Recent Centre-Loire Valley reviews

  • Luxury, elegant and creative, wonderfully relaxing.

    "I cannot recommend 'The Paquerie' enough. I left having felt exceptionally well fed and cultured. Immediately I was stuck with the stunning romance of this classic French House, garden and delightful cave. A real French treat. Brian and Thérèse have decorated the accommodation with great love and consideration. Staying in the cave was magical! Everything that you may need is supplied in the highest standard. From Etro Shampoo to beautifully soft and comfortable sheets, antique furniture and very powerful shower. The fresh fruit breakfast, croissants and homemade jams are a perfect start for culture vultures to explore the very near by Chateax and local markets. Brian and Thérèse are extremely knowledgable in local history and are very helpful as guides. They are also discreet and unobtrusive when you are tired from a long day's indulging. Luxury, elegant and creative, wonderfully relaxing. Thank you very much for having us!"

  • Fantastic place for a family holiday.

    "This is a really fantastic location for a family holiday. The accommodation and facilities are even better that the description, which cannot adequately describe the charm and character of this incredible old building and it's surroundings. Yet the fittings and equipment, particularly in the kitchen, are modern, comprehensive and cover all requirements - I have never seen so many different ways to make a cup of coffee!!! Christine is a charming and welcoming hostess with a real determination to do all that she can to make your visit as enjoyable as possible, yet is never intrusive. The swimming pool has everything that you could possible need, particularly for children. The only possible way to improve this accommodation would be to add a toilet to the en-suite bathroom, but that is a minor niggle compared to the overall facilities."

  • Superb!

    "Relaxing, beautiful, comfortable! If you want an extremely pleasant experience, you have found the place to stay. After a fun day exploring Amboise and its environs, my grown family of five would return to this lovely retreat and have a great night's sleep. Thank you, Karine and Thierry, for providing such a lovely apartment for our use. It is a little slice of heaven!"

  • Fantastic place in a fantastic location.

    "We just spent a fabulous week at Clos de la Bodice. It easily accommodated 16 of us (10 adults, 6 children aged 8 - 15) without it feeling cramped. We were all able to eat together - either round the covered table outside or the round table inside. The facilities are excellent. The pool was heated and both a magnet for the kids and great for playing games. The jacuzzi was bigger than most I've seen (even in the spa hotels) and ideal to either soak listening to music or watch films. The sporting facilities were also excellent - table tennis was particularly popular (and ideal for a big game of round the table - as we'd brought extra bats). There were also plenty of loungers for sunbathing. In fact, it was so pleasant to stay at the house that it was tempting not to go out and explore the sites of the Loire valley. However, there are numerous interesting places to see just a short distance away. Several of these could have been reached by bike and there were many great local bike trails and a large number of bikes to choose from (complete with helmets). Philippe was extremely welcoming and easygoing. He allowed us to bring a caravan with 4 extra people for no charge. Also, when we phoned to ask if we could exceed the max number of people in the house, he told us he was expanding the upstairs and increasing the number of beds. And true to his word, he had done this (and didn't want any extra money). He also just shrugged when we told him we'd broken a couple of glasses. Excellent place and excellent owner. Would be keen to stay there again."
