We really enjoyed our stay at Lise and David's charming water mill property! Lise was very welcoming and full of knowledge and great suggestions for the local area. She reccommended some sights/activities we would not have seen/done otherwise and are so happy we did. The amenities were also thoughtful (bikes, kayaks, tourist brochures & maps, a shopping cart for the market). The studio was spacious, nicely decorated, and we enjoyed sitting outside on the deck drinking coffee. We would love to return and spend more time here. Thank you so much for all of your hospitality!

We loved our stay at the Le Moulin de Monts, and extended our say to 10 days. We stayed in the studio which was very comfortable for a couple, nice bathroom, comfy bed and nicely furnished. Our favourite evenings where spent sitting on the small back landing with wine and cheese watching the water cascade over the weir. Monts is a lovely historic town with all conveniences and a great gateway to the Loire valley. There's heaps of of amazing castles chateaus and mills to see, cycling and walking trails, wine tours and resturants, or just exploring back county roads and amazing historic villages. If your at all interested in old rusty machinery (I'm a bit of a steam buff) then don't miss The Maurice Defesne museum. I wasn't expecting much but I think this has got to be one of the biggest and diverse collections of early industrial machinery in the world. Couldn't believe I'd never heard of it.

We loved staying here. It’s a great base to see the area. And, when you’re sitting out back, looking over the river, looking out over the lush yard, you feel a million miles away. David and Lise were wonderful hosts and created a wonderful place we called home for 5 days. They were great at helping us plan our days and made our time there so enjoyable. When we arrived, they had a wonderful loaf of bread, a bottle of wine, and a bottle of the most amazing local apple juice. We received a great orientation to the area and sites with detailed maps. We highly recommend staying – you will not regret it and plan a second trip just as we are. If quite is important to you, check to see if the upper 2-bedroom unit will be rented – depending on your needs, it could be a little loud. No big issue for us. Thank you David and Lise – you really made our time in the Loire memorable.

If you find yourself in Monts, or any of the surrounding areas, stay at David and Lise's place. We have airbnb'ed across Europe for a month now and this is by far the best place we have stayed. David and Lise are available and go out of their way to help you get situated and enjoy the Loire Valley. By all means, take advantage of the bikes and canoes (their moulin is right on the river!). There are several bike "tour" maps that will provide you with spectacular bike routes around the area. It is under 30 min by car, to Chinon, the place to go if you plan to wine taste. There is also a map that they provide for the Rue de Vin just outside of Monts. I can't say enough about David and Lise's place. It is a little slice of heaven on earth. Enjoy, and thanks!

Nice location on a beautiful and quiet Indre-river. Lise and David have been very kind, providing bicycles in right sizes and canoos. Great reception with lots of information about the area. Great for kids, our ten-year old loved it!

We enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere of this unusual and interesting place. Lise made us feel very welcome and well-cared for. She also gave us much valuable information about the area and the places to visit. I liked the river scene and the sound of the water flowing by.
