Domaine de la Varenne

Livre d'or

Mieux que bien!

Nous avons été particulièrement heureux dans le gite Jasmin. Le site est enchanteur, la piscine particulièrement appréciée des enfants. Nos hôtes, Monsieur et Madame Chatagnon, leur famille et les personnes sur place ont tout fait pour rendre notre séjour le plus agréable possible et ils y ont pleinement contribué. Nous recommandons vivement cet ensemble, les promenades à pied aux alentours ont tout le charme que nous attendions.

La Varenne is the perfect base for a holiday in the beautiful Loire Valley. This is the third year in a row that we have stayed here and it never disappoints. The gite is very clean, well equipped (including Sky and WiFi), very comfortable and has a lovely private garden area to relax in. The (huge) grounds are brilliant, lots of space to run around, play badminton, volley ball, table tennis and more. The covered swimming pool is a real bonus too - whatever the weather. The newly added lake is an inspired idea, fantastic. What really makes a holiday here special though is the welcome from the owners who are quite delightful. They are very well informed, friendly and full of great advice on places to visit and things to do, which is a great help - there is so much to see and do in the region (we've barely scratched the surface after three visits!). There are five gites here of different sizes, each unique and with its own character. Mixing 'rest' days and days out works really well as there is plenty to do on either, our party ranged from 6yrs to over 70yrs of age and none were disappointed. We will be returning again!

Recommended for: Age 55+, sightseeing, families with teenagers, families with young children and romantic getaway

"Dear Virginie & Gerard,

Thank you for sharing your beautiful cottage with us this week. The beauty and peaceful atmosphere has made our visit so restful. We will look forward to returning next year. God bless you and your precious family.

"Chere famille Chatagnon,

Merci beaucoup pour une semaine très agréable a la Varenne! We really enjoyed our time with you, and appreciated the time you spent advising us on restaurants and local events - and the haricots verts you shared with us! We all loved the pool - the temperature was perfect, and we much preferred the salted water to chlorinated. The garden was beautiful and it was lovely to sit and read or drink a cup of coffee looking out over the fields. The children had a great time too, and enjoyed playing with the other children at la Varenne.
Les familles Greene, Benson et Hodges" England

"Lots of fun in the pool and making use of the badmington net and table-tennis. Keeps the children amused and allowed us to relax.
A fun week had by all again. Thank you very much.

"We had a wonderful time at La Varenne, our children loved Loches as did we.What amazing history!!
We wish we could have stayed longer.
God Bless, Milan, Danielle" Chicago

"What a fantastic place to stay! Our hosts were super friendly and helpful (and with better English than our French!)
The pool is ideal and the exercise took the guilt out of enjoying some of the most delicious things France has to offer.
Very many thanks indeed.
Sharon,Roland" England

"La Varenne is a really lovely and nice place and we hope that we will visit la Glycine again, it is a really impressive area here."

"Thank you for opening your wonderful house to us on such short notice. You rescued us from a very bad situation and helped us to thouroughly enjoy our stay in the region.
After hearing the cuckoo with euro coins in my pocket I am expecting to become wealthy...
Thank you, thank you from all of us.

Perfect for a sunny relaxing family holiday
Date of Stay: 13 Aug 2016
'A very welcoming host, with excellent language skills (for those that struggle with French) he was always on hand for advice etc but still gave us privacy. The premises are nice clean and comfortable with a selection of both French and English TV and reliable internet connection ( A must if you have teenagers in your party) Whilst there are other properties on site this one provided the best location in terms of closeness to the pool, private rear garden. Plenty to amenities to keep families entertained - The pool - Table Tennis - Volleyball - Football pitch - a sand pit Four bedrooms (2 doubles 2 twins) each with their own ensuite shower rooms upstairs and a double downstairs with sink and toilet ensuite. Access to upstairs was by spiral staircases (two rooms to the front and two rooms to the rear) so getting suitcases up and down was a bit tricky but not impossible, although it might provide problems for someone with mobility issues. Highly recommend - will certainly return at some point' Yvonne C.

Very relaxed and enjoyable week at Gîte
Date of Stay: 30 Jul 2016
"Many thanks to our welcoming hosts Virginie and Gerard, we had a lovely week. The gîte we stayed in comfortably accommodated 9 of us (5 kids, 4 adults) and was equipped with everything we needed. The pool was a big hit with the kids and the table tennis was fun too. Everyone appreciated the peaceful and quiet French countryside, I can see why people return year after year. We enjoyed some short trips to the local market in Loches and the crazy huge sculptures at Chateau du Rivau. All in in, highly recommended." Dave L.

It has everything you need for a relaxing holiday
Date of Stay: 20 Aug 2016
"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." John UK

Super vacances en famille
Date of Stay: 8 Jul 2016
"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" FG

Propriété magnifique et propriétaire passionné !
Date of Stay: 24 Jun 2016
"Nous avons passé un excellent we avec plusieurs amis. La propriété est très bien tenue et le gîte extrêmement propre et très bien équipe. La literie a été récemment changée. Les propriétaires sont très agréables et ont été pendant notre séjour très discrèts mais également très serviables. Nous conserverons cette adresse." BENJAMIN B.

Idyllic accommodation and great host
Date of Stay: 28 May 2016
"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."
