We are a family of 4 and stayed at Le Clos de Bel Air from July 2013 for 8 days. The welcome from the owners is warm and friendly and they are extremely knowledgeable on the local area, which came in very handy when planning things to do. The welcome pack was gratefully received as was the pristine condition of the gite which was exceptionally well equipped. Our kids absolutely adored the swings in the garden and the pool. It is a perfect setting if you're thinking of visiting the Loire Valley. The property's situation is great, close to Blois, a bustling town, many of the great Chateaux's, vineyards and places of great beauty. If you feel like taking it easy at the property then Diane and William make you very welcome and are happy to chat although also are not in any way over-bearing. We would definitely recommend this property and its location, we feel it's a hidden gem in what can be a minefield of gites / holiday properties in France. Can't fault this place....perfect, would definitely return!

“Perfect location for the Loire Valley”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Extremely comfortable and clean. Diane and Bill were excellent hosts and were very helpful with plenty of suggestions. Their knowledge of the area was first rate from chateaus to markets, golf courses to dining. Take bikes if you can as the terrain is pretty flat. Blois was a fascinating city full of history. Chateau at Chiverny was close by and well worth a visit as was Chambord.

“Great property and location with friendly owners”

Having arrived after a 10 hour journey we were pleasantly surprised to find Le Clos de Bel Air very clean and well equipped. We were met by Bill and Diane, who were very friendly, they showed us the essentials and then were available throughout our stay for any extra information we needed on the gites or the surrounding area. We managed to fill a week visiting several Chateaux and local towns and never travelled more than about 40 minutes to anywhere making it a great location, also 5 minutes away are several supermarkets in Contres.
Overall I would definitely recommend Le Clos de Bel Air as a holiday home.

“A tick in each of our boxes and everything worked !!”

We ask a few simple questions before we book a gite :

Interesting location for potential visits ?
Decent restaurants for the evenings you just don't fancy cooking ?
Well equiped kitchen for the evenings you do ?
Bathrooms with showers ?
A quiet sunny corner in a garden to read ?
Supportive and knowledgeable hosts ?

Le Clos de Bel Air both matched these and then delivered, as when we arrived everything (yes, everything) worked !

For more details on places to visit and eat please see our comments in the house book

We look forward to returning again
