"Always a good time"
I've been visiting the villas every year now for a few years. Mike and Linda are always such a joy to see again and the area itself is lovely with much to do (and eat!). The main town of Tours is close enough to be easy to travel to while Marcilly itself provides a lovely relaxing atmosphere. The Loire valley clearly prides itself on providing wines and cheeses: everywhere you go you'll find a vineyard of some description. It also has a rich history of chivalry, resulting in many many castles.
