An amazing place to spend a relaxing holiday! Les Petites Cigognes catered for our group of eight perfectly, with the pool being a massive hit with everyone of all ages. Plenty of space both inside and outside and much thought has obviously gone into making the gite as comfortable as possible. Descartes is only 5 mins away by car and... More

We stayed in la Colombe in the school holidays and cannot fault this place it was a home from home and although you feel like you are in the middle of the countryside it's only ten mins by car to the local town of Descartes. There is so much to see and do in the area that we had fun... More

Our second stay (and 5 star review!) at La Colombe, the smallest of the 3 gites, and again wasn't disappointed. It is always spotless, relaxing and the hosts are always friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Perfect for the kids to play in the pool while you relax and the location is great for all the Loire has to... More

This was our second time at Les Petites Cigognes and once again we stayed in the smallest gite, La Colombe, which is perfect for our family of 4 (2 children aged 12 and 9). The gite is spotlessly clean, well-equipped and spacious with a lovely terrace and enclosed garden. The pool and gardens are great and the children appreciated the... More

We have just returned from 2 weeks at Les Petites Cigognes. Myself, husband and our 4 year old son, along with my brother and our mum. The gite (Pluvier) suited 3 generations perfectly having a downstairs bedroom and bathroom for my mum. The gite was very spacious and comfortable. We wanted for nothing, everything was provided.

Whether you want to use this rural location as a base for sightseeing in the Loire Valley, or if you just want to lounge around the lovely swimming pool ... this is the place to be! Fabulous conversion of 18th Century mail coach houses into spotlessly clean gites with tasteful décor throughout. Big skies, fantastic sunsets and wonderful star-gazing. Listen... More
