If you are looking for a relaxing get away then stop looking and book Jasmine Cottage. This place is a little slice of heaven. The surroundings are beautiful and peaceful. Outside you have so much space to relax in the pool, hot tub, hammock, wooden swing, seating area. 4 people can have their own space to relax. Inside, Sandra and Nigel have thought of pretty much everything you'll need for a holiday away. The cottage is perfectly equipped with anything you need: cutlery, plates and cooking utensils; bedding, towels, pool towels; TV in French & English, WiFi, books and games. The cottage is clearly loved by the owners and you won't meet nicer people either - nothing is too much trouble. On the other hand, you don't know they live next door. A perfect balance.
Locally there is a town about 10-15 minutes away which is worth a visit and has amenities needed. There are so many places to visit too if you can drag yourself away from relaxing in the cottage.
We cannot recommend Jasmine Cottage more highly - you will bot be disappointed.

Jasmin Cottage was all we expected rom the description on the website and so much more.

Very friendly owners who were charming and discreet, but there if you needed them.

An idyllic cottage in a remote location, perfect for enjoying the quiet rural atmosphere of France.

A wonderful time was had by all.

Jasmine cottage looked attractive on line but the reality was even better. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped, perfectly suited for two couples, with one ground level bedroom, and one first floor There was.plenty of opportunity for privacy as well as for sharing in the lounge and dining room.
The outside space is excellent, beautifully landscaped and planted with extensive lawn, trees, shrubs and flowers. Each day we used the sheltered patio for meals, shaded from the direct sun and looking out over the gardens and the beautiful landscape of the Loire. The plunge pool and the hot tub were great fun and we also made good use of the table tennis and the croquet as well as the bicycles and the boules. When we got tired of action we could choose from several restful places to sit and relax before lighting the barbeque. Jasmine was such a pleasant environment that we we stayed there for most of our holiday, going out occasionally to the boulangerie, shop and nearby market and making brief visits to the fascinating towns of Richelieu, Chinon and Saumur The owners could not have been more welcoming and hospitable, respecting our privacy but available to give help and advice. They are very nice people and their care for the gite is obviously a labour of love. We were two couples, one older and one young but we all enjoyed this special place and we intend to return.
