    Wonderful Holiday home

    We had a beautiful holiday at "The Squirrels", a private, peaceful residence. The owners are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable; we found their restaurant recommendations particularly helpful. The home itself is very comfortable and well appointed. We were a family of 3 adults and 2 children. We travelled with a relative with mobility issues; the ground floor master bedroom with king size bed and en suite shower room was perfect for her. The second toilet is on the ground floor, separated from an upstairs bedroom by a large wooden staircase so it may be difficult to access at night for younger children who sleep in that room. The two bedrooms at the top of the "floating" staircase are separated by an en suite shower room. A word of caution if you are tall; the second floor master bedroom (see photo with brown wall matting head board) was the double bed. Perhaps if you notify your hosts in advance, the bed can be swapped with the twins in the "green locker" room, for a more comfortable sleep. A dip in the pool was a perfect way to end a day of sight-seeing. We would highly recommend staying here.

    The Squirrels September 2019

    The Squirrels is in an ideal location for visiting Chateaus and Loire winerys. The house easily met our expectations in terms of space and facilities. Its location in small rural village, just outside of Azay, is perfect for those looking for a peaceful base. The weather during our early September stay reached 30, making the swimming pool a welcome addition. For our party of 4 adults,he house was well serviced and spacious with all the fcailities we needed. The hosts were friendly & approcahable and on the plus side spoke English. In summary this is an excellent property in and excellent location with excellent hosts

    Manque de propreté pour un ménage très cher et équipement à rénové

    Bien que la maison soit joli et au calme pas mal d’équipements sont à remplacer ou à rénover; chaises manquantes à l’extérieur, matelas et vaisselle en mauvais état. Mais ce qui m’a frappé et choqué et le pourquoi de mon commentaire c’est le ménage. Il n’a pas du tout été fait en profondeur , vaisselle encore avec résidu de nourriture ( en période covid merci ) , bonbons dans des tasses ou paillette , poussière , toile d’araignée , cheveux dans le bac de douche,... je l’ai donc signalé à la propriétaire car on peut parfois sans le vouloir oublier des choses dans la précipitation d’une nouvelle arrivée et lors de mon départ j’ai donc demandé qu’une partie du ménage me soit remboursé mais on m’a donné un non catégorique ce que je ne trouve pas correcte et pas commerciale du tout . Pendant 3 jours des souris m’ont ennuyé pendant la nuit et je ne lui en ai pas tenu rigueur car ce sont des choses qui arrivent. Mais quand on demande autant pour un ménage , pour ma part cela doit être parfait .
