Charming but needs updating

  • 3 of 5

We had a nice week's stay at this house. It was very clean and authentic and Marie Noelle is very friendly and helpful with lots of tips of what to see and do in the area. The architecture of the property meant it felt genuinely French and it really felt special to be in the peaceful grounds of the chateau with stunning views.

The property was extremely clean but did not have the feel of recent renovation; for example, no lid on the toilet seat which was held on with string. Potential renters should know that the bathrooms are both accessed via bedrooms which means that guests in the main double bedroom do not have free access to either of the bathrooms - and the third toilet is outside. This is fine with young children but not ideal with teens or other adults.

The pool is a good size and our teenagers enjoyed a good splash in it but it wasn't that well maintained.

We had some super days out cycling but always had to put our bikes on the car and travel to the routes as there is no cycle path nearby.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice words about our property. Sorry for the toilet seat broken by children of our previous guests: special size, so it was available with some delay and of course now repaired ! I forgot to warn you about this detail. You can appréciate 2 bathrooms in the house: second floor = one large bedroom + its bathroom, and first floor: one large bedroom and a smaller one + one bathroom. In addition a toilet outside, very convenient when the family is outside or at the swimmingpool. An hotel would have offered you one bathroom for each bedroom... Our house is not the standard hotel bedroom + standard bathroom. Different charm and environment indeed, and different choice. Most of our guests profit from their bikes in the parks of Loire Valley chateaux they visit: indeed, the cycling paths are 2 miles far from home, very close and appréciated, as explained by several of them in their appraisal. And they are so happy also to use the clean, large and heated swimmingpool after the visits, even if, from time to time a spider comes and say Hello !!! Best ! Marie-Noëlle

De superbes vacances en famille

  • 5 of 5

Location idéalement située au cœur de la région des châteaux de la Loire où nous avons passé deux semaines formidables avec nos 3 enfants de 4, 8 et 9 ans.

Gîte authentique, bien équipé et superbement rénové dans une très belle propriété entièrement sécurisée avec un joli parc arboré.

Nos enfants se sont régalés de la piscine couverte et du trampoline.

Accueil impeccable par les propriétaires qui nous ont gentillement conseillés pour les sorties sur Tours et sa région.

La location est idéalement située pour les départs vers les itinéraires cyclables ou pour visiter les caves de Vouvray et environs.

Familiäres Ambiente

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind sehr freundlich empfangen und zuvorkommend betreut worden. Haus und Ausstattung stimmen mit den Angaben über-

ein. Mit dem Rad sind einige Schlösser gut zu erreichen (20-30km)

Der Rest besuchten wir per Auto. Sehr zufrieden und happy!

Le bonheur !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons eu l'immense plaisir de séjourner à Rochecave lors de nos dernières vacances estivales. Que de bons mots à formuler à l'égard des hôtes et de leur magnifique propriété. Tout était impeccable durant toute la durée de nos vacances.

Le domaine est avantageusement situé au beau milieu de la belle région de la Loire avec un accès facile et rapide aux Châteaux et autres merveilles de l'endroit !

Les ados ont été ravis de la piscine, de leur coin privé à l'intérieur de la maison, et de l'espace extérieur pour jouer et se promener dans la nature à même le domaine.

La maison était pourvue de tout le matériel nécessaire à un séjour confortable.

Et que dire de nos hôtes ! Ils ont été accueillants mais discrets, et toujours prêts à nous faire découvrir leur coin de pays et leurs bonnes adresses.

Nous recommandons avec plaisir et sans hésitation cette propriété !

Superbe séjour près des châteaux de la Loire

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans cette superbe maison entièrement rénovée avec goût. Les propriétaires sont charmants et très prévenants.

La maison est idéalement située, proche des châteaux de la Loire (Chenonceau, Azay-le-Rideau, Villandry...) et proche de Tours pour le shopping.

Nous recommandons fortement cette location.

Et encore un grand merci aux propriétaires pour leur très bon accueil.
