Lieve and Kobe so kind young couple, just married. It was a pleasure to receive you, to see your interest to discover the region. Your smile every morning at breakfast, your pleasure to taste local products and fruits and cakes with the apple of the garden. Just the envy to give you the best cooking, and to share your enthousiasm about the visits you made around. Come back soon!

Simply perfect! Marie is a warm, passionate and wonderfully generous host, keen to assist in every way with a beautiful cottage, nestled between la Loire and le Cher. We were truly grateful for her introductions to the Loire, its chateaux and its local wines, in particular the arrangements she made on our behalf to visit wineries in Chinon and Saumur. We look forward to our return.

Response from Marie:
So kind to receive both of you with all your envy to discover this little paradise which is Touraine. Between Villandry and its beautiful garden, your Loire Valley tastings in selected vineyards Chinon, Saumur. So fine bike rides & runnings between CHER and LOIRE rivers. You experimented relaxation, sport, and gastronomy. Return fast! As soon as the TOURAINE NOBLE JOUÉ finished its grape harvests. You will appreciate. Your enjoyment and your humor brightened up every morning!

We had great wine tasting experiences, amazing food and found the best chocolate place in tours, thanks to Marie :* Also the breakfast was a pleasure, amazing food and amazing conversations :) And even for our stay in Paris we got great insider tips from Marie. All in all an unforgettable experience, Thank you Marie!!!:*

The new generation will prepare us a colourful world, thought with ideas, and willing to make it confortable & designed! What else?

Staying with Marie is like staying with an old friend; from the start she does everything she can to make you feel comfortable and welcome. Drinks and nibbles on the first night as soon as we arrived were lovely as we could really get to know Marie and she helped us decide how to spend our next few days with her by getting out her guide books and maps and showing us what to do nearby. Breakfast was served every morning with fresh croissants and bread from the local boulangerie and fresh fruit prepared lovingly. She would always wait for us after our meal in the evenings and be on hand to welcome us back and offer us a delicious herbal tea from her garden. You can tell that for Marie this is not just a business but a true passion of hers and she loves every bit of having guests. She is always on hand to look after you, book tables for you, translate and be the perfect guide. I would not hesitate in going back to stay with her. We stayed here for a 70th Birthday treat from myself to my Father and she helped make it very special. 5 stars. *****

Thanks for your kind words. Always a pleasure to receive guests at "Une Maison, Un Jardin". This was a "special occasion". 70th Daddy's birthday. It had to be fabulous. I tried to help to make the gift as memorable as possible. Come back, soon.

Marie welcomed us into her house upon our arrival and gave us a quick tour. She was very generous by also providing a few things in the fridge (fruit, champagne, water, etc) to help start our vacation. The house is located near touristy spots that we like to visit such as Chateau de Villandry. Inside, Marie had the house fully stocked with anything you could possibly need during your stay (cooking paraphernalia, glassware, towels, etc). Both bedroom were comfortable, although I give a slight preference to the red one. The area is perfect. Overall, I highly recommend the house and the area; I can't imagine anybody not liking both.

Nous sommes ravis de notre séjour chez Marie, tout était parfait: l'emplacement du gite, la chambre spacieuse, le cadre très agréable, la propreté, la qualité des produits que Marie nous a servi, ainsi que son incroyable gentillesse et hospitalité. Si nous retournons dans la région, nous retournerons chez Marie sans hésiter!
