"If you are into fast paced vacations with swinging night life and a crazy club scene.......keep looking. BUT if you want a slice of the real rural France, a relaxing and unhurried pace to your days then you have found the right place. My wife and I just returned from two unforgettable weeks in this little gem in Troo. Our vacation style is low key and self-paced. This place fit beautifully. The house itself has everything you could ask for as far as equipment, and best of all it is close to the major roads so you can get anywhere in the are in no more than an hour, and we even took a side trip to Normandy, which is a quick trip up the A28. Geraldine, your host, will go to any length to answer questions and offer helpful insights to the local areas, and best of all great wine suggestions about local producers!!! There are great dining options in Troo and within a few kilometers, but we also took advantage of the neat little kitchen to cook some of the local products of this mainly agricultural area. Nearby Montoire-sur-Loir has two large markets for your staples. We limited ourselves to two chateaux/museums per day to avoid burnout, with lazy lunches near our destinations and we never tired of the drive along the rural roads as they offer endless opportunities for photographers. But be warned: If you stop to take a few shots of each and every picturesque village or landscape you encounter you will never arrive at your intended destination. But that is part of the magic of this area. I would heartily reccommend this property to anyone looking for a self-paced out of the tourist rush vacation, and we will cherish every memory of the little house on the banks of the Loir. Don't wait....BOOK IT!!!!"

"We cannot emphasise how much we loved our stay here. It was like waking up to a dream every morning when you looked outside your window! Fiona was exceptionally helpful. We arrived later than expected, tired and hungry, and there was wine, baguette, terrine, and butter waiting for us! We were so thankful for that! As we arrived late once it was dark, Fiona showed us around the house that night, and the town the following day. We were shown the best baker, butcher and patisserie which was so helpful as we were there for Christmas and enjoyed a feast! Fiona also helped us call local suppliers to get produce ordered for Christmas eve! It helped us so much as none of us spoke French. 7 Adults and 2 Children stayed in this property and we had more room than we needed. It was such a special time which will stay with us forever. We hope to come back, and we would recommend this place to anyone. Chinon was also a lovely town, and everyone was really helpful and friendly despite of our very poor French!"

"We arrived at Le Clos de Venise yesterday and awoke to local church bells. We have decided we are not ever leaving. This place is so amazing we won't be able to go home. Just send for the grandchildren and our lives will be complete! Claude and Francine are the perfect hosts. In all our many travels it is undoubtedly the best vacation destination of all! You must experience to believe! Oh yeah! Just day one! Can't wait to see how the remaining nine will turn out!
