SPACIOUS,CHARMING STONE FARMHOUSE WITH MODERN AMENITIES AND POOL IN LOIRE VALLEY

Clere-du-Bois House Rental Photos and Description

A magic peacefull place, built in 1830, Center of France, sleeps up to 15

This large, peaceful country house is perfect for people of all ages and well-suited for families, friends, and groups of up to 15 people. It is an ideal place for vacations, reunions, weddings, anniversaries, and other special occasions, and whenever you need time to relax and rejuvenate. 3 hours from Paris, 1 hour from Tours, 25 mn from Loches. The house is very spacious, perfect for a group, but large enough to allow guests their own quiet space. The house is located on a very large acreage, surrounded by lawns and clusters of pine and fruit trees, a forested area around the perimeter of the property, and even a small, natural creek and pond. Lovingly updated and restored by the artist-owner, this traditional, two-story, stone farmhouse contains a unique blend of old and new including:

On the Ground Floor:

A large living room with comfortable seating and a fireplace. The fireplace is a perfect place to gather around in on cool days and evenings such as in the fall and winter.

A large dining room with fireplace and with plenty of seating for your group.

A very large, spacious, modernized kitchen with all the amenities plus plenty of counter space. It is perfect for cooking in a group and informal dining around the large country-style table. The kitchen often becomes the heart of guests' stays.

3 bedrooms on the main floor, each that sleeps 2 people, 2 single bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms are suites with their own bathroom.

Original farmhouse's wood-beamed ceilings and many of the original, terracotta tile floors.

Radiant heating in the floors. Halogen track lighting in many of the rooms.

Simple, tasteful furnishings, linens, decor and artwork throughout, including original fresco paintings and other artwork by the artist-owner.

On the First Floor - upstairs:

3 bedrooms, each that sleeps 2 people or 4 people.

One of the bedrooms is a suite with its own bathroom. The bathroom has a spacious, tiled, step-in shower, and a large, modern bathtub with views overlooking the rear garden. A perfect spot to take a quiet soak and enjoy the beauty of the surrounding countryside by day, or by the moon and stars at night.

Similar to the ground floor, radiant heating in the floors and simple, tasteful furnishings, linens, and original fresco paintings and other artwork by the artist-owner.

The Garden and Grounds

A large, front terrace, ideal for dining al fresco in the spring, summer and fall in good weather. A wonderful place to enjoy foods purchased from the local farmers' markets such as regional goat cheeses and honeys, seasonal fruits and vegetables, as well as breads from the local village bakery, and a glass of one of the regional wines.

Large, extensive grounds with broad lawn areas and clusters of shade trees.

The shade trees with hammocks are a lovely place to relax, read a book, or take a siesta.

The large lawn areas and grounds are perfect for walking, playing and exploring - a wonderful place for guests of all ages, including children.

An outdoor barbecue is provided, perfect for grilling meals including regionally grown vegetables and meats, such as lamb.

A 9 meter long swimming pool with counter-current is a perfect place to take a short or long dip, or an invigorating swim.

The Countryside

Nearby walking paths are a wonderful way to explore nature and observe working farms - from fields of sunflowers, to chicken, geese, and cattle.

Country roads for bicycling start just at the end of the driveway and are located throughout the region.

Medieval castles, nature preserves, charming villages, farmers' markets, cafes and restaurants that serve regional cuisine, and more. This is a perfect location to visit the region.

BEAUTIFUL GITE, PERFECTLY LOCATED, STUNNING!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a perfect holiday here. We were a large group of family and friends and had lots of space in this fantastic gite. If we wanted our own space there was an abundance of it to go have quiet time, and when we wanted to all gather as a group, inside or out, to eat or just relax this was just as easy.
The facilities are fabulous - we catered every day for all meals no problem even with the size of our group.
The gite is perfectly located - though 'away from it all' and peaceful there is a supermarket only 5mins away. We visited fabulous chateauxs, the Zoo, a lake for canoeing and much more, all within around 45mins drive easily.
The host could not have been more hopeful in recommending places and helping us book etc.
The photos do not do the place justice - it really is stunning!!!
We will definitely return in the next few years with our party which ranged from a 6 week old baby, through teenagers 16-18, 30s, 50s and good old nan too!!!
You will not be disappointed with the gite, host, location or facilities in any way - none of us were in the slightest!!!

Owner's Response: Le gîte est l'ancien domicile d'une artiste: tableaux et sculptures d'art contemporain constituent un ornement chaleureux et original dans cette maison traditionnelle du Berry, dont une grande partie date du XVIII ° siècle.

TRÈS BON SÉJOUR ACCUEIL AGRÉABLE

  • 5 of 5
L'été forcément agréable ... Mais même en hiver on peut y vivre cloîtré. Une très grande cuisine bien équipée et pratique, et sa grande table centrée qui devient le lieu incontournable ou tout le monde s'arrête pour discuter. Et c'est l'espace pour chacun, salon, chambres, salle à manger, tout est dans la grandeur, la propreté et le confort. Vraiment, si un jour vous avez l'occasion d'y séjourner, saisissez là !

SÉJOUR HORS DU TEMPS À CLÉRÉ

  • 5 of 5
Le temps s'est arrêté quand nous sommes arrivés à Cléré. Nous avons été très bien accueillis. Le gîte est spacieux, décoré avec goût, très fonctionnel mais surtout, malgré sa capacité d'accueil il offre à chacune des familles présentes son intimité (agencement, le nombre de salles de bain...).
Les enfants, comme les adultes, ont profité du parc et de la piscine.
Les équipements extérieurs (transats, barbecue...) nous ont permis de profiter des derniers rayons de soleil de l'été et des jolies fleurs.

Nos amis et nous même garderons un très bon souvenir de notre séjour à Cléré.
