Beautiful and perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience and a perfect location. Madame Touze could not have been more welcoming and helpful! The house is magnificent and truly fully equipped for a holiday for all ages. Our whole family from grandchildren to grandparents enjoyed it immensely.

Wonderful house perfectly situated among the beautiful towns and chateaux of the Loire Valley.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I invited our son, daughter-in-law and two little granddaughters to join us at La Grande Loge for a week. We thought it would be good, but had no idea how perfect it would be. A gorgeous swimming pool, huge property to run around, even a trampoline, makes it ideal for children. The peace and beauty of the place make it ideal for adults. Walk to town or to the local vintner to pick up your champagne or wine, eat at home (lovely, well-equipped kitchen and outdoor barbecue) or in any of the local restaurants and your only problem will be to ask yourself why you only rented for one week, not two.

Beautiful place

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here as one of a group of 7 cyclists. The house is beautifully appointed and very elegant, and thankfully cool in the heat. The gardens are huge and lovely, and the large pool is brilliant (although there is a bit of distant road noise it really doesn't spoil it at all). The house location is great since it allowed for numerous cycle rides to interesting chateaux - Chinon, Chenoceau, Villandry etc - yet is within walking distance of Azay with its range of restaurants. Having said that, the large kitchen/dining room was so good for social cooking and eating that we only went out twice. It is also within walking distance of a vineyard that makes excellent sparkling wines. The only small downside is that although 2 of the bedrooms have ensuite showers and the other 2 share a good bathroom, none of those have a toilet. Instead, there are 2 separate toilets, one off the kitchen and another by the side door which is a bit of a juggle with 7 or 8 people in the house. Also, there was a hint of damp in our bedroom although it didn't matter because we had such good weather.

Owner's Response: La description figurant sur le site étant tout à fait complète, je suis surprise que l'on s'étonne ici du nombre de toilettes alors que ce sujet n'a pas été abordé ni au moment de la réservation ni pendant le séjour.. Et qu'aucun locataire ne s'en est jamais plaint. À la lecture de ce commentaire il est nécessaire d'expliquer que l'on ne fait pas toujours ce que l'on veut dans un manoir de cette époque !! Et que les toilettes sont séparées pour ne pas perturber les utilisateurs des salles de bains... Cela dit ces personnes étaient tout à fait agréables.

A Gem in the Heart of the Loire

  • 5 of 5

La Grande Loge is a magnificent place to stay during a visit to the Loire Valley. As a group of four Canadian couples, we recently returned from biking in the region and spent an idyllic seven days enjoying this sumptuous and historic manor as a starting and ending point for each day's adventures. It is perfectly situated in central Loire near the small, charming village of Azay-le-Rideau and is easily accessible from Paris by train or car. Everything you need for a memorable vacation is close at hand - groceries, winery (Chateau d'Aulee has good whites), bike rental, a chateau, cafes, even a farmer's market which boasts amazingly fresh produce at this time of year. Yet its location at the edge of town, surrounded by farmers' fields, is very peaceful and feels like a country setting. You might even have a visit from neighbouring cows like we did!

The Loge itself is an exceptional home, and as other guests have mentioned, the pictures do not quite capture the size, grandeur and special feeling it evokes. The kitchen has all the "bells and whistles" and is well-stocked with equipment and staples, the bedrooms are roomy, the furniture/beds are very comfortable - we all slept well after days of touring and biking. There are 3 shower rooms, modernized and clean, and two separate rooms containing the toilets. The weather was hot and sunny during our stay so we really appreciated the easy-to-operate pool and the HUGE yard, filled with exquisite roses, in which it is situated. We spent every evening meal outdoors - a highlight!! For children, it is an ideal place with trees and lawn that extend forever, perfect to explore and play games of tag and soccer. There are also tons of pool toys and bath towels. Despite the draw of the many compelling sites in the local area as well as the neighbouring villages and towns, we so enjoyed the lawn, garden and pool that one day was devoted to relaxation of all this outdoor space had to offer.

If you are considering a group or family trip to the Loire, La Grande Loge is definitely the place to stay - we highly recommend it!

Beautiful house and gardens

  • 5 of 5

Many pictures of rentals do not measure up to what one sees when they arrive, not in this situation. House is an incredible find in the Loire Valley. Very large kitchen and living room. Centrally located and close to grocery stores, we spent a week at Christine's home and we would go back again without a question. Gardens and pool are fantastic.

Fantastic place for a family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

This is a really fantastic location for a family holiday. The accommodation and facilities are even better that the description, which cannot adequately describe the charm and character of this incredible old building and it's surroundings. Yet the fittings and equipment, particularly in the kitchen, are modern, comprehensive and cover all requirements - I have never seen so many different ways to make a cup of coffee!!!

Christine is a charming and welcoming hostess with a real determination to do all that she can to make your visit as enjoyable as possible, yet is never intrusive.

The swimming pool has everything that you could possible need, particularly for children.

The only possible way to improve this accommodation would be to add a toilet to the en-suite bathroom, but that is a minor niggle compared to the overall facilities.

Owner's Response: It's always very pleasant to read so kind words.... And really I make all it's possible to offer to my visitors a good stay in this so nice country. You understand certainly that I like the Loire Valley ... And my house too ! And as I live in a house in the inner courtyard, I do all that is possible to be so unobtrusive as possible, but present if necessary. For the question about the toilet in the en-suite bathroom, I thought to do that but it was not possible.... We can't make what we want in a so old house....
