Description from owner


Superbly renovated and equipped, handicapped friendly and with not 1, not 2 but 3 private walled terraces, Les Ecuries definitely has all you need to get the most from your holiday!

Upstairs there are two bedrooms, a large double with its own seating area and another large bedroom with three single beds. Each bedroom has its own air conditioning unit. There is a large family sized bathroom with shower, toilet and heater.

Downstairs there is large double bedroom and a large wet room with non-slip tiles, a thermostatic shower, a disabled toilet, grab rails and heater.

In the open plan living area the lounge has comfortable seating for seven people and is fitted with UK and French satellite TV, music centre, DVD player. The dining area has a large table seating seven and the kitchen is very well equipped with all modern conveniences including a dishwasher and washing machine.

There are French doors opening out onto your own private walled terraced areas. The first terrace is decked and set at the same level as the lounge, to provide easy wheelchair access, and has a barbecue, table, chairs and a pergola. The second is a south facing terrace with sun loungers that also provides direct viewing access to the pool for the mobility impaired. The third is a courtyard terrace which is a quiet, hard landscaped area planted with bananas, cannas and other exotics. It has a shady pergola and has table and chairs to dine out in the evening and catch the last rays of the sun.

Pathways lead to the Le Bouchet gardens and to a sun bathing area with a second entry to the pool.

Le Bouchet is close to some of the most beautiful and impressive chateaux, such as Chenonceau and the captivating Villandry, and is the ideal location for your holiday, whether you want to chill out and relax by our heated pool or get out to see more of what our wonderful region has to offer.

With the historic towns of Loches, Tours and Poitiers and the fantastic Futuroscope theme park all within easy reach, you are bound to find plenty to see and do for all ages.

A couple of minutes away is the lively town of Descartes which has restaurants and bars and can provide for all your holiday needs with supermarkets, chemists, butchers, bakeries and a Sunday market selling everything from fish to flowers!

For the more active amongst you there is a water park, canoeing, golf, horse riding, sailing, horse racing locally and birdwatching in the Brenne National Park.

Recent customer reviews include:

"Fantastic location, peaceful yet only a walk to the boulangerie and amenities of Descartes. There are plenty of chateaux within driving distance and we could have easily found things to do for a 2-week stay!"

"There was a wealth of local information and places to visits in the gite. The personal touch from both of you was exceptional and made us feel very welcome. I would love to return year after year with so many places to visit."

"We've had a wonderful stay here at Le Bouchet. It's been like home from home, very comfortable and extremely well equipped. Our children (0-5 1/2 yrs) have loved the pool as have we! Sue and Trevor have been lovely hosts - thank you for all your hard work, you've made this a fantastic place for a holiday!"

"Trevor and Sue made us very welcome and pointed us in the right direction when we needed help (Thank you). Great swimming pool; the children spent a large amount of time in it!! See you again."

"At Le Bouchet, you really feel like you are staying in the middle of nowhere. Sitting in the garden, looking at the stars and listening to the frog chorus and grasshoppers is such an amazing way to relax. However, Descartes, the local town, is less that five minutes drive away and has everything you might need (including three supermarkets). In this part of France there are old towns, chateaux, lakes, forests, canoes, bicycles to hire, animals parks and a fabulous theme park (Futuroscope). They are all easily accesible on largely empty roads with beautiful fields all around."

"Trevor and Sue are very good hosts. They were on hand whenever we needed help and advice. They made it easy for our party, of non-fluent French speakers, to have a superb holiday. Our children enjoyed meeting their goats, dogs and chickens, and on one occasion a praying mantis! I can't recommend this house highly enough."

Very Good

“Perfect location if you are looking for somewhere to unwind in complete peace and quiet”

Reviewed 19 Sep 2018

The gite is extremely well equipped with everything anyone could possibly need to make their stay comfortable. Cleverly designed, and most attractive, garden with lots of different areas and an abundance of tables, chairs and sunbeds. The pool is sparklingly clear and a really good size. Just one drawback, which it would be impossible to alter, is that it wouldn't be accessible for anyone with real mobility issues owing to the only access being the ladders on the sides. The small town of Descartes is conveniently near, little hamlets in the countryside nearby and the chateaux of the Loire area are not that far away. Having the owners nearby was a big plus, not only for a chat but also to answer any questions or give advice.

Great place to stay, every thing you need has been provided, nice clean place well looked after and helpful owners always happy to help.

“Five Star Stay”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2015

A little piece of heaven- an extremely well appointed gite with beautiful gardens, wildlife- Sue and Trevor are the most welcoming and helpful hosts. There is something for everyone here- our personal area contained several relaxing seating, lounging and eating areas for a weary mum and dad and grandparents, our grandchildren loved feeding the goats, swimming in the pool and playing in the play area and for me, as a keen photographer, some lovely views in the locale. Thank you Sue and Trevor for a stunning experience.

“The total package for a relaxing get away”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2015

Plenty of space within the gite. Large outdoor area with lovely well tended garden and well maintained pool with appropriate safety measures in place. Really helpful hosts. Nearby town very quaint.

“Excellent Vacation”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2014

We've been to this area before. This was by far the best and most well equipped Gite we have been in. The owners were extremely helpful and made our stay great. The entire property location is very well maintained with gardens and private terraces. The locale is very rural so don't expect a raucous night life. However if you are after total relaxation this is the place. The countryside is beautiful and the food and wine is great. It's obvious that the region is suffering from the economic downturn though this highlighted the hospitality of the local people. There is plenty to do around the area and you can pick how much or how little you want to do. The support of the owners to all our needs made it a fantastic trouble free rest. Can't recommend this place highly enough.
