About this location
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.
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!
