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.

"Luxurious gite, lovely hosts and a beautiful location."
A warm welcome was provide by our hosts, who 'went the extra mile' to make our holiday a success.
The Stables is in lovely surroundings. It has everything you need, and there are loungers and a BBQ for you to use too. The laundry facilities are also excellent. The pool and 'lounging area' are fabulous and a real bonus.
The local restaurant/shop (a 2 minute walk) is a well worth several visits. Hearty traditional lunches and pizza and pastas at night all at very reasonable prices. It also has fresh bread and croissants each day
A very relaxing week.

"Lovely place for a relaxing holiday"
This is a lovely gite, clean, well-equipped and quiet. Angela and Derek are very welcoming and helpful and will always do their best to meet any needs. We stayed two weeks, we swam in the gorgeous pool every day, and found the water warm even when it rained for a couple of days. Being able to hire a bike on site was great, and the croissants and pizzas in the village are brilliant. All in all, a really friendly, relaxing place, and we will go back.
