About Marie and Marc Van Lul

My husband and I were living in Lyon - France. After many years travelling everywhere around the world for business, we decided to look for a new place to live in the peaceful French countryside. And we have fallen in love with this fabulous piece of land, with lovely houses, trees and people. I am a native of this area and I enjoy a lot sharing about history, culture and nature of this beautiful region. My husband has sold his HR consultancy and doesn't work anymore. I was holding a senior management position in an international company. I speak English, German, Spanish and French; I am now a consultant for international development. We are now extremely happy to live at La Richaudière with our cat Penelope, our 5 ducks on the lake, farmer's horses in our field, red sqarrels and birds from the Brenne Park.

Marie and Marc Van Lul purchased this villa in 2010

Why Marie and Marc Van Lul chose Indre

Our gites are located in a lovely unspoilt region of France however we are still well located for all the main tourist attractions of the Loire.

What makes this villa unique

All of our gites are very spacious and equipped to a very high standard. As an example we have invested in sumptuous mattresses and bed linen to ensure that all of our guests are able to enjoy a great night's sleep.

Within our 12 acres there is plenty of room for everyone to have privacy or to join their neighbours if they would prefer. The gites are well located for the many attractions that the region offers. Within an hour's drive you can reach many of Loire chateaux, Tours and Futuroscope as well as enjoy many activities for all the family.

Wonderful gite , owners and area

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many gites in France and this is undoubtedly the best. The gite itself is superbly equipped, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The owners, who live on site, are wonderful - unobtrusive yet always available if help is needed and very lovely people. It's the little touches which make all the difference like wooden coat hangers, lovely bed linen, a fabulous welcome pack of local produce and so on. The pool area is fantastic and the games room very well equipped. We are already looking forward to our stay next year having booked to return before we left!

Great stay at villa peuplier

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic week at Villa peuplier. The gites is spacious, comfortable and well-kitted out with quality appliances. Everything is very well set up for a family holiday with plenty to do on site - the covered heated swimming pool is excellent. The owners are extremely friendly and couldn't be more helpful.

Superb Gites

  • 5 of 5

Peuplier was very spacious, large bedrooms and bathrooms, modern fittings throughout and really well equipped. Marie could not have been more helpful, always willing to phone to book golf, restaurants, taxis etc.

The welcome booklet was very helpful.

The pool, games room and outdoor games area were fantastic and our grandchildren (and their parents - as well as us) really enjoyed them.

We booked again for next year before leaving to come home.

Same comments apply to Chene - we were a large family group of 10

Would certainly recommend for a peaceful holiday in the middle of the countryside.

Fabulous Property - you just won't want t

  • 3 of 5

Villa Peuplier is an outstanding villa situated on a beautiful property.

Having stayed in a number of rental properties across Europe, this was without doubt the best.

The Property is immaculate with lots of scope for children to enjoy a fun filled, safe and carefree holiday. The thoughtful touches such as the playroom, bicycles and extensive library of books and DVDs just made our stay extra special.

The pool was heated to a perfect temperature and the retractable cover means it is an option even when the weather isn't so good.

Marc and Marie were first class hosts providing all the help and guidance we could possibly ask for.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for such a positive review. It was a pleasure to have you with us for a fortnight at Luxury Loire Gites. We are so happy you have enjoyed our property! We would like to publish the e-mail you sent us to explain why there are only 3 stars with your comments; it will help everybody to understand: "Marie & Marc, I have just submitted a 5 star review to Holiday Lettings. I also sent a review to Owners Direct which should also be 5 stars but for some reason it has appeared with 3 stars! I don’t know how to cancel or amend this because my intention was also to have a 5* review. If you can assist with amending this or forward my email to Owners Direct I would be grateful! Thank you. Trevor McClintock" We are looking forward to welcoming you and your family in the future. Marie and Marc

Wonderful gite; wonderful welcome

  • 5 of 5

The gites are beautifully restored and refurbished. They have every amenity a family could need. Marc and Marie welcomed us personally, and were extremely helpful. The cottages were spacious, light, warm and comfortable, and maintained to a very high standard. The spacious grounds offered everything our two boys could want, including swingball, badminton nets, table tennis, a games room and slides / swings. The covered heated swimming pool was ideally sized, and all in all, we had a fine time, and would happily visit again. It's in a beautiful rural location, so a car is essential (30m to Loches; 1hr to Tours).
