About us

The aim of this page is to tell you a bit about ourselves and how we came to hospitality and our philosophy about hospitality


I am native of this region, and settled in Cour-Cheverny many years ago with my husband Bruno. In fact, we moved back to the place of our childhood and youth, after having spent most of our careers in the Paris area.

 We have kept many friends here in Cheverny and the Loir-et-Cher area, and we are both very attached to this land, our countryside and the Sologne forests.

How could we not be? The Loire Valley is magical !

As a retired flight attendant, I still enjoy contact with people, and the art of welcoming them with fine service. I am deputy at the Cour-Cheverny's  town hall council since 2014.

We have five children, who are now adults, settled all over France.

My husband, Bruno, is also retired, a former senior business executive.

Our two cottages and our 7 golden rules about hospitality

We are committed with your satisfaction !

Our constant goal is to serve you in the best possible manner.

As clients ourselves, we know how a disappointing rental can ruin your holiday; we do not want this to happen to you at l'Epinglerie.

This is why we have set 7 golden rules of quality for running a gite worthy of Cheverny .









Provide all the necessary and precise information from the start and answer all your questions. 


Honour our contractual commitments. This is a lesson learnt from our professional careers, in industry for my husband and in civil aviation for me.


Offer excellent quality at a reasonable price. We strive to make this a reality. We know that there is considerable competition!


 Focus on impeccable cleanliness.

To give an example, we quickly understood that we would only be able to achieve this target if we managed and provided the bed linen.


Maintain the French classification level of at least three stars.


Take into account all your feedback and requests.



Always strive to do better.

We wish to improve what we do continuously; this motivates us!








Be assured that we will do everything we can to welcome you in the best possible conditions. Feel free to contact us, preferably by e-mail, and we will reply to each question with personalised attention. We are looking forward to seeing you in the Gites de l'Epinglerie! Very sincerely,


Véronique et Bruno LANCESSEUR
