Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Loches, Indre-et-Loire, Centre-Val de Loire
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 land...

About the neighbourhood
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.

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 bo...
