The most secluded and private location

  • 5 of 5

This charming traditional farmhouse and barn were absolutely perfect for the 11 of us. Comfortable accommodation with excellent bathroom facilities and a wonderful communal kitchen area were exactly what we required for the two families.

The pool was an absolute necessity especially given the extreme heat. Definitely recommended for those large groups wanting to escape from everyday life pressure.

Un gite de toute beauté

  • 5 of 5

Le gite et sa grange sont très vastes, aménagés avec goût et soin. Vous êtes chez vous.

Le cadre reste exceptionnel. Charme et calme opèrent de concert. Aux bois privés succèdent clairières où le petit matin, parmi la brume, cerfs ou chevreuils sont de sortie. Ensuite viennent les étangs dont la surface n'est troublée que par les truites et gardons. Enfin, le Chateau de Gué-Péan, splendide en ses tours dressées, et ses écuries, mille fois vivantes, clôt ce petit royaume à 2 pas de Cheverny.

Surtout, leur propriétaires restent très disponibles et pleins d'attentions.

Lieu exceptionnel, vacances de rêve !

  • 5 of 5

Emprunter le chemin de pierre qui mène aux Orfeuilles c'est déjà la promesse de moments inoubliables en totale communion avec la nature. Niché dans une jolie clairière cet ensemble architectural de charme offre des prestations de grande qualité. La maison est clean et bien équipée, rien ne manque et si c'était le cas, Stéphanie, la propriétaire, n'est jamais très loin pour répondre avec gentillesse et efficacité aux attentes de ses locataires ! La piscine sur place, le tennis tout proche et plusieurs équipements ludiques dans la très belle grange font le bonheur des petits comme des grands...Un atout supplémentaire : la proximité des lieux emblématiques qui font la renommée de cette région, les châteaux de Chambord, Chenonceau, Cheverny etc. les jardins de Chaumont-sur-Loire sans oublier le zoo de Beauval ! Nous sommes des fidèles des Orfeuilles, y avons séjourné à 5 reprises avec à chaque fois l'envie irrépressible d'y revenir !

Simplement parfait!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour en famille au domaine des Orfeuilles. C’est un endroit magnifique, très au calme et bien situé pour faire de nombreuses excursions dans la région. La maison et la grange sont très propres et arrangées avec énormément de goût. Le gîte est parfaitement équipé! Il ne faudrait surtout pas oublier de mentionner l’excellent accueil des très sympathiques propriétaires - Stéphanie et David! Ils nous ont reçus très chaleureusement et nous ont donné de très bons conseils. Le Domaine des Orfeuilles est donc un endroit à conseiller absolument à tous ceux qui souhaitent passer de magnifiques et inoubliables vacances!

Excellent Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Gîte des orfeuilles was fantastic. Stephanie is very nice, very helpful and friendly. The houses were clean, beautiful and fully equipped. We were a group of 11 and had a great time in this property. It is close to many wineries and castles, and there is a farm with horses 5 mins away.

Located in the Loire Valley between Blois and Tours, amidst the most prestigious Loire Chateaux

Surrounded by forests and vineyards, in one of the most beautiful and historical regions of France, David and Stéphanie de Schrynmakers de Dormael, are pleased to welcome you to their 700-hectare estate, deep in the countryside and at the heart of the Loire châteaux. The Belgian couple, who have been living in the Centre region for the past 20 years, can tell you all about the secrets of this enchanting spot. Come and discover the peacefulness and open spaces of the estate, either with the family or friends, and forget the stresses of everyday life. Whether you prefer a traditional farmhouse (12 peoples in the gite des orfeuilles) or a country house (14 peoples in la demeure de Bizard), we can suggest two secluded sites in an exceptional setting, far from the beaten track, where you can enjoy a private swimming pool. A tennis court and lakes for fishing are also available on the estate. Beyond any doubt, these are bucolic, warm and welcoming places you will want to talk about, or keep a secret… to discover the joys of coming back again.
