They responded quickly to our emails and were very helpful (Jim's own website is great). The house is as described; spacious, tastefully decorated, well-equipped: in short the perfect holiday home. The balcony is a fantastic place to relax and the garden had lots of seating and dining options - and fresh veg to pick! We stayed with our two children (11 & 9) and we all loved it- we even thought about buying a house in the village ourselves. The house is 4-5 minutes walk to the centre of the village, which has a bakery, small grocer's, cafes and restaurants, a superb tourist office and a castle. Our best find was the village's open air pool - under a Euro for a full day! There is so much to do in the area: Loches, Amboise, the chateaux, Futuroscope, markets, bike rides, canoeing, safari parks - and lots more that we didn't have time for - in short something for everyone! The weather was gorgeous and we had a wonderful stay. We will definitely return to the Loire and Les Balcons will certainly be where we choose to stay. Thanks Jim and Pauline for a brilliant stay.

The house is in a lovely setting - near enough to the town for essential provisions but remote enough so you feel like you are in your own hidden corner of the countryside. Benedicte was very helpful and friendly and we were given eggs and fresh courgettes from the farm :) Inside, the house is furnished very comfortably with the downstairs being particularly cool and inviting. The bedrooms all have lovely countryside views and enough space for everyone. It got rather hot at night but that's to be expected! Outside, we made very good use of the pool and the ping pong table and ate most of our meals on the covered veranda. We enjoyed the peace and quiet so much that we hardly ventured out at all until the end of the holiday. For a trip out, Futuroscope was quite a lot of fun but the highlight was the evening meal in La Cristal restaurant there - truly spectacular and completely unexpected in a theme park.... I would certainly recommend the gite to anyone looking to relax in the beautiful French countryside - we managed to keep two twelve year olds happy almost entirely without leaving the vicinity so that should say it all!!
