We have had a great holiday here. The house has everything
and we particularly loved spending evenings on the balcony.
We enjoyed cycling locally and can recommend the 12 euro
lunch at Maire (simple French food). Troglodytes were
interesting. Local shops were great plus fresh bread and
delicious gateau from the bakery.

Brilliant time - Thank you Jim & Pauline. 'Les Balcons' was
a joy and we had a great time seeing chateaux, canoeing and
getting reacquainted with the Loire after many years away.
