A beautiful house, superb setting, charming hosts

  • 5 of 5

Le Clos de Venise is an exceptional property. The house is beautiful, extremely comfortable and equipped with everything you might need for your stay. We enjoyed every minute of our week there. The setting in the vineyard is superb. Note that the resident sheep is very friendly and likes to have a pat when you pass by on your way to buy the breakfast croissants at the little village epicerie. Claude and Francine are wonderful hosts – the nicest couple, friendly, informative about the region and its history, interesting to have a chat with and extremely generous with their wonderful wine, fresh produce from their vegetable garden and home-made jam, all greatly appreciated and devoured. Thank you to you both. We will look back on our stay at Le Clos de Venise with very warm memories and we hope to return in the not too distant future.

Unqualified comfort and class!

This is absolutely 5*......a glass of wine in the garden on a balmy afternoon.....close to chateaux, markets, yet far from the maddening crowds.

A perfect cottage in an ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

Our party comprised myself and my wife together with myin-laws and my wife's cousin who had flown in from Canada, we stayed at Le Close de Venise for one week at the end of June 2017.

We were all very impressed with the cottage and couldn't have asked for more. We all really loved it!

The cottage is an old property with plenty of charm that has been tastefully renovated to a very high standard and was perfect for our party of five.

Noizay is an ideal location for exploring the Loire Valley. We visited Amboise, Blois, Chaumont, Chambord Azay-le-Rideau, Chenonceau and Cheverney, all within easy reach.

Francine and Claude were were perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome.They were kind enough to invite us all to their house; we had a very enjoyable evening which included a tour of the wine cellar. Claude is a real wine buff and obviously passionate about the subject - thank you for a lovely evening and thank you very much for the wine and jam.

All in all we had a wonderful holiday made even more memorable for staying at Le Close de Venise.

Thank you Francine & Claude,

Paul, Helen, Margaret, Phil and Hilary.

In French - Paradis dans Noizay!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in Noizay for 7 days during May. My wife and I had been to the Loire Valley on 2 other occasions but had never stayed in a Villa. We couldn’t have been more pleased with our choice! Simply amazing!

Our friends that joined us were equally impressed with the area; the wines; the town of Amboise; the castle[s]; the food; and of course the crepes!

The accommodations were probably better than the website if that is possible and with Francine and Claude adding their personal touch to our stay we felt like we were visiting friends.

Claude takes great pride in his Vouvray vines located above the villa – be sure to walk up the stairs and around the parameter of the vineyard. Just a short walk but a must do!

There is a small Co-Op 3kms away which will have everything you will need from wine to water and meats to fish. However, do not exclude the short walk through the vineyard and out the gate each morning to a small epicerie for croissants and baguettes.

Merci beaucoup Francine et Claude – notre sejour a votre villa etait magnifique!

10 stars - 'the best' - for the 2nd time ...

  • 5 of 5

We had rented this house back in 2014 - and gave it a rating of: '10 stars- the best' then. Well, Claude & Francine - again - your house and your warm hospitality - are '10 stars the best' again. This year we rented for 5 weeks in September and into October. Perfect ! We visited some smaller chateaux this time - and we went to a cooking class. The cooking class was also excellent !! About an hours drive. But well worth it.

here is the web site: www.lespeupliers-loire.com

We also went on a balloon ride - again well worth it.

If you are looking for a top notch place - with wonderful and warm hosts - look no further; you have found it.

Thank you so much Claude & Francine - for your warm and friendly welcome to us for the 2nd time.

We will be back.... :)

The most amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at the gates we could not believe the stunning,peaceful location and in fact my mum was tearful! It was so beautiful to see the house on the hill with the vineyard below and we were greeted so warmly by the owners, Claude and Francine. We were shown around the property and given information about the local area and felt reassured that we could ask for assistance should we have needed it. The house was stunning, complimenting its history but with all modern, high quality fittings that allowed seven of us to stay more than comfortably.We enjoyed taking it in turns to walk through the vineyard every morning for croissants at the bakery which was open everyday ( including weekends) apart from Monday and the village was minutes away from the beautiful town of Amboise. We enjoyed the Segway, the kayaking, the mushroom caves, the castles lit up at night, Blois, Tours and mostly eating al fresco in the beautiful garden. We were lucky to have gorgeous weather but it would still have been special in the rain.The house was spotlessly clean and we really appreciated the homely touch as Francine gave us jam made from her fruit trees and Claude a bottle of wine from the vineyard. A very special place that we will always remember. I read the reviews and thought it must be lovely but it went beyond my expectations. Plenty to do in the area for all ages and not as rural as is suggested with bustling towns near by.
