Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Really spacious accommodation. The top floor is perfect for a teenager. Well equipped and the owners are really friendly. Oct 2011.
  2. Excellent location and the owners are so friendly. The cottage is very well equipped in a nice rural location - only 10mins drive from Saumur. Sept 2011.
  3. This is a fantastic property surrounded by vineyards and woodlands. Set back from the main road it allowed for peaceful relaxation whilst only being a short drive away from the center of town and local amenities. The property is spacious and well presented and the swimming pool is a lovely feature. We explored the area by car and pedal-bike (the Loire valley has excellent cycle tracks). We participated in the wine festival at Saumur and wine tasting at some of the many vineyards in the area - the wine is fantastic and the region has an understandably growing reputation. We will be heading back to this property in future having had a wonderful holiday. Sept 2011.
  4. The cottage was excellent and had everything we needed. The pool was also perfect which our daughters really enjoyed. May 2011.
  5. We are planning a trip back already. May 2011.
  6. Perfect retreat, quiet and peaceful with civilisation close to hand. April 2011.
  7. Location, cleanliness, decor and the helpfulness of owners. Oct 2010.
  8. Excellent location, quiet with wonderful views of the vineyard. particularly enjoyed the ability to dine outside making use of table/chairs in the decking area along with the barbecue. Aug 2010.
  9. Liked its situation and surroundings - peaceful and beautiful. Spacious but not empty. Superb swimming pool. Aug 2010.
  10. A lovely, atmospheric, very well decorated property maintained to a very high standard. Great little pool and charming helpful owner. Have been visiting France for 35 years and this is one of the best. June 2010.
