Perfect oasis in the French countryside
My husband and I stayed in Ciel Bleu for 12 days in late August/early September.
The property was just lovely, in a traditional French style, spotlessly clean with lots of thoughtful touches and all amenities you could possibly need including a dishwasher and access to laundry facilities. The hosts Ken and Liz are incredibly welcoming and are available if needed whilst also giving you privacy, we got some really good tips on exploring the area from them and they were quick to check that everything was okay for us. The gardens of the property are beautiful with lots of flowers and a lovely pool area which is shared by the three properties. Again, spotlessly clean and thoughtfully laid out.
Location of the cottages is just perfect if you are looking for somewhere to get away from it all but with lots of places to visit within an hours drive. The peace and calm of the rural setting was perfect for us with great walking or cycling available from the front door. Grocery shopping and dining are available less than ten minutes away and there are a multitude of picturesque small towns and villages to explore. Some of the most famous and beautiful chateau are within easy driving distance - Chenonceau, Villandry, Loches- and well worth a visit. Having a car here is a must but I would stress how easy driving around this area of France is.
All in all we had the perfect break here, so a big thank you to Liz and Ken for making it possible. I am certain we will be returning in the future.

Zwei Wochen Natur und Ruhe
Bestens ausgestattetes Ferienhaus. Alles was man für einen unbeschwerten Aufenthalt benötigt ist vorhanden. Alles ist sauber und ansprechend. Garten und Pool werden sorgfältig gepflegt. Eine kleine Oase inmitten von Getreide-, Mais-, Hirse- und Sonnenblumenfeldern. Wir können diesen Platz an alle, die im Urlaub Ruhe und Frieden suchen, nur empfehlen. Besonders hervorzuheben sind die freundlichen und hilfsbereiten Gastgeber - Liz und Ken.
Wer Abwechslung sucht, kann unzählige Schlösser, Burgen, Kirchen und romantische Dörfer besuchen und sich der Geschichte in den Museen widmen. Besonders genossen haben wir die Möglichkeit, direkt von unserem Häuschen aus lange Spaziergänge in der unbeschreiblich friedlichen Natur zu machen und danach am Pool die Seele baumeln zu lassen.
Vielen Dank, es war ein Vergnügen, Sie als Gäste zu haben und wir hoffen, dass Sie irgendwann in der Zukunft zurückkehren werden.
( if I only spoke German I would know what I have written, but many thanks to both of you)

Very pleasant, owners very helpful and friendly. Second visit but still plenty to do and see.
Top quality, very pleasant surroundings.
A perfect short break
We stayed for 4 days, and had a lovely time. Ken was a great host, informative, friendly and accommodating.
The Gite was clean, had everything we needed, and comfortable. The location was fabulous. The only noise came from birds and insects. No traffic, no planes, nothing. It was very relaxing. The Pool was clean and cared for, and the grounds were beautiful.
It may seem that it's a bit remote, but, it's actually not far from a number of towns and villages, and we found things to do every day, (mind you, one of those days was 'sit by the pool and do nothing' but that was our choice). Plenty of sights to see, walks to take, market towns to visit.
If you are thinking of going, and like your vacation spots quiet, charming and relaxing, you won't be disappointed.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review and we hope to see you both again when you need the batteries recharged.

Peaceful and relaxing
We stayed for a week at the beginning of August and, having read some reviews were expecting something special. We were not disappointed! Quietly tucked away in lovely countryside yet within easy reach of a number of interesting towns and villages. The accommodation was first class and Ken and Liz very welcoming and helpful. What made it for us was the immaculate swimming pool. We have never before seen one so well kept and clean. It was shared but most days we were the only ones using it so seemed like ours alone. It is now on our favourites list - we will return!
