About the property

Lovely village house in the region of rivers and sweet life

This beautiful charming 18th century house with character and the comfort of a 4-star accommodation is ideal for holiday-makers who love countryside, rivers, hiking, biking, forest, etc.

The indoor glamour decoration and the antique furniture will seduce you and the modern fittings will provide comfort.

The antique furniture and the colours have been carefully chosen. The exposed beams and stones and the fireplace embellish the property.

Located right in the heart of a charming village facing the baker at the edge of La Touraine, Le Poitou and Le Berry, 10 minutes from La Roche-Posay, the Gîte des Glycines has a small, quiet and charming flowered garden in a quiet environment (garden furniture and electric barbecue).

On the ground floor, there is a large living space with all modern conveniences: fireplace, comfortable sofa, large and beautiful farm table, beautiful recently fully fitted open plan kitchen and South-exposed living room.

Stones, beams and fireplace to embellish everything

On the first floor, there is a very spacious bedroom with new very comfortable extra-large bed, large office area and reading area.

There are many cultural and sport activities

The Creuse River is very close. You will also have the opportunity to swim on the small sandy beach. For river fishing lovers, a private fishing area on La Claise, 5 minutes away, is at your disposal.

10 minutes away, La Roche-Posay which is a Spa well known for the benefits of its cures, will give you the opportunity to play golf, go to the casino or enjoy the wonderful Spas. Cinemas, music festivals, second-hand trade on Sunday: you will never get bored. Children can go to the Futuroscope (30 minutes away) or you can visit the famous Châteaux of the Loire Valley.

The ponds of La Brenne in Le Berry are not far away

The legendary sun, landscapes and sweet life will delight you. Quietness and serenity are the keyword.

About Mrs Alexandre

Hubert, the owner, an agronomist by training, will make you discover its vegetable garden, its passion or will make you visit, if you want, the wonderful vineyards of the Loire region, its other passion.

Françoise, the hostess, really likes decoration and loves bargain-hunting

She will recommend you good deals in the region and will do her best to make you spend a successful holiday.

Harmony, comfort and relaxation: we are always on hand to help you.

Mrs Alexandre purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Mrs Alexandre chose Lésigny

Former Parisian, during my childhood I used to spend my summer holiday in La Roche-Posay

As we love old stones, we fell for this house made of local stones located in the centre of a lovely village. In addition, the climate is particularly pleasant and sunny.

We want to share with you our love for this stunning region and make you discover the cultural heritage, that is often little known, such as the prestigious Roman churches. The famous Châteaux of the Loire Valley are very close.

Many leisure activities around the rivers: fishing (private area on La Claise), swimming, canoeing, beautiful hikes or bike rides, 18-hole golf course 10 minutes away and Futuroscope 35 minutes away.

For shopping: Tours and Poitiers are not far away

There are many music festivals in the region.

What makes this cottage unique

Reception, charm and comfort of a 4-star accommodation for this holiday cottage that has been fully renovated in 2013.

Wonderful countryside close to 3 rivers, at the edge of La Touraine and Le Poitou and at the gates of Le Berry. Sweet lifestyle and serenity are guaranteed.

The peaceful environment close to 3 rivers will seduce you

There is everything to spend pleasant holidays: the comfort of this place, the elegant, cosy and glamour decoration and the charming flowered garden.

It is very important to us to welcome you as if you were friends and are always ready to simplify things for you as we live nearby.

We had a very pleasant week with Madam Francoise Alexandre. We had a very warm welcome from Francoise ,and she gave us a lot of information about the region which was very helpful.

She was always around should we need anything or advice.

Recommend the gite and the surrounding villages and countryside.

A wonderfully calm & relaxing place.

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I had a wonderful time here' a relaxing and calm place to stay. Everything you could need is there and the surrounding villages are well worth a visit...Françoise will give you all the information you could ever need about places to visit, local markets, places of interest etc. We were made very welcome and the house is as beautiful as the photographs suggest. Parking is easy, just outside the front door and there is a local boulangerie across the road open at the usual times for a French village but also Sunday morning, The village is quiet. peaceful and charming with a beach 10 mins slow walk away. We had a fantastic week here and would go again. many thanks for everything.

Ein schöner und ruhiger Urlaub.....

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns in Lesigny sehr wohl gefühlt.... unser Vermieterin war sehr aufmerksam und hat uns mit vielen Tipps für Ausflüge, Sehenswürdigkeiten und Restaurants versorgt.

Das Haus ist sehr charmant und komplett eingerichtet.

Die Gegend ist sicherlich nicht so bekannt wie das Loire-Tal aber sehr reizvoll, mit einer guten Mischung aus Kultur und Natur.

Wir haben uns sehr gut erholt und den Urlaub genossen.....

Viele Grüße aus Gelnhausen
