With the key safe you are free to arrive whenever you like after the gîte becomes available but either ourselves (Felicity & Chris) who live on the main site or British friends (Sue & Andy), who live nearby, are always available to answer questions or help if things go wrong or if you can't work the washing machine etc.

Reviewed 29 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This beautiful cottage is located less than 30 mins north of Saumur and with easy access of the chateaux of the Loire Valley. The property is spotlessly clean, not a cobweb to be seen on the lovely rustic beams. An enormous welcome basket of goodies ensures you can instantly settle in for a most comfortable stay. Upstairs the bedrooms and...

Management response:

Thank you! We try to keep the cobwebs at bay - but other readers please be aware that some come back as quickly as we take them away! We will always pop over and de-cobweb you if needed.

We recently stayed in this wonderful cottage. There was everything we could possible want at the cottage. A great pool, bikes, table tennis, barbecue, not to mention the welcome pack waiting for us when we arrived. Felicity had also left us a bottle of champagne, some flowers and chocolates as it was our 35th wedding anniversary the day we arrived....

Management response:

Thank you! We are so pleased that you enjoyed everything. The mother Partridge is still walking her youngsters to the pond to drink every evening and they have all survived so far. For others reading this review, it may help to know that we do all sorts of special occasion extras, too many to include in the main advertisement -...

Chris and Felicity leave a welcome pack that contains everything that you need immediately. Bread, milk, jams, pasta, napkins, and much much more. The cottage is exceptionally well equipped with everything that you could need. We took...

Thank you to both of you and we wish you a really good second stay in September! Felicity and Chris
