“A fabulous retreat within easy distance of many attractions”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The owner was welcoming, hospitable and helpful, opening his home with complete freedom. The property was everything we had hoped for- a real home from home, with all facilities necessary for a week's stay. We especially liked the garden, barbecue, balcony leading from the bedroom and the privacy. The location was just right- away from the local villages but within 10 minutes drive of the nearest town, Loches. As the weather was perfect, we spent most of our time in the garden ( a little too shady?) and were kept amused by the wildlife- red squirrel, lizards, robin and bats to name a few.

“Tranquil”

A friend and I stayed for 3 weeks in this one location. When booking, we were initially concerned that 3 weeks may be too long of a stay and that we might exhaust the exploration of sites and surrounding areas well before that. But, no, we filled our time quite easily and often went off the beaten track to experience the local life. The Loire Valley is quite beautiful. During our stay, the weather was cooler than normal, and we experienced scattered showers almost daily. However, we just learned to work around the showers and adjust our schedules. Not a problem! A car is a must. We rented a car in Paris at CDG Airport. Prior to leaving on vacation, I downloaded maps of France onto my own GPS and brought that along, and so there was never any stress navigating. This is a less expensive option than renting a car with GPS! Our host, Philip, was always available by phone if we had any questions regarding the cottage. The cottage is exactly as depicted on Trip Advisor. No surprises. We had free WiFi and because Philip had a phone plan, he was able to offer us the use of the phone to make long distance telephone calls home to Canada free of charge. Because the cottage is nestled among trees, I'd recommend bringing an extra sweater or two for sitting outside as, depending on the time of day, I often found I was in shade. The cottage is just a few minutes from a local bakery and butcher, and under 10 minutes from a gas station and a large supermarket. However, another few minutes beyond that takes you into Loches where there are wonderful specialty shops and the local market on select days. If you enjoy a rural get-a-way, and enjoy the experience of staying in someone's home and are respectful of that opportunity, then you will truly experience "living like a local". Enjoy your stay! We did!
