Romantic Gites in the Loire Valley - that we feel, really stand out from the rest.
Our traditional lime-stone Loire Valley Gites are set in 5 acres of grounds, with shaded avenues of trees, mature conifers, exotic trees, lawns, shrubs, wall-climbers & all sorts of gorgeous flowering plants... the gardens are also integrated around the Gites swimming pool area.
All our Gites cater for babies and young children as well as teens.
For the young children there is a great in-ground splash pool: 5m x 5m & 20cm deep. And a main heated swimming pool for the adults: 10m x 5m & up to 2m deep.
The pool area is open from mid May to mid September.
There are also many other activities on the grounds of our Gites, such as table tennis, badminton, football, swings & many garden toys for your children to enjoy.
We visited "La Chaume" for two weeks in July 2010. We found the property without any difficult- the directions were clear and easy to follow. The first view of the property is of a charming small complex of cottages within an enclosed garden area. Our cottage was well prepared on our arrival and it was in very good condition. It comprised 3 bedrooms, a bathroom, living room and kitchen which was well equipped.
The pool area comprises an adults pool and a separate childrens paddling area. It too is well maintained and enclosed within a walled area.
The surprise for us was the garden and games area.
The property is on the outskirts of Cussay village where we visited the local auberge-a well run and attractive small hotel/bar- and the patisserie which produces the breakfast baguette and croissant!
The town of Ligueil is located within five minutes drive- it has an excellent pizzeria.
The larger town of Loches is about twenty minutes drive away and it has a range of restaurants and historic sights.
In summary, we had a most enjoyable holiday at " La Chaume" and we will undoubtedly return for another stay there in the future.
We stayed in La Brangerie 5 days in May 2010 and had a lovely time there! We were suprised to find all kinds of outdoor-facilities, as badminton-nets, tabletennis-tables, lots of swings and a beautiful garden, with all kinds of flowers and a bamboo-forest. Since it was rather cold, the children only had a quick swim in the swimmingpool, but we really enjoyed hanging out in the garden. The owners provided a lot of extra outdoor toys and the flat was equipped with baby-chairs and cots and the rooms were very nice. Cussay is a small village, and unfortunately the village restaurant was fully booked for the Sunday-lunch, but probably worth a try! Lot's of nice things to see in the area. We especially enjoyed Ambroise and spent a whole day trying out Da Vincis inventions in Le Clos Lucé.
De très beaux extérieurs pour cette propriété : un grand parc de plantes exotiques, un espace jeux pour enfants (badmington, table de ping pong, balançoire,...) et une superbe piscine.
Pour les français, comme la télé ne dispose que de chaines anglaises, de nombreux DVD sont mis à disposition.
Par contre, les propriétaires se doivent d'être un peu plus exigeants avec les vacanciers sur la propreté intérieure du logement (frigo sale, poubelles non vidées à l'étage,...). De même, à partir du moment où il y a des cadres de décoration, ce serait bien de les épousseter de temps en temps.
Notre jugement a peut-être été influencé par notre logement de la semaine précédente qui nous a été donné nickel...
Malgré tout, dans la globalité, le séjour a été très bon.
