propriété très bien entretenue et bel accueil
Très bon week-end entre amis dans cette jolie maison très bien équipée. Le jardin est superbe et bien entretenu ainsi que la piscine.
Merci à Jane et Doug!
Really good place to stay especially with kids.
We have recently returned from a fabulous week away here. The pool really made this place as the children were occupied all week. The Set up of the garden was great in that there was various places to sit and relax in the sun or the shade. The owners were nice and friendly and let the children meet the horses.
The property was clean and well maintained with good facilities
The house is situated in a lovely peaceful rural location. We very much enjoyed the swimming pool and other outdoor equipment.
The house had all we needed to make our stay comfortable and was clean and cool.
There are plenty of interesting places to visit without travelling too far.
A large supermarket and bakery are within a 10 min drive.
The owners were very helpful and friendly making us feel very welcome.
2 weeks in the southern Loire Valley
We had a great holiday. The villa was just as described on the website and Jane and Doug's hospitality was fantastic. We particularly appreciated the private heated pool which made swimming an absolute pleasure, even if there was a nip in the air. We recommend Jane's wine tasting trip. We had a fab day and a wonderful meal. I was good not to have to organise the day and be driven!
lovely place to stay
The property is a good size, well-maintained and full of charm. With 2 teen boys and a 12 year old girl it was very useful to have so many bathrooms, English t.v. and a dining room table for board games! The garden was a great space with the pool a huge success. We enjoyed swing-ball, table tennis and badminton but could also have tried boules and croquet!
In the local area, we would highly recommend the go-karts. They do mini-karts for younger children up to about 12 and full size karts for older children and adults. The track was excellent! The nearby town of Loches is pretty and well worth a visit. Further afield, the chateau of Cheverny is great for those who remember watching Tintin and Amboise has lots to offer.
Jane and Doug were helpful and friendly hosts with useful advice on nearby facilities.
I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.
A peaceful paradise with lovely swimming pool
We have just returned from a wonderful fortnight at ‘Maison de Maitre’. We were looking for the perfect ‘Get Away From It All’ and we found it here. The house is pleasantly situated in a large private garden. The lovely swimming pool is situated in its own enclosure complete with sun beds and large shaded cover. It is about 1.2m deep making it perfect for pool volleyball as well as swimming.
Outside the house is a terraced area complete with two large garden tables and chairs and shaded cover. We spent many hours out here, chatting, drinking, eating all our meals and playing Bridge into the evening. Inside the house is comfortably furnished and well equipped including with freeview UK Satellite so the boys (12,14 & 53!) could listen to Test Match Special on R5SX and keep an eye on the Open Golf. The house’s old stone walls mean the house remains cool even when the outside temperate is in the mid 30’s. There is a 3G signal at the house however wifi is not available unless you go to the owners property next door. Given our desire to ‘get away from it all’ this level of connectivity suited us fine.
The house is situated South of the main wine growing area of the Loire Valley. It takes about an hour to reach the wine centres and chateaux for which the area is renowned. We had a wonderful day visiting the amazing renaissance gardens at Chateaux Villandry and doing some tasting of Vouvray wine. Lovely! The nearest Supermarket, which provided all we needed, is about ten minutes drive away in Chatillon sur Indre There is also a traditional open air market in Loches which is about twenty minutes away.
The British owners live next door to the gite and are on hand to help with any questions or problems including: daily maintenance of the swimming pool; recommending restaurants and places to taste wine; contacting the local vet for the required check before returning to the UK and even replacing the ball of the swing ball when the boys manage to blast the old one off! (Thank you Jane!)
The arrangement of the house and garden was very suitable for our dog as it is enclosed and private and we felt Duffy was made very welcome. There are short and longer walks available from the house along the tracks and green lanes that surround the house.
So for us – a fortnight in paradise. We loved it and hope to return. Thank you very much.
Thank you both for your lovely review. We are still working on the wifi and hope to have it installed in the gite soon. This is rural France! Hope to see you again soon?
