Fabulous Property

  • 5 of 5

Perfect property for our stay in Blois. Set on a quiet side street the front door opens into a beautifully presented and spotlessly clean home.

The bedrooms both which are doubles , have lovely comfortable beds with crisp cotton bed linen and both have an ensuite , which was perfect as we were two couples sharing the house , the bedrooms are on opposite sides of the property with separate stairs to each of the rooms .

As stated in other reviews the court yard garden is charming and a lovely spot to enjoy a drink at the end of a busy day touring the many lovely places to visit in this area.

The private parking in a secure garage at the end of the road was an added bonus as parking can be hard to find in the town .

Elisabeth arrived with the keys at the time we had arranged on arrival and was very helpful explaining where things were and what we could use in the house . She arrived promptly when we were departing to return the security deposit .

A lovely house in a lovely part of France . I would not hesitate in recommending to couples looking for a place to stay in this region.

An Exceptional experience

  • 5 of 5

Blois is an attractive, perhaps under appreciated, town, centrally located in the Loire valley region, an easy train ride from Paris. It is large enough to have many of the ammenities visitors want, such as good restaurants, cafes and shops, yet small enough to walk everywhere and drive out of on day trips with ease. Some of the most notable chateaux, such as Chambord and Cheverny are barely half an hours drive away, and others are not too much further.

Elisabeth Gyselinck's house, where we stayed, contributed significantly to the enjoyment of our visit. Discreetly hidden behind a door in an imposing stone wall on a quiet street, the interior is charming and practical. Made up of two separate buildings, neatly joined together by a sunny, pleasant alcove, the house is elegantly furnished, the bedrooms comfortable and the bathrooms well equipped. All of this looking out on a fine, cobbled courtyard and garden in which to enjoy the local wine and cheese in the late afternoon after touring the sites of the town and countryside. The available parking with the house is very convenient.

Just a ten minute walk from the house is the old centre of Blois with an excellent fromagerie, wine shop, various boulangeries and your choice of restaurants, from modest to haut cuisine. For more comprehensive food shopping, there is a Carrefour less than a ten minute drive away. And do not miss the Chateau overlooking the town, an interesting melange of architectural styles and imbued with historical drama.

Altogether, a memorable and enjoyable stay.

Lovely to look at

  • 3 of 5

Nice to look at and spacious, but not cosy for a family. The location is good for Blois. The coffee table is so fragile we were scared to go near it. Bedrooms stuffy, need a ceiling fan. There is no work surface in the kitchen for food prep. Host is friendly. Overall good but been to better in past.

Owner's Response: I am stupefaite and upset to read your comment. With regard to the coffee table there is a high exaggeration in your comments This isn't because I'm asking you of is not the move cannot be used. The angle of the feet of this creator must always be the same otherwise it destabilized the tray table. Sofa a skateboarding adapts to the needs of each whether is wants to or not be closer to the table. With respect to the work plan it is adapted to the dimensions of the kitchen and with regard to the ceiling fan I'm sorry that you have not chosen the good week for your holiday because after days time was cold and rainy.

Perfect retreat in the heart of Blois

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this charming house with our 18 year old daughter for a week in July, 2017. The house is bright and airy and beautifully furnished; the fairly recent refurbishment has been carried out with many great features mixing old with new. The house is very comfortable, has everything you will need and it is spotlessly clean. The two en-suite bedrooms of this self contained house are divided into two separate buildings connected by a conservatory, so is perfect for two couples or those with older children (the wifi is strong enough for Netflix and there is a PlayStation in one bedroom). The courtyard is the crowning glory, not overlooked in anyway and the plants and features make it the perfect place for outdoor dining and relaxing. The house is within walking distance of everything in Blois, we put the car into the secure garage and left it there for days, walking and cycling instead (hire Bikes from the guy at the top of the road in the Jardin de l'Évêché ). Blois is ideal for exploring - cycling is very safe with lots of routes and cycle paths and many Châteaux are within half an hours drive. Great holiday and look forward to returning.

Unique and wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The unimpressive outside door opens up to a beautiful apartment that spreads in many directions, and a fabulous totally private garden lined with flowering shrubs. The kitchen has everything you could desire, and it was delightful to eat breakfast in the garden, and have a glass of wine there every evening. We had a hot spell in July and fans would have been helpful. Beautifully decorated and felt like a real home. Merci, Elizabeth!
