Emmanuel was very welcoming, despite our rudimentary (gcse) French! The property is as pictured but all the more stunning in real life. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. The kitchen was well equipped with pots and pans as well as cleaning products, all the appliances were in good order and easy to use. The bottle of local wine was also much appreciated after a long drive! Bedrooms are spacious with good, clean linens and towels. The kids loved their room which has an array of books and games to keep them amused. On that note, there is a lovely big garden which we were left to our own devices in, same for the pool. Since the photos- when we booked- were taken, they have installed a telescopic cover, which for anyone with safety concerns is an absolute godsend (take it from the mum of mischievous 3 year old twins!). Being off the beaten track, traffic is also minimal, bar the odd tractor... The weather was varied due to the time of year but after a couple of days of 36+ temperatures and playing in the pool, we were glad for some cooler weather. If so, the Chinon fortress is a must see (lots and lots of steps though as a warning to those with weak knees!) The boys loved the cannons and the giant crossbow and the views are fantastic. Also the market in Chinon is on the Thursday morning, with lovely stalls selling all sorts of beautiful produce, soft fruits, artichokes, squashes as well as charcuterie, cheeses, salamis and day-to-day items - an amazing array. There's also a farm shop situated rather randomly on the road into Chinon with lovely local produce including cheeses, veg, honey etc. I have only one small word of caution, it is a rural location so there are naturally a lot of insects including bees and wasps - I do have an allergy to bee stings so I am more attuned to this than most! All in all though, a gorgeous, private, tranquil setting and a beautifully renovated house. Merci beaucoup pour notre sejour! And don't miss the star gazing!

It was also clean, airy and very well equipped and having use of a pool was a definite bonus. We were greeted by Colin the collie (who we all fell in love with), promptly followed by Clair and Robert. Our hosts were extremely friendly and very knowledgeable of the area and were able to make recommendations re. places to visit. We were, however, quite happy to chill on this holiday and only ventured forth to visit the lake on one day (which is worth a visit, especially with youngsters/teens/young adults). One great recommendation was lunch at Le Ricordeau in Loudun. We had a stunning 4 course lunch for 18 euro and had one of the best meals we have had in a long time (including Michelin star restaurants!). We would definitely recommend a visit to Le Coindries and, if you have time, Le Ricordeau for a special meal. We certainly hope to return to both in the not too distant future.
