BEAUTIFUL FRENCH FARMHOUSE WITH PRIVATE HEATED POOL & JACUZZI

Cussay Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

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

PEACEFUL SPOT IN SOUTHERN LOIRE

  • 4 of 5
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.

Owner's Response: The house is certainly for families who prefer quiet and secluded retreats. However, my representative 'Meet and Greet' lady can always give information on activities in the area locally and further afield. There is great night life in Tours which would definitely require one non drinker to drive there and back!!!

EXCELLENT FARM HOUSE IN AN AMAZING LOCATION!!!!

  • 5 of 5
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.

GREAT HOLIDAYS!!!!

  • 5 of 5
"Tourists usually divide France into two halfs and so did I, till recently when I rented 'The House du Petit Lac' : north of the Loire and south of the Loire. However because of the 'House du Petit Lac' at Cussay it became clear why so many kings of France settled along the Loire banks : the weather never is too hot nor too cold. To me from now on there's France north and south of 'The House du Petit Lac'. Moreover the domain of some 10 acres (I estimate) allows a privacy none of the classic castles ever have : it has its own pond where herons regularly come to have their diner : frogs, fish and small lizards are abundant. If nevertheless noon is too hot there's always the wood as part of the domain to go for a stroll and benefit of the natural shed of majestic trees. If you're lucky you even may witness in the evening a storm creating spectacular sceneries ideal to be caught on film. ''The House du Petit Lac' offers all comfort for a large family (up to 8 guests can easily secure their privacy) and next to the dining-room with the completely equipped kitchen, the drawing room is split in three continuous large rooms where guests can come together and relax in separate groups. Each bedroom, one downstairs and three upstairs, has its own fully equipped bathroom, linked to the bedrooms. In the garage you will find all kind of games such as the 'petanque'-set, rods, mountain-bikes, etc. etc.
Imagine that all that is located in the midst of a country side where spectacles are needed to find a neighboring farm. The silence while reading this text is nothing compared with the absolute quietness of the surrounding land. Let me confess : I and my family feel homesick whenever we talk about 'The House du Petit Lac'. It's the reason why we rented it two consecutive years. Maybe even a third time, who knows."

NICE BUT HUGE DISPARITY BETWEEN BEDROOMS

  • 3 of 5
We have recently stayed in the farmhouse as one of four couples, each with a baby under one year. I would say the house is clean and modern with the shared living space just about large enough to accommodate 8 adults and 4 babies. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for all of the four bedrooms.

Bedrooms 1 and 2 are on the first floor. Bedroom 1 is a large ensuite and very nice. Bedroom 2 is a spacious twin with its nearest bathroom being on the ground floor directly beneath it. Both bedrooms are protected from the general holiday noise of the house.

Bedroom 3 is also on the 1st floor but accessed from the other side of the house. It was of adequate size and ensuite. Being above the kitchen did however mean it was subject to any noise.

Bedroom 4 is on the ground floor and across a small landing from the kitchen. Although not ensuite its bathroom is next door. Whilst it is a double room it is frankly tiny. Approximately a fifth of the room is under the wooden stairs that lead up to bedroom 3. As well as making the room even smaller it is also very noisy whenever anyone goes upstairs (no matter how quiet they tried to be!). Rooms 3 and 4 are also not fully insulated from each other so any noise from one bedroom will travel into the other (not great with crying babies).

In summary I would not recommend this house to four couples due to the size of bedroom 4. At best the room could perhaps be used by in tandem with room 3 by one family.

If I were to suggest further improvements to the owners (excluding my comments Re. bedroom 4) it would be to get a better washing machine (one that washes clothes!) and to offer a maid cleaning service.

Overall I would recommend the house to parties of six or less. It was clean and modern and the local area was picturesque and quiet.

Owner's Response: I would like to say that all four bedrooms are large enough for a couple with three of the four bedrooms large enough to have a cot or small single bed added if necessary, but I agree it is not ideal to have four couples all with young children in one house. Bedroom 3 is actually not over the kitchen, it is over the ground floor bedroom and as the stairs are not carpeted one can hear footsteps.
The washing machine was checked and the next guests did not find a problem with the washing facilities.
We can, if requested, provide maid service and baby sitting as well.
