In the open plan living area the lounge has comfortable seating for seven people and is fitted with UK and French satellite TV, music centre, DVD player. The dining area has a large table seating seven and the kitchen is very well equipped with all modern conveniences including a dishwasher and washing machine. There are French doors opening out onto your own private walled terraced areas. The first terrace is decked and set at the same level as the lounge, to provide easy wheelchair access, and has a barbecue, table, chairs and a pergola. The second is a south facing terrace with sun loungers that also provides direct viewing access to the pool for the mobility impaired. The third is a courtyard terrace which is a quiet, hard landscaped area planted with bananas, cannas and other exotics. It has a shady pergola and has table and chairs to dine out in the evening and catch the last rays of the sun. Pathways lead to the Le Bouchet gardens and to a sun bathing area with a second entry to the pool. Le Bouchet is close to some of the most beautiful and impressive chateaux, such as Chenonceau and the captivating Villandry, and is the ideal location for your holiday, whether you want to chill out and relax by our heated pool or get out to see more of what our wonderful region has to offer. With the historic towns of Loches, Tours and Poitiers and the fantastic Futuroscope theme park all within easy reach, you are bound to find plenty to see and do for all ages. A couple of minutes away is the lively town of Descartes which has restaurants and bars and can provide for all your holiday needs with supermarkets, chemists, butchers, bakeries and a Sunday market selling everything from fish to flowers! For the more active amongst you there is a water park, canoeing, golf, horse riding, sailing, horse racing locally and birdwatching in the Brenne National Park. Recent customer reviews include: 'Fantastic location, peaceful yet only a walk to the boulangerie and amenities of Descartes. There are plenty of chateaux within driving distance and we could have easily found things to do for a 2-week stay!' 'There was a wealth of local information and places to visits in the gite. The personal touch from both of you was exceptional and made us feel very welcome. I would love to return year after year with so many places to visit.' 'We've had a wonderful stay here at Le Bouchet. It's been like home from home, very comfortable and extremely well equipped. Our children (0-5 1/2 yrs) have loved the pool as have we! Sue and Trevor have been lovely hosts - thank you for all your hard work, you've made this a fantastic place for a holiday!' 'Trevor and Sue made us very welcome and pointed us in the right direction when we needed help (Thank you). Great swimming pool; the children spent a large amount of time in it!! See you again.' 'At Le Bouchet, you really feel like you are staying in the middle of nowhere. Sitting in the garden, looking at the stars and listening to the frog chorus and grasshoppers is such an amazing way to relax. However, Descartes, the local town, is less that five minutes drive away and has everything you might need (including three supermarkets). In this part of France there are old towns, chateaux, lakes, forests, canoes, bicycles to hire, animals parks and a fabulous theme park (Futuroscope). They are all easily accesible on largely empty roads with beautiful fields all around.' 'Trevor and Sue are very good hosts. They were on hand whenever we needed help and advice. They made it easy for our party, of non-fluent French speakers, to have a superb holiday. Our children enjoyed meeting their goats, dogs and chickens, and on one occasion a praying mantis! I can't recommend this house highly enough.' More

About the neighbourhood
Of course, our region has so much more to offer you beyond the normal tourist attractions of the Loire Chateaux and the theme park at Futuroscope; locally there are many picture perfect towns and villages just waiting to be discovered. Cycling is a great way to see the local area, with many routes providing wonderful country views and the opportunity to discover some of those pretty local villages. Descartes, with its bars, restaurants, supermarkets and water park is just a five minute cycle ride away down the hill! Around our local area there are many forests, woods and walks where you can appreciate the local flora and fauna - deer are common visitors and of course wild boar do roam but are seldom seen. Quite frankly, the wildlife in this region is spectacular and even in the immediat...
How to get there
Le Bouchet is in the south of the Touraine region of the Loire Valley, just 45 minutes from the airport of Tours, in Indre et Loire, and Poitiers airport, in the Vienne, both of which are served by RyanAir. Coming by car, Le Bouchet is easy to get to being just 20 minutes from the A10 which provides a motorway link to most of the channel ferry ports. We are only 2km from either Descartes or Abilly.
