Literally a minutes walk from local patisseries, boulangeries, tabac and restaurants yet there isn't a whisper of traffic; only the trickle of the steam that runs beside the garden (It's an icy cold stream, but perfect for keeping your Sancerre wine chilled on warm summer nights while you tend to the bbq.) Lovely, grassy backyard space which was great for playing cricket and football and setting up a toddler paddling pool for the kids. The Gite has rustic charm but totally refurbished with modern conveniences and a ensuite in every room! Arlette and Phillipe delivered fresh croissants to our door every morning and arranged a private wine tasting at Vincent Pinard winery.
The Loire river is also a fifteen minute walk which everyone paddles in during the summer but we were told to be cautious of the strong current! From there you can hire mountain bikes or canoes or play a round of golf
This is the second time we have enjoyed the hospitality and generosity of Arlette and Phillipe.The five bedrooms are beautifully appointed and all the facilities are of such a high standard.We also loved our time in Sancerre with many pleasant restaurants to chose from.This all in all was a wonderful holiday for our families.Thank you once again Arlette and Phillipe.
