Lovely

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a really relaxing week, sunshine and a quiet retreat from busy work life! Garth and Liz were accomadating, friendly and kind and gave us ideas of where to go and keep entertained. I would recommend the chateau names Chanonoseau (not sure of spelling) near Tours and going to Loche for canoeing. Easy, inexpensive days out :-)

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

The gite was great. We were met by Garth on arrival and he explained all about the gite and the local area. It was exactly as the website described, very clean, modern and well maintained. The pool and hot tub was superb. Garth cleaned the pool every other day and answered any questions regarding places to visit. Neighbours were friendly and you were not overlooked by anyone. You are surrounded by farms, but only 5 minutes away from the nearest town which has a supermarket, petrol station and a few restaurants. Within 25 mins there is Loches, which has a large supermarket, a varied choice of restaurants, good local market and a few sights. Tours is just over 30 mins, this has everything, local wine makers (Vouvray is Superb) and a lake beach. You are surrounded by Chateaus and local villages which are very picturesque.

In summary this is a great place to stay to relax but you are very close to a lot of attractions. Would highly recommend it.

Peace perfect peace!

  • 5 of 5

Les Aubepines is a beautiful gite surrounded by lovely views of the French countryside. It is so quiet and peaceful. The gite itself was immaculate inside with lovely furnishings. We had two families holidaying together and found that we had plenty to keep us occupied e.g with the pool, hot tub and games etc or even watch a DVD. It was nice to meet Garth, the owner, who was on hand to help with any problems. We would certainly holiday there again as a week was much too short to explore the area. Highly recommend this gite.

Peaceful, bright home

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house near some wonderful places to visit. Peaceful and clean. We barbequed every night and loved spending time in the garden. The owner Garath was very helpful and there was plenty of kitchen utensils. Bring your own board games for a perfect vacation.

Fantastic for families

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant.That's how we all felt about our stay at this lovely property.All of our children and grandchildren came, which came to a total of 15.The house is spacious enough to cope with that number without having the feeling of being overcrowded.The garden is large and interesting enough to keep young children occupied when they were not in the pool.In short we enjoyed the whole experience of staying here.I would highly recommend this location for a relaxing holiday.The central location of this property makes it easy to visit the rest of the Loire.If you want a french holiday with pool and hot tub where you can count the stars with a glass in your hand.This is the place for you.Fantastic.

Perfect location for exploring the Loire region.

  • 4 of 5

Les aubepines was a very nice property located in a lovely part of France. There was something for everyone be it the pool or the gardens that the kids really enjoyed or the hot tub for the adults!

Location was ideal for us to explore the surrounding towns and villages and to sample the many local markets.

A very nice time had by all.

This is an excellent area for châteaux, including Chinon, Loches, Amboise, Azay le Rideau, Chenonceau, Villandry, Langeais, Blois, Chambord, Rigny Ussy (apparently the inspiration for 'Sleeping Beauty'), Valencay and Montresor. Some châteaux also perform Son et Lumiere shows during certain evenings of the holiday season. Futuroscope - An excellent day out for all the family, about 50 minutes away, it gives you the magic of 3D, virtual reality simulator rides and circular cinemas together, with a glimpse into the future of communication technology. Loches is nearby, with dungeons to visit as well as the château, busy markets on Saturday and Wednesday and several night markets taking place in August. Descartes - Once home to the philosopher René Descartes, boasts an excellent selection of activities including tennis, canoeing, crazy golf, fishing and a heated outdoor 25m swimming pool complete with children's pool, play area, flumes and café. Sunday Morning is market day worth a visit.
