Our family of 4 (2 children aged 10 and 7) spent a week at La Colombe. Excellent accommodation, clean and well-equipped, with plenty of space. We especially liked the fact that both bedrooms were en-suite. We loved dining al fresco on the terrace overlooking the pool and beautiful gardens. The children enjoyed the pool, the swings, playing football in the large field and boules in the courtyard. We spent a lovely day in Loches, another at the Clos Luce (Leonardo da Vinci's final home) in Amboise and another at the chateau of Chenonceau, as well as visiting some of the surrounding villages. The Intermarche at Descartes was very convenient and driving in the area was easy and stress-free.
Ian and Sandra were most welcoming and helpful and we enjoyed the wine which greeted us on arrival. We would very much like to return to the Loire and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else - one of the best gites we've ever stayed in!More
