A great base for exploring the Loire Valley!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great family holiday in Bournand. There is lots to explore within a half hour drive - such as Chinon, Chenonceau, Fontevraud Abbey and, as recommended by Marie, the owner, the lovely Chateau de l'Islete, where you can picnic by candlelight during the summer. The gite itself is rustic, with pleasant garden and BBQ area and grounds, and despite some very warm temperatures during our stay, the bedrooms were still fairly comfortable at night. The local restaurant, open on Friday and Saturday nights, is also a handy place to try some of the fabulous wine from the region, without one of you having to drive and abstain!

However, there are some things that I don't think are clear from the description of this accommodation: 1) The pool is a 5 minute walk away. My children are 10 and 13, and are competent swimmers, yet it is policy for all under 18's to be accompanied and supervised. This isn't a problem, as long as you don't mind walking back and forth for drinks, and being away from the WiFi! 2) There is no washing machine. Marie provides washing services for an additional charge, yet at present, HomeAwaylists amenities as including a washing machine.

Having said that, we really did enjoy our stay here, I have actually already recommended the accommodation to friends (making them aware of the above).

Lovely stone gite set in lovely grounds. Well equiped with everything you needed.

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful holiday, lovely property with everything you needed. Clean and tidy and very well equipped. Marie was an excellent host answered any questions and nothing was too much trouble for her. The local area was beautiful with so much to do and see. We would definitely go back and recommend this to others.

Owner's Response: Michelle and her family were very nice and respectful guests. We really enjoyed receiving them in our Cottage, and the children were also kind and quiet. Hope to see the whole family later!
