    Instructions to find property were not adequate and made it sound as if the owner lived there. The garden down to the river was not directly accessible and involved walking pass the next door's garden and clambering down a very steep slope. The property stated that final cleaning was included, and no paid cleaning service offered. This meant that most of the penultimate day was spent cleaning a not very clean house, which was not very clean when we arrived.

    The Gîte itself was comfortable and well-equipped and within easy reach of Chinon as we expected. However, from the description, photos and the name we expected the property to be within a private garden and right next to the river, whereas the reality was that the house is in a close-knit group of four properties, sharing a narrow garden and access with one. The riverside garden was accessed by walking past 2 other properties and was also shared with them. There is a private garden through a gate at the side of the property. The other gîtes have a different owner and are rented out through another company.

    excellent location for chilling out lack of amenities not a problem in fact a blessing. Unfortunately could not say cleanliness was as expected.
