Fantastic family villa
We had two fantastic weeks in Les Hiboux. We have 3 children aged 8, 6 and nearly 4 and this was a brilliant house for a young family. Loads of kids toys and games are provided and the pools is perfect because it is heated, not chloriney and is shallow-ish at one end (with steps) but deep enough to dive in at the other. The pool is also fenced in with child proof gates, so can be sealed off if needed. The owner, Patricia is fantastically helpful and informative and manages to be available when needed but not at all intrusive. The bedrooms are good sizes, beds comfy and the place was spotless. We even had bundles of towels tied up with lavender on arrival. Nice touch. There are walks around, but you need a car to nip to supermarket and boulangerie (the one in the local village - 1km- was closed up at this time of year).
There are some nice places to visit around and activities like cycling and canoeing etc but we found ourselves staying at the pool for most days. Patricia clearly cares about her guests and wants to make sure your stay is as good, enjoyable, relaxing and comfortable as possible. We would really recommend this place to families and anyone wanting a really relaxing place to spend a holiday.
We had the most wonderful week staying here and our only regret was we didn't book for longer. Nothing was too much trouble for Patricia and we felt like family visiting rather than paying guests. We have 2 year old twins and she was able to organise 2 cots and highchairs for them, as well as many toys and books that kept our 4 children occupied for hours.
The pool was so lovely and warm, and very private looking over fields. The garden had a swing set, totem tennis, sandbox and mini trampoline for the children so we could relax with a glass of wine enjoying the view.
We found the area a good base to do sightseeing in the Loire Valley, the Chateaus at Chambord and Chenoceau were spectacular and we loved the market on a Sunday at Amboise. The nearby town of Vendome has a lovely tourist walk around it by the river.
The house is very spacious, much more so than it appeared in the photos. The main bedroom was beautifully light and airy with windows on 3 sides. Patricia provided a very generous welcome pack and her plum jam is to die for! It was a fantastic spot to holiday and such a shame to leave.
We have very fond memories of a lovley time spent here last summer.
The gite was very homely and the pool was wonderful and warm.
Location was ideal too - many super places and vineyards (!) to visit within a short drive.
Patricia was a excellent host - always happy to help. Her delicious homemade plum jam will remain a fond memory too!
We plan to return in a few years time.
We have had many good reviews but it is still good to have another one. I made lots of Jam last year it was a good year for 'Mirabelle' those delicious little plums but the cherry jam was the best according to visitor feedback. There is nothing like bread from the bakers in Epuisay and home made jam. We try really hard to make the holiday special for all our guests.
We have just returned from a wonderful relaxing stay at Les Hiboux. This is a charming, spacious farmhouse which has been very tastefully renovated. The heated pool is perfect and much appreciated in the summer. The owner is very helpful, wishing to make your stay as special as possible. Les Hiboux is located in a very peaceful area with lovely open views out into the country - very tranquil.
I have stayed in a number of gites over the years and this is most definitely in the top two. Beautifully maintained this wonderfully peaceful gite is the perfect place to relax. We took our parents, all in their 80s, and all agreed that we would like to return. If you are looking for peace and quiet and beautiful countryside Les Hiboux has it all.
