Beside the Loire, it can get quite cold in December; however, arriving to see in the New Year, we opened the door to a delightful, warm and cosy cottage in which we immediately felt at home. Riverside Cottage has an abundance of character, inside and out, and is just what we were looking for.
Spacious, comfortable, well-appointed and clearly well looked-after, it was a wrench to leave Riverside Cottage and go out and explore, but we did, and were duly rewarded. The nearby towns of Angers and Saumur are surrounding area are wonderful, naturally beautiful and historically fascinating. Colin and Miriam have ensured there is a wide array of brochures and guides to satisfy the most inquisitive visitor and, indeed, the cottage is ideally located to take advantage of this lovely part of France.
I can think of no higher recommendation than returning oneself for another stay, and that is precisely what we will be doing!

“Authentic 'shabby chic' Loire gite.”

Charming little cottage, useful location, good value for money, helpful relaxed owners. Garden delightful but a little unruly when we stayed. Very close to road, but this wasn' t a problem. Lots of charming original features, tho kitchen and bathroom a little basic. Overall, good value as a base for touring around the area.

Thank you for your review. It's great to know that you enjoyed your stay at the cottage and the footpath along the Loire River. Often walking West at Sunset the river turns to liquid gold!

Great to hear that you both enjoyed your stay at the cottage. The garden was a little slow to get going this year due to an exceptionally cold winter. Traffic on the road is even less frequent during the summer holidays, (July to end September).

“A blissful end to our tour of Europe”
Reviewed December 23, 2011 for a stay in December 2011

We had brilliant autumnal weather during our stay at the cottage which we found to be very comfortable, clean and nicely furnished. We liked the decoration too, it felt very French. It was a real treat to help ourselves to fruit and veg. Especially the feijoas, raspberries and kiwifruit. There were some lovely plants in the flower garden which was a bonus. My partner and I particularly enjoyed the river walk and cycling the quiet roads and exploring what the area had to offer. Bus service was reliable, very handy. The whole experience was hassle-free. A perfect end to our European tour.
