    A really lovely, peaceful and spacious* property that was very comfortable for all nine of us. It appears to have been recently refurbished, with a large and nicely landscaped garden, and the pool was excellent and very well maintained. The proprietors were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Some of the best bits of the Loire Valley are only 20 minutes away. The property is quite remote so a car is essential for getting to the shops which are very few and far between in this area. *The only thing we struggled with was the kitchen, which is tiny for a house that sleeps 12 people, and was hard work when trying to cook for everyone. It really does need to be bigger and better equipped for that number of people. We would recommend this for anyone visiting the Loire Valley, so long as you have a car and don't mind some travelling.
