“Luxurious gite, lovely hosts and a beautiful location.”
A warm welcome was provide by our hosts, who 'went the extra mile' to make our holiday a success. The Stables is in lovely surroundings. It has everything you need, and there are loungers and a BBQ for you to use too. The laundry facilities are also excellent. The pool and 'lounging area' are fabulous and a real bonus. The local restaurant/shop (a 2 minute walk) is a well worth several visits. Hearty traditional lunches and pizza and pastas at night all at very reasonable prices. It also has fresh bread and croissants each day A very relaxing week.
“Lovely place for a relaxing holiday”
This is a lovely gite, clean, well-equipped and quiet. Angela and Derek are very welcoming and helpful and will always do their best to meet any needs. We stayed two weeks, we swam in the gorgeous pool every day, and found the water warm even when it rained for a couple of days. Being able to hire a bike on site was great, and the croissants and pizzas in the village are brilliant. All in all, a really friendly, relaxing place, and we will go back.
“Totally relaxing, lovely setup, great hosts, fab location”
Ideally situated for visiting chateaux, lovely roads for cycling. Derek and Angela made us welcome from the outset and nothing was too much trouble. We came with our 17 year old daughter who thoroughly enjoyed her stay. Loved the BBQ in the evenings and eating at the local restaurants. we will return.
“Lovely relaxing holiday”
Lovely clean gite, quiet location, but all facilities needed are available. The pool was perfect set within lovely grounds. Ping pong and badminton was enjoyed by the children and the pool was child friendly and reassuringly safe. The owners were very friendly, helpfull and informative. Loches is worth a visit as is the zoo which was approximately 40 min away. We will be returning to Le Ville Ferme.
“Excellent accomodation & facilities in rural location”
We have stayed in The Stable on 3 previous occasions for our summer holidays. We have always found the accomodation to be of a very high standard and seems to have been improved upon each time we stay. Our hosts are very friendly although not intrusive. They are always on hand for advice and help as and when required (booking of restaurants, places to visit etc). The new pool and sun terrace are a recent addition to an already wonderful holiday experience. In fact we have booked to return again this coming year (2012).
