The house is in an excellent location as it is a short walk to the town centre, a short drive to hypermarket and not far away from very many beautiful chateaux. Azay le Rideau itself is charming and during the time we were there ( March to end of May) not too busy but with all you would expect to find by way of cafes, restaurants and bars. We would especially recommend the restaurant "Les Grottes" which is a very short walk from the house.The chateau at Azay is delightful and well worth a visit.
The house itself is in character with the surroundings and has been well restored. When we arrived in mid March it was rather cold at first but once we had warmed it up we found it very comfortable. It can sleep 6 so, although it was only the two of us most of the time as we were there for 10 weeks, it was lovely to be able host friends and family who visited during that time. There was also enough parking off road for up to 3 cars.
The house is well equipped with cooker, microwave, washing machine & tumble dryer. There was also the facility to dine outdoors which we used regularly during the good weather. We did find the cooking utensils a little limited for a long stay but it was certainly adequate for a normal holiday stay and it did have a good selection of BBQ stuff for the summer. It was also useful being able to have British TV as well as French and there is also the facility to record programmes. WiFi was excellent (essential for an extended stay.)
Local people were friendly and welcoming and Francisco, who looks after things for the owner, was a delightful and helpful character for whom nothing was too much trouble. We particularly appreciated the fresh eggs from his hens on his huge allotment opposite the house.
The swimming pool was not open during our time there but I'm sure it would be an attraction during the summer months.
We would fully recommend La Maisonette de Rose and Azay le Rideau.
i took my son and daughter and 2 children to stay and we thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful town allthough compact, . THE HOUSE HAD EVERYTHING WE NEEDED, as it was very hot, the pool was great
Property clean, well equipped & very comfortable.
Village had good restaurants, food & ice cream shops.
Pool a particular hit with the granddaughters.
