Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a lovely time here and it's beautiful in this part of the Touraine.
The Kids loved the garden and the hot tub.
The house itself is great and makes you feel at home.
5 based on 11 holidaymaker reviews
A delightful property in quiet location. All clean and in order upon arrival and had everything we needed regrading comfort and appliances. Beautifully furnished and lovely attention to detail regarding the decor. Very private and safe for our teo dogs which enabled us to have a relaxing time. Would certainly consider staying again. Highly recommend it!
Great property. Well maintained
We had a lovely week at Grand Reves. The property was excellent and well maintained. I would certainly recommend this property.
It is close to Richlieu and Chinon, both beautiful towns.
The perfect Family Holiday Home!
This place is just fantastic! It's quite remote (by this city-boy's standards) but that means it's so peaceful, and it's still really well located for getting around the Loire. The nearest town is a 10 minute drive away. It has a good market, a few places to eat, a bakers, a butchers, and a supermarket on the outskirts.
The house is spotless and so well presented. The bedrooms are lovely and very comfortable. It took no time at all to feel at home there. The hot tub was a huge hit with our toddler, and the whole outside area is spacious and very safe for children to play in.
We don't generally do repeat holidays, but hand on heart I can't imagine waiting too long to go back to this region, and I know exactly where we'll be staying when we do!
I should also say that I found Eva a pleasure to deal with. Thanks again!
Lovely away from it all break
The converted barn is beautifully finished and furnished to a high standard. Slightly outside the village, surrounded by farmland and woodland. Excellent for a quiet get away from it all vacation. The hot tub is a nice addition and was sampled every day by Mrs F!
Free Wi-Fi was also a welcome amenity.
Richelieu nearby is very historic and quaint and there were plenty of Chateau's and other historic sites to keep us very busy within an hours drive.
Local auberge's and restaurants serve good honest tasty food at very reasonable prices.
The accommodation was clean & tidy and had a spacious garden.
All in all a comfortable and delightful place to stay.
Fantastic quiet hidaway in the Loire Valley area
Accommodation was very comfortable, very clean and as advertised. It has all the necessary amenities. Nicely located in the Loire region and also close to the Vienne region where we ventured quite a bit. We also spent quite a bit of time around Richelieu and its park. Would definitely recommend.
Beautiful new barn conversion
We have just spent a thoroughly enjoyable two weeks at Grands Reves which is superbly placed on the edge of a village, within easy reach of the Loire Valley. The gite has been beautifully converted and decorated with care and good taste. It is clean, new, bright and airy and a joy to return to after a busy day out. Lovely flat country walks straight from the property, and friendly, unobtrusive neighbours next door.
Eva is a pleasure to deal with, answering silly questions promptly, and efficiently. We can definitely recommend a holiday here.
