A bit of French country paradise!

Pot de Vert is even better than its fabulous web description. Every convenience is provided to the guests! The location is ideal; if you wish to have a retreat from the world, you can do that here-if you wish to combine country living with access to Orleans and Paris, you can have that here-if you wish to visit historic sites and engage French history, you can do that here.
The owners could not have been more helpful. As I developed a medical problem, they eased the situation with helpful advice and assistance. The cottage is full of travel guides and maps and the owners are happy to provide additional suggestions.
I would, and intend to, recommend this property to family and friends. We hope to return ourselves!
We enjoyed visiting chateaus, ancient ruins, the Loire Valley cities, a Gregorian Chant mass at a small church that contains the bones of Saint Benedict, and even a day trip to Paris. Food in all the restaurants we tried were excellent. There is a nice Sunday Market in St. Jean de Braye, and I enjoyed playing Julia Childs a few times.
Bon Voyage!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your nice review, I'm so glad that in spite of this rest due to medical reasons , you'll have good memories of your stay in le Pot Vert .
Please comeback some day again !

Ein verwunschenes Häuschen in einem Park, ein Pool daneben, der Kühlschrank schon bei Ankunft gefüllt mit Leckereien und wundervolle Gastgeber, was kann man mehr von einem Urlaub erwarten? In der Umgebung jede Menge Sehenswürdigkeiten (mein Favorit: Die Kirche von Germigny-des-Prés), schöne Restaurants (gut und günstig: Les Toqués direkt an der Loire) und sehenswerte Städte. Das Haus hat unsere Erwartungen noch übertroffen. Hinfahren!
Owner's Response: Vielen Dank Chris for our 1st review in German !

A beautiful French holiday home

This was our first family trip to France and it could not have been more perfect accommodation. The house and garden are very beautiful and comfortable. We all loved using the pool during the gloriously hot weather. It was a relaxing and peaceful place to stay where all you might need has been provided, including the gorgeous fresh and larder food (and wine!) on arrival and stamps. Frederique and her family were friendly and helpful throughout. Many thanks indeed for giving us such a memorable holiday.
Owner's Response: Thank you Sally, I'm glad that you'll have good memories upon your Pot Vert Stay for your 1st family trip in France .
Hoping to seing you back some day again ,
Kind regards,
Frederique .

Wonderful Stay

My wife and I and two friends stayed at "Le Pot Vert" for a week in May and it was everything we could have hoped for . When we arrived Frederique had stocked the shelves and the refrigerator, there was even a bottle of wine waiting for us. It was cool and rainy during our stay and we made good use of the fireplace in the evenings. The cottage is well located for visits to the chateaus and sites of Loire. We also enjoyed relaxing days at the cottage with a walk to one of the bakeries for breakfast in the morning and a visit to the local crepe shop just a 1/4 mile away. If you are looking to experience France and French hospitality this is a great way to do it. Thanks again Frederique and Remy and we hope to see you again. We will never forget how you saved us during the "wine outage" on the unexpected Bank Holiday give Valentine a scratch for us.

Owner's Response: Many tanks for your nice review Mike and Marlys, hoping that after here, you had very good sunny time in Burgundy !
Hoping to seing you back in Le Pot Vert... some day.
Kind regards,

So French!

My husband & I and my daughter and her fiance spent 5 nights in this beautiful cottage. We loved the coziness and all of the amenities. We were greeted by Frederique upon arrival. She also had the fridge fully stocked for us! She was our personal concierge in making dinner reservations as well. The entire property is beautiful -- the gardens spectacular -- the cottage is very quaint. The location is very central to Sancerre, the castles, chateaus and Paris. We had a delightful time!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review, I'm glad that you had a good time in spite of an unusual rainy weather ,the sun is back this week ! Hoping to seeing you again some day , here or ...in California ?

The name of Orleans is inseparably linked with that of Joan of Arc and there is evidence of her everywhere: in satues, her life history depicted in the cathedral's stained glass windows, the house where she stayed in 1429. The city, on the beautiful and wild River Loire, is also the centre of its own wine producing area and the town has more than enough to keep a visitor happy, in particular the old part, which has many fine buildings. Some of the greatest chateaux of the Loire are within reasonable driving distance and the cottage is ideally placed for a day in Paris or Versailles. Fontainebleau on the outskirts of Paris is only 85 kms. Chartres magnificent cathedral is 70 kms.

Other Activities: Many historic places to visit : the great Loire chateaux, etc

Golf: 8 golf courses in the area.
