Descartes, Loire Valley, Centre-Val de Loire
Nestling in rolling countryside between the Rivers Creuse and Vienne, on the border of the historic Touraine and Poitou regions, La Belardiere was a working farm until the early 1990s. Today, the barns have been carefully restored to combine both character and classic features with luxurious holiday accommodation. You can’t help but relax in this haven of peace and tranquillity and yet you are within very easy reach of numerous attractions, activities and beautiful places.

Le Verger, a spacious and luxurious 5 bedroom/4 bathroom barn conversion, is the larger of our two gites. The property is perfect for family or large group holidays.

On the ground floor, which is tiled throughout, is a large open-plan kitchen/dining area with a fully equipped kitchen and seating for up to 10 people. The lounge area is light and airy with exposed beam...

We have enjoyed two blissful stays at La Belardiere - in 2016 & 2017. For a family of 7 (2 adults, 5 children ages 11-17), it was just gorgeous. Beautiful peaceful location, wonderfully friendly hosts, clean and spacious accommodation, lovely pool and plenty of activities on site and beyond. If you are after a quiet relaxing holiday this is the...

Reviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in August 2017

We were a three-generation family group travelling from Poole - Cherbourg. By taking the 8.30 ferry out we were easily able to reach Le Verger by 19.00. Kath had organised a small hamper containing supper and breakfast for us so that we could settle in before food shopping the next day. Le Verger was purpose-designed by Kath and Roger and...

We have been lucky enough to holiday at La Belardiere twice now - and really hope we will visit again as we LOVE it! We had an amazingly relaxing week chasing chickens out of the kitchen, swimming in the pool, watching the kids in the pool, watching the kids in the pool again, feeding sheep, playing games in the garden,...

About the neighbourhood
The village of St Remy sur Creuse is 2 km away, or a picturesque 30 minutes walk through the woods. The settlement dates back a thousand years and is the site of a fascinating series of cave dwellings set into the rocks above the main village. Guided visits are available and there are a number of organised events throughout the year.

The village also boasts a newly refurbished Auberge, offering a range of traditional cuisine at very reasonable prices – or simply a refreshing drink as you watch the world go by.

The larger towns of Descartes (birthplace of philosopher Rene Descartes) and Dange St Romain (both 5 km) offer a full range of facilities including supermarkets, boulangeries, pharmacies, and banks. Bustling Descartes market, held on Sunday mornings, draws people from miles around...
Getting around
You'll need a car to get around and see the sights. The nearest station is Chatellerault, around 20 km away. There is a bus from Descartes (6 km) to Tours, though it is not very frequent. We've got lots of bikes though...
