The space

'La Touche is a former manorial hamlet in Courleon, with its own private driveway. It stands on a slight rise in tranquil surroundings of fields and woods, near the market towns of Saumur and Bourgueil. The accommodation provides an idyllic country retreat in the Loire Valley just 20 minutes from the River Loire with castles and vineyards. It has been beautifully and sympathetically restored in local white stone "tuffeau". The heated pool is in a quiet, separate and secure courtyard with an established garden and close to the Games & Music Room for the more energetic. La Touche is situated near to great woodlands to walk or bike in (bicycles available free of charge).

We are Penny & Peter an English couple who have been letting our place to guests for the last 10 years. We understand how important it is to have a sense of your own space to relax in and our place is a" home away from home". We have slowly been retiring into French life with renovation projects to keep us busy. We enjoy discovering new things and places out here, be it a new market or a great bottle of wine. We invite you make yourself at home, enjoy the beautiful surroundings, whether that is lounging by the pool or getting out to a few castles and neighbouring towns.

Happy Holidays,
Peter & Penny

We had a lovely time here for 5 days with our two young kids. The location is quiet, beautiful and perfect for exploring the Loire. Peter was very accessible and accommodating. Would love to return.

It was wonderful to stay at Peter and Penny's Gite, thought it was quite hot during our stay. Lovely countryside with sunflowers fields, ancient stone house, very friendly guests there and detailed travel information was offered.

We visited La Touche (four adults, two couples) in September 2014. Gite One was perfect for our needs. It has two well proportioned double bedrooms (one upstairs, one down) with very comfortable beds. One of our party who is a poor sleeper remarked that he slept far better at …

I have nothing but positive feedback. The gite was just lovely as we're the pool and gardens. Peter and Penny are delightful hosts. The kids also loved the large games room. I just hope we can find time to visit again.
