It really is a lovely house in a wonderful setting. It was perfect. We cannot wait to go back.

Is the most meticulously kept Airbnb I have ever been to. If you are worried about not staying in a big city like Tours, just remember that anywhere you stay in the Loire Valley you will be driving 30-45min between Château‘s. Life in the Loire is slow. The beauty of the surroundings, towns and Casey’s cottage will leave you wanting to come back and glad you did I it!!

This really was a perfect stop off, a beautiful, clean and comfortable house. Casey and Jeffrey could not have been more helpful. First ever Air B&B for us and it was a great way to start.

nice place, don't hesitate to come!

Charmante maison idéalement située pour découvrir le zoo de Beauval à 20minutes. Sa propriétaire, Casey, a été parfaite : pain fait maison, eau fraîche et bouquet de fleurs nous attendaient pour notre arrivée. La maison est spacieuse pour une famille de 4, chacun y a trouvé son espace. Elle est très bien équipée et décorée avec goût. Les photos sont conformes. Nous avons pu profiter de l'extérieur, agréable avec les chevaux comme compagnie. Une parenthèse au calme que nous recommandons vivement !

Maison magnifique, parfaitement entretenue, au calme dans la campagne. Excellent accueil de nos hôtes, très attentionnés.

Casey and her husband Jeffrey are awesome hosts! The cottage is even better than on the pictures, super cosy, premium decoration. It is well adapted to families with toddlers and Casey provided baby equipment such as high chair and safety fence for the stairs. The countryside around the house is gorgeous and the location is perfect to visit Beauval Zoo-Park and Loire Castles. We will recommend Casey & Jeffrey's cottage 100% to our family and friends.
