This is an excellent gite. One of the best properties we have stayed in during our visits to France. The owner is a wonderful lady and everything was in perfect order on our arrival. We were viewing properties for sale in the area and the location was perfect. Our stay was short but we had a fantastic time. Thanks you so much. Regards Rita and Andre
We have rented a dozen gites or so over the years and this was by far the best we have ever had. The gite was immaculately clean and is kitted out with a fantastic kitchen where everything was spotless and worked perfectly. The same was true of the bathroom and the amazing shower. The sitting room was equipped with DVD player, WiFi, a HiFi system and loads of fantastic books. It was like being at home! The location is just perfect - there are two supermarkets just a 3 minute drive from the gite but you can't see it/hear them! You can park right in front of the gite and the patio area is great for evening dining - totally private and not overlooked. The location is perfect for exploring the chateaux of the Loire: Tours, Blois, Montresor are all within easy driving range. Don't forget the Georges Sand house too - that was well worth the 90-minute drive. Pascale was a charming host, made us feel very welcome and gave us loads of insider tips for things to do. We had a great time and the weather in late August was just perfect. I'd go again!
First of all a big thank you, a real recognition for me and for the lodging with hosts so courteous and curious of art and history. Exchanges of this quality really make you want to continue the adventure. Sometimes receiving some receptive and passionate hosts is like receiving friends or family. It's shared pleasure and we hope to see them at home. wonderful experience with for the first time for me this Scottish meeting so nice. What happiness
The gite is modern where it needs to be but it retains a huge amount of charm. Very well placed for acces to Loches (5 minutes by car, 8 minutes by cycle) and a super network of cycle paths around the Indre and Indrois. The owner lives next door and available when needed, but is extremely discreet when not. I highly recommend this gite.
It was very pleasant to recieve nice cyclists curious to discover the authenticity of villages and country side.thank you for sharing i am happy you love the cottage. Benvenue a mes amis anglais

The return road had to be tiring.

A great gite and lovely setting
Myself and my wife stayed for a week at the Pascale's gite in July and had a fantastic time. The accommodation is lovely and a pleasure to stay in. Patrice welcomed us on arrival and was most helpful and welcoming. There was a plenty to do even though the weather was not always on our side. Pascale even included loaning us some bicycles to venture out on. I fully recommend staying her for any British couple or family - you will have a lovely holiday.
