Great place, the house is huge and amazing, with a great view over the surroundings. Robert was a kind and very helpful host, he simplify out stay with lots of advices.
Hope to come back in summertime to enjoy the pool!!
This is a beautiful part of the world and it was nice to stay in a home that was full of history. You don't expect everything in the home to be what we're used to in our day-to-day existence but this place has drawing power! We were fortunate to time our visit when an festival of antique musical machines was featured in a nearby village. The sense of occasion, the period dress of those performing with their musical instruments and the orderliness of the village itself was something we will never forget. Couple all this with caring hosts and you have an experience that will be talked about for years to come!
L'accueil très sympathique de Robbie nous a charmé de suite ! Et nous avons été plus que conquis par son gîte au calme, au milieu d'un magnifique panorama sur les vignes du Beaujolais. La maison est très agréable, propre et confortable. Nous étions installés comme chez des amis ! Les peintures de Robbie sont à l'image de notre hôte : fine, lumineuse et chaleureuse ... Encore un grand merci à Louise et Robbie pour leur extrême gentillesse. A très bientôt, c'est sûr ! :)
Stayed in Roberts house for 4 days and loved it. In the middle of a little village surrounded by vineyards, the house had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Thank you very much
We spend 15 days of our honeymoon at the gite, mid-October, 2012. We rented a car which served us to explore and enjoy the villages and communities neighboring Moiré, yet many days & nights were spent happily cooking & enjoying the main floor, open kitchen & living space. Burning wood in the fireplace, drinking local wine, reading, trying new recipes, movies curled up on the couch, .. it was our home for 2 weeks, we slept well & found the space to let go and relax. Our to-do list included; a few beautiful rode trips through the Alps and exploring surrounding cities & villages, going to the patissier for baguette's, swinging by our favorite cave (Domaine la Guillardiere in Oingt), weekly farmer's market in Le Bois d'Oingt, hanging out in the secret garden watching the sunset.. The water in the pool was too cold for us to swim, next time. Even the view of the pool made us happy and we cooked with many of the herbs growing throughout the pool-side garden. And we hung our clothes on the outdoor line to dry.. a very inspiring & welcoming home space.
The neighbor's, main house on the grounds, were great & we loved their small dog Basel (sp?). The layout of the grounds and houses provide awesome privacy. There were a few roosters who had a lovely home near the back of the yard, whom we shared our vegetable scraps with - all this, made our holiday even more wonderful.
Robert is pleasure to work with! Great communication & details on the gite, Moiré, and the surroundings, very clean, a wonderful welcome upon arrival and all the special touches (thank you, Dawn). Amazing region, beautiful people, fabulous food & wine, and the gite. We will return!
Great for a two, comfortable space for four (kids or close friends/family).
From where should I began ?! The village is just an hour drive away from Lyon, and yet it is exactly the opposite of this crazy city. I could find calm and meet the beauty of nature in this part of France.
I stayed there with my father and uncle were visiting me, and I had the best decision to take them this house, we had a lot of fun. Everything was there, all we needed to bring is ourselves, and began enjoying the surroundings and the place itself.
Robert was the most kind and helpful even-thought he was traveling himself, he gave us a great example of British hospitality.
You can come here in all seasons, in the summer in the garden and the pool and in the winter for the ping pong table and chimney fire.
I would definitely love to come back again, hopefully you'll like it as much as I did.
We just had a great weekend at La Folie des Artistes in Beaujolais. We're a family of 4 with 2 young children. The gîte is fantastic, the garden is just perfect for the kids and the view when you open your window in the morning is breathtaking. It was a bit cold to enjoy the swimming pool like one should but it was very clean and well maintained.
A perfect getaway with young children!
We loved our stay at Robert's chateau. The village of Moire is lovely. It's a tiny village, typical of the area, with not much more that a few houses and the local church. It's a perfect base for exploring the Beaujolais and its many wineries.
Robert recommended several good restaurants in the area but we spent most nights cooking dinner in his huge kitchen and enjoying the views over the French countryside.
Robert was a great host and the communication before and during our stay was perfect. If you are looking for a peaceful location in the French countryside, then look no further than La Folie des Artistes, Beaujolais.
We found the Gite at Moire to be a perfect countryside getaway. Robert is a good communicator and worked with us to make sure everything went smoothly. The facilities are beautiful and the surrounding countryside is magnificent. Everything was clean and well maintained. We would not hesitate to rent from Robert in the future and recommend him highly.
