Great house, excellent lication

  • 4 of 5

This is the perfect house for a family with smaller children. There are lots of toys, bikes and games like table tennis, Fußball and a totally enclosed courtyard.

The Seine is a 5 minute bike ride away, the closest castle is Chamboard. Which can be reached by bike.

The house is large, super renovation job.

The only negative we experienced was that there was no closet space at all! We were there for only 3 days so it did not matter, but I'd want a closet or some cabinets if I was there longer. Also the hosts charged extra for sheets, which seems to be an annoying custom in France!

Une maison chaleureuse et agréable pour séjourner en famille ou entre amis.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très bon moment en famille dans cette maison bien équipée, confortable et facile d’accès. De plus, Agnès et Charles ont été attentionnés pour équiper la maison au dernier moment pour notre bébé.

Saubere, persönliche Unterkunft als guter Ausgangspunkt für Loire-Schlösser, bequem für 5-6 Personen

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus mit Nebengebäude ist ideal für Gruppen mit Kindern, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten im Ort und Umgebung, idealer Ausgangspunkt für Schlösser- und Städtetouren, Fahrradtouren. Alles sehr sauber, trocken und gut ausgestattet, vorzügliche Heizung, leider überladen mit persönlichem Nippes und angestautem überflüssigem Gerät. Gut der große Fahrradpark und Spielmöglichkeit in der Scheune, großer Kühlschrank und Herd. Sehr freundliche Betreuung vor Ort.

Vivre comme chez soi !

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accueil organisé par le voisin José que nous remercions. Une maison propre, coquette, très confortable, chaleureuse nous attendait avec bicyclettes, table de ping-pong qui nous assuraient une détente entre la visite des châteaux. En plus, des merveilleux livres sur les étagères qui nous donnaient envie d'y rester des semaines en plus allongés sur les chaises longues . La seule chose qui nous a déplu, c'est l'absence des draps dans des locations de Homelidays ce qui ne nous est jamais arrivé à l'étranger, sauf en France. Si l'organisation n'oblige pas les propriétaires des appartements et maisons à louer à fournir des draps et des serviettes de toilette, nous serons obligés d'abandonner les locations auprès de Homelidays.

Everything was perfect, except for the lack of bed-sheets which we had to bring with us. When we travel just for a few days, we do not desire to bring our entire' home equipment with us. This has nothing to do with the owners of this house, but Homelidays Policy does not require owners to provide bed equipment and linen for bathroorm which is a shame.

Vacances au coeur des châteaux de la Loire

  • 5 of 5

Merci à Agnès et Charles pour leur maison au charme si authentique. Tout est fait pour se sentir chez soi le temps d'un séjour en bord de Loire. La location est fidèle au descriptif, on y passe de superbes moments en famille avec vélos, baby-foot, ping-pong et les nombreux jeux de société à disposition. La maison est idéalement située : dépaysement, calme et pourtant à moins de 10 minutes de Blois et de toutes commodités. Nous avons pu découvrir la région et ses merveilleux châteaux. Très belle location au charme typique de la région, idéale pour les familles. Agnès et Charles vous donnent le sentiment d'être reçus chez des amis. Véritable invitation à la détente.

Location

Car: recommended

2 hours from Paris, the Chambord park gates the location is ideal for exploring the castles of the Loire: Chambord, Cheverny, Blois, Amboise, Chaumont, Chenonceau ..you are also near the Beauval Zoo, the largest in Europe.

Located 5 km from Blois city center, its shops and its market, St Claude de Diray is a typical village along the Loire which is especially known for its annual fair at 'yams'. Wine growers produce AOC 'Cheverny' on the town.
