Description

Gîte Le Colvert is part of the 'Le Cormier' holiday facility which is close to the popular medieval town of Loches and is situated on the outskirts of the small village of Obterre (has a bar and small shop) on the northern tip of the beautiful 'Brenne Parc Naturel Regional', known as the “Land of a Thousand Lakes” - the whole area is quite simply a wildlife and bird-watchers paradise in this relatively unspoilt area of the Berry / South Touraine area of the Loire Valley.

It is very easy to relax in this tranquil and peaceful setting, surrounded by an abundance of wildlife and trees but with many local attractions to keep you occupied. We are ideally located for the famous chateaux of the Loire, vineyards (closest 9km), churches, museums, Futuroscope and, of course, surrounded by sleepy medieval towns. The rolling landscape makes it an ideal locality for cycling and walking enthusiasts alike.

Location description from owner

The Loire Valley region

The Loire Valley area is popular with visitors for so many reasons, whether it be the number of majestic and famous chateaux, or for its famous wines & vineyards, rolling countryside, beautiful rivers, sleepy towns and villages, wonderful eating places.... and of course its mild climate.

The verdant countryside is ideal for those who enjoy exploring the countless 'treasures' in the area whether that be on foot, bike or motor vehicle. Within a relative easy driving distance are a wealth of popular visitor attractions to be found in this beautiful part of France, the majority of roads and lanes being usually quiet with very little traffic making it an absolute pleasure not only for driving, but also for cyclists and walkers alike.

If you wish to visit some of the Chateaux, you will be spoilt for choice because there are just so many world famous ones & steeped in history - a few examples: Chambord, Chenonceau, Valencay, Villandry, Amboise or closer to us are Loches and Azay-le-Ferron (8km). Attached to the majority are wonderful gardens.

For those wishing to taste the Loire Valley wines, again the choice is immense and a visit to a Cave is not only interesting but you will normally be able to have a tasting as well.

If you hanker for more energetic activities, then there is so much to choose from again whether it be cycling, golf, swimming, canoeing, sailing, boating, horse riding, go-karting, tennis etc. The Loire Valley has something for everyone.

Preuilly sur Claise

Obterre is situated on the northern tip of Indre (Department 36 - Pays de Harmonies) within the Brenne National Park and south of the popular atmospheric market town of Loches, with its medieval Chateau, Dungeon, Church and shops.

We are situated on the outskirts of the small village but within easy reach of so many places of interest:
The Brenne Parc Naturel Regional is famous for its 1000+ lakes, making it an ideal location for bird-watchers or for those that enjoy the peace and serenity offered whether strolling or cycling. Worth visiting are ‘La Bellebouche’ with man made-beach; ‘La Gabriere’ in a splendid setting with 2 quality restaurants; the 'Maison du Parc' with visitor & information centre and nearby ‘Etang de la Mer Rouge’. Swimming, fishing, sailing pedalos and boating are available on some of the lakes and local rivers.

There are numerous quality restaurants in the locality, whether it be for an affordable 'Plat du Jour', evening meal or even for take-away pizzas.

Vineyards & Wine Tasting – local ones open to the public are in Bossay-sur-Claise (12kms) or travel a little further north to visit the famous Vouvray and so many others along the Loire river.

Local Markets – there are just so many but Loches is always worth a visit on a Saturday & Wednesday. The markets become a must for an excellent range of goods manufactured or grown in the area including local wines, fresh fruit, vegetables, cheese, meats and fish.

Golf – local 18 hole courses are at Villedieu & La Roche Posay (20kms) and then a 9 hole course at Verneuil (12kms)

Le Haute Touche (a safari type specialist zoo) is only 6kms away or there is Beauval Zoo at St Aignan, a tremendous day out for all the family.

Futuroscope (76km) – a tremendous day out for all the family and a real treat for all ages, finished off by the evening/night-time spectacular which is a must.

Go-Karting in nearby Chatillon (13kms) is superb and offers some tremendous thrills on an excellent circuit.

“Dream stay in Loire Valley”

Reviewed 2 May 2014

Last April my family and I had an unforgettable stay at le Colvert. Our holidays exceeded our expectations. The place is much more beautiful than the images on the website. It is set in a small village and to me it was the oasis of calm and tranquillity. The Gite was spotless and it was equipped in everything what was needed. Mike and Cath are wonderful people who made us feel like at home. Their pieces of advice and suggestions regarding visiting Loire Valley were very helpful. I would highly recommend le Colvert for families. We will definitely return for a holiday in the near future.

“Excellent location , brilliant hosts.”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2013

Mike and Cath are the ultimate in congenial hosts, the location was beautiful with excellent facilities and we would not hesitate in recommending a holiday at Le Cormier. Our experience was one of tranquillity and relaxation. The location is ideal for day trips to local sites of interest, beautiful scenery and charming towns. Mike and Cath are helpful and do their utmost to enhance your holiday experience with their excellent knowledge of the local area and friendly banter. If recharging your batteries is what you need, this vacation is for you!
