It is an old farm, in the commune of Loché sur Indrois, 5 km from the town. It is totally rural, at the edge of the Baugerais wood, 4km from the forest of Loches. There are many circuits for walkers, or mountain bikers, or quad. It is not difficult to see wild animals (game, heron etc..); Small shops around 5km. Tourist places at 1h or 1h30 by car (Chateaux of the Loire, Beauval Zoo, Festival of the Gardens of Chaumont, Park of the Haute Touche, region of La Brenne...)
The caravan on site, is installed on the part "canvas of tent" (see photos)
Unfenced land, with a small water feature, in harmony with nature.
It is a folding caravan of 2+1 places with gas stove 2 fires and small electric refrigerator. The instant reservation is possible in season. During the low season, it is necessary to inform me 3 days in advance to reserve the caravan.
It is possible to lend me one or two small tents (3 places) if you tick an extra person (over or equal to 13 years old) to the real number (which is equivalent to the rental of the assembled tent). The tent will be installed on your arrival by notifying me 3 days in advance by confirmation of the reservation. Thank you for your understanding
The sanitary facilities
You will have access to a bathroom (shower and toilet) at the inhabitant's house, with independent access during the day which also gives access to a sink to wash the dishes. In addition to that, dry toilets are available in an old pigsty. Possibility of putting a camping shower at your disposal (shower plugged into the cigarette lighter with a tent shower cabin and hot water canister) for "long stays"; please let me know 3 days in advance, by confirmation of the reservation, to have this accessory because I have to install it. Thank you for your understanding.

Possibility to lend 2 bicycles (please let me know in advance), (email hidden)Only the space under the awning is lit. I can also propose a simple camping space, if you have your own camping equipment, see my other announcement to this effect, with the provision of the "summer kitchen" space and the bathroom at the inhabitant. For the animals, the ground is not closed (except for the horses), there is however a small wire kennel which can accomodate punctually a dog or a cat or birds (or exclusive because not all at the same time of course!)
On the spot, walking, local festivals, some historical monuments to visit (Chartreuse du Liget, Citadelle of Loches, Castle of Montrésor), lake of Chemillé (fitted out in family nautical base with among others accrobranche). Natural swimming in the Indre river at 5 km, very nice for families. Pony club (pony and horses) at 15 minutes. Verneuil golf course at 30 minutes, ULM airfield at 10 minutes.

Also an hour drive from the Chaumont Gardens (international garden festival of Chaumont sur Loire), 1h30 from Georges Sand's house.
My mare Pouchka and I are ready to take you for a walk in the forest, if time and my availability allow it.
Possibility to pick some fruits or vegetables depending on the season. For the specific needs of the camper (emptying) we have to see.
There is always "garden maintenance" to be done, if you wish and if you know a little bit about it, a little help for the garden maintenance against "reimbursement" of a part of the reception fee, make me the proposal at the beginning of your stay...we can always arrange it.
I tried to make a presentation for different styles of stays, + or - idle, + or - independent, + or - participative, it's as you wish.
Possibility of breakfast (€3 / person)
Family breakfast "à la française", coffee, chocolate, tea, toast, butter, jam; croissant if possible in relation to the time of reservation. You book in a place that is far from everything! In the countryside, very natural, that's what makes its charm!
I can lend one to two tent sheets of 3 places each. I ask you to make an additional reservation (greater than or equal to 13 years) for the rental of a tent. That is to say to reserve 3 places instead of 2 if you come to 2, 4 places instead of three if you come to 3 etc.. I also ask you to inform me 3 days in advance, by confirmation of the reservation, because you will find the tent set up at your arrival. This is to prevent any risk of manipulation that could damage the material.
Exact location information is provided after a booking is confirmed.
Very good stay with Claudine.
Very nice place in the countryside.
Dry toilets appreciable.
Very well equipped courtyard, very useful in case of rain.
Only one small drawback, the access to the shower room closes a little early. It would be necessary at this time to have a water point under the courtyard.
Very good reception, a clean bathroom at disposal, a calm and pleasant place in the middle of the countryside. A very successful last stop on the way back from vacation.
A very refreshing weekend spent with our hosts. A discreet and attentive welcome that we warmly recommend. The place is also beautiful, to recommend to people who know how to enjoy a natural environment in the respect of it!
