  • 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."

  • 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"

  • Absolute heaven in the Loire Valley

    "I cannot find the words to express the magic of our holiday at Chateau des Grotteaux. We assembled a group of 33 family and friends here and our only disappointment was having to leave. Pierre Antoine, the owner, was very responsive leading up to our arrival and was helpful in recommending caterer and bike rentals, among other things. Our group spent the majority of our time eating and lounging by the large and beautiful pool as the weather was perfect all week, ranging from low 60s in the mornings to around 80 late in the day. We organized bikes to be delivered to the chateau and biked from there to Blois, Cheverny, and Chambord, with wine tasting stops in the surrounding countryside, all on the extensive bike trail system that covers the area. Tennis tournaments were arranged for the tennis court, which is accessed by a short walk through the enchanting forest. We also arranged for two formal dinners to be served in the large dining room which easily accommodated our large numbers. The caterer provided a simple breakfast each morning, which we supplemented with fruit and cereal. Fresh vegetables were ordered from the neighboring farm. We also used the pool kitchen for several big, collaboratively cooked meals. The kitchen is well stocked, and the huge grill (supplied with charcoal) is fantastic! The kitchens could use a few better knives and some roasting pans, though they were never lacking in plates, cutlery, glasses and serving dishes. The master bedrooms are sumptuously decorated and everything was well cleaned and cared for. The Norma suite of rooms made a perfect kid den and Pierre Antoine brought in several extra beds to accommodate the large number of kids we had between us. There are three sound systems supplied, in the living room, basement cafe and pool area, as well as a large AV system in the living room for showing DVDs or presentations. Thank you to Pierre Antoine for caring for our every need and providing such a beautiful place for us. Truly a chateau of fairy tales!"

  • A restful and interesting place to experience French culture and country life

    "My family and friends all enjoyed our stay at the Bournand chateau. The place is charming and peaceful. And nearby, there are so many beautiful castles, caves, gardens to explore, good fresh produce & food to savor and interesting culture & history to learn, I cannot find a better place to experience an ideal French country life. Above all, the owner Marie had been a most gracious hostess. Alway with a cheerful smile, she provided helps when we asked and gave suggestions when we were unfamiliar with the local custom/conditions. She had made our stay most comfortable."
