Well presented large gite in open field surroundings.

  • 4 of 5

We found the key in the specified spot and sorted our party of nine out into the bedrooms. All was clean and tidy. We had wonderful weather and made the most of the outside sitting and dining areas.

Only one minus point. For a dwelling in the midst of a famous wine growing region there were no decent tasting glasses!

But we had a great holiday!

This place was tremendous! It is huge and very clean - it would be perfect for a big group of people. The pictures don't do it justice...for example, there is a lovely claw bathtub in the master room which is heavenly. The bedrooms are all decorated in such a lovely way. There is a place to park your car and the surrounding village is adorable. It was easy to find (with GPS) and was an easy check in and check out.

We were not able to meet Caroline (she was out of town at a wedding), but this was not a problem. She sent us clear instructions, and later her associate came by to introduce herself and to make sure things were going well. She was friendly and helpful.

We would definitely stay here again, and would recommend this to anyone would wanted an authentic French place to stay in the heart of a beautiful region.

Weekend sympathique à proximité de Chinon

Gîte récent, propre et fonctionnel ! J'ai passé ce weekend avec mes amis et 2 enfants en bas âge. Chacun avait son intimité. Le cadre est très agréable et calme. A refaire aux beaux jours ! :)
