Beautiful house in a great location. We loved it and hope to return next year. Perfect for the kids who spent most of their time in the pool.

“Lovely Loire”
Reviewed 25 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We enjoyed our stay so much at Le Bois du Chillou. The house was comfortable, well-appointed and extremely peaceful. What a joy to come back to this property each day after chateau hopping. Kari and Bas have thought of everything. I would recommend this property to anyone looking to get away from it all. You wouldn't even have to leave in order to feel as if you had had a wonderful holiday. Hope to return some day!

“A superb property in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

This is the second time we have stayed at Le Bois du Chillou, having spent a week there last summer. We were determined to stay a little longer this time to explore the area and the stunning views around the Loire. That never really happened because the house is so peaceful and in such a beautiful setting that you can't help but want to make the most of the amenities. Plenty to keep the kids occupied, a crystal clear swimming pool with inflatables, tennis court complete with racquets and balls in abundance and no neighbours so the kids can make as much noise as they want without disturbing anyone. Nothing was too much trouble for Kari, the owner, who is delightful. Chinon itself is a beautiful medieval town with plenty of good, reasonably priced restaurants and the fortress is a must for a visit. Yes we will definitely visit again and thoroughly recommend for extended families travelling with grandparents.

“A beautiful property in the Loire Valley”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This is a beautiful property in the lovely Loire Valley.
The property is very quiet and is ideal for both young and old alike.
The accommodation is very comfortable and spacious. Very well equipped with everything you may need to make your stay perfect.
Lots of thought has been taken for families with both young and older children. Plenty of toys and books for younger children and a safe outside play area. Tennis, table tennis and games for older children and of course the superb pool for everyone.
A very enjoyable, relaxing holiday.

“A beautiful, peaceful and and generously equipped property for all the family.”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The property is set amongst field - including sunflowers when we stayed. The rental accommodation is arranged around the pool, allowing one to gaze at the little fairytale chateau, borders of lavender, roses, aged sculptures etc etc.

The accommodation itself is beautifully presented - stylish with lots of little touches - flowers, candles, blankets for wrapping oneself in if the evening is chilly etc - but all very comfortable and relaxed. There are plenty of chairs, tables, recliners, cushions etc for outside.

The property is very generously equipped in most respects - crockery, kitchen equipment etc - more so than most rental properties. Tennis, table tennis and other games equipment is provided. The pool is delightful, with an electronic cover to keep it warm at night.

The poolside room, with its ensuite, is useful for someone who can't manage stairs.

The location is good - a short drive to Chinon, with many chateaux and villages within easy reach.

“Peaceful, idyllic, and perfect for a large family”

person found this review helpful

This was our second trip to Le Bois Du Chillou with our extended family, and I am quite sure we will be back again. It is the most beautiful property, relaxing, peaceful and just ideal for a large family or group of friends - perfectly secluded so that you can be as quiet as you wish, but if you like your music a little louder, there is no-one close enough to mind. The pool is lovely; the accommodation is comfortable, flexible and family-friendly. Chinon is a lovely town, with plenty of vineyards to visit nearby, for those who are so inclined. Highly recommended!
