Everywhere was spotless. Sylvie and Patrick were ideal hosts -available for advice on the best restaurants and provided us with numbers for local taxi firms. Local bakery is a 10 minute walk - perfect for a wander out to get croissants for breakfast. Ideal accommodation for 2 couples. Wouln’t hesitate to go back.
Wonderful visit...wished it could have been longer.
What a treasure this property is!
The hosts, Patrick and Sylvie, could not have been kinder and more accommodating.
We borrowed bicycles to cycle to Chenonceau, enjoyed our late afternoons by the pool and the accommodation for two couples was perfect ... two spacious and beautifully decorated bedrooms, each with its own ensuite, a comfortable kitchen with all the amenities and a lovely patio area to enjoy meals together when the weather was nice.
The hard work and love that has been put into this property should not be missed.
The location in the country , about 20 minutes from Amboise, was a welcome change..
Although there are no restaurants within walking distance it really didn't matter...We thoroughly enjoyed our evenings on the patio sipping wine, and enjoying dinner together.
Such a pleasurable stay.
Fantastic accommodation with everything you could wish for and great quality too.
A beautiful cottage set in a sleepy village location where you are woken up by a cock crowing, birds twittering and the distant sound of church bells.
The gite is incredibly comfortable and cool in the hot French sunshine due to it being built from stone. Good quality fittings and everything you could wish for to make this a home from home stay. Very spacious too and a lovely outdoor area for dining al fresco which we did every evening.
Patrick and Sylvie were perfect welcoming hosts and extremely helpful offering their garage for us to store our bikes.
A beautiful pool area which is shared with your hosts and plenty of comfy sun loungers to bask in the sunshine if you wish, or take the shade in a seating area under a beautiful tree.
3 beautiful friendly dogs also share the extensive owners gardens but do not go around the pool area or your own part of the property. Beware though; Largeau a young alsation is irresistible and indefatigable when it comes to throwing his ball for him which he catches with ease and brings it back to you dropping it at your feet for you to go again. He can go all day. Incredible character.
We loved our stay here, going out with our bikes on the car and exploring the beautiful chateaux and vineyards of the local Loire valley. We shall definitely return to this very beautiful part of France and would love to stay again at Le Clos de la Rousselière.
Merci Patrick et Sylvie

Very positive. Only remark were the dogs. Our kids were afraid of them and we had to pass them for entering the swimming pool.
