Needs improvement

  • 1 of 5

The outside deck is the best part. The area is beautiful, quiet and private. However something needs to be done with the smoke smell in the house. It is overpowering and unpleasant. We were lucky the weather was nice, so we stayed outside on the deck. I don't know what we would have done if it was rainy, probably leave. The kitchen appliances are dated, but adequate, just don't open the oven. As it was, we left a day early because we were uncomfortable. I'm so sorry for the bad review, however, I must be honest. Xavier was extremely helpful and kind and perhaps my American expectations high. The setting is lovely.

Owner's Response: Je déconseille de louer à ces locataires qui ont annoncé leur arrivée vers 15 heures, puis 16, et qui finalement son arrivés après 19 heures. Il ont pareillement annoncé leur départ le matin à une heure précise, avant de nous proposer de partir sans attendre notre arrivée. Ils sont partis un jour plus tôt sans explication. Je crois comprendre que c'est une odeur de fumée qui les a gênés, je pense que ces américains ne sont pas habitués aux maisons anciennes (la cheminée est du 18ème... et il est possible selon le temps -notamment s'il fait chaud et lourd- que quelques odeurs descendent du conduit). Cependant, la maison est propre et parfaitement nettoyée après chaque passage, même si tout n'est pas neuf. Dommage pour eux que ce petit désagrément leur ait gâché un séjour dont ils auraient pu apprécier tout le charme. Je leur conseillerai de séjourner dans un hôtel de chaîne la prochaine fois, agrémenté d'un délicieux parfum de synthèse.

Disappointing!

  • 1 of 5

We stayed here for 4 weeks and were disappointed with a number of things. Let me say from the outset though, that the cottage is in a great location. It's quiet, and very close to Villandry. We love walking and there were plenty of places to do this. Be aware that the cottage is on the river side of the levee, which offers great views, but you run the risk of being forced to evacuate if the river rises as it did when we were there. Luckily, we were leaving on the day we were told we had to evacuate. We found the interior of the main part of the house smelt very badly of chimney smoke. So much so that any clothes left in those rooms took on the smoke smell. We found the house not very clean. I spent a day cleaning when I arrived, especially the bathrooms. The linen supplied was threadbare, mismatching and very old. We had difficulty getting linen for our bed delivered. It was 5 days before we had a bottom sheet that fitted the bed. What we were originally give was more like a mattress protector material. Very rough! The tea towels in the kitchen were dirty and had insects squashed on them. I bought my own. I had to clean all the shelves in the wardrobes before we could put any clothes on them. Very disappointing!

Owner's Response: Answer to our guests : I read yesterday the good words of your wife (I suppose) on the website. She must be shamed to have been so unfair and so unfriendly. We have welcomed a lot of people, half strangers from all europe, south and north, and russians, canadians, israeliens, even very cute australians 2 years ago, but nobody tells the house was dirty. Evelyne was chocked by the the rudeness of Lorraine words. And how to be so stupid to think that forgotten dirty tea towels could be for you !!!! I kwow you have been unlucky (wifi, electricity, badest spring for 50 years...) but it was not our fault, neither the stress due to the wedding, or your ignorance of foreign languages. You have also be lucky to enjoy our new room ( sorry if it's not your taste) and to welcome 8 people and pay for 6. Nothing is perfect but we always try to do the best, even for you to resolve the wifi problem, to bring you other bedlinen to try to respond to Lorraine caprice. Perhaps there was some dust on the wardrobe because of the recent works, but if you had tell us, the problem would be resolved by ourselves. We have learn the evacuation the day you leave (on the evening the Gendarmes passed) but after explain them that our house were without danger because it's high, and along the Loire, not along the Cher who risqued to extend down the other side of the levée, we stay all the week-end. And I want to tell you that in case of evacuation, it would be a duty for us to welcome you in our "art déco" house in Tours and to prepare a good french diner for you. So the next time try to find a best home for you. And try to be more respectful. Xavier and "La Fillonnerie J'ai été choqué par cette appréciation qui est la seule qui soit négative. Nous veillons à la propreté et cette personne ne nous a rien signalé sauf que le drap du dessous ne lui convenait pas... Elle insiste d'ailleurs sur des points de détail mais je ne peux pas croire qu'elle ait pu passer du temps en arrivant pour faire le ménage. Si c'était le cas elle nous l'aurait dit et la dame qui assure l'accueil serait passée pour y remédier. En réalité nous avons eu un très mauvais contact avec elle à la suite d'un dysfonctionnement du wifi que nous avons résolu le week-end de l'ascension en changeant la box après de nombreux contacts avec Orange. Nous avons tout fait pour la satisfaire, y compris en changeant le fameux drap qui lui donnait chaud... Personne ne nous a signalé un problème de propreté

Très satisfaits

  • 4 of 5

Notre séjour en famille dans ce gite s'est très bien passé. Il est très bien équipé et on s'y sent bien. La pièce à vivre est très agréable, avec la vue loire et la cheminée. Il est par ailleurs bien situé pour rayonner tout autour. A noter que l'escalier d'accès aux chambres est assez raide, et donc pas simple pour des enfants en bas âge.

Repos et sérénité.

  • 5 of 5

Merveilleux endroit pour se ressourcer, calme et détente.

Gite spacieux et très bien aménagé, il ne manque rien.

Bonus pour les passionnés de photos animalières, faune généreuse à quelques pas du gite. Donc n'oubliez pas les jumelles et téléobjectifs.

Ressourcement en pleine nature

  • 5 of 5

C'est dans un environnement exceptionnel que nous avons passé un week-end de calme et de repos. La proximité du fleuve, le ballet des oiseaux et le passage furtif de chevreuils nous ont ravis. La simplicité de la maison alliée a son très bon niveau de confort et à la qualité de l'accueil de Evelyne ont finis de nous combler. Attachés au Val de Loire : lieu d'exception à préserver ! nous vous remercions de nous en faire profiter.

Old house, bright and modern interieur, brethless view to river Loire

  • 4 of 5

The location is very quiet. Although it is an old buidling the interieur is quite modern and bright. The terrace has a breath taking view to the river Loire. I would have expected a bit more comfortable seats for the terrace. Unfortunately the barbecue not usable because it was completely mankey (dirty). As a conclusion I can recommend the location as a spot to relax.
