Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The Gite was well equipped and tastefully decorated and fitted. The town is beautiful. The host and his wife were very helpful and charming, lovely people. I would strongly recommend this property. June 2012.
  2. The owners live next door so were on hand for any issues and to give advice/recommendations on everything from places to eat to where to hire a bicycle. May 2012.
  3. This was a gorgeous property, beautifully furbished and excellently equipped. We were almost reluctant to leave it for day trips! The photographs on line did not do it justice. The situation was perfect - on the edge of a beautiful and historic village (Candes) and also a lovely little town (Montsereau) with all facilities, restaurants within easy walking distance. The view from the house was superb - the gardens looked directly over the Loire - very tranquil, beautiful sunsets with only the sound of the birds, frogs and cicadas. Last, but by no means least, despite the fact that the property was attached to that of the owners, they were extremely discreet, respecting our privacy at all times yet approachable, helpful and very friendly when required. We highly recommend this property to others. July 2011.
  4. We have stayed at many cottages in France and Italy over a number of years and this one is by far and away the best in terms of accommodation and location. It has stunning views over the confluence of the Loire and Vienne rivers, and the owners are delightful people. James speaks English extremely well and is a helpful, charming, affable and warm host. May 2011.
  5. Just a note for those with small children, there is no bath and there is a driveway between the house and the garden used by the owners. The wall around the garden is high enough to stop little ones. April 2011.
  6. We liked everything about the property which had been furnished to a very high standard. The owners were very welcoming and friendly yet not intrusive. The river view from the property was fantastic and the two local villages were attractive and offered plenty of places to eat. Would definitely recommend this property to others. Aug 2010.
  7. La Confluence has a great location and furnished with exceptional taste. It’s clean and tidy, well equipped. The owners are very friendly. It’s a great place for those who would like to relax but also for those who are more for spending their holidays in an active way. Good starting point for everyone who wish to discover the French history. July 2010.
  8. Excellent location right next to the river with wondeful views, and the decor, and fit and finishing of the property was very high quality. Aug 2009.
  9. Modern and well maintained property. Very friendly host who lives next door. Property is ideally situated (better than brochure photo) overlooking the confluence of the Loire and the Vierne rivers. Free use of bikes and gas BBQ. Free WiFi internet access. Walkable to both charming villages of Candes-St-Martin and Montsoreau. Perfect high quality location as a base for visiting the Loire. Private remotely operated gates provided security. Even better than the brochure picture and description. July 2009.
  10. Everything about this property was wonderful - the garden, the buildings, the furniture and fittings - and an idyllic setting. Aug 2009.
  11. The house is a beautiful and tranquil place to stay. The owners make you very welcome and Candes St Martin is a lovely typical French village. July 2009.
