The Loire Valley region
Loire Castles: no visit to the Loire Valley would be complete without visiting some of the famous Chateaux - Chenonceau, stretching across the river Cher, considered by many to be the most beautiful of the Loire chateaux; during July and August the gardens are illuminated at night - Villandry, with its oustanding gardens.
Brenne Regional Park: we are situated on the edge of the Brenne Regional Park which covers over 160,000 hectares. Famous for its lakes, numbering over 1,000, they provide a diverse natural habitat for an abundance of wildlife.
Futuroscope theme park is close to the city of Poitiers and can be reached in around an hour from your gite.
Amboise is a charming town on the bank of the Loire. Although there is a beautiful château to visit there is also a Renaissance manor house (Clos Luce) that was the last home to Leonardo da Vinci and it contains a large number of his inventions. Close by is the Aquarium du Val de Loire which has the largest fresh water fish collection in Europe.
Loches is a medieval citadel that is only 30 minutes drive away. This exceptional town has impressive city gates and narrow cobblestone streets that lead to a château and an enormous keep that is famous for its torture chambers. On Wednesdays and Saturdays there is a large market and in July and August there will be night markets.

"Escape to the country!"
The best self catering accommodation and surroundings we have ever stayed in- Marie and Marc have thought of everything - gorgeous surroundings, plenty to do in the grounds including a lovely swimming pool.
Nothing is too much trouble - Marie and Marc are the perfect hosts and instantly you arrive you feel cared for- even down to a welcome board and some local produce and a bottle of wine!
The area is very rural but lovely places to visit- the most quaint and beautiful village in France, a river with a small beach, historic town and cycling along quiet roads experiencing French country life- exquisite - all the family had a fantastic time from age 2 to 51, we will definitely come again. Missing it so much. Thank you so much Marie and Marc for sharing your special part of France :)

"Ideal relaxing holiday"
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel like welcome friends by Marc and Marie. The lovely blackboard welcoming us, the package of local produce and the tour all signalled the start of us feeling able to relax and enjoy family time together.
Peuplier is a lovely property. Generous in space indoors for 6, well equipped with quality fixtures and equipment and a private outdoor eating area with sun loungers we made lots of use of well into the evening. Watching the martins/swallows (we don' know as not birdwatchers) sweep across the spacious lawns in the evening whilst drinking wine together after a lovely meal was a such a nice way to spend a warm evening.
Our group was made up of 2 parents, 2 children (9 & 5) and 2 grandparents. We made great use as a family of the pool (open 10am to 8pm), the table tennis, boules, play areas and the games room. They have quite a library of English novels in a range of styles which you are free to use and gave a great excuse to read a novel we'd heard of but never read, whilst laying on the sun lounger.
From here we visited several places locally, Loches was a surprising highlight and kayaking at Lake Bellebouche, both 30 minutes away. Chenonceau and Amboise were about an hour away. Marie was able to give us lots of information about the local area and will kindly make bookings for restaurants etc if your French isn't up to it.
Overall it was a wonderful place to switch off, relax and spend some time together with the family without everyday pressures or distractions. Peaceful,calm and relaxing but with something for all the family. So much so that we have already booked to return next year.

"Fabulous Property - you just won't want to leave!"
Villa Peuplier is an outstanding villa situated on a beautiful property.
Having stayed in a number of rental properties across Europe, this was without doubt the best.
The Property is immaculate with lots of scope for children to enjoy a fun filled, safe and carefree holiday. The thoughtful touches such as the playroom, bicycles and extensive library of books and DVDs just made our stay extra special.
The pool was heated to a perfect temperature and the retractable cover means it is an option even when the weather isn't so good.
Marc and Marie were first class hosts providing all the help and guidance we could possibly ask for.

"Wonderful rural gites, beautifully refurbished, with all the amenities a family could need."
We stayed in the 3 bedroom Peuplier gite. It has been recently and very tastefully refurbished. It was warm, comfortable and spacious. Very comfy beds. TV with DVD player, and satellite access to UK TV; dishwasher; microwave, well-stocked with kitchen wares, and two showers and a bath. Lovely, private dining patio, with a view over the extensive grounds. The covered swimming pool was perfect for our 7 and 9 year olds, and there are swings, table-tennis, swingball, boule piste and badminton nets. And hugely warm welcome from the hosts, who were happy to help with any queries. The location is rural, so a car is required (30m to Loches and an hour to Tours), but it's gloriously peaceful and wonderfully relaxing. We'd gladly return.

Marc and Marie have created the most idyllic luxurious getaway in the Loire Valley. Their gites are situated in a most tranquil area and are exceptionally well kitted out. The covered/indoor pool is clean and warm enough to use in early spring.
We spent three nights there in April 2014 with our three young boys. The boys absolutely loved the place, there was plenty to do, swimming, outdoor sports and even free bikes on site.
if you are on a driving holiday in France then this is a place to stop for a few days. The Loire valley and all of its destinations are on the doorstep but what really makes this place stand out is the friendly welcome and the little luxury touches.

"Another great holiday at Loire Luxury Gites!"
Our 3rd stay in Peuplier was as good as the first......and we will be back soon. Marie & Marc can't do enough for you and they are the perfect hosts. Excellent facilities all round and a good base from which to explore the Loire Valley. Peuplier is the best gite we've every stayed in, particularly due to its private aspects from the rest of the site. Good supermarket 10mins away, which is open till 7pm Mon-Sat and for 3hrs on Sunday morning! Love this place and can't wait to return.....so relaxing & great for the kids.

"This is a fantastic place and the hospitality of the owners who live on the site was brilliant."

"Fantastic Holiday and Great Location!!"
Loire Luxury Gites is outstanding and Marie & Marc, your hosts, are so welcoming, conscientious and attentive. The gites are in top order and the facilities are excellent (especially the pool). This was our second stay here and we've already booked again for next year. The other gites are occupied when we stay, as they are throughout most of the summer, so our 11yr old daughter has plenty of other kids to play around with when we're on site. Chattillon, the small town just 5mins away, has a large Intermarche & petrol station, which is open every day till 7pm & even opens for 3hrs on Sunday mornings. There are lots & lots of places to visit, including the largest nearby town of Loches (Sat & Wed market is a must, with numerous restaurants for lunch). I would highly recommend Loire Luxury Gites - the only downside being that you have to go home at some stage!

"Une merveilleuse semaine de détente dans un cadre privilégié"
Marc et Marie nous ont accueilli avec beaucoup de chaleur et d'attention. Tout dans ce magnifique domaine a rendu notre séjour "relaxing" : jeux, piscine couverte et chauffée idéale, barbecue a disposition, vélos, conseils de ballades, échanges avec les autres vacanciers et j'en passe. Nous sommes vraiment ravis par ces vacances. Encore merci et à bientôt !

"Excellent gite & outstanding service from very attentive hosts"
We were extremely impressed with all aspects of the accommodation, the location & the conscientious & attentive hosts. We were warmly greeted & appreciated the welcome pack in the spotlessly clean gite. The large pool & sunbeds were clean & well-maintained, & the games area was a definite asset. The calm & beautiful rural surroundings were relaxing & the high specification of the property, including washing machines, satellite TV & cooking facilities, contributed to an extremely enjoyable holiday. We felt confident & secure at all times knowing that the hosts were eager to please & help their guests. We would thoroughly recommend this vacation rental without hesitation.
