“Charming”
Reviewed 14 August 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This is our seventh visit to this beautiful gîte and we are returning again for a week in September. I can't rate it highly enough. The owners Gérald and Sarah-Jane are lovely hosts and absolutely nothing is too much for them. Sarah-Jane has a great knowledge of the local area and is always on hand with advice and tips when you are planning a day out. The gité has everything you could possibly need, it's always immaculate and very well equipped - great for self-catering. It's a quiet village location surrounded by vines and fields. There is plenty of walking, cycling, numerous markets and brocantes, pretty villages and towns in the area to visit. We would definitely recommend this gité.

“A cosy little house to stay in, not far from the major towns and sights in the Loire valley”
Reviewed 25 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had a perfect one-week holiday in this tiny, cosy and beautifully decorated house. It is situated in a very peaceful village, within easy reach of all beautiful towns and places to visit in the Loire valley. Though our main aim was to have a quiet rest, we also managed to visit the Montreuil Bellay with its fantastic castle, Montsoreau, Candes Saint Martin and the other pittoresque villages on the side of the Vienne river, as well as Angers, Chinon, and Amboise with its lovely Clos Lucé castle and pleasant gardens, and the majestic Chenonceau castle nearby. We enjoyed talking to the very pleasant owners who live in the house nearby, but have arranged the little house and the terrace in such a way so that it provided full privacy for the guests as well. Sarah-Jane, thank you sincerely for the hospitality, for the easter eggs. And for the blanket - it was not needed as we have found the house warm enough, but it was a little gesture qui nous a fait chaud au coeur! I hope we could come again!

“Peaceful and relaxing time”
Reviewed 14 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have stayed in this lovely gite before it remains on our list of favourite places to stay in the Loire. The gite is very well equipped, clean and tidy and in a lovely peaceful location surrounded by fields and vines, but not too far from anything that the Loire has to offer in terms of attractions. The owners Sara-Jane and Gerald are wonderful hosts and they can be relied on to point you in the right direction if you are not familiar with the area and need some ideas on what do or where to eat. Highly recommended.

“We love this place.”
Reviewed 2 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have visited this gité six times now and will return again next year. I can't rate it high enough. The owners Gérald and Sarah-Jane are lovely hosts and absolutely nothing is too much for them. They are a lovely Anglo/French family with two great kids and a gorgeous cat. The gité has everything you could possibly need, it's always immaculate and very well equipped - great for self-catering. It's a quiet village location surrounded by vines and fields. There is plenty of walking, cycling, numerous markets and brocants, pretty villages and towns in the area to visit. We would definitely recommend this gité.
