“Peace and quiet and two friendly cats”
Reviewed 18 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Wonderful location for a relaxing get-away . Nearby town offered everything we needed and the Loire river only a short drive away with great canoeing

“Peaceful, restorative and perfect for two”

person found this review helpful

This well equipped small gite proved to be a perfect base for enjoying both the peaceful emptiness of the French countryside yet close enough for chateaux exploration on the Loire. The magnificent gardens at Villandry, the quirky art works at Oiron and the room sets of past magnificence at Usse were all within an hour's drive. The croissants from the nearer of the two village bakeries were the best we'd tasted this holiday (using one of the owner's bikes for the two km distance made for a great start for the day).

We appreciated being able to use the sunny and shady garden with one meal in glorious evening warmth under the trees

The cats added life to the place - the owners have two but three and sometimes four appeared each day when the owner or a neighbour fed them (they never came into the gite).

It is ideal for two (just as advertised!!).

“Simple and clean…perfect for our needs.”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We used the gite for people staying with us where we had no spare rooms and it was perfect for them. Our guests spent most of the time with us up the road, and just slept there.

There is a need for the internet to be up and running.

It is simple living with a bedroom, living space and bathroom. The sofa bed needs to be improved, but we put our own mattress on the floor in the living space when we needed more room.

You'd need a car to stay there…or at least a bike.

Thanks for that. We now have WiFi at the property, sorry it wasn't there in time for you. The gite is advertised for 2 people so using the sofa as a bed is not usually an issue but we will look into that.

“Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed 6 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The location of the gite was fantastic, secluded and surrounded by counrtyside and only 15 mins drive to lovely Saumer and it's market & restaurants. There is so much to do in the locality we could easily spend a month here.
The girls loved playing outside the gite in the huge garden, as soon as they woke up every morning they were straight outside playing and exploring.
We would definitely use this gite as a base to explore the Loire again.
