Fantastic accommodation in Blois

  • 5 of 5

Blois is a wonderful place to stay for a few (or more) days. It is a simple train journey from Paris, close to the chateaux of the Loire Valley, with a great range of other activities: House of Magic, Zoo, a large market, historic churches etc. After spending a long time searching the internet for accommodation (we were a group of 11: made up of 4 adults and 7 children aged 11 - 17) the Maison des Chalands appeared to 'tick all the boxes'. Booking was easy - despite the fact our French is very, very limited, and Emmanuelle only spoke a small amount of English - and Emmanuelle met us at the property and gave us a thorough tour, she is a friendly and welcoming host. The property was perfect - location was great, a short 5 minute walk to town, with grocery shop, boulangerie, charcuterie, and other facilities just down the road; layout was perfect for our large group, we had heaps of room, the living area in particular was spacious and inviting, the decor was beautiful, and every facility was provided for - we could cook easily - mind you we mostly tended to head to town to try out the great restaurants! Plenty of bathrooms, a washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, wifi etc etc. The property was clean and well maintained. We would love to come back and stay again, and we would definitely recommend Maison des Chalands to others.

Maison agréable sauf au niveau chambres, toilette et WC.

  • 4 of 5

Accueil Madame Chartier : 10 sur 10 . Environnement agréable près de tous commerces et du centre de Blois . Stationnement voiture difficile en fin de journée. Dans la maison une grande "pièce à vivre" regroupant cuisine, salon et salle à manger avec belle vue sur Blois ; rien ne manque quant à l'intendance ( appareils ménagers, vaisselles etc... ) Hélas maison peu fonctionnelle concernant le couchage car n'offrant que très peu d'intimité ni possibilités de repos tant les résidents sont obligés de se déranger les uns les autres pour des problèmes d'accès aux salle d'eau ou WC. Seules deux chambres, dont une très petite sans salle d'eau ni WC mais vue sur le fleuve, permettent un peu d'intimité, tous les autres lits sont dans des espaces communs, un peu auberge de jeunesse ( humour ) Pour nous qui étions 10 adultes ce fut un peu juste de ce point de vue et c'est dommage car à part cela notre séjour aurait été parfait et nous en garderons excellent souvenir.

Woaw !

  • 5 of 5

Le challenge de ce week-end était de trouver une maison pour toute la famille (11 personnes) avec du charme reflétant celui le charme de la région et le côté pratique pour une réunion familiale : pari plus que gagné avec cette maison où l'on ne peut être que sous le charme. Parfaite pour l'organisation d'un grand groupe avec ses multiples espaces, on retrouve le côté chaleureux de la région dans la décoration et la magnifique vue dont on bénéficie : prendre ses repas sur la grande table conviviale avec vue sur la Loire est un bonheur absolu. Il n'y a juste qu'à traverser pour pouvoir se promener sur les quais de la Loire. La propriétaire fait tout pour que l'on se sente comme chez nous. Un grand merci !

sejour très agréable et douillet dans un site typique du val de Loire

  • 5 of 5

les conditions du séjour sont conformes à la description . Le logement convient bien aux familles , se prête bien à un séjour de plusieurs jours consécutifs et le parking ne présente pas de difficultés particulières.

L'environnement commercial est très appréciable et vraiment à proximité immédiate, à pied.

Il n'y a pas de cour ou jardin mais les quais sont aménagés et offrent de belles balades ou espaces de jeux pour parents et enfants.

Enfin , l'accueil par la propriétaire est très professionnel et agréable.

Je recommande vivement .
