Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 October 2012

We stayed in the larger Gite/cottage. It could have used a good cleaning. Kitchen was a challenge to prepare meals.
Owners were VERY concerned to get money up front, including taking our last euros for the security deposit. We were a travel weary middle aged couple who were not about to wreak havoc on the property! A little trust would have been appreciated.
Everything in the gite was just adequate. Wifi was a problem/weak.

i red your opinion and very surprised by it. you came in our gite without confirmation of your booking by deposit and new mail as precised in the answer to your enquiry. we received you in the large gite for the price of the small which was enquired . the securit deposit was precised in my first mail and restitued when you go back. for the cleaning i must precise you are in an old house in stone and the stone of tuffeau crumble in dust. but each gite is systematically cleaned between the different families and the different opinion testify that it's the first time we have a remark. for the kitchen this summer in very high season a belgian family with three daughters found it very well equiped to cook. so do'nt hesitate to precise me what you want exactly to improve my service.
i am very worried you dont spent a good stay in our gite to Chinon though you did not say nothing when you went back. best regards

I stayed in this hotel in July - it was perfect. The room we stayed in was so beautifully decorated and modern. The oudoor pool was great to cool off and then the couple who run it made a fantastic, and very french, meal! On etait tres gatees! The hospitality was fantastic. I would definately go back. Plus - only a small walk into Chinon.

Room Tip: Loved the room by the pool :)

A fantastic breakfast enriched with several home-made dishes, and an abundance of useful information about things to do and to see. Nice view and a lovely swimming-pool. Located close to the town center. A perfect place to start your trip to the numerous touristic highlights nearby.

We stopped here for 1 night en route to our holiday in Brittany. The owners were very friendly (good advice on wineries to visit in area), rooms clean, location is quite private with easy access to town. There is ample parking and a great breakfast. However best feature was the very welcome pool (it was 37°C when we were there in late July). I think every single guest was in the pool...

Room Tip: Our room (I think it was called 'Voyage') was very hot in the summer sun but the owners did...

Sylvie is the perfect hostess. Greeted us with open arms and showed us to a wonderful self-contained "unit" at the front/side of the house, adjacent to the pool and BBQ. Room was huge and extremely clean. Likewise the bathroom. Would be the biggest bathroom (separate toilet) of any of the B&B's we stayed at while traveling around France. The breakfast was fantastic. Home made jams and other unusual, but very tasty, French breakfast treats. The overall experience was so good we decided to stay an extra day. You won't be disappointed. You will however need a car to get there. Only a couple of minutes from the town centre however.

Since Les Cathelinettes offer WiFi, we tried to have a "working vacation" here. The first 3 days the Internet connection was very bad. We complained several times. The 4th day the Internet connection stopped completely, which forced us to leave (some people have to work for their money), having spent 5 days but having paid for 7 days. We asked for a discount, but although Les Cathelinettes promised us something they could not deliver (WiFi), we had to pay for a full week. That is apart from the costs we had to pay for an extra two nights at a hotel with reliable WiFi. So, we paid for 7 days for a gite with WiFi, we got 5 days without WiFi connection.
