A lovely house in the country
We enjoyed a wonderful Hollyday in Natalies picturesque and charming house just a few hundreds meter from the banks of the Loire, and the swimmingpool in the garden was a great hit. Natalie is such a sweet and friendly host.
A typically aged rustic French farm house next to the Loire, with lots of quirks, basic not luxury.
This is a typical French holiday house, not luxurious, but old, basic and rustic.
This area of the Loire is outstanding and a cyclists heaven with smooth rolling roads and brilliant views. The house is in a gorgeous area close to the road and you can hear the cyclists who are touring as they pass chatting. The nearby village has the obligatory café and boulangerie required for your daily croissant, along with a cycle hire shop. There are lots of Chateaus within easy reach (some certainly within cycling distance)
The house is beautiful and quaintly rustic and a bit run down, set down a steep drive off the main road (sharp turn), which has quite a bit of tourist traffic and cyclists. The garden must have been spectacular when the house was lived in full time, but is tidyish with fruit trees and a decent sized pool (mind the wasps gorging on the fruit trees next to the pool on your way up and down). The pool is supposed to self cleaning however when we stayed the robot was broken and there is no cover so you do end up fishing local wildlife out. Chlorine levels were kept very high.
There is an outside terrace with table, parasol, chairs and barbecue on the road side of the house where you can sit of an afternoon and evening.
The bedrooms are very basic but a decent size and the beds while not the most comfortable were freshly made up, however we recommend you do not leave your windows open at night as this is prime mosquito country due to the river plus be aware that the house cat will always find her way in to try and sleep on a bed. The bedroom above the kitchen is up a ladder and has a very low ceiling.
The kitchen is basic but has all necessary equipment. The bathrooms again are basic, when we visited only the bath with shower attachment downstairs was available as there was an issue with the plumbing upstairs and the toilets are not the most reliable requiring an emergency plumber to visit and the septic tank can smell outside.
There is a large lounge with a mezzanine which has a futon which is peaceful and tastefully decorated with French satellite TV available. There is no internet or Wi-Fi and phone signals can at time be poor if you are relying on 3 or 4G. Wifi available at café in village.
Be aware that the check in times are not as displayed on the site as Madam likes to ensure the house is cleaned so entry to the house is not available until 18:00 and check out before 10:00am is required to allow cleaning crew to start.
Beautiful, but very rustic!
This Is a beautiful character property in a lovely, rural location. It is however in need of some TLC.
There are only 4 proper bedrooms so sleeps 8 comfortably. All rooms just need a good clean and cobweb sweep!!
Check with the owner that the pool is up and running!
I am questioning myself with your remark about "sweep and cobweb", for I am quite uptight on the matter (and do the cleaning myself)! Is it the reason why you left my house in such a bad shape?
Huis aan de loire
Een mooie woning om lekker te genieten van het loiregebied
Maison ayant beaucoup de charme,dans un très beau cadre de verdure et localisation exceptionnelle L
Maison très agréable et confortable mais pour 8 à 9 personnes maxi, en l'état. Une salle de bain ne fonctionnait pas et un seul WC indépendant pour 13 personnes. Le couchage en mezzanine est rustique mais les chambres dans l'aile principale sont très agréables.
Nous avons été bien accueilli, et nous avons passé un moment très agréable dans une maison chaleureuse et calme.
Your rental is located in the center of one of the most tourist areas of France, the Loire Castles: hence the possibility of countless sightseeing, discovery of the rural, garden tours, performances and sound and light, ballads by car, by bike or on foot. It is also a wine region (the appellation area Touraine-Azay-le-Rideau, near Chinon), with cellar tours, wine growers and discovery property in wine purchases. It lies along the Loire, wild river, whose culture and history lead to many distractions and discoveries: walks on the river, exploring the skippers and fishing Loire (resurgent) piques- picnics on the islands, canoeing-cayak and other water activities, local festivals, the village of Bréhémont and the surrounding villages (the Chapelle aux Naux, Langeais, etc.) with entertainment, concerts throughout the summer. On the sought route of the Loire by bike, its location will delight the lovers of cycling (bike rentals in the village - 2 bicycles can also be provided) and the opportunity to meet and exchange with hikers.
