The house

  • Quiet, rural area with some agricultural activity

Les Ecuries is a handicapped friendly conversion of the old stables at Le Bouchet, an ancient farm nestling in beautiful wooded countryside, close to the small market town of Descartes with its shops, bars and restaurants.
Renovated and adapted to a very high standard and sleeping up to 7 people, Les Ecuries provides the perfect accommodation to make sure you get the very best from your holiday.
Our gites are cleaned and sanitised in accordance with current recommended guidelines for Covid 19.
On the ground floor, there is a large open plan living area with a fully equipped farmhouse kitchen, dining area and a comfortable lounge area with Wifi and Satellite TV. French doors lead out to your own private terraces. Also on the ground floor is a large double bedroom conveniently located adjacent to the handicapped friendly bathroom with a walk-in shower, sink and toilet.
Upstairs there are two large bedrooms, a double with its own seating area and a bedroom with three single beds – both with air conditioning units, fans and hairdryers. There is also a bathroom with shower, sink and toilet. Cots and highchairs are available together with a stairgate if required. Outside there are three terraces ideal for the mobility impaired with ramped access to the pool. The terraces are equipped with sun loungers, pergola, table, chairs and BBQ making them the perfect place to take advantage of the weather and enjoy the outdoor lifestyle.
From your terraces you have access to the rest of the gardens at Le Bouchet where you will find the large shared heated pool and terrace, picnic benches and children’s play area with swing, slide, climbing frame and goals for a game of football.
For your security and peace of mind, the pool is fenced with pool entry points protected by pool security locks to prevent any toddler wandering in by accident.

Restaurants, food & wine

There are many, many restaurants ranging in style and price to choose from, from the Michelin starred "La Promenade" restaurant at Petit Pressigny right to the small but very pleasant restaurant, Assiette Creuse, in Descartes and every other type in between - around Le Bouchet you will find something for everyone. Our gite has a list of local restaurants with indications of pricing and of course we are always happy to book a table for you.
Wine of course features highly in the Touraine, with soft reds and crisp white wines and some rather delicious sparkling Vouvray wines! With the Tufa caves along the Loire ideal for storing wine there are many different wine tours (many in English) that are arranged providing the opportunity to sample a glass or two.


Ideally situated near to the medieval town of Loches and mid-way between Tours and Poitiers, Le Bouchet is in an ideal location to get out and about to see what our region has to offer. There is plenty to see and do locally, including kayaking on the river Creuse, a water park in Descartes, the museum and Chateau in Grand Pressigny, horse riding and of course walking and cycling in the very quiet and peaceful French countryside. Further afield, as well as all the pretty villages in the area, many of the Loire Chateaux are within easy reach of Le Bouchet; the theme park at Futuroscope is just 40 minutes away; the Brenne National Park and the Wildlife Park at Haute Touche are both within 25 minutes and we even have a large sandy beach only 30 minutes away at Saint Cyr!!!

    Superplek! Heerlijk rustig. Heel veel vogelgeluidjes. Trevor en Sue zijn heel erg vriendelijk. Met rolstoel ook een hele fijne plek. De tuin is super. Het zwembad is top. Als je even rust zoekt is dit echt een aanrader. Ik ben hier 4 nachtjes met 4 kinderen en manlief. Vandaag heerlijk genoten van de eerste bbq van het jaar. Het huisje staat op een mooi ruim boerenerf .

  • Saskia from Belgium,

    Excellent location with plenty of space. Tidy rooms and bathrooms.
    Clear driving instructions received beforehand and nice welcome package on arrival.
    Plus: the swimming pool! The children (and adults) enjoyed it everyday again.
