“Beautiful medieval apartment in an amazing location”
Reviewed 13 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

person found this review helpful

This medieval apartment was a perfect place for our family (3 kids) to stay in Chinon. It's located in the heart of the town with everything we wanted within a couple minutes walk. We found the apartment to be surprisingly large, extremely comfortable, beautifully furnished and very well stocked. I especially loved how it was decorated. In Chinon we rented bikes, visited Chateau D'Usse (our favourite castle visit), toured the wine caves under the fortress and found a small fair for our kids beside the river. We had a great time. Nathalie was a great host!

“Truly atmospheric and welcoming”

We stayed here for a week with our young children. It's very well equipped with more than you would ever expect to have while renting. Very spacious.
The owners could not have been more helpful when we got in touch about things (parking etc).
We had a lovely holiday and would highly recommend this place to others.
We missed getting more sunlight at times but really couldn't fault the place or the attention to detail.

“Amazing”

We got lost on our way from Paris and ended up arriving two hours later than we had told our host. Despite the fact that she too was trying to go on a trip she was very gracious and understanding. We absolutely loved staying here. The house is amazing and ended up being the most memorable part of our trip. Thank you so much for a great experience. We really hope to be able to return one day.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 18 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

people found this review helpful

Four of us (two couples) stayed in this utterly charming holiday rental apartment for a week, while visiting the Loire Valley. It's in a genuinely historical fourteenth century building, above a wine bar in a picturesque Old Chinon street. Just across from the entrance, on the side of the building, is an ancient well where Joan of Arc allegedly descended from her horse, on her way to meet with the Dauphin of France. (The site of that meeting is in the Chinon chateau, overlooking the town.)

The gite is very spacious, and has been outfitted very comfortably, with ample linens, a compact but complete kitchen, television, Wifi, anything you might need during your stay. For other needs, there's a small Carrefour store within easy walking distance. There is an immense master bedroom, a good sized second bedroom with twin beds, and a day bed in the (large) living room. There is also a well organized book filled with information about the gite and the community, plus books and brochures covering the many places of interest within easy walking and driving distance.

There is no parking lot at the site, but Mme Richard provides a map showing where guests can park for free. She requested a deposit on reservation; then the balance was due on or before arrival, either in cash or through Paypal. This is the first time I've reserved a gite, and the process was simple and well organized.

The only caveat: This is a very old and historic building, and therefore has no elevator. Access to the gite is via a small, winding stairway (33 steps). Not the best choice for those with limited mobility, but, if you're able to climb stairs, it's well worth the extra effort!
