Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Vienne - Le Clos des Glycines: 3***

Lovely village house in the region of rivers and sweet life

This beautiful charming 18th century house with character and the comfort of a 4-star accommodation is ideal for holiday-makers who love countryside, rivers, hiking, biking, forest, etc.

The indoor glamour decoration and the antique furniture will seduce you and the modern fittings will provide comfort.

The antique furniture and the colours have been carefully chosen. The exposed beams and stones and the fireplace embellish the property.

Located right in the heart of a charming village facing the baker at the edge of La Touraine, Le Poitou and Le Berry, 10 minutes from La Roche-Posay, the Gîte des Glycines has a small, quiet and charming flowered garden in a quiet environment (garden furniture and electric barbecue).

On the ground floor, there is a large living space with all modern conveniences: fireplace, comfortable sofa, large and beautiful farm table, beautiful recently fully fitted open plan kitchen and South-exposed living room.

Stones, beams and fireplace to embellish everything

On the first floor, there is a very spacious bedroom with new very comfortable extra-large bed, large office area and reading area.

There are many cultural and sport activities

The Creuse River is very close. You will also have the opportunity to swim on the small sandy beach. For river fishing lovers, a private fishing area on La Claise, 5 minutes away, is at your disposal.

10 minutes away, La Roche-Posay which is a Spa well known for the benefits of its cures, will give you the opportunity to play golf, go to the casino or enjoy the wonderful Spas. Cinemas, music festivals, second-hand trade on Sunday: you will never get bored. Children can go to the Futuroscope (30 minutes away) or you can visit the famous Châteaux of the Loire Valley.

The ponds of La Brenne in Le Berry are not far away

The legendary sun, landscapes and sweet life will delight you. Quietness and serenity are the keyword.

About Mrs Alexandre

Hubert, the owner, an agronomist by training, will make you discover its vegetable garden, its passion or will make you visit, if you want, the wonderful vineyards of the Loire region, its other passion.

Françoise, the hostess, really likes decoration and loves bargain-hunting

She will recommend you good deals in the region and will do her best to make you spend a successful holiday.

Harmony, comfort and relaxation: we are always on hand to help you.

Mrs Alexandre purchased this house in 2013

Why Mrs Alexandre chose Vienne

Former Parisian, during my childhood I used to spend my summer holiday in La Roche-Posay

As we love old stones, we fell for this house made of local stones located in the centre of a lovely village. In addition, the climate is particularly pleasant and sunny.

We want to share with you our love for this stunning region and make you discover the cultural heritage, that is often little known, such as the prestigious Roman churches. The famous Châteaux of the Loire Valley are very close.

Many leisure activities around the rivers: fishing (private area on La Claise), swimming, canoeing, beautiful hikes or bike rides, 18-hole golf course 10 minutes away and Futuroscope 35 minutes away.

For shopping: Tours and Poitiers are not far away

There are many music festivals in the region.

What makes this house unique

Reception, charm and comfort of a 4-star accommodation for this holiday cottage that has been fully renovated in 2013.

Wonderful countryside close to 3 rivers, at the edge of La Touraine and Le Poitou and at the gates of Le Berry. Sweet lifestyle and serenity are guaranteed.

The peaceful environment close to 3 rivers will seduce you

There is everything to spend pleasant holidays: the comfort of this place, the elegant, cosy and glamour decoration and the charming flowered garden.

It is very important to us to welcome you as if you were friends and are always ready to simplify things for you as we live nearby.

Owner's Response: Merci, chère Madame et Monsieur B......n, pour tous vos judicieux conseils et votre trop gentille appréciation. Nous sommes en train de vernir mat la table de la salle à manger, je vous enverrai des photos! Il fait grand beau et chaud, pas de chance quand vous êtes venus mais je crois que c'était un peu partout en France... et il y a plein de framboises dans le jardin, on se régale; par contre, pour le conseil des roses Pierre de Ronsard, ça n'a pas marché, je n'en ai pas une seule de fleurie! J'ai mis de l'engrais, on verra bien.... On a un frigo neuf depuis ce matin, plus de givre et moins de conso EDF, les Hollandais arrivent samedi et on a encore plein de choses à faire. Hubert a voulu tailler la glycine, il est tombé de l'échelle, heureusement, rien de grave, juste qu'il a une bonne excuse pour ne pas m'aider à débarrasser et faire les courses... Bel été et profitez bien de vos petits, les miens ne semblent pas décidés à venir, tant pis pour eux et surtout... pour moi! Vous serez toujours les bienvenus à Lésigny, en attendant d'aller faire un tour du côté de Sancerre boire un petit verre à notre santé... Bien amicalement, Françoise et Hubert

trois semaines au Clos des Glycines

  • 5 of 5

Hubert et Françoise vous accueillent chaleureusement dans une superbe maison joliment décorée dans les tons "gris souris" et " mauve lilas". En cure à La Roche-Posay, j'ai passé trois merveilleuses semaines. Merci encore aux propriétaires des lieux pour leur sympathie et leur gentillesse. Je conseille vraiment ce logement situé en plein bourg (face à la boulangerie du village), tout en étant très calme.

Owner's Response: Merci, Jérôme, je vous retourne le compliment, vous êtes un hôte également très sympathique et presque aussi bavard que moi....Merci de vos bons conseils pour améliorer l'isolation de la maison. Le Poitou et la Touraine n'ont plus de secrets pour vous et suis très sensible à l'attachement que vous avez pour notre jolie région, trop souvent méconnue de nos compatriotes. Espérons avoir le plaisir de vous accueillir à nouveau!

Excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 3 excellentes semaines de vacances dans cette partie du Poitou située au carrefour de 3 régions... ce qui est pratique pour accéder à tous les sites de visite (Futuroscope, Tours, Poitiers, Châteaux de la Loire, etc.). Il y a également à proximité un site de baignade agréable sur la Creuse. Le Spa de La Roche Posay est également à faire.

Les propriétaires ont largement contribué à la réussite de ce séjour de par leur gentillesse, leur disponibilité et leurs conseils avisés sur la région. Le gîte est très bien entretenu avec un extérieur joliment aménagé, l'intérieur est décoré avec beaucoup de goût et est très bien équipé... comme à la maison, il ne manque rien et on s'y sent bien. Nous recommandons donc chaleureusement ce gîte.
