An amazing holiday home.

La Basse Cour is a magical place to have as a base for exploring the Loir Valley.
As a complete opposite to previous experiences the property is a lot bigger and more impressive than the pictures in the advert would indicate. There seemed to be endless rooms for the children to explore and so much for them to do.
The house is set in the grounds of the owner's chateau and there is a real feeling of space and privacy. There is just under a 1000 acres of grounds and forest to explore should you wish!
The property has a number of gardens and the pool was immaculate as the gardener inspected and treated the pool daily as required. There is an orangery and rose garden to look at in fact there is so much to do and look at without having to get into your car. The children who were 8 and 6 loved walking down the seemingly endless drive on their own to feed Hector the donkey.
Mary the owner could not be more helpful and really helped to make our two weeks there memorable. The house has all mod cons and the master bedroom even has a grand piano and telescope in it! The house was spotless and cleaned throughout our stay. The property had real character and felt very homely.
The area has so much to see, there seems to a chateau around every corner and there are great shops and restaurants near by. The zoo at La Fleche which is 15 minutes away was fantastic and the children said it was just like the one at La Palmyre.
It is difficult to convey just how impressive the property is and the real character and charm of the house and the surrounding area. We would thoroughly recommend this property which would be suitable for both familyies and couples.
