“Pure bliss - the place to excape
Having stayed in many holiday cottages, this is definitely the one to
benchmark all the others! The gite is very well presented, is extremely well
equipped and maintained to the highest standards The secret to this
excellence is clearly the two donkeys that are ever-present and well supervised
by Norman the cat who appears just like the proverbial Genie. The is also a guy
called Andrew who was very welcoming and will always appear if you pop a
cork! It was our first visit to the Loire region and there is so much to
see we shall definitely be returning to continue our explorations. The only
problem is that the gite is so relaxing its almost too much trouble to venture
out, its perfect to relax in and well placed to explore a very interesting
region, with lots of excellent restaurants and endless vineyards to
sample. We would highly recommend a stay here.
2012“Fantastic gite in beautiful surroundings”
A large gite in a very rural
location surrounded by beautiful countryside, birds and wildlife. It's well
equipped with plenty of space for the kids, with the added attraction of Samson
and Zeus, plus of course the ever present Norman! There are a selection of bikes
for the use of the guests, as well as space to play badminton, basketball, etc.
The owner, Andrew (Jackie was away), was incredibly accommodating and a
wonderful host and it was nice to share a drink two with him and chat about life
in France. We would definitely recommend this property and look forward to
returning next year!
07 Aug 2012“Simply beautiful, spacious and almost
Myself, Sandie and our two children 11 and 7 travelled from
Dublin. This was our first time in a Gite so to be honest we didn't fully know
what to expect. Warmly welcomed by Andrew & Jackie, we were shown around our
gite and can only say that we were delighted far beyond our expectations. It had
everything we needed for an ideal Loire Valley base. Simply beautiful, spacious
and almost too comfortable! It's a great location for access to Saumur and
numerous lovely rural towns like Montreuil Bellay and Le Puis de Notre Dame. The
zoo at Doue la Fontaine was good fun, as are the numerous chateaux and wine
tasting experiences. There are very nice restaurants to be found in the
surrounding towns. We did sample a couple in our week there but invariably we
found ourselves looking forward to getting back to the gite, light the barbecue
and soak up the evening sun in the garden. I would highly recommend a stay
“A really wonderful Gite in a very convenient
A lovely gite, comfortable and spacious.The location was perfect
for visiting many of the sight seeing spots in the Loire valley. Thanks to
Andrew and Jackie for a very warm welcome and for arranging the wine tasting
session for us at a local vineyard. A perfect holiday!
18 Aug 2011“Beyond
We organised our trip at the last moment and have never
tried the 'gite experience' before with our young family - we were definitely
pleasantly surprised. Andrew and Jackie were very welcoming and made us feel
very much at home. The gite was very spacious and immaculately clean. Our
daughter particularly enjoyed the outside space with the sandpit and of course
the donkeys. The gite was also very well located allowing us to explore the
local area. The zoo is an absolute must and we also enjoyed visiting chateaus
and local markets. We will certainly be returning!
2011“Lovely, relaxing & peaceful”
A beautiful gite surrounded by
sunflower fields and vineyards. From the moment we arrived we loved this place
and we did not want to leave. Comfortable and clean with modern decor and
facilities, you will not be disappointed. Our hosts gave us a really warm
welcome, as did the donkeys! A trip to the zoo at Doue Le Fountaine is a must as
is the Chateaux at Chenonceaux.
