Lovely house in a peaceful spot
We stayed here for a week and found the house a peaceful and cosy base for our family and friends. It's spacious and tastefully decorated and has all the mod cons you could want - cable TV, internet, central heating. We wanted to explore the vineyards of Sancerre and Pouilly nearby, which were only half an hour by car, so in that respect it's perfectly positioned. The town of Chateuneuf is very small so it's in a quiet and peaceful spot, but should you need croissants there's a bakery 2 minutes away. For the price we found this excellent value and would consider coming back when it's a bit warmer to enjoy full use of the pool and garden.
Lovely property, sleepy village, great walks, pool, food and wine.
Jon was a great host and made sure we had everything we needed as well as good company
Many many thanks for a lovely holiday!
Lovely house in quiet village
Very comfortable house. There were only four of us all adults, and there was plenty of room for sitting and dining. The property was clean and in good order. John,the owner, was kind when the weather at the end of our holiday turned a little chilly, and turned on the heating for a hour or so evenings and mornings. Sadly the cloudy and a little chilly weather meant we could not make full use of the beautiful pool, which had plenty of loungers and sun parasols, within stunning grounds.
Amazing, quiet and relaxing
Absolutely loved this place, everything you need for a perfect week, can't recommend this highly enough, John was the perfect host, place immaculate and best bed I've ever slept in! Thanks for a brilliant week 😊
Wonderful property - lots of space, beautiful garden and pool.
We have stayed in several villas and gites in France - this one surpassed them all. Truly lovely. The private pool was a good size with lots of sun loungers and umbrellas, and safely fenced off from the garden and from my young grandchildren. The garden is lovely - a beautiful terraced area under vines looks onto a 'formal' garden, then round the corner to a huge grassed area with plenty of space for garden games. John, our host, couldn't have been nicer or more helpful and the kids loved him! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.
Perfectly maintained spacious villa in beautiful part of France
The villa is very comfortable, spacious and well equipped, with a lovely large garden. Pool area is very good and also fenced off which was great for the children. The owner lives next door and was very helpful without being intrusive. Clearly takes pride in people enjoying their holiday. It's set in very pretty countryside near some lovely towns. Great for markets and visiting vineyards.
