La Grange Pommiers lends itself to large families and groups. It has a 24m lounge, 15m kitchen and large dining room. There is a beautifully-equipped playroom, three large spacious double rooms with high open beamed ceilings, one twin and one triple and a fully-equipped nursery for infants and two junior beds. 4 bathrooms with power showers and 3 baths including one spa bath. Free WIFI internet and free UK & French landline calls. There is a 40” flat screen HD TV in the main barn with UK TV and a selection of DVD's. The play room has a TV, Video/DVD player with a selection of films and shows. The kitchen is well equipped with all the normal gadgets and tools you'd expect from a family kitchen. We have a heated swimming pool which is surrounded by a safety fence and self locking gate, 10ft trampoline, swings and slides in the lower shady areas. The barn is close to Sainte-Sévère-sur-Indre, the location of the Jacques Tati film Jour de Fête. It sits in the traditional rural historic region of Berry made famous by George Sand and her association of Chopin. There are many country walks as you are in the heart of walking country, signs for sentier de randonnée lead almost from the front door and quiet lanes are great for cycling. We pride ourselves on being set up for families with a fully kitted out play room with everything from Happyland fairy houses to building blocks and trains, The kids even have their own tv area. We have stair gates on both staircases, top and bottom. We have safety barriers over the balcony looking down from upstairs. We were inspected by an independent child safety inspector in 2011 who recommend this. We have secured our gardens and pool area to ensure that your little ones are safe and secure within the grounds at all times and we have done this to our best ability. We also have everything you would need with newborns from sterilizers to kick mats, bumbos, off road buggies x 2, high chairs x 2 and enough blue and pink sleeping bags for a small army.

About Tania Garforth
We purchased La Grange Pommiers with a view to creating a stylish, comfortable, baby and toddler safe holiday location for families and groups of friends to visit. Over the past few years we have rented villas all over the world and hope we have managed to make a special place for people to visit. Our children ages 4 and 2 at the time loved the space and openness of the barn and run freely throughout the barn and garden from the minute they arrive.
Tania Garforth purchased this Barn in 2010
Why Tania Garforth chose Lignerolles
We chose this property as the location was fairly unspoilt by tourism and the area is still relatively untouched by mass tourism. Over the past five years we have seen a rise in tourists from all over Europe. The air quality in the Indre region is reportedly one of the best in Europe, and at night the stars twinkle so brightly its a pleasure to be out star gazing. We also chose this property for it's ease of access from all main routes down the centre of France, Paris and Limoges airports.
What makes this Barn unique
La Grange Pommiers lends itself to groups of people whether it be friends or famillies enjoying themselves. From the minute you arrive in the large open space of the kitchen with its large dining table you can feel that you won't be crowded even if you are at full capacity. The six spacious bedrooms and 4 great bathrooms give everyone plenty of space to choose from. La Grange Pommiers has a calm feeling about it and we hope you leave our home more relaxed than when you arrived.

A real home away from home
What a great experience. From booking right through to the holiday, things couldn’t have been better. Any queries before and after booking were answered promptly and professionally. The house itself was marvellous and contained everything we needed. It was clean, well laid out and full of character. The outside space was fantastic and the local villages were charming.
The area has a relaxed vibe and is perfect for a chilled out holiday.
It was perfect for both adults and children and we would highly recommend this property.
Thank you for choosing La Grange Pommiers. So glad you all enjoyed yourselves. Hope to see you all again in the future. Kind regards Tania Garforth
La Grange Pommiers
An beautiful house with everything and more we could have needed for our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed the fantastic pool at all hours of the day as we had the most amazing weather. We visited several of the local towns and a nearby adventure base. Our party consisted from the ages of 2 years through to 66 years and we all enjoyed the week and hope to return soon.
Thank you for your lovely review. So glad you all had a great holiday and managed to leave the pool and get out and about. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Kind regards Tania

Beautiful, welcoming family friendly home
This is our third visit to La Grange Pommiers and definitely wont be our last! It is a fantastic family friendly home that suits our family of 6 perfectly with room for friends to come and visit too.
Each time we come here the weather is superb and there are lots of lovely market towns and lakes nearby. This time our children did the go ape adventure which is about 20mins away, they had a fabulous time and for 3 hours adventuring it was very reasonably priced at under 20 euros.
The owners are lovely to deal with, always polite and efficient with a nothing is too much trouble attitude. Thank you very much, we will be back :-)
Thank you so much for your lovely comments. So glad you came back to us again and we look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Kind regards Tania Garforth
Ideal property if wanting rural location
Good property and information accurate. Lovely location away from it all. Property well able to accommodate a large number, we were 11, mainly adults, but very well equipped for children. Obviously a well loved house, well maintained and clean, and the owner was contactable when we needed to query something. Away from the main Loire Chateaux but plenty of interesting things to do in the vicinity.
Thank you for your kind words. So glad you enjoyed La Grange Pommiers. We hope to see you all again in the future. Kind regards Tania
