Let us introduce ourselves – my wife Denise and I, Kevin, come from a hospitality and building background. We have run cafés, restaurants, tearooms and 5* holidays homes as well as renovating old buildings in the UK.
We decided a while ago to come to France to start our gîte and bespoke holiday business. It has taken a little longer than initially planned due to our delightful grandchildren coming along. But now in 2018 we have moved to France to fulfil this ambition.
We purchased our first house in France in 2004 and lovingly renovated it during holidays and long weekends to create a much-loved holiday home for ourselves, family and friends.
La Petite Maison is now available to all as a detached two bedroomed gîte set in half an acre of grounds just a ten minute drive from Chinon.
Having spent time in between restoring La Petite Maison, exploring and getting to know and fall in love with the Loire Valley and all it has to offer – chateaux, vineyards, the rivers and beautiful villages in 2017 we stumbled across and purchased ‘Chez Nous’ at La Voyette. Slightly more derelict than the first, we both fell in love with the location and potential it had to offer. We knew it would become the chambre d’hôte from which we could fulfil our dream of running bespoke holidays.
