“What a treat!”
Reviewed 3 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Having only booked for one week we wished we were staying longer. This is a comfortable home from home cottage with all amenities: an exceptionally comfortable bed, a sofa bed for two more guests if required, TV with British channels, WiFi, use of a free standing pool, washing machine etc, etc. Everything one needs for a comfortable stay is here and the owners, Jo and Paul, are splendid, friendly and helpful hosts. There is much to do in the area including visiting many chateaux, Fontrevaud Abbey, caves; Lac Rillé and its steam train. Add the use of cycles and pretty woodland walks on the doorstep what could be better? We had a wonderful time and the gite us amazing value for money. We were so sad to leave.

“Beautiful and totally relaxing.”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This was the best part of our summer holidays! The area is stunning with many different and interesting towns nearby to visit. The gite itself is stunning - very comfortable with everything you need, bedroom is especially nice, with lovely views over the countryside and a very comfy bed. There is a lake nearby (10min drive) that you can swim in and woods on the door step to walk in and explore. If you want peace and quiet, but still close to towns and attractions then you can't go wrong. Jo is also a great host, nothing was too much trouble.

“A tranquil oasis in rural France with easy access to the major attractions of the Loire region.”
Reviewed 19 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

If you like being in rural France, near to pretty villages, amazing chateau and, of course, some of the most famous and talented wine makers and food producers in the world, you will love staying here. Add to the mix a charming, tastefully renovated gite, and you're almost in paradise. However, not so fast! Jo and Paul also happen to be the kind of hosts that manage to hit that crucial balance between respecting the privacy of their guests and also being available to provide guidance and advice on local events and amenities. Nothing was too much trouble and they will do their level best to facilitate and enable you to enjoy your own particular brand of French holiday experience. We returned from two weeks in La Petite Maison Sue almost a week ago and we already want to return! Many thanks Jo and Paul for making our stay so memorable and, I hope, remaining our friends for years to come.

“Fairytale Cottage”
Reviewed 15 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We have just spent a phenomenal 10 days at this venue, and it is out of this world - literally. right in the heart of rural France; the loudest noise is the birds, and the sound a lizard makes, scurrying across the chippings! And yet, it seems, the gite is only about half an hour away from everything: Chateaux, Wine 'caves', Troglodyte dwellings, Abbey, gardens, and the odd Zoo, not to mention, some really good places to eat (and drink!). Coupled with all this is the charming hospitality of its owner, Jo, for whom it seems, nothing is too much trouble, be it for information about the gite or the locality. All in all, a prize package, and well worth the money!

“Relaxing holuday”
Reviewed 25 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed for a week here recently and it was wonderful. The Gite is very well equipped with everything you need to make this a perfect home from home. The complimentary groceries on arrival were very much appreciated. The property is in a lovely peaceful area but is only a short drive to many of the chateaux and highlights of this part of the Loire valley. We would highly recommend this accommodation for your stay in France.
