A beautiful property in a lovely part of the Loire. The owners, Rosemary and Richard, were attentive hosts and couldn't have made us feel more welcome. They have created a tranquil haven; a place of peaceful relaxation. We had a wonderful stay.

Absolutely beautiful setting - a real paradise retreat in a secluded farming and vineyard area. Great base to go exploring the Loire. Very cute gite and lots of room - the enclosed BBQ area with seating was great (we picked up some great skewers of meat at the local villages). Kitchen a little small and tired, but we ate out alot or BBQ'd so not a big problem for us. Kids loved the pool and the local pets (dog, cat and pigs!). Would definitely consider returning.

Wonderful Hosts Fantastic Location !
We have just returned from a fantastic couple of weeks staying in the large Gite at The Manoir. We chose the location to celebrate my 60th Birthday with Family and from the time we arrived to when we left we were not disappointed , Rosemary and Richard Conquest were everything and more we were expecting as hosts, it was like visiting old friends. They went out of their way to provide recommendations for the best places to eat and vinyards to visit . Thank you so much both, as Arnie would say ''We'll be back... to celebrate more occasions in the future !!!''

The gite and grounds are absolutely fantastic. We were warmly welcomed by Rosemary and Richard and given as much help with navigating the local area as we needed during our stay. It was a lovely peaceful place to be and the facilities in the gite were superb. There is plenty to do locally but we enjoyed just relaxing in the lovely garden. Nice to have friendly animals to share the facilities with too!
All in all, the best family holiday that weve ever had and were looking forward to returning next year.
Thank you Rosemary and Richard for all of your care and attention!

The Gite is tremendous and Rosemary and Richard with Daisy could not have been more helpful. The area is quiet but that was just what we wanted for the children to run around safely and have a swim. A restaurant /Bar 5 minutes walk away was an excellent break for an early evening aperitif. The Tennis courts and the Pedelo the children also enjoyed.
We had a great time and so easy with Villarenters
