Very Family friendly. Lovely hosts, and very clean and roomy yet cosy house.

Very Family friendly. Lovely hosts, and very clean and roomy yet cosy house. The outside area is well devided so both parts of the house are private.

We felt along that we were welcome to use all the facilities at any time. Francine made us feel welcome.

Comfortable stay in this lovely gite

  • 5 of 5

The gite is very large (larger than the photos imply), with plenty of space. It's also very well equipped with plenty of crockery, cutlery and kitchen bits. We found it to be very clean on arrival, as was the pool. It's in a very rural setting, away from it all. Nothing much nearby, but Blois is only about 12k away which has everything you'll need - the chateau is well worth a visit. The owners live on site and are very friendly and helpful. We had a great stay and would certainly consider staying again in he future. One teeny, tiny, polite request to the owners - please put either a plug or bowl in the kitchen sink 🙂.

Welcoming and friendly gite

  • 5 of 5

Though the weather was terrible for May/June (worst for 60 years?!) the gite was a great place to stay for our two families (4 adults and 5 kids). There was plenty of space inside so we never felt on top of each other and the arrangement of rooms and furniture was perfect. The accommodation was immaculate and very well presented. The owners were fantastic; extremely welcoming, helpful and friendly, whilst at the same time giving us plenty of space to enjoy our time away. The location was excellent; rural and therefore quiet whilst only being a short drive to Blois for all our shopping and entertainment needs. The pool was much enjoyed on the rare occasions the weather permitted us to be able to use it! The area is fantastic for exploring the Loire et Cher region. We would definitely return and hope next time we could bring some sun with us.

Séjour chaleureux à Noël 2015

  • 5 of 5

Gite spacieux et très agréable, bien chauffé et décoré avec goût. Avons rencontré des propriétaires très sympathiques, prévenants, amoureux de leur terre (agriculteurs bio). Séjour calme et reposant dans un lieu idéalement situé pour visiter les châteaux de la Loire.

Un petit Paradis

  • 5 of 5

Idéalement placé pour visiter cette belle région et ses châteaux, cette résidence allie charme, confort et art de vivre. L'accueil et les conseils de nos hôtes ont apportés ce plus qui fait la pleine réussite d'un séjour familial, nous étions dix.

Dans tous les cas, famille ou amis, n'y allez pas, COUREZ Y!

Fantastic Rural Loire Gite

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived back from a fantastic 2 weeks stay at this excellent Gite in a fabulous rural location .The Gite is extremely spacious inside and easily accomodated our family of 7. It boasts a fantastic master bedroom upstairs and two further bedrooms which were ideal for the children. Downstairs has a further double bedroom which was perfect for the grandparents with us to escape for some peace and quiet.

The owners Phillipe and Francine and their families live adjacent and are always available if required,but also keep themselves to themselves. Francine even went out of her way to arrange a doctors appointment for one of our children who had taken poorly.

The Pool is a great and extremely secure for smaller children and the indoor hot tub is great for relaxng after visiting the many attractions the Loire valley has to offer.

The Gite is ideally situated to explore the various chateau's, winerys and attractions throughout the Loire. For younger children LuLu park which is only 45 minutes away is fantastic to spend a very cost effective day. The property is also only 90 minutes from Paris so reasonably convenient for a day trip to see the sights or enjoy the shopping. This also means that EuroDisney is easily reached and our children thouroughly enjoyed the day trip.

Overall this is a great property in a fantastic location with excellent hosts.

Merci Boucoup Phillipe et Francine
