I grew up in Los Angeles and arrived in france as a fashion model at the age of 21. Met my french husband and have been here ever since! After many years of being Parisien, Xavier and I haved moved permanently to our country home, Chateau de La Barbee.

Mary Pochez purchased this farmhouse in 1600

The 'Basse Cour' is one of the farms on our extensive property. It was our country home for many years until moving, grudgingly into the chateau. The house does not look like a 'rental property' but a wonderful home full of warmth and charm. And it has all the modern necessities, comforts, appliances, and internet.

The cellar has lots of frogs (we love frogs and don't eat them), the water fountain makes a very zen 'trickle' sound, perfect for reading and relaxing, extensive woods you are welcome to wander in and the Loir river for fishing or boating. The huge fireplace is wonderful if it gets chilly in the evening, big bathtub for a relaxing hot bath, home cinema and many satellite channels and dvd's. And if you should have the desire to adventure beyond this slice of paradise, there are many cultural, historical, and culinary interests in our region, that I am happy to help you organise, if you wish. I also do a cooking school in the chateau that you are welcome to sign up for lavieduchateau.com .

Le lieu a un charme fou...

Chère Mary !
Je n'ai pas de page Facebook donc je vous mets ci-dessous notre appréciation sur votre gîte.
Bonne continuation à vous.
Très cordialement.
Alice

Nous avons loué cette "ferme" avec des amis et nous étions tous ravis de notre we : le lieu a un charme fou, la maison se réchauffe à toute vitesse grâce à la grande cheminée de la salle à manger qui tire parfaitement bien et grâce au poêle du salon qui pourrait semble-t-il chauffer à lui tout seul l'ensemble des lieux. Les lits sont très confortables, le parc (avec roseraie et orangerie) est magnifique. Nous nous sommes dit qu'il faudrait revenir au printemps, pour profiter encore plus des fleurs et pour goûter à la piscine. Le charme et la gentillesse de la propriétaire a couronné le tout. Merci Mary !

Au milieu d'arbres centenaires et entourée d'un somptueux jardin se dresse la merveilleuse "La basse cour" qui a gardé toute son authenticité, son charme et son caractère d'époque. Merci à Mary de son accueil et surtout d'avoir su préserver et de faire partager cet endroit exceptionnel.
Tout est fait pour rendre le séjour agréable autour d'un barbecue dans le jardin, devant un feu de cheminée le soir ou dans la piscine la journée.

We had a truely lovely holiday at LaBasseCour. The house is full of character and the garden and grounds of the Chateau really relaxing away from the crowds.
Much to our dogs delight we had several close encounters with deer as we walked in the woods right next to the house.

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.

Owner's Response: David and Lynn, Thank you for your very nice review. I am very pleased as it is important to me that guests have an enjoyable time at the Basse Cour and keep good memories of their stay. Hope to see you again soon!
