Interaction with Guests

I live on the first floor of the same house and I'm always available for any need. This one for me, more than a job, it's a philosophy of life, a desire to meet and welcome guests from everywhere, to enrich myself by mutual trade and trying to make the guests stay for those that can not be forgotten, to remember with a smile...
I do my best to give efficiency, while maintaining simplicity and straghtforwardness, in respectful balance between the desire of each one to exchange and the need of privacy

The Neighborhood

Every corner of the city and a lot of panoramic views offer special emotions each hour, day and night...

Getting around

In Loches there is a train station, linked to the city of Tours and Châteauroux. The station is within walking distance from the house, but when you arrive with incovenient baggage,I'll come to pick you up. Tours, in turn, is connected by TGV to Paris and its airports (in just over an hour).
In Tours there is also an airport. If you arrive in Tours at time ill-served by local transport, among other services that I offer there is the taxi from the train station or airport to your accommodation

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • C'est avec regret que nous avons quitté notre petit refuge chez Sylvia, Nous garderons un doux souvenir de sa maison authentique , de son jardin merveilleux et de son pigeonnier exceptionnel. Même en novembre on a pu profiter de son chaleureux accueil, de son bon petit déjeuner, de son chat affectueux qui venait nous saluer tous les jours, de son appartement où un lit très agréable vous attend. Son emplacement est idéal pour découvrir la ville et la cité royale; Bref, on recommande chaleureusement. Thierry et Dominique
