The Loire Valley region

The Loire Valley is known as the Garden of France. Throughout time, the kings of France had beautiful chateaux built - world-famous castles, such as Amboise, Chambord, Villandry, Valencay, Chenonceau, Chinon and Loches – all within easy driving distance.

The climate is mild with gently rolling valleys and slow flowing rivers - the long settled weather means that not only summer, but spring and autumn are also beautiful times to visit

A cultural landscape of great beauty - historic towns and medieval villages, splendid gardens, local vineyards, and excellent farm produce from the many local markets.

Loire wines are famous worldwide (Sancerre, Valencay, Montlouis, Vouvray, Chinon, Saumur to name but a few!) Eating in this area of France is a dream!

An outstanding area of natural beauty for nature lovers, bird watchers, walkers and cyclists – the Brenne National Park with its 1000 lakes is on the doorstep!

There are also plenty of outdoor pursuits – golf, cycling, tennis, canoeing, kayaking, horse riding, fishing and swimming.

Loches

Cléré du Bois is a tranquil, unspoilt village on the borders of the Brenne Regional Park.

2 minutes walk from the property is the bakery for fresh bread and croissants, shop for essential supplies and the bar and restaurant with sun terrace, which serves both traditional French cuisine and pizzas.

The location provides an ideal base from which to explore the countryside, the châteaux, the Brenne Regional park with over 1000 lakes, wildlife walks and bird watching reserves.

10 minutes drive to the medieval town of Chatillon-sur-Indre with all amenities, including tennis courts and 20 minutes to historic Loches with its stunning chateau and excellent twice weekly market of local produce.

Quiet, country roads and gentle rolling countryside, ideal for walking, cycling and touring the beautiful market towns, villages and local vineyards.

"A fantastic and truly relaxing holiday - vive le grange!"

This was our long awaited 25th Wedding Anniversary holiday and the best holiday we have ever had in France. Beautiful quiet location, Excellent Gite,Great facilities, fabulous places to visit and super owners. Angela and Derek made the the holiday experience from inquiry to leaving stress free. They answered all our questions and their recommendations for trips and eateries where "on the money". The Grange had everything in it you could want and with the swimming pool and bikes available to complete the holiday experience. We have already recommended this holiday destination and Gites and we are booking again. Can't recommend highly enough!

"A great discovery"

From our first dealings with Angela we realised that this was a professionally run Gite. The initial promptness and enthusiasm to accommodate was to be reflected in the service we received months later from her and Derek at their wonderful farm. The quality of the property was top class with every conceivable facility available within the house and a great range of external options. Just a wonderful place run by lovely people. Go there!!!

"Fabulous!"

Our stay in The Grange was excellent , with first class accommodation, friendly and helpful Hosts in Angela and Derek, beautiful gardens , superb indoor pool and every other kind of facillity you could think of to make a wonderful , relaxing holiday.
The village is quaint and has a lovely Restaurant serving typical French meals alongside its own Boulangerie and small Epicerie.
The area is beautiful with large and small Chateaux within easy reach ,all of which were recommended by Angela and Derek along with other helpful advice to make our stay so pleasant.
We were 3 couples so having all en-suites to the bedrooms was a real bonus.
The week went far too quickly and we were all very sad to be leaving.
We wish Angela and Derek continued success for the future.

"Fab Gite, Fab Holiday."

Angela and Derek were the perfect hosts, friendly and helpful.
There are 4 Gites " on site " and it was nice to be able to chat with the other holidaymakers staying there with us. Only a short walk away was a Bakery for our fresh bread and croissants in the mornings. What a treat. Francoise who runs it also serves Lunch/Dinner in the Restaurant adjoining. She is a star, running round, taking orders, serving and of course cooking your meal which was excellent.
Angela suggested several places for us to visit including Amboise to see Chateau du Clos Luce Parc Leonardo da Vinci. Good choice and what an experience. Loches is well worth going to too..
Superb Intermarche Supermarket in the next village, just a short drive away.
Hope you enjoy your holiday in the Grange as much as we did, thanks to Angela and Derek.
