Don’t want to recommend it as we want to keep it a secret but, best place ever, visit and you won’t want to leave.
Loved it, loved it, loved it
THANK YOU so much
You were really great guests!
You LOVE the country! So we aren't surprised if you want to come back.
About"secret" we laughed!
Beautiful, peaceful and luxurious
An lovely week of peace in a beautiful home. If you want to get away from if all this is perfect. The kids were able to forget their phones and get back to enjoying the outdoors. Bbqs every night looking out over the farmland and gentle jogs, walks and cycle rides made for a relaxing time. Our hosts were simply superb and even went way beyond in arranging bike hire for us in a local village.
Would recommend whole heartedly, a real find!
It was a delight to have your family as guests.
Come back when you want or enjoy any other place!

Heavenly location, perfect property
Lovely property set in peaceful rural location. Jean and Françoise were very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed and more, way beyond our expectations. We especially enjoyed giving the horse and donkey bread and carrots. Very enjoyable and relaxing week away from it all.
A wonderful property that has been converted to a really high standard
Just returned from a superb holiday in France. Peaceful and beautiful. Lots to see in the area if you wish to do so. Le Mans was a treat, and the trip on the tourist railway is not to be missed. The hospitality of the ownners was first class. We will definately come again.
Lovely Accommodation in a Peaceful and Relaxing Location
We spent a very enjoyable and relaxing 2 nights at this beautifully renovated property in Villedieu-le-Chateau. Surrounded by fields, the house was wonderfully quiet, with no traffic noise and fantastically dark night skies. The children loved the freedom and space, especially stroking and feeding ends of baguette to the donkey and horse in the field opposite the house, (visible from their bedroom window). Wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy more walks, cycles and blackberry picking, (cueillette de mûre)! Jean and Francoise were very welcoming hosts, thank you very much for the delicious confiture de prunes! Hope to return some time.
A beautifully renovated apartment and lovely, peaceful place with long views and delightful hosts.
We loved the local materials used and the care that had been taken in the renovation of this old barn. The place was a haven of peace surrounded by an open, flat landscape of farm fields. We sat on the terrace and looked at the long views during the day and the many stars visible at night due to no light pollution.
We also enjoyed feeding Tenor and Igor - the donkey and horse - on carrots and apples. They were very gentle and Tenor would greet us with a voiceless heehaw when he saw us!
We looked at local troglodyte caves of all different sorts - the chapel at Troo is well worth a visit - strange and a bit spooky but fascinating. We enjoyed the parts of the château at Ponce sur Loir that were on show and the wonderful structure of the pigeoniere. Villedieu and Chartres were pretty and well worth a walk around and we got our daily bread from the boulangerie in Chartres as well as lovely tartlet abricot for our tea!
Françoise and Jean - our hosts - were so kind and thoughtful and we enjoyed our conversations with them very much - me in very halting French and my partner a bit more fluently!
Watch your heads a bit if you are tall!
A very enjoyable visit.
