Perfect large family home for exploring la Touraine

  • 5 of 5

You could never hope to find such a centrally located large home on an island in the river, with water on three sides and a tall, opaque fence on the other. A little sound of traffic in the morning and afternoon is all that reminds you how close you are to the city. Room for several cars or more to park behind the remote-controlled gate. The house is full of bedrooms and places to sit. The kitchen lacks nothing. Our host was prompt, professional, and above all warm in welcoming us. I think the dog probably liked it even more than the humans, with all the open space to roam on the property. Highly recommended.

Really nice property and recommended for your stay in Tours.

  • 5 of 5

This property is very pretty with room for the family to enjoy many different interest and places to have a good time. We enjoyed the lake and use of the boats, as well as the beautiful landscaping around the house. The house is fully equipped for cooking and comfort and has room sufficient to allow space for the family. Owner was very accommodating, hospitable and made himself available to us at any request we had. We truly enjoyed our time in Gite La Maison du Lac and Tours is a wonderful place to visit.

Maison chaleureuse, romantique et fonctionnelle dans un site enchanteur!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un superbe week-end (groupe d'amis de 10 adultes)! La maison est magnifique, très bien décorée, très bien équipée et très bien située (balades en canoë, tout près du village à pied, sites touristiques proches, à 15 mns du vieux Tours...). Nous avons adoré cette île et nous pensons y retourner!

Merveilleux week end en famille dans cette superbe demeure décorée avec beaucoup de goût. Le parc privatif, situé sur une presqu'île, est idyllique. A refaire absolument.

great villa

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I passed a wonderful week last August in this beautiful house. The house was clean and well furnished with many charming objects and pictures, the kitchen very well equipped, a comfortable living room and a huge garden by the river! In spite of the closeness of the water there were not mosquitos at all!

And the location is great as well, the ideal to visit the Loira valley with its castles and towns full of history. We had also great fun renting the kayaks and going along the Loira river.

Definetely I recommend this house.

Sublime séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 2 jours à 8 personnes dans ce sublime écrin de verdure. La maison présente un cachet indéniable et tout est présent pour le plus grand confort. Le propriétaire est disponible, souriant et très arrangeant.

Idéal pour un séjour au calme en famille ou entre amis, tout en profitant du centre de tours qui est à 10min en voiture ou en taxi.

À tester sans hésiter à la vue du rapport prix/prestations.
