Great family venue
Spacious and well equipped, in the kitchen, bbq and sporting / games areas.
Our party of 10 and my 2 year old grandson had a fabulous holiday.
Thank you Fiona for your comment, we are very pleased that you enjoyed your holiday in La Thibaudière and would be very happy to welcome you again.
Great place to stay with friends and family
Lovely property the BBQ area along with pool and games room made it a great sociable place to be with our group of friends. Only downside was I hadn’t realised that the bathrooms didn’t all have toilets in - there were only 3 toilets and one was broken so sharing with 10 people was not ideal but apart from that had a great time. Location ideal for cycling and exploring chateaus along with wine tasting!
Hello Sally, thank you for you positive comments. We are pleased that you found the place perfect for your holidays. I'm again truly sorry for the toilets, that's what happens when holiday renters don't tell us when they broke something during their stay. We were short of time to fix it before your arrival. We offered you the extra room to compensate.
We are looking forward to see you again in Touraine.
Great house for a family or group of friends
We were 6 adults and 2 young children and chose this house because we were sure it would be able to accommodate our various sleeping preferences, which it did. There are plenty of beds, although some are in interconnecting rooms, etc., so might be better for groups of people who know each other well. Two of the bedrooms contain 5-foot double beds, the remainder are singles. There were also 4 bath/shower rooms and a couple of separate WCs. Everything was very clean. The house itself is very large - we didn't use all the rooms but lived mainly in the kitchen with its large table. All the things you would want - crockery, cutlery, cookware, serving ware - are provided in the kitchen, including a whole drawer full of IKEA plastic kids' plates, bowls and beakers. There is also a huge 'utility' room with a fridge freezer (brilliant for storing drinks and ice), washing machine and tumble drier. The kitchen has plenty of storage and a further fridge. There are two unprotected staircases to the upstairs floor, one from the hall and one rather twisty one from the kitchen, and toddlers would need to be supervised when close to them. Outside, there are substantial grassed gardens and of course the swimming pool and tennis court. The pool is protected by a cover and is also fenced off, with a secure gate, making it safe against small children. The weather during our stay wasn't great, and we appreciated the barn, which enabled us to have barbecues with the rain pouring down outside. I don't know what the house would be like in colder weather - the floors are tiled rather than carpeted and there is a certain typically French sparseness of furnishings - but it feels like a family home rather than a rented house, which to us added to its charm and made it a perfect place for a family holiday.
Brilliant family holiday!!
Our dream holiday in France was a house where the whole family could be happy and relaxed (10 adults 2 children), enjoy sitting around and eating meals together, not too far to travel and have plenty of activities to occupy us. We found our dream holiday at La Thibaudiere where we spent a magical 2 weeks in August. The owners and gardener could not have been more helpful throughout the process and we would happily return. We didn't travel far - though a local zoo and Tours botanic gardens are definitely worth a visit. Our time was spent in 30+ temperatures, enjoying the pool, tennis courts, table tennis and snooker. The supermarket in Fondettes provided us with all we needed, but there were other larger hypermarkets not far away. There were 4 areas in and outside of the house where all 12 of us could have meals together. The house is expansive and well maintained with everything you need. Could not ask for more. Our Grandsons keep asking us when we are going back to the holiday house!!
We stayed for a week at this lovely house, there were 6 adults and lots of children, there is so much space which given the (freak) weather we had was a godsend. The facilities are excellent, the kitchen is really well equipped with everything you need. The location is perfect you can walk into the local village where there is a supermarket, pizza place and bakeries. There are many places to visit a short drive away. I would highly recommend this house for a group holiday, we had a fantastic stay and certainly hope to return.
There are no words for it! You have to see it.
We stayed in this lovely house with 12 people. We were here in connection with European Championship Badminton competitions. I wanted a house that was as comfortable as possible for my players. I can say that this has been achieved! I am in many locations in the past but I have never seen anything as beautiful as this. It was authentic, lots of space both bedrooms and kitchen etc. Super clean super equipment, fantastic kitchen just too numerous to mention. Then the whole outdoor event, crazy pool, tennis court and a barbecue place mangefiek. In short, it is impossible to describe how good and beautiful it is. Here are no words for you just book it!! I have many acquaintances and friends given by the address and go here for sure back and most probably several times. The hostess was wonderful and also that made it all off to perfect. Thanks for allowing us to be here. Joyful and kind regards Ellen from Holland
