Here’s what our Loire valley gites guests are saying:
- “Karin and Simon were the perfect hosts – in fact it was the little extra’s that we will remember most : a survival pack on our arrival as it was Bastille day and we weren’t sure if anything would be open, the wine tour with Simon to meet the passionate and innovative local wine maker Pierre, Simons sensational BBQ for two Aussies, the free use of bikes and some lovely company over the week.”
- “Manoir de Gourin is situated in a peaceful, quiet, idyllic spot and we enjoyed going for walks in the evening after dinner, around the country roads and surrounding farmland with lovely views over the stretching fields and setting sun.”
- “It was great to pre-order our breads and pastries for the week, hang the bag out the night before, and find it there delivered at 8am the next morning on our doorstep!”
- “Booking self-catering, especially at the last minute, can be risky as we know. However, as soon as we arrived at Le Manoir from Nantes airport, we knew we had hit on a winner.”
- “Beautiful place to stay. Apartment well thought out. Everything required provided. Excellent generous hosts. Great wine tour.”
- “We spent an evening with our hosts for a dinner and wine tasting, which was absolutely amazing.”
- “There are a number of great little restaurants nearby which is perfect for a leisurely lunch or an evening meal.”
- “Finally, thanks once again to our amazing hosts and their beautiful Loire Valley retreat. Unbeatable.”
