Lovely back-house in Vendome
Our stay was very nice. We loved the little town, although we spent a lot of time on the road exploring. The lodging was a nice size, the garden area (between the back-house and the main house) is lovely. We were there in late Sept. so it was a bit cool to sit out much. In warmer months, it would be a perfect spot for an evening glass of wine. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen small but perfectly functional. The shower in the bathroom was quite an experience - no separation between the shower and the rest of the room. No step in or enclosure - just a drain. After the shower, you use a floor squeegee to pull the water back into the shower "area" and drain. It was weird at first, but at the end of our week, I really liked it. It allowed for a large, comfortable shower in an otherwise tiny area. The only complaint is the wifi was non-existent. Every once in a while we'd get a weak signal, maybe enough to get a text out or, if lucky, a web page open. Then it would go away. The modem was in the main house and the signal just did not make it to the back-house. We used a TON of data that week. But, other than that - it was a lovely stay.
Well situated, elegant, airy place to stay.
Situated in the pedestrianised centre of Vendome the gite is convenient for the shops, restaurants and historic buildings in the town. It is inside a quiet courtyard garden and facing the owner's house. Parking is not on site but in one of the public carparks, not too far away, but luggage etc can be off-loaded at the door.
The upstairs bedroom, with 3 single beds, is not as attractive as the rest of the space, but suitable for older children. The bathroom and separate toilet are downstairs.
Potential users should be aware that the wifi signal is intermittent.
Absolutely perfect charming apt in charming town.
We stayed a month last October, and did not want to leave. The apartment is perfect - wonderfully situated and appointed, and Claudette could not have been nicer or more helpful. Vendome was a wonderful town to explore, and close enough to the Chateaux of the Loire Valley. I wanted a town big enough I could walk around in and have things to do and places to go, but smaller than Blois. Amboise, while nice, was too small for an entire month. Vendome was the perfect match, and situated in the pretty countryside. The townspeople were warm and friendly (especially considering how little we speak French). The arms of the river wandering through the town make it a very memorable sweet place to visit. (ps: you could visit from Paris by train without a car and have a great weekend.)
Warm, Welcoming and Generous with their time.
After having a train problem we arrived late to our new home in Vendome. Our host Claudette and Daniel gave us a warm welcome and walked us into town to a local restaurant and helped convince the owners to prepare a late dinner of local fish. We sat outside and enjoyed the local ambience. The apartment and the garden were spectacular in a simple and private way. On our first morning in Vendome a basket of croissants, baguette and home made jam were on our window sill. Claudette helped with sights, directions and overall information about the area. Many thanks to Claudette and Daniel for all their hospitality.
