Very Good

“Idyllic French retreat”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2013

It is with a degree of expectation that you book and arrange a holiday we were not disappointed. Photographs and reviews do not do this setting justice. Angela and Derek are the most hospitable of hosts and go out of their way to ensure that your stay is memorable for the right reasons. There was just the right amount of activity around the gite, the accommodation well appointed and the weather perfect. Do get out and about, explore the countryside, the small towns and villages and eat with the local people. You will have a great time.

“A must place to stay in the Loire!”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2013

Thank you so much Angela and Derek for the most fantastic location to stay for our first week in the Loire Valley. The location is perfect. Very easy to travel to Loches, Tours, Chenonceau, Amboise and more. Beautiful countryside surrounded by fields of sunflowers as far as the eye can see. The hosts were fantastic. So friendly, and nothing was too much trouble. The farm buildings have been restored to the highest quality, and so much is made available for guests to make your stay extra special - BBQ's, bikes, pool, badminton net, table tennis table and much more. We will certainly be back to stay, and will recommended unreservedly to friends and family. It is a gem of a place in the heart of the Loire.

Owner's reply: We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday and look forward to welcoming you back on a future occasion.

“Excellent accommodation, relaxing location, welcoming hosts”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2012

We are regular visitors to France. The Diary lived up to all our expectations. Angela and Derek were the most friendly and hospitable hosts. Excellent area for cycling, great pool and table tennis facilities. Gite very clean and well equipped. Local Boulangerie/restaurant a must. Highly recommended.

“Wonderful! superbly maintained gite, excellent pool, will certainly return!”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2012

Excellent gite with excellent facilities, lots of great places to visit in surrounding area for both young and old. Thanks again Derek and Angela, you made us feel very welcome.

“It must be good if a teenager wants to rush back here from Euro Disney”

Reviewed 7 Feb 2012

To be honest France was way down on my list of holiday destination, but my partner (now wife) wanted to see the château of the Loire Valley. I’m so glad she persuaded me. We arrived just as it was getting dark to a very welcome bottle of wine supplied by Angela & Derek and a quick tour around the Dairy in which we were staying. The next morning we were shown around the rest of the property which was so well kept. It was a home from home. UK electric sockets, UK Satellite TV, DVDs/Videos & books. There was even wifi which kept Laura the 16 year old happy with her iPad. The pool was very welcome in the afternoons when we stayed close to the gite as the weather was so good and sunny with high temperatures which we found out was common for the time of year and the area. The village of Cléré du Bois is quite small but we found 2 supermarkets 10 min drive away in Châtillon-sur-Indre that we passed most days and which covered all our needs. We were surprised as to how quite the whole area was the villages seemed empty and the roads were straight with little traffic (but you still had to be aware of the odd rogue driver who think they own the roads). Sat Nav I feel is a must for the area as there are so many places to visit and not all of them are in the guide books as we passed many château and picturesque areas on our way to sites we knew about. The countryside, at the time we were there, seemed to change from day to day. Green fields slowly turned yellow as sunflowers bloomed. Spotting poppies in the cornfields became my obsession (good job for straight roads). Around the middle of the 2 weeks we were there we took the 16 year old to Euro Disney for a couple of nights. But by the 2nd night we all could not wait to get back to the gite. All in all, a fantastic holiday with great amenities and attentive hosts. There are not many places we would go back to but the Dominican Republic is one and Angela & Derek’s gite is another. Well recommended.

“A haven of peace”

Reviewed 6 Feb 2012

We spent a glorious week in la laiterie in the idyllic surroundings of La Vieille Ferme. Angela and Derek were wonderful hosts and were on hand for advice and any problems. However, the gite was well equipped and spotlessly clean. We will be returning.

“A little piece of heaven”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2011

This is one of the loveliest gites that we have stayed in. The village is very pretty and has the welcome addition of a bar / restaurant . The gardens are beautifully kept and there is a small pool The gite was well equipped and very comfortable . The owners provide BBQ and garden equipment including fresh herbs for the use of guests . The log fire was welcome in the evenings. The hosts were helpful in every way , from advice on the local area to restaurant bookings. The small pool has now been replaced by a large covered pool.
