House Rules

Please, no smoking inside the house, and no cigarette butts outside.
There is a fireplace inside and a firepit outside for evening fireside meals and socializing-- please be careful.
No shoes upstairs please (it's carpeted).
Our cat, Pasha, is mostly outside.

Please be careful about turning lights off, and not putting hot pans/coffee pot on the table or counters without a tile beneath.
Please be careful with the fireplace. It's fine to use it. There's plenty of wood. Don't make big fires please, and be sure to use the screen.
The barn is beautiful, but off limits for more than a quick look, as we are renovating it.
Pommereau is a very solid medieval building, and after 600 years of Cistercian monks and 200 years of farmers, has now benefited from 25 years of both contemplative retreats, friends gathering, and family vacations.
We hope the special atmosphere will bring you tranquility, rest, inspiration and energetic replenishment!

David could not have been a better host. He was so helpful with things to do in the area and made us feel incredibly welcome. His home was paradise for our kids and they had a fantastic time. We'll be back!

Enchanting place! We spent 5 days at the Pommereau with our 2 small kids , the property is quite a magical place and the location is ideal to explore the Loire valley castles. We loved spending relaxing evenings listening to music and looking after the fire. David was a great host, and we enjoy his company very much. A gem of a place, highly reccomended.

David's house is very comfortable and is a fantastic place to relax. We loved the warm spirit that emanates from the living room in particular, not to mention the overall settings, surrounded by tranquil woods. David is a great host too, although we unfortunately did not get a chance to meet in person. We definitely want to come back!

I did not meet David in person because he was overseas when we rented his lovely place, but he was really wonderful to communicate with over the phone and email. Also we met some of his friends and neighbours in the local area and they were exceptionally friendly and caring and nice to be around. David's house is very spacious with room for many guests. There were just three of us - myself, my husband and my baby daughter. Even though there were several bedrooms we didn't need, the house is designed in such a way that it still felt cosy and not too large for the three of us. The living area is wonderful with a big fireplace and a grand piano! The kitchen is well equipped and the bath is nice to soak in under the skylight in winter. The house is very isolated, it feels like a real retreat from the crazy world of Paris which is where we had come from that day. It is amazingly quiet and peaceful and there is a nice energy in the house. The property feels like a rustic farmhouse rather than a fancy renovated villa, so it is great for someone relaxed who likes that kind of cosy comfy place. I would not recommend this place to someone looking for a manicured and fancy villa or for someone without a car or someone looking for excitement. This is a place to relax and do very little, a place to meditate and play music. A place for people who do not want newly renovated stuck up interior design but who prefer a cosy warm family home. It is a special place. I hope to return with family and friends in the future.

J'ai réservé le Gîte de Pommereau dans le cadre des 30 ans de ma compagne. Dès les premiers échanges de mails, j'ai senti toute l'attention et l'écoute de David et sa compagne, toujours prêts à répondre à mes nombreuses sollicitations. Ils ont vraiment veillé à ce qu'il ne nous manque de rien et ont assurément contribué à faire de ce week-end un évènement mémorable. Le gîte en lui-même est sublime et rend bien mieux que sur les photos. Il est un peu excentré du village ce qui renforce le sentiment de plénitude et de calme. A notre arrivée, les lits étaient faits, chacun avait une serviette de bain, nous n'avions plus qu'à installer le barbecue, le molkky et les divers jeux apportés. La grande capacité de couchages a permis à chacune et chacun d'avoir un bon lit. Il se dégage un je-ne-sais quoi à Pommereau qui donne envie d'y rester bien plus que prévu. Nous songeons déjà de notre côté à y retourner! Je recommande à 200%! Un grand merci à David et sa compagne
