The photos don't do this place justice. It's a beautifully presented and brilliantly appointed gite in such a peaceful part of the Loire valley. The owners are extremely welcoming and warm, yet not intrusive at all. Wine tasting in the winery next door was a great experience. Such a relaxing stay with our 9 month old. Definitely recommend.

Management response:

Thank you for your very kind review. We would love for you to visit us again.

My husband and I stayed at L'Ecurie with our two young children (aged 5 and 1) in August 2016. Aside from the beautiful weather and stunning setting our stay was made perfect by the gite and all that it offered. The living space is incredibly bright and spacious, extremely well considered and maintained. The bedrooms are beautiful and everything you...

Management response:

Thank you so much and look forward to seeing you later this year.

We were greeted upon arrival at this beautiful gite by the owners who live in the farmhouse next door. It was spotlessly clean, very well equipped, in excellent condition and to a high standard. We were even provided with some essential food items and a bottle of the local wine, to see us through the first Sunday evening and breakfast!...

About the neighbourhood
Rural and tranquil, your stay will be relaxing but ideally located if you want a more lively day out, with a small local theme park just 10 mins drive away and the larger parks, Puy du Fou and Futuroscope, within easy reach. In addition, one of Europe's best zoos is in Doue La Fontaine (20 mins drive). If you like to swim, Thouars (20 mins drive) has a fantastic indoor and outdoor pool with slides, shoots and beach volley ball. There are two other outdoor pools close by. Or perhaps you would prefer a day at the beach - La Rochelle and many of the beautiful seaside towns along the Vendee coast also within easy reach.
