Description

Set in large grounds with a wooded area and enjoying a private swimming pool, this lovely detached house provides a restful retreat.

Tucked away from the bustle of the picturesque town centre of Bourgueil, La Garenne is a picture postcard in its own right. Set in a large garden with wooded area, this detached holiday house has a private pool and sunny terrace just yards from the door. Constructed from the local limestone, this charming holiday property captures the essence of the Loire region, famed for its wines and magnificent châteaux. Although La Garenne offers modern comforts, its owners have been careful to retain its original features such as the bread oven and beams. The pretty town of Bourgueil offers all amenities and a lively weekly market, and nearby are some of the finest châteaux in France including Villandry Castle (35km away). Saumur, Chinon and Azay-le-Rideau are all within a short drive. Also nearby is the River Loire where you can enjoy cycling, horse riding, boating and golfing.

Open-tread stairs to first floor: Twin bedroom with sloping ceiling and shared en-suite shower room/WC leading to double bedroom with sloping ceiling and exterior door to garden via stone steps

    We thought La Garenne was an amazing property, very interesting and the gardens were beautiful (although the grass could have done with another cut during the fortnight!). The swimming pool was very clean and well maintained. A very peaceful and relaxing holiday .

    The villa was of the right type, but was cluttered with the owners personal belongings , preventing use of certain areas, and it had the feel of a place that the owners had just stepped away from for a week. The bedroom downstairs was basically a mattress on the floor, and most of the cupboards and even wardrobes were either full of owners stuff or were locked, making them unusable. The grass was not cut, giving the gardens an unkempt feel, though the pool was well maintained. The 70 Euros cleaning charge imposed on top of the rental fee also gave the feeling that we were being "milked". Bourgueil was pretty much dead in the evening, so we were fortunate that our daughters were able to drive elsewhere to enjoy the atmosphere of bars and restaurants in the evening.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments which will help us to see what needs to be improved in 2016, mostly the garden, cleanliness and comfort. La Garenne is an old family cottage with many antiques and souvenirs. In order to avoid any confusion we will separate more clearly private and available rooms. Nevertheless in each bedroom, there are large and empty chests of drawers as well as a wardrobe which are available for our guests. The bedroom downstairs was not a mattress on the floor but a sofa bed. We will change it however to twin beds for 2016.

    We have holidayed in gites, all over France with family and sometimes with friends over many years, the condition of this property was the worst we have ever stayed in - worst aspects were the fact that their was not a single empty cupboard in the kitchen in which we could store food; all rooms were very cluttered with the owner possessions leaving no room for holiday makers clothes etc. especially since all the cupboards and wardrobes were locked ! and if not full !. Another upsetting feature was as the number of cockroaches we had to kill on a daily basis.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments which we found surprising compared to our previous reviews. We will take them into account for 2016. More empty cupboards will be available in the kitchen. La Garenne is an old cottage typically French belonging to our family for several generations with antique furniture and many souvenirs: some are at guests disposal and others are locked in cupboards. Nevertheless in each bedroom, there are large and empty chests of drawers as well as a wardrobe available yo our guests. Even though cockroaches are quite unusual in La Garenne, we will pay attention to that issue.
