres attractions dans la région. Parfait !

Cinque giorni come in una favola

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati benissimo! Renato e Lucie, i due proprietari ci hanno fatto sentire come in famiglia e con gentilezza e discrezione hanno reso il nostro soggiorno indimenticabile.

Abbiamo soggiornato nella casetta/depandance che abbiamo trovato pulita e completa di ogni confort.

Sofia e Matteo, i nostri 2 bambini di 6 e 9 anni, avevano a disposizione il giardino per giocare e ancora adesso ricordano questo posto con molto affetto.

Inoltre, la posizione a Montluis sur Loire è strategica per visitare la maggior parte dei castelli più famosi della Loira, se torneremo in questa regione, sicuramente sceglieremo di tornare qui!
