Very Good

“A great French escape, or the greatest?”

Reviewed 17 Jan 2014

First, no matter what I write, I won’t be able to adequately describe the true comfort and beauty of this place or the warmth and graciousness of the hosts. This home is situated in idyllic farmland near a small town in one of the most scenic parts of France. Castles and manor homes with rambling stone fences abound and one is never more than a few kilometers from some site or another with a history that stretches back centuries. The pace here is slow, unhurried, relaxed. It is country without being bucolic. People are few and far between but a short drive on the tight, winding roads will take you to cafes and wine shops and markets. The Old Barn sits on the same plot as the hosts’ home. It is an old farmhouse property that has been restored and modernized with great love and attention to detail. The barn has been transformed from a place where hay went to die to an extraordinary respite from the bustle of a busy world. The floor space is larger than you would think, a long room with a high ceiling that manages to accommodate a handsome shower room with professional grade water pressure, a kitchen out of Top Chef, a sitting area for reviewing all of the well-stocked guidebooks, novels, and magazines, and a comfortable bed that glimpses out over the surrounding fields. If there is a French form of Feng Shui, it is found here. While the barn itself is the Platonic ideal of “getaway spot”, the best part is one doesn’t feel compelled to get out and drive everywhere and See Things. There is so much to enjoy right there – the quiet, a cup of coffee while watching the swifts dart over the wide fields, the nighttime glow of the moon and the lights of the fancy-pants chateau visible from the bathroom, the crazy caves below the property. Of course, Saumur and Fontevraud and Chinon are so close and demand to be seen, but this is also a place just to go and be and be happy. So much of the being-happy part is provided by the hosts. The hosts are professional and genuine, friendly, helpful, and kind. They want you to enjoy yourself, to have fun, to love the place as much as they do. They are interested in people and enjoy a good visit but they also understand when their guests want more solitude. The conversation on the side porch with local wine is not to be missed however, and a dinner pow-wow in the kitchen is the bomb.

“Came for a week, stayed for two. Terrific!”

Reviewed 13 May 2012

We came for week, and stayed for two. Here’s why: 1. Location. The barn sits up on a hill with a 270 degree view for miles, is centrally located to explore the Loire Valley, pastorally peaceful, has a network of one lane rural roads to walk, and is minutes from markets, cafes, wineries, chateaus, shops, and walks through villages or along the Loire River. The food was terrific and affordable in the area. 2. So comfortable! Loved the place. Charming and well done old barn with stone walls and old beams, and well furnished: good chairs and couch, new kitchen with top of the line appliances, excellent bed, modern bath with large shower and endless hot water, and it even comes with a high end washer and dryer. 3. The owners. They are very open hearted and welcoming. In a past life they owned a well know San Francisco eatery, and know how to point their guests to everything delicious and interesting within miles. They are dedicated to this little place with it’s fruit trees, vegetable garden (they share what they grow), and nicely mowed fields. It is a place to be “at home,” and we were. And we happily stayed as long as we could, and expect we will return! Michael and Marsha Alameda, California
