We have visited this property on two occasions , both times during the Easter Vacation. The cottage was exactly as listed with 3 spacious bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen, an ample dining area and comfortable lounge area with a beutiful log burning stove. The cottage was clean and homely with all mod cons necessary for a stay of any length . The courtyard at the bac of the property provides ample parking and a secure and secluded sitting area for when the sun shines and it becomes a sun trap. The owers give excellent customer service. They provided clear directions from Calais which helped us to avoid over expensive toll roads. The cottage has a wonderful homely feel created by the little personal touches (the alarm clock in the main bedroom is fascinating) ad they have provided lots of information to help with planning days out etc. The local bakery has wonderful croissants and rolls all baked fresh each day and is open from about 7am. The bar / restaurant right next door is well worth a visit or two - for a local beer in friendly surroundings and the plat du jour is an absolute must! Four courses of local produce and lots of local wine for an extremely fair price. The immediate area is great for walking with interesting woods to explore and little villages to discover. Towns within a 5 mile radius provide ample dining opportunities ranging from pizza to fine ining, Parking is available and directions are easy to follow. We visited lots of Chateau's all within 90 minutes drive of the cottage. Blois was a big favorite but Chenonceau, Ambois and Cheverny are well worth a visit. A great day out is a trip to Beauval Zoo which is well sign posted and less than 45 mins drive away. It is a wonderful place with animals from all over the world, all looking happy and well cared for, We would , and have, recommended this cottage to friends and we look forward visiting it ourselves in future.

We really enjoyed our trip to the Loire Valley, the area is really in the countryside and lovely and peaceful. The cottage was clean, well equipped and roomy. We had some good trips out to Blois (the Chateau is really nice ) and the town had some good shops, Clos Luce Parc ( which is where Leonardo da Vinci lived ), this was very popular with school trips etc. and is well worth a visit, as was Orleans (for shops etc.) We had a good day out also at the Zoo Parc de Beauval , not cheap but well worth it. We used the bikes to cycle to Billy (down the road) and also played table tennis in the garage. Thanks to Gillian and Stuart for their instructions to get o the property from Calais, we didn't get lost once. :) We went to a local restaurant in lassay sur Croisne which Gillian recommended and had a lovely meal. We had a couple really nice walks down by the canal which is signposted as Pont de Sauldre. Thank you again for the use of your lovely house in such a lovely peaceful area.
