“Beautiful cottage and gorgeous area”
Reviewed 12 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This is a lovely cottage set on 3 floors. It is tastefully furnished, comfortable and has everything you could want. The kitchen is well equipped with full sized utilities and a useful laundry area. There is plenty of cooking utensils and lovely crockery. It has big rooms with plenty of storage

The area is beautiful. Chinon is a lovely old town, with a lot of history. We visited all the local chateau's and we're all worth the visit as they all had their own unique stories and vistas.

We nearly didn't go to chateau de-Azey-le-Rideau as I had read that it had scaffolding around it. It mostly is but you still see what it is like as part of it isn't covered and the grounds are lovely. The town is well worth going to and very picturesque. We went on a Friday and a market set up in the afternoon. We had a lovely meal at the Relais de la salamandre which is a restaurant grill

“A lovely gite, a quaint village and a lovely part of the world.”
Reviewed 4 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This lovely little house had everything we needed. It accommodated four of us very comfortably and had lovely outdoor spaces. The village has a great butcher and baker, bar and restaurant. The location is very central to many lovely chateaux and vineyards and Chinon is closeby (10 minutes drive) for more choice of restaurants and bars. Francoise could not have been more helpful and charming and we were only sorry that we didn't book to stay 2 weeks and not just one.

Thank you very much for taking the time to post about your stay at the La Maison Marissou. Your high rating and positive comments mean a lot to us. And you are right about Huismes ant its surroundings : it definitely deserves an extended stay. In which case, we will be more than happy to welcome you again at La Maison Marissou ! Merci encore !

“A delightful cottage in a wonderful little village”
Reviewed 24 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

From the outset communication with Franciose was fantastic. Our group of 4 were warmly welcomed by Francoise and her equally charming siblings Martine and Laurent.
Nothing was ever to much bother and they even arranged in advance a Doctors appointment for one of our group. We felt so sad to leave our genuinely warm,funny and hospitable hosts.
The cosy cottage is very well equiped ..we particularly appreciated the washing machine and the goodies that were supplied to help start our week.
The village butcher and, bakery are wonderful . Despite speaking very little French the locals were incredibly helpful and friendly.
We highly reccomend the Auberge restaurant which is just a 5 minute walk away. The chef had just changed the menu the evening we dined there and he explained everything from top to bottom. Absolutely lovely food in a lovely little restaurant..
Huismes is a perfect location for exploring the Loire and La Maison Marissou the most delightful cottage to return to at the end of the day.The cottage worked particularly well for our group of two couples and we would highly reccomend staying .
Thank you Francoise,Martine and Laurent !

“It would be hard to beat La Marissou for charm, comfort and cleanliness.”

Our six week stay here flew by. The house was perfect for our needs: beautifully presented, very well-equipped and warm, with a welcoming atmosphere. Huismes is equally charming, having a great bar/café (serves really tasty dishes at lunch-time which are super value), excellent butcher's and good baker's. The auberge is another option if you want to eat locally. There is also a very popular visiting fish stall. There are many varied walks (rivers, forests, small hamlets) to take without getting in a car, but plenty more to keep you busy only a few miles away. Chinon itself is a lovely, interesting town. The owners of this gite are thoroughly charming and do an excellent job in preparing the house for visitors. Pretty faultless all round! We are very keen to return.

“Pretty Perfect”
Reviewed 13 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

From the moment I began my booking process with Francoise I knew I had made the right choice. It's comforting when you can feel the commitment to excellence through emails, I knew this would be a great experience and it was !! Great cottage, extremely clean and fresh and such a well appointed kitchen, everything was there, well set up for bbq outside and immaculately clean area. Sitting room is divine. The ambiance of the cottage is charming as is the whole village. The location to the marvellous Chateau is perfect. The vineyards around the area are stunning and the fortress of Chinon sublime. We miss you beautiful Huismes!!!
