I was initially a little hesitant when I noted that my wife had booked this Gite with only two rooms, with no lounge and near the centre of Tours but our week there actually worked brilliantly.

Laurence, the lady owner is friendly and helpful and speaks much better English than she admits to. We were invited to snacks and coffee with her family twice during our stay which was a nice touch.

Car parking is in a very quiet street right in front of the Gite. We had no trouble parking in front of the accommodation during our stay.

The Gite consists of one large bedroom with two single beds pushed together to create one quite large double bed; a smallish kitchenette with a small metal table and three chairs; a gas hob and electric oven with combined dishwasher. There is a medium size bathroom with hand-held shower and washing machine. There is a separate toilet with cupboard storage between the two rooms. Note, that there are no comfortable lounge chairs to sit on, but that did not worry us during our stay.

What was particularly pleasant was that, with the shutters closed at night, the bedroom was dark and the area was superbly quiet. We had just come from one month living in Paris in the second arrondissement, which was horrifically noisy at all hours, so this peace and quiet was heaven.

To our surprise Tours is a great town with a superb Basilica, a great old town, superb main railway station and delicious foods. Just five minutes walk away from the gite is a covered market (Les Halles) with a superb collection of boucheries, charcuteries, patisseries and fruiteries. On the Saturday we went to the largest fresh produce market we have ever been to in the square just outside Les Halles. On the Sunday we visited another absolutely huge clothes and bric-a brac market in the centre of Tours along Rue National – where the trams run from. It was absolutely crowded by 10.15am, so get there early.

Laurence said that if guests are staying with her and need washing and or dishwashing powder for their stay just to ask her.

“Well placed gite in Tours”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

A nice little gite for 2 people. The owners are lovely and live next door - on hand if you need them but very discreet. The gite is 10 minutes walk from Place Plumereau, the covered market, the Botanical Gardens and the main shopping areas. Easy parking nearby so going off in the car to explore the Loire was no problem. There is little space in the kitchen to prepare a meal but there are numerous places to eat nearby. There is no lounge /comfy seats but this wasn't a problem for us - just something to be aware of when booking. We'd stay there again if we returned to Tours.
