“The most relaxing and memorable holiday we have had.”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My husband and I and our 9 year old son decided on a different type of holiday this year. Usually paying over the odds for expensive all inclusive package holidays we fancied a change. It was without doubt the best holiday we have had. We booked two weeks and on arrival were greeted by the lovely owner Helen, she made us feel instantly welcome. We met the other families staying in the other gites who we're sitting in the courtyard enjoying the evening sun and a BBQ. The gites are basic but well equipped with everything you need, ours had a wet room which had a great power shower. The whole atmosphere gave us the instant impression we had chosen the correct holiday. We spent many days out in the surrounding towns enjoying the ambience of France. There is plenty to do and always good advice from other families there on places to visit. There is a pool which all the children loved jumping in and out of, with all the new friends they had made. We didn't go out every day because it was so nice to spend the day in such a tranquille village relaxing and reading while the children played together. I would highly recommend this holiday, the whole experience is just what we needed and the hands on advice from the owner who could never do enough to help was so welcoming. Helen is running a beautiful holiday home which we will definitely return to! Thanks to Helen and her family we have had a wonderful experience :))

“A little dated & run down”

We booked this last year & had planned to stay 6 nights but we're disappointed from the moment of arrival. We only stayed one night. Had arranged a meal which was excellent. We were aware of difficult circumstances that the owner had faced but we found the cottage dated & lacking in basic equipment - couldn't even find 4 plates or glasses that matched. Pool out of action as it had been drained & due to weather owner was unable to get it up & running. Thought we could have been advised about this before arrival. More isolated than we had expected. Needs some improvements as everything seemed tired & neglected.

“A very enjoyable stay”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Croix Joreau, it was a nice quiet village and a good location for exploring the Loire area. Helen and John were very hospitable and friendly, and they do a very nice meal as well. The gites are homely and comfortable. Good value.

“Fantastic holiday location. Great for families!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013 for a stay in August 2011

The gites are around a courtyard where families/groups can sit and eat and play boule. The Larders are superb hosts, for whom nothing is too inconvenient. The pool is welcome in the heat and a lovely setting to relax. The bakers is a short 3 minute walk to collect bread. There is a small children's play area and a grassy lawn on which to play cricket/ football. The setting of la croix joreau is superb, with plenty to do and see within a short drive. Zoo de doue is fantastic for a day out with children. We have returned here on 3 occasions and we would recommend it to anyone.
