Magnifique gîte

  • 5 of 5

Très beau gîte, propre et très bien décoré,vraiment charmant. Il est aussi très bien situé, près de tout, boulangerie-pâtisserie , épicerie, charcuterie. Très près de Tours, Amboise etc. Il est adjacent à la maison des propriétaires qui étaient absolument gentils, discrets ainsi que disponibles au besoin. Il y a aussi un beau jardin ou l’on pouvait relaxer après notre journée. Je recommande cet endroit sans réserve. Merci pour tout Martine et Philippe

Wonderful retreat near Tours

  • 5 of 5

This property was lovely, beautiful and peaceful. We stayed in a house on the property (the owners' home is just next door). The house we stayed in was very nicely appointed, with everything we needed. The owner was close by and available for any questions. This was a great spot, with a boulangerie and charcuterie just steps away and easy access to local attractions. Really enjoyed our stay here.

At Home in the Heart of Touraine

  • 5 of 5

Our month-long stay at Le Pavilion de la Lanterne in Rochecorbon could not have been more delightful. We arrived in mid-April to witness the gradual emergence of the foliage in this snug valley along the Loire River. This was the ideal starting point for exploring the sights in the Touraine and beyond. The cottage has been carefully renovated and equipped with every modern convenience. Our hosts were gracious and generous in their attention to our requests. We especially appreciated the spacious private parking and beautiful gardens of the property. What greater compliment than to say we were sad to have to leave?

A really enjoyable week

  • 4 of 5

Although the weather could have been a little hotter we still really enjoyed the week, some of it spent locally and some of it visiting the nearby attractions. We particularly enjoyed our trips upstream to Amboise and Blois and also downstream as well as to Loche and Chinon. There are lots of lovely chateaux and villages to see. The holiday cottage was spotlessly clean and well equipped on one side of the large garden away from the main house. Thank you Martine for letting us stay in your lovely holiday cottage.

Comfortable, clean, spacious, nice location

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable cottage, clean when we arrived, very spatious for family of five. Good location for visiting Loire castles, villages, cities and wineries. Boulangerie and some restaurants are on walking distance. The gite is next to the house of the owners.
