Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. We had a lovely stay at the cottage, very peaceful. Very well equipped, everything you needed with the supply of towels and bed linen as we arrived on a motorbike. Only a short walk to village. May 2012.
  2. This was a good location for exploring the many different, chateaux and other interesting places. We enjoyed the troglodges and self guided walking tours in Chinon and Saumur. The tourist office in Saumur was very helpful and provided leaflets for these walks. You can get good deals on entry fees here too. Another week would have been nice to visit more vineyards and a few more Chateaux. April 2012.
  3. Beautiful location. Aug 2010.
  4. Very well located and central for exploring the Loire Valley. Room comfortably furnished, very pleasant and helpful owners who were visiting their own property on site during our stay. Fontevraud is a lovely village and is easy to walk to from the property. April 2010.
  5. The dining area was roomy and the lounge cosy with the log burner. The central heating was efficient and there were plenty of logs in the wood shed. The house was well equipped, extra blankets were provided and the beds were of good quality and comfortable. It was an excellent base for all local amenities and tourist sites. Feb 2010.
  6. The property is in an excellent area with so many interesting places to visit. The village itself was really nice and the property being so close to the Abbey was a bonus.
