We very much enjoyed our stay at La Vielle Ferme. It was a wonderful base from which to tour the many grand Chateaux. Angela and Derek are wonderful hosts and we enjoyed their thoughtful hospitality. With their advice we were able to successfully tour the area with complete ease and we are truly grateful to them for making our holiday in Clere du Bois, Loire Valley, a wonderful experience. Our girls 12yo and 15yo loved the pool, table tennis table, the endless supply of DVDs, and we all particularly enjoyed the BBQ. Derek loves his garden and the setting to the villas are all complemented with his beautiful roses/flowers and colour.

Our second year at La Vieille Ferme - we booked the larger Grange while actually stopping at the Stable last year. Angela and Derek were so welcoming and the accommodation just perfect - we could not expect any more. We shook off the toils of work and the journey and chilled into Loire life within hours. Within days we are planning a 2015 return!
The Grange is a large villa built in a quaint town deep in Loire Valley's countryside. Location provides a feeling of true 'living' on the farm experience, with small village, 700 year old church and where one is surrounded by fields of wheat, sunflower, flowers. Chateaus are anywhere from 20min-1hr drive by car and are all located within easy reach of Clere du Bois.
We very much enjoyed staying at the house where we found it nice, clean, with full facilities bedrooms, bathrooms ... plenty of room to roam around, including, such items as TV-Dish, WiFi, fireplace and other items of convenience. I guess if you plan to be staying on the location, pool comes in really handy ;).
We want to thank Angela and Derek for a very great reception and providing a good instruction on getting to town and a perfect atmosphere for pleasant conversation as well as being such great neighbors.
We hope to come back one day !!
The Grange was the location for our family holiday which included 3 couples and a baby. The accommodation was perfect as each couple had their own bedroom and shower room and downstairs there was a spacious kitchen-dining-living room together with an outside eating area.
Our hosts, Angela and Derek, were extremely helpful not only with local information but also in conjuring up baby equipment which we had forgotten!
La Vielle Ferme is a lovely place to relax in. We spent most of our time enjoying the facilities - sun bathing, table tennis, badminton, boules and the perfect swimming pool.
We've just had a great week in the Grange, exploring this lovely part of France. Derek and Angela were great hosts, making sure we got the most from our stay and offering advice on local shops, restaurants and places of interest. Our party of 6 adults and 1 infant, ranging from 3 months to 80 years old, took full advantage of the fantastic pool, bikes for hire and ping pong table. The grange is a snug, comfortable and well equipped base from which we visited Loches, Tours, Brenne National Park, nearby Chatillon and the glorious Chateau of Chenonceau. Would definitely recommend.
