PERFECT RENTAL IN THE LOIRE VALLEY

  • 5 of 5
When we pulled into Noizay village and noticed the beautiful manor house on the hill, we couldn't believe our GPS was leading us to it. Even more perfect was the stone "guest house" next to the manor where we spent 6 idyllic days. The downstairs was open and airy and we let the huge French doors stay open half the time to bring in the breeze and make it easy to access the patio - it felt like true, indoor/outdoor living. The upstairs master bedroom was extremely comfortable and all of the facilities were top notch ... there was even a heated towel rack! Noizay might not be a terribly exciting village but the house is within easy driving distance to Amboise (great restaurants) and Vouvray (excellent wine) and you can make day trips to nearly all of the region's chateaux easily from here. If you like walking, don't miss out on the town's two walking trails (13km and 16km) that leave from both the front and back edges of the property and take you on beautiful rambles through the vineyards. I think we walked some part of these trails every evening after dinner. The house is a gem and so were Claude and Francine. Incredibly kind and welcoming, they even gave us a tour of the large manor house and the wine cellar - the old press was amazing! Our three-year-old loved the big yard with the slide and kids' toys. For our family of five, this was an amazing experience and we would love to return. Merci beaucoup, Claude et Francine, pour un sejour tres tres agreable!!

AMAZING HOME WITH BEAUTIFUL VIEW OF VINEYARD.

  • 5 of 5
Le Clos de Venise is a wonderful vacation property. We were absolutely impressed with the house and the property. It sits in a beautiful area that allows you to explore the Loire Valley. The owners Francine and Claude are wonderful hosts and even shared wine and homemade jam with us. They live next door but are never intrusive but are there if needed to ask any questions. They were kind enough to loan us two bikes and we had a lovely time riding in the vineyards above the property. Prior to booking the house I e-mailed them many times and they were always very helpful and quick to respond. We rent homes in Europe 1-2 times each year and this was by far one of my favorite properties. I hope we can return in the future. The house is modern and everything is in amazing condition. We enjoyed cooking in each evening in the well stocked kitchen. The bedrooms are all lovely and the bathrooms are nice size and the linens provided were great. The outside area has a nice table to enjoy the sun going down over a bottle of local wine.

This is a perfect location for planning day trips to all the surrounding Chateaux's and wineries. We visited so many I lost track after the 5th day. The house is an easy drive to Amboise for lunch or shopping and the town is adorable. We went there a few times just for the ambiance and local items needed for cooking in. The Loire Valley is beautiful and we had days filled with sunshine and some rain but the leaves changing colors on the vines were my favorite part of visiting in November.

Thank you for a memorable stay in your lovely home.

5/5, 10/10, 100/100!..... Gorgeous house, very kind and generous hosts!... So idyllic. We were made to feel very welcome with our 3 very young children into a very special house. You just have to come and visit to see it AND see all the other things to do in the Loire..

AMAZING VACATION DESTINATION!

  • 5 of 5
Le Clos de Venise is an amazing vacation destination and "home base" to explore the Loire Valley. First, Francine and Claude are wonderful hosts. The help they provided prior to and during our stay was exceptional. In addition, the warmth and feeling of being welcome is something no hotel/resort/B&B, I have stayed at, can match (having lived in two (2) countries overseas and having visited 35 others many times: net, net: lots of hotels). Now, the house and surrounding property is amazing. No words and or photos do it justice. The house is modern and has everything one would need. The property/vineyard is 'story book'. This is a great location for planning day trips to all the surrounding Chateaux's. It is an easy drive (or taxi ride) to Amboise for dinner and or entertainment. That being said, Le Clos de Venise, provides every reason not to want to leave.

Le Clos de Venise is a destination we will return to in the future. Until then, a lot of photos, videos, and memories to reflect upon. Note: This is one great place Rick Steves has yet to discover in France yet...... (I hope). :-))

SÉJOUR DE RÊVE

  • 5 of 5
La propriété est magnifique, tout à fait conforme aux photos. Tout est confortable et décoré avec goût et un souci du détail. L'endroit est très paisible. Les propriétaires sont très sympathiques et très accueillants. Les principaux sites de visite sont accessibles en peu de temps. Les principaux commerces sont à moins de 15 minutes en voiture. Les moutons et le vignoble ajoutent au charme de l'endroit.

Merci beaucoup de votre appréciation. Nous sommes ravis que vous ayez apprécié votre séjour au clos de Venise. Ce fut un plaisir pour nous de vous recevoir avec vos charmants enfants et d'échanger sur les histoires respectives de nos pays (nous savons maintenant que Montcalm était nimois !). N'hésitez pas à revenir une autre année, vous serez les bienvenus.

SIMPLY THE BEST

  • 5 of 5
The photos simply do not do this place justice - it is even more impressive in the flesh. The quality of fixtures and fittings, the attention to detail in every aspect of the layout and construction and the simple elegance of the colour scheme elevate Clos de Venise to the very top. We have stayed in many excellent properties via Homeaway in France but this is the best by a considerable margin. OK it's not cheap but our week was the same cost as a caravan in Great Yarmouth in England for the same period - puts it in perspective.
The location of the house again does not come across fully in the pictures - the views out over the Loire from the terraced garden and from above the vineyard at the back of the house - and from the master bedroom window, have to be seen in person to be fully appreciated.
Everything was forensically clean and the kitchen a joy to use (not always the case in France). The beds were sumptuous, the linens cossetting and the showers commodious.
For everything else, the owners Claude and Francine were the perfect hosts. On hand if needed but discreetly absent when not. Their unobtrusive and understated charm was a delight and their love of the house (not to mention the wine produced from the grapes around it) was evident at all times. They made us feel very much at home and welcome - and the cherries picked by Francine from the trees in the garden were perfectly delicious.
Plenty to do and see in the Loire of course but the local area repays exploration on foot and by bike to get a feel for the real heartbeat of France. Excellent market in neighbouring Vernou on Thursday mornings and a boulangerie worth invading the country for! Plus a very well stocked Super U for other requisites. Sunday morning market in Amboise also well worth a visit but get there early- incredible variety of produce all top quality and inexpensive.
The house was well stocked with local guides and other interesting books on the region so you would not be lost for a day out. Chaumont and Chambord stand out however but the gentle charms of the smaller villages should not be overlooked - and the Cave des Producteurs in Montlouis to stock up your cellar.
We fully intend to return to sample the region at different times of the year in the complete certainty that Clos de Venise will still be as welcoming and comfortable as it was first time. A million "mercis" to Francine and Claude for an absolute stunner of a property.
