Getting around

A car is essential for this area. There is a bus service but infrequent. There is also a local taxi service but this is expensive. As our house is in town all amenities are walking distance and a car is only required for exploring the surrounding area.

Interaction with guest

I have local friends who live in Richelieu and manage my property. They welcome you with keys, at the agreed check in time, and are available to answer any questions. If a convenient check in time cannot be agreed due to time of arrival you will be given a key code to a box on the front door so that you can access the house. They also take care of my maintenance so if any 'breakdowns' they can be contacted to deal with any problem. There are two house books. One gives details of appliances/ rubbish collections etc. The other has full information of local interests. Our house is also adjacent to the Tourist Office.

“Perfect for young children”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2013

We hired this house for our family holiday with our two children five and one. I was looking for a good value holiday so was planning on camping but the thought of taking the sterilizer and baby gear I decided to investigate the cost of hiring a house and stumbled across this house. I contacted the owner about suitability of taking my now walking baby, she was great and explained what was there and what to take (like my 5 year old's bike). The house is homely and well equipped, it has a wooden cot in one of the bedrooms and I borrowed their stairgates and highchair (the house does have a lot of hard floors and steps but no different to our wooden floors at home) and best of all it has Cbeebies on digital tv and a DVD player! Richelieu is a small quiet town and the house is in the main square. We walked to the bakery each morning across the square. Took the bike to the park two minute walk where there are paths to cycle along, big open spaces to play in and a small lovely playground. A bit further along is the public swimming pool about 2 euros per person, men need speedo's! friendly even when our French speaking is lacking. In the evening went for drinks in the square and often ate in the restaurant in town all very child friendly. The tourist office is a few houses down they were helpful in suggesting places to visit and if you buy your ticket through them you can get a discount to some of the attractions. Our favourite parts were using the park, walking around the market in Richelieu bought some large garlic and some antiques! Going to Chateau du Rivau a short drive away but for the children a magical garden to explore and the zoo best one I have been to. All the family had a holiday to remember and already looking to book for next year!.

Owner's reply: I am so glad that you all enjoyed your stay and that my daughters' baby and child equipment was useful. My eldest grandchild (of 6) now 11 so this equipment,DVD's, games and books is growing rapidly!

““Lovely House Beautiful Location””

Reviewed 25 Jul 2013

We stayed in this house in July 2013, in a group of four adults, two teenagers and a dog. House was lovely and spacious, well equipped kitchen, good sized bedrooms with comfortable beds. The garden was perfect for the dog, fully enclosed and safe although did get very hot in the afternoon (as we were lucky enough to have fabulous weather). The courtyard at the front was ideal to cool down and was a perfect place to leave the dog if we went out without him, with its cool shaded area. The paddling pool was very handy in the hot weather, and the town is perfectly situated for access to Chinon and Saumur. Theres a very handy little Carrefour just round the corner and lovely places to eat and drink in the town. The nearby park is lovely for walking and cycling and there is an outdoor pool minutes away. We have stayed in a few houses in the Loire Valley over the years and would thoroughly recommend this property.

Owner's reply: I am so glad that you all enjoyed the house and Richelieu as much as we do. Thank you for taking the time to give us a review.

“Large house in good location”

Reviewed 23 Sep 2012

On the market square of Richileu so in the centre of things in this quiet and friendly town. A boulangerie and supermarket within yards. A large house with a number of floors reached by an ancient staircase. We travelled with young adult daughters who found space enough to get along. Crossing a courtyard to reach 'your' part of the house and therefore very quiet. A small garden which is not overlooked. No problem with parking even during the vintage car fete our first weekend. In a good position to reach Loire chateaux. Ate the best meal we've had in France for years and so of the holiday at Fosse St Ange, just off the square and worth the trip just for that!

“Brilliant family holiday with young children and friends”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2012

We spent 2 weeks over the May half term with our 2 young children and friends with their children (thanks for letting us all go for just a small extra charge!!). We had an excellent time, the house is great and the enclosed courtyard and garden meant we didn't need to worry about the children - even in May the back garden is a real sun trap and we had b-b-q's every night. The children loved the park with the playground, deer to feed and plenty of space to ride their bikes. We want to go back in the summer and try out the local pool just next to the park. As well as cycling around the park we went off for lots of day trips cycling in Chinon, along the Loire and the Vienne. Thanks for the info in the book - the children (and the adults) really enjoyed the day out canoeing at Chinon- it was great to be dropped off upstream and just gently paddle back. The zoo (approx 45mins away) was also a massive hit. I would highly recommend this house to families/ friends, there's loads of outdoor activities in the region and plenty of vineyards to visit when the weather isn't so good! The balance of access to all the amenities in the town in a spacious and quiet house suited us perfectly. We have already booked again for next summer.

Owner's reply: I hope you all enjoy the house again this summer -it's looking good! Many areas of the house and courtyard have been renovated and redecorated in the past three months ready for our Spring reopening!

“Lovely Holiday”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2012

We had a really enjoyable stay at this townhouse right in the centre of Richelieu. The house was very comfortable, with a lovely secluded garden close to all amenities. We had our two dogs with us and they particularly loved the walks in the beautiful local park (as did we) which was just a few minutes walk from the house. It was also great to walk out to the markets and local shops during the daytime and to the lovely restaurants in the evenings. We also travelled to the many lovely towns which are all within easy reach. When we felt tired after our travels, it was also lovely to have a meal either in the kitchen/dining room or within the very quite back garden. We fell in love with Richelieu during our stay and definitely hope to return.

“historic but very comfortable house in superb location”

Reviewed 18 Jan 2012

Have visited this 17th century yet very well equipped and comfortable house twice with extended family including teenagers and an aunt and grandmother in their eighties. The property felt like a home and all loved it and coped easily with the spiral staircase. The location in the main square in Richelieu is ideal. Restaurants bars and shops are a stone's throw away yet the thick walls mean that the secluded garden at the back of the property is totally tranquil and a perfect place to retreat with a good book , to sunbathe or simply for an afternoon snooze. The town is of great historic interest and also within easy reach of a number of chateaux - don' t miss the gardens at Villandry. The towns of Chinon and Saumur have some great shops and Tours is a fascinating city. Don't miss the Friday market in Richelieu - amazing fish, vegetables, cheeses and other local produce. Would definitely return.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your review. We are very pleased that you all enjoyed your holiday especially as originally you were concerned about it being suitable for your elderly mother and her sister. As I replied to you my own parents in their 80's love going to the house and really enjoy sitting in the square with a coffee reading their 'ordered' English newspapers! We also often have three generations at the house and all love it! I'm so glad yours had the same experience.
