“Lovely place to stay and very helpful hosts”
Reviewed 3 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Very enjoyable stay in the French countryside with the Gite containing everything that was required for four adults. A lovely comfortable place to stay .Gill was very helpful and obliging .I have no hesitation in recommending the Gite to other travellers

“All we wanted and more”
Reviewed 19 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Discovered this wee gem on trip advisor whilst searching for places to stay in France. It appeared to meet our needs perfectly.
When we arrived, the property was charming, dwelling in the rural French countryside.
Inside the Gite, was everything that we needed during our stay in France. The owners Gill and Tony were amazing, Gill was extremely friendly, and only to glad to help no mater whatever came to light.
She's a fountain of knowledge when it comes to some of the best places to eat, and we have followed her recommendations extensively( and reviewed them on TripAdvisor).Not to mention her knowledge of the local wines.
The gite is charming, with a large living area come kitchen on the ground floor, with 2 bedrooms on the upper floor, with fantastic views over the French countryside.
The large bathroom, has a great shower with it's own hot water supply so we never ran out of piping hot water.
If you are an animal lover, then this place will suit you to a"T" ! As well as Gill welcoming us on arrival, you're greeted by Ruby and Boots their charming two dogs.
A full explanation of the remainder of the menagerie is explained in the welcome pack, which is a good source of information.
All in all a most enjoyable holiday, an will definitely return.

“Lovely location and great cottage.”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I spent a week at this cottage with my Mum and dog Cher. The cottage is well equipped and very well maintained and clean. The rooms are spacious and nicely furnished. Gillian had provided a nice welcome pack that was very much appreciated and was very helpful when advice was needed. The cottage is ideal if you are taking a dog as the garden area is a good size. Table, chairs, sunloungers, barbecue are all provided. There are good resturants within the area and the local bakery and supermarket are only about a mile away. If you are taking a dog, the local vet is also in the village. We loved the location of the cottage, its peaceful and in a nice country location but at the same time not far from the village and is ideal for visiting Chateau's etc. I would like to go back to the Loire maybe next year and if I do I will stay at La cour.......why go anywhere else?

“An excellent cottage in a great location”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The cottage was attractive, spacious, clean and well equipped. We particularly appreciated the access to bikes and a BBQ, which were real plus points. The owners were helpful and on hand when needed, but also gave us our own space, including a private garden area. The surrounding area is peaceful and scenic, ideal for walking and cycling. The cottage is close to a nice village with bars, a boulangerie and a supermarket. Saumur was close by (25 mins drive), but a car is essential for getting out and about in the area.
