Lovely Loire Gite

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a week in August with my young family and my inlaws. The Gite is in the grounds of private chateau. It was a very nice pool (with shallow end) and well kept tennis court. The Gite is on the edge of the grounds and so it feels private. The estate itself is very quite and peaceful, The small town of Blere is close by which has a good butcher, a couple of good bakers as well as small and large supermarkets. We found it to be a good base to explore the Chateauxs of Loire (Loche, Amboise and Chenonceau all within 30 minutes) and Tours is not that far either! The estate also produces its own very drinkable wine and the owners are happy to provide tastings and are very informative about the local viticulture. We would highly recommend this Gite.
