I'm Anna and my dearest friend is Polly. Together our two families co-own La Rue Vaslin; a beautiful arrangement of holiday gites in the heart of the Loire Valley, comprising a master three-bedroom house and three individual one-bedroom gites. Between us we have six fantastic children. Polly and Colin have three boys and I have two boys and a girl, now all grown-up. My partner, Jon, has two girls too so we're all very family-orientated. We have had so many wonderful family holidays in the Loire Valley and we continue to enjoy everything it has to offer. I work full-time in England as a marketing and communications specialist within the housing and construction sectors, and Polly is a trained chef (and an amazing chef!). We all share a passion for architecture and design, as well as for food, wine, travel and music! We laugh a lot and and consider ourselves blessed to have great friends and amazing children. I hope that if you choose to stay at one of our lovely properties at La Rue Vaslin you will love it as much as we do. I hope also that you enjoy all this wonderful area of France has to offer. Please let me know how you get on, and what we can do to make our guests' experience even better. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Anna, Polly, and families x
