“Perfect stay”
Reviewed 14 September 2014 for a stay in May 2013

This was a perfect place to stay in Loches, close enough to walk into the village and quiet enough to park outside of the gite. This ancient gite had been lovingly restored to a high standard while still retaining its character. It also provides a outside space for your eclusive use where we often ate lunch or sat with a glass of wine. The owners were extremely welcoming and kind. We highly recommend this accommodation.

Thank you for this full five green circles' review...and your very nice recommendation for our vacation rental "Gite du Chevalier", ("Knight's Cottage" in English), we remember you very well and had a great pleasure to help you for living "as french way of life" for a week.
Thank you to notice how this place is peaceful in spite of being, town centered location ; it makes it so convinient for romantic walks or, just few meters to go to buy bread and "croissants" at street corner, or visit our wednesday and saturday (fabulous)market.
We'd be happy to see to see you here again, one day... Enjoy Life ...Philippe & Christine

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 9 September 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at this gite in June 2014. It really is a great base to stay in, very comfortable bed, well fitted kitchen, lovely garden to eat out in. It was very clean and in good condition. The gite is a great location a short walk down a cobbled street from the cafés, restaurants and shops in Loches, which has a fantastic market on Wednesdays and Saturdays - and easy driving distance from numerous chateaux. Highly recommended for a couple.

Thank you for this full five green circles' review...and your very nice recommendation for our vacation rental "Gite du Chevalier", ("Knight's Cottage" in English), where we had the pleasure to welcome you for a week.
We also thank everyday our choice to stay in that peaceful centered location ; it is so convinient here, and so much more comfortable to just have to walk, just few meters to buy bread and "croissants" in our fabulous bakery, at our street corner, or visit our wednesday and saturday extra-ordinary centered market, next to the house.
All of our gite's guests noticed it, and usually, always speak about it in their reviews, here on Tripadvisor, or on our guestbook.
Our very special location is a daily plaisure for us too.
The town of Loches is , with all its pedestrian and medieval streets, fantastic, for that too : a preserved gem of history, with a fantastic atmosphere.
We are very happy if you adopted a bit of our "french "art of living well" with great local products, breads, cheeses and fabulous local wines... Enjoy Life ...Philippe & Christine
