About chatagnon gerard

Hi,

I am glad you found our property and I can assure you, you won’t be disappointed by your stay with us.

My wife Virginie and I have been running le Domaine de la Varenne for over 30 years.We are well-travelled and both speak French, English, German and Spanish. We are renowned for our hospitality.We just love meeting new people.

Our 18th-Century-old-farm is absolutely gorgeous in the middle of a ten-acre park, with its unique feature : a covered heated swimming pool all year round.

Situated in the Loire Valley you will find an outstanding choice of historical places, Chateaux, wine-tasting, lakes, golf courses, horse-riding, fishing, bird-watching,walking in the forest.

This is one of the best-value-for- money cottage in the area: A holiday you'll never forget.

chatagnon gerard purchased this farmhouse in 1978

Why chatagnon gerard chose Indre-et-Loire

We bought la Varenne because we wanted to raise our five children in the countryside. We have been running an international school in Loches for 30 years and we were able to get away from it all. For us la Varenne is peace and quiet, fresh air and open space. We all love riding. Our horses are friendly to the visitors who can enjoy seeing them gallop in the field next to the property.

We also love swimming so you are assured of the luxury of the pool at any time of the year making Spring or Autumn breaks equally pleasant.

The property is open and spacious. You will enjoy both privacy and comfort.

In Loches,follow the road to Ligueil. After (not "at") the second roundabout, turn right (signposted Mouzay and les Fourneaux) at a big wooden cross. After 500m, La Varenne is on your right.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Outdoor games are available from May onwards weather permitting. We have games like boules, volley-ball and table tennis (please bring your own bats and balls) as well as the pool and there are tennis courts and riding stables 2 kms from here. There is a good golf course about 20 kms away and 13 kms from here is a huge forest with lots of wildlife.

Loches (12 kms) has markets on Wednesday and Saturday mornings, full of farm fresh fruit and vegetables, local hams and cheeses, bread, fish, meat and flowers, sometimes wild mushrooms, sometimes home made preserves. There are also numerous local restaurants to choose from.TOURS, offers you everything you can dream of: concerts,theatres, museums, Basilica with Saint Martin’s tomb.Tours really deserves the nickname of "little Paris".

It has everything you need for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts were the most friendly people you could ever wish to meet, nothing was too much for them and always on hand for advice for what to see and do.

There is so much to do in the grounds of the property that the 2 4yearolds went to bed each night tired out. Outside you have so many places to see that one week is no where near enough.

That is why we hope to return in the future.

A most brilliant holiday.

Super vacances en famille

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé deux semaines vraiment très agréables avec nos enfants et 8 petits enfants (de 1 à 7 ans). Nous trouvé que ce lieu était particulièrement bien adapté pour un séjour de retrouvaille entre familles ; nous avons particulièrement apprécié :

- la séparation phonique entre appartements (murs très épais), ce qui permet la bonne ambiance entre familles (personne ne souffre des cris des petits des autres)

- la qualité de l'accueil et du service de M et Mme Chatagnon : ils ont réagit à quelques besoins spécifiques avec une rapidité et une efficacité qui nous ont impressionnés

- la piscine confortable et bien sécurisée

- la tente égyptienne sur sable bien adaptée aux jeux des petits et au confort des adultes

Owner's Response: Nous avons été très heureux de vous accueillir. Nous garons un excellent souvenir de la joie de tous vos petits-enfants quand ils nourrissaient les canards et les carpes, les heures passées à faire les pâtés de sable, les ébats joyeux dans la piscine... Merci de nous encourager à toujours améliorer nos conditions d'accueil.. Bravo pour l'organisation et la discrétion de tout ce petit monde. Enfin merci de votre confiance et au plaisir de vous accueillir de nouveau. Cordialement, Virginie et Gérard

Idyllic accommodation and great host

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and the owners, who live next door, could not have been more helpful or friendly.

If you were to stereotype a rustic French farmhouse, this would be it. It is set within sufficient grounds for games of football, volleyball and ping pong and it is easy to travel to and from. Futuroscope, Tours, La Brenne national park and ZooParc de Beauval (where they have 2 pandas) are all within 1 hours' drive.

The swimming pool was great for our kids and heated, which is not always the case with pools in France.

Our stay was during the UK May half term holiday and, when comparing to other venues, this was as good as the others, but much better value, so we would happily recommend it to other travellers.

Super séjour près de Loches

  • 5 of 5

Gite très agréable d une propreté irréprochable. Situé sur un très grand terrain où les animaux font le bonheur des enfants .Près de loches ville historique où si vous êtes un peu curieux les visites ne manquent pas. Les propriétaires font tout pour que le séjour soit le plus agréable possible.Un accueil charmant et le sourire toujours présent, on peut échanger avec eux a souhait. Je recommande ce gîte pour la qualité de ses équipements comme la piscine chauffée dont nous avons largement profité au mois d'avril et la gentillesse des propriétaires.

We felt great

  • 5 of 5

We loved the time we spend at Glycine’s. A very picturesque setting, beautiful cottage surrounded with beautiful flowers, trees and horses grazing and running in the meadow behind the house. A place to build beautiful memories and relax.

You enter the property by walking by the pond where a pair of geese will greet you every time you walk in (they love the company). Next your eyes meet the daisies and the glycine and you feel transported somewhere back in time where a slower pace is needed and where the light is golden.

The location is perfect for walks, bike rides and for traveling to all the sought after destinations( 100 castles) in Loire Valley. Close to Loche (beautiful to visit) is placed in the middle of the area so it helps to balance the traveling schedule.

The apartments were very charming and comfortable, perfectly complementing the grounds of the property.

The hosts were amazing and extremely welcoming and helpful. Their friendliness made us feel at home instantly.

We truly enjoyed our time there !
