Thank you so much for the wonderful hospitality you all showed us.  The Saule cottage was perfect for the five of us, so comfortable & clean.  It was nice to relax after 4 days in Paris.  So much so that we didn't visit all the castles on my list :o)  Instead we enjoyed biking into le Grand Pressigny, swimming in the river, visiting Loches (we all really enjoyed the medieval castle) and catching up on our sleep.  None of us want to leave, we will definitely recommend les Limornieres & the Loire Valley countryside to others!  Saule July 2011

We had a wonderful time at les Limornieres.  The surroundings are beautiful, from the interior of the cottage, to all the special touches in and around the fantastic gardens.  Highlights for us: welcome snack on arrival, horse riding in Etableau, visiting Chenonceau, fresh goats cheese from farm up the road - bliss!, Lazily reading/snoozing in the courtyard, while the kids play in the garden just far enough away to ensure everyone is happy!

What else can we say but merci beaucoup! We have had the best time at les Limornieres.  Congratulations on finding such a beautiful place & creating a wonderful holiday/french rural experience/home away from home.  We wish we could bring all the family here one day...And if you ever are in Oz we hope we can return some of your hospitality. We hope the chooks & Flop the rabbit don't miss our attempts to spoil them too much.  Thank you for the welcoming treats when we arrived so late & for all the strawberries, herbs & offerings from the garden...a bientot - we hope one day & merci bien encore!  Noix May 2012

Barbara, Sylvain, Paul & Madeleine Charra - Massy, France
Thank-you once again for such a warm welcome & two years running!  We have had a great short stay, not really needing to leave the gite with the children happy both indoors & in the garden at les Limornieres.  Thank you too for the gardening tips, we'll let you know!  Look forward to seeing you again soon. Noix May 2012

Thank-you A & N for your hospitality & generosity while we stayed at les Limornieres.  We have had an absolutely wonderful time here.  The kids have enjoyed visiting the chickens & rabbit each day!  Daily visits to both local & distant places have always ended in a warming return to our accommodation...we will be recommending Les Limornieres to fellow travellers.  Best wishes.

Julie, Bill & E Tripp 
We have had a lovely week at les Limornieres. Our 18 month old daughter has had a fantastic time running around the garden, playing in the covered outbuilding & with all the toys that have been thoughtfully scattered throughout the house & grounds.  Zoo Beauval is a MUST if you have kids, we had a great day there.  We are sad to go but hope to visit again someday. A bientot! Chene March 2012

Lyn & Ron McCullough, NSW Australia
We arrived for a couple of nights at Les Limornieres & stayed two weeks!  Thanks for all the hospitality, we felt really comfortable here and enjoyed being able to experience french village life.

Favourite things we the bike riding around the lanes & local villages.  The chateau-musee in le Grand Pressigny was spectacular.  We loved Loches, Chinon & Azay-le-Rideau & enjoyed the L'Art et Lard festival in le Petit Pressigny and of course the wonderful meal at La Promenade, that was a real treat. 

We loved everything about the Saule cottage. Thank you & we hope to return soon!

Jason & Jenny, Brighton, England
Thank you for your hospitality in your beautiful home. We felt a little isolated at first but then fell in love with the place.  Wonderful to sit out at night & watch the sky come alive with the flutter of bats and the ghostly arrival of the barn owl doing her rounds.  A paradise for bird watching: barn owl, little owl, greater spotted woodpecker, black redstart, family of red-legged partridge, wagtail, swallows galore, goldfinch, buzzard, kestrel....Great hosts & a memorable visit. Noix July 2011

Thank you so much for your generosity & hospitality.  Les Limornieres has provided the perfect indulgent do-nothing vacation.  Although, I can't wait to come back & see more of the lovely Loire Valley next time! Saule July 2011

We are so glad we discovered this little gem of a place!  After a crazy week of travel & cities with our toddler in tow this place is the reason we are still sane!  It is just perfect - friendly hosts and a beautiful countryside setting.  We look forward to returning one day with our expanded brood!  Chêne July 2011

What a wonderful 'retreat'!  Our stay here been everything we had hoped for and more.  Everything about les Limornières is perfect, from the initial welcome (including much appreciated snack) onwards.  We loved the use of bikes, all the childrens equipment, having BBQs in the evening, the surrounding countryside, le Grand Pressigny etc. etc.  We will do our best to spread the word and more importantly to return ourselves.  Saule July 2011
