Property Description

This 19th century barn has been renovated to a good standard with great attention to detail and features exposed beams, cathedral ceiling and tiled floors. The property is furnished with elegant antiques mixed with rustic pieces and the under-floor heating and large woodburner make it wonderful for out of season breaks. There is also a superb heated, enclosed, outdoor swimming pool with a large sunny terrace. The discreet owners who also offer chambres d’hôtes in their house are happy to help. This region of the Loire Valley offers endless possibilities for visiting famous châteaux and vineyards, as well as the troglodyte caves. A wealth of day trips can be enjoyed nearby, including Paris, only 50 minutes away by train (TGV) from the cathedral city of Tours. Poitiers with the dazzling Futuroscope theme park is ideal for all the family. The surrounding countryside is a haven for walking and cycling and an 18 hole golf course is available at famous Cheverny.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Very helpful and accommodating owners. Aug 2012.
  2. We had a fantastic family holiday, property was amazing, hosts were fantastic. The property was peaceful and you would need a car if you want to go out and visit local attractions. There is a safari train which is 10 mins by car and worth a visit for families, it was also good value. Plenty of leaflets available with lots to do, we even visited Tintin’s house! Supermarkets 15 mins away. We went in Oct so unfortunately the heated pool was not available, but this would be excellent in the summer months. La Picardierre comes highly recommended!! Oct 2011.
  3. La Picardiere is excellently sited for easy reach to most of the most stunning sites on the Loire. Amboise is the closest largest town which is charming with very good restaurants and cafes. The property itself is spacious with a lovely airy main room. My children loved the swimming pool and spent a good couple of hours everyday at the end of the day in it. The hosts are very friendly although do not expect too much English but will help all they can. Aug 2011.
  4. Great swimming pool. Welcoming and discreet owners. Spacious accommodation, but only one loo and separate bathroom, which would be limiting for more than three adults. Peaceful rural setting. May 2011.
  5. A lovely converted barn, plenty of space and very nice owners. Very well situated to visit Chateaux of the Loire, also extremely easy to access the motorway coming down from Caen. The pool was extremely attractive there were quite a lot of other users. Aug 2009.
  6. The owners were excellent hosts. The property is lovely and very close to beautiful countryside, chateaux, the Loire and everything that area has to offer. Excellent! April 2009.
