What a beautiful gite, tastefully renovated to offer the best of French style and the best of English home comforts. We really enjoyed our (too short) stay and plan to go back next year in the Summer. The owners are really friendly and helpful too.

About the neighbourhood
The local villages of Parcay les Pins, Gizeux and Vernoil have a range of amenities including boulangeries, bars and an excellent supermarket. The Musee Jules Desbois in Parcay les Pins is dedicated to the famous sculptor who was born in the village. The bar next door which takes his name is a typical French bar but serves good value food at lunch and dinner. Although not close to the coast there are plenty of choices for swimming too - the many natural lakes in the area have beaches and safe swimming areas which have lifeguards in the peak summer months. Canoe hire and organised trips are available throughout the region and the Loire-a Velo cycle path criss crosses the area offering many safe and scenic cycle routes. The local villages of Gizeux and Breil boast impressive chateaux with extensive gardens.
Getting around
It is a perfect area to cycle with many signed and well marked cycle routes. You do need a car as La Croix is located in a rural area which provides the peace and quiet for you to really relax.
