If you want peace and quiet and a place to unwind this is perfect.The farmhouse is very well maintained and equipped with the bonus of a swimming pool,very welcome when it gets hot.You do of course need a car if you want to do a bit of sight seeing but it is well worth it,the local villages are a delight and the places to eat are many and varied

“Peaceful private location - very relaxing and plenty to keep our children busy.”
Reviewed 1 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This was our second visit to La Caltiere. We went for a week last summer and enjoyed it so much, found it really relaxing but a week did not feel like long enough so we returned for two weeks this summer. The booking process is very smooth with the owners and they are very helpful.
Once again this year we loved the location - a huge garden space not overlooked at all where we played rounders and football. The pool is great - our youngest learnt to swim there last year and this time he, with his brothers, spent plenty of time in it as we did too. Sitting by the pool is very relaxing and feels idyllic. The table tennis table is also a big hit with us and between that, the petanc court and playing pool there was plenty to keep us all busy. We also used the bikes and cycled each day to the village to buy bread and pain au chocolat which was good exercise and great to be cycling past sunflower fields on extremely quiet roads. The house is very comfortable and we happily cooked and ate all our meals there and found being in the house very relaxing. I have included my recommendation as being suitable for families with young children (ours are 8, 11 and 12) but very very young children would maybe find the staircase a bit tricky but ours this year and last have no problem with it. It really is a very easy house to stay in, with plenty of space.
Once again at the end of this stay we didn't want to come home.
Maureen and Terry who look after the property there are so helpful and friendly in a very unobtrusive way. All in all a fab holiday.

“Beautifully setting, great house but needs updating”
Reviewed 27 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We were a family of 4 that stayed in the house for ten days. the house and location is great and quite central in The Loire Valley region.
The house itself is great. It sure is a renovated 17th. Farmstead so we knew what we had booked - being seasoned travellers and adventures. However, with the rate quoted and charged we were quite disappointed on how old the items were in the house. For instance the cooking pots and frying pans seemed as old as the house, we couldn't use them. The mattresses were of poor quality and the beds creaked with each movement.
We advised prior to departure on the items that needed attention like the bathrooms and showers.
Overall, would be go back. Yes - but we'd have to be guaranteed that the house received much needed care and attention.
the housekeepers themselves, Terry & Maureen (not the owners) were extremely helpful and thoughful. The house would be in dire straits without their care.

Dear Siobhan , Thank you for your kind review. Indeed the managers of the property are one of the most important aspect of the farm as they are so devoted to ensuring that all guests have the best possible experience. We have replaced all the saucepans and frying pans at your suggestion. The beds were perhaps too soft for you but other guests have found them to be very comfortable. We are so pleased to have heard from our housekeepers that you had such a lovely time.
