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 first visit last year we were was so surprised when opened the gates to find a market outside. This year it was a really busy antiques market, didn't know it was there from inside at all. The house is very cosy in the winter and the addition of the central heating this year made it even better. The house is well equipped with almost everything you could need. The garden is a sun trap even in the autumn/winter. Plenty of good restaurants within walking distance all with good English. The owner Sheelagh is very obliging, we took friends with us for a few days this year for the first time, she assured that everything was ready for them also. There is always someone on hand to help not that we have needed it but you had that reassurance you would get help and fairly quickly if necessary. I would recommend this property to you.

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.
