Description from owner
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.
PLEASE NOTE: During the High Season (1st June to 30th September), changeover day is a SATURDAY. Other times of year changeover day is flexible.
We welcome children although would point out there are limited on-site facilities to keep them fully occupied.
The 5m above ground splash pool is shared with all visitors, including some of our small 12 pitch campsite visitors as well.
Further details indoors
Le Colvert has an open plan living area comprising kitchen, dining area and lounge.
The fitted kitchen is finished in real oak, having spacious wall units and cupboard space, under cabinet lighting, 2 ring gas hob, small electric oven, microwave, refridgerator, electric kettle, cups, saucers, glasses, cutlery, pots & pans along with coffee maker and toaster.
The large real wood dining table & benches can comfortably seat up to 8 people and the adjoining lounge area has a 2 seater settee, a double bed-settee/sofa, electric convector heaters for those chilly nights, TV (via UK terrestrial channel satellite box), DVD player and Radio/CD/Cassette music system.
Modernised downstairs toilet and shower area with suspended toilet, wash hand basin/vanity unit & large mirror, plus an electric heated towel rail.
Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms - the main bedroom/sleeping area has one double bed and another double bed-settee/sofa, bedside cabinets, table lamps, chest of drawers and open clothes rail & rack. Additional ventilation can be provided by the integrated ceiling light & fan with natural light provided by a velux window (with blind) and dormer window.
The 2nd bedroom has a single bed (an additional single bed is also available) or this can be replaced with a double bed-settee if preferred, a Velux window with blind, open clothes rail & rack and an adjoining toilet with wash hand basin.
The stairs are steep which is typical of this type of property, so special care needs to be taken especially by youngsters.
Visitors receive a welcome pack containing local information, tea, coffee, sugar, milk, washing up liquid etc. (plus a bottle of wine when staying 7 nights or more).
Towels, tea towels and toilet rolls provided free of charge. Change of bedding after one week

“Dream stay in Loire Valley”
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.”
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!
“Excellent stay brilliant hosts, would recommend to everyone”
We found the Gite excellent, stayed in the two bedroom Gite, the Gite is spacious, comfortable everything you need eg teatowels and towels and cleaning products and toilet rolls are provided. Mike and Cath are excellent hosts, and are happy to help as much as they can.Very friendly and always find time for a chat. The Courtyard is lovely and afternoon tea on the patio is worth the view.We would recommend this Gite and would definitely stay here again ourselves.
