Great Gite, Great owners

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped Gite in a nice location with a lovely big enclosed garden - ideal for a dog to explore, as ours did! The Gite is well kept and has everything you need for your time away. Agnes and Clive are excellent hosts. Very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable about all aspects of our stay, from where to shop to what the region had to offer. We hope to return soon!

Quiet and peaceful break

  • 4 of 5

We had very pleasant stay here for two weeks, the gite is well equipped and comfortable, the only thing I could ask for would be a dishwasher! The garden grounds are beautiful and our two small dogs had plenty of room to run around. Valencay is close by and has a good supermarket, pharmacies and a few restaurants. Within easy reach of some of the main Chateaux in the region and the owners gave us lots of helpful tips on places to visit as well. Great place for a relaxed, chill out break!

Tranquil location step away from local attractions

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in this property - my wife , myself and two dogs. This is very pleasant , cosy and clean accommodation located in charming , rural France. There is a vast , well maintained garden in this property ,where you can seat and relax with a glass of wine. Don't have to mention it was paradise for dogs too- specially our little naughty Frenchy. It is within less than one hour drive from all important attractions of Loire Valley- Tours, Blois, Ambois, Bourges and its most famous Chateaux. Chateau Valencay is 15 minutes away. The roads are well maintained and we enjoyed driving through little French villages surrounded by vineyards. The wine cellars are almost everywhere , and you can taste very good reds and whites ( even better) accompanied by local cheese.

Our hosts Agnes and Clive made our stay very pleasant and always ready to give us precious advice on local attractions , places worth visiting as well as dining options. Following their advice we visited Auberge Saint Fiacre in Veuil- it was awesome three hours culinary journey through incredible French cuisine.

Our overall impression of this place- accommodation , tourist attractions,food, hosts' hospitality and the charm of rural France was so great that we would eagerly come back in future.

What a wonderful stay in a great property

  • 5 of 5

Wow, a warm and friendly greeting from the owners at this lovely and secluded property. I was impressed with the facilities in the gite as we wanted for nothing. The kitchen was well equipped and every room had everything I needed, including mirrors, coat hangers etc. Scenery outstanding and lots of wonderful places to visit nearby. We would return in a heartbeat. Thank you Mr and Mrs Gilbert for making our stay so special and one to remember.
