Fantastic Get Away
The home was fantastic. Stewart the caretaker was so very knowledgeable about the area and was a wonderful help. I highly recommend staying.
Probably the most beautiful house we’ve ever stayed in-even better than the photos!
We were overwhelmed by the beauty of the property as we arrived . The house, gardens and pool were all outstanding and clean and we felt at home instantly. We were very warmly welcomed by the caretakers and it was great having them on hand if needed at anytime. We loved chatting to the English gardeners too who were brilliant for local knowledge. Having Uk TV channels was a lifesaver with the World Cup being on, and if you want a total chill out house and aren’t too worried about masses of things to do then this is the perfect place. We had a very hot week and without AC the bedrooms get pretty warm at night but the fans in every room helped a lot. Only advice would be that for 10 adults it probably needs twice as much crockery and glasses but not a deal breaker. Would love to revisit sometime in the future.
A great location and a house with every amenity covered. Great help from Ken & Heidi the caretakers.
Booked for a family get away to celebrate a birthday. Really enjoyed the ‘country’ feel and facilities on site. Great to help ourselves to fresh eggs and produce from the garden and orchard. Not too far to surrounding towns and attractions of Futuroscope and chateaux. Found a reasonable eatery in Lencloître to sample good regional cooking. Although end of May managed to make use of the pool - a little chilly but great when the sun was out. Thoroughly recommend for a family get together or for families with young children.
Beautiful house, peaceful relaxing holiday
Loved everything about this property. We have been renting property for over 25 years and this house is definitely one of my favourites.
Lots of room, big comfortable beds with luxury linen.
Plenty of space for people to be together or find somewhere quite to read
Fabulous big pool
Fresh eggs from the chickens and veg straight from the garden
Extremely helpful and charming host who managed to make himself available without ever being intrusive
Thank you for the lovely review and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. There is nothing better than guests feeling comfortable and at home. Hopefully we will see you again in the near future.
Extremely comfortable and relaxing stay
We stayed at Le Grand Courtiou for 2 weeks this summer and it was the perfect place for a relaxing and comfortable break. The set-up really is ideal particularly if you have young children. Having the pool right outside the living area was brilliant as it meant you could keep an eye on the kids whilst popping inside for sunscreen/watermelon/rose! The pool itself was a great size with plenty of shallow end. The house is fabulous and much larger than it seems from the 'photos. Thick walls ensure that it stays cool. The beds were particularly comfortable particularly the two king size beds. The mattresses were fabulous and we actually missed the beds on returning home which is a first for us! The grounds are fabulous and were ideal for treasure hunts for the girls, and we loved gathering eggs and picking seasonal fruit and veg. The location is also great as we could do a good run on a 5km circuit in the morning and could reach some lovely interesting tourist spots such as Poitiers, Richelieu and Chinon in very little time. David, the caretaker, was really helpful and friendly. The kids loved being rowed out onto the lake (the boat seat could do with being fixed but it was good exercise for me!) and watching the frogs and dragonflies leaping and darting around.
All in all, an amazing holiday rental - highly recommended!
