“Ticked all the boxes for us.”
Reviewed 27 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We wanted a private peaceful break for a few days before joining friends and family for one or two celebrations a bit further south.Le bouchet was just what we wanted and also gave us space and privacy within a few minutes of the nearest village.The accommodation was spacious and well equipped very clean with a welcome pack that was well thought out.The gardens were large and well tended with space in the shade or in sun to relax.After about 35 yrs of hiring gites/villas in various countries we both agreed that Le Bouchet is well up on our list of places to return to.Le Bouchet was our first to a Gite with owners living on site as we do love our privacy when on holiday and were a bit worried about intrusion.Our worries were completely unfounded.Trevor and Susan were very welcoming and helpful
at all times but had a wonderful knack of being available when they were needed and invisible when not.Susan was very kind and helpful in our hour of need and booked my wife an appointment with english speaking doctor in the nearby village which resulted in our quick departure for home and a hospital visit.
Everything taken into account this property ticked all the boxes for us the gardens and pool were surprisingly large and beautiful and I must say the website photos do not do do them justice.

“An excellent place to relax”
Reviewed 4 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This is a cracking little place to stay. The gite is exceptionally well equipped, nothing has been forgotten. It is clean and well maintained. Trevor and Sue are welcoming and helpful but unobtrusive.

The gardens are a series of well planned and well equipped 'rooms' and again very well maintained.

If you are looking for a place to stay that is quiet and welcoming, relaxing and near to plenty of interesting sites to visit; look no further, you have found it.

“Ideal for a relaxing family holiday”

A lot of thought and preparation has gone into making this gite a very comfortable holiday home. It's well equipped, with sufficient extra crockery and cutlery to last all day, a variety of media equipment and outdoor games things. To welcome us we had wine, bread and cheese, what more do you need? There's a lot of space, both inside and outside and the gardens are a delight, with several tables and chairs in different areas - if we fell out with each other we could have all found a separate area to sit! The pool is lovely and, shared with only one other gite, feels very private. Everything is well maintained and of a high quality - nice towels, comfy sofas and beds. We would have liked cushions for the sun loungers, but that was the only thing we missed. There's a lot of useful information about the local area too; we found the links and recommendations on their website particularly helpful. Trevor and Sue responded very quickly to our queries and even gave us an extra bottle of wine when we were caught out by Sunday shop hours. The area is a little further away from the main tourist areas in the Loire valley than we had realised, but nowhere was more than an hours drive away and there are plenty of interesting places closer too. We loved Loches and Villandry, both within easy reach, also Chateau Clos Luce near Amboise.

“Great place to relax and get away from everything”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This is one of the most relaxing and enjoyable holidays. The owners Trevor and Susan are both welcoming and polite.
The property is situated a couple of miles away from Descartes town centre so a vehicle is essential. It is tastefully decorated and has everything you could possibly ask for.
BBQ area and table outside make the evenings most enjoyable.
2 large supermarkets a couple of miles away ensure you can buy food etc.
I would recommend this to everyone. Fantastic holiday!
