Charming, unique home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our three daughters spent a wonderful four nights in this sweet, amazing house. The children were enthralled by the character of the place, it truly seemed like a fairytale location. The top bedroom with it's high-beamed ceiling, charming oval window, and sweet hanging lanterns will always be something the girls remember. The beds and linens were extremely comfortable and very nice quality. The style is elegant and subdued. There are bathrooms on both levels where the bedrooms are.

Marie-Noelle is the most gracious host ever! She greeted us warmly and gave us both a great tour of the expansive property but also many suggestions on local attractions. I would happily spend more time at her home!

The location is great for visiting the chateau and other local sites. We were about 25 minutes away from several chateau. The site is part of a large estate but feels very private.

We had problems or issues at all - only that we didn't have another two weeks to spend truly relaxing at this lovely home!!

Amazing time

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderfull and the owner (very kind and generous) gave us all the necessary support to make our stay unforgetable. My family and I loved the rich history of the place. Comfortable beds and all the necessary structure for an independent stay. We faced a initial problem with the hot water, promptly solved by the onwer. We will definitevely return and suggest to all of our friends.

We always have pleasure sharing our ideas with our guests, suggesting them about the best to do in Loire Valley according time they spend at home, and helping them organizing their stay! We will have great pleasure to welcome you at home again, as well as your friends. Best wishes for 2016!

A Fairytale Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, as well as our two children spent two weeks at this guest house and had a wonderful time. The home is unusual but enjoyable, with the upper floors something out of a fairytale. The children were enthralled from the moment they arrived. We spent our time travelling to the wonderful Chateaux in the area, and enjoying the beautiful countryside, restaurants and vineyards. The hostess went above and beyond to make our stay memorable, and this took it from a good trip to a wonderful trip. I think many would prefer to be in the Chateau itself, but it is wonderful to wake each morning to see the Chateau in the Loire sunshine is a memory we will always treasure.

Fabulous private 'house' on private estate

  • 5 of 5

Four of us (two couples) had a fabulous stay here. The private 'house' you see in the pictures is on a larger property owned by the host. Private but close enough if you need questions answered. Marie-Noelle was a fabulous host and quickly found answers to our trickiest questions. If you are a car nut then Phillipe may even take you out in his grand Daimler.

It is near enough to Tours to be convenient but not too close. The various chateaux in the area are easy day trips.

Great place to stay - but be aware that the bedrooms are up some narrow stairs. No issue to us but could be tricky for less capable people

Wonderful stay in a beautiful part of France!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 10 day stay here with our four young children. The property is absolutely beautiful, with a huge front yard green area for the kids to run and play in, secure fenced woods above on the hill behind the property, and a wonderful large circular drive that the kids had a fantastic time on with scooters provided by Marie-Noelle. Whenever we were home, the kids were outside playing.

The location is excellent, very central and close to four or five of the key chateaus in Loire Valley, with many more smaller attractions close by as well. We drove to Futuroscope one day as well, which the kids absolutely loved (we highly recommend it!), saw Chambord, Chenonchau, Cheverney, Azay-le-Rideau and Villandry, all within 10-45 minutes from the property. It's perfectly situated between Tours and Amboise with easy access to either.

The house is set on three floors, with a large master on the second and a very large neat top floor bedroom with plenty of room for the four kids. There are nice clean bathrooms on each of the bedroom floors. The house is very clean and feels recently renovated, with nice hardwood floors upstairs and plenty of space. The kitchen and living room are on the ground floor.

The river is just minutes away, and down a bit further toward Amboise is a canoe rental facility on the river-shore. The kids had a grand time canoeing from there down to Chenonchau Chateau, about a 90 minute round trip journey on the very easy and slow-moving Cher River for about 50 Euros for two canoes and 6 people. Wonderful river trip for any young kids comfortable around water.

Marie-Noelle was a wonderful owner and took great care of us, dropping off occasional fresh baked breads and cheese and helping us with any questions. The property also has a nice indoor pool that the kids swam in, although not as much as they wanted since we were out exploring the area most days.

Wunderschöner Aufenthalt in Rochecave und Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei Wochen in diesem ganz besonderen Ferienhaus verbracht. Früher Teil eines Weingutes lässt das Haus heute trotz eines modernen Looks seine Vergangenheit durch die zum Teil erhaltenen alten Felswände erahnen. Die geschmackvolle Einrichtung, die sich von Möbel bis zum Geschirr bemerkbar macht, trägt den feinen Unterschrift der Vermieterin, die ihre Liebe für diesen Ort, Tradition und Geschichte authentisch und originell zum Ausdruck bringt. Die Auswahl an Büchern ist für Gäste, die des Französischen mächtig sind, eine echte Bereicherung. Es ist ein perfekter Ort für diejenige, die Eleganz und Einfachheit lieben.

Die Räume sind sehr hell und großzügig, die Küche ist gut ausgerüstet, das Wasser ist sofort warm und die Betten sehr bequem. Der große Garten ist für Kinder ein wahres Paradies, wo sie frei laufen und spielen können. Für uns war das lange Frühstücken im Garten der perfekte Tagesbeginn. Es stehen auch Tischtennis, Fahrräder, sowie ein Swimmingpool zur Verfügung. Eine Auswahl an DVDs – für groß und klein -bietet eine kurzweilige Alternative für den Abend.

Die Lage ist auch ideal für die Erkundung des Loire Tals mit ihren Schlössern, netten Kleinstädten und Dörfern und wilder Natur. Wenn man auch Städte liebt, ist man in Tours gut aufgehoben. Die alten Stadtvierteln, die Kathedrale Saint-Gatien aber auch die netten Cafés und Restaurants um Place Plumereau sowie die Shopping-Möglichkeiten machen Tours sehr attraktiv. Das studentische Flair gibt der Stadt zusätzlich eine sehr frische und lebendige Note. Einzigartig fanden wir die schicken neuen Straßenbahnen, die insbesondere unseren Sohn tiefst fasziniert haben. Les Halles –der zentrale Markt in Tours - war für uns eine besondere Attraktion: Eine großartige Auswahl an hochwertigen Lebensmittel und Verkäufer die die französische Vorliebe für das gute Essen in jedem kleinsten Detail zelebriert haben. Wir vermissen das sehr.

Kanu-Fahrten und Fahrradtouren lassen Loire auf eine andere Art und Weise entdecken, die wir jedem ans Herz legen möchte Die Ufern mit deren wilden Vegetation und die Sandbänken voller Vögeln, die man aus dem Kanu sehr nah beobachten kann, machen solche Ausflüge außergewöhnlich.

Unsere Vermieterin hat uns liebevoll betreut und uns sehr wertvolle Ratschläge gegeben. Sie hatte sofort das Gespür, was für uns interessant wäre.

Rochecave ist ein sehr empfehlungswerter Ort für diejenigen, die Kultur, Natur, Wein und gutes Essen mit französischen Touch lieben.
