Guestbook comments from the owner
We booked on-line (couldn’t have been easier) but when we got there the gite itself was far more luxurious than you could see on the pictures – it will come highly recommended to family and friends back home

The immediate area around Les Petites Cigognes offers a wide range of activities with excellent horse riding being available within 2 km and delightful cycling opportunities around quiet,local lanes.

Descartes was the home of the philosopher René Descartes and has a museum dedicated to his work whilst its superb leisure facilities provide opportunities for tennis, canoeing, fishing as well as other activities. Descartes also has an excellent Sunday market, wine shop and restaurants.

The Touraine region includes a wide variety of superp vineyards, with Chinon, Bourgueil, Vouvray and Saumur all within easy driving distance. Personal visits can arranged to a number of vineyards

Other places to visit include the superb zoo at Beauval, the zoological park at La Haute Touche, Futuroscope at Poitiers, troglodyte caves at St Remy and the Fantasy Forest adventure park near Chaumont.

We highly recommend the Brenne Regional Park. This area of 1000 lakes is superb for cycling, water-sports, walking, bird-watching and anyone interested in nature. At one of its large lakes, Etang de Bellebouche, there is a wonderful beach and opportunities for many watersports.

The Loire Valley is known as the Garden of France and the Cradle of the French Language. It is also renowned for the quality of its architectural heritage and since the year 2000, the central part of the Loire River valley has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This recognises its historic towns such as Amboise, Chinon and Tours as well as the smaller towns such as Descartes, Loches and Richelieu. The region is also well known for its châteaux, such as the renowned chateaux at Chenonceau, Chambord, Ussé, Azay le Rideau, Villandry and Chaumont. Others we recommend include Montresor, Loches, Chinon, Rivau and Cheverny. Villandry and Chaumont are well known for their beautiful gardens. All are within easy reach of Les Petites Cigognes.

Les Petites Cigognes is a superb base for birdwatching, with many species being seen and heard directly on site or within walking distance, including Montagu's Harrier, Black Redstart, Golden Oriole and Melodious Warbler.
