  • Serene setting with an abundance of charm!

    "What a fantastic time at Lebelvedere. Lovely historic home filled with beautiful antiques and works of art. My husband and I stayed three nights and wished we could have extended the visit. The cottage we stayed in was very spacious. Enjoyed late afternoons just sitting in the garden reading and drinking excellent wine from the region. Lebelvedere is in a village we found to be very welcoming. Great places to walk along the river through parks and to a winery. Located just a short block to the town square with cafes, restaurants, and shops. Enjoyed eating at the square and walking back to the home, without having to drive. Dominque and Jean are wonderful hosts recommending chateaus, museums, and restaurants. Two of our favorite memories are the aerial tour of the chateaus by Jean and the Leonardo di Vinci museum. My husband was in the Air Force and he and Jean, a former pilot, could have talked for hours about planes. Dominque is very gracious and prepared a wonderful selection of croissants, breads, cheese, beverages and homemade yogurt for breakfast. Delightful way to start each day. Would recommend it to anyone interested in a special treat!"

  • Excellent location and facilities - a fabulous cottage

    "We stayed for 14 nights in August 2014. Being central in the 'magic' triangle between the Loire and the Cher, it was an ideal base for cycling around this beautiful (and mostly flat) area. The roads were quiet and there were many, well-signposted, cycle routes and tracks to follow. On our bikes, we reached: Chaumont, Blois, Amboise, Montrichard, Loches, St. Aignan and Cheverny. A combination of car and cycle worked well to visit Chambord (cycle from Blois), Tours (cycle from Lusigny) and Orleans (cycle from Meung). The cottage itself was brilliant. Roomy and full of interest, with a mixture of very old beams with modern, comfortable furniture and fittings. Having the living room and kitchen upstairs (light and warmed by the sun) with the bedroom and shower-room downstairs (darker and cooler) worked well (we didn't need to brave the extra 2 single beds in the mezzanine/loft). The double bed was large enough and comfortable with duvet and pillows. The garden, although small, was a pretty, tranquil space and the balcony was a suntrap where the two of us could eat and drink. Plenty of room for our car in the gated yard, plus space for the two bikes in the large garage. The fast Wifi was a plus, as were the washing machine and tumble drier. Pontlevoy was pretty, with its imposing Abbey / school, yet was mostly dead. The evidence is that it used to be more lively and thriving. Now a small supermarket, the Hotel d'Ecole (very smart), the Peche Mignon (informal pizza) and La Poste bar in daytime were all we saw open."

  • Incredible experience

    "I cannot thank Diane enough for making this house available to my friends and me for our recent vacation. It is warm, welcoming and perfect as a base to explore the French countryside or to just sit and relax. It is well stocked with dishes and cooking supplies, towels, linens and everything you could need to have a six course meal or just cook up some scrambled eggs for breakfast. There were plenty of bedrooms and the beds were comfortable. It was great that we each could have our own bathroom. There is a great book she has prepared with recommendations about activities, restaurants and just general info. We were fortunate that Diane was in residence in her portion of the property so were able to spend some time with her. Her restaurant recommendations were superb, particularly L'Auberge de l'Ecole about 20 minutes away. We has an incredible meal served by a friendly and helpful staff. Meusnes is not a hotbed of activity but the nearby town, Selles Sur Cher has a lot to offer including a great weekly market, cafes and restaurants. From our base we took daily excursions to le Chateau de Chenonceau, the Zoo Beauval (not to be missed), Blois, Tours, and several other areas. The drive through the French countryside was beautiful and not to be missed. The house was easy to get to from Paris. We rented a car in Paris and drove down using the GPS I had brought from home. No problems, not hard getting out of Paris and a fairly easy 2.5 - 3 hour drive. This is a great house for friends to share or for a family or an extended family vacation. It would work well with multi generations. I would love to be able to stay for a month, hosting various friends to visit and really becoming part of the French country life. Maybe when I retire..... Thank you, Diane"

  • Fabulous location,wonderful host, super clean

    "This is a perfect location for day trips in the Loire Valley. The apartment is modern, with more amenities than you will ever need. The bedroom has exposed beams on the wall, very lovely. Pascal was very helpful and recommended restaurants, cheese shops and bakeries all within walking distance. I would stay again!!!"
