About LEROUX Christophe

Christophe and I own that property since 26 years, Christophe has clearly restored that big property witch was in a very bad state, we both like very much gardening and create a park instead of the field.

LEROUX Christophe purchased this cottage in 1990

Why LEROUX Christophe chose Indre-et-Loire

We choice that property for the character of the building but also for the position on the top of a hill, with panoramic views on a very quiet and beautiful hilly country side.The river is also very important for Christophe, he likes to fish and there is sportive fish in the river.

What makes this cottage unique

We both like old houses and the old buildings in that area call RICHELAIS are very attractive with there close courtyard, there pigeon house built is that typical beautiful whit stone, also the weather is very cool, we can grow plant from the south of France. That's why it is call the garden of France.

Hello Christophe and Claudine,

it was a nice stay at your home. The pool is really great and the water was warm. The garden is wide and very nice. The rooms in the house are practically and sweet. The kitchen is super. Thanks for the milk, butter, jam, eggs and the very good wine!

Best regards

Jennifer and Christian

bel endroit très retiré

  • 3 of 5

Très joli ensemble d'habitation , sinon les canapés sont vraiment datés et pas confortables du tout, volets inexistants mais pas de vélux occultants non plus...la propriétaire nous a trouvé une solution mais bon, çà reste du bidouillage .Voiture obligatoire pour les commerces.

En revanche : vaisselle en nombre, lits impeccables, ménage bien fait, piscine très propre, propriétaires très agréables et qui rendent service avec le sourire.

Owner's Response: Nous vous remercions pour votre commentaire. Nous sommes conscient que les rideaux des lucarnes des chambres ne sont pas assez occultants, nous prévoyons d'installer des volets intérieurs qui offriront pour ceux qui le souhaitent un noir total.

My wife and I and our 3 teenage girls had a wonderful visit at Christophe and Claudine's cottage. The place has a wonderful old-world charm yet was very comfortable. With four bedrooms, we all had our own space. The kitchen was fully equipped which allowed us to do our own cooking. We enjoyed the gardens and the pool, and the bikes allowed us to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside. We highly recommend this property!

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was great. The accommodation was lovely and in keeping with the surroundings. It was clean and well kept. Cristophe and his lovely wife Claudine were both more than helpful to all of us during our stay. There was a lovely welcome gift of fresh fruit and bread, gorgeous cheese and a nice bottle of red wine. The only downside to the whole trip was the weather was not great for a few of the days but that is out of anyone's control. overall a lovely break away from the day to day rush of life. Oh and if you go remember that nothing is open on a Sunday so get stocked up before.

Un séjour enchanteur

  • 5 of 5

La propriété est très belle, avec beaucoup de charme, un environnement spacieux, soigné, fleuri avec gout. La piscine est grande et bien protégée pour les enfants.

Claudine et Christophe nous ont spécialement bien accueillis avec beaucoup de gentillesse, des spécialités du pays, et beaucoup d'informations sur les sorties possibles.

Je recommenderais ce gite chaleureusement.

Les activités que nous avons aimées : la découverte du Ste Maure, de Richelieu, les ateliers du chateau de Montbazon, la descente en kayak et canoé...
