We spent 3 weeks in the four bedroom modern gite along with 15 friends who came for one week each. The location allowed our guests to visit Tours and other sites in the Loire Valley while we explored the Touraine. The gite is 5 kilometers from Descartes which has a number of businesses along with a lovely park and small...

This is an excellent gite and wonderful pool. There are no negative comments and we would highly recommend Les Petites Ciogognes. A great central location for exploring chateaux and wine caves. Ian and Sandra are very welcoming, and there is everything you could possibly require. BBQ and outdoor seating is ideal and plenty of activities for kids. We will definitely...

The 3 gites at Les Petites Cignones are set in a beautiful courtyard which also includes the owner's property. We stayed in the 3 bedroomed gite, Le Pluvier and were very impressed by it's overall cleanliness and facilities. The gite was equipped with just about everything you would need for a week's sightseeing in the Loire Valley and felt really...

About the neighbourhood
Cussay is a small village mid-way between Descartes and Ligueil. It has an excellent boulangerie (bread shop) and a fantastic restaurant.

Descartes is a 5 minute drive from Les Petites Cigognes. It is named after the famous philosopher René Descartes and there is a museum in the centre of town dedicated to his work, life story and extensive travels. Every Sunday morning there is an excellent market with a range of local produce available. Descartes lies on the River Creuse, along which there is a very pleasant walk through the pretty municipal gardens. The gardens are part of the local Parc des Loisirs in which there is an excellent outdoor swimming complex, crazy golf, canoeing on the river and children’s play area. Within the park there is an area containing llamas, donkeys, sheep, rabb...
