“Great studio in medieval surroundings”
Reviewed 1 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013
2
people found this review helpful

The location of the studio is great, in the middle of the centre of Loches, but it's also quiet enough to sit in the garden with a book. The house and garden are absolutely gorgious. We love the town of Loches, not too touristic and not too quiet. The medieval centre is very nice. Lively market twice a week in walking distance. Also supermarket and restaurants very near. You can go swimming, cycling, touring by car. The landlady is very kind and the service is excellent. The studio is a bit small but well-equiped.

Liked best: The beautiful garden.

Dear Jaqueline and Jelle, it was very nice to see you enjoy the garden, sunbathe on the lawn, immersed in reading, have a drink and talking together… Thanks for our many exchanges, and yours suggestions to improve my service!
I hope to give to you another time the chance to relax you in my garden after a year of hard work…
All the best to you two,
Silvia & Lilli

“Authentic charm, excellent location and superb hospitality!”
Reviewed 28 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Villa a l'ancien Pigeonnier is a charming historical property that dates back to the 9th Century. It is located in the centre of Loches very near the entrance to the Chateau and just meters away from restaurants and shops. Free parking is available across the street against the Chateau wall.The property currently has a two bedroom apartment and a studio, both with access to its beautiful English-style garden. When I inquired about booking the apartment for 5 days in July, it had already been booked and the owner, Silvia, generously offered us her apartment as we required two separate bedrooms. We jumped at the opportunity and this stay was one of the highlights of our trip! The property has been updated in a manner that retains its historical charm. It is clean, well-appointed and good value. Silvia is wonderful and went out of her way to make us feel welcome and ensure that we had what we needed. We felt like we were leaving a friend at the end of our stay. I would highly recommend this property for its uniqueness, comfort, location and hospitality and would not hesitate to stay there again in the future.

Leave my private part of the house to Donna and Jo-Anne was a natural and spontaneous gesture towards two women who faced a long journey to come to me: what an honor! … and I quickly realized that I had not made a better choice ! Immediately appeared two friends came to see me from afar…
A gift from Paris to thank me, together to the public garden concert, with the nose up to watch the spectacle of fireworks for the French National Day…
When are you back again????? We miss you…

“Charming property in excellent location”
Reviewed 21 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

person found this review helpful

Conveniently situated near the centre of the historic town of Loches. The apartment is part of an old house which the new owner has recently upgraded while retaining the character and quirky nature. The property had everything we required but as we were two couples the fact that the only access to the toilet was through the main bedroom was not ideal, this would not be a problem for a family. The reasonable rental price reflected this limitation.The weather was beautiful during our stay and so we were able to make full use of the private garden.There was parking at the front of the property. Silvia, the owner, was superb.

Living the house with my four English guests – the first ever to have booked a holiday at the “Villa”!! – was very pleasant. The excellent balance between privacy and cordial exchanges, made it the ideal coexistence, leaving a sad emptiness when they leaved…
Thanks to Trudy for your valuable suggestions in the hope (the mine and Lilli’s!) to be able another time to welcome you here “chez nous”!! Silvia & Lilli

“A perfect place to stay!”
Reviewed 14 July 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We loved our stay in Silvie’s apartment within the old walls of Loches. A perfect place to stay!
The apartment was very clean, quiet and perfect for 2 people.
Our garden was wonderful in the vision of an English cottage garden, private with a great view over the roofs.
We were within the walled town and only a short walk away were bakeries for our fresh bread and croissants in the mornings with lovely restaurants nearby. Silvie was very generous, thoughtful, friendly and helpful.

Marie et Nicholas… special guests for a week of delicate trade in our brief encounters in the garden, a cup of tea in hand walking among the roses… Magnifique souvenir!
Thank you for your smile, the generosity of your gestures and your ways, your class simply…
All the best to you two in the intimate desire to have you back here...
