What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In Contin To Rent.
Amanda - verified booking
"This is a very traditional gite. We stayed in early June.The beds are very comfortable, (we brought our own linen, pillows & mattress protectors) there are three bedrooms - two doubles one of which only has a velux window, the third bedroom has bunk beds. As the bedrooms get hot the owners have kindly provided fans to aid a restful sleep. The bathroom has a shower over the bath - put the shower to full power to ensure hot water flow. Remember to bring your own towels for both the bathroom and swimming pool. The kitchen is reasonably equipped, the oven doors requires assistance to keep a good heat seal but otherwise very efficient, there is a dishwasher and washing machine so remember your tablets, powder and tea towels. The living area is also comfortable, the TV does have english channels including CBeebies and a DVD player (does not take blue ray), a high chair is provided and in general is a large comfortable space. Outside there is a barbecue which is great along with a large table and chairs. The swimming pool is wonderful, if you have good weather you will really enjoy using this on a daily basis. The gardens are delightful, very traditional with the father of the house (plus delightful dog) tending the fruits and vegetables. There is a pond at the far end - would recommend not allowing children to play in this area unsupervised. Situated outside of Chinon (15 min drive max) where there are great shops and supermarkets for all your needs. This is a great location for cycling out of as you are straight on to country lanes and roads. The owners are delightful; charming, hospitable and friendly."

"We had a fantastic time staying at S118413 in August. The cottage was perfect for our needs, with our two sons (aged 13 and 11), taking over the top floor which included an extra sitting room additionally to the bedroom (which is not mentioned in the property descrition I guess because there are a couple of beams to duck under up there). We could walk into Saumur in about 45 mins but we also hired bikes from Karen and Andre, the owners, allowing us the option to cycle down and beyond. The cottage has a large garden, great for relaxing in after a busy day, with garden furniture and barbeque provided. It would also be an option for someone with any mobility issues, given all the main facilities were on the ground floor, including main bedroom and bathroom with walk-in shower. We found the cottage an excellent base, allowing us to explore the Loire region easily. We even got a train to Paris for the night too. Karen and Andre were excellent; close enough to be on hand to answer any questions we had but happy to leave us to it the rest of the time. And the welcome wine they provided was well appreciated. This was our first trip to the Loire Valley and we loved it, with the cottage being a big part of this. We'll definitely be back!"

"This is a very attractive cottage in a very convenient location for many chateaus and historic towns. It’s well equipped but quite small, especially the living room which is also the kitchen and dining room. If you’re tall the beams in the main upstairs bedroom can be a problem, although we guess that’s part of the charm. It was fine for just two of us or if you have small kids but it’s not really suitable for four adults. Although the bathroom, kitchen fixtures and bedding were all spotless, the cottage needed a good spring clean - there were cob webs and dead flies in the light fittings and probably other places we didn’t look. We mentioned this to the hosts. We didn’t mind the 60 Euro cleaning charge because we paid a fairly low off-peak rate, but we would have been upset by the charge if we’d paid any more given the lack of a recent and thorough clean. The hosts were very friendly and we enjoyed the outside space and bbq patio. The cottage is within the hosts’ walled garden which is lovely if a little claustrophobic."

"Just outside Chinon, this spacious property was very comfortable with a delightfully friendly helpful host. The situation and setting is truly unique as part of an historic chateau but very private and quiet with plenty of outside space. It was clean and well equipped well suited to a family or couples. There was a lot to do locally reducing the need to travel far in the car including easy access to the river Vienne on foot at the bottom of the lane plus an established wine maker 150m away producing delicious wine from his Cabernet Franc vines. No need to drive after the tasting, perfect. Chateau Breze with its chateau under a chateau was a favourite as well as Chateau de Rivaud just ten minutes away with its quirkiness and excellent lunch. One of our best holidays in France and we have had a few, highly recommended."
Anne - verified booking
"Overall very disappointed. We are a couple and stayed for 1 week but still had to pay the full Euro 70 cleaning charge that was hidden in the small print and in addition to the rental price. The house wasn't clean. The BBQ wasn't really one but an outdoor electric grill. It was running with dirt and fat. There were no cleaning products and the toilet roll was left with 1 sheet on it - and no spares.The house was a bit run down - full of cast off kitchen equipment stuffed into drawers and the house was filled with the owners' family bric a brac. Many furniture surfaces were covered with thick polythene. There were a multitude of 'don't do this' signs. For 8 people the kitchen and BBQ would have been far too small to cook.However the pool was large and clean but there was no shade."
