Séjour très agréable.

  • 4 of 5

La location est aisée à trouver, simple, mais bien installée et bien équipée. Le cadre est agréable, l'accueil vigilant par une voisine très attentionnée. Nous étions tous les deux ravis de ce séjour.

Une suggestions pour céder au modernisme : une liaison WiFi.

A recommander pour un couple.

Quant à la Touraine, quelle belle région !

Séjour troglodyte St Etienne de Chigny

  • 4 of 5

Le site du gite est très bien situé en dehors de la route nationale avec une bonne orientation et présente un cadre de vie agréable et calme avec des équipements complets, des pièces de bonnes dimensions toutefois le couchage des lits individuels demande une sérieuse amélioration, par exemple un équipement de sommiers a lattes.

cependant les conditions climatiques nous ont interdits d'apprécier le salon de jardin.

La location était propre a notre arrivée et nous conseillerions ce site a nos amis et parents; les différents commerces se situent a environ 5 kms du gite

Notre note d'appréciation est de 17/20

SUPERBE MAISON

Maison qui nous a conquis par son originalité, son confort et sa tranquillité.

Vous avez dit "troglo"? ...dites.

  • 5 of 5

Location bien sympathique. Faire l'expérience d'une semaine en troglo. Moi j'ai dormi comme un loir. Pas de bruit et il se dégage de ce gite une certaine sérénité. Bien agencé et pourvu du confort simple mais complet que l'on attend d'une location. Cour fermée sécurisante. Je recommande chaleureusement. Pour visiter un maximum de châteaux c'est un point stratégique.

Une location originale et agréable

  • 5 of 5

En séjour en couple, nous avons apprécié le gîte qui est tout à fait conforme à la description indiquée sur le site.

Le troglodyte qui s'affirme dans la remise est pittoresque. La cour fermée, ensoleillée et fleurie prolonge l'espace de vie.

La situation géographique du gîte est propice à la découverte des châteaux et du patrimoine de Touraine, gastronomie, vins, nature...

Nous conseillons cette location aux couples avec enfants et aux seniors amoureux de patrimoine.

Location identique à l'annonce, pas de surprise, propre, vaisselles et accessoires en nombre suffisant, accueil chaleureux, très bonne situation géographique, calme, bref nous sommes ravis de cette semaine ; le petit moins (pour la flemmarde que je suis: pas de lave-vaisselle !) mais ceci est un détail.

Owner's Response: Merci beaucoup. Pour le lave-vaisselle, nous y pensons, mais la cuisine est petite, difficile de trouver des dimensions adéquates. Cordialement
