Un Maison avec enfants

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week here with our two sons (8 & 2). The house and garden are both large so there was lots of room to run around! Marie very kindly let us use the sprinkler to cool the kids off, and found a large toy tractor for them to play on.

Out and about, our favourite trip was Clos Luce - a house with large gardens and some of Leonardo da vinci's inventions built to play with. We spent the whole day there exploring and playing.

We rented bikes, but because the Loire cycle path only started probably ~5km from the house (it's a rural idyll), unless your kids are able to do a distance, we kept to mostly just doing Savonnieres. Which isn't that much of a problem as there are 2 bakeries, cafe, biscuit shop, ice cream, park and river there... so it's an excursion in it's own right!

The aquatic centre in Tours was a firm favourite with slides and kiddie pools.

For the adults? Tours is a lovely city, and look out for the nearby Foire du vins for tastings!

Thanks again Marie.

Landelijk, ruimte, rust, comfort en genieten

  • 4 of 5

We (gezin met twee kinderen) hebben heerlijk genoten van dit gerenoveerde gezellige oude huis, met veel ruimte en comfort, de twee paarden, de katten en kippen. Het huis ligt in een landelijk en mooi gebied, tussen de Loire en de Cher, op een kleine 20 min. van Tours. Een mooie plek om de kastelen (Villandry is vlakbij) en de Loire-streek te verkennen. Marie is een geweldige gastvrouw die je graag in de watten legt, zonder de privacy te storen. Marie, hartelijk dank voor je gastvrijheid en goede zorgen.

Lovely Stay; Great Location and Hostess

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I truly enjoyed our stay in Berthenay and Une Maison, Un Jardin. Marie was a wonderful hostess. She welcomed us warmly and gave us excellent advice on where to go, what to see and where to eat. Our baggage did not arrive until five days after we did and Marie was very thoughtful about lending us clothing and giving shopping advice. The gite is very nice, quite large and was outfitted well. The area is beautiful and we enjoyed bicycle rides almost every day. There are plenty of interesting things to do within comfortable driving distance - castles, quaint towns, vineyards, natural beauty and nice cafes/restaurants. We were fortunate with the weather - it did not rain once in nearly two weeks - so we would recommend going in September if you can.

Berthenay's Best

  • 5 of 5

This house is a delightful place with an arty atmosphere throughout all of its spacious rooms. Marie is a very helpful and knowledgeable hostess. She made our stay special with fresh flowers in the home and good Rose wine on our arrival, fruit from her garden during our stay and fresh bread from the local bakery for breakfast on the day of our departure.The location is quiet but central and close to a lot of attractions and good restaurants. I highly recommend this home to anyone visiting the Loire Valley.

Owner's Response: Hi, thanks. Your arrival was a good moment shared in the blondie light of the end of the day with a glass of local rosé. You felt immediately " as at home ", and on holidays. It was very pleasant. Your breakfasts in the sun, the morning "hello" to animals, tour of the garden, and hop! Now you're gone visit a castle or a cellar. See you soon with pleasure...

Owner's Response: Hello, Christina, Thanks for your review. It was a great plaesure to have your family with the children in"Une Maison, Un jardin". The children found very quickly what interest each one in the garden, and in the house. The guys : frogs in the pond,running around, trying to build something like a cabane with bambous, and long herbs. Annabelle finding quiet place in the upstairs 'salon to read, draw, or be on her own. And three of them so cute organizing à pick-nic with small ancient plates, a Peak-nic in a wicker basket, mixing the harvests of the garden. They space for pic-nic far away from the prents, gave autonomie. Next time, as we know better, now, I may propose activities : around on the countrty side with 1 paper bloc. watercolor. We can product Ia special brunch from 10h00 to sp Thanks

Most pleasant stay in castle and wine country

  • 5 of 5

This cosy and quiet house is at the focal point of most places of interest and things to do in the Loire region. Marie is a pleasant and knowledgeable host, and an art and vintage clothes collector - she was a stylist in a past life and speaks about fine arts with passion. The way she designed the house interior is just smashing, taking advantage of every corner to make it as beautiful as comfortable. We had a splendid time and will be back with pleasure - and bring new people along. We loved eating great food and tasting wines at Marie's friends' - a recommendation from her is the best passport.
