This very carefully and meticulously refurbished farm house is situated on a hill side with wonderful views over the Loire gorge below. It has excellent , safe facilities for families with young children- a heated swimming pool , a trampoline , swings - all invaluable in tiring out the little fiends before bedtime! This is real sparsely inhabited countryside so do not look for quaint villages with boulangeries or auberges. The Michelin map has no 'places of special interest 'at all in this area and the nearest larger supermarket and boulangerie ( excellent bread and croissants )and a smart little family restaurant are all together, but 20 km away. A smaller but good Intermarche is more local, so it is advisable to do a big shop and eat at home admiring the view from the terrace. The Loire gorge is steep and not for canoeing or swimming nor are there foot paths for family walks , but the stunning views across the hills and the valley facing north, giving sunshine all day, make for a most relaxing and family bonding holiday stay.
Great people - Helene and "Madile", wonderful Gite - Rural, quiet, clean and your very own Donkey! Highly recommended. Both girls extremely helpful, friendly and nothing too much trouble. Would certainly return.
