“Ticks all the boxes”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

A wonderful spot to base a holiday..a sanctuary to return to after visiting the many sites the area has to offer. Howard,the affable host is close by to offer assistance and advice,including the best selection of eggs you are likely to find anywhere. What becomes obvious,the longer you stay,is how beautifully positioned the bite is for excursions,short or long. The bite is extremely comfortable and we enjoyed cooking and feasting on the lovely local produce. The morning visit from the farm cat, the flowers and the birds created a memorable atmosphere.

“Home from home”
Reviewed 14 February 2014 for a stay in August 2013

On arriving to "La huttiere", we were all excited at the local very rural location which was great, we was greeted by Howard and a lovely welcome gift basket which had all what we needed to get started. Although very quiet and idylic the local shops were only a 5 or so minutes drive which was perfect. Also in the local village was a few restaurants which were excellent.
The children loved it and we all had a fantastic holiday - nothing was too much trouble for our host who made our stay just perfect.
Will definately be coming back!

“A Sunflower Haven”
Reviewed 25 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Arriving at La Huttiere we were greeted by Howard our host and a big basket of "welcome goodies". Returning from the nearby town of Le Lude for groceries Howard appeared on our doorstep with a bowl of fresh laid chicken eggs and 2 large duck eggs. It was our first experience with duck eggs which we discovered have 3 times the protein of chicken eggs and were delicious. The gite is located in the center of farm country so as we explored the area we were amazed by the fields of sunflowers which are harvested for sunflower oil. The gite itself had everything we needed including an umbrella clothesline in the back yard. We delighted in hanging our wash out in the morning and burying our noses in the fresh smelling clothes when we brought them in at night.
Our best value lunch was enjoyed in Chigne which is 5 kms. from the gite. The locals in the restaurant like to stare but once we spoke French to them they were welcoming and happy to show us how the buffet worked. The entrecote steak meal was complete with a buffet salad, a full bottle of wine on our table and dessert for 22 Euros for the two of us!
We enjoyed the market in Le Lude but although we tried to see the castle there three times it was never open nor was the tourist center. We found Le Chambord to be the most amazing castle in France and was an easy day trip from the gite.
Our 5 days at La Huttiere were relaxing, filled with fresh air and sunshine which was just what we needed at that stage of our 6 week vacation in Europe.
