Peaceful oasis in bustling region

  • 5 of 5

We found this house and garden an excellent base for our stay in the Loire Valley. Located in beautiful countryside between the Loire and the Cher, just at their junction, the house is a little way off the beaten track, but within easier reach of the lovely village of Savionnieres which has great character and shops for supplies.

Our host, Marie, was warm and friendly and the decor shows her design touch. She is full of energy and provides many suggestions for things to see and do, and clearly has a great love for the area. The house is stylish and comfortable. The stairs are rather steep and something of a challenge for older less mobile people. The garden provides a delightful spot for breakfast or evening drinks.

There are many attractions in the area for all interests, but we concentrated on visiting our favourite chateaux, walking along the riverbank and just relaxing.

Overall, the property was as described, and clean and well-maintained. Our host was charming and helpful. We would certainly recommend this property to a friend.

Owner's Response: Hi, dear guests, It was a pleasure to receive you. To exchange with you about what to see. What you have already visited, and what should be great to discover, or to visit again after having listened to your envy. Chat with you about paintings, the exhibitions you liked was also great moments. You brought with you your envy to see beauty. Your admiration for antiques, furnitures, art and it was so kind to share on your way back what you prefered. Come back soon...

summer quiet escape

  • 5 of 5

Ideal situation to stop and visit Loire Chateaus. In the middle of nature, close a charming village, where café and terraces offers typically french break. A place to rest, as well as a headquarter to dawdle between rivers, vineyards, and royal castles. Warm welcome, good quality of beds. We will come back.

Wonderful break

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, we received a very warm welcome from Marie. She is full of energy and helpful suggestions. Very much the artist, her works decorate the living room walls.

The house is very well appointed, the bedrooms very comfortable and bathrooms equipped with modern conveniences. The property abuts open fields and the garden provides a view of the Loire embankment just 200 yards away. Two friendly horses will probably approach you looking for a hand-out of stale bread. Exceedingly quiet, absolutely no traffic, the only noises being bird song and the occasional honking pheasant.

We walked to the river Cher, about 3 km from where one can glimpse the chateau Villandry on the opposite bank. If one wants to escape, and find the 'real' France one can do a lot worse than rent this property from Marie.

Owner's Response: Hi, dear guests, It was a pleasure to receive you at "Une Maison, Un Jardin". Your warned and cultivated eye made me look otherwise at the exhibited works. Thank you for your impression about your visit to the newly opened Olivier Debré Museum in TOURS. We liked your envy to discover the city of various points of view. Come back when the roses are blooming!

Best vacation rental experience we've ever had

  • 5 of 5

Marie greeted us with a welcome drink in the beautiful garden and even offered to let our three young sons borrow her grandchildren's bikes to explore. The cottage itself is beautifully decorated and can be described as a curated collection of a creative soul with an appreciation for things of beauty-everywhere you turn are little touches that give it so much personality. It has been recently renovated and everything was perfect. The kitchen is very well appointed for cooking, the beds very comfortable, nice linens provided and good hot water/water pressure throughout the home. The garden was just beginning to bloom, I can only imagine how gorgeous it must be a little later in the year-we actually decided to forego many of our planned excursions in the area to simply stay at the cottage and enjoy the peace of the area.

As amazing as the cottage itself is our hostess Marie truly made this trip for us-she was so welcoming and hospitable, she truly wanted us to have an amazing trip. We enjoyed her company immensely and even purchased one of her beautiful paintings. We left feeling like we made a life-long friend and hope to return to Une Maison, Un Jardin again in the future.

Owner's Response: Melissa and her family is a simply perfect guest to receive. It has been only happiness to have her and the whole family playing, relaxing in the garden and around. She was interested by a lot of things. The children are full of life and very polite. They draw well! They left the house in good order. The bikes were back at the right place every evening. Come back, dear friends, in summer, or fall. Anytime, you will be welcome! Watercolour and papers are waiting for your talent! The garden, the house, and I wait for your next visit.
