"great vacation time at le poulailler"

Le Poulailler is a nice cottage, comfortable and conveniently equipped, located a few miles away from Loches and within short driving distance of all the major chateaux and domains of Touraine. It was for us a peaceful retreat in the woods and an ideal base camp from which to explore the Loire Valley. We would definitely recommend the place.
