Holiday lives up to expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of the Gregson family, grandparents, parents and children aged 11, 9 and 2, had a wonderful holiday at Les Lilas in July/August this year.

We have, in the past, been disappointed when we have turned up at gites to find they are not as wonderful as they appear on the this case we were not disappointed, the gite was lovely.

The setting was delightful, down a quiet lane so the children were safe,with lovely views all around. The gite was beautifully appointed with tiled floors throughout which helped to keep us cool, nice furniture...especially in the bedrooms where the beds and furniture looked brand new, and two lovely bathrooms. The garden was private and pretty.

The pool was used several times every day by the older children and most days by the adults and was a major part of the holiday.

The gite was ideally suited for visiting pretty places. We visited Amboise (20 mins), Loches (15 mins) several times...both beautiful. We visited Chenonceau (beautiful chateau) and there are others within easy reach.

The owners, Jean Luc and Valerie, who live on site, were friendly and helpful when we needed them but unobtrusive when we didn't...the perfect hosts.

We have had many good holidays in France...but this was the best.

Excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Gîte confortable, très propre, décoré avec goût et bien équipé, propriétaires très sympas et serviables, la piscine est un vrai "plus" ! A recommander ... Nous (famille belge : 2 adultes et 4 ados) avons passé de très bonnes vacances, enrichissantes (la liste des choses à voir dans le coin est infinie) et ensoleillées, ce qui ne gâche rien. Nous avons même prolongé de 2 jours .. C'est promis, nous reviendrons !

Superbe location

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une magnifique semaine dans ce gîte qui nous a donné entière satisfaction. Très bien situé avec une distance idéale pour visiter les plus célèbres châteaux de la Loire (Chenonceaux, Amboise, Loches...) ainsi que le zoo de Beauval à ne pas rater.

La location est spacieuse, bien équipée et propre. La piscine est très agréable surtout quand il y a des enfants.

Les propriétaires sont charmants et accueillants. Ils sont à notre écoute et n'hésitent pas à nous donner des conseils sur les marchés du coin et les lieux à visiter absolument.

Nous recommandons vivement ce gîte et nous n'hésiterons pas à y revenir.

Gîte confortable, propre et très bien équipé. Les propriétaires sont très accueillants et nous ont très bien conseillé sur les sites à voir aux alentours. Très bien placé et facile d'accès, on a pu rayonner sur de courtes distances et visiter beaucoup de choses durant notre séjour.

Quelques bons restaurants proches du gîte : Le Clos aux Roses et Le Clos de Jeanne.

Pour nos "fin de journée" la piscine était très appréciable.

Nous y retournerons sans aucun doute et vous le recommandons.

Gîte idéalement situé, spacieux et confortable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine dans cette sympathique propriété.

Le gîte est très spacieux, très bien équipé, entretenu et très propre.

Jardin privatif avec salon de jardin et barbecue.

Comme le soleil est toujours au rendez-vous dans cette magnifique région, rien de tel qu'un plongeon dans la piscine pour rendre les vacances encore plus agréables, et pour ceux qui n'aiment pas se mouiller, des transats vous attendent.

IL y a beaucoup de châteaux à visiter dans les environs, l'incontournable parc zoologique de Beauval, et bien d'autres choses... Ce ne sont pas les activités qui manquent.

Un grand merci aux propriétaires du gîte pour leur accueil chaleureux et leur gentillesse.
