Awesome country side retreat, with all the comfort of a vacation home and more. But most of All Julie and Jeremy are wonderful guests. Julie had tones of tips for us for visiting the nearby castle. Jeremy bikes for us. The kids loved the house. There is everything you need for a quite relaxing family weekend. Highly recommended!,

Response from Julie:
We so enjoyed having Sebastien and his young family stay. Such a nice couple with beautifully behaved daughters. They are very interesting and friendly and we'd recommend them 110% to future hosts - I'm sure they'll be staying in other Airbnb's as they're tri-lingual globetrotters!

Jeremy and Julie were very welcoming and open to share what they know with us. It had been a wonderful interaction and exchange of experiences with each other during our stay with them. Julie tried to make sure that we were alright and comfortable. She provided us with extra portable heater to keep us warmer when she heard that we were not used to the cool temperature, having come from a tropical country. The cottage was nice and clean, fully equipped kitchen. They have a big garden which our children enjoyed exploring and playing around at. There were toys and board games too, which kept our children entertained. The only thing that could be better is if there is a dryer for the laundry. And you will need to drive to get around. Overall a nice place to rest and relax.

Great cottage in a very convenient location to visit the Loire valley castles. Very comfortable for a family of four; having separate bathrooms is a definite plus. The hosts are very nice and friendly, making sure you enjoy your stay. They can provide great advice on things to do or see in the area and even have bikes (of all sizes) available for trips around the region. Unfortunately we could not try the pool, as the weather was quite terrible. Overall, we would recommend to our friends and family to stay at Julie and Jeremy's when visiting the area.

Had a lovely stay at this place in Monteaux perfectly positioned in the Loire Valley. Easy walking distance to the village of Monteaux and we loved our morning strolls to town for croissants and baguettes. Julie and her husband are the perfect hosts, on hand with tips, and shared beautiful fresh eggs from their chickens, and even a hot water bottle for an ailing back. Was very child friendly and our 14 month old loved toddling around the garden, the chickens and their very sweet dog. Easy distance from Amboise and larger attractions of the Loire Valley

We (Julie and Jeremy) are very much involved in tourism and will be happy to office advice, should required. We have two children, Tom and Emma, 28 and 25 years old.Tom works in Paris in digital communication and Emma is a lawyer who lives in Tours. We also have a very friendly dog Banjo that all our visitors fall in love with. Jeremy and I love travelling ourselves and try to get away during the winter months. We can't live without travel and love meeting other like-minded, world travelled people. Having just discovered Airbnb, we'll certainly be booking our own accommodation through them! Life's so short and the world's a really big place to discover!!
