summer quiet escape

  • 5 of 5

Ideal situation to stop and visit Loire Chateaus. In the middle of nature, close a charming village, where café and terraces offers typically french break. A place to rest, as well as a headquarter to dawdle between rivers, vineyards, and royal castles. Warm welcome, good quality of beds. We will come back.

Wonderful break

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, we received a very warm welcome from Marie. She is full of energy and helpful suggestions. Very much the artist, her works decorate the living room walls.

The house is very well appointed, the bedrooms very comfortable and bathrooms equipped with modern conveniences. The property abuts open fields and the garden provides a view of the Loire embankment just 200 yards away. Two friendly horses will probably approach you looking for a hand-out of stale bread. Exceedingly quiet, absolutely no traffic, the only noises being bird song and the occasional honking pheasant.

We walked to the river Cher, about 3 km from where one can glimpse the chateau Villandry on the opposite bank. If one wants to escape, and find the 'real' France one can do a lot worse than rent this property from Marie.

Owner's Response: Hi, dear guests, It was a pleasure to receive you at "Une Maison, Un Jardin". Your warned and cultivated eye made me look otherwise at the exhibited works. Thank you for your impression about your visit to the newly opened Olivier Debré Museum in TOURS. We liked your envy to discover the city of various points of view. Come back when the roses are blooming!

Best vacation rental experience we've ever had

  • 5 of 5

Marie greeted us with a welcome drink in the beautiful garden and even offered to let our three young sons borrow her grandchildren's bikes to explore. The cottage itself is beautifully decorated and can be described as a curated collection of a creative soul with an appreciation for things of beauty-everywhere you turn are little touches that give it so much personality. It has been recently renovated and everything was perfect. The kitchen is very well appointed for cooking, the beds very comfortable, nice linens provided and good hot water/water pressure throughout the home. The garden was just beginning to bloom, I can only imagine how gorgeous it must be a little later in the year-we actually decided to forego many of our planned excursions in the area to simply stay at the cottage and enjoy the peace of the area.

As amazing as the cottage itself is our hostess Marie truly made this trip for us-she was so welcoming and hospitable, she truly wanted us to have an amazing trip. We enjoyed her company immensely and even purchased one of her beautiful paintings. We left feeling like we made a life-long friend and hope to return to Une Maison, Un Jardin again in the future.

Owner's Response: Melissa and her family is a simply perfect guest to receive. It has been only happiness to have her and the whole family playing, relaxing in the garden and around. She was interested by a lot of things. The children are full of life and very polite. They draw well! They left the house in good order. The bikes were back at the right place every evening. Come back, dear friends, in summer, or fall. Anytime, you will be welcome! Watercolour and papers are waiting for your talent! The garden, the house, and I wait for your next visit.

Relaxing get-away at "the end of the world"

  • 5 of 5

Upon first arriving we thought "wow this is out there". As it turned out being out there was perfect for what we wanted...to relax and take in some of the Loire Valley countryside and attractions. Marie is a gracious hostess and goes out of her way to make you comfortable. She has plenty of information and knowledge about the area and is more than willing to share it. Upon arrival she greeted us (she lives on the property) and gave us a detailed tour of the house. After unpacking she was back with wine and cheese and discussions about where we would go. whatever we did during the day it was always a pleasure to return to "Marie's Garden".

Owner's Response: Hi, dear September guests, It was such a pleasure to receive your friendly group! Full of laugh and of envy to enjoy your trip in Loire valley. To send you to neighbour 's restaurants, to help you to discover the Chateau you wanted to visit among the numerous around. To find the right place for your tour in TOUR old city with CAFÉ DU VIEUX MÛRIER, and Claire's hello, and pedestrian streets around... And good shopping addresses for girls. Come back soon, Mary's garden is waiting for all of you!

Un Maison avec enfants

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week here with our two sons (8 & 2). The house and garden are both large so there was lots of room to run around! Marie very kindly let us use the sprinkler to cool the kids off, and found a large toy tractor for them to play on.

Out and about, our favourite trip was Clos Luce - a house with large gardens and some of Leonardo da vinci's inventions built to play with. We spent the whole day there exploring and playing.

We rented bikes, but because the Loire cycle path only started probably ~5km from the house (it's a rural idyll), unless your kids are able to do a distance, we kept to mostly just doing Savonnieres. Which isn't that much of a problem as there are 2 bakeries, cafe, biscuit shop, ice cream, park and river there... so it's an excursion in it's own right!

The aquatic centre in Tours was a firm favourite with slides and kiddie pools.

For the adults? Tours is a lovely city, and look out for the nearby Foire du vins for tastings!

Thanks again Marie.

Owner's Response: Hi, dear family, Thanks for this kind review. It was a great pleasure to receive you and the boys! It was great to listen to their laugh, around the outside table on breakfast, and to see them rinse under the sprinkler after these so sunny days. Yes, Leonardo da Vinci is a great place to go and discover, and sure, the just simple way and go to Savonnières by bike is a good moment in itself, new born veals of Mr Gentils to discover, picking of blackberries along hedges, observing birds... A lot! For next coming, we are sure that the boys will also appreciate the visits of the farms around, milking goats, and the farm where they make some "foie gras de canards". We are ready to receive them, and you soon... Best!
