The Loire Valley region
Loire Valley home of the French kings is full of history with lots of amazing chateaux (castles) to visit - Chenonceau, Villandry, Chambord and many more. We also have mediaeval towns including Chinon, Loches, Amboise, Tours and Blois. This is an all the year round location; especially beautiful in spring and summer, but just as much on a frosty winter's day or in the height of the autumn. The location is the garden of France with fresh salads and vegetables, great restaurants for good food and also the Touraine vineyards for Gamay, Cabernet Franc, Chenin and Sauvignon wines; visit the local vineyards of Touraine, Saumur, Chinon, Bourgeuil and Vouvray; we are also only 2 hours from Sancerrre.
Locally you will shop in the village or in Montrichard or Blere as well as Tours. There are excellent markets somewhere on a daily basis. We are only 5 minutes drive from Chenonceaux and 15 minutes from Amboise. Touraine Primeur (like Beaujolais Nouveau) is the third weekend of November. Garlic and Basil festival in Tours late July. Montlouis Jazz Festival in September.

"Perfect peaceful and charming French cottage"
We were three friends from different parts of the world meeting in the Loire Valley for a vacation. Mason Doiseau was the perfect place (and would be if you were a family with children, looking for a romantic hideaway or family and friends vacation too). Ann Palmer, who is the owner, sent wonderfully detailed information about the house, directions for driving, ideas for days out, details of local markets, restaurants, wineries and more. A one woman tourist office! We could not have been happier there. The house is at the edge of a small village so is peaceful yet close enough to walk in to the boulangerie for the morning croissants. It has been tastefully decorated and has plenty of space for two couples or a couple and three children or at a squeeze even two couples and a couple of children too. All variables because of variety of beds and cots. The dining room and sitting room were very comfortable for us - and lots of indoor pursuits available and we needed these because the weather was English to the extreme. But rain could not daunt our spirits. We will definitely go for a return visit sometime and hope for sunshine so we can do all the things we had in mind - cycling through the vineyards, strolling the country roads, dining in the courtyard and enjoying all the flowers in the garden; most of which we did accomplish just in rain capes! The house is extremely well provisioned and there is tea and coffee and sugar etc left over (we replaced it all) so it was just great to arrive and be able to have that oh so necessary cup of tea on arrival. Because there are three cottages of varying sizes it would be a perfect place for a family/friend reunion as I think it could accommodate about 12 or 14 people. The garden is shared and was not a problem for us at all as the family in the adjoining house were great fun but I suppose if there was a party crowd in one house and a house with small children in another it could possibly be a slight problem but it would not put me off at all. we really loved it there - the quintessential French farmhouse but with all modern conveniences of course.Thanks to Ann for making Maison Doiseau such a lovely place and sharing what is obviously a family home with us.
Thank you for such a full and complimentary review! It is lovely in Vrigny, we go ourselves quite a lot and are so happy for our guests to enjoy our lovely cottages as much as we do. There are three cottages next door to each other and they would be great for several families / friends to come together. We are located centrally in the Loire Valley so within half an hour's drive of the main chateaux and vineyards. Our local chateau is Chenonceau just 4 minutes by car; our local viticulteur M Lacour makes great sauvignon and gamay and will willingly show you around!

"Charming, comfortable and cosy."
Owners are very obliging. Appliances are of excellent quality, well equipped kitchen. Log burning stove was splendid, warmed the whole place. Good walks, lovely countryside, excellent wines and good restaurants nearby. Especially the Bon Labourer in Chennonceaux. All in all a truly wonderful time was had by all the family.
