“Gem of the Loire Valley”
Reviewed 23 September 2011 for a stay in June 2011

We have spent the last 4 years taking hols in the Loire region of France because it is a beautiful part of the country, 3 of these holidays have been at Felicity & Chris's cottage. I know the worlds a big place and theres always more to discover, but when you come across a 'Gem' of a cottage like this, its hard to not re-book it because you know you are going to an amazing cottage where everything you can imagine is thought of and provided for you.

The cottage is spotless, all fixtures and fittings are of a good quality and every time you go they have upgraded something. They are always striving to improve and take customers feedback very seriously.

Our last holiday was for 3 glorious weeks, and it took a while to get back to the fast pace of England when we returned. This cottage is located in such a private and quiet area, the only thing you hear is the distant clanking of gates when the cows are being milked and of course "the girls", which are Felicitys chickens who lay the most delicious eggs, which you can take freshly laid from their pen and leave a small donation. "The Girls" are a huge hit with all children, our 4yr old daughter loved them and insisted i bought them sweetcorn every day so she could hand feed them.

There is also a small pond across from the cottage (part of the rental) which you can fish from (rods & line provided) or can simply sit on the bench and relax or have a picnic (picnic blanket even provided!) The swimming pool is a perfect size for children to play in and is securely fenced. All the property is securely fenced so you really can chill out even when you have small wandering children with you!

We have been fortunate enough to stay in a lot of cottages / ski chalets, and the reason we have returned to La Joie de Muguets 3 times is because it is so perfect for such a reasonable price. In our opinion it is the best cottage in the area, but if you want to book it you have to be quick about it, because they get booked up with repeat customers because they also know when they are onto a good thing! So send that booking email quickly!

Must also mention the incredible welcome basket or more like a hamper they leave you! We have never rented anywhere who have been as generous. You literally would not have to buy any food for the first few days as all meals are covered.

Its great to know we have knowledge of a perfect little cottage in the Loire where the standards never ever go down (like most places usually do). I could go on forever about this fabulous cottage and its superb location, with so many Chateaux and attractions to see and do no matter what the weather! (Must mention La Fleche Zoo - an absolute must visit for all animal lovers - ive never been so close to a huge lion!)

We recommend this cottage hugely to anyone who appreciates and 'respects' a good quality cottage. Felicity, Chris and Sam are a wealth of knowledge on the area ,a very friendly and approachable family who will always do their best to make your holiday a happy one you will remember.

Thanks Felicity, for everything you did to make our daughters 4th birthday party so special with all our family together, we really did appreciate what you did for us. We had a lovely 3 weeks (in comfortable beds) and look forward to seeing you all again very soon.

“A perfect holiday in every way!”
Reviewed 15 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We visited this property from 23rd July to 3rd August and found it to be perfect in every way. Firstly, the owners Felicity and Chris could not have been more welcoming, and the property itself was everything we had dreamed it would be, having booked a year in advance and looking forward to it for so long. It was situated in a peaceful, rural location but within easy reach of all that the loire region has to offer. We spent relaxing days around the lovely pool, visited french markets and chateaux, and ate out at some lovely restuarants. We would happily recommend the cottage to anybody looking for a relaxing stay in France. It was clean, modern with lots of thoughtful touches provided by the owners, including the welcome hamper with lots of french goodies inside. The daily eggs provided by the friendly eggs were also very much appreciated. We couldn't have had a better holiday, our only regret was that we could not stay for longer.

“A Great Cottage - very well equipped and lovely owners”
Reviewed 2 June 2011 for a stay in May 2011

people found this review helpful

This is our second holiday at this gite as it is so good - it's very clean, well equipped and comfortable. The owners, Felicity and Chris are extremely welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for them. The pool and gite are very private although only 50 yards from their house.
This is the ideal location for a relaxing break and the owners have tried to include everything to acheive this. All the extras you would want are here - Satellite TV, wi-fi, and a playstation in the lounge.
All in all, this is a lovely, well equipped gite in beautiful surroundings.
