Perfect stay in lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a super 7 night stay in this cleverly and well appointed converted stable saddlery, situated right next to the 16th century country chateau, lived in by the lovely owners, Gael and his wife. This is a very spacious and peaceful property, equipped with all we required for our stay. Each evening we returned to prepare and enjoy our supper, and enjoy it in the garden listening to the birds and crickets, etc., and watching the sun set over the garden and surrounding fields, and after a restful night, enjoyed breakfast in the garden again!

This is a great base for exploring the Loire area, with dozens of beautiful chateaux to visit, and countless pretty and interesting villages to explore.

The restored sleeping beauty style chateau of Azay le Rideau and lovely village is only five minutes away! ..... and others less than 30 mins in each direction.

We'll be back.....

Thank you!

Owner's Response: Nous avons été ravis de vous accueillir et serons heureux de vous revoir. Le gite est situé à 3 km d'Azay le Rideau, au coeur des chateaux de la Loire, vous dégusterez des vins de Chinon, Bourgeuil, Montlouis... et des fromages de chèvre. Le domaine est en bordure de la foret de Chinon. Nous avons équipé le gite de manière à pouvoir y vivre en hiver avec tous les accessoires nécessaires. Dans le jardin, chaque jour vous assisterez à un coucher de soleil différent. A très bientôt

An unforgetable stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this amazing house. It was nice, clean and well-maintained, and the surroundings were idyllic! We sat in the garden every evening and watched the sunset, whilst enjoying a good glass of regional wine.

The Chesnier house is situated just outside the picturesque village of Azay-le-Rideau, where you can find restaurants, cozy little squares, and a beautiful chateau (they are everywhere in the region!).

The owners were incredibly kind and hospitable. They were always keen on giving us advice about the sights of the Loire Valley, and on their recommendation we visited some excellent vinyards and went canoeing on the Vienne river.

We spent a fanstastic week in France, and we are definitely planning on going back sometime soon.

Wunderbare, zentral im Westen der Loire gelegene ruhige Ferienwohnung.

  • 5 of 5

Sehr schöne geräumige Ferienwohnung in einem Nebengebäude eines kleinen Chateaus. Sehr guter Zustand mit voller Ausstattung. Der Rosengarten hinterm Haus mit Blick auf Weiden ist wunderbar für lange Abende bis zum Sonnenuntergang. Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Da beide englisch sprechen, ist die Kommunikation unproblematisch. Gerne würden wir wiederkommen.

Calme et confortable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine dans ce gîte rural, en août 2016. Je résume mes impressions:

- Accueil chaleureux des propriétaires, prévenants et de bon conseil sur les curiosités touristiques de la région

- Environnement vraiment très calme, bucolique.

- Logement très bien équipé et confortable.

- Situation géographique particulièrement idéale pour visiter les sites touristiques de la Touraine.

Ce séjour très agréable nous donne envie de revenir dans cette location.

Much space!

  • 4 of 5


- much space

- well equipped

- thick walls: that's fine in hot summer days!

- nice and friendly owners


- wifi not working very good

- there are (friendly) neighbours (the gardener and his family); so when you sit in the garden you can hear them

We enjoyed our stay!!

Owner's Response: Concernant le WiFi, notre propriété est distante d'environ 4 km du point de connexion internet et est sujet depuis peu a des coupures intempestives du signal. Le disfonctionnement est en cours de réparation. Le jardin du gîte et celui des gardiens sont mitoyens et sont séparés par une haie. Nos gardiens sont respectueux de nos hôtes et de leur tranquillité.

Séjour très agréable et activités variées

  • 4 of 5

Cette location est très bien située par rapport à l'environnement : campagne tranquille mais ville et commerces à proximité, sites de visites proches (chateaux, nature, musées, ...).

Le descriptif du logement correspond parfaitement à la réalité, toutes les commodités sont disponibles et l'accueil des propriétaires est attentif.

A recommander.
