Wonderful House, Amazing Service
We saw the photos online and decided the house was perfect for three friends touring the Loire Valley. When we started communicating with Marie about the house and the area we were amazed by how responsive she was, always a reply within hours. Marie shared so much information what to see and do that there was no way to do it all.
When we arrived at the house we were late due to traffic, road construction and rain. Marie was so gracious when we called to let her know we were delayed. When we finally got there she welcomed us so warmly, showing us all of the features of the house and really made us feel at home.
While we were there Marie catered a meal for us, even taking into account three very different diets and did an amazing job. She prepared a meal of local specialties that was delicious.
The location was perfect, a little out in the country but close to plenty of shops and restaurants. We liked that we didn't have to deal with city traffic every day.
Ultimately, we were very sorry to leave. The warmth and hospitality of Marie made the week so much nicer than we could have imagined. I'm kind of glad we didn't see everything on our list, that's an excellent excuse to go back to visit Marie!
ts, it was such a pleasure to receive you at Une Maison, Un Jardin. To help you to build the best program for your week. of course, a week is not enough! There are still so many Chateaus to visit, other beautiful point of view! To invite you to discover the best in the region, and to hear your enthusiasm after the visits was delightful. Your friendship and your laugh was like a sunny day! Come back when you want! The house and Marie wait for you!
Wonderful accommodations in a quiet setting
We were two senior couples exploring the Loire region in particular its chateaux. Marie was extremely helpful and gave us very useful information about the region and what it had to offer. Her house was very welcoming. We had ample room for the four of us and the kitchen was well-stocked. We would highly recommend Marie’s house for a quiet stay in a convenient location just outside of Tours while exploring the Loire Valley.
Dear guests from US, it was a real pleasure to receive you. To listen to your envy, and to help you to build an interesting program during your stay. With what are your main center of interest: chateaus, Leonardo da Vinci 500 years birthday of the Renaissance, with all his creations and inventions you saw in CLOS de LUCÉ, his house in AMBOISE. It was so good to hear your discovery and enthusiasm. Come back, you will be very welcome!
A lovely place
We loved our stay! The owner is friendly and gracious, the house and yard were clean, well appointed, and highly functional. The space is somewhat quirky, with sloped ceilings upstairs, but spacious and artful. It is a removed and quiet location, yet with nearby shopping - and a great centralized location for getting to many Château’s (as well as wineries and other activities we didn’t elect to enjoy). I would gladly return for another fabulous stay!
Hi, thanks for your kind words. It was really a pleasure to receive all of you, to show the places interesting to visit, the winery in which to have a tasting. Walks around to do, what to explore in TOURS CITY! Yes, there are a lot of other activities to do, workshop, art crafts, exhibitions, and experiment a trip on ancient boats, with an "aperitif", or a pick-nick( Mary can prepare it for you. Just to be ordered 2 days before). Come back, you know you will be very welcome! We hope to see you again soon! All the best to everyone.
A most relaxing holiday.
There were three generations of our family staying at Marie’s holiday home. She was very kind and did her best to help us with all our questions. The gite is set In the country so it was a very restful and relaxing holiday. Very clean, well equipped excellent beds and towels supplied and very relaxing. It was very hot so an outside parasol would have been welcome and possibly a bbq but we didn’t ask so perhaps we should have done, also we felt if Marie had put together an information book with details of supermarkets etc it would be good but again she answered everything if we asked.. We would definitely return in the future and would recommend .
Hi, dear guests, it was a pleasure to receive your family. The questions, your interest to see, to visit, to find the good place for your envy was so pleasant. Yes, you are right, the parasol was there, just inside, cause with such a heat, everyone stayed in the house to keep freshness. If you wanted it, It would have been brought. That's true that these ancient house with large walls keep freshness. The BBQ was also ready for use in the barn. Next time, just on arrival, We will think to propose you.
Thanks for your remark. We always send the list of shops proximity one, and super markets around, on the guests email before the arrival, with the list of the outside markets in TOURS. You have found the list of the markets; the list of the Chateaus and how far they are, we will print too the list of the close shops. Your advice always help us to do better our job. We are waiting for you, for new dates. It's so easy to come!
A lovely stay in a beautiful place
My husband and I and his two sisters stayed for a week. Marie, the owner, lives next door and was a great host. Very friendly and helpful with suggestions on things to do, and always responsive when we had a request. The house is quirky and different, nicely renovated and Marie has decorated it with some lovely and unusual pieces. We had a great stay and would absolutely recommend it. We hope to be back one day.
It was also very kind to have you as hosts! The house is made for that. The Chateaus visits are easy from this location, you can visit also the wine makers around. Or decide to stay and relax, walk along the river, or bike for one or two days. You have still to discover... We will receive you again with pleasure!
ideal to visit the Chateaus and bike on LOIRE circuits
The house is well situated, all Chateaus are close, the farest at one hour drive. We bike along the river, and admire the landscape. A good vacation address.
