Further details indoors

A converted barn, all rooms in the Gite are very spacious.

The bedroom configuration is a double and single bed in each of the bedrooms which are both en-suite.

the Kitchen/ dining area gives more than ample space and there are all the facilities for your requirements.

The kitchen leads out to your private patio area at the back , ideal for dining al -fresco or having a barbecue. or just lounge about and soak up the sun The sitting room area gives an ideal area to read or watch TV. there is satellite reception giving a number of UK channels. The sitting room is spacious and well furnished, and very comfortable.

The fact that we have many guests who return to us each year, and some twice a year is recomendation alone and pride for us here at La Huttiere

Further details outdoors

Outside the Gite where you have your own private patio and garden area, is great to sit out on the lovely summer evenings and watch the magnificent sun sets, over acres of un-spoilt country side. Quite often you can spot the many types of wild deer, and wild boar, cross from one field to another,. and of course there are the many types of birds, some which are not resident in the UK so quite exciting to see them here.. Also in the evenings you can hear the different types of owl calling to each other. and in the mornings woodpeckers are abundant

There are many birds of prey of all sizes to be seen. We do not have grey squirrels so the red squirrel is always busy in the wooded area.We have approx 18 acres of land and a wooded area , which makes a nice walk.

There is a table tennis table for the energetic, and a plunge pool to cool down when needed ! We also have cycles which you are most welcome to use

Although we are very rural , it is only a few minutes drive to the Chateau and market town of Le Lude and you do not have to worry about parking, as there is a very large area to park your car in front of the Gite.

Further details

We like to keep the changeover days to each Saturday which makes it easier for all

No smoking in the Gite please, but no problem outside.

The times of arrival and departure are : Arrive from 3.00 pm onwards, and depart by 10.00 am ( ish ! )

This allows the Gite to be fully serviced and ready for your arrival.

About this location

The Pays de la Loire region

The Loire Valley region is a most beautiful part of France, with the picturesque and historic Chateaux -Churches and Cathedrals which are innumerable in the area.

Together being a world heritage area, the Loire river offers a host of wildlife to be seen. We are situated mid-way between Tours and Le Mans both Cities have a medievel part of the town together with breathtaking Cathedrals, and of course, all over the area there are pretty little villages to visit, and nearly all offer typically French home made refreshments in their local cafe/restaurants, and patisseries, not forgetting the acres of vineyards for your wine tasting excursions

The weather in this part of France is usually 5 degrees warmer than that of the UK and generally more sunshine. Apart from the historic buildings and places to go, there are many more modern places of interest, such as theme parks, botanical gardens and a host of various attractions etc etc. - all too many to mention, you will not have time to fit it all in one visit to La Huttiere !


The town of Le Lude is approx a five minute drive from the Gite, and offers all that you may need, as there is a large supermarket,, together with various other shops . There are many bars and restaurants of all types to suit all needs, offering good French fayre together with many boulangeries where you will get crusty French sticks and of course, the mouth watering pastries!

Being on the Loire river, together with the many lakes, fishing is always a favourite hobby. and for the Golfers there is a famous and well renowned golf course at Bauge which is approx a twenty minutes from the Gite.

Ther are many local horse riding stables The world famous Cadre Noire are at Saumur - 40 mins away and they have regular events and shows. The area is excellent for walkers, with beautiful scenery And we are only a twenty minute drive from the famous La Fleche Zoo, with their daily shows which makes a great day out for all ages - highly recommended.!

Our own village of Chigne ( two minutes drive ) boasts a superb restaurant where you can get a full five course lunch including wine for just 11 euros ! - not to be missed ( you can also get your morning French stick here )

"Location, Location, Location! Tranquil, Scenic, Welcoming Gite"

As we headed up the drive, our eldest daughter said "1-0 to dad"!
A great choice, very rural, less than 20minutes to nearest town of Le Lude and around 25mins to La Fleche, taking the rural route through Chigne past the Zoo.

On arrival we found a very welcome 'welcome basket' of goods. The Gite, its ammenities and the welcome were excellent. Advice on local areas & hand drawn maps were always available as required.

Skylights, sleeping with the stars, the pool...all kept the family entertained. We have 2 girls, 8 & 15 and we all greatly enjoyed the stay and the extremely relaxing location.

La Fleche is a great town to visit. The weekly market was the best of those we visited covering several streets. The river Loire is picturesque, with many fisherman on the banks with shoals of Roach, Carp and other fish.

Within this town, there is a large lake with a superb beach, play area and pedallo's. This is Les lacs de la Monnerie. Again this has a fishing lake alongside for anglers. The water was very clear, the man made beach was equally clean.

The weather during our stay was exquisite, with not a cloud seen for several days. Wildlife around the Gite included Deer, Lizards, Woodpeckers.

Of the two weeks we spent in France, this week was the highlight and will definetly feature in discussions for future years.

From our initial contact regards a booking, help, advice and directions were superb. The drive from Calais was very simple.
