Exceptional stay at the beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon stay at Selma's cottage. The entire stay Selma was an outstanding, personal, personable concierge. Selma made reservations for us (which helped because neither of us speak French!) and helped us rent Vespa scooters, the highlight of our trip! Not only was the cottage impeccably clean and tastefully decorated, it was more than enough space for two. I would recommend this cottage stay to anyone! It was truly exquisite. We do not have enough good things to say about the service, spa, sights, and French cuisine!

Thank you for a truly romantic and adventurous getaway, Selma. We hope to see you again one day!

Beauté et confort dans un écrin de nature

  • 5 of 5

Les gîtes de la Batelière sont idéalement placés pour profiter de la nature préservée en bord de Loire ainsi que des nombreux châteaux qui l'environnent. Les logements ont gardé tout leur cachet, en même temps qu'ils proposent un confort irréprochable. Nous gardons donc un souvenir tout particulier de nos vacances.

rustikales Haus mit origineller Raumaufteilung und tollem Blick auf die Loire

  • 4 of 5

Sehr zu empfehlen für Menschen, die des französischen nicht mächtig sind, da die Vermieterin excellent englisch spricht.

Sie ist sehr hilfsbereit und beantwortet jede Frage, die mit der Gegend und dem Aufenthalt zu tun hat.

Die Ausstattung ist in Ordnung - einzig der Minifernseher ist gewöhnungsbedürftig.

Besonders gefallen hat uns, dass es ein zweites Haus gibt, in dem ein weiteres Doppelbett steht, sodass man schlafens-

mäßig unabhängig von einander ist (bei Kindern wichtig) und ein 2.Sanitärbereich zur Verfügung steht.

Die nächste Einkaufsmöglichkeit befindet sich im 2,5 Km entfernten Langeais - dort gibt es alles zu kaufen und sonntags

einen schönen, großen Markt.

Für Fahrradfaher ist das Loiretal ein Eldorado, es gibt außer dem Loire-Radweg viele weitere Möglichkeiten Touren zu

unternehmen, die Ausschilderung ist im allgemeinen gut. Und alle Schlösser der Gegend sind per Fahrrad gut zu


Wir würden jederzeit nochmals nach Chapelle aux Naux fahren.
