We have visited numerous Gites in France, La Louetière is by far the loveliest, most comfortable Gite we've visited. The Gite is beautifully furnished, clean, with a very well stocked kitchen. I've never seen as many dishes, utensils, cutlery etc in a holiday home, and as for the towel cupboard, Wow! Full of quality, fluffy towels. With a washing machine, and dish washer, La Louetière surely was a home from home. Nadia, the owner clearly cares about her guests and went the extra mile to ensure we had a wonderful holiday. She made herself available whenever needed. With a hot tub in the huge garden, comfortable garden furniture, and horses around the borders of the garden, we felt truly spoiled and relaxed. I actually want to keep this Gite our secret, but that would be selfish. Go and try it for yourself! Enjoy!!

A spacious gite with every facility. An exceptional host always making us very welcome.
Unfortunately the spa in the garden broke down after a few days!
Extremely helpful when our car played up! Having a French speaker (nearly) on sight was a great comfort in times of stress!

Lovely property in very quiet location but close enough to local amenities.with excellent restaurants. The photos do not do justice to the size of the garden.The hot tub was a welcome added bonus especially for our 6 year old grandson. Overall one of the best gites we have found in over thirty years holidaying in France . Would defiantly highly recommended this property.Thank you Nadine for a great holiday.

We loved it as it's so quiet and peaceful, and having everything on the ground floor is great if your a little older like us ,though there are additional rooms upstairs, we liked watching the wild life in the mornings though we have only seen partridges and rabbits in the garden. Once up and about we like to get out on the road sight seeing ,and there is just so much to see and do, we have been coming here to the Loire for years now and we are still finding new places to visit, but at this Gite we made sure that the hot tub was switched on and the temperature was set before we set off to visit wherever we were going that day as when we got back and the car was unloaded it was very nice to just relax in the hot tub, this really is the most fantastic place place to stay.
