A lovely gite, perfect for a couple / with young baby. Everything you need is here, from washing machine, dishwasher, coffee maker etc.. BBQ and table and chairs in the garden which gets wonderful sun in the evening. About 10-15 minute drive from a huge supermarket to stock up on everything you need. Bakery a couple of minutes drive away as well. Very well located to visit vineyards and chateaus.
We were on our way to the Vendee and decided to stop in the Loire Valley for a few days. Just wish we could have stayed longer! The property is situated ideally to vist the region with its vinyards and Chateaux of the Loire.
Françoise and Laurent were so friendly and helpful, lovely comfortable cottage in a very nice area. We only managed to scratch the surface and as such, we'll be calling in again hopefully armed with better French as promised.
Fantastic gite just a 5-10 minute drive from Chinon with all the amenities you could hope for. Really well equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge area and large bathroom with a great wet room! Everything was spotlessly clean when we arrived and we were happy to find the owners had left us a bottle of wine and homemade jams, milk and butter in the fridge too. Fantastic pool (not that we used it in February).
Francoise, Martine and Laurent the owners spoke fluent English and were lovely, friendly, helpful hosts greeting us when we arrived. Only negative I would say about this place is the steepish steps inside from the bedroom down to the bathroom, not suitable for anyone elderly or not very mobile otherwise just perfect! Chinon is a beautiful city, well worth a visit.
La Luzege is charming, cosy, a little bit quirky but with excellent modern facilities, including an air-co unit in the bedroom! Wow! The cottage is quietly situated on the edge of Beaumont, surrounded by vineyards but less than 10 minutes from Chinon by car. Many of the most important historic sites of the Touraine are less than an hour's drive away, which makes it an ideal base for sightseeing.
Francoise, Laurent and Martine are excellent hosts, attentive, helpful and very interesting to talk to. They couldn't make you feel more welcome.
There are 2 eateries within walking distance, bit Dans un Jardin appeared to be closed, so can't comment, and Hotel de la Girauderie were quite sniffy about needing to have a reservation; however Chinon is full of good restaurants.
Book yourself a stay - you won't be disappointed.
