disabled and pet friendly luxury Cottage in Loire Valley, France - Nestled In The Heart Of The Loire Valley With Easy Access To The Major Tourist Attractions And Towns
The property is entered via the split stable door which leads directly to the large open plan living area and kitchen. The centre piece of this room is the magnificent tuffeau stone fireplace complete with an authentic log burning fire for those cooler evenings. The seating in both the lounge and dining areas is designed for up to four guests and includes a flat screen TV, DVD player, VHS Video and English free-to-air TV and an iPod dock are provided as standard for the comfort of our guests. The kitchen has been designed to be an integral part of the living space and enjoys a high level of equipment including electric hob, wall mounted built in oven and microwave. The property has been specified for a maximum of four people with a generous amount of crockery and cutlery being provided to accommodate this number. Because of the open plan design of this living space our guests can enjoy the ambiance of the living area whilst being engaged in the kitchen. During the renovation a staircase was added to the living room which allows for future expansion of the property. All accommodation for our guests in this property is located on the ground floor level only. The bedroom is the full depth of the cottage providing spacious sleeping accommodation and has a beautiful traditional fireplace at its heart. The bed formation is made up of a double bed together with a full size single bed that has a second single bed which pulls out from underneath. This configuration allows for a maximum of four people in this room which would enable families with younger children to maximise their holiday budget. A high chair and cot are also available and are provided free of charge on request. For those guests with some element of mobility impairment the cottage benefits from a full size wet room comprising of a large walk in hydro-massage shower unit, easy flush toilet and large basin. The room is large enough to accommodate a wheelchair if required. The exterior of the cottage is very private with a terrace on the south facing aspect complete with a table and four chairs. On the west aspect there is a sun terrace with a further table and chair set and a BBQ exclusively for guest of Le Bûcheron to use and two fully reclining sun loungers. The large above ground pool (20’ x 12’) is shared with our other property and is heated by a solar cover and is fully filtered for guests use during daylight hours.
About the Owner
Loire Valley Gites is owned by Andrew and Jayne Craggs.
Having had a love affair with the Loire Valley for more than 15 years we decided to purchase our own second home in the Loire Valley. After a year of searching we found Le Bois, a small hamlet on the outskirts of the pretty village of Meigne le Vicomte. Having spent two years renovating the main property we were finally able to create a stylish and luxurious second home for our family to enjoy. As with many renovations the project ran significantly over budget and to assist in the running costs of the property we decided to offer the property to rental guests.
Since 2009 we have welcomed more than 100 guests to our second home and it is now so popular that we have to book our own time in the diary a year in advance!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Very relaxing and idyllic - Jenny Holgate - East Yorkshire, UK
Loire Valley Gites owners were very helpful and made our holiday experience one to remember. Le Bois is a lovely gite with everything you could want. Two woodburners, in the lounge and kitchen for chilly evenings are a lovely touch. It is situated in very beautiful and peaceful surroundings which makes it the ideal base to relax. We must return.
Relax Relax Relax!! - The Cope Family, Felixstowe, UK
Thats what we wanted and thats what we got . . . such a lovely peaceful location. And to have a holiday home thats as comfortable and spacious as our own was just 1st class. Andy was more than helpful at the booking stage and was ready to answer any questions we had. And the property management team were very attentive. All in all a very enjoyable holiday and we would recommend it to anyone.
Everything that a romantic French farmhouse should be...! - Anna, New York
8 of our family members gathered here for an intimate, countryside vacation and we got just that! The house is beautifully renovated with modern appliances and country-chic decor. We rented the next door cottage (from the same owner) so we could have ample room for our whole group. Owner was incredibly helpful in answering all our questions before the trip and the house contained everything we needed! British TV was a plus. My family enjoyed it so much here, we're already talking about having another reunion here!
From the Owner
“The Loire Valley offers something for everyone and it is this diversity that attracted us to the region in the first place. The pace of life is so much more relaxed than in the UK and the abundance of fresh produce and the huge range of local wines make this area a gastronomic pleasure to visit and live. Loire Valley Gites have all the benefits of a quite rural farmstead but is within easy reach of all the main tourist attractions as well as both convenient rail, road and air connections.”
