Les Frippieres was exactly as we had hoped it would be, Le Fleuve is a delightful, comfortable and well-equipped cottage. The garden is lovely and the pool is very good. The location is great, very quiet but within easy reach of villages, towns, excellent and reasonably priced restaurants and interesting places to visit. Ken and Liz are excellent hosts, good company, most helpful and with their exhaustive knowledge of the area and what it offers. If you are looking for a comfortable, well equipped holiday let in a beautiful and quiet location, within easy reach of villages, towns, good but reasonably priced places to eat and interesting places to visit then you need look no further, We had searched long and hard to find the sort of holiday place we wanted and Boy!! - we really did find it at Les Frippieres!!

Upon arriving, this picture perfect cottage was an absolute delightful to see. We had very enjoyable 3 night stay in mid Oct 2017, and were also lucky with lovely weather for the time of the year. Made many short trips to the local villages and great market on Loches. Also went slightly further to see some of the Chateaus and Castles that are dotted around the region, but definitely need more that 3 days to see a good selection of them. The cottage beautifully was presented and well equipped, and the hosts who live nearby, were very helpful but also respected our privacy. We look forward to enjoying another stay at La Lune!

We spent a very relaxing week . So peaceful with a feeling of being away from all the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. Not a sound of traffic! But we were only a few minutes drive from local towns and villages. This is a beautiful part of France which we had not visited before.

Ken and Liz were wonderful hosts with recommendations on places to visit and local restaurants. We loved l'Image in Preuilly sur Claise. The service was welcoming and friendly and the food delicious.  

We left feeling relaxed and renewed!

We were so pleased as soon as we arrived  as it was exactly what we were hoping for. The room was beautifully appointed, and the bed was so comfortable! The area was quiet but we still found plenty to do, and also spent some days doing nothing which was perfect! The pool was one of the main reasons we were attracted to this property, and it was lovely and clean, and great for relaxing on hot days!

Ken and Liz were lovely hosts, they made us feel very welcome and even left a few essentials in the kitchen for us to help settle in which was a really nice touch!

Thank you so much for a lovely stay!

We had a lovely week surrounded by pretty & very quiet French countryside. The gite was clean & tidy with all facilities available. Ken & Liz helped to make our week even more special by recommending lots of excellent sights & restaurants in the area. We would recommend a holiday here without hesitation.

Just returned from an amazing week at le fleuve.  Most relaxing.  The cottage is comfortable and well appointed which is most important for us as we love to cook with the local produce..  the pool was well used after a day out and about to cool down followed by a chillout on the comfy loungers.  The verandah became a fav spot to read in the evening with a glass or two. The area and local villages are beautiful.  Lunches in the towns are such good value with 3 courses for 13€ the norm.  Liz and ken made as most welcome.

We had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful part of France. Practically everything about the cottage met our hopes in terms of comfort, cleanliness, character and equipment, and the pool and garden couldn't be bettered. Ken and Liz made us feel welcome and were friendly and helpful - their welcoming gifts of wine, milk etc were most appreciated! The area is pretty and rural, and although a little far from the major chateaux if one wanted to visit lots of these, had plenty to offer in terms of pretty towns, villages, churches etc, and lots of peaceful country walks. We were also fortunate to have two weeks of gorgeous weather, not too hot, with just a little rain to make the grass green. We hope to return one day to this special corner of France.

We have just returned from our holiday to Les Frippieres, we had a wonderful time, it was so peaceful and calm, felt like a retreat. Our accomodation had everything we needed, a nice cold bottle of bubbly in the fridge, a gift from Liz and Ken the owners!! They were really helpful about everything, places to visit, eating places but only if you asked them. The pool area was lovely and I got to do my washing in the Cave-Liz had provided all the washing powder and softener, so it had to be done! It was a good position to visit lots of lovely villages in The Loire, Loches was one of our favourites. We recommend this place 100% and we will return one day for the peace and quiet that we all need from time to time Liz and Ken were the perfect hosts, we felt we had known them for a long time.

Great views, great gardens and pool.  Nice little table outside, great for your morning croissant.  A good base for exploring local villages, and within reach of chateaus like Villandry and Chenenceau.  Everything you needed was there, including some milk and provisions to get you started.  The bottle of wine was a lovely thought. Lovely and clean, shower room and kitchen area which included a dishwasher aswell!   Good to have access to a washing machine and also secure parking.  Friendly hosts.  All in all we had a wonderful time and wouldnt hesitate to go back or to recommend to friends or family. Thank you!

