Beautiful property with excellent facilities

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate cottage. Very well equipped with everything you need for a holiday. Beautiful grounds with a lovely swimming pool and lots of games e.g table tennis and boule. Very welcoming hosts in Angela and Derek who advised on places to visit in the area and were always available to assist. Great location for a quiet, peaceful holiday all set in a beautiful village.

Rural France at its best...and more!

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing more to say other than excellent!!!! Derek and Angela have created the perfect spot in a beautiful location to get away and enjoy peace, quiet and France at its best.

The cottage has everything you could possibly need and the extra touches provided make it a real home from home but manages to keep the authentic rural French feel. Derek and Angela have catered for everyone, from the pool to the table tennis, bikes, BBQs, washing machines and badminton-not to mention the wine!

The setting and garden is beautful and we found it the perfect spot to unwind, relax and soak up the sun.

In the surrounding area there are beautiful villages and towns, such a Loches, to visit and with the supermarket a short drive away this is really is the perfect place for a great holiday. Cannot reccomend enough!

Relax in a beautiful garden setting in the Loire

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at The Grange, perfect for our family of two adults and three children. The accom was very lovely and spacious, comfy beds and everything very clean. Loads of space outside too, heated pool under clear dome was fantastic for all weather. We played badminton and ping pong, and rode bike all around the area. It's situated in a sweet little village, tucked away off the main highway but close to everything. Angela and Derek were perfect hosts, kind and helpful. We hope to return again and would highly recommend.

Wonderful and Tranquil Setting - a GEM!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at La Vielle Ferme. It was a wonderful base from which to tour the many grand Chateaux. Angela and Derek are wonderful hosts and we enjoyed their thoughtful hospitality. With their advice we were able to successfully tour the area with complete ease and we are truly grateful to them for making our holiday in Clere du Bois, Loire Valley, a wonderful experience. Our girls 12yo and 15yo loved the pool, table tennis table, the endless supply of DVDs, and we all particularly enjoyed the BBQ. Derek loves his garden and the setting to the villas are all complemented with his beautiful roses/flowers and colour.

A very special family holiday which offer

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week staying at The Grange with three teenagers. The accomodation is super and has everything you could possibly need. We also all enjoyed the faciliies the site itself offers, which includes a very clean and well looked after swimming pool and beautiful gardens to relax and sunbathe in. The table tennis and badminton were excellent too and were well used by the teenagers, as they are readily available. This all makes for a very easy and relaxing holiday but I think what makes this place really unique are the hosts, Derek and Angela. They are so welcoming, helpful (booking restaurants, trip advice etc) and relaxing, the holiday was very special indeed. We will definitely go back.
