“Wonderful stay at le Pigeonnier”
Reviewed 7 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We stayed for 4 days at Le Pigeonnier, a lovely gite for 2 persons. The gite was very tidy, well-organized and had everything you needed: even a BBQ outside. The bed was perfect. Patience and Dave were very welcoming and helpful and showed us a lot of possibilities to do in this region. Not only did they (beforehand of the journey) invite us to various events, they also took us to Salon de Vignerions, an annual winefestival which was great. Furthermore there are a lot of things to do in Loire, we visited castles and rented mountainbikes, went to small city’s and chilled at the pool (which was very very nice, relaxed and pre-heated!). Also Le Promenade is a recommendation. Concluding, we had a wonderful time at Le Richardiere, I would recommend it to everybody!

“What a lovely place to stay!”
Reviewed 26 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We had a wonderful week at Le Pigeonnier from 5th to 12th May 2018. We received a very warm welcome from Dave, Patience and Min. We had wonderful weather and were able to make good use of the pool (an added bonus is that it is heated). The Gite is lovely; immaculately clean and well equipped. There are double doors and a balcony on the first floor which means you can enjoy the views over the countryside. This property is set slightly apart from the other two Gites which gives an element of additional privacy. There is a patio area with its own table, chairs, parasol, barbecue and sun loungers. The gardens are well tended with picnic tables to use, table tennis and other games. The surrounding countryside and villages are beautiful with lots to see and do and many good restaurants. We would not hesitate in recommending this venue to anyone and hope to visit again.

Thank you for this excellent description of our Gite, Le Pigeonnier. It does sound idyllic, doesn't it?
We once stayed in the Gite, just to try it out, and found, just like you, the beautiful views over the countryside and the peaceful setting in the grounds of La Richardière. We hope that others may follow your recommendation.

“Perfection!”
Reviewed 20 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

What a delightful and wonderful place to spend our honeymoon! Our little gite had everything we needed, including a charming balcony and gorgeous views of the French countryside! The stars at night were spectacular, outshone only by our host's hospitality and care. While out in the country, La Richardiere is just a short drive from dozens of historic chateaux, paleolithic sites, and wonderful little market towns. Couldn't recommend it more highly!

Thanks for choosing our Gites for your special time. We are so pleased you got to see the stars. There is so little light pollution here that the Milky Way is clearly visible on many evenings.

I spent two great weeks here quiet and peaceful but also lots of places to visit and things to do such as Loches and Chateau Villandy and the museum in Grande Pressagne. The gite was very equipped in all ways and I loved the sitting area and balcony in the bedroom. Dave and Patience great hosts the musical evening and Daves fiddle playing superb.I would certainly go again.

“The most beautiful location, perfect property & lovely hosts!”
Reviewed 8 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We spent a fabulous week at le Pigeonnier, the sun shone & we made good use of the pool! Dave & Patience keep the property & all communal areas immaculately clean, they are wonderfully attentive without being intrusive, they genuinely want you to enjoy your experience of the Loire, the local area & all of its offerings.
The property is beautifully well presented, well equipped & has the most beautiful View straight out across open fields, it is set apart from the other gites, which we liked & we loved the use of the BBQ & outside area.
A little piece of heaven! We have already booked to go back for 2 weeks next year & we can't wait!!! I would recommend 1000%!!

Thank you for being our guests and we look forward to seeing you next year. The "most beautiful" view from the gite, Le Pigeonnier is an ever changing feature. Always interesting; always beautiful, but different in every season.

“Rural and Restful”
Reviewed 15 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

person found this review helpful

Set amid open fields with views to surrounding farms, this property is beautiful.
The owners are helpful and hospitable.
Le Pigeonnier is a self contained part of a bigger gite.
It's a self contained with a pleasant, well appointed kitchen diner downstairs together with a rather tight but nicely appointed shower room/ toilet.
Upstairs is a very comfortable bed with sitting area and small balcony. This space is also the TV area.
Linen is provided and is beautifully presented.
A generous welcome basket was provided for we weary travellers.
Be aware that late in the season this part of France can be cold at night.....if you like warmth, you will need to negotiate the heating costs.....We were lucky, the weather was warm.

“Exactly as advertised, and more”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We chose La Richardiere purely via Google and a look at the property website - we happened to come across it on the internet when searching for places to stay near La Brenne (wildlife area) and it met all our needs and more. Nothing disappointed us. Great place, great hosts. Peace and tranquillity, quiet local walks, lovely villages as always, but some great days out too. A good base for birdwatching in La Brenne. France at its best.
