The gite and grounds are absolutely fantastic. We were warmly welcomed by Rosemary and Richard and given as much help with navigating the local area as we needed during our stay. It was a lovely peaceful place to be and the facilities in the gite were superb. There is plenty to do locally but we enjoyed just relaxing in the lovely garden. Nice to have friendly animals to share the facilities with too! All in all, the best family holiday that weve ever had and were looking forward to returning next year. Thank you Rosemary and Richard for all of your care and attention!

The Gite is tremendous and Rosemary and Richard with Daisy could not have been more helpful. The area is quiet but that was just what we wanted for the children to run around safely and have a swim. A restaurant /Bar 5 minutes walk away was an excellent break for an early evening aperitif. The Tennis courts and the Pedelo the children also enjoyed. We had a great time and so easy with Villarenters

We have just returned from 2 weeks staying at the gite - and none of us wanted to come home. The house is lovely - antique furniture, attractively decorated rooms and plenty of bathrooms (all bedrooms are en suite which, with 2 adults and 3 teenagers, was invaluable). An indoor BBQ in the conservatory/dining room was great fun. I think what we enjoyed most was the grounds, which are heavenly - huge gardens, beautifully planted with shrubs and trees, so that the view from every window is glorious. The chapel and the manor itself are perfect. There is a boating lake that was enormous fun, and a 5 minute stroll away is a very good bar/restaurant beside a lake where there are pedaloes for hire. The swimming pool in the grounds was great...made me feel I was fighting off the croissants! There is masses to do nearby. We avoided the really big, famous chateaux (couldnt bear the idea of braving enormous queues!) but found lots of smaller ones nearby, all beautiful and fascinating - eg Loches with its medieval citadel, Montresor, Valencay and Selles sur Cher which was intriguing because of its vast dilapidation...a great crumbling ruin, half furnished. There are many markets and small villages and towns to potter around in, an enormous zoo nearby...though often what we wanted to do was sit in the garden of the gite and read, and wish we lived there! The hosts were wonderful - helpful about local attractions/shopping hours etc, and fascinating to talk to. The dog and the two pigs were added attractions...and you can buy milk straight from the cow at the neighbouring farm. A heavenly holiday...we really didnt want to come home!

We throughly enjoyed our stay at the Manor and I would recommend it to anyone. The location of the Manor is ideal for those wanting to tour the Loire Valley, the Chateaux, and the Loire wine country. Richard and his staff were very gratious and friendly they went out of their way to help us, especially the first day when we arrived very late.

The Large family gite in Manoir de la Fouquetiere was outstanding. The whole complex was rich in history and tranquility and has been tastefully renovated. The owners were extremely helpful and made our stay relaxing. Filled with interesting antiques and comfortable sitting areas, the gite was warm, clean and offered our family of 6 lots of space. There are a large range of books and activities in the gite, but the outside areas were a favourite with the pool, swing, forest area, grassed areas, lake for fishing and keeping up with the cats, pigs and dog. We enjoyed the nearby dairy and the camping area across the road (5 mins walk) that proved to have a gourmet restaurant an extensive playground and large lake for boating and fishing.

Lowely Gite in charming countryside. We had a nice time there with my family (2+3). Our kids loved the wild boars in the backyard. Rosemary and Richard were really helpful and nice to us. They gave us good information about places to visit etc. Well be back for sure!

Experience real life in real rural France by booking a stay at the Manoir de la Foulquetiere. We stayed in the Manoir itself, a lovingly restored and tastefully decorated gem in the beautiful French countryside in Indre. The gite was spacious and fully equipped. A tranquil rural idyll set in its own grounds, it makes the perfect family gite. Go for evening strolls in the Manoirs own forest. Chat with the welcoming local people in the nearby villages of Lucay le Male and Eceuille. Table tennis is available in the grounds of the gite. Just five minutes walk from the gite across the road is a pleasant camping and chalet site which has three well maintained tennis courts - these are available to hire for 5 euros an hour. Rosemary and Richard are attentive and gracious hosts. Our son, aged 11, loved Alfie, the owners family friendly dog and the two cats, Chloe and Bat. An excellent gite - would thoroughly recommend for a perfect family holiday.

We enjoyed a lovely stay at the Manoir de la Foulquetiere a warm welcome, amazing grounds...lots of room for children to run around, pot belly pigs to feed in the garden! Inside we found big beautifully decorated clean rooms and there is a really unique indoor BBQ which cooked superb steak! This really is a holiday gem, for us it was quiet and relaxing but just a short distance from 2 pretty villages and a larger town with a big Chateaux (great for a family day out - animals, a maze, bouncy castles). We holiday in France a lot and this is property is one that we would visit again.

What a fantastic place and what Lovely people. Despite concerns about the weather we went in november and yes it was chilly but so divine. The accommodation was lovely and cosy and after a long day of chateau touring we chilled out in our beautiful gite in front of our huge fireplace with a cup of tea followed by wine and cheese. Divine place and divine people. Working on convincing my husband to take me again!

We had an excellent holiday and Rosemary could not have done more for us. Mind she did not do very well with the weather - no sun for 2 weeks!! The grounds and the Gite are peaceful, well cared for and make an excellent base for the Loire Chateau collection. Good local restaurants and Richard has a very good local wine man! A great place.
