COMMENTS AND REVIEWS FROM GUESTS
A LOVELY COTTAGE WITH BAGS OF CHARACTER. Great communication with the owner, who met all our requests and had good local tips. Family highlight was the zoo and some very theatrical gibbons. Highly recommended. Mr. and Mrs S and family - September 2014
WE, A NORWEGIAN AND GERMAN COUPLE, spent an awesome weekend in this lovely cottage which has welcomed us with a bottle of a tasty Saumur cremant. It was a perfect choice for us, well equipped and clean. We enjoyed the indian summer in the two gardens. The location is perfect for trips to explore the beautiful region, for which one weekend was too short. Communication was perfect, questions were answered promptly. We appreciate very much that you have a sense of your visitors needs, and that you consider for example also guidance to handle emergency situations (which we fortunately did not need).

THE PROPERTY WAS EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED and very comfortably furnished, with a very good kitchen equipped with all utensils. It is a 10/15 minute drive to shops and restaurants but their is a very good local boulangerie within walking distance. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday, with long walks by the river, the chance to relax in the garden with home cooking and a base to explore the Loire valley, then its perfect. Mr M.

NOUS AVONS PASSE UN TRES AGREABLE SEJOUR dans leur charmante maison au bord de la Loire. Le temps a été avec nous et nous avons pu profiter de l'agréable jardin et des arbres fruitiers (mirabelle et framboise). La maison est très bien équipée, et nous avons été accueillis avec une belle bouteille de Saumur. Tout était parfait ! Merci Mme. D er amis - juillet 2014
We (two couples) stayed in the cottage for a wonderful week in June. The setting is great if you want a quiet, relaxing place that is a short drive from culture and excitement. We had a wonderful time cooking in the well equipped kitchen and eating in one of the two delightful gardens. Angers and Saumur are a quick drive away (we didn't try use public transport but there is a bus stop a stones throw from the front door) and a boulangerie(sp?) a few minutes walk along the river-sode path.Mr D. and Friends - Juin 2014
WE HAD A LOVELY TIME at Riverside Cottage - it is a very comfortable place to stay, full of French country charm. Our hosts Colin and Myriam were very helpful and quick to respond to our enquiries. Spring was definitely a great time to be there - with the gardens in full bloom! Mr. P - AUSTRALIA - mai 2014
THE COTTAGE WAS IN A PICTURESQUE LOCATION, right on the banks of the Loire. When we stayed, it was a bit chilly in the old stone cottage, but I can imagine it would be perfect in slightly warmer weather. Colin was very easy to contact, and kindly offered to provide us with an extra heater. The gardens are lovely - we unfortunately didn't get time to take advantage of the rhubarb! We would definitely recommend this place for those wanting to explore the beautiful surroundings of the Loire and for a relaxing getaway. Mme. A. - avril 2014
