Recent Centre-Loire Valley reviews

  • Wonderful!

    "We came here with a family of 8 (four kids ages 7-12 and the grandparents) for a week in the countryside. This place was perfect for us. Plenty of comfortable room and the beds were very cozy. Patrick was very helpful and is like having a personal travel agent for the area. The binder of information at the home along with pre arrival e-mail tips was perfect in planning our trip. One of our favorite things was the bicycles available for us to take out and ride through the beautiful French farmlands. We went out every night with the kids to explore and ride. The bikes were such a nice touch. This was a great place to visit the Lorie Valley and all its wonders. We only scratched the surface but are already planning on coming back next year. Thanks to Patrick, Bernadette and Philippe!"

  • Great hospitality in the Loire Valley

    "We felt so welcome on our recent stay with Brigitte and Gilbert. The house is lovely and the gardens a site all on their own. We came here as our first destination in France, and pulling up to such a lovely setting, with local wine and products available in the kitchen was very welcoming. The location is very central to visiting all the neighboring chateaux, but you do need your own car to get around. Although their was one very tasty restaurant about a 10 minute walk away through the woods. We had our 9 year old son with us and it was a great place for him as well. We played petanque in the afternoons, roamed around the gardens and read Tin Tin books. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in a time in the Loire Valley."

  • A very special holiday apartment

    "You are always a little nervous when you book a holiday home over the internet but you really have nothing to worry about with this lovely apartment. The booking process was easy with paypal for security and I also telephoned Veronique who spoke really good English and was able to provide lots of information. Etienne welcomed us to the apartment and was really helpful, providing us with information about where to visit eat etc and he even took us to his local garage and translated for us when we had car trouble. The apartment also has so many books about the local area and the Chateaux which were very useful. The apartment is truly lovely - we travelled with my daughter , son, and his girlfriend all in their late teens, early twenties and we were all delighted. The apartment is right beside the castle with lovely views from all of the bedroom windows of the castle and the loire. I spent quite a long time looking out of the windows admiring the view during the week. The rooms are all really spacious and the furnishings fit so well with this lovely old house. The bedding was also lovely and crisp. There are also 2 bathrooms and a separate loo which make it much easier for a large family. There is also a lovely little garden to enjoy the sunshine. My children also really enjoyed having wifi. The location of the apartment is also really good being just a few minutes walk from the lovely centre with all its cafe's restaurants and shops so after a day sight seeing it was easy to stroll to the centre for something to eat without having to worry about driving. There were restaurants also to suit all budgets. During the week we visited the Chateau in Amboise, Clos Luce ( home of Leonardo da Vinci), Chambord and Chenonceau and the lovely Beauval Zoo. There are so many places within easy reach you will have trouble choosing and the roads weren't busy even in the school summer holidays. We all feel really lucky to have found such a lovely place and have no hesitation in recommending it to you. Thank you Etienne and Veronique for sharing your lovely home with us."

  • 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!"
