Dawn Cater purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Dawn Cater chose Saint-Rémy-sur-Creuse
The property is in the lovely peaceful village of St.Remy sur Creuse, the house and the Gites have lots of original features and character but have been modernised to give you all the home comforts you will be used to. We fell in love with the river at the end of our garden which is ideal for fishing, picnics or just relaxing.
What makes this Cottage unique
The river at the end of our garden which is ideal for fishing, picnics or just relaxing, also the unique situation of the property being in a lovely traditional country village but with towns, shops, bars, restaurants, banks etc within a short distanced drive. An ideal mix of rural countryside with access to all the amenities you could need.

Lovely little house by the river
Had a wonderful week at la glycine with great weather. This lovely little farmhouse is very well equipped with everything you need and very clean. Dawn and john are very accommodating and extremely friendly, would highly recommend this property for a restful stay by the riverside and its lovely big garden. A big thank you to Dawn and john for the lovely welcome pack on our arrival.
Lovely gite, well equipped and comfortable with an amazing riverside garden.
The gite is pretty, comfortable and very well equipped. Our two young girls loved the fantastic garden leading down to the river Creuse, and the friendly chickens! The gite is located in an attractive village with a nice cafe and some interesting caves to visit only a few minutes stroll away. We also visited Chenonceau, Chinon and a lake beach, all less than an hour's drive. Dawn was a great host, welcoming and helpful. We hope to return!
Tranquil Holiday Home In Touraine
Clean, comfortable well equipped property with friendly on site owners. Well located in the countryside to the south of Tours, close to the wine route and the motorway network a few kilometres away allows for easy access.
Nice and quiet stay
A relaxing 3 days in a very clean cozy cottage. Nice and comfortable upstairs room for the kids. We couldn't enjoy the garden and river banks due to the rain, but this was an enjoyable countryside break. Owners very welcoming and nice. A place we would easily come back to.
Séjour agréable, calme et reposant.
Un gîte très propre et bien aménagé avec un joli jardin au bord de la Creuse. Les propriétaires sont très agréables, dommage qu'ils ne parlent pas français, la barrière de la langue ne nous a pas permis de communiquer.
Un petit reproche malgré tout, c'est que sur l'annonce Abritel, la photo du gîte ne fait pas état que l'autre aile du bâtiment est un autre gîte et il y a trop de proximité entre les deux et pas vraiment d'intimité ; heureusement que les autres locataires, anglais eux aussi, étaient très sympathiques et non bruyants. Là encore, barrière de la langue, dommage. Il suffirait juste de mettre des bacs ou des pots avec des arbustes pour avoir un semblant d'intimité.
Sinon très bon séjour, calme et reposant.
Como en casa
Nos alojamos en la casita que nos proporcionaron John y Dawn Carter durante una semana, es un lugar muy cuidado y con todo lujo de detalles para hacer la estancia cómoda como si estuvieras en tu propia casa.
Gracias John y Dawn por vuestras atenciones y hospitalidad.
