Terrific home base to explore the Loire valley. Short drive to both amboise and tours and other sights in the area. Delightfully unique set-up that makes for a true troglodyte cave experience, and all in the comfort of modern amenities! Use this as your base in the Loire and you …

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…

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. …

Response from 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.
