David and I bought the barn in 2004 and worked for two years renovating into the comfortable home it is now. We have lived in France since 2011. We looked in many different regions and decided on this region because of the beauty of the countryside and the vast places to visit in the area. We have always spent our holidays in France and eventually our dreams came true when we found La Grange.

Hilary and David Madle purchased this barn in 2004

It was love at first sight although was only a barn with a roof and walls and earth floor but we both could visualise what it could be. It is situated in a pretty hamlet although no shops they are ten minutes down the road. The peace and quiet is wonderful but you can get in the car and be sight seeing chateaux pretty villages in no time at all.

La Grange is a home from home very large plenty of space and the hamlet is very peaceful and it's very easy to relax and enjoy the views of the countryside.

Holiday barn

  • 5 of 5
Hi we stayed here at Christmas for nearly 10 days. We were 4 adults and a 2.5 yr old. Hilary and Dave were amazing hosts. I must say I never stayed somewhere so welcome and an absolutely beautiful place. They even put a beautiful Christmas tree for us with presents and everything. The bedrooms were big and comfortable with en suites and an additional shower WC downstairs. They recommended some amazing places to eat locally. Away from the cities yet close to everything. I bet summer must be spectacular with sunflower fields. The temperature was 14 degrees C on Christmas Day.
The place is immaculate with wood fires keeping you warm and cosy. Lovely walks near by and we did not want to leave!! Definitely recommend this place and also try and buy a place nearby there. You are near Chinon and Saumur. Best hols!!!!!

Charming home-from-home in a peaceful hamlet

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our week in Hilary and David's very comfortable and well-furnished home in the French countryside. The house is part of a small hamlet which was quiet and tucked away and the views were wonderful from the back of the house. Hilary and David are lovely hosts and looked after us well. Hope to be able to go back sometime.

TRANQUIL, WONDERFUL ACCOMMODATION

  • 5 of 5
La Grange is in a great countryside location, the view from the back verandah is amazing! Every comfort has been thought of and Dave and Hilary are so helpful and friendly! When we arrived late afternoon - the fridge was stocked with basics and there was fresh bread and two bottles of local wine waiting for us! We had some wonderful walks in the area and found some great restaurants in villages no more than 6 km away. We also cooked some meals in the very well equipped kitchen. The beds were very comfortable and the peace and quiet of the area helped us get a fantastic night's sleep! I would love to stay here again (though France is a long way from Australia) and would spend more time just sitting outside on the back verandah enjoying the fantastic view of green fields and trees. Highly recommended!

Just Perfect, Relaxing and Stunning

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at 'La Grange' was simply perfect. The location is beautiful allowing for the 'away from it all' feeling while in comfortable driving distance to a plethora of attractions. David and Hilary were utterly spectacular hosts and even invited us to share a bottle of wine and some cheese in true french fashion. The actual house is beautifully decorated, the kitchen in particular allowed us to indulge in experimenting with the local cuisine. The backyard is the excellent place to daydream, read a book and sip some wine and we found ourselves outside frequently.
We could not recommend this property enough to any and all prospective holidayers. We would go back in a heartbeat and would like to thank David and Hilary for an amazing stay and great company.

Lovely property , well maintained and spacious, very well equipped with everything you need including WiFi . The owners Hilary and David were great hosts and fantastic company. Its especially good if you want a nice relaxing holiday, the garden and outlook were lovely, many local walks and chateaux to visit if you want to.
A swimming pool would have got it 5 stars! Highly recommended.

Nice house, nice setting

  • 4 of 5
This property is a well-equipped and well-renovated barn with excellent living spaces on the ground floor (kitchen-dining and living rooms). Upstairs is not so good, with one of the bedrooms being much larger and brighter than the other and with its own ensuite bathroom. Neither of the bathrooms is big enough for comfort, with nowhere convenient to put things down and a shower that is too cramped. All in all I'd say that the property is more suitable for a family with 2-3 children than for two couples.
The owners, who live close by, are very friendly and helpful if called upon but not at all intrusive. Top marks to them!
A word of caution, though, to those (like us) who don't want to have to drive a long way to do their grocery shopping (or even get a pint of milk): this property, despite its plus-points, is truly out in the wilds, so you'd need to be aware of that in advance and to be prepared for a great deal of driving. It would be ideal, however, for people who are looking for a very quiet holiday with lots of reading and walking. The setting and the views are really lovely.

Owner's Response: It is never easy to respond to complaints and we are disappointed that Mr and Mrs Vincents holiday experience with us did not deliver on all levels.
We have revisited the web-site and had another look at the pictures shown,we think that they show the rooms in a true and accurate light we will concede that the green bathroom is smaller than the en-suite but by European standards it is more than adequate with the shower measuring 800. Mrs Vincent complained about the bedroom being small and dark,the room has a double bed,double wardrobe plus bedside tables and lamps with one window necessary in the summer to keep the room cool when we have temperatures in the 30&40 unfortunatly when Mrs Vincent was staying with us June was dry but very grey. We do say on the web-site that a car is necessary but we will add that we have no shops in the hamlet but there is a bakers and a small shop in Barrou at 4kilometres plus if a supermarket type shop is required this can be done at Yzures-sur-creuse or La Roche Posey which are 8 kilometres from La Grange. All this information is provided in our welcome file but visitors to France for the first time might not be aware that corner shops are not found in rural France,We feel that La Grange suitable for family's and couples alike we feel that with three fully equipped bathrooms and two bedrooms it offers good accomodation for all.
Kind Regards
Dave & Hilary

La Grange is situated in a small hamlet of Les Viaullieres, in the commune of Chaumussay. Although in the beautiful countryside of Southern Loire there is so much to do and see. There are many villages and towns which hold a weekly market. Loches which is 20 minutes drive away holds a market Wednesday and Saturday plus in the summer a lovely night market where you can buy local food and wine, visit the chateau, don jon and walk around the charming town with its beautiful park. Le Grand Pressigny a small town has its chateau with its new museum of prehistoric history. Also nearby you can spend the day swimming in the river at Lesigny where there is a beach great for the children and having lunch at the picnic area by the river. La Roche Possay, 10 minutes drive also has a market but is also a spa town and also has a beach and swimming in the river.

There are restaurants locally which serve superb food at a reasonable price also a Michelin star restaurant is 5 miles from La Grange in Petite Pressigny.

The countryside is ideal for cycling to see the beautiful region we have two cycles for our guests use.
