It is situated right in the middle of the Loire wine and chateaux route, 25 mins drive from Chinon and 40 mins from the centre of Tours. Local supermarkets can be found in St. Maure and L'ile Bouchard which are 12 mins away. Tours airport is a 45 minute drive with Ryan Air flights from London Stansted and Dublin; Poitiers is a 50 minute drive with Ryan Air flights from London Stansted, Dublin, Shannon and Edinburgh. The TGV station at Tours (St Pierre des Corps) has regular trains to Paris which take an hour. There is also a local station at Noyant (11 mins away) which has a direct service to Tours Centre taking 20 mins. Ferry ports at Caen and Calais (+Eurotunnel) are 3 hour and 5 hour drives respectively.

In addition to the many chateaux you can visit (Villandry, Azay le Rideau, Chenonceau, Amboise etc) there are other family attractions close by. Futuroscope theme park is a great day out for all the family (10 kms north of Poitiers - 40 minutes from the house). It is based upon multimedia, cinematographic and audio-visual techniques. There are 3D and 4D cinemas where you literally feel you are part of the film - seats moving in sync with what you're watching! There is also Puy de Fou (approx 2 hours drive away but well worth it) which is on a massive scale. There are Viking battles on a long boat, Roman gladiators charging around in chariots in a Colosseum look-alike, birds of prey display to name a few. There is also the Zoo Beauval (just over an hour from the house) which is well thought out with many animals to see. Alternatively you can just kick back and chill around the pool and enjoy the peace and quiet of the surrounding countryside.

“Fabulous house and garden and perfect base for exploring the Loire”

Reviewed 30 Aug 2016

We stayed in La Gilbardiere for a week with friends and our respective daughters. The house is well appointed, spacious and stays really cool throughout the hottest of days (it was up to 37 during our stay). The garden is huge and great for the kids and the pool is a fantastic way to cool off in the heat. There are a couple of local shops (boulangeries) about 5 minutes away so easy for the morning baguette run.4 The house itself is perfect for relaxing and easy to secure from the road, (which is a quiet rural lane) so we didn't have to worry about the kids too much. It's also a great base for exploring the Loire and getting out and about. Communication from the owners was excellent and we would happily go back there another time. Thanks Fenella!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much Anthony! I'm so glad you had a lovely holiday and were able to relax!

“A Beautiful House in Gorgeous Countryside”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2016

We loved our stay at La Gilbardiere - one of the nicest French properties we have stayed at. An elegant, comfortable and light-filled house with plenty of books, art, dvds and everything you need. The garden and pool are perfect for children (ours are aged 8 and 12 and good swimmers, NB the pool isn't fenced off) and the spacious kitchen is really well equipped. We visited Chinon, Saumur and Poitiers and had a lovely time exploring this scenic part of France. It is very peaceful and a little off the beaten track, so you do need a car. Fenella the owner was friendly and helpful and quick to respond to any queries.
