This was a perfect place to go to round out our France trip (spending the rest of our vacation in Paris). It was easy to get to from the airport. Took the train to Tours, then rented a car. The hosts are lovely, helpful and friendly. Their recommendations for things to to were thoughtful and perfect for day trips. We will definitely be back, this time with our kids. Such a perfect place!
Initially we had planned to stay in Amboise and a brief stop off in that town on our way back to the train station in Tours confirmed that we made the right choice. I recommend bypassing the more touristy towns to spend time in a more authentic country-side location. Even though we don't speak French, everyone was helpful and nice. Highly recommend this area and specifically this lovely place.
