Recent Centre-Loire Valley reviews

  • Loved it.

    "This was a great place. The town is charming and great to walk around in. The apartment is spacious, clean and comfortable. The modern appliances were much appreciated and saved us from eating out constantly. The washer/dryer were much appreciated after traveling for a week. Free parking is about a block away which is great considering this area would be difficult to visit without a car. Sandra has a very detailed book instructing visitors how to work the French appliances which avoided a lot of frustrations. Since there were 3 of us, it was so convenient to have the second bathroom and bedroom. I highly recommend this property for those visiting the Loire."

  • Wonderful stay in a beautiful part of France!!

    "We had a wonderful 10 day stay here with our four young children. The property is absolutely beautiful, with a huge front yard green area for the kids to run and play in, secure fenced woods above on the hill behind the property, and a wonderful large circular drive that the kids had a fantastic time on with scooters provided by Marie-Noelle. Whenever we were home, the kids were outside playing. The location is excellent, very central and close to four or five of the key chateaus in Loire Valley, with many more smaller attractions close by as well. We drove to Futuroscope one day as well, which the kids absolutely loved (we highly recommend it!), saw Chambord, Chenonchau, Cheverney, Azay-le-Rideau and Villandry, all within 10-45 minutes from the property. It's perfectly situated between Tours and Amboise with easy access to either. The house is set on three floors, with a large master on the second and a very large neat top floor bedroom with plenty of room for the four kids. There are nice clean bathrooms on each of the bedroom floors. The house is very clean and feels recently renovated, with nice hardwood floors upstairs and plenty of space. The kitchen and living room are on the ground floor. The river is just minutes away, and down a bit further toward Amboise is a canoe rental facility on the river-shore. The kids had a grand time canoeing from there down to Chenonchau Chateau, about a 90 minute round trip journey on the very easy and slow-moving Cher River for about 50 Euros for two canoes and 6 people. Wonderful river trip for any young kids comfortable around water. Marie-Noelle was a wonderful owner and took great care of us, dropping off occasional fresh baked breads and cheese and helping us with any questions. The property also has a nice indoor pool that the kids swam in, although not as much as they wanted since we were out exploring the area most days."

  • A country retreat in the Loire Valley

    "The loft was a perfect retreat after the bustle of Paris. So quiet and loved driving along the country lanes to get to the chateaux. A long soak in the bath with a glass of wine after walking all day did the trick. Great hosts you made sure we had everything we needed and more even grapes picked right off the pergola. You must have dinner at Le Flueray restaurant as impeccable."

  • Great Homebase to Explore the Loire

    "Our family of four stayed for a week at La Noue in late November and found it to be a great base from which to explore the Loire. Christine was a very responsive and helpful host and her brother Jean was onsite to help with any questions we had. The accommodations themselves were extremely roomy and a truly authentic chateau. Having stayed in the "two room" setup with family at a hotel, being able to share this large and comfortable space was a treat and definitely the only way to travel with family through the country. There were a number of chateaus, charming towns and amazing restaurants within easy driving distance. Getting a quick pastry and espresso in the local village before a day of sight seeing was a great start to our days. While it was extremely cold during our stay (we visited the last week of November and consciously made this trade-off to avoid crowds of tourists), the grounds would have been an awesome setting for a picnic or simply running around during warmer weather. Having large bedrooms and bathrooms for a family to get ready in the morning or simply relax before dinner made enjoying the entire day during our trip so much easier. This is a unique setting for exploring a beautiful area of the French country and getting a true feel for the local lifestyle. A tip though - bring a GPS, if not to find the chateau, to navigate some of the smaller local roads at night, especially if there are any construction detours. We would definitely recommend an extended stay at La Noue to our friends."
