About Sarah & Jean-Michel

We are a French/ British family living in London. We fell in love with the village of Montrésor when we lived in Paris and visited on holiday. We have owned property in the village ever since and come back as often as we can.

Sarah & Jean-Michel purchased this cottage in 2014

What makes this cottage unique

The Gamekeeper's cottage is wonderfully secluded, by the banks of the river and set in lovely grounds. Only a few minutes' walk from the heart of the village, you will have the perfect view of medieval village of Montrésor and feel as though you have stepped back in time.

Magical

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I chose the town of Montresor because of some websites that rated it as amazing. We found the Gamekeeper's cottage and decided it looked perfect. As soon as we booked it, the owners contacted us with kind greetings and useful information. We vacationed over Christmas and the owners went out of their way to make our stay very special. The house is located in a perfect setting. From the living room window is a view of the town and castle. The river, with a walking trail, is across the street. I am a photographer and was not disappointed with the endless subject matter in this quaint town. There are many beautiful chateaus and towns nearby to visit and all within about a 30 minutes drive. The house had everything we needed including a fully equipped kitchen and the architecture is very unique. Our stay was one of a kind and we LOVED it!!!

Beautiful, tranquil stay

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in montresor in the Gamekeepers cottage and loved the cottage and the village. We were there in late autumn so the area was incredible quiet . We did some wonderful walks ( the maps we got from the tourist information centre) and visited many of the chateaux around. We would have liked more information before we arrived but the local mayor helped us find the place as we arrived late. Some of the equipment in the kitchen needed replacing and having access to some wood would have also been nice as the open fire is terrific. Another chair in the lounge room was also needed. However we totally enjoyed our time here.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

What a pleasure to stay with Sarah and Jean-Michel. The Cottage is welcoming and a delight to stay in. It exceeded our expectations, was even more than we had hoped for. Not only was The Cottage well set up and comfortable, it was warm and inviting, it felt like a home. Knowing that we could travel around the Loire Valley and come home to sit and relax only after a short drive from many of the splendid sights within the area made the overall experience sensational.

We would come back here time and time again, without hesitation.

Wonderful historic cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage at Montresor was a lovely place to stay. It's location was an ideal base for exploring the Loire Valley as many of the popular attractions are an easy drive away. The local Chateau is also well worth a visit. I was made most welcome with the provision of fresh baguette, jam and milk to kick start the stay. The gardens are a delight and enjoyed with a glass of wine or two.

As a solo traveler the cottage was spacious and comfortable though two or more people would easily be accommodated. Highly recommended.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our little house in the Orchard...... it was just wonderful! The village is just short walk away.... it has everything you need, grocery store, gas, pharmacy, bank, restaurant and tourist office. All staffed by very friendly folks. There are wonderful walks around the area and it's a short distance to many of the Loire Valley Chateaux. There is a chateau in the village that is open for visitors.

The house itself is very comfortable. We had several days of rain..... it was nice just to relax and read. ( Lots of good books in English.) The kitchen is well equipped....did lots of cooking since there was rain. The kitchen and dining room look out on the garden filled with flowers and trees. One morning while eating breakfast we watched a woodpecker hunt for his breakfast in one of the apple trees. Gathered apples and made applesauce .......Just lots to do if you want to be on the go and a lovely place to unwind and relax. Looking forward to our next visit!
