The location is perfect, just a quick walk to the bakery, shop and entrance to the Abbey. The property is furbished to a very high standard and makes for a comfortable stay in a beautiful village and not far from all the other Chateaux and Vineyards. There is plenty of kitchen equipment and it was lovely to have a full oven, toaster, kettle, etc.
We found that you can buy an annual pass to the Abbey for just 14Euros which seemed to make more sense that a single entry at 11 Euros, and we enjoyed many walks around the Abbey and took our time to see all the various areas. There is parking just a few steps from the apartment and was easy to park there but we were there in early Oct and are led to understand that it gets busy in July/Aug..... All in all a great place to stay.
Ideally located just a short walk from Montsoreau centre, this is a lovely property in a beautiful location. Its quirky layout takes a little getting used to at first (garden and parking at top, exit to village at bottom of the the three storeys), but this adds to the charm. The house is stylishly appointed and well-equipped. The owner, Luc, gave us a friendly welcome and does not hesitate to respond quickly to any questions.
We didn't use the courtyard at ground level for breakfasts, as others have commented, because the temperature was a little too cool in the mornings at this time of year (mid to late September), but the garden at the top level was ideal for late afternoon snoozes in the sunshine once the days had warmed up (which they did - we enjoyed sunny days with temperatures up to 30C during our stay!).
With a little manoeuvring in the narrow street outside, we managed to park in the courtyard on a few days, and this makes it easier to load and unload the car.
A very pleasant and relaxing stay. Thank you Luc.
