Danielle etait très agréable et elle a nous prêté ses bicyclettes. La visite du maison troglodyte etait superbe.
Excellent accueil de Danièle, qui a été attentionnée, disponible et nous a donné plein de bons conseils qui nous ont permis de passer un très bon sejour a Tours. Nous sommes arrivé à vélo, et le trajet du centre ville de Tours à la maison passe par les bords de Loire et est très agréable. Nous recommandons et nous reviendrons avec plaisir.
Deux nuits au calme dans un cadre vraiment atypique!! La chambre est très confortable, avec tout ce qu'il faut, et même plus! Les berges de la Loire sont à deux pas, et le centre de Tours à dix minutes. Et en plus le jardin est magnifique, parfait pour passer une fin de soirée en amoureux! Danièle a été très accueillante et prévenante, et patiente avec petit Max! Et que dire de sa gentillesse..
Our stay in Danièle's troglodyte house was great!
The house is very uncommon and special, a unique experience. But even if its "inside" the stone, the bedroom felt really comfortable and modern, also, perfectly clean.
The breakfast was very good and having it in the garden was a perfect way to start the day.
Danièle and her family were very welcoming and nice, she explained how to reach Tours city centre and recommended some restaurants that we really liked.
I would absolutely recommend staying in this interesting place!
Danièle was really nice with me and my mother, actually my mother loved her. The house is excellent, the room, the bathroom was cleaned. The breakfast was good. But what really surprised me was the attention that the hostess gave us, took all our questions, gave all directions, tips interesting to know within what had already planned places. That was a pleasure to meet you Danièle.
We had a brilliant stay with Daniele!! The house was very interesting and the area was beautiful. Daniele was an excellent host, friendly and incredibly helpful in providing us with recommendations of where to visit, where to eat etc. We would absolutely recommend to anyone! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!!
The trogolodyte is an experience you must have! Such a beautiful home just across from the loire river. Tours is just a short bike ride away and this is a perfect location if you want to visit all the nearby wineries. Daniele was so kind and so helpful! She had tons of great tips for things to see and places to eat. Look no further, reserve this place immediately! The best place near Tours (lovely country breakfast too!!)
