An ideal spot in France to spend a relaxing week in the sun. The surrounding areas are beautiful and all the advice we received from Janet ensured that we made the most of our week. La Promenade in Petit Pressigny was fantastic and Suzy la masseuse is to be highly recommended. Thank you for your help in making reservations and booking Suzy.

A great welcome from Janet with lots of information about what to do locally. High quality accommodation in a very quiet restful place. Wifi worked well so great for our older children (16 +23) And they also liked the gym! Travelled to Amboise and Chateau Charmant as well as Loches and Descartes museum. Weather great as well so all in all a lovely visit. Hope to come back!

A fantastic week. Beautiful weather and peace and tranquility. Just what we aere after! Sunny evenings, BBQ, and plenty of wine! The children (9 and 11) loved market day in Loche and the Donjon. Their favourite place was the swimming pools in Descartes where we spent three amazing aftrnoons – one day with 5 pools to ourselves! We all feel fully recharged – if a little heavier!

Another great stay in the Arches! We discovered Chateau du Pray in Chargé near Amboise – an amazing Michelin Star restaurant! Would highly recommend staying at les Arches and hope to return soon!

We have had a wonderful ten days in accommodation that perfectly met our needs. A secure garden (+ child gates) were perfect for our dog and the house had all that was needed for a beautiful stay:- bbq, washing machine, strong Wifi, satellite, gym etc. and the location was perfect. Rural peace but short drives to towns like Loches and Chinon. Thank you to you, Janet and Stephen for making us feel very welcomed. Also for being on hand for our questions, but giving us the space for a lazy, wine glass filled holiday!

Thank you so much for a wonderfully relaxing holiday. The gite was homely, very quiet and spacious in an incredibly peaceful farmland setting. The weather was perfect with hospitality to match. Ivi is fantastic and thanks so much for letting Lara pester your lovely dogs! We hope to be back!

We have spent a wonderful week here in The Two Arches. This area is full of places of interest: Da Vinci Museum in Amboise, the old town of Tours, Futuroscope and more and more. We highly recommend Angles su Anglain – a beautiful village. The highlight of the week was the bird show in Zoo Parc BEAUVAL – not to be missed. L’accueil de Janet fût très chaleureux – une aide très précieuse pour choisir nos sites à visiter.

A really wonderful stay in Angel’s Arch. Such a lovely gite. Warm, welcoming relaxing and modern. We loved the area, our first time in rural France and it did not disappoint. Thank you so much for all your recommendations, they were fabulous. And thank you for making us and our dog so very welcome.

Our first visit to the Loire Valley, we were extremely lucky to fall upon such perfect accommodation. Very many thanks to Janet and Stephen for making the holiday so memorable. Janet was helpful recommending places to go + managed to sort out a dental emergency for us. We particularly enjoyed our visits to the gardens at Villandry, the superb Chateau of Chinonceau, the DaVinci museum at Amboise and of course the unbreathable French cuisine. Many, many thanks

We have been coming back to this house every year for the last three years – we positively love the place – the house, the area and the hospitality!

We can’t speak too highly of the Gite and the helpfulness of Janet and Stephen. As above this was the first French holiday to our labradoodle CASSI and everywhere we went she was welcomed. Walks in the area are delightful and the trips to the Loire need no recommendations – Chinonceau, Tours, Losches market on Wednedsday is a must. Janet’s recommendations for restaurants are all solid. We’ll absolutely come back.
— Chris & Gretta, Tiny Booey and Cassi the labradoodle from UK June 2015
Lovely Gite in stunning surroundings. Great first holiday overseas for Stanly (our Springer Spaniel), such a dog friendly part of the world. Highlights – Domaine de la Noblaie vineyard in Chinon and La Promenade restaurant (as recommended by Janet). Fab break – next time we need 2 weeks!
— Kat, Terry, Johan, Rach + Stanley from UK May 2015
“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rainbow Arch – thank you. The gite is absolutely gorgeous and has everything we needed. We made good use of the BBQ and the garden in the evenings. The location was perfect for trips to Tours, Amboise, Loches as well as numerous vineyard visits and chateaux sightings. Particular thanks to Janet for the good advice on places to visit. ”
— Simon & Jackie from UK September 2014
“The location is central to all we wanted to see and the gite has everything you could possibly want. We enjoyed the peace and tranquillity of Les Arches and especially your patio and the BBQ. After many restaurant meals it was nice to relax and enjoy our own cooking. It is a beautiful setting and you can discover something scenic around every bend in the road!”
— Heddon & Harrisons from Canada September 2014
“A lovely relaxing time. Rainbow Arch is a super place to stay and a wonderful calm atmosphere. The whole gite is cleverly arranged and most thoughtfully furnished.
We went to Loches and ate at ‘La Lanterne’ (closed on Monday). Very nice. The Simply supermarket in Ligueil has a good butcher’s counter and everything you need. We enjoyed pleasant walks nearby; this place has all you want for a good holiday. Many thanks “
