Lovely apartment and setting. enjoyed the intimate setting. perfect for couple or two. David and Lise went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. even visited on Christmas Day to wish us a happy holiday. Highly recommended.
This is a very well placed property for exploring the Loire Valley. David was very accommodating and gave some excellent tips for the region. There are many day trips to be done from this central location.
Well, there isn´t much that we could add, except that what our predecessors said about Lise and David and their beautiful home is true. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are just sorry we weren´t able to follow up on half the suggestions Lise had for us during introduction.
On he other side, that gives us a good reason to return and catch up ;-)

We stayed in Monts for 5 nights on our honeymoon and we almost wished we have planned nothing else (and we spend 5 nights in Paris)! Lise and David were wonderful to deal with from start to finish and even had some wonderful honeymoon themed treats for us upon arrival. After an incredibly thorough orientation by Lise we were left on our own. A wonderfully cozy set up awaited us with a selling feature we had no idea about until we went to bed the first night. This is an old mill that the water still runs under underneath (Lise gave us a history lesson and they still have to watch the water levels to control the water going downstream) and If you have ever slept with natural water flows just outside your window, you know that this leads to the best sleep you will ever have. There are huge windows that open wide to get a view of the Indre river and allow the relaxing sounds of the river flow into your bedroom and dining room. We were fully relaxed and our cares melted away within minutes. The town of Monts is a beautiful mix of old and new. Make sure you go to market Saturday morning and take a walk along the river. There are bikes at your disposal and kayaks/canoes for the river (HUGE BONUS). We took the bikes out as the Loire is famous for it biking at hit two Chateaus in a day via bike (after Lise's recommendation). It was a long bike ride (30 ish km) but so worth it. Riding through rows of wine and sunflowers along with small villages full of people who all say "bonjour" as you pedal by. This really is a special part of the world. If you are in the area stay here! The place is cozy and so relaxing! It's an old building so don't expect hot tubs and chefs kitchens, but do expect to have access to good REAL food and a relaxing stay. For dinner, go to the Carousel de Saveurs ( I think that's the name-Lise would be able to tell you for sure). Coming from someone in the industry, this food is excellent and well made-and the dessert is to die for. My wife will not stop talking about it. We recommend Lise and David's place for anyone staying in the area. We saw all the great Chateaus- Clos Luce/Amboise, Chenonceau, Villandy...etc, all within a 45 minute drive. We will be back and will hope to stay with Lise and David again...such nice and professional hosts!
Nice relaxing place. The kitchen Is good enough for breakfast, and lunch but a little small and under stocked to cook dinner.
David and Lise were wonderful, generous hosts who were always keen to share their knowledge about local attractions and restaurants. This added greatly to our enjoyment of our stay. We stayed in the ground floor apartment which was charming and consistent with the photos posted on the website. Bicycles were available which we used to ride to the nearby Azay de Rideau chateau - magic! There is also an upstairs apartment at the mill - if we stayed here again we would definitely pay the extra to stay in the upstairs apartment as a fair bit of noise is transmitted to the ground floor apartment below and the upstairs apartment also has a washing machine. Overall a wonderful stay.
Lies was a wonderful source of information and very welcoming. A special place to stay in a very beautiful part of France
We had a great time at the Moulin de Monts. Lise was a very kind host, full of information and tips. The environment is great, there is so much to see and do: the great and small chateaus, the beautiful villages, the woods and parcs. And after each sightseeing day we came back to the mill and enjoyed the quiet and comfortable apartment and the profound pleasure of looking out over the Indre streaming outside our window.
Lise and David made us feel extremely welcome and were a wealth of information on the local area.
Fantastic location, beautiful countryside and plenty to do. Lise and David were extremely hospitable and friendly. Lise advised us on where to go and what to do which was really useful. The hotel restaurant just a few minutes walk away was brilliant! It was a superb vacation and I would recommend it to (website hidden) you really do need a car to get about.
I know David and Hind-Lise for over 25 years and I can truly say that they are my family.
They are reliable, honest and very friendly. They will do their best to make your stay the most enjoyable. Go see them and enjoy their beautiful 16th century mills located one of the best French region.
