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.

Walking into the main living room is a real 'Wow' moment! The pool is excellent, and having a cover just made it usable at all times, regardless of a little rain (the weather was mostly gorgeous)! The temperature of the water was also perfect for me, and made swimming everyday a pleasure. The outside covered play area was brilliant and many a happy 'hour' was spent playing table tennis, pool or table football. The negative would be that there was little (no) information in English. We struggled a little with locating and working things and had to approach the owner a couple of times for support. However, he was always helpful and responsive to emails. We also found the bedrooms quite warm overnight and would have appreciated sheets on the beds instead of thick covers, and the use of the air con! This being said, I do hope this reads as a positive review. Now we know how everything works we would definitely like to return in the future. It is a wonderful property. I think it really deserves four and a half stars!! :-) Thank you!

Whilst the setting is quiet and unspoilt the local shops cater for everything you need from croissants and baguettes and fresh produce to excellent wines as only the French can. The outside space is fabulous with lots of trees for shade; a great pool to cool off in with views over the local countryside. The cottage is very spacious but still cosy with a very traditional feel about it. In fact we really fell in love with the place and can't wait to return.

Although we were just a couple staying there I noted that it was extremely well equipped for children to stay there. The accommodation is large, clean and the kitchen is well equipped. The weather was not at its best when we visited but we still managed to enjoy many meals outside in the extensive grounds of the house. The setting is very tranquil and we enjoyed a very relaxing visit. I highly recommend this property.
