“Quaint and Centrally Located”
Reviewed 15 November 2012 for a stay in May 2011

We stayed 4 days at "The Barn" during the 6th leg of our 6-week, self-drive European vacation. We wanted to be centrally located to visit the many castles in the area. The converted Barn was nicely decorated and had all the amenities we wanted. It was very quaint and romantic with private patio and small orchard with cherry trees and other.
We had been sent instructions from the owner in England as to location of the keys and directions to the house of the person in town we could contact in case there were any problems. We had also been given the name of the housekeeper who lived in another village, but none of that really helped. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and all seemed pretty deserted. The key was where it was supposed to be and we entered with no problem. However, the water had been shut off for some reason and we could not figure out how to turn it on, nor could we reach the person in the area for help. We had to disturb a very friendly neighbor across the street (tending his garden) and ask him to help us find the telephone number of the housekeeper who lived in a nearby village. Once reaching the housekeeper (after about an hour of searching) she gave us the directions on how to turn on the water supply. After we got that problem corrected, we took our bags upstairs only to find linens on the bed for US to make up. I have NEVER paid for a cottage or hotel room at such a high rate and had to make up our own bed!
Needless to say, we were not pleased with our sparse to non-existent reception and having to make up our own bed upon arrival. (We even had to pay extra for the sheets to be provided, but had no idea we'd have to make up the bed also.) The proximity to the castles in the Loire Vally were ideal for us, but upon returning after a day of sightseeing, we were met with a kitchen full of ants.
Overall, we enjoyed the area and the Barn, but unless the owner provides better reception for their guests, I'm not sure I would recommend it to others.

We are pleased to hear our guests liked the cottage; we have recently installed a new kitchen and this is one of our most popular cottages (we have six cottages all our own). We are sorry to hear our guests felt unwelcome on arrival - we have a very good local lady, and she does try and visit all our guests; but she is in the next village and it is difficult to be there at the time of arrival. Guests are sent a very comprehensive advance pack with information about water - it is turned off between guests as we don't want anything to go wrong, there is information about how to turn it on. Linen can be included in the price of a holiday rather than additional, of course the cost to us is in the laundry so we give guests the option of bringing their own linen. It is helpful to hear guests views about how we present the bedding, we pride ourselves in the comfort of our beds and have received many positive comments.
