Jones family holiday Aug 2019
As veteran travellers in France, Bonneuil is the best equipped and maintained gite we have ever stayed in. It was everything we hoped it would be and more. There are plenty of things to occupy families in and around the gite - table tennis, boulles, pool table but we just loved the excellent swimming pool. It was hot while we were there so could have done with more sun shades (one of the two was broken) but otherwise there was more than ample equipment of all sorts inside and out. A minor problem was sorted out very quickly by Lorraine.
The area is very quiet so if you want lots to do each day with an action packed holiday you will have to travel. We didn't, we wanted a quiet, relaxing time and Bonneuil gave us that in abundance. There are however many lovely chateaus, vin yards and markets to visit in the Cher and Loire valleys and if you stay off the motorway, driving is a real pleasure on quiet roads. Local supermarkets are about 15-20 minutes away by car and provided all we needed for lovely barbeque meals under the external canopy. We will return without question if we are able.
Ideal for a large family. Pool very safe
Great property. So well equipped for a large group. Would certainly visit again.
everyone enjoyed it
A wonderful location for a family holiday
We spent a wonderful 10-day holiday at Gite de Bonneuil earlier in the year.
The property has been refurbished beautifully (probably fairly recently - everything feels very modern) and to an extremely high standard. The house is very spacious - we had 6 adults and 3 children in our party, and had masses of space. The kitchen is well kitted-out, with 2 dishwashers, a huge fridge and a huge freezer. The big dining table gave us lots of room and the open-plan layout downstairs worked well for a large party. The master bedroom is incredibly impressive and the other bedrooms are also well-appointed.
Outside, the garden is pretty and the surrounding fields create a very peaceful environment. The pool is heated and large (though note you need to start heating it a few hours in advance if you want it at max temperature), with lots of loungers and pool toys. And there are facilities to eat in the sun or shade. The children's play equipment was also a big hit - with a slide and two swings. We spent a number of enjoyable days around the pool/outside area, with no need to go further afield.
Both the owner and housekeeper are incredibly helpful, answering numerous questions for us and providing useful information.
We found the location to be great - with a big supermarket within a 15-minute drive, plus markets, chateaux and restaurants all within reasonably close proximity.
The only complaints from us were that there were a lot of flies (though there are some swatters to help keep them under control) and some kitchen items were slightly lacking (could do with more glasses and tea/coffee mugs, for example). But very minor stuff.
Overall I would thoroughly recommend Gite de Bonneuil for a family/group holiday.
A great week at Bonneuil
Great location for exploring the Loire Valley. The house is spacious and superbly furnished, very clean and maintained at a high level. It seems that the owners had thought of every little detail to give their guests the utmost comfort.
I have only 2 suggestions for improvement (to make the house just perfect): window screens to block the flies and air conditioning.
A high-quality, beautifully converted gite
A family group of 16 people (one a baby in a cot) spent a very happy fortnight's holiday in this gite. The gite is spacious and comfortable with many thoughtful features - such as two dishwashers and fridges! The owners have given careful and generous consideration to their visitors, providing a quality warm, walled swimming pool, a table-tennis table, a boules pitch and outdoor barbecue and seating area. The surrounding area is peaceful with lots of country lanes for bike rides and walks, and the nearest village has enough shops for everyday needs. Local people were very friendly and welcoming. We had a great time and are booking again for next summer.
At the heart of the castles of the Loire, at the crossroads of the Sologne, Touraine and Berry, near Beauval Zoo, spacious and quiet charming cottage in the countryside. A corner of paradise for nature and heritage lovers, disabled access, heated and secure swimming pool, spa, internet, fireplace, golf nearby.