Lovely cottage in tiny hamlet far far away from the hustle and bustle. Well equipped, and tastefully and comfortably furnished. The owner is helpful and easygoing. We'd certainly recommend this cottage to anyone looking to spend a week in this lovely part of rural France.

This was our second stay at La Lune having enjoyed our honeymoon there in June last year. We enjoyed an Autumn holiday this time and as before enjoyed peace & tranquility, the Autumn colours in the sunshine were quite outstanding.

Ken & Liz were as always helpful, nothing being too much trouble and we enjoyed their company around the firepit on a unseasonably mild November evening.

This part of France for us, is the land where time stands still and for that reason we will return. Thanks again for a wonderful holiday. Malcolm & Debbie Eustice

Idyllic cottage in Touraine

This is probably the best gite we have stayed at in France. It is an idyllic cottage with its own gardens but sharing a pool with two other gites.  The cottage itself is roomy with a good size bedroom and living area, plenty of wardrobe space and a dressing table.  What was particularly good was a very comfortable king sized bed.

The gardens are stunning, lavender, lavatera and bougainvillea abound, masses of geraniums in pots everywhere and all beautifully maintained.  We loved the private patio behind La Lune but also the chairs at the front which were ideal for a Pimms early in the evening.

The weather was hot whilst we were there and we spent a lot of time lazing by the pool as well as visiting museums and Chateaux in the area.  Ken was very helpful when we arrived and needed guidance as to where to eat that night, he booked a table straightaway and that was a very welcome gesture at the end of a long hot drive.

The welcome pack was also notable for its generosity, ground coffee, fresh milk, biscuits and a bottle of fizz cooling in the fridge, what more could you want!

Ken and Liz were very helpful but unobtrusive hosts.  My only issue would be that when the week came to an end, we had to leave, I could have happily stayed all summer!

A little gem

We arrived a bit late on the first evening, needing a meal - Ken knew just the place, made a quick phone call and it was perfect. After a good night's sleep (not usual on holiday) in the big comfy bed we pulled back the floaty curtains to be dazzled by glorious white flowers right outside the French windows.

The weather got warmer through the week, topped by two amazing days of 30+ degrees when we lay reading in dappled shade, serenaded by the resident blackbird. Although the (heated!) pool looked very inviting we were too lazy to make use of it. There are interesting markets and places to visit - and restaurants of course; we had a bit of a gourmet experience at le Vieux Fournil.

Ken and Liz felt like instant friends and were always available when needed, but their unobtrusiveness and the layout of the garden behind La Lune gave us complete privacy. As others have said, nothing is lacking inside the cottage (lovely curtains and chairs, Liz) and our main memory is the absolute peace, the birdsong and the heavenly scents and beauty of the honeysuckle and roses in the gardens...

Recently enjoyed 5 nights in this beautiful property in the Loire.  Our cottage was much bigger that thought, with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a sunny sitting-room with a good sized dining table. Kitchen was equipped with everything you need and the hosts, Ken & Liz, are as the French say - très génial.  This is the perfect base for exploring in the Loire region and there is plenty of information in the cottage for where to eat and visit.  Could not praise the property and grounds highly enough - just wish it had been warm enough for swimming in the pool!  Definitely hoping returning in the near future.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in La Lune it is hard to translate the quietness, beauty and restorative powers of les fripperies and the Loire.  The  information in the cottages was incredibly useful for planning our time. The markets are a must each one a little different we also loved Tours and Poitier for both the architecture, food shopping and experiences they offered also.  The start of our holiday started so well with Sunday lunch at The Promenade we would say a must to all who visit. The cottage has all you could want for home away from home and we felt really relaxed and comfortable.  We intend to spread the word to family and friends.  We have no hesitation in recommending les fripperies to stay.  Liz and Ken were most helpful and friendly as others have said they perfected being unobtrusive.  Their residence and gardens are a credit to them for the huge work it takes to maintain the standards they have set. 

A RESOUNDING YESSSSS! FROM US

Le Fleuve (2 bed) was enchanting. We chose Les Frippieres to just get away and be quiet from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The pool was great source of fun and cooling down. Thoroughly recommend it. It does what it says on the can. You won't be disappointed.
