Reviewed 6 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Le Grenier fulfilled all our expectations both inside and outside. It was great to have a garden at the front and the back which made it ideal for outside living. There were interesting places to visit without having to drive too far although it was very pleasant to pass by the fields of sunflowers, vines, roses and crops. A nearby lake was ideal for walks and picnics. Andrew and Jackie are excellent hosts....we certainly hope to return next year.

“Le Grenier - home from home!”
Reviewed 13 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Back at our favourite gite of all time, 4 years in a row and already booked for a 5th in 2017! A wonderfully relaxed setting, spacious very well appointed gite, a large walled garden, table tennis room, boules area, resident donkeys so no bread wasted, and genial & entertaining hosts Andrew & Jackie. Enjoy the quiet countryside, the many chateaux within easy reach, the local wine...
Just go, you won't regret it!

“Still the best gite we have stayed in!”
Reviewed 20 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Shh... Keep this to yourselves but there is no better gite in the Loire, in France! Spacious, very well appointed, quiet & relaxing, lots of countryside to explore nearby, table tennis, boules, donkeys for the leftovers, and the ever entertaining Andrew to make your holiday complete. Our third visit and we could have sworn that, nestling amongst the polished chestnuts, there were several jokes we had not heard before! New jokes, surely not! Back next year, we would not miss it!

“We'd give it 6 stars if we could!”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We've just spent a week at this wonderful accommodation. From the moment we made our enquiry nothing was too much trouble for Andrew. He always responded promptly and was extremely helpful. We arrived in this lovely, quiet hamlet to a warm, friendly welcome and were quickly made to feel at home. There was a bottle of wine and some nibbles in the kitchen which was a very thoughtful touch. The gite is very clean, spacious, extremely comfortable and well equipped. The split level accommodation would be ideal for 2 couples sharing as it has one en suite bedroom upstairs and a bedroom & bathroom downstairs. A lot of thought has gone into making this extremely high quality accommodation, it has all the luxuries of home and more. It was great to have free wifi and English TV. For relaxation you could lie in the peace & quiet of the garden on loungers with a book and a glass of local wine which we did on several sunny occasions. We had some lovely cycle rides around the country lanes. We particularly enjoyed riding via Argentay to Le Puy Notre Dame for lunch at Le Bouchon Ponot where we had delicious, reasonably priced meals served by a delightful English speaking waitress. We took the car to venture further afield and enjoyed exploring the many interesting places in the Loire valley. We highly recommend this lovely gite and we would give it 6 stars if we could.

“The best gite we've ever stayed in”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 for a stay in June 2014

What an incredible gite. Pictures on the website do not do it justice.

Spotlessly clean and at the same time warm and welcoming. Spacious and full of character with beams, vaulted ceilings and exposed stonework.

The gite catered for all our needs with integrated appliances, two shower rooms and there was a vast variety of games and activities for children (and two lovely donkeys who enjoyed the odd baguette)! Andrew, the owner lives on site; available but never intrusive.

We loved the table tennis, basket ball, table football and great bikes – that were all available for our own private use. The area is perfect for cycling around the quiet lanes and tracks.

We especially enjoyed relaxing in the evening in the beautiful private garden and grounds with a BBQ and glass of local wine (brought back from one of the nearby Châteaux wine tastings).

On other days out we went to the Zoo at Doue (definitely worth a visit) and went Go Karting which was great fun too!

We have already booked for next year : )
