The Loire Valley region

Set in this idyllic area of rural france there are local markets, restaurants, shops and cafes to give you a real taste of traditional French life. Within the local area there are facilities for fishing, walking, cycling, horse riding, tennis, golf and canoeing.

It is said that “The Loire is a Queen and Kings have loved her”. Indeed the Loire has been the home of Kings since the 10th century. From the Middle Ages through the Renaissance, the Kings and Queens of the Loire Valley championed intellectual and artistic creation. The result is an endowment of accomplishments for all time in the arts and literature, as well as extraordinary examples of magnificent architecture and landscaping.

The climate in the Loire Valley is temperate with few extremes during summer months. Daytime temperatures generally hover in the 22 - 26°C range.


Our enviable location gives guests easy access for days out to Parc Beauval, Futuroscope, Valencay, Tours, Blois, the Brenne National Parc and world famous châteaux. There are magnificent 13th-century cathedrals in Chartres and Tours, as well as abbeys and mansions and charming riverside towns and villages. Other places of outstanding interest include Orléans, famous for its associations with Jeanne d’Arc, with a beautiful cathedral, the Musée des Beaux Arts and 16th-century Hôtel de Ville; and Bourges, a 15th-century town complete with old houses, museums and the Cathedral of St-Étienne. There are many local wines to taste in Anjou, Coteaux du Layon, Saumur, Touraine, Bourgueil, Vouvray, Pouilly Fumé and Sancerre.

"Great Week at The Longere"

We booked 'The Longere' for a weeks holiday in July. My wife and I have two kids aged 15 & 14 and they are always looking to be active rather than sit around a pool.

We chose 'The Longere' as it had a pool, table tennis table, pool table, darts, etc. It also had a big garden for badminton and free bikes. The swimming pool was shared, but the owners only occasionally used it, so it felt like we had it to ourselves for most of the holiday.

The owners Richard & Deborah lived next door to the Gite and were very helpful and accommodating.

The Gite itself was large and very well maintained. The rooms were large and the lounge was great for late night films and chat.

Overall it was a great week, the weather being in the 30's helped. 'The Longere' is a great place to stay to get away from it all. It is located in a very rural area, so it is around 5 minutes drive to the town, but I would recommend it to anyone.
