"Another fantastic stay at Le Grenier!"
This was our third visit to Le Grenier in 3 years and yet again we were not disappointed. The gite is absolutely fantastic and certainly has the 'wow factor'. Since our last visit new lamps have been added to the lounge, an iPod docking station in the kitchen, new sun loungers for the gorgeous, private garden, a new gas barbecue and a new double quilt for the main bedroom. This constant attention to detail and focus on providing a real 'home away from home' is what makes Le Grenier so special. If you book a stay here you will not be disappointed by the standard on offer. This has to be one of the best gites on offer in the Loire valley. We're already looking forward to visiting again next year!

"Pure bliss - the place to excape to"
Having stayed in many holiday cottages, this is definitely the one to benchmark all the others! Le Grenier is very well presented, is extremely well equipped and maintained to the highest standards
The secret to this excellence is clearly the two donkeys that are ever-present and well supervised by Norman the cat who appears just like the proverbial Genie. The is also a guy called Andrew who was very welcoming and will always appear if you pop a cork!
It was our first visit to the Loire region and there is so much to see we shall definitely be returning to continue our explorations. The only problem is that the gite is so relaxing its almost too much trouble to venture out, its perfect to relax in and well placed to explore a very interesting region, with lots of excellent restaurants and endless vineyards to sample.
We would highly recommend a stay here.

"Fantastic gite in beautiful surroundings"
Le Grenier is a large gite in a very rural location surrounded by beautiful countryside, birds and wildlife. It's well equipped with plenty of space for the kids, with the added attraction of Samson and Zeus, plus of course the ever present Norman! There are a selection of bikes for the use of the guests, as well as space to play badminton, basketball, etc.
The owner, Andrew (Jackie was away), was incredibly accommodating and a wonderful host and it was nice to share a drink two with him and chat about life in France.
We would definitely recommend Le Grenier and look forward to returning next year!

"Le Grenier is simply beautiful, spacious and almost too comfortable!"
Myself, Sandie and our two children 11 and 7 travelled from Dublin. This was our first time in a Gite so to be honest we didn't fully know what to expect. Warmly welcomed by Andrew & Jackie, we were shown around our gite and can only say that we were delighted far beyond our expectations. It had everything we needed for an ideal Loire Valley base. Le Grenier is simply beautiful, spacious and almost too comfortable!
It's a great location for access to Saumur and numerous lovely rural towns like Montreuil Bellay and Le Puis de Notre Dame. The zoo at Doue la Fontaine was good fun, as are the numerous chateaux and wine tasting experiences. There are very nice restaurants to be found in the surrounding towns. We did sample a couple in our week there but invariably we found ourselves looking forward to getting back to Le Grenier, light the barbecue and soak up the evening sun in the garden.
I would highly recommend a stay here.

"The First Place we Book Every Year!! What does that say.....!!"
This was our third stay in Le Grenier and we will certainly be coming back again. We just know the gite will be spotlessly clean and not just home from home, but better. We have the space and privacy we crave for and the children just love it as well. There is plenty to do in the area and yet always nice to come back 'home' to Le Grenier. The Zoo is a must as are the local markets, chateaux and restaurants. We just love being able to get on the bikes and cycle around the lanes and through the vineyards. Jackie and Andrew are available if we wish to have a chat or glass of wine or discuss life in France. You can't beat it!!!

"Beautiful gite, perfect to relax in and well placed to explore a very interesting region."
Having stayed in gites of varying quality in many countries this was undoubtedly one of the best in a lovely region to explore. Andrew and Jackie were very welcoming and helpful and the property very comfortable and homely.We loved it and intend to return.
We had very detailed feedback and have dealt with the issues raised. They were only minor but we do really try and get candid feedback. We have a policy of continual improvement and hope that all future guests will benefit and continue to give us such positive reveiews.
