“Wonderful Holiday”
Reviewed September 20, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had a lovely week staying in L'Hirondelle. The owners are very welcoming and we enjoyed our time with them. The gites are attractive, clean, and comfortable with everything you need - we travel with a cleaning kit and half the kitchen 'just in case' but were delighted that they never made it out of the box. The pool and grounds are lovely and spacious with great views, ideal for star gazing - our children aged 13 and 9 are still talking about their holiday.

“A true home away from home”
Reviewed September 13, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I spent a week at L'Hirondelle with my husband and 2 young daughters.
It is an extreme comfortable and homely cottage where the hosts had really gone above and beyond to ensure that our stay was enjoyable and stress-free.
The setting is absolutely stunning and we loved the peace and quiet away from our usually busy lives.
The pool was always clean and well maintained and there was always plenty to occupy the children allowing us to relax and unwind.
We are keen to return and would highly recommend L'Hirondelle and the other gites at La Richardiere to anyone looking for a change to relax and recharge.

Reviewed August 23, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

tranquility, space, entertainment and very friendly helpfull owners. Waking up in te morning, with fresh bread brought to you. In the garden eating your breakfast, with the birds singing.
Central to a few lovely places and great outdoors (la Brenne). Gites are all very clean and well maintaned and you have all the facilities you need. What a lovely place to end your working year and to refresh yourself for the coming year.

Thank you for choosing our Gites to spend your holiday. We see you have booked again for a fishing trip in the Brenne, which provides excellent fishing and bird watching opportunities. We hope to see you and all the family again next year. Bookings are now open for 2017.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed April 9, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

My wife and our four year old son stayed in L'Hirondelle at La Richardière for five nights at the end of March (including the Easter weekend). The cottage was very comfortable for us, and Dave and Patience were excellent hosts. The kitchen was very well equipped, and we made excellent use the wood burner stove, which made the comfortable living room very cosy. The beds were also extremely comfortable.

Dave and Patience made extra gestures by leaving a basket of supplies for our first evening/morning, and were friendly throughout the stay, offering advice and ideas of how to make best use of our time in the region. The grounds are beautiful, and the rural setting is very peaceful.

There are many nice things to do locally, including exploring countryside, little French towns and villages and local markets. Slightly further afield are the numerous chateaux of the Loire region e.g. Chenonceau is under an hour away, Montrésor—one of the prettiest villages in the region—is also within easy reach, and Loches is highly recommended. ZooParc de Beauval (another recommendation from Dave and Patience) was fantastic and an excellent activity for kids and parents alike. Due to the time of year we didn't make use of the other facilities (BBQs and swimming pool) but based on our experience, we are sure these would be as lovely as everything else. Highly recommended!
