“Family Holiday 2013”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This is our 3rd visit to Le Grenier and its fabulous, clean and spacious. I just can't fault the property. If your after a relaxing holiday then this is the place to consider. The WIFI, push bikes & the new inclusion of a gas bar b q are great. This Gite is a "must" for families to consider. My children are 11 & 8 yrs old and both loved the table football, basket ball & push bikes to use.

“Fantastic holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This was our second visit to Le Grenier and we just love it here. The gite is great (just look at the reviews) and Andrew is such a congenial host, it's a pleasure to be greeted by him at the end of a long drive. In fact, Andrew is is a large part of what makes this holiday so successful, he treats running the gite like a job (even if he makes it look easy, glass of wine in hand, etc!). He really couldn't do enough for us or the kids.

If you have children, there is plenty to do around the gite, from table football to basketball and badminton and Andrew is always refreshing the equipment and activities available (for instance there were 7 bikes at our disposal!). Nearby there is the superb zoo, great chateaus, a water park and plenty of beautiful towns and villages to stroll around.

If you haven't guessed already, we've rebooked for next year!

“Our Piece of Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This was our second visit to Le Grenier and it was just as good as the last, unfortunately the weather was not on our side but that didn't matter because there are some many places to go and things to do. This place is a little piece of heaven made all the better by Andrew's great hospitality, Norman's (the cat) daily visit to the fridge and of course, we can't leave our Samson and Zeus (the donkeys). Le Grenier is a place everyone should visit at least once to experience its charms, the space and the tranquillity. It doesn't matter if you are young or old, there is something for everyone. We love it and will be back again.

“Extremely comfortable, well appointed home away from home in a serene setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

After six days in Paris, Le Grenier provided an ideal spot to relax and take in the many sights of the Loire Valley. We really appreciated how clean every room was upon our arrival. The abundant acitivities--both inside and out--for our two kids (aged 6 and 10) made it difficult to leave some days! We appreciated having bikes available for all of us to ride, and Andrew's flexibility and willingness to assist was very much appreciated. We think that Zeus and Samson were likely highly entertained by our kids antics--they were definitely overfed by them--and Norman (our doorman) had all of us well-trained within a matter of minutes. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this area--and more particularly, this gite!!--to families who want to relax in an extremely comfortable, spacious well-equipped gite. A day trip to Chambord is definitely doable (and well worth the drive!) and there are countless lovely towns and sites to explore within a reasonable distance if you can drag yourself away from the comfort of the gite. (I really liked Blois which we explored the same day as Chambord.) Wi fi did work BUT if one must really be performing work that requires the downloading of multiple large documents and seriously high speed internet, this will be a bit of an issue fo you. (It may very well be that seriously high speed internet is not available in such a rural location.) We definitely hope to return to Le Grenier soon!
