Guestbook comments from the manager
We are so enjoying our stay in Maison Doiseau – walnut tree in courtyard and cottage covered in flowering Wisteria and all to a high standard in character. Thank you. Restaurants de Bellevue in Montrichard excellent menu terroir €26 fantastic value didn’t try the €38 or €52; Cheval Rouge was fully booked and also Delice de Mets in St Georges was good but wise to book.

I am a private owner living in England but who loves France and the way of life. John and I visit the cottages several times a year to ensure all is going well and to have a lovely time there ourselves and with our family. I spend a lot of time painting while I am there and John looks after the maintenance. We are both retired doctors though when we bought the cottages we were very busy now we have more time to enjoy our lovely home.

Ann Palmer purchased this cottage in 1989

John and I bought this lovely farmstead soon after we moved to the south of England; we wanted somewhere for our family to visit within easy reach of home. We chose Vrigny as it is in the country but not isolated and it is close to Chenonceau our favourite chateau, it is central for visiting all the castles in the Loire Valley and also the vineyards, our local wines are so good and being so close to the vineyards we can participate in the vendange (harvest). We developed the propeorty over the years; the 3 cottages are independent and you can enjoy your own space, there is also the advantqage you will meet some really interesting people - or bring oyur friends and share two or three cottages together.

We love our home in Vrigny because it is close to the river and vineyards; it has a lovely large garden in which we grow fruit for everyone to enjoy, and we can sit in the courtyard and relax and let the world go by. Even better when we do decide to go out we are so close to Chenonceau (the most visited chateau after Versailles) that we have bought ourselves season tickets so we can enjoy the lovely grounds and beautiful setting as often as possible, The lovely walks in the vineyards and along the river really enhance any trip (it is possible to walk right along to Chenonceau and further to Blere or in the other direction to Montrichard and St Aignean). We have a market to choose from every day of hte week and our local restaurants are very very good. We enjoy exploring the lovely wineries and have closen some of hte best around to put on a list for our visitors. We will bombard you with information to help you enjoy your stay in our cottages.

Owner's Response: Thank you. Maison Doiseau is a comfortable family home for those on holiday; and is ideal for two couples as well as those with children. Our Madame goes in after every guest to ensure the cottage is ready for our next guests. There is a large orchard garden, we are close to vineyards and river so great for walks or cycle rides. Our cottage is situated only 10 minutes drive from Chenonceaux, and is well located for the Loire Valley chateaux such as Amboise, Chambord, Villandry, Azay-le-Rideau. We are also in the heart of wine country and it is fun to go tasting.

Fantastic and homely cottage

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful time in Maison Doiseau for many reasons. On arrival we felt immediately at home as the house is equipped with everything you could think of needing. Ann had sent us such precise and detailed information about the property, the surrounding area and what to expect that we were at ease immediately. We had no questions and no problems as everything was so clear and straightforward. The kitchen has dried food stuffs in the cupboards so we had no need to panic about not having the basics for cooking. This was a real gam changer!

The house is excellently located and we had a wonderful time exploring the Loire valley. We made full use of the bicycles in the garage and this made for some lovely bike rides throng the vineyards. We would recommend visiting the winery of Antoine Simoneau very nearby for some fun wine tasting and for delicious white wine we went to Vouvray to Domaine Jean-Claude et Didier Aubert.

Although this house is fantastic, I feel I should explain my 4* rating. The decorations of the house is rather outdated. This did not affect our stay at all and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxed break either in a small group of friends (as we were) or a family, however, if you set looking for a modern newly renovated house then this is not the house. I would however say that when renting, it is rather nice not to have to worry about being somewhere pristine and characterless and walking around on tip toes so it was perfect for us!

Thank you Ann for such a fantastic trip. Our holiday wouldn't have been the same!

Owner's Response: Thank you Alice, so pleased you enjoyed the cottage so much, and glad the information was so useful. The decorations are of course in keeping with the period of the cottage which is rustic with stained beams. Furnishings and carpets have been replaced this year. We do want people to feel at home, indeed this is our home in France, we spend three months of the year here ourselves. We hope others will enjoy their stay as much - Ann and John

Wonderful inviting property!

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely stay at Maison Doiseau. It was a great location for experiencing the chateaux of The Loire Valley. The cottage was well equipped with everything you could possibly need. It was very clean and easy to access with the directions given and our GPS system. We would certainly visit again.

Owner's Response: Many thanks! This cottage is great for families because we have a large garden an also are a stones throw from the open vineyards so great walks! Locally we have the zoo at Beauval, the Aquarium at Amboise, and good play facilities at the Chateau in Chenonceau. This cottage and the neighbouring Maison de la Grandmere have childrens beds, cots and high chairs. Great for families. Ann

Owner's Response: Many thanks we are so pleased you have enjoyed your stay in our cottage; we particularly wanted to offer a well equipped kitchen and this one has a double oven, 6 burners, two sinks, a dishwasher and washing machine as well as a fridge freezer. We also have a wood burning stove so this cottage is great all the year round.
