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!
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.
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.
Berthany is an almost island cradled between the Loire and the Cher , and Maries rose covered home is the perfect peaceful country retreat. Judt a short distance from historic Savonniere and Villandry it make an ideal base for exploring the Loire Valley, its chateaux and gardens.
The house was comfortable and very well equipped and having a charming hostess like Marie next door made all the difference to our stay. We were briefed with suggestions for places to go, offered delicious fig tarts and quiches, enjoyed lively discussions and sharded an outing to nearby Tours together something we would not have done on our own, One of our favourite stays during five months in Europe.
How fun it was to share the visit of the Contemporary Creation Center OLIVIER DEBRÉ which just opened last spring! To admire his enormous canvas expressing his view of the LOIRE RIVER and sky. Loved to listen to your impression, show you the ancient Place PLUMEREAU in close TOURS. Its historic houses and your interest for architecture, as well modern, or from Renaissance. Come back, to visit the Saint-Gratien cathedral, rue de la Scellerie antiques, bookstores, and Art Galleries. There 's still a lot to discover.
