We have just spent a fantastic fortnight at La Vernelle from 13th July to 27th July 2019. On arrival we were thrilled by the beautiful setting and high quality fixtures and fittings of this spacious cottage, giving it a truly luxurious feel.
We enjoyed morning coffee on the bistro table over looking the woodlands with horses grazing below, while listening to the birds delightful morning songs.
In the evenings we had barbeques and family meals on the large private terrace.
If you enjoy peace and tranquility after a busy day then this is the place to come.
The cottage is perfectly situated within the Loire Valley around half an hour drive to some of the most beautiful Chateaux in the region.
During our time we experienced a heatwave where temperatures peaked to 43° Pascale, the owner, was quick to offer us advice and extra fans to keep us cool.
Some local shops are within a 20 minute walk and supermarkets are a short drive away.
The only thing we didn't like was leaving to come home. Would love to return in the future.
Lovely French Experience
This is a delightful 2 bedroom house in the Loire valley. The kitchen has all the facilities you could wish for. The beds are comfortable and it was great to have one bathroom for each bedroom. The view from the terrace was lovely and our hostess very accommodating. The property is the perfect base for exploring the Loire valley. It is very close to Amboise, one of those delightful small towns on the Loire river, and also within easy reach of many Chateaux including Chenonceau which is superb and an absolute must-see.
La Vernalle - a beautiful villa set in a perfect location.
We were delighted with the space and the high standard of decoration and facilities. The bedrooms were extremely comfortable and the bathrooms fitted out to a high specification. It was a joy to wake up to peace and quiet and to look out onto open fields. The patio area was perfect for evening meals and breakfasts in the sunshine.
Thank you Pascale for being a lovely host and for the very tasty, freshly picked figs and grapes!
Lovely house. Good location.
We enjoyed our stay at this lovely old house.
Pascale has a flair for design which is reflected in the decor and furniture.
We were well looked after and would certainly stay at La Vernelle again.
An unforgettable stay
We just returned from spending ten unforgettable days at la Vernelle. The location is idyllic, on the beautiful grounds of the owners' chateau. We spent many hours on the terrace overlooking the meadow where two horses and Gaston the donkey grazed. It is very peaceful there, and it was a joy to awaken to a chorus of birdsong. Amboise with its chateau, markets, shops and restaurants is a lovely town >> we took advantage of Pascale's excellent recommendations on where to buy chocolate, croissants, pastries, and meals. We are SO glad we chose Amboise over the bustle of Blois or Tours: it is a very walkable city and is situated within easy driving distance of various chateaux. As garden-lovers, we especially enjoyed the gardens at Villandry and the International Garden Festival at Chaumont-sur-Loire.
La Vernelle was built in the 17th century but the interior was completely redone in 2013. In the renovation Pascale did a marvelous job of combining tradition and modernity, beauty with utility and comfort. We loved taking coffee on the terrace in the morning, relaxing there upon returning from excursions, hanging out there on the day it rained, and preparing meals in the well-equipped kitchen with fresh food from the market. We explored the "troglo" behind the house and walked the forest paths with our canine companion Joufflue.
Pascal and Pascale gave us a very warm welcome along with a bottle of sparkling Vouvray wine, and made sure we knew they were there to help if we needed it. They truly made us feel at home. Their property is one of the most beautiful spots we have had the pleasure to visit, and we are very grateful that they so graciously shared it with us.
