Nice cottage with a few surprises
We enjoyed our stay here. The cottage is very clean and neat, and our hosts left us a frig full of food, which was very handy. The location is very close to Chenonceau, and there are nice restaurants and a couple of good patisseries in easy walking distance in this charming little town. Not only is there a washer, there’s even a dryer AND a dishwasher, plus two full baths! If you are driving, it’s easier to make a left turn into the gate, so I would drive up the hill until I found a place to turn around. The surprises are: the house is right on the main road to Blois, which has heavy traffic during the day but is much quieter at night. The pool is an above-ground pool about the size of a hot tub. And if you’re tall, be prepared to duck when upstairs to avoid the low doorways and beams, especially in the front bath. Finally, the third bedroom is really just a small landing with a bed and a folding screen for privacy. But as long as you don’t mind the surprises, it’s a great little place.
Thank you for your, very kind, positive comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in Montrichard and it is good that you noted other things that guests might like to know.
Our entry on 'HomeAway' mentions that we are near the road and we feel this is compensated by our proximity to the Town and all it offers.
The pool is described as a 'dipping pool' and in summer the temperature can reach 40 centigrade in our garden and the pool provides a welcome break from the heat.
The bed on the landing in 'La Maison' is for use by a child when a larger family stays. The third bedroom is in the adjoining self contained cottage which has a bedroom with a king size bed, bathroom, living room and a kitchen.
Comfortable, homey and clean
We enjoyed our stay and especially appreciated the well-stocked refrigerator we found upon arrival. The location is convenient, but exiting the narrow gate can be tricky. The caretaker was very helpful.
Comfortable and spacious
We were 4 adults and a baby. We liked being within easy walking distance of the bakeries, and other shops.Very convenient as with the baby we tended to eat at the house rather than dining out, tho the restaurants in Montrichard looked pretty popular. The beach on the banks of the Cher is a bonus and family friendly. The house is comfortably furnished , really well equipped and spacious for 4 people. and an interesting and characterful restoration. A slight blip with a docking station was sorted out immediately. The housekeeper is local and English. .Also very well located for the Chateaux-we visited 10-- and walking and sightseeing.Weather was hot and sunny and the splash pool was refreshing and not small.
