“Best place we've stayed in so far”
Reviewed 6 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We thought this accommodation was superb. It was fitted out well and fully equipped. The location is perfect as a base for Loire Valley exploring. Having English speaking, friendly but not imposing, hosts was a massive advantage to us. It is very child friendly and safe with lots of onsite entertainment for them. If the Loire wasn't so inviting, we could have just spent a week onsite! The online photos don't really do it justice. This is one of those rare properties that I believe looks better in the flesh.

“Welcoming gite near Saumur”
Reviewed 1 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We loved La Grange!

There were four of us, two adults and two young children. My wife and I appreciated the space, well-appointed kitchen and showers (there is also a bath). The children loved the table football, the swimming pool and the cosy bedroom in the eaves!

You get the sun streaming in at both ends of the day and there is a patio with a picnic table overlooking a large garden (living in London, I'd say shockingly large!) which has some swings, a slide, a climbing frame and den which pleased our girls.

All in all, a lovely base to explore this end of the Loire valley and, as a bonus, Judy and Mark are welcoming and friendly hosts.

Only small word of warning is that WiFi connection in the gite is hit and miss, best connection is outside but given some sunshine that's not a real issue.

We'd definitely recommend La Grange.

Management Response
14 Sep 2013
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday in La Grange. It was good to see you arrive with all your bikes on the roof, ready to check out our quiet tracks. We have been struggling with wifi expanders for years in an attempt to push internet through the very thick walls of La Grange. It is a little too late for you for which we apologise profoundly, but they have at last invented a system that passes a signal along the mains allowing a wifi hotspot to be created at the far end end within La Grange itself. This is a slightly technical way of explaining that we are at last able to solve the problem of intermittent wifi! Next time you come here we are sure you will be greatly pleased by the improvement.

“Excellent holiday villa for family visiting the Loire Valley.”
Reviewed 7 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Excellent quality house with great rural views, and high quality furnishing and kitchen equipment. Friendly and welcoming owner, very good swimming pool with excellent quality water, perfect for children. My grandchildren loved the Game Room.

“A comfortable, warm gite to return to after several wet days sightseeing.”
Reviewed 17 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

The owners of the gite were very friendly and helpful. The booking process and general information was prompt and efficient. The well-equipped gite itself was in a pleasant, calm setting and provided plenty of space for 5 adults. The location in the Loire, close to Saumur was excellent and for nearby day to day needs Allonnes provides enough individual shops and a supermarket. It is a reasonable distance to drive to many of the chateaux and other interesting towns and attractions. As we were there in a cool, rather wet week we were looking for places to visit that provided a certain amount of cover and shelter from the weather. This we managed to find without having to travel too far. The two youngest members of our group spent a day in Angers, catching the train from Saumur. They were able to explore the town and managed to find a nice restaurant for lunch to celebrate their wedding anniversary.
Additional equipment that we would have liked to find in the kitchen were an ovenproof casserole dish and measuring jug, as we cooked most of our evening meals ourselves. An electric kettle would have speeded up tea making.
As far as the bedrooms/bathrooms were concerned. it was wonderful that each bedroom had its own en suite, but the upstairs bedroom with a bath/shower is possibly more suitable for children because of the sloping ceiling in both of these rooms. Although a Wifi signal is available in the downstairs bedroom, it is very limited in the living room.
All in all, a very pleasant holiday, enjoyed by all our party.

“Beautiful home from home”
Reviewed 26 April 2012 for a stay in March 2012

Although we didn't escape the British weather, our spring holidayu in the Loire valley was made more pleasurable by the quality of this gite. Although part of a small complex, we were totally separate with an uninterupted view to the sunsets in the west, our own garden and electronic gates sealing us off from prying eyes.
The accommodation is well - and thoughtfully planned out, with each bedroom being en-suite and the downstairs double bedroom and en-suite wetroom having been made as disabled friendly with good wide doors and plenty of room. Having just had a hip replacement, this was particularly useful for me.
The surrounding area is typically French, with one of the national forests to the north of us and the picturesque Loire valley with it's many Chateaus and vineyards to the south. Even with the somewhat British weather, we were able to tour around and take in some lovely sights.
A final mention for our hosts, Mark and Judy Porter. They made us feel really welcome and were always available with suggestions for trips and visits when we pestered them!
