Wonderful accommodations in a quiet setting
We were two senior couples exploring the Loire region in particular its chateaux. Marie was extremely helpful and gave us very useful information about the region and what it had to offer. Her house was very welcoming. We had ample room for the four of us and the kitchen was well-stocked. We would highly recommend Marie’s house for a quiet stay in a convenient location just outside of Tours while exploring the Loire Valley.
Dear guests from US, it was a real pleasure to receive you. To listen to your envy, and to help you to build an interesting program during your stay. With what are your main center of interest: chateaus, Leonardo da Vinci 500 years birthday of the Renaissance, with all his creations and inventions you saw in CLOS de LUCÉ, his house in AMBOISE. It was so good to hear your discovery and enthusiasm. Come back, you will be very welcome!
A lovely place
We loved our stay! The owner is friendly and gracious, the house and yard were clean, well appointed, and highly functional. The space is somewhat quirky, with sloped ceilings upstairs, but spacious and artful. It is a removed and quiet location, yet with nearby shopping - and a great centralized location for getting to many Château’s (as well as wineries and other activities we didn’t elect to enjoy). I would gladly return for another fabulous stay!
Hi, thanks for your kind words. It was really a pleasure to receive all of you, to show the places interesting to visit, the winery in which to have a tasting. Walks around to do, what to explore in TOURS CITY! Yes, there are a lot of other activities to do, workshop, art crafts, exhibitions, and experiment a trip on ancient boats, with an "aperitif", or a pick-nick( Mary can prepare it for you. Just to be ordered 2 days before). Come back, you know you will be very welcome! We hope to see you again soon! All the best to everyone.
A most relaxing holiday.
There were three generations of our family staying at Marie’s holiday home. She was very kind and did her best to help us with all our questions. The gite is set In the country so it was a very restful and relaxing holiday. Very clean, well equipped excellent beds and towels supplied and very relaxing. It was very hot so an outside parasol would have been welcome and possibly a bbq but we didn’t ask so perhaps we should have done, also we felt if Marie had put together an information book with details of supermarkets etc it would be good but again she answered everything if we asked.. We would definitely return in the future and would recommend .
A lovely stay in a beautiful place
My husband and I and his two sisters stayed for a week. Marie, the owner, lives next door and was a great host. Very friendly and helpful with suggestions on things to do, and always responsive when we had a request. The house is quirky and different, nicely renovated and Marie has decorated it with some lovely and unusual pieces. We had a great stay and would absolutely recommend it. We hope to be back one day.
It was also very kind to have you as hosts! The house is made for that. The Chateaus visits are easy from this location, you can visit also the wine makers around. Or decide to stay and relax, walk along the river, or bike for one or two days. You have still to discover... We will receive you again with pleasure!
ideal to visit the Chateaus and bike on LOIRE circuits
The house is well situated, all Chateaus are close, the farest at one hour drive. We bike along the river, and admire the landscape. A good vacation address.
Marie is the perfect host. We arrived late from CDG with half our luggage; thus.... no toothpaste, shampoo, etc. Marie greeted us at 11:00 PM with wine and cheese and supplied us with the necessities that British Airways was holding hostage at LHR. The cottage is beautiful and reflects Marie’s talent as an artist. We truly enjoyed her companionship and look forward to returning to this little slice of heaven.
Dear guests, it was really a pleasure to wait for you even late, and to be sure you were well arrived. To help you to feel like at home, and to provide the first necessity, to be comfortable. Traveling gives sometimes such surprise. Your luggage happily were delivered quickly. So good to hear your interest for the region, and discovery of local wines & products. There are still "chais" to visit. New vineyards, even organic. Come back to taste new one, and visit new places. You know you are always welcome.
