Janet and Stephen made us very welcome in their lovely farm gite. The gite itself was exceptionally well presented, with all of the usual mod-cons, two large bedrooms and disabled friendly; no steps, wet room shower, and so forth. There's obviously been a great deal of though put into the renovation of these buildings and it both shows and works.
Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts, who not only gave use a heads-up on where to visit, how to get there and when to go, but even books restaurants for us, to help with the terrible French we could manage between us. Much appreciated.
A delightful gite, in a wonderful part of France, nice and quiet but not to far away from larger towns. We enjoyed it enough to start looking for properties in the locale to buy to retire to...
Stayed here for 2 days passing through from London, having seen it before with my wife 2 years ago I wanted to stay in the self contained apartment. On arrival late on Tuesday the hosts helped me to settle in and made sure most importantly that I knew where the underfloor heating controls for each room were! Coffee and tea making facilities in the room and croissants and pastries in the main house when I woke up. They have a gym on site that I didn't use but looks very extensive and horses roaming plus two very large and very cute enormous Great Danes! On the Wednesday they helped me to visit a nearby town of Loche, and I also passed through Descartes (birthplace of the great philosopher) and being somewhat foodies they wanted to share info on Michelin star restaurants but I simply didn't have time. Wonderful hosts and I'm looking forward to bringing my family through on our next trip to France. Thank you!
The house was very fresh and clean and comfortable. It had all we needed in furniture and cooking equipment with plenty of storage in the kitchen.
We enjoyed our breakfasts outside and barbecue in the private garden.
I would highly recommend it for 4 people who want a break in the beautiful country side of the Loire Valley. There is an adjoining house and a couple of other lets if you want a big gathering.
Janet Scoley was a very welcoming host.
