About Sarah & Jean-Michel

We are a French/ British family living in London. We fell in love with the village of Montrésor when we lived in Paris and visited on holiday. We have owned property in the village ever since and come back as often as we can.

Sarah & Jean-Michel purchased this cottage in 2014

What makes this cottage unique

The Gamekeeper's cottage is wonderfully secluded, by the banks of the river and set in lovely grounds. Only a few minutes' walk from the heart of the village, you will have the perfect view of medieval village of Montrésor and feel as though you have stepped back in time.

Beautiful, tranquil stay

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in montresor in the Gamekeepers cottage and loved the cottage and the village. We were there in late autumn so the area was incredible quiet . We did some wonderful walks ( the maps we got from the tourist information centre) and visited many of the chateaux around. We would have liked more information before we arrived but the local mayor helped us find the place as we arrived late. Some of the equipment in the kitchen needed replacing and having access to some wood would have also been nice as the open fire is terrific. Another chair in the lounge room was also needed. However we totally enjoyed our time here.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

What a pleasure to stay with Sarah and Jean-Michel. The Cottage is welcoming and a delight to stay in. It exceeded our expectations, was even more than we had hoped for. Not only was The Cottage well set up and comfortable, it was warm and inviting, it felt like a home. Knowing that we could travel around the Loire Valley and come home to sit and relax only after a short drive from many of the splendid sights within the area made the overall experience sensational.

We would come back here time and time again, without hesitation.

Wonderful historic cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage at Montresor was a lovely place to stay. It's location was an ideal base for exploring the Loire Valley as many of the popular attractions are an easy drive away. The local Chateau is also well worth a visit. I was made most welcome with the provision of fresh baguette, jam and milk to kick start the stay. The gardens are a delight and enjoyed with a glass of wine or two.

As a solo traveler the cottage was spacious and comfortable though two or more people would easily be accommodated. Highly recommended.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our little house in the Orchard...... it was just wonderful! The village is just short walk away.... it has everything you need, grocery store, gas, pharmacy, bank, restaurant and tourist office. All staffed by very friendly folks. There are wonderful walks around the area and it's a short distance to many of the Loire Valley Chateaux. There is a chateau in the village that is open for visitors.

The house itself is very comfortable. We had several days of rain..... it was nice just to relax and read. ( Lots of good books in English.) The kitchen is well equipped....did lots of cooking since there was rain. The kitchen and dining room look out on the garden filled with flowers and trees. One morning while eating breakfast we watched a woodpecker hunt for his breakfast in one of the apple trees. Gathered apples and made applesauce .......Just lots to do if you want to be on the go and a lovely place to unwind and relax. Looking forward to our next visit!

Cute cottage in amazingly beautiful village

  • 4 of 5

Here's some things that we really enjoyed about the cottage:

Montresor is fabulous and love the fact that the cottage is right across the lane from a gorgeous river with wonder walking paths.

Loved the privacy and seclusion of the property

Loved the guide you put together - was really helpful

cute kitchen/dining area

There were just a few minor things that would have helped like extra towels and better fitting bed linens. But overall really enjoyed our stay and this cute cottage in such a beautiful, quiet village.

There is a wonderful chateau in the village and the many famous Loire Valley chateaux are within 45 minute drive: Chenonceau, Amboise, Valençey, Villandry, Azay-le-Rideau... to name a few.

Clos Lucé, Leonardo da Vinci's last home is excellent (in Amboise). The zoo Beauval in St Aignan is world class and has giant pandas, the only ones in France.
