Gorgeous setting. Delightful space. Sarah is English and absolutely enjoys interaction, calling for reservations and seems to constantly want to build on her ability to make recommendations for her guests (asking us about the quality of food at restaurants and the nature of the experience at wine tastings). Would only stay here when we are in this area!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Chalet. Sarah made us feel very welcome. The Chalet was presented in a very appealing way, very very clean, and cosy with many amenities . She genuinely cares for her guests to ensure they have a good time at the Chalet and in the area. We totally recomend The Chalet to everyone.

Sarah was very welcoming and accommodating. She offered to pick up groceries for us ahead of time and even offered us a late check out. She could not have been friendlier and the chalet was a great central location for visiting Châteaux!

We enjoyed a wonderful stay in Sarah and Marc's chalet with our toddler and baby. The house was perfect, well stocked and in a beautiful setting, and Sarah and Marc were fabulous hosts. It is situated very close to lots of places to visit and we would strongly recommend staying here!

That's me in the photo, showing off my new purchase last year, a lovely old Peugeot 206 Cabriolet! Having spent most of my adult life living in London a Cabriolet was not an option. In the Loire Valley, with it's amazing sun sets, miles of stunning countryside and beautiful scenery, it is the ONLY option – well alongside bicycles and helicopters and hot air balloons of course !

My lovely husband Marc, a true Tourangeaux and fabulous French Chef (yes, he really does do that for a living !) and I love hosting, love the interaction with our guests and love the fact that so many wonderful people from all over the world have discovered our little corner of the world by staying at our chalet. It really is a real get away from it all experience,and a wonderful base from which to explore this stunning part of rural France.
