We enjoyed the tranquility and the fact that the cottage surroundings were so interesting and safe for a child to explore. There were many interesting places to visit in the vicinity so this made a good base.
My family and myself went to Loire Valley during Eastern. We were allocated at La Bergerie which is a very nice house. Very confortable and located in a relaxing area. There is not any noise you can hear. Size of the house is fine for a 4 member family. It has a big garden where children can play without any risk. It is at a reasonable distance from main castles and attractions such as Futuroscope or Beuval Zoo. Car is needed for everything but Loches is at less than 10 minutes and there you have shops and supermarkets for nearly everything you may need. Thanks to Stephanie for her hospitality and kindness.
My husband Ian and I plus dog Daisy stayed for a week. The cottage is well equiped, warm and the beds are very comfortable. The town of Loches only 10 minutes away is lovely, many good restaurants, narrow streets and interesting shops. The market on a Saturday and Wednesday morning is a 'must do'. The donjon (keep) and Royal Lodge which dominate the town are well worth a visit. Be prepared to climb a lot of stairs though! We also visited other chateaux and villages in the valley, all of which are an easy drive away. One word of warning, off season many of the restaurants go on 'conges annuelle' ( annual holidays!) so it is well worth booking in advance. Stéphanie is lovely, and provides lots of tips and ideas of good places to visit. Very much enjoyed our holiday, and will return!
A lovely location (outlook and quietness). Perfectly fitted-out.Lots of space and host is very helpful
