This is a very comfrotable property set a few miles outside a very nice little town. This is a rural location surrounded by fields. Beside the owners the nearest buildings are 1/2 kilometer away. The property is comfortable and a well kept space for 2 people with adequate cooking facilities. Manuel our host was attentive to our needs but not intrusive throughout our weeks stay. The property was very clean and tidy and all the appliances worked well. The property is ideally situated for exploring the Loire area, during our stay we visited a least 7 chateaus all within less than 1 hour drive from the location. Loudun in a nice town with two good supermarkets and the shopping centre has some different shops. I would highly recommend this property for anyone wishing to get away from the pressures of modern life and relax in the warm quiet atmoshere of the countryside.
What a find! Spacious and peaceful, a really comfortable home with extensive grounds and vineyards owned by the adjacent chateau to walk around and explore, including a natural spring that the Greenwich Meridian passes through, a spectacular mile long tree lined driveway, fields with sheep and goats, a pond with ducks and geese (and some fishing for carp), sunflowers, and bizarrely what seems to be a Mirage jet on display by the farmhouse! Our children felt like they had their own farm and forest to explore on foot and by bike and just loved it!
The house itself is bigger than in the pictures and has extensive grounds. The 4 bedrooms were all well appointed, with everything brand new, as were bathrooms and kitchen. There were two sitting areas with Freeview TV and super fast Wifi as well. Outside there was plenty of space with table and chairs, sunloungers and Weber BBQ. We loved afternoons drinking a glass of wine in the shade with a vineyard view (they give a couple of bottles of their house wine and you can buy more).
Nearby you have all the famous Loire Valley sights. We visited the Abbey in Fontevraud, Chateau de Breze, the market in Montsoreau on the Loire river, and the Troglodyte caves, all less than 15 mins drive away. We did wine tasting nearby and ate at some great restaurants like Pot de Lapin and Tresor Belges (the latter an easy flat cycle for a family, as were numerous other spots).
We had great weather, but in our one day of rain, nearby CentreParks takes day visitors and the indoor pool and tube rides were a real hit with the kids, as well as 10 pin bowling and a really nice spa for adults :-). Then there is zip lining in Chinon, which we have been to before but didn't get a chance to get to as there was so much else to do!
Knowing this is a new property we wanted to write a review that will do it justice as we really loved it and will definitely come back time and again. A great new find.
Modern interior, yet a classic building and surroundings. Clean, super comfortable (amazing beds and couldn't help but notice it's all John Lewis towels and linen), a very helpful booking lady, as well of lots of info booklets to help us plan our stay.
But above all the sense of peace and tranquility, yet with everything just a few minutes drive or cycle away, in an amazing location, makes this an absolute gem. Our best family holiday in ages :-). Highly recommend.
