Originally from Oxford (UK) we moved to France twenty years ago to work and live, as we enjoyed the French way of life. Our passions are cooking, the arts and music / composition.

Hôte très accueillant, et sympathique, nous mettant à l aise aussitôt dans les lieux, informations dans la maison à disposition facilitant agréablement le séjour ( commerce, marchés);
Manque juste une télévision pour les enfants,
Perfect and spacy place. Very friendly owners.
We had a lovely stay in the farm house. I spent my birthday here and Bernadette was lovely enough to give me a card and lend us baking tins to bake a birthday cake. The area surrounding the house was gorgeous too and we enjoyed long walks in the country side. The only small note of criticism would be that this place would not be suitable for anyone with a bad back as the beds are extremely soft.
Bernadette & Bob are the perfect hosts, with the perfect country cottage with plenty of space to match! Their cottage made for a wonderful and relaxing stay, and a great base for seeing the Loire châteaux and some of the gorgeous surrounding villages.
From the beginning, communication with Bernadette was easy and friendly. Throughout our stay, there was no end to Bob & Bernadette's generous hospitality, and we highly recommend Bernadette's cooking!!
We stayed here for three nights and loved it. Robert has lovingly restored this 400-year-old farmhouse and the private, two-bedroom apartment we rented had everything we needed for our stay--from a small kitchen with cooking equipment to charming furnishings to fresh roses on the table. Our hosts also provided maps and brochures for every site in the area, and shared good wine and conversation at day's end. This rural retreat is perfect for those looking for something off the beaten track. We arrived tired after three weeks of touring but left refreshed. This was also a great base for exploring the region's remarkable historic sites. Many thanks to our hosts --highly recommended.
Fabulous - really enjoyed my stay. Was very nicely welcomed and had a lovely time chatting with Robert and Bernadette. Great accommodation and off road farmhouse and parking and very quiet night
Great place. Very friendly hosts who included us in a fantastic group meal for 12 euros each.
Massive space for the night - very well appointed and clean. Slept like a log
Lovely place to stay as we dashed through France. Bob and Bernadette made us very welcome with carafe of red and some delicious home made bread. Many thanks.
We stayed at the rustic farmhouse on two occasions as it really suited what we were looking for (a central location to explore the Loire Valley).
The house is very spacious with all the appliances you would need for a long or short stay.
Bernadette and Robert are lovely hosts sharing a glass of wine with us on our first night and we spoke at length. They are very hospitable an generous people with excellent communication. Check in/check out was smooth and easy. We would definitely recommend staying here.
Rapport qualité prix correct dans une région sympathique. Mais n'attendez pas plus. Toutes les literies sont de mauvaise qualité, le wifi n'est disponible que chez les hôtes et l'équipement est minimum.
We have known Bob for 10 years.He is an intelligent, interesting, generous person always so willing to help anyone who needs it.Bernadette and Bob are excellent attentive hosts and anyone staying in their charming 'gite' will be assured of a warm (website hidden) eat a meal cooked by Bernadette is always a gastronomic experience of the highest standard.
We've known Robert for almost 20 years, since we bought a property in the village. He is a generous host, a good cook and excellent company. If you are good he will play you a tune on the piano, which is his passion next to Bernadette and the cats.
By the way, it's a lovely property in the real France, which any visitor to this lovely country will enjoy.
