This was our second trip to Le Bois, and we enjoyed it even more than the first. The complex is beautiful - a meticulously restored French country farmhouse in an amazing setting. While very private, you are still quite close to enjoy all of the Loire valley - wineries, chateaux, wonderful little villages. On this trip, we kayaked along the Loire river from Saumur - great fun. I would also recommend another nice village - Langeais - it has a beautiful chateau, and a wonderful market. Great place to pick up some fresh food, and then back to Le Bois for a grill and enjoy a dinner by the new pool. The owners installed a new in-ground pool that really makes this place amazing. We will definitely be back!
We had yet another fantastic stay at Le Bois and Le Bucheron in June of this year. Le Bois really does feel like our second home (we wish it was) and it is much enjoyed by us and our children and in particular by our dog! Both houses are superbly equipped with relaxing open plan spaces and all of your home comforts including wireless, satellite TV, landline etc. There is a separate utility room for all your laundry needs. There is a huge garden including a childrens play area and a pool. SO much to see in the area you won't know where to start. It is rural - you have neighbours but you can't really see them or hear them ....but it is not far to a supermarket .......or local market. I consider myself to be really quite demanding of my holiday accommodation .....and I love it at Le Bois. The owners maintain it as if it were there own home and their housekeeper is English speaking, friendly but not intrusive. If you love France, you won't be disappointed!
