5/5 Excellent

Tres bonne Premiere expérience Troglodyte; Venus en automne en famille pour quelques jours. Julie et Gregory Sont très chaleureux, le logement est très propre et joliment décoré, le jardin est superbe et la vue magnifique (orienté ouest, surplombant la Loire). Côté équipement, lits confortables, cuisine petite mais fonctionnelle et douche parfaite. A refaire

4/5 Good

Logement atypique très bien situé
Une belle découverte que ce logement troglodyte! Sa situation est très bonne, à proximité des châteaux de la Loire. Le tout à un prix très abordable. Julie la propriétaire nous a reçu de manière très chaleureuse. Seul bémol l'humidité de l'appartement mais c'est le propre des logements troglodyte. Nous recommandons l'expérience. Elsa et Marc

Super gîte !
Nous avons été très impressionnés par ce gîte très atypique. Il a été aménagé avec beaucoup de soin et de goût. Tout y est parfaitement propre, le logement comme les draps et les serviettes. La chambre troglodytique est particulièrement jolie et donne envie de s'y prélasser. Dommage pour nous, il ne faisait pas très beau et nous n'avons pu profiter ni de la petite terrasse attenant au gîte ni du beau jardin. Julie est absolument charmante. Elle a répondu très rapidement aux différents courriels que nous lui avons adressés avant notre séjour et, sur place, elle a été à notre entière disposition pour nous fournir toutes les informations dont nous avions besoin. Si l'occasion se présente nous reviendrons avec plaisir dans ce gîte.
