Description

****This is the ideal house for large families or groups and we still have availability for school holiday weeks in Aug and Sep. Please see the calender for details and contact us for special offers*****


Set in the tranquil, wooded countryside of the Loire Valley area in France just 20 minutes north of Saumur, and 45 minutes from Tours airport, Le Bousi is an authentic, stress-free holiday retreat. Entirely private and with plenty of garden space, it is a haven for walkers, cyclists, horse-lovers and bird-watchers (with nearby birds of prey and nesting hen-harriers). The Le Mans circuit with its classic car and 24 hour races is only a 45 minute drive. Our large stone gite is ideal for families, even 2 families together.

The house boasts a private pool which has a very recently installed terrace so you can enjoy the all-day sunshine on a lounger. You don't even need to make it as far as the house for that refreshing drink, our summer kitchen has its own fridge.

“Beautiful house and settings”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2016

We have stayed at le bousi three years running and love it. It is tranquil and private apart from the occasional tractor in the fields doing their job. If there is any problem you have Mike and Maureen who live down the road and up to date we have only one small problem which was fixed. Le bousi is quite central Samaur is half an hour away with lots of places to visit in and around or you can go the other way towards tours and all the chateau along the Loire with wine tasting in both areas. Another nice place to go is le man race track and museum. A great place to go like a home from home set in the sunshine thank you Mairi and Carsten

Thank you Meg, hope we see you back next year.

“Charming rustic get away from it all farmhouse with stunning views”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2016

We stayed here during May half term and had a lovely stay. The house is full of rustic charm that you would expect from a French Farmhouse. The weather was wet and it was a real delight to have the wood burning stove going which made things super cosy. The beds are comfy and the bedrooms spacious. The grounds are lovely and the views spectacular. Nearby there is a lovely local restaurant about 5 mins drive, then plenty more slightly further afield. If you are travelling with young boys and it's a wet day the 'tank museum' was a great hit.

“Cosy, peaceful and relaxing country retreat”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2013

As a post-Christmas break, this stay served exactly the purpose we'd hoped for. The location is close enough to other towns and villages to provide a range of places to visit but isolated enough to have a very private feel about it. The house itself is charming, spacious & well maintained and ideally suited as a getaway for groups of friends. After a hectic Christmas in the UK, this was the perfect tonic and the absence of traffic noise was a real treat. Hoping to return again sometime in the summer season - the area seems ideal for cyclists!

“Highly recommend.... would go again”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2012

The photos don't do this place justice. All of us thought that the reality of the place was better than we imagined. The outdoor space with the open barn is perfect for children to play without burning in the midday sun and the BBQ cooks things well. Plenty of comfortable loungers/ chairs to sit in and relax. We worried that the pool may be on the small side but although you won't be training for the next Olympics in it it's more than adequate for cooling off and the kids loved it. Facilities nearby are in Noyant which has a well stocked intermarche and mouliherne has excellent fresh bread in the mornings which is a nice 2.5 miles bike ride away( remember to bring your panniers). Saumur is 30 mins away and has wine caves and splendid architecture and plenty of restaurants. In all I would recommend very highly as I don't often want to go to a place again but this is one that I hopefully will do in the not too distant future.
