A Rustic Farmhouse Getaway in the middle of France

The information provided is accurate and comprehensive but could not describe the delightful nature and location of this property. Within minutes of arrival we had managed to lock ourselves out but this was clearly not a problem with the owner's representative bringing a key to let us in very quickly. The directions provided were accurate with no difficulty encountered in finding the property. First impressions are always important and ours were of a very spacious gite equipped to a high standard. Everything was spotless and we were straight in to cooking an elaborate meal for our party. Subsequently we made good use of the barbecue and were spoilt for outside dining facilities - both undercover and open. We loved cycling to the nearby village (3 kilometers - but not Mondays when it is closed) to purchase our breakfast (croissants and pain aux raisin to die for). We had small children and didn't eat out,preferring to stay at the gite and relax. Dining out does involve a car journey and frankly we felt it was more trouble than it was worth. However only 20 minutes by car to the nearest sizeable town of Loches with all the facilities you might need, supermarkets etc. then if you feel inclined a further 20 minutes to the regional centre of Tours.
The heated swimming pool was used every day - a very good size compared to many. There's something special about being able to swim whilst looking over open countryside which you do here. We also used the table tennis in the barn but none of the keep fit apparatus (we were on holiday after all).
We were able to avail ourselves of fruit and vegetables from the large garden and the tomatoes in particular were exquisite.
We had a smallish party of eight and the facilities were more than adequate though if there were eighteen in residence you might need a rota for the bathrooms. We didn't use the one in the outhouse but it looked perfectly satisfactory.
This property was perfect for us. It is in a fairly isolated location so very quiet, and I would thoroughly recommend it to potential visitors. As a spacious retreat I don't think it could be bettered.
Many thanks to the owner for letting us use her charming farmhouse - it provided us with an oasis of calm in an increasingly frenetic world.

Owner's Response: Thanks again for the wonderful review.

Beautiful rustic farmhouse in countryside location

Having viewed Les Bertins on utube we had an idea of what to expect and we were not disappointed. We arrived to see a beautiful rustic farmhouse set in the Loire in the middle of the countryside. The house was amazing, it seemed so much bigger in reality and was very clean and tidy with added touches of wild flowers to make it feel homely. The kitchen was unbelievably well stocked with every gadget, dish and pan you might possibly need. As a party of 8 adults and 8 children we had plenty of room as the house was huge and there was also enough seating for all of us to eat with 3 different dining areas. The veg patch was a real bonus and we could help ourselves to anything eg; potatoes, onions, peppers etc. The pool was ideal and plenty of outside seating is provided. The owner Linda was extremely helpful throughout the whole process from booking holiday to leaving. There is a folder of information but I recommend researching the area before traveling as we were unsure of what day markets were held and what were best places to visit with children as there was so many leaflets. We did find a lovely lake half hour away which we took a dinghy to. We absolutely loved staying at Les Bertins with its amazing sunsets, peace and quiet and thoroughly recommend it to any large group. The old barn had a table tennis table which was a real hit with our group. The bedrooms were all clean and tidy and lovely bathrooms. Our favourite area was at the rear under the Vines overlooking the countryside which offered stunning sunsets. Thank you Linda for being so helpful we had an amazing holiday at Les Bertins.

Brilliant week relaxing with friends1

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 11, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
I spent the week at Les Bertins with a groups of 13 friends, all adults, and we had a fantastic week! The house had everything we needed and more making self-catering a joy. The bonus of the vegetable patch was great as we're all Londoners and city dwellers unused to digging potatoes and picking green beans!

The location is ideal, rural and quiet with just the local farm for company. The proximity of amenities was ideal for a large group looking to relax and have fun together. Interesting local towns like Loches are a short drive away and there is a good sized supermarket supermarket a 10minute drive away.

Linda recommended some great local restaurants, and Auberge de la Source and La Promenade in Petit Presigney were lovely - La Promenade was a definite highlight!

If anything, I think the property and facilities are better than described. It's really spacious and well equipped. Linda was so helpful both beforehand and once we'd arrived - really prompt at answering my questions.

I would definitely recommend to friends and think a return visit could well be on the cards next year.
Owner's Response: Well really good to know that you all enjoyed the place as much as I do.

Fantastische familievakantie achter de rug

Reeds bij aankomst waren we blij verrast over het mooie huis, de prachtige omgeving en de smaakvolle inrichting. Een lekker flesje wijn en groenten uit de tuin maakten het helemaal af! Door het prachtig weer, konden we heerlijk genieten van het zwembad in een heerlijk kader. Met de groenten uit de tuin en kruiden kon je echte streekgerechten samenstellen. De boer was onze buur en gaf ons verse melk en uitleg over het reilen en zeilen van het boerenleven. De omgeving nodigt je uit tot fietsen, schilderen en volop genieten.
Het adres is afgelegen, maar als je van rust en schoonheid houdt, een echte aanrader.

Les Bertins

We had 3 families stay at Les Bertins - 5 adults and 9 children ranging from 9 to 15. The setting was great as away from the main road and no immediate properties nearby so we didn't have to be conscious of making too much noise. The accommodation was great, plenty of room in terms of living / sleeping / cooking space. The facilities in terms of appliances were more than adequate. The veranda at the back of the lounge was used constantly at meal times and just to sit & chat / drink. The property was very well equipped, it seemed to have everything.

We all loved the pool and amenities in the barn (table tennis, darts etc) during the times we were not travelling to other attractions. The TV/DVD came in handy when the kids just wanted to chill on the sofas while the adults were outside on the veranda in the evenings.

Definitely caters for the larger groups and the vegetable garden was a good addition at meal times, the tomatoes were great!

We would definitely recommend this property and have not stopped raving about it since we have come back.
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Pet-friendly, Girls Getaway, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children, People with Disabilities, Romantic Getaway
Owner's Response: Thanks so much. I do try to cater for all ages . Vegetable garden and pool again a hit.
