“Everything you'd want from a gite”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We've just had a great week in the Grange, exploring this lovely part of France. Derek and Angela were great hosts, making sure we got the most from our stay and offering advice on local shops, restaurants and places of interest. Our party of 6 adults and 1 infant, ranging from 3 months to 80 years old, took full advantage of the fantastic pool, bikes for hire and ping pong table. The grange is a snug, comfortable and well equipped base from which we visited Loches, Tours, Brenne National Park, nearby Chatillon and the glorious Chateau of Chenonceau. Would definitely recommend.

“Relaxing October half term break for three generations of a family”
Reviewed 3 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Outstanding setting and facilities for luxurious and charming 3 bedroomed accommodation with log fire for cosy evenings in late October. Covered swimming pool and table tennis table provided chill out entertainment for mum, dad, two teenagers and 82 year old Grandma. Good walking (and running) through farmland and along very quiet roads from the doorstep. Within 30 minutes drive are Loches (beautiful medieval town which bustles on market day), the Chateau at Azay and the lakes area at Brenne. Just over an hour away lies the fabulous Chenonceaux Chateau and its gardens. Also within reach are the Loire Valley Chateaux. Wish we had taken bicycles as the area is ideal for such an activity. We drove back to Manchester UK in one day. Definitely recommend.

“Excellent holiday home”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The Grange is one of the nicest places that we have stayed in . The hosts could not have been more helpful and the house is well equipped and beautifully appointed. (Extremely clean too) The grounds are complete with lovely gardens and sitting areas. The pool is also an excellent addition to the complex .
All arrangements were easily made and all communications helpful and efficient.

“Peace and tranquility in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

From the moment of arrival, we enjoyed peace and quiet in a beautiful setting. The gite was of an excellent standard, spacious, fully equipped and extremely clean. The garden was immaculate, the pool was gorgeous with a cover - great for kids who hate sun lotion - and a fab, shaded terrace so that you could easily keep an eye on the kids whilst reading a book. Table tennis and bikes for hire gave additional activities. Angela and Derek were attentive whilst being discreet. We've already booked for next year!

“Another amazing holiday at La Vieille Ferme”
Reviewed 21 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

A third visit to La Vieille Farm for my husband I, first trip for our friends. As always, an amazing holiday. La Vieille Ferme is in the heart of traditional Loire countryside. Cottages are immaculate with a full range of facilities. The beautiful pool is new to us- the digger arrived on the last day of our second visit there and it really is the icing on the cake. Derek and Angela as hospitable and helpful as ever, and there is so much to do in the area. We will certainly be back and recommend la Vieille Ferme to anyone thinking of visiting the Loire Valley
