We had a terrific stay here. The location is superb for getting around the area. The facilities were just as expected and we all relaxed after seeing sights and wine tasting.

It is really a most amazing Place. We were a big Family of 14 celebrating an anniversary. We could not have found a better Place to do it.
The first thing that strikes you is that it is so quiet. The surroundings are just spectacular and you can sit just for hours in quiet conversation or just listening to the nature. Stephanie and David are the Perfect hosts. Always available, always forthcoming and doing absolutely everything to make the stay good for us. Needless to say the Loire Valley is full of sights, Nice villages and spectacular Castles. So much to see and so much to do, if you don't just want to sit there and do nothing, enjoy the nice pool or play football With the kids on the lawn.
I would recommend this Place to anyone looking for a Family Getaway or a big Place to spend a week or two With friends.

Dear Stephanie and David
thanks you so much for giving us the opportunity to stay here. The weather was gorgeous and it gave us a chance to swim in your fabulous pool. We had a great time using your tennis court and pingpong table. This is also the perfect location on a map as it is near all of the châteaux which we were lucky enough to see. Thank you so much for the kindness that you showed toward us and we would love to come and stay again.

A wonderful stay spent in the perfect location. Stéphanie and David are the perfect hosts ; friendly and hospitable. The accomodation is perfectly appointed and the experience of drinking cold local cremant around the swimming pool was …. Magnifique ! With the proximity of the Loir et Cher Chateaux, the history and culture of this area so close to our tranquil base. This has to be a perfect holiday experience. Merci beaucoup ! C’était calme, tranquille, intéressant, dans tous les aspects …. Parfait !

We have had a wonderful holiday here, even the changeable weather did not detrack from the beautiful surroundings and relaxing and peaceful setting. Thank you for being attentive hosts ; we have really enjoyed precious family time and lost of laughter and fun. Thank you for suggesting that we try la « botte d’asperges in Contres » - the owners and food are superb. Thank you too for buying the table tennis table, we have certainly made plenty of use of it. It is so lovely to find a gite with such a well equipped kitchen and we have certainly enjoyed wonderful family meals. We wish you and your family the best.

September 2009, (Lynne and David Levin, Owners of the Capitol Hotel, London).
This was our second visit to gite des orfeuilles. We adore the peace and tranquility in such natural spot. The facilities of the gite are excellent. On some days we had our children and grandchildren visit from London and it was perfect for entertaining the whole family. the children loved the pool and the freedom to explore the forest, and play. There is so much to do in the area: the chateaux are magnificent, the market days in the villages are wonderful and we play golf at Cheverny. What is very special is to visit the charcuterie in Montrichard, the boulangerie in Bourre and prepare a simple dejeuner in the lovely surrounds of the gite!! After our busy life in London it is the perfect way to relax and recharge our batteries! We will return again next year and look forward to recharging our batteries.
June 2009, (Graham – England).
It has been a holiday of 2 parts. First we had grey skies, cloud a rain with thunder and lightning for good measure! Then part 2 – the sun appeared and we had blue sky and lovely hot temperatures. We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday here in this beautiful gite. Stephanie and David have been perfect hosts. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful setting to cater for the needs of our party of 8 good friends. We‘ve had plenty of wine, food, chateaux, fun and laughter. Thank you again Stephanie and David.
