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!

Habitués à découvrir chaque année une nouvelle région de France avec nos 3 enfants, nous y avons passés nos plus belles vacances.

Les nombreuses activités alentours ne manquent pas (visites des Châteaux de la Loire, Zoo de Beauval, Futuroscope, vélo au long de la Loire...).

Le gîte de La Marelle est aussi idéalement équipé à l'intérieur (+ les draps et les serviettes fournis !! bien pratique) qu'à l'extérieur (terrasse équipée, grand parc clôturé, étang,...) dans un cadre reposant et bucolique.

Enfin, les hôtes, Alyxe et Christophe sont particulièrement sympathiques et accueillants en toute discrétion.

Le charme de l'endroit opère instantanément et les vacances commencent dès l'arrivée :)

Nous recommandons vivement ce gîte et ses hôtes

Ein rundum perfektes Ferienhaus, wärmstens zu empfehlen !!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben einen wunderschönen Kurzurlaub in dem geschmackvoll eingerichteten Ferienhaus von Christophe und Alyxe, unseren sympathischen und gastfreundlichen Vermietern, verbracht. Es fehlte wirklich an nichts: Handtücher, Geschirrtücher, Bettwäsche, eine kleine, aber komplett eingerichtete Küche mit ausreichend Geschirr und Besteck, Salz und Pfeffer, Öl und Essig, etc. Ja, sogar eine Flasche Rosé und eine Flasche Apfelsaft standen im Kühlschrank für uns bereit. Das Haus liegt ruhig, umgeben von einem großen Park mit einem kleinen See. Auf der Terrasse fanden wir eine Sitzgruppe, bequeme Liegestühle, einen Grill und einen großen urigen Holztisch vor, so dass man bei schönen Wetter auch draußen essen kann, mit Blick in den Park. In den Betten mit den wirklich guten Matratzen haben wir geschlafen wie die Murmeltiere. Das Ferienhaus liegt etwas außerhalb von Langeais, so dass man unbedingt auf ein Auto angewiesen ist, wenn man die zahlreichen Schlösser, Weinkeller und die nahe gelegene Stadt Tours besichtigen will. Der nächste große Supermarkt (SuperU) war nach etwa 10 Min. Fahrtzeit zu erreichen. Es lohnt sich, Fahrräder mitzubringen, weil es in der Gegend, vor allem an der Loire entlang, inzwischen ein ausgebautes Netz von schönen Fahrradwegen gibt. Wir waren vom 16. bis zum 23 April dort und wir hatten fast jeden Tag Sonne! Ein rundum schöner Urlaub!
