Good Location, but a few shortcomings

  • 3 of 5
The property is ideally located for touring the Chateaux of the Loire. When we first used the dishwasher it failed; we immediately notified the owner on the 18th and he finally had an engineer visit (after an exchange of many emails) on the 28th. So we had no dishwasher. Despite the owners instructions to users, we found the gas BBQ was very dirty and had to be cleaned before we could use it. The clothes drier is situated in a workshop in one of the caves: access is round a huge pile of earth and through a door that has not been cleaned for years. The area around the drier is filthy. It needs cleaning up and then it would become quite useable.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately it proved diificult to arrange for our cleaning lady to be available on a day that a service engineer could visit as the client was understandably unwilling to wait in all day (7 hour visit slot!). The dishwasher has now been replaced. The dryer is in a cave and I agree that the area could do with a spruce up - point noted. The pile of earth is left to discourage people from walking under the place where it occasionally drops from the cliff above - rural France! We are sorry that these issues detracted from Mr T's enjoyment of the prpoerty.

A Fantastic Find!!

  • 5 of 5
Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed the use of this beautiful house. It's location is ideal, completely secluded but still near to shops, bars and restaurants (L'Aubergade Restaurant in Gennes is a must).

The house itself has all the modern facilities you'd expect whilst still retaining it's "old world" charm. A fabulous place to relax and enjoy the good food and wine of the area.

No better base to explore the Loire

  • 5 of 5
We've just returned from this very charming cottage after a relaxing two-week break. There were seven of us staying, including Granny, Grandad, Mum, Dad, Son (17) and two Daughters (11 and 4).

The secluded patio with its intriguing caves - old Troglodyte dwellings? - makes a lovely place to have breakfast, brunch, lunch, or a barbie! The cottage itself is a great mixture of the original beams and modern convenience, with a fairly recent extension housing the well-equipped kitchen and bathroom at one end, and a much older extension at the other with dining room, bedrooms and another bathroom upstairs, en-suite to the master. The original part of the cottage is the central living room, and character is in abundance here with the inglenook fireplace and low ceiling. Above this is a central area with a sofa-bed and entertainment area for the kids - if at all bored at any time. Altogether ample space for seven or eight to sleep, eat and relax. There was even a games room in another outbuilding, although it appeared this hadn't been used for a while and the facilities were in disrepair. The only other thing that could have been improved were the mattresses on the double beds.

The immediate area had a fairly 'well to do' feel about it. Very pleasant. There are some excellent restaurants and boulangeries to cater for your needs as well as a useful supermarket if you should want to cook.

The Loire is famous for it's chateaux - and we did visit a few, as well as an excellent zoo and a small lake with it's own little beach! It was nice to have such a relaxing place to come back to after all the adventures we had.

Owner's Response: The matresses on the double beds are being replaced in May 2012. The games room will also get a spring-clean and check-up then. It does get a bit dusty being in an outbuilding but the ping pong table is only three years old.

Top Marks!

We spent a wonderful week here at the beginning of June. The children loved the garden, with its caves, woodland and games room. They spent hours exploring! The house had real character too.
The cottage is in a central location for many attractions with good roads to get to places. There's a very convenient supermarket in Gennes.
We would totally recommend this property.
