Super location and facilities for a family stay

  • 4 of 5

This is a super get-away for a family break. The pool, table tennis table, petaniques court, table football, swings, tree house, toys and slide make for perfect distractions for little ones (meaning adults are happy too)! Plus, there are the goats, chickens, rabbits and ducks which you can go and see (and feed) at any time. The gardens are exquisitely kept and manicured, and the pool clean (it was also cleaned for us a couple of time while we were there which was a nice touch).

The gite can accommodate 9 guests given the size of the rooms and extra beds. For anyone travelling with elderly relatives, the double bedroom on the ground floor and bathroom make access very easy.

The location is great; rural but very close to the lovely town of Loches and a relatively short drive to a number of nearby attractions such as the numerous Chateaux in the region. The gift of a lovely cake was a very personal and appreciated gesture on our second evening.

The beds are very comfortable; as is the rest of the gite. There's a dishwasher and a washing machine which is situated in the utility room - which showcases a wonderful old bread oven; unused but testament to the history of the property.

Downstairs living room and kitchen is comfortable, (if a little dated) and sadly wifi wasn't working when we were there. Some might say that was a good thing, (maybe not with pre-teens though) :-) However they were the only downsides and I / we would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: hello, it is with great pleasure that we receive this comprehensive view, and we are pleased that your stay went smoothly. unfortunately we could not see us because we were on vacation too, and we regret it. we are very sorry regarding the wifi, it is our parents who accidentally unplugged the Internet housing by fear of the storm ... a shame that you did not report, we would have solved the problem immediately .. . we hope your return went well, and we wish you a good continuation.

Très bonne expérience. Très agréable.

  • 4 of 5

Rien à redire. Très propre et fonctionnel. Maison chauffée à l'arrivée, parfait.

Et très bien équipée pour les jeunes enfants (jeux intérieurs extérieurs et matériel bébé.)

Allez si il faut trouver un petit quelque chose à améliorer c'est un placard à manteaux ou quelques patères proche de la porte d'entrée.

Super séjour trop court

  • 4 of 5

Séjour vraiment sympa dans un gîte très bien équipé à tous points de vue. Propriétaire à notre écoute qui se décarcasse pour que le séjour se déroule dans les meilleures conditions. A recommander.

çà donne vraiment envie de revenir avec les petits-enfants car ce gîte c'est le paradis pour eux !!!
