To the rear we have a terrace and decking also equipped with table and chairs where guests can enjoy their evening meal or a glass of wine as they watch the sun going down.the surrounding area is quite and tranquil .
Hello my name is Dave l was born and raised in Epping in Essex ,when l married we moved to Yorkshire due to work commitments l work for GPO/BT for 45 years .
We have spent most of our holidays visiting France and we have in that time stayed under canvas, caravanning and staying in gites.
Our Barn is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. A proper home from home. Every year we work to enhance and improve the barn.
2013 has been a very successful year of which we have enjoyed welcoming visitors from all over the world.
David Madle purchased this barn in 2004
We chose to live in this region because being so central we can be in Paris in 3 hrs, the Vendee coast in 2.5 hrs, and the Loire with all it's beautiful chateaux.
We love the beautiful countryside, the peace, the quiet roads, pretty villages and hamlets that surround us.
We love walking and cycling there are many routes around La Grange.
Peace, quiet,relaxing,walking ,cycling ,views of the countryside,
We have had an incredibly fantastic week at La Grange ,such a beautiful ,well equipped Gite in stunning countryside ,we couldn't have wanted more apart from a longer stay
We have just returned from a fabulous 5 day break at La Grange.
Its years since we last visited France and we were certainly not disappointed with our choice of accomodation or location.
Hilary and Dave have created a beautiful gite - a true home from home with everything you could possibly need, in a peaceful rural setting with lovely views.
We were very lucky to have fantastic weather for the whole 5 days and would recommend trips out to Chenonceau, Amboise, Azay-le-Rideau and the brilliant Zoo Parc de Beauval (which is worth every penny).
We would have no hesitation in recommending La Grange and we hope to return next year.
P.S. Hilary - I've spent all morning on Leggett!!
La Grange - what a GEM. Having holidayed in France many times our party all agreed this is the best so far - location, house (absolutely immaculate), Hilary & David (they do their best to ensure you have a wonderful holiday) + the weather (something that can't be controlled!) all perfect.
When we arrived (directions excellent) we were greeted as friends, by the time we left, we were. Hilary & David are never intrusive but always friendly. They have thought of everything, nothing is too much trouble for them.
Yes you are far from the shops etc but that is normal in France do not let this deter you from booking. Do your research & plan ahead then shopping is a doddle.
The location of La Grange means your are within 1 hour (1 place is just 20 minutes) from some beautiful sites.
Hilary & David we wish you every success for the years to come -you deserve it. I'm sure we will return (I hope so). Many thanks for your hospitality.
My wife Jean and I together with our friends Alan and Tina stayed at La Grange for our holiday in the Loire. We were met on arrival by Hilary and Dave who proudly (and quite rightly so) showed us over the property. This is quite simply the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in. Their renovation of the property is stunning and the views are beautiful. The owners live next door and without being at all intrusive they advised us on local shops, markets and restaurants. We would thoroughly recommend this property, 10/10. Thanks Hilary and Dave very much indeed.
We enjoyed our week in Hilary and David's very comfortable and well-furnished home in the French countryside. The house is part of a small hamlet which was quiet and tucked away and the views were wonderful from the back of the house. Hilary and David are lovely hosts and looked after us well. Hope to be able to go back sometime.
La Grange is in a great countryside location, the view from the back verandah is amazing! Every comfort has been thought of and Dave and Hilary are so helpful and friendly! When we arrived late afternoon - the fridge was stocked with basics and there was fresh bread and two bottles of local wine waiting for us! We had some wonderful walks in the area and found some great restaurants in villages no more than 6 km away. We also cooked some meals in the very well equipped kitchen. The beds were very comfortable and the peace and quiet of the area helped us get a fantastic night's sleep! I would love to stay here again (though France is a long way from Australia) and would spend more time just sitting outside on the back verandah enjoying the fantastic view of green fields and trees. Highly recommended!
Our stay at 'La Grange' was simply perfect. The location is beautiful allowing for the 'away from it all' feeling while in comfortable driving distance to a plethora of attractions. David and Hilary were utterly spectacular hosts and even invited us to share a bottle of wine and some cheese in true french fashion. The actual house is beautifully decorated, the kitchen in particular allowed us to indulge in experimenting with the local cuisine. The backyard is the excellent place to daydream, read a book and sip some wine and we found ourselves outside frequently.
We could not recommend this property enough to any and all prospective holidayers. We would go back in a heartbeat and would like to thank David and Hilary for an amazing stay and great company.
