5 of 5 stars Reviewed 27 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

I can't wait to go back to this charming gite! The decor is stunning - beautiful antiques and original art. My husband and I spent our days exploring the region and our evenings enjoying this lovely retreat. It's so well placed for visiting chateaux and vineyards. And while we discovered some nice restaurants, our favorite evenings were spent cooking in the well-equipped kitchen. We slept like logs in the king-sized bed and the shower was even better than my shower at home!

Pamela and her husband could not have provided a more charming welcome. They are artists, and you will fall in love with Pamela's work which graces this little house. We plan to come back when the garden will be in full bloom.

« Amelia » is indeed an artist’s creation. Sculptures dangle from the cathedral ceiling and art graces the walls. This is an artistic haven of comfort, nestled in a charming village. The house is perfectly equipped down to every detail. The kitchen is sunny, a real cook’s delight and looks out onto a private courtyard. High quality sheets and excellent bedding, not to mention the calm that reigns in the village makes sleeping a pleasure. The village itself is untouristy and authentic, within 15 minutes of a number of stunning Châteaux. In fact, Pontlevoy is perfectly located, and we’ve cancelled our next leg of the journey to stay settled in this welcoming little village. There is everything within walking distance… fabulous boulangerie, salon de Thé, post office, pharmacy, excellent restaurant. We will definately return to Pontlevoy and to stay in this wonderful Gite. more
