Great house for a family holiday in a sheltered setting near the attractive town of Langeais

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I wanted to share a holiday with all our children and grandchildren together, something we had not experienced before. We were twelve in number, with ages ranging from two to early seventies, so it was not an easy task to find a holiday home large enough to accommodate us all. In addition, it had to be well equipped, to have facilities and features which would suit the whole family, and to be within easy reach of shops, services and places to visit for days out.

La Tuffiere on the outskirts of Langeais in the Loire Valley fitted the bill in all these respects. It is a large stone-built house set in very attractive grounds. A key feature was the swimming pool, which was a good size and was securely fenced to prevent toddlers (and doddery grandparents!) falling in accidentally.

A special word of praise here for the gentleman who arrived without fail each morning to maintain the pool and surrounding area in excellent condition.

There was a wide range of play and sports equipment in the adjacent outbuilding to appeal to everybody, and equipment such as TV and DVD player within the house itself.

For the most part, we catered for ourselves using the extensive range of cooking utensils provided, and also the barbecue on several occasions. For the last evening, we ate at the local creperie, which was also a good way to celebrate one of our granddaughter's birthday.

Langeais itself is a very attractive small town on the Loire, west of Tours. One of the main events is the weekly Sunday market, and the local chateau is well worth a visit. The local supermarket carries a wide range of goods, but a cautionary note to holidaymakers from Britain, used to the extended shopping hours of the major supermarket chains. The opening hours for the Langeais supermarket are 9.00am to 7.30pm, with a closing time of 12noon on Sunday. Most of the local shops in the centre of Langeais close for a couple of hours in the early afternoon.

For trips out, we visited several of the chateaux for which the area is well-known, such as Villandry, Azay-le-Rideau, Chenonceau, and one or two smaller ones such as L'Islette.

All in all, it was a most enjoyable fortnight, and I thoroughly recommend this holiday home.

Beautiful house, brilliant location!

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful house, full of character which we all loved. We were a group of 6 adults and one 3 year old. Plenty of bedrooms, all of which were a very good size, and the bathrooms were well equipped.

Everywhere was cleaned to a very high standard. The gentleman who came to clean the pool and outside area early each morning was very polite and chatty.

The kitchen was very well equipped with absolutely everything you might need. The living room was basic but we spent barely any time in there as the weather was lovely so we sat out on the terrace every evening.

The pool was gorgeous. Nice and deep which we prefer. We took lots of inflatables but there were also lots in the barn. Lots of games and even a little play house which our little boy liked.

The local town is beautiful. Walkable in about 20 minutes. The chateau is stunning and we popped in to town every morning for croissants. There is a big supermarket there too. A couple of adult bikes would have been really useful to be able to use.

We don't usually return to the same place but this was idyllic so we'd definitely consider it again. Book it, you will love it too!

Fantastic gite

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday. The house itself is extremely well equipped and beautifully furnished. There were 10 of us in total (2 families), we found there was plenty of room. The outdoor space is stunning, we used to spend our time near the pool for most of the day and then go to the enormous front garden to catch the last of the sun. Langeais is a very pretty town, a pleasant 15 minute stroll from the house with some great restaurants. We visited Tours by train (we walked to the Langeais station) and drove to the Azay Le Rideau which took about 20 minutes. This is a great house for familes, our kids loved the enormous bedroom/playroom and had lots of fun playing with the dressing up costumes and other toys. Thank you very much Madame Carlier for opening your house to us.

Séjour très agréable en famille

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine superbe à Langeais. La maison est très grande avec plein de chambres différentes. Les enfants ont apprécié la piscine jour et nuit. Seulement l'arrivée était un peu compliqué parce qu'on ne savait pas le nom (La Tuffière) de la maison. L'adresse sur google n'était pas assez correcte alors qu'on a pris plusieurs tours sur la route pour la trouver enfin. Et l'ordre dans la cuisine ... il fallait un peu s'habituer. Mais bof, cela nous n'a pas empeché de cuisinier de bon repas.

Merci beaucoup pour l'agréable séjour.

maison accueillante et très agréable à vivre: de belles vacances

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine excellente à la Tuffiere sous la canicule et sur les circuits voisins.

La maison est spacieuse et très agréable à vivre

La piscine, entretenue quotidiennement, est un véritable atout à cette maison.

Aucune mauvaise surprise. Les photos correspondent à la réalité.

Une grange constitue un bel abri pour nos vélos.

Superbe jardin

Seul bémol : 1 des chambres possède une sortie directe vers l’extérieur ( très agréable et pratique) mais sa sortie intérieure se fait pas une autre chambre.

Nous y retournerions avec plaisir
