Stayed here last week with my wife and two young girls for three nights. The quality and attention to detail is immediately apparent on arrival, with Nicole and Alex providing a warm welcome making one feel very much at home. Chene Cottage is by its nature a fairly small cottage but is plenty big enough to accomodate a family of four if one child is still young enough for a cot.
Nicole provides a very efficient and high quality optional breakfast and dinner service if required, a lot of which is made with ingredients from their own kitchen garden or from the immediately neighbouring farms - very handy if you have been out all day and don't wish to cook.
Alternatively, there is a range of barbeque equipment available for use, as well as fully equipped kitchens in each property.
Le Grand Pressigny is 5 mins away by car and has all the usual facilities, e.g. baker, bank, convenience store, bar etc. For a proper supermarket one must go to Descartes which is only 15 mins or so away. The latter also has a very appealing public leisure pool, which makes up for the lack of this facility at the property.
There is a plentiful and wide variety of activities within the locale, chateaux, animal parks, vineyards, historic and picturesque towns etc. Alex will even accompany you as a guide for a fishing trip if this is something that is of interest.
I very much hope to visit the property again, soon, and for longer!
