Location description from owner

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region

Ideal for a scenic cycling holiday, the local area is quiet contryside dotted with villages and towns. Places to visit in the aras include:

Montreil-Bellay: Charming town 1/2 hrs drive away set by the river. Excellent chateau to visit offering tours in English, picnic by the river and view the ancient Medieval town wall. It is a great place to visit.


Rochmenier: 1/2 hrs drive to visit the old Trogolodyte village which is well worth a visit. The cave homes are preserved as a museum - fascinating for all ages. On the way back, visit the Zoo at Doue La Fountaine

Villandry: Beautiful chateau with breath-taking gardens that are famous throughout the world.

Fontevraud: Amazing architecture to be found at the Abbey at Fontevraud, famed for being the burial place of Richard Coeur de Lion ( the Lion Heart himself) and full of French and English History. Nearby Puy de Fou boasts famous medieval style son et lumiere shows which will delight any audience.

Futuroscope: Well worth just over an hours drive to Poitiers, Futuroscope is the thinking man/woman/childs answer to Dinseyland. Lots to see and try and discover.

Saumur, Angers, Chinon: These famous French chateaux towns all all within a 75 minute drive and each is brimming with history and a variety things to see and do; museums, mushroom farms and art gallerys to name but a few!

Argenton-les-Vallees

Guests can cycle to one of the nearby villages for fresh baguette and croissants every morning, or in the evenings to a bar or local restaurant.

Argenton-Chateau is the nearest town (5 mins drive) and has all basic neccessities (small selection of shops) along with a large open air swimming pool and a lake where you can go out on a pedalo. The meandering streets of the town make for a very pleasant afternoon stroll and at dusk there are often otters to be seen around the 'Lac'.

Bressuire is a 15 minute drive and offers a more than adequate selection of supermarkets, restaurants, a town centre market every Tuesday and some wonderful patisseries! There is an old chateau here too, and a bizarre but fantastic antiques and oddities store.

Local vineyards offer wine tasting all year round - we are happy to recommend the best places for a 'degustation'. Try one or two different wines and buy bottles direct from the producer.

“One of our best holidays”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2012

We had a family holiday at Le Chene, there were nine of us all together and there was plenty of room for us all without feeling like you had no space of your own. The gite was very comfortable and the grounds were just as good. Paul and Charlotte (the owners) are very welcoming and helpful with suggestions of places to go and visit. There are plenty of activities and places to see for both adults and children. We went to many places with the children and spent time at the gite. We had a few lazy hours watching some dvd's on some very comfy sofa's and had a few afternoons using the archery equipment. The two children (7 and 9) enjoyed feeding the chickens and learning to play uno (one of the many games around to play). We all enjoyed used of the pool on a daily basis. We made use of the bikes available and took a few bike rides around the near area, had plenty of BBq's looking out onto a wonderful view. I am often asked by the children 'when are we going back to France?' as they and we all had such a good time. We hope to visit again soon.
