    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    This cottage offers a quiet away from it all holiday for two in an excellent location for visiting the historic Loire Valley chateaux (we are 4 minutes drive from Chenonceau)and vineyards; great restaurants within 5-10 minutes drive.

The living room has a French window overlooking its own private patio, comfortable armchairs and table and chairs, TV and video, radio-cassette player. There is a well fitted kitchen with washing machine, dish washer, fridge-freezer, SMEG electric oven and ceramic hob and microw... more

Such a beautiful cottage located in a wonderful area of France. Surroundings were peaceful and just what we were looking for. But I cannot give a recommendation as there were 2 issues that were very disappointing. The internet was atrocious. No signal inside the Barn, constant drop outs when sitting outside the other cottages. The owners sent tourist links to... more

The mattress and bedding were new at Easter this year. The internet can... more

Quaint cottage in good location but it needs a lot of work before I would recommend it for the following reasons: Internet access is poor - We had to sit outside one of the other cottages to access the Internet and this was not appreciated by those staying there. It was cold and therefore our access was very limited. Only... more

Management response:

Thank you for your review, we always take customer comments seriously and have taken your comments on board. We sent our cleaner round immediately to make sure the 'cleaning' issues are resolved. Internet access should be ok as we'd invested a lot into making that a good feature. So, again we'll look into what we can do to help the... more
