Reviewed 29 July 2011

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!

We spent 4 days in Chez Anna at Les Limornieres when we were attending a wedding celebration. The accommodation is beautifully appointed, and it was the little touches such as the welcome pack and the genuinely friendly welcome which made us want to stay longer. We loved the way the buildings had been refurbished, combining respect for the historic origins with detailed attention to providing for every need. We thoroughly enjoyed a great BBQ with Alex, Nicole and their children on our first evening, Nicole provided detailed information about the area and gave us useful directions to more out of the way places. We had fabulous weather, and were fascinated by the farm crops all around - sunflowers in particular. We will certainly be recommending this place to our friends, and we hope to go back there one day.

My husband and I stayed for 10 lovely days with our little boy, we had a great time. The chene cottage is perfectly proportioned and it was so lovely to have use of the garden too. The family are veery hospitable and couldn't do enough to help out. Would definitely recommend staying here. The area is beautiful and the food is amazing. There is even a Michellin restaurant in the next village!!

We stayed here while touring in rural France. Stayed for 2 days and really wished that we had stayed for longer as fell in love with it. Alex and Nicole were great hosts, they were on hand when we needed to ask questions and gave good advice on where to visit, local supermarkets etc. The gite we rented had two bedrooms, excellent facilities, dish washer, oven etc. We visited here with my son aged 10 and they had a bike for all of us to use during our stay all included. We had our own lovely courtyard with full use of a barbeque. The gite was immaculet and more than enough space for the three of us. Had a quick look in the larger gite as it was being vacacted by previous guests and if, sorry no, when we come back with extended family, we will try to book this one.

We stayed in Le Chene cottage last June (2010) and it was just gorgeous very quint and romantic but with all the amenities you need. The interior was just beautiful and ALex and Nicole have gone to great lenghts to make the cottage so comfortable but yet keeping its original charm. Lots to do in the area - something for everyone - our
favouites being Loches,Montresor, the vineyeards of Chinon and Saumur and Amboise to name but a few ! Our hosts Alex and Nicole were also so helpful and welcoming - always there to offer suggestions and help if needed but without being instusive. Hope to return some day with our baby daughter next time as it seems very well catered for babies and children. Thanks again.

We stayed here in the Chene cottage with our 15 month old daughter. It had everything we needed and more. Nicole and Alex were so nice and the snack that was ready when we arrived was wonderful. The cottage was well stocked with toys and ammenities for our daughter to include a crib, high chair and tons of books. There was also a swing that our daughter loved as well as chickens and a rabbit to watch. Overall it was a great place to stay and very convienient for exploring the areas chateaus. The only thing that would have made it better would have been wifi.

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your thoughts on your recent stay ay les Limornieres.

We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and its convenient location for touring and exploring the Loire Valley.

We do not currently advertise the availability of Wifi as we would not wish to overpromise this service.

Our location is currently served by slow internet connection of 512k, this combined with the 50cm thick stone walls leads to inconsistent signal..

However we understand when travelling internet access can be important in planning your next stop so we have made our own WiFi access code available in the cottage handbook to guests for them to try & we can suggest the best places to sit to gain access!

Also free Wifi internet access is available in the local village of le Grand Pressigny (3km) in the Tourist office or very conveniently outside the bar next door! This free 'town' access Wifi is available in the town and village squares of many French villages.

Once again thank you for your feedback, best wishes Alex & Nicole Crawford
