Recent Centre-Loire Valley reviews

  • Outstanding location!

    "We stayed in this pretty little cottage to tour several Chateaus/Castles. The location is outstanding. The home where Di Vinci lived the last years of his life (it looks like a castle) is located a short walking distance right at the end of the street from the cottage and is a must see. Several interesting and gorgeous Castles are within driving distance. The town of Ambosie is lovely and has a wonderful open market. It also has everything you need (restaurants, post office, shops etc) and is walkable, quaint, interesting and friendly. Within a short drive there is a large super market and gas station. There are local small markets and restaurants that are listed in a booklet the owner has kindly provided. The owner was easy to work with and responded quickly to our inquiries via email. The cottage is nicely decorated and clean! It is comprised of one room with a separate bathroom. Within the one room is a well stocked kitchen, a comfortable bed for two and a couch/sofa that converts to a bed. There are several stairs that lead up to the cottage as it sits up on a small hill and from the back patio has an expansive beautiful and peaceful view of a valley full of birds and trees. We especially enjoyed the rocking stairs on this patio that allowed us to enjoy the surrounding beauty and listen to the wonderful chorus of birds in the morning and wine in the evening. In our future we look forward to another stay in this pretty little cottage!"

  • Beautiful and Well Situated Accommodation

    "We couldn't have been more pleased with our accommodations at this lovely house in May. Although we did not meet the owners in person, Rosemary was just an e-mail or phone call away and she was extremely helpful in recommending sites to see and places to eat and visit. The garden is lovely in May, the house was spacious and comfortable, and the location is perfect for visiting the chateaux of the Loire Valley. The owners left a bottle of wine in the fridge, cozy terry cloth robes in the bathroom, and a computer and cell phone for us to use while we were at the house. We felt that we were personal guests of the owners. The town (and castle) of Blois are just a few minutes away. We would definitely recommend this house!"

  • Ten stars - the best.

    "We have rented apartments in Paris and other places; but Le Clos De Venise was the best we have ever experienced. I can not begin to say enough good things about Le Clos De Venise - and its charming, friendly and caring owners - Claude and Francine. There were three of us (adults) and we stayed for just a month in the summer of 2014. Our regret is that we did not stay for two months - or three. Almost every day we visited chateau’s - ate déjeuner with wine out on the lawn in front of the house - then drove into Amboise for dinner. Life does not get better than this. Thank you so much, Claude & Francine - for our best vacation in years. Jim & Margaret & Cordelia"

  • 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"
