Fabulous - A must!

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautifully thought out property, everything you could possibly think of.The pictures don't do it enough justice. We were greeted by the owners who were so much fun. We had complimentary, bread, butter, milk and two pots of homemade preserves and a bottle of local wine. Towels and bedding were immaculate and everything was spotless.

The atmosphere of the village was so relaxing. Centred around the church, there was the local bread shop that baked daily; a small mini-market which sold all the basic foods as well as the wonderful locally produced wine; a tobacconist/newsagent; a cafe-bar which again sold local wines as well as excellent beers and last but no least, a wonderful restaurant, La Petite Auberge, which is a must.

With the quality of the Gete and the quaint village you would enjoy every minute.

One thing I must say, is that you would need a car.

Perhaps our best Accommodation in France ever!!

  • 5 of 5

It will be difficult to convey how wonderful our stay at La Maison Marissou was in a short space! We come to France often, usually renting gites all around the country. This was perhaps the best accommodation we ever visited. The house is equipped with everything you can possibly need. It is spacious (there were 5 of us) and located in a wonderfully quiet village full of friendly people, yet near the larger city of Chinon. Laurent, Martine and Francoise were truly friendly, professional and accommodating in every regard. The outdoors portion of the property was well kept and filled with beautiful flowers -- truly a tranquil oasis. Previously we had visited the Loire Valley east of Tour on two occassions -- we found this area more peaceful, beautifuln and less touristy. I would absolutely recommend this gite to anyone planning a visit to the Loire. We certainly plan to return. Thank you again, Laurent, Martine and Francoise.
