Ten ducks (but the number may have risen before you arrive) help with egg production and wander around looking cute.

Year property purchased 2015
Why this location? The Garden of France, far south enough for the better weather, yet near enough to the ports to make travel easy. Surrounded by royal chateaux, there is SO much to see and do.
Unique benefits of property We have 2 gites, a 1 and a 2 bed gite. They can be booked together for a larger group. We are just minutes from the town of Chateau du Loir, yet rural enough to have incredible peace and a beautiful dawn chorus.

If you don't travel to visit all the chateaus of the Loire, this is a great place to stay. It is a great location in a pretty part of the Val du Loir, and we enjoyed our local walks. Chateau du Loir is a short, flat walk and provides all that you need whilst there are two large supermarkets on the outskirts. There are interesting places to visit within an hour's drive. British TV kept us going when the weather was less than ideal!

Owner response

Hi John. I am sorry to see that several aspects of your stay with us did not reach your expectations, especially as we asked regularly during your stay, but likewise a little confused having read the review left in our guest book? Please feel free to offer any suggestions as to how we can improve.
Unfortunately we can not control the weather.
