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.

It was brilliant having a dishwasher so we didn't have to spend our holiday washing up! The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to be able to cook a nice meal if you don't want to go out to eat. The pool is lovely and a great way to relax after a day of sight seeing or reading. We played a little badminton. There is a table tennis table there along with other games. Angela and Derek are always on hand should you need them. This part of France has everything from Chateau to vine yards. Great county parks, lovely scenery and peace and quiet. Although it was late September the weather was fantastic and still reaching the high 20's. We would really recommend staying with Angela and Derek if you want a peaceful hassle free holiday in a lovely part of France.

The setting in beautiful countryside was wonderful, in particular we enjoyed visiting the beach and swimming area at the river to the south of Descartes. The set up and facilities were ideal for us and our children with plenty of safe space to play, nearby paths and woods to explore and of course the pool! A great place for relaxing breaks, particularly for larger groups.
