The cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed in it. The family was helpful and gave us great advice! We really enjoyed lounging around the pool and swimming a few lengths to loosen out after a day on the bicycles!

Getting around
To get the most out of your holiday and to see as many of the beautiful sights the Loire Valley has to offer we do recommend you hire a car. However, The Cottage is set in a beautiful area with many fantastic sights to be seen via bicycle. The roads are well maintained and easy to ride along, it is a cyclists paradise! If you do not have your own bikes, they can be hired from the Tourist Office in the nearby town of Le Grand Pressigny.
