Many specialist bicycle and walking trails are being created, with route guides available from Tourist Information Offices.Horse riding in 10 min.Hot air balloon flights on request.

"Great house, location and facilities - sadly a bitter ending"

An ideal house for a family holiday with friends and young children. Beautiful property with great facilities sand pit, swings as well as pool and tennis court. Very private setting amidst pretty coun… More

Disappointment of a houseowner. These Quests have apparently not read the H.L. website that says they pay E75,-for endcleaning and not E150,-as mentionned in their revieuw.

Indeed sadly we had to reduce E120,-for more then 8 hours of Extra cleaning like removing greece,candles,burned in on outsite diningtable,terasses,BBQ's,insite floors,oven,etc.and will do this again if necessary inspide of a bad revieuw.

We will spare you further details but ofcourse this is not a matter of making money.

These quests have obviously not read (after many requests)the house rules because during their abcence the left the main entrance gate wide open several times.

This all proves our disappointment that these quests have shown so little repect for other persons belongings.

"an enjoyable holiday in a stunning property"

We were a party of 10. two families and a grandma. There were 5 adults and 5 children - ages ranging from 14 years to 6 months. The property is a converted chateau with a pool set in acres of rolling countryside. All ages are catered for and it is an area full of wonderful chateaux to visit. Apart from the excellent pool it has a tennis court ,table tennis equipment and facilities for younger children.

"A perfect getaway with lots of possible activities"

We've spent a week at Le Bois du Chillou together with 6 our friends. The place is very comfortable and private (no neighbours) with a beautiful and well managed garden. The tennis court and swimming pool provided us with much needed sporting activities. In Chinon (which is 12 km away) there is also a bike and kayak rental. We took a half day trip down the river Vienne which was very nice. For those who get tired or do not care for sports there are so many castles around you won't be able to visit them all. And you can always just sunbathe at the pool (weather and water temperature permitting).
Mr. David, the caretaker is very friendly and helpful. We managed to communicate even though he does not speak English et je ne parle pas français ;-).
The rooms are pretty and clean. Not all bathrooms have toilettes but there is a common WC downstairs. Kitchen is well equipped and a there is also a barbecue.

If you want peace an quiet you will find it here. Sports – plenty of. Sightseeing – even more. And there is lots of cute bunnies jumping around the fields.
