La Vrilletterie is a 200 year old longere style property which comprises a former self catering farmhouse and farm buildings set around a gravel courtyard. Built of the warm, local tuffeau stone, it retains all the old timber roof beams and varied tiled floors. Situated off a small private road in rolling countryside and woodlands, La Vrilletterie offers security, privacy and easy access to wonderful walks and bike rides. The house is fully centrally heated and has a large wood burning stove for your comfort. For those considering a Christmas or New Year break, we are happy to discuss your requirements. The Loire Valley offers unique opportunities for autumn and spring holidays with many chateaux open all the year round with wonderful cycling terrain for cycling enthusiasts. There is also an excellent range of golf courses within easy travelling distance.
The large, secure garden affords children the freedom to amuse themselves on the swings, in the hammocks, riding the bicycles, or befriending Muffin (the resident pooch) or chickens whilst mum, dad and possibly grandparents relax and unwind. A glass of wine or two, whilst not obligatory, seems to help this process and Stephen is happy to take you for a wine tasting at local vineyards to find a wine that suits your palate. We have secure facilities for storing bicycles if you bring your own, but have a good range of well maintained cycles available for all ages and abilities. We also have a games room with table tennis table, darts, punch bag and a variety of garden games. The fabulous heated swimming pool, 10m x 4.5m is up to 1.75m deep so there is plenty of room for serious swimmers. Surrounded by a huge sun patio with a variety of comfortable loungers, you can relax and tan. Please note the pool will be open and warmed from 1st May through to late September. We cannot guarantee that it will be open outside these dates as it is subject to prevailing weather conditions. It is hard to do justice to this property with either words or pictures, so please read our previous clients untouched reviews to get a real sense of just how good a holiday experience we offer.

You can see from the pictures that this place is beautiful, but it doesn't do justice to just how special it really is. I have just returned from a week here with my family and what an amazing stay we had. Stephen and Diana were the perfect hosts and they went above and beyond what I have ever experienced on similar holidays elsewhere; we had fresh salad and vegetables from their garden and Diana bakes the most incredible cakes. The place was immaculate and very well equipped, although a stunning area with plenty to visit there wasn't really any reason to leave. Thanks for everything and hope to see you again one day soon!
We Miss It

We stayed at La Vrilletterie for 3 weeks with various friends, using all the space in the gite.
Although this was right at the very end of their season, Diana and Stephen were tireless in their concern for our comfort and well-being. We were taken on wine-tasting visits, helped with the pizza-baking, and provided with all sorts of produce from the garden by Steve. Diana welcomed us with her delicious home-made cakes and wonderfully comfy beds. Nothing was too much trouble. We miss it!

This was our second visit to La Vrilletterie, the first being at Easter in 2015. We were very much looking forward to enjoying the Gite and the surrounding areas during the Summertime and were not disappointed. We had a wonderful holiday with great weather and our two children enjoyed the pool, the bikes and generally playing around the property. We had fresh vegetables from Stephen's garden and were pleased to see Muffin again as well as the horses. We would recommend this property which was wonderful and thank Stephen and Diana for their hospitality and kindness.
Another Wonderful Holiday

We have just returned from our 2nd holiday to La Vrilletterie and we were not disappointed. This is the most beautiful accommodation set in a glorious rural location but within easy reach of some lovely towns, villages and Chateaux - perfect to explore when you need a break from the stunning gardens and inviting pool. Stephen and Diana are the most wonderful hosts - on hand to provide tips for places to visit; provide courgettes, potatoes and salad for your evening meal - dug straight from the allotment; provide advice on how to perfect the best pizza; or to provide the most amazing dining experience in their salon. We really can't fault the whole La Vrilletterie experience and look forward to visiting again in the future. Thank you Stephen, Diana and of course Muffin, for making our 2nd holiday such a fantastic week.
A Perfect Haven

This is a fabulous property in an idyllic, tranquil location; away from it all yet only five minutes from a boulangerie and fifteen from a supermarket.Located in peaceful rolling farmland, La Vrilletterie is suitable for people of all ages. We were a party of six (ranging in age from 66 to 6) plus two dogs and we all, including the dogs, (the grounds are totally enclosed) had an excellent holiday.Diana and Stephen have paid wonderful attention to detail; everything necessary is provided and generously so. Consumables, such as coffee,tea, sugar, loo rolls etc were in abundance, and we were greeted with delicious cakes, milk in the fridge and an invitation to help ourselves from the "salad bar" to fresh vegetables and herbs.The property is spotless and spacious; the furnishings are very comfortable (especially the beds) and the bed linen and towels are of excellent quality. We made great use of a well-designed barbecue and ate al fresco from morning to night.The Games Room was great fun (darts and table tennis) and the kids especially enjoyed the pool and feeding the hens. Stephen and Diana were extremely helpful when we needed something and gave us complete space when we didn't. As an added bonus, Muffin their dog, is something of a Lionel Messi when it comes to playing with his football.We would highly recommend this property.
