“Perfect Holiday... Perfect Location... Perfect Hosts...”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

An outstanding holiday! The gite and its surrounding grounds including swimming pool, games areas, orchards, outdoor eating areas, relaxation places and courtyard are beautiful. Set in stunning, rural countryside, it is a fabulous location for walks and bike rides (bikes included in the price of the gite) and is well positioned for visits to local towns with wonderful markets, beautiful chateaux, vine-yards and many more places of historic interest. The gite very comfortably accommodates 6 adults - it is spacious, extremely well equipped, designed and decorated in a simple yet stylish manner. All 3 bedrooms are en-suite, there is large kitchen and dining space and separate living area. It has 2 outdoor eating places with a BBQ, a small front patio overlooking the courtyard and a grassy sunbathing area with hammock. Other amenities include dishwasher, washing machine and free wifi. The hosts (Kath and Roger) and their pets - an Airedale terrier with a wonderful personality, a quirky cat, chickens, sheep and a goat - could not be more organised, friendly and helpful. They offer excellent advice on day trips, cycle routes (now available on mapmyroute app) and walks. They provide a lovely additional service of a welcome basket of local food and drink. We are already planning our next visit to La Belardiere and would recommend this as a holiday location without hesitation!

“Le Potager ticks all the boxes!”
Reviewed 2 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We were 2 adult couples who spent a week (not long enough) thoroughly enjoying the tranquility of this superbly renovated original farm barn.
The property - in addition to swimming pool, bicycles etc is replete with hens, goats, sheep and a very friendly Airedale who "adopted" us for the duration.
Our hosts, Kath & Roger could not have been more welcoming & offered plenty of suggestions for day trips, restaurants etc. A vehicle is needed however as local shopping is a few kms away.
We had many a laugh with our hosts over twilight drinks and really were very sorry to leave this special place in the Loire Valley.

“Fantastic property, location and setting”
Reviewed 15 November 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We stayed in the smaller gite for our stay with 4 adults and 2 children. The gite is of the highest standard with excellent en suite bathrooms for all 3 rooms. We really liked the outdoor area and particularly the beautiful pool. It is a tranquil, peaceful and very traditional area of France with all the usual - markets, boulangeries, fresh seafood etc. The hosts Roger and Kath are fantastic and always available with any information you require. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.
