We wanted to send our thanks for being so hospitable when we stayed at “Le Clos de Ligré” on 2nd and 13th August.

Bon Jour,
We wanted to thank you again for all the help and fine hospitality you gave Mary Sr, Mary Jr and me during your recent stay.
The rooms and surroundings were great, our bike ride wonderful and your dinner and breakfasts fantastic.
Your help in securing transportation and hotel connections for us –as well as finding Tour de France routes- saved the day. Without it, we would probably still be looking for the train station in Tours.
Rest assured we will heartily recommend you house to the many people we’ll be telling about our trip to France
Best regards
