We stayed in Saule for five days in June 2011 with our three children 10yrs, 12yrs and 14yrs after four weeks travelling in Europe. The Loire Valley was our last stop before Paris and it was a welcome haven in which to recharge before moving onto the city of lights!
Our hosts Nicole and Alex and their daughters were excellent at being there just when we needed them. We had many interesting conversations and they helped shape our visit by suggesting lots of interesting avtivities. The highlights were: visiting the goat cheese farm near our gite, the market in Descartes, horseback riding and swimming.
All our e-mail communications with Nicole and Alex were smooth and clear. This little gem tucked in the beautiful Loire Valley is exactly as you see on their website, in fact it exceeded our expectations when we arrived. The arrival snack was an excellent touch and so appreciated especially after a long car ride.
If we ever have the good fortune to go back to France we will definatley visit the little gite we called home for our time in the Loire. Thanks again Nicole and Alex!
p.s. we hoped you enjoyed the Tour de France...we were so jealous watching back in Canada knowing you were right there!
