Make a holiday rental apartment or property in Indre, France your home away from home

Located in the Loire Valley, Indre, the ‘hidden France’, is a beautiful rural department hidden from the mass tourist market between the Massif Central and the Loire Valley. Considered to be the most attractive part of the Val de Loire, Indre is also known for its cuisine, most notably its goat’s cheeses and pies. This area is still unknown and unspoilt by the tourist trade, allowing visitors to get a real taste of authentic French life.

Things to do on holiday in Indre, France

If you take a self catering Indre property you will be certain to relax and return home refreshed. The wonderfully natural open countryside is a delightful place to unwind, either walking along river banks, cycling down small winding roads or riding in green fields. Along your way you will be able to explore some of the 80 small churches and 100 castles which still dominate the landscape today. The most famous castles, which form the ‘golden triangle’, Bulges, Argy and Valencay should be very near the top of the list of attractions for anyone staying in Indre property, and during September, they also become host to the music festival.

Indre is a hotbed for wine too. A self catering Indre property is ideal for wine tasting holidays, as there are many vineyards in Indre that provide tours and sampling days to the public. Lessons in wine tasting can be taken around the department if your interest in wine so far has only been in the odd glass in the evening!

The Brenne National Park is a lovely place to walk and fish. Fishermen will love the ‘country of a thousand lakes’ as it is known, and there is a huge range of flora and fauna growing here too. Despite its location almost right in the centre of France, Indre does offer beaches! The lake shores are often covered in sand, and there are a range of water sports available including sailing and windsurfing.

Everything about this location was perfect, from the moment we arrived, we were welcomed by the hosts, who had cooked a meal for us and provided a bottle of wine to go with it, to the last evening sharing a BBQ with new found friends. The covered heated pool was fantastic on the couple of wet days we had, the free wifi kept the teenagers happy. The Farmhouse is clean, comfortable & well equipped for self-catering, a BBQ is available for use, as are sun-loungers & outdoor games equipment. The owner & hosts have spent time thinking about their guests needs, the result is a fantastic holiday location that feels like home. The village location is just off the main tourist route, suiting us just fine, but within easy reach of more chateaus than you can visit in a week, our favourite being Montresor (small but beautiful and with a lovely little bar in the village). There is something for all the family to visit in the local area.

The barn was wonderful with lots of lovely quirky touches, it was fully equipped and spotlessly clean. Great bathroom with fabulous shower. British tv channels meant we kept up with events at Wimbledon & the Tour de France! We loved the area - a slice of the rural France undiscovered by tourism! Enjoying walks from the local villages using guides at the barn & fabulous meals at the nearby hotel-restaurant La Bonne Auberge! However what will we miss most - the balcony with its gorgeous views & the daily soap opera of the bull, cows & calves in the field! Though we mustn't forget the generous hospitality of our hosts Anne & John always there if you need them but keen to respect privacy! We appreciated the stocked fridge on arrival as well as the personal touches of fresh fruit and veg from the garden & Anne's homemade preserve! Our final evening was topped off by joining the locals for their Bastille Day Celebrations & impressive fireworks on the village football pitch. We certainly hope to return!
