“Fabulous property with lovely pool in a great location”

From the moment we arrived our hosts, Ray and Maureen, could not have been more welcoming and helpful.
Les Cedres is full of character and very spacious. The courtyard garden with built-in barbecue is lovely and the additional terraced area to the rear of the house means you're spoilt for choice in terms of al-fresco dining!
The recently completed pool is a real sun-trap and provides a great place to cool off when the temperature is in the mid 30's.
The nearby village of Abilly is very attractive and the supermarket in Descartes is just a 10 minute drive.
Situated in the grounds of the elegant Chateau des Termelles, Les Cedres is the perfect base for exploring many of the iconic chateaux of the Loire Valley. We visited Chinon, Azay le Rideau and Blois, for example.
Alternatively, you can hire a canoe to explore the rivers, cycle through the beautiful countryside of 'La France Profonde", sample local wines at one (or more!) of the many vineyards, etc. etc. The possibilities are endless but, sadly, holidays are not and our two weeks at Les Cedres flew by all too quickly.

“Great accommodation in beautiful town of Abilly”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2015

We had a fantastic time with a large group of friends staying in the 3 pavilions/houses that have been very recently renovated and are modern while still beautifully keeping the classic features of the original buildings. We loved spending time around the swimming pool just at the back of the house.

The Château Des Termelles is an amazing building with a beautiful view over the 20 acre private gardens. The owners even let us have a 1920's night at part of the Chateau where we took the opportunity to get dressed up for the occasion in our Tux's and ball gowns!

The town of Abilly is only 3-5 minutes walk away which is a nice local town with a shop and patisserie for your essentials. We even made it down to the local tractor festival which was a great opportunity to talk to the locals over a pamplemouse or two.

For a large supermarket, restaurants and bars you can go to Descartes which is only 6km away. There is also a number of other amenities and we had a great day out Kayaking.

Overall a great place for a peaceful holiday in tranquil surroundings and to experience the true local environment of southern France. I would certainly recommend a visit

“Lovely spot with great pool!”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a lovely stay here with my two young daughters. The heated outdoor pool is wonderful, the house is huge and very comfortable and the location - in a very pretty town - is ideal for getting to lots of the best chateaux - few are more than an hour away. Ray is a wonderful, kind and helpful host.

“At last! A property that matches the description.”

We've had a couple of breaks at this fabulous chateau. Together with its gites, it offers everything that a couple, family or larger group could want for a great holiday. All the accommodation has been very recently renovated and it shows in the quality of the facilities. The chateau has a real feeling of opulence and it's quite something to approach it via the winding drive and mount its entrance steps. You feel like a French aristocrat...minus the guillotine of course! We felt relaxed, comfortable and spoilt and the owners have ensured that guests have absolutely everything they need.
Our bedroom was great, with its own facilities and a beautiful view over the grounds, down to the gates and on to the village. It was a pleasure to cook in the huge kitchen
and dine in the period dining room, while the billiards room with its full size table was perfect to relax in with a small digestif after dinner before mounting the winding staircase to our room.
During the day, if not exploring the charming village and riverside island or the well signed walks, the pool offered a welcome relief from the sunshine and provided a great place to relax, especially on a lazy French evening barbecue with the freshly chilled Vouvray close to hand.
Go there! You'll love it!

Liked best: The whole experience of driving up the drive to the chateau and its gites.
Liked least: Abilly is a little quiet but this has its own advantages. It's very pretty and there are lots of signed walks from the river.
