We (including our two teenage daughters aged 14 and 17) had an amazing 2 week holiday experience at the farmhouse in August 2015.
Mary and Xavia were perfect hosts, warm and friendly and on hand if we had any questions. We were encouraged to explore their extensive beautiful grounds. They even have their own chapel. The woods are lovely to walk around and at the rear end of the chateau is the Loire River which we had a swim in one day. If you stroll down the rose garden, cross one of the fairy tale bridges there is a beautiful orangery with a piano residing inside which can be played (our daughters play the piano so it was a magical experience). Izzy (their dog) is the friendliest dog we have ever met and she would often accompany us all on one of our walks and occasionally we would also see Juliette (their cat).
The farmhouse was bigger than we expected from the photos and had everything we needed. It is tastefully decorated and clean. The main lounge has double doors which we would open early morning and gave us another lovely view not shown in the photos.
The village Bazouges-sur-le-Loir is only a short drive away and la Fleche was the main town we visited for the supermarket. We visited Angers which has a New Orleans influence, Saumur initially to see the Troglodytes but we also went into the pretty town for lunch. Worth a visit. Paris is under 3 hours. We parked just outside of Paris at Chateau de Vincennes with no problems accessing the subway from here and no parking costs.
I would recommend this property to all ages.
We stayed in this beautiful farmhouse for 2 weeks and immediately wished we could have stayed longer. It's very green, peaceful, charming and private. Only a short drive (some only 5-10 minutes, some places 15-30) takes you to local markets, castles, a beach (small charming lake), vineyards, a zoo, botanical gardens and lots of other fun, interesting or practical places.. Our 2 young children loved the house, the garden, the pool, the fantastic surroundings and of course feeding the donkey and the horse carrots everyday. The house has all the basics you need, a beautiful fireplace and a true historic value & feel.. Mary & Xavier (The owners) are absolutely lovely, very flexible and helpful in every way.
We will definitely come back!
De retour 2 ans plus tard (c'est une adresse qui était restée dans nos mémoires et qui vaut le voyage !) , nous avons une nouvelle fois apprécié le charme hors pair de cette maison pleine de caractère et la gentillesse de Mary. Nous avons pleinement profité du superbe jardin, des nombreux jeux mis à notre disposition, du barbecue, des feux de cheminée et surtout du domaine, du calme et de la nature environnante. C'est un lieu qu'on n'oublie pas.....
Nous avons apprécié notre week-end; et nous gardons cette adresse pour y revenir.
Maison de caractère, et très agréable.
Mary est une personne très avenante.
Au milieu d'arbres centenaires et entourée d'un somptueux jardin se dresse la merveilleuse "La basse cour" qui a gardé toute son authenticité, son charme et son caractère d'époque. Merci à Mary de son accueil et surtout d'avoir su préserver et de faire partager cet endroit exceptionnel.
Tout est fait pour rendre le séjour agréable autour d'un barbecue dans le jardin, devant un feu de cheminée le soir ou dans la piscine la journée.

We had a truely lovely holiday at LaBasseCour. The house is full of character and the garden and grounds of the Chateau really relaxing away from the crowds.
Much to our dogs delight we had several close encounters with deer as we walked in the woods right next to the house.
