If you have transport this is one the best and relaxing stays I have had in a long time. Karen and Craig were very hospitable and couldn't do enough for us yet were able to leave us to our own devices. It was perfect for us to unwind. The cottage is adorable and has everything you need for a few days stay, even longer if you want.

Yes, you do need a car to stay here--or be an avid bicycler (bikes can be rented easily and inexpensively)--as we're out in the countryside.

That's what makes it so peaceful here!

Big sky, birds galore, wildlife and a sweet stone cottage to return to when you're ready to rest.

I am glad so many of our guests have such a relaxing stay!

I guess that's why they keep retuning....

Many thanks,
Karen & Craig.

We always look forward to Joan and Bruce's visits, because after all of these years, we feel like we are welcoming old friends "home".

Each year we do something new to the cottage to improve our returning and new visitor's stays.

This year they are new a mattress and pillows.

I guess it works.....

Hoping the next visit is sooner rather than later!

Karen & Craig.

“Perfection...”
Reviewed 8 December 2013 for a stay in October 2013

A piece of heaven…
What can we say but Awesome!! Karen Kenady & Craig Cantor are the perfect hosts. We loved there beautiful cottage near a quaint little town called Pontlevoy. It was just far enough away to provide the perfect getaway, yet close to some of the most beautiful Chateaus in the Loire Valley. Karen’s recommendations were all spot on, local farmers markets, restaurants, and of course Chateaus in the valley. We really enjoyed all the special touches, homegrown tomatoes, fresh cream, homemade jam and a variety of croissants. The kitchen is perfect and has all we needed to prepare a meal.

We loved Chateau Chenonceaux! There were beautiful flower arrangements throughout the Chateau. A second favorite was Chateau de Chambord. Karen made dinner reservations at Auberge de L’Cole for our Anniversary. What a charming restaurant, amazing food and service. The only disappointment was our time was too short. I hope our next visit we will be able to enjoy the pool and some of the bike trails in the area.
Thank you, Karen and Craig

Well--thank you, Diane and Mark!!!!!

What lovely words to express your time here.

.. And, boy didn't we book "the honeymoon" well in advance?

Wish the weather could have been better for the cycling you hoped to do, but Mother Nature is what she is.....

Both Craig and I were so happy to finally meet you and have you here!

Let's just hope that the next visit,, as you say, is longer for exploring other parts of the Loire, near to "La Barauderie".

With warm regards and best wishes for a Happy New Year,
Karen & Craig.

Our "personal touch" seems to be: think of where we want to stay and then stay out-of-the-way until approached. When we go on vacation, we like to left to our own "devices" unless we need something or someone, so that's what we do here.

We let our guests know that we are always available, but also that the cottage is theirs.

Much more comfortable and homey that way, we think.

And, we live the fairy tale, by living here all year 'round!

And that Rose wine is still waiting (a fresh bottle, natch!) for those who wish to come and enjoy this little part of "paradise"......

Big sky.

Quiet days.

And chateaux that are waiting to be visited--or not. They'll still be here, if you just decide to go to a farmers' market, buy, eat, enjoy and take a snooze.

The days are long this time of year, so there is plenty of time for all of the above.

Thank you for the rave review, we hope to see you in not too distant future!

Well, that sure is a lovely review!!!!!

Thank you so much.

We really enjoyed having them here as well and hope that they'll return sooner rather than later. And, pass our information onto friends and family.

There's room in September and October for those who are travelling later in the year.......

Off to the pool and lunch afterwards al fresco.
