Great experience at Michel place!she is very welcoming and friendly person. The room was very cute. Everything was perfectly clean and the home made breakfast very good! We definitely recommend staying in one of michel a room.
Michele and Michel are,such wonderfull hosts. They welcomed us with a glace of wine, even if we arrived late. They gave us a lot of informations about the region, the castles around. It's good to have people that are passionate about their region welcoming you!
We enjoyed staying in Michele's cute village house. Loved the house, the village and of course the people we met. Michele is a fabulous host so helpful and full of ideas of what to do and where to go. It was a fun few days, would have loved to stay longer. The room was just perfect, large, bright, clean, a very comfy bed, and great ensuite shower. Pontlevoy is a great place to base yourself to explore the region with so many Chateaux close by
Would love to return again
Thanks Carol and Graham. Very nice review. We are missing you already. I have finished painting the door and today I will varnish it, then if you could send me your private email address I'll send you a photo. I hope you will like it, but perhaps not as its too colourful....Happy holidays x
Very friendly and helpful hostess and nice village. We enjoyed the stay very much.
Michèle a été adorable ! La maison est superbe, propre et spacieuse. Elle correspondait parfaitement à nos attentes , le tout dans un village ravissant très bien situé pour visiter les châteaux de la Loire. Michèle est particulièrement serviable, le petit déjeuner impeccable ! Il faut dire qu'il s'agit d'une rencontre inoubliable : nous avons joué de la musique classique toute la semaine ( c'est une excellente violoniste , que je recommande aux pianistes pour des vacances musicales..) Nous espérons revenir vite !
Michele was a fantastic host. She made us feel extremely welcome, had some wonderful suggestions on places to eat/things to see, and was generally all around wonderful! The accommodations were fantastic, the village she lives in was small, very quaint and very close to the lovely Chateau's along the Loire.
We would definitely stay with Michele again! Nancy
Un court séjour chez Michèle pour profiter de la région et de sa jolie maison atypique mais tout confort! Un accueil très souriant et agréable en français ou en anglais ici c'est au choix!! Une bonne adresse dans un petit village tranquille.
I was looking for a different kind of Christmas and decided to spend the time in Pontlevoy at Michelle's lovely house. This was my second time there and it was like returning home when I arrived there. Michelle is so warm hearted and lovely hostess and her dog Nelson and cat Hector are almost as lovely as she. The room was just perfect for me; the bed was comfortable and shower was very convenient. I heartily recommend Michelle's place for anyone who is visiting Pontlevoy - you will not be disappointed.
We had a great stay - but not for long
If you are looking for somewhere absolutely charming, you won't find many places better than Pontlevoy. And if you want to find someone absolutely charming in Pontlevoy, you should head straight for Michelle Turner and settle straight into her cottage. We were en route back to London from the South of France and could only manage one night in the area, enabling us to visit nearby Chenonceau (Grand Designs, indeed). Michelle welcomed us almost as family (including our budgie!) and had booked us into the local hotel restaurant – for a fantastic dinner. She even walked us up to the restaurant and joined us for an aperitif, very relaxed and great fun. We felt completely at home and can't wait to come back. Frightfully clever of the Loire Valley Tourist Board to ensure that so many chateaux were built within easy reach of Pontlevoy; we'll be back to visit the rest very soon, so long as Michelle has a room for us.
