Lovely gites, big garden, comfortable beds!

  • 4 of 5

We had a super week at the end of August with our two small children. We loved the area - Rigny D'Ussy castle, Tours, Saumur; enjoyed the 35 degree sunshine and loved the cottage - spacious, clean, modern with everything you could want in thr kitchen. The children loved the garden spending hours on the trampoline and the swing. We would highly recommend a visit!

Beautifully presented house in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Miriam and her family have done everything possible to make this a lovely house and have thought of everything.

The house was spotlessly clean upon arrival and they contacted us during our stay to make sure everything was O.K.

The location is superb for visiting all the sights of the Loire and the house is set in a peaceful garden.

We loved it and I would strongly recommend it as a beautiful pace to stay.

Beautiful place to spend holidays

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The place is a very good hub for exploring the Loire valley west of Tours. Chinon and Usse castles are 'round the corner, Azay-le-Rideau, Langeais, and famous caves are not far away. The house is situated at the Indre river and has a large garden where you can play table tennis, badminton, etc. The interior is very clean and has all the tools you need. We even found the appropriate tools when we tried Snails in Garlic sauce :-)

The host were very friendly and truely cared. All our kids and ourselves chose this the best site on our France trip this year.

Excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Superbe séjour dans ce gîte sur les rives de l’indre. Bien placé afin de visiter la région et ses châteaux nous avons pu également profiter des ballades le long des rives de la Loire qui demarre à qq centaines de mètres du gîte.

Le gîte est très bien équipé il ne manque rien les chambre sont spacieuses et le literie de qualité. Très bien entretenue aussi bien intérieurement qu’exterieurement. Vélos, table de Ping Ping, aire de jeux, ... tout est à disposition .

Même pour l’escalier d’apparence un peu raide est sécurisé à l’etage par une barrière pour les enfants.

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour et je recommande l’adresse aux personnes qui souhaitent venir visiter la région.

Fantastique!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une fantastique semaine dans la maison aux libellules. Tout est pensé pour le confort et le bien-être des grands et des petits. Les pièces sont spacieuses et bien agencées. Les trois générations de la famille ont apprécié les espaces de vie à l'intérieur et de détente à l'extérieur. Le lieu est impeccable et bien situé pour les visites variées. Un grand merci à M. et Mme Halloin pour leur accueil chaleureux.

Douceur de vivre en Val de Loire

  • 5 of 5

Charmante petite maison bien aménagée et équipée. Le jardin et la terrasse sont très agréables. L'accès au bord de l'Indre permet d'observer en toute tranquillité oiseaux, libellules, batraciens, renards et lièvres.

Côté visites et activités, une semaine ne suffit pas à faire le tour des sites à visiter. Idem pour les itinéraires vélo ou les descentes en canoé-kayaks !

Seul point un peu plus négatif, la route très passante en semaine le matin et le soir.
