“A comfy spot in the French countryside”

If you're looking for a secluded getaway in the middle of France, this is it. The tiny village of Troo is surrounded by farms and overlooks the Loire valley. It's very quiet and beautiful. The cottage is quite nice. It's two rooms stacked on top of each other connected by a spiral staircase. The upper floor has a couple of couches, a table, and the kitchen. By European standards, this kitchen is quite large. The door opens onto a wonderful terrace. The lower floor has a bedroom and the bathroom. The property owner, Kate, was extremely helpful and communicative. We had absolutely no problems at all during our stay, and we'd recommend it highly. The one word of caution is that since it's off the beaten path, you'll have to drive a bit farther to see the popular chateaus of the Loire. Of course, there are so many things to see in this region, you'll easily find lots to enjoy. It was a unique experience to stay in one of these "troglodyte" homes. It's not really a cave, it's just built on the hillside. The property description is accurate that you need to park a couple of blocks away up a steep path. That's sort of nice in that there are no cars nearby. In summary, this was an awesome cottage.

“Get away from it all in Deep France”

Stayed for a week in September. The booking process was very easy and the deposit was returned within a day of departure. The gite was clean and charming with stunning views over the valley. Troo itself is a charming village and the area has several points of interest, most notably the stunning early frescos in some local churchs. Visiting various Chateaux of the area namely Chambord, Blois, Amboise and Chenonceau is possible but travel time is an hour/hour and half each way. Still well worth it. There are some very pretty villages in the area. The main benefit to this gite is the get away from it all feel. Do nothing except glasses of wine on the terrace and catch up on the reading. With no Roads and very comfortable bed a great nights sleep is guaranteed. The gite has excellent wifi, however if you are staying for a number of days note there is no TV or DVD player so if you are there for more than a couple of days you might want to bring a Laptop to watch things on. For a week of relaxation (and a good Cardio Vascular work out going up to the car!) I can certainly recommend it.
