DELIGHTFUL COTTAGE IN HEART OF LOIRE VALLEY WITH PRIVATE HEATED POOL

Bourgueil House Rental Photos and Description

Self catering rental with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

'Les Averries' is a 19th century 'longère' (local type of houses) renovated to a high standard and equipped with all the amenities of modern living. Situated in an east/west position with a terrace on either side of the house, you will enjoy having breakfast basking in the morning sunshine. The grounds are tended by a real garden lover and unusual plants are added every year for all to enjoy. The proximity of a glorious weeping willow offers cool shade and an ideal spot for lunch when the sun is at its zenith. The private heated pool is secured with automatic shutters and fitted with a shower and loungers. Solar panels were installed to provide you with constant hot water and to help our beloved planet in our modest way.

Set within the Loire nature park and a UNESCO world heritage site, the Loire valley is famed for its many châteaux, churches and abbeys. Bourgueil abbey dates back to the 10th C but the most famous, is without a doubt, Fontevraud where the Plantagenet kings, including Richard The Lion Heart, are buried. Within a radius of 20 miles, you will find a great array of châteaux amongst which are Chinon, Azay-le-Rideau, Ussé, Langeais and Saumur to name but a few. The Futuroscope in Poitiers is only 1 hour's drive away.

Bourgueil, along with Chinon, produces one of the finest red wines of the Loire. Bourgueil's market, under the age-old 'halles' is also one of those treasured moments that is a feast for the epicurian's palate.

Pool: Please note that from october 15th the pool is closed.

L’INVITATION AU VOYAGE

  • 5 of 5
Là, tout n'est qu'ordre et beauté, Luxe, calme et volupté disait Beaudelaire et c'est ce qu'on ressent en séjournant chez Michel Rondeau. Le mariage de ces vieilles pierres et de ce confort moderne (excellente connexion internet), de ces fauteuils voltaire et de la piscine chauffée. Penser, écrire ou lire, jouir du soleil et de la brise, vivre enfin. Tout est fait ici pour oublier le bruit et la fureur du monde, pour se ressourcer. Vives les vacances à Bourgueil !

Séjour d'exception
  • 5 of 5
Ayant eu l'occasion de séjourner plusieurs semaines dans ce gîte, j'ai pu apprécier sa merveilleuse position, près du village, du centre commercial et de tous les lieux à visiter, son calme, propice au repos et à la détente, sa piscine chauffée qui permet de passer des journées de farniente, la beauté du jardin, le confort de la maison et l'extrême gentillesse du propriétaire. Je recommande cet endroit à tous. F. Claustres

A PERFECT RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Although my review is but a year late, I wanted to provide Michel with all the beautiful pictures I took while staying in his lovely cottage with its divine garden.

Truly we felt blessed, and we were very sad to leave - I hope we can visit one day again. Beautifully situated, Les Averries was a perfect home base after a day of sightseeing, visiting the markets, lunching, wining, and visiting all the Loire Valley has to offer.

REVIEW AUGUST 2012

  • 4 of 5
We booked this because of the good review and the nice pictures. I felt it did not quite live up to its 5 star billing. The house was nice enough, with a great big dinning area and kitchen, a lovely lounge, the bedrooms were fine, the bathroom and shower room OK, the garden beautiful and the pool fantastic. For 5 stars I would expect the place to be gleaming on arrival perhaps with a bottle of wine in the fridge, but what we got was last weeks sausages and a fridge to clean out and the place was just a touch grubby around the edges. Not really bad but just needed a good deep clean, maybe it was just the end of the season.
We had a lovely holiday and really enjoyed our week here and if we were not expecting 5 stars we would not have been disappointed. The pool was fantastic and would keep kids happy for hours and adults come to that. The local town was good with lots of good French fair to be had. You are about 8 miles from a nuclear power station much to our amusement, but we decided not to visit this and about 1km from Super U. We visited lots of Chateaux, did a lot of cycling, there were some great trails you could pick up at the end of the road and they were almost flat, which was good for us. Wine tasting and drinking was obviously popular as was the cycle into town for bread in the morning. The owner was very pleasant and helpful and lived in the same complex as the house.

FABULOUS SPOT TO RELAX AND EXPLORE THE LOIRE

  • 4 of 5
We have had a very comfortable and relaxing stay at Micheal's Gite in Bourgueil. Our family of five had plenty of space in this thoughtfully furnished and equipped property, which has plenty of space inside and out. We really appreciated the beautiful and private garden to spend time in and the sunny terrace in the evening. Also the space inside meant we could have a cosy day in if there was a spot of rain.

We had great access to the Chinon and Tours and really enjoyed exploring this lovely part of France. Bourgueil had everything one needs for daily shopping, a few bars and restaurants and is very easy to get to.

This is definitely one our most successful holiday lets!

GREAT FAMILY HOLIDAY COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from 2 weeks at the cottage with our three children - 15, 8 and 6. We had a great time. It is within walking distance of the very pretty village of Bourgueil with its bakeries, restaurants, cafes and weekly market. It is also very close to a reasonably sized Hyper-U supermarket.

Outside, the garden was perfect, with enough shade, eating areas etc to suit all of us. The pool was, without doubt, the cleanest and warmest we have ever had. The water treatment is perfect, and there were no stinging eyes or smell of chlorine. The children were in it every day, even in the rain! It is just deep enough at ~140cm to make them swim, but not too deep that they cannot bounce up from the bottom. They had great fun.

The cottage comfortably accommodates 6 people with all the comforts of home. Michel is a gracious and generous host, who is discretely on hand to deal with any questions you may have.

The area is lovely, the cottage is perfect, and I can give it no better an accolade than to say we would return here.
