"Una perla in uno scrigno di tesori"

La pace e la serenità che si respirano in questa piccola città-gioiello medioevale, nel cuore della Touraine, sono amplificate in questa splendida ed originale casa storica che è stata ristrutturat… More

Quale gioia più grande di assaporare il nascere di un'amicizia con degli ospiti che provengono dalla tua patria! Ritrovarli sorridenti a sera, dopo giornate intense trascorse a scoprire i tesori di un territorio che non termina mai di stupirti per la sua storia e la sua natura....
Penso che la soddisfazione più grande per chi fa una scelta di vita come la mia sia quella di sentirsi chiedere se è possibile prolungare la vacanza, rimanere da te ancora qualche giorno per “non interrompere il sogno”...
Grazie a voi, Maríka e Fulvio di tutto il vostro calore! Resteró qui ad attendervi per quando desidererete riprendere il vostro sogno…
Un abbraccio affettuoso, Silvia & Lilli

Famille magnifique qui se comporte comme chez elle, avec le même respect envers les choses et les lieux de la maison. Une propreté et une discrétion sans pareilles, unies au plaisir de petits échanges en début de journée ou le soir… Et la petite Marion, la fleur la plus belle de mon jardin, qui quittait en avance son petit déjeuner pour venir m'aider à soigner les plantes, avec son regard sérieux et attentif, enclin à cueillir n'importe quelle curiosité nouvelle dans sa petite vie en devenir…
Dans l'espoir tout sincère de vous rencontrer à nouveau, on vous souhaite tout le bonheur du monde… Silvia & Lilli

"Great studio in medieval surroundings"

The location of the studio is great, in the middle of the centre of Loches, but it's also quiet enough to sit in the garden with a book. The house and garden are absolutely gorgious. We love the … More

Dear Jaqueline and Jelle, it was very nice to see you enjoy the garden, sunbathe on the lawn, immersed in reading, have a drink and talking together… Thanks for our many exchanges, and yours suggestions to improve my service!
I hope to give to you another time the chance to relax you in my garden after a year of hard work…
All the best to you two,
Silvia & Lilli
