Outdoors: - The spacious courtyard offers off-road parking in front of the gîtes. - There is a good sized garden area directly behind the property with garden furniture and a BBQ for guests staying in Les Glycines. There is an acre-sized garden, for swing ball, badminton and outdoor ball games - plenty of space for kicking around a football here! There are also swings and of course the large, heated swimming pool, operational from the end of May (earlier if the weather is hot!) to the end of September. We have bicycles we are happy to let you borrow (for which you will have to sign a disclaimer form for insurance purposes). On site assistance: Whilst the gîtes are within the same boundary as the owner’s own home, all efforts are made to assure our guests their privacy. Often our presence is much appreciated as we can help out with all sorts of information. A WONDERFUL LOCATION! The gîtes are in the heart of Royal Châteaux country, the major châteaux of which you are encouraged to visit include: Chambord, Chenonceau, Chaumont, Blois, Amboise, Azay-le-Rideaux, Loches, Saumur, Chinon,.... We are also in the heart of excellent wine country and there are some wonderful outdoor markets around. We are situated 3 kms north of the River Loire, near Amboise, between Tours and Blois. 'Les Bocages' is located on the outskirts of Monteaux, a small village that has a variety of shops and services: a boulangerie, a general store, a butcher's, a post office, a hairdresser’s and, of course, a bar/tabac! For a wider choice of facilities - a hypermarket, garages, banks, doctors, dentists, pharmacy, petrol station and lots more - there is Onzain, just a five-minute drive away. More

Our village just 2 km from the river, has all the required amenities such as an excellent boulangerie (you’ve never have had such delicious croissants), a general store, a café /tabac and a butcher. Les Bocages is situated just away from the village centre, a 10 minute walk, surrounded by countryside where you will enjoy walking (you can borrow our dog to show you the way), cycling on our bicycles, watching fabulous sunsets in the utmost silence (everybody remarks on this prodigious quiet) … a relaxing holiday if that is what you seek, is guaranteed. If you also want to g
Getting around
A car is necessary as there is no local bus services to the village. We have a train station in Onzain just 5 km away from which you can travel can travel to Tours, Orleans, Paris... (Should you wish to travel further away by TGV our nearest station is Tours).
