Comfortable place in a great location

  • 4 of 5

This property is perfectly placed between Tours and Saumur for sightseeing, but to be honest we didn't venture far as it was just too tempting in the heat to lounge around and completely relax. Our host Christophe was very welcoming, and seemed to think of everything you would need. You have the run of the quite extensive grounds, with a large pond as the interesting centre piece, and there are loads of loungers and chairs to sit and relax in all over the garden, as well as hammocks in the wood which we had fun trying! The accommodation is simple and uncluttered, but comfortable and quite adequate for our needs; we all slept well which says a lot for the good beds. Would definitely stay here again if coming to this area and would recommend to friends and family.

Excellent Gite

  • 5 of 5

We thorougly enjoyed our stay at La Marelle. We arrived to find the house spotless and a bottle of St. Nicolas de Bourgueil rosê chilled and ready for us. The location is very quiet and peaceful but within easy travel to the many attractions of the Loire Valley. The gite is very well-equipped. Christophe is a wonderful host, providing much useful information and suggestions. He even delivered a fresh baguette for us early each morning. Highly recommnended.

The perfect base camp to visit the Loire Castles

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for base camp to visit by car the Loire Castles around Tours you should go to LA MARELLE. The house is stylisch, the landlord super friendly and you will enjoy the evening on the terasse close to a little, private lake. If you come with children you may have a problem: Our children wanted to stay every morning in LA MARELLE instead of visiting the Loire Castles. Great place!

magnifique séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons eu un accueil fort chaleureux de Christophe & Alyxe.On sent qu'ils ont la passion pour leur gîte et sont a l'écoute de leurs hôtes tout en restant très discrets. Le gîte est parfait ,rien a redire ,tout est nickel ,proche de différents sites touristiques .La bouteille de rosé fût un vrai délice ,merci pour cette gentille attention.On se sent comme chez nous,nous avons fait 2 délicieuses tartes avec les pommes du jardin ,le raison également était très bon.Encore un grand merci à Christophe & Alyxe . Et si nous avons la possibilité de revenir un jour , cela sera non seulement pour le gîte mais surtout pour revoir Christophe & Alyxe afin de partager une bouteille de rosé avec eux.
