The spacious en-suite double bedroom on the ground floor has full disabled access. The upper floor was formerly a grain store but now houses a spacious double bedroom and two twin bedrooms, all with wooden floors and sloping ceilings. The double bedroom has an en-suite shower and plenty of space to accommodate a baby cot or small single bed for a toddler (available on request). The twin bedrooms share the shower room immediately across the landing. Each of the three large shower rooms is fully tiled with towel rails, brightly lit large mirrors, a large step-in cubicle and a luxury shower with plenty of hot water. Beds will be made ready for your arrival and towels are provided. All bedrooms have a ceiling fan or free-standing fan for use in the hot weather. Le Grebe has its own private garden with table and chairs, sun loungers and a modern, large, Weber gas barbecue for outdoor dining, and shares the use of a two acre (one hectare) open garden area beyond. There is 4G coverage in our area and free wi-fi internet access is available in the gite. The 12m x 5.5m heated swimming pool (open from May to the end of September) is surrounded by terraces and fenced for safety, with Roman steps leading down into the water. Fields, woods and farms dot the surrounding countryside. The courtyard in front of the house has an area for playing the traditional sport of boules, with plenty of seating available.

Spacious gite, caring owners, well equipped kitchen, brilliant barbecue, evening sunsets, warm pool. What more can we say! Upstairs the bedrooms get hot in summer but that is a minor problem. Descartes is a nice non- touristy town with good food shops.

About the neighbourhood
Cussay is a small village mid-way between Descartes and Ligueil. It has a fantastic restaurant. Descartes is a 5 minute drive from Les Petites Cigognes. It is named after the famous philosopher René Descartes and there is a museum in the centre of town dedicated to his work, life story and extensive travels. Every Sunday morning there is an excellent market with a range of local produce available. Descartes lies on the River Creuse, along which there is a very pleasant walk through the pretty municipal gardens. The gardens are part of the local Parc des Loisirs in which there is an excellent outdoor swimming complex, crazy golf, canoeing on the river and children’s play area. Within the park there is an area containing llamas, donkeys, sheep, rabbits and various birds. This is a superb area for small children.
How to get there
Les Petites Cigognes is easily accessible by car, only 20 minutes from the A10 Exit 25 south of Tours. Travel from northern France and Belgium ports (P and O Ferries, DFDS) and the Channel Tunnel via the A16, A28 and A10. Autoroutes from the western ports of Dieppe (DFDS), Le Havre (Brittany Ferries) and Caen (Brittany Ferries) are now fully completed. The nearest airports are Poitiers and Tours, both approximately 50 minutes from Les Petites Cigognes. Car hire is available from both airports. Tours is becoming a major hub for budget airline routes. Ryanair fly from Stansted, Manchester and Dublin to Tours; Easyjet is operating a new summer route from Southampton to Tours from May 2012. From Tours there are flights to Marseilles in the south of France and Porto in Portugal. Ryana...
