Overview

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Indre - Les Plats de Maubert

CHARMING HOUSES, HEATED POOL, in a 5-acre park. Sleeping from 2 up to 11+2

The property, with heated pool, is situated in a quiet place, 2 km from Clion.

Two houses - the Farmhouse and the Guest house - have been renovated to the better standards and are located in the same building, but separated by an ancient barn where there are some facilities like heating boiler, washing machine and so on. This allows to use the two houses as separate cottages in full privacy, or as a single residence for large families or group of friends

You will find here two tabs dealing with the global residence 'Les PLATS' and with the Farmhouse 'La FERMETTE'. If you want to rent only the Guest house, please contact the owner.

You will find in Clion all the convenience stores including the bakery, the butcher's shop, and a grocery. For medical emergencies there is a doctor's practice and a pharmacy.

Clion even has its own castle, the Château de l'Isle–Savary, at the exit of Clion on the road of Le Tranger.

8 km away, the medieval castle of Châtillon-Sur-Indre was built by Henri II Plantagenêt, Count of Anjou and King of England.

In Loches, 1/2 hour from Clion, the high-rise Donjon built during the XIth century was one of the residences of the Counts d'Anjou. The Royal lodging house was built in the XIVth century and became home of several Kings of France. Its most famous hosts were undoubtedly King Charles VII and Agnès Sorel.

Within a 1h to 1h30 drive, you will have the opportunity to visit tours and the cities of Amboise, Chinon, as well as numerous castles like Chenonceau and Chambord, and many other closer and more modest venues, although very interesting, like Bridoré, Palluau, Montrésor, Montpoupon....

Natural landscape lovers can appreciate gardens and vineyards of the loire valley, while 20 km south of Clion, the 'Parc De La Brenne' is a natural reserve full of wonders.

Among outdoor activities, we shall note in the same perimeter, numerous golf courts and equestrian clubs as well as the famous zoo of Beauval on the road of Saint-Aignan.

Secluded base to explore the Berry region

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday this summer in the main house. There’s a well-appointed kitchen with dining area, a separate dining room and a comfortable sitting room for rainy days.

We swam every day in the beautiful pool which was cleaned every day, and we found a bathing lake at Bellebouche about half an hour’s drive away.

There’s also the secluded garden for eating outside and a huge area at the front.

Michel and Chantal were the most accommodating hosts you could find.

There are supermarkets and more specialized shops in the towns about half an hour away in either direction.

We found the neighboring farm on one side sold delicious ice-cream and on the other grew and sold saffron.

There are lots of interesting villages and towns in the Berry area (which is right in the centre of France) and La Brenne nature park is in easy reach by car. This has thousands of big and small lakes with literally hundreds of bird species.

Lots to do and we recommend the property to others.

Country cottage get away

  • 5 of 5

The property description of this charming French Country House was just as described in the listing. We had 2 families (4 adults and 5 kids) stay in the two houses and we had plenty of extra space. We were lucky enough to have sunny weather and the kids enjoyed the beautiful pool. We picked cherries from the plentiful fruit trees and made a pie and fresh cherry lemonade. The property is perfect for a relaxing country get-away with family or friends. Thanks Michel and Chantel! The Priebes of Colorado USA

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a memorable stay at La Fermette!

It is a charming and peaceful place.

We enjoyed total privacy, which is a real luxury nowadays.

We rented both houses for 12 people and had plenty of space (indoor and outdoor).

The bedrooms in the main house were huge with very comfy beds, each with its own private bathroom and toilet.

Both houses are very well equiped. There was everything we needed.

Fantastic garden and swimming pool as well.

We did enjoy the pool and eating out everyday. Great outdoor furnitures: BBQ,large wooden tables and chairs.

Some very nice and typical villages and castles to visit around (such as Loches) within reasonable driving distance (20mns). Tourist guides and leaflets are available in the house to give you an idea of what there is to do in the area.

The owners Michel and Chantal had been very friendly and helpful.

We'll most definitely go back and spend another week or more at La Fermette!

We highly recommend it.

SEJOUR A CLION SUR INDRE

Tranquillité assurée dans une propriété pleine de charme, très arborée, loin du bruit, une piscine spacieuse, beaucoup d'espace que ce soit à l'extérieur comme à l'intérieur. On se sent comme chez soi. Idéal pour des vacances en famille.
