Site Info

La Vieille Ferme sits on the edge of the petit village of Cléré-du-Bois, with views of the Loire countryside on one side and the village church and centre on the other. The village shop/bar/restaurant is just 100m away

The gites are all well furnished with English/French TV, WiFi, HiFi, fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher, fresh linen and bath towels on arrival and traditional log burning fires for cosy evenings with wine and cheese!

The grounds also provide all that is needed with a large sun terrace to relax by the pool, sports equipment including bikes, table tennis, football goals, badminton and of course, French boules - there is a covered barn with BBQ area and and a wash room with a communal washing machine freely available

The swimming pool is heated and covered making it suitable for all weathers and seasons. The versatile cover gives the best of all worlds as it can be retracted along the sides to reveal the countryside views and give an open air feel in the summer. The pool has a child safe gate at all times and the bottom surround panels can be kept in place whilst higher panels are opened to keep a safe barrier for young children if needed. There is a jet stream in the pool to ‘swim against the tide’!
