Thank you for your review. It's great to know that you enjoyed your stay at the cottage and the footpath along the Loire River. Often walking West at Sunset the river turns to liquid gold!

Great to hear that you both enjoyed your stay at the cottage. The garden was a little slow to get going this year due to an exceptionally cold winter. Traffic on the road is even less frequent during the summer holidays, (July to end September).

“A blissful end to our tour of Europe”
Reviewed 23 December 2011 for a stay in December 2011

We had brilliant autumnal weather during our stay at the cottage which we found to be very comfortable, clean and nicely furnished. We liked the decoration too, it felt very French. It was a real treat to help ourselves to fruit and veg. Especially the feijoas, raspberries and kiwifruit. There were some lovely plants in the flower garden which was a bonus. My partner and I particularly enjoyed the river walk and cycling the quiet roads and exploring what the area had to offer. Bus service was reliable, very handy. The whole experience was hassle-free. A perfect end to our European tour.

“We left early”
Reviewed 24 November 2011 for a stay in May 2011

My husband and I were wrapping up our third week in France, which had been so lovely until we got to the cottage. It felt like no one had been to the house in years. There were spider webs and spiders everywhere! There were ants in the master bedroom's bathroom windowsill. The owner so kindly left bug spray in multiple areas throughout the house. The smell in the bedroom was so terrible. It smelled like urine. My husband and I usually just want a place to lay our heads at night that is clean, but I could not bare to lay my head there another night so after we woke up to a spider on the wall the size of tarantula, we left two days early. The place does have a nice quiet location with potential, but it needs help. We appreciate clean hotels/vacation rentals on a whole other level now. They should really call this place Charlotte's web.

Thank you for your review. I had understood that you and your husband had left early to be closer to the airport, (see attached email). The majority of guest reviews, both before and following your stay are in the majority extremely positive. The cottage has been let continuously from mid-April and is thoroughly cleaned between guests. I will look into the suitability of the new sea-grass flooring on the first floor as you are now the second guest to have mentioned this. It would have been constructive to have discussed your concerns prior to your departure.

We are going to leave this afternoon from the cottage. Should we just leave the keys under the same pot? Thanks, R K
