|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
The house is a beautiful old farmhouse that has been lovingly upgraded to provide comfortable accommodation with all the conveniences of modern living whilst still maintaining the rural integrity of the building and its extensive surroundings. The house has four double bedrooms and can sleep up to 8 people.
Set in the Loire Valley, one hour south of Tours, in the tranquillity of the French countryside this escape from the hectic pace of modern life is surrounded by picturesque and peaceful landscape. Nearby in the local towns there are wonderful boulangeries and patisseries ready to make your mouth water with the smells and tastes of freshly cooked breads and treats. Local Châteaux and sites of historical interest remind you of the opulent and ornate civilisation that France was created from. And of course local bars and vineyards scattered throughout the region are home to some of the finest selection of wines in the world.
On arrival you will be met by my 'meet and greet' lady who speaks fluent French. There is a welcome basket and all the beds will be made up and towels for both bathrooms and pool are included.
There are golf courses within 30mins drive from the farmhouse
This was just perfect for our two families. Lots of space, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, gorgeous surroundings, perfect pool and hot tub too! It was well situated to explore the local area, the weather wasn't great the week we were there so the DVD player was a godsend on a chilly afternoon. The owner was very friendly and excellent with communication. We will be going back! In fact as I am writing this my daughter (2 and 3 months) is screeching "Holiday house! Let's go back!" The house is perfect for two families as there are two sides to the house with two bedrooms at each end. Plenty of extra space and 4 bathrooms which meant there was never a queue. The house is not overlooked at all. Very nice boulangeries and supermarkets within 5 min drive. We were only ashamed of the amount of empty wine bottles we left behind! Sitting out on the terrace or in the hot tub with a glass of cold white wine was a bit addictive. This is the perfect place to relax and unwind. It would also be a lovely place for colder times of year with a wonderful fire to toast your toes. It is about 4.5 hours from Cherbourg.
This is a lovely country home with easy access to local villages and chateaux throughout the Loire valley if that is what you want. Alternatively it is a great property with all the toys you could wish for including pool and hot tub if your wish is just to stay put and relax.
Unusually there is a good local Sunday market which makes a late Saturday arrival stress free, no worries about supermarket closures.
Good tourist information available at the property supported by a lovely meet and greet manager who is a mine of information.
You cannot fail to enjoy.
Beautiful property in wonderful surroundings. Quality throughout and the highest standards. Relaxed from the moment we arrived, it was all we could wish for and more. A wonderful special family holiday. The" meet and greet" lady was perfect.
The owner provided first class customer service, in fact she was very friendly and easy going.
The information book at the property was excellent , full of great information: and spot on.
Look forward to returning when the occasion arises.
And have already recommended the property to friends .We give it " A star"
This farmhouse is perferct for people, who wants to relax without neighbours. It is really a quit spot and it was perfect for our children. The kitchen is well equiped and also some stuff for rainy days is there. Supermarkets are about 10 km from the locations and we the most loire castles beetwenn 40 and 90 minutes driving time. We really enjoyed the quitness and used the BBQ and the jacuzzi almost every evening
We had a very relaxed time here. The children loved the pool and we all loved the hot tub! The house is lovely with spacious rooms, high ceilings etc, and all well equipped (we're quite particular about that stuff!).
It was incredibly quiet so if you want a rural retreat, this is spot on! No light pollution at all - we sat out most evenings watching the stars.
For us perhaps it was a little too quiet. The local villages are more or less dormant (except for Descartes on a Sunday morning when the market is really good), and we had to drive a lot to get to places with more going on.
Just returned from holiday at this wonderful house and had an amazing time.
The pictures do not do it justice. The house was bigger and much more luxurious than it looks in the photos.
The pool was incredible, set on a raised sun terrace surround by nothing but fields and trees and large enough for all 9 of us. Sitting in the hot tub watching the sun set was brilliant.
The house itself was spacious, spotlessly clean and very well presented. The previous reviewer commented on the 4th bedroom being smaller than the rest. This is true but it is more than adequate for a week/2 week holiday and how much time would you spend in the bedroom when you have such a lovely house/garden/pool area.
The grounds were huge, we spent lots of time out in the gardens playing bowls and frisbee. Eating alfresco with the BBQ was another highlight of our stay.
We would thoroughly recommend this house to large families, groups of families and groups of friends it has something for everyone. We would definitely return.
