Perfect surroundings for a perfect holiday
This is an expertly modernised gite which yet retains all the authentic and attractive look of a Loire farm. The interior is well maintained and spacious with good quality furniture and fittings. The kitchen is well equipped and in excellent good order. The bedrooms are of good size, with comfortable beds and are provided with fans. The bathroom is immaculate and has a good 'spa' shower. Outside, there is a superb large pool, well maintained lawns and a private garden area, again with top quality seats, tables and barbecue. Not the sort of place with cheap plastic seats!
We intend to come here again.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour. Les installations sont top. Les chambres spacieuses et propres. Les environs sont calmes. Grâce aux nombreuses activités proposées gratuitement (jeux de balles, piscine, vélo, pétanque) nous n'avons pas vu le temps passé et notre fille y a appris à faire du vélo...
C'est avec un grand plaisir que nous recommandons ce gîte.

Wir haben im Mai 2017 das Ferienhaus Pluvier angemietet und waren sehr begeistert. Die geschmackvolle Einrichtung und die gehobene Ausstattung ließen keine Wünsche offen. Der beheizte Pool und die Außenanlage waren sehr gepflegt. Sehr nette und kompetente Vermieter (Sandra and Ian Andrews) die auch sehr hilfsbereit und zugänglich waren. Das Anwesen liegt idyllisch und ruhig mit guter Anbindung für das Alltägliche (Supermarkt, Tankstelle, Post etc.) sowie für Exkursionen ins Umland. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder!

Descartes was the home of the philosopher René Descartes and has a museum dedicated to his work whilst its superb leisure facilities provide opportunities for tennis, canoeing, fishing as well as other activities. Descartes also has an excellent Sunday market, wine shop and restaurants.

Personal visits can arranged to a number of vineyards Other places to visit include the superb zoo at Beauval, the zoological park at La Haute Touche, Futuroscope at Poitiers, troglodyte caves at St Remy and the Fantasy Forest adventure park near Chaumont. We highly recommend the Brenne Regional Park. This area of 1000 lakes is superb for cycling, water-sports, walking, bird-watching and anyone interested in nature. At one of its large lakes, Etang de Bellebouche, there is a wonderful beach and opportunities for many watersports. The Loire Valley is known as the Garden of France and the Cradle of the French Language. It is also renowned for the quality of its architectural heritage and since the year 2000, the central part of the Loire River valley has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This recognises its historic towns such as Amboise, Chinon and Tours as well as the smaller towns such as Descartes, Loches and Richelieu. The region is also well known for its châteaux, such as the renowned chateaux at Chenonceau, Chambord, Ussé, Azay le Rideau, Villandry and Chaumont. Others we recommend include Montresor, Loches, Chinon, Rivau and Cheverny. Villandry and Chaumont are well known for their beautiful gardens. All are within easy reach of Les Petites Cigognes. Les Petites Cigognes is a superb base for birdwatching, with many species being seen and heard directly on site or within walking distance, including Montagu's Harrier, Black Redstart, Golden Oriole and Melodious Warbler.
