Wonderfully Rural Perfection
Our stay at the Abbaye was just wonderful!!!
Our hosts, Christina and Marc, were very lovely and welcoming. They were very easy to communicate with before and during our stay. We were able to take a tour of the Abbaye and it’s grounds with Marc, who is very knowledgeable and passionate about retaining the history of the time period. Once we were familiar with the roads , it was easy to get to Chinon and Richelieu from our apartment.
The apartment was very comfortable and clean. It had everything we needed. We were even welcomed with some champagne and snacks upon our arrival. We would have loved to have been able to stay longer and enjoyed the relaxation of the site. We will definitely stay again next time we are in the Loire Valley.
Thank you Jeannie! Hope you could find a shipping for the vouvray! We are having a jambalaya to night!!Best regards Christine&Marc
Heaven on earth!! 💖💖💖
Wow! Where do we start? The setting is absolutely idyllic. We stayed in the Porterie, next to the abbey. Cosy yet perfect. The house had every mod con we required yet still had all its rustic charm.
Our hosts made us feel like a part of the family from the moment we arrived yet were never intrusive in our holiday. They showed us around the historic setting and advised on all the surrounding points of interest. They were always on hand when we needed them.
We travelled with a thirteen year old and a six year old. The wifi connection meant we had a happy teen and the swimming pool, fully stocked with toys for the children, kept our six year old happy for hours.
Charming, relaxing, perfect!!
Very Special place.....Extra special hosts!!
What an amazing family holiday we had this year! We were so fortunate to spot this beautiful listing on the homeAway website but be warned, even those fabulous photos and rave reviews could not do full justice to the magical place that is Labbaye de Bois Aubry!We at once felt so privileged to live for a week alongside the abbey in accommodation that was luxurious, spotless and extremely well equipped.The grounds were picture postcard perfect and the wider area was steeped in history and culture... a week was just not long enough to explore its riches.
We holidayed with 2 teenagers and a preteen , who spent their days swimming, exploring and absorbing more history than they had ever learned in school.
Last but not least we must give huge credit to our exceptional hosts Mark and Christine who brought the abbey to life for us and went above and beyond all expectations to make our stay the fabulous success that it was. To our new friends Mark an Christine, a huge Thank you from us all. For anyone considering a visit to Labbaye.....Go for it, you will certainly be delighted!
Thank you so mutch for your review! We would love to have your kind of family in our gîte all the times .We were really happy to welcome you here ! Hope to see you here another time !
An absolute find! Really fell for the look of this place when it came up online, and booked as soon as knew it was available. Very happy to discover it in the middle of very peaceful countryside, but within easy access of a walled town, Richelieu. Traditional village restaurant a few minutes drive away.
Very welcoming and knowledgeable hosts in Marc and Christine, who have lovingly restored this gorgeous Abbaye. Nothing too much trouble, Happy to chat and assist whenever possible. Have now booked to return and would thoroughly recommend to those who are seeking a quiet base to discover this lovely area of France. Top tip - take a telescope, as the skies are so clear at night! And if you are travelling with children - the treetop rope course at St Benoit Aventure is definitely worth a visit!
Nous avons été ravis d' accueillir cette famille venue d'Angleterre .Leur discrétion et leur gentillesse font d' eux des locataires idéaux.Nous savons qu' ils reviendrons et avons hâte de les revoir dans nos gîtes!
Eine traumhafte Immobilie. Die Ruhe und der Sternenhimmel waren überragend. Die Gastgeber haben tolle Tipps für Besichtigungen und zum Essen gehen gehabt.
Die Jeepfahrten und die Tour durch die Klosteranlage waren sehr schön und abwechslungsreich. So haben wir das nicht erwartet. Tolle Gastgeber, sehr freundlich und witzig. Vielen Dank
Eine ganz besondere Unterkunft
Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Urlaub in dieser ganz besonderen Unterkunft. Wir waren als Familie zu fünft im sehr ansprechend und modern ausgebauten Haus Grenier Grain. Auf dem Gelände gibt es nur ein weiteres Ferienhaus für 3 Personen.
Der ganz besondere Charme der Abbeye und des traumhaften Geländes hat alle in seinen Bann gezogen. Das Vermieterehepaar wohnt ebenfalls auf dem Gelände. Die Beiden sind unglaublich nett, auskunftsfreudig und hilfsbereit. Wir kamen in den Genuss einer Landrover Tour querfeldein und einer hochinteressanten unterhaltsamen Führung durch die Abbeye.
Die Schlösser der Loire sind alle gut zu erreichen.
Wer einen historischen Urlaub in ganz besonderem Ambiente sucht ist hier richtig.
Our superior gites are located in Indre et Loire, Department 37. The Abbaye, surrounded by pretty little villages also has easy access to the motorway networks and is on the doorstep to culture with a lovely landscape for walking or cycling. We are surrounded by pretty, romantic chateaux, museums, vineyards and caves, market towns selling locally produced foods, galleries and the Atlantic coast is roughly two hours away. The Abbaye not only makes a successful base from which to explore the area, it is a place for you to relax and take pleasure in the quiet and breath-taking beauty of the historic setting, closing out the possibly stressful demands of modern living.
Our village, Luze, has the quaint little bar on the corner, facing the old church. The church retains its role as fundamental to the community; the bells toll each morning, calling the farmers to work. It tolls again for them to stop for lunch, resume after and finally, at the end of the day, for them to finish work and enjoy a 'pastis' in the bar. Fortunately, the toll does not reach us! Our closest town is Richelieu, a 'walled cite', built by Cardinal Richelieu, an ally of Louis XIV. Richelieu is of a grid construction with very impressive houses, a park, historic market hall, opened on most days and cafe bars situated around the square. The facilities you may need can be found here.
