The home is just as described but the photos do not do the space any justice as in our opinion it was much better in reality! Well furnished, clean and comfortable. Erica and her two dogs were fantastic hosts for us, with plenty of personal touches to make us feel at home. Erica …

This rental was truly unique, and makes a great base for exploring the Loire Valley. I can now cross off "live in a cave" from my bucket list. Vouvray was a lovely small town, Erica was friendly and had lots of great suggestions for how to spend our time in the area, and her ha…

La maison est très belle et l'hôte avait bien préparé notre arrivée. Malheureusement, des le debut nous nous sommes sentis très jugés et avons essuyé des commentaires negatifs sur nos enfants (1 an et 3 ans). L'hote epiait nos faits et gestes, intervenant en permanence. Ce sejour…

Lila and her husband were consumed with finding Internet signal - despite the fact that my description explicity indicates in several ways in many places it does not exist in the rental unit in my cave home. I made the mistake of trying to assist the husband by giving him my Livebox (personal wifi) code. Three year olds *will get your attention*, and if they can’t get it in positive ways, they will get it in negative ways. Lila’s three year old – who was unusually tall and physically well developed for his age (I thought he was five or six at first) behaved exactly like all three year olds who want their parents’ attention and can’t get it because the parents are ignoring him in favour of their own narcissistic needs. This couple was obsessed with their I-Phones. So, their son did exactly what all 3-year olds do to attract his parents' attention: he did things he’d been told not to do, that were perilous, and created a situation which would get the attention of any available adult. His personal solution was to climb on the wire fencing beyond which there is a significant drop down the cliffside. He thus put himself – and thereby me and my property – in danger. Had he been injured, he would have placed both me and my property in peril in ways I do not care to contemplate. His parents, Lila and her husband, reminded me of a pair of inebriates wandering around the deck of a cruise ship. I came home from walking my dogs to find Lila sitting in my private area, and scanning the property for signal. I asked her please go to the Office du Tourisme. Besides having no respect for my personal space, this couple were entirely irresponsible about the fact they had booked a cave lodging on the side of a cliff with a young child who was too young to know how to act safely in the environment his parents had placed him in. They did not bother to guide him – Lila told me she had a ‘liberal’ attitude about child rearing. Her child, she said, had never been hurt. It simply seemed not to grok for them that renting my gite would add to their responsibilities as parents. No child of mine would have been left to his own devices in this situation. I enjoy having children and their parents as guests. There have been 7 children who have stayed here so far this year, for varying lengths of time, from two nights up to a week. The kids ranged in age from 11 months to 11 years. All were great. Their parents were great, and responsibly took care to supervise their children in what is for most children an unusual, new and mysterious setting: a cave home 2/3 way up a rock cliff. Lila and her husband were notable exceptions. I do not enjoy and do not welcome I-Phone obsessed or otherwise self-absorbed parents who ignore their children in ways that create a liability for me. Parents like Lila and her husband have no place here. Responsible parents who are savvy about their kids and their needs - and have an inkling about what kind of liability issues may face me if something happens to their child - are welcome.

Erika's place is a troglodyte house which is been very well renovated and has all the modern comfort you can expect while retaining the charm of an "old cave". The place is well located, close from the Village and from the Loire river . The nights are very quiet and the troglodyt…

Cecile's group left the gite in immaculate condition so there was very little I needed to do when they left. They even stripped the beds! A charming family, welcome any time here at my home. Safe travels! Erica

Nicely done cave house. Very comfortable bed and nice bathroom. Lovely view. Enjoyed the morning with tea/coffee with our host. If you are much over 6' you will feel a bit cramped if you're staying for long. This is a cave so there are some cave smells (musty) but not bad. …

Resposta de Erica:
Keela and her son were very good guests. I have remedied the 'mustiness' factor by placing a dehumidifier in permanent residence in the large bathroom/dressing/shower area. I invite guests who are bothered by the slight whirring noise it emits to shut it off when they are settling down for the evening. Those who are very tall or have claustrophobia, please be mindful of the setting before you decide to book in here. The rental is a cave home. It might not be the right holiday rental for you.

Beatiful place in a great location close to several vineyards. The limestone walls add a unique touch and Erica was a great host. Very pleased.
