We stayed for 1 1/2 weeks with two dogs. The garden is secure which makes life easy. The house is in a good location to explore the area, near Ferte-Saint Cyr, Chambord, Beaugency and Blois and all you need to is turn right outside the house and you’re into a number of forest walks. The pool is well looked after and the garden has a number of sunny spots to relax in. The bistro in Ferte-Saint Cyr is great. The nearby Lac de la Loire near Blois is a great place to park for a walk along the Loire shore, particularly if your dogs enjoy swimming. The house is rustic in design, has good facilities and is good value.
