We are lucky enough to have guests staying at 'Les Balcons' from Canada, normally as part of a larger trip that usually includes Paris. Not keen on driving from Paris? talk to us about alternatives.

This vacation in the Loire Valley has been the perfect seguay into retirement. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, visiting historic landmarks, towns and exploring sleepy villages. There has always been something to see and do and our memories are in our pictures.

Jim and Pauline, what can we say?? You did more than just rent the accommodation. You provided so much more than information and support, you provided friendship and hospitality. Thank you so much for the wonderful dinners and outings...we will miss you!

Until next time 'au revoir'

Dear Jim & Pauline,

This trip was truly a dream come true - in 5 days we got to see the beauty of the Val de Loire thanks to all your great suggestions! The beauty here is beyond belief and a photographer's delight. Thanks for making our first visit to the Loire extremely  comfortable and memorable!!

'Les Balcons' was a home away from home!! You are great hosts and a fantastic team-in fact we are going to call you the 'Dream Team'

During our two weeks we saw everything ( well almost ) in a car made easily rentable by Jim & Pauline, chateaux, abbeys and the city of Tours ( easily, inexpensively and comfortably reached by local bus - 1.70 euro each way! ) Do visit 'Grand Ma's', the patisserie and the 'Prehisto' cafe in the village. We would then return to 'Les Balcons' its comfort convenience and charm - merci beaucoup Jim & Pauline

Via email:  We have arrived safely in Toronto after a lovely day in Paris cramming as much as possible into our short stay there. But the highlight of the trip was our wonderful stay at "Les Balcons". I thank you both for making our visit with you so comfortable and enjoyable. You are superb hosts.

I wish you all the best; you deserve it!

Thanks you again.
